    Ive searched & searched, but cant find the answer.
    So where are the apps {market & non-market} stored/saved on the phones internal memory?
    Im rooted if that helps, & Im asking b/c I want to save some apps to my SD card or on my computer so I can play around with some ROMS, & updates.

    Also can non-market {downloaded} apps be moved to where the market apps are stored?

    thanks a bunch, & please, i need this help

    Private apps are at /data/app-private

    Try using "root explorer" it works very well.

    If i am not mistaken aps that are hard codded in the rom are stored in /system/app and the market ones are /data/app and /data/app-private

    you will need something like root explorer to get to it

    "Root explorer" was the only one I could get to see what's in those folders
