    Once I download an apk and place it on sd, and install it with astro file manager, does the apk have to stay on sd card or is it permanently installed to system until deletion?

    For example my SuperUser.apk, wireless tether.apk and swype.apk were installed from sd through astro. I also have these apk's backed up with titanium backup. If i delete them from sd will they be removed and uninstalled from my system?

    Also... I did a nandroid backup with the great clockwork recovery. This only backs up ROM and not apps/apks....right?


    Thanks in advance. Any answers are much appreciated.

    Moving this to the Root subforum as you might get a better answer from a knowledgeable root community.

    you do not need to keep the apk on your sd card after you have installed it... and NAND backs up everything that was on your phone when u backed it up.
