    Hi folks...running froyo 2.2 bbv0.5 with fabolous' nextheme and have a question. Just downloaded an app and got a warning that I'm low on memory. Went to the manage applications menu and looked at those that are on SD card and there were only about 4 or 5 of the 50-60 apps I have downloaded. Granted, I don't use them all, so there's always room to clear house a little, but I know there has to be a way to store them on the SD card. How do I do this? Is there a way to run apps from the SD card?
    Also, I have a ton of pics/movies that I've taken with the camera...I thought those were stored on the SD card. Will I have to transfer those? How? The only way I can think of to do this is via Astro but have no idea regarding the apps. Thanks!

    since you are rooted, download Move2SD Enabler from the Market. using it will allow you to save almost all of your apps on your SD card. the only ones that cannot/should not be moved are native apps, root apps, and any apps you use a widget for.

    use Tibu, and then you can go to batch, select move to sd card. This will allow you to move everything to the sd card. You can pick and choose
