    Hey all, I tried WilliamJ1's thread for noobs about how to make your phone install apps to the sd card even if they're not configured that way. His was for the Desire.

    Everything he described in the cmd process went off without errors, exactly as he laid it out. Problem is, it doesn't seem to have done anything. I can't move the apps over, and new apps still install in the memory. Can this be done on an Optimus S? I really don't want to root the phone, as I just got it.

    Thanks.

    Without rooting there is not much you can do. Just go into each app and see if it will let you send it to SD or not. Some do some don't. That is just the way it is. I have not rooted my phone nor do I intend to either.

    After the phone gets its Android 2.3 upgrade, I'm probably going to root it. What's maddening is that that method I described worked for some people.
