    Hi, first post.

    I have a rooted Desire with 2.2.

    I've been using the set InstallLocation command to force my apps onto the SD card.

    This as been working ok and I can confirm the apps are saved on the card. However my internal memory does not seem to be changing at all, it's still on the same amount that I started with before saving the apps.

    Any ideas?

    Are all your apps working ok?, if so then you have nothing to worry about ust be glad you have loads of internal memory left

    The phone has been restarted a number of times since I've started using the method to force move the apps. Still showing the same size

    If its like the app mod install location then you need root for it to work.
