    I think he means he wants to run it from the SD card. Sorry buddy, I don't think that has been accomplished on the Moment yet. If it was possible you would literally see a dozen threads on this. It has to be on the phone, about 12mb file i think.

    He is right! It doesn't take a huge amount of space though. Are you already full?

    Nope, But I figure why use internal space...I downloaded of SDX to sd card so i figured i could run from it. So I added astro, v5 root and i'm not to sure how to delete stock application like jewel...Also can't seem to see any of the stock apps in manage applications for only the ones i downloaded from market...I will download swype to phone...

    Also Stock sms is driving me crazy, cause i have handset and getting two messages...want to disable stock mesaging and i've checked handset as default so not sure why i'm still getting both? Thanks!

    figured sms out...sorry! had notification set on stock app..i'm a noob But don't know how to root even though i installed it.

    You have to disable the notification in the stock app. Open the stock app and hit menu > settings and uncheck the box for notifications.

    If you rooted you can download somehting like Connect Bot and then open a local session and type su and press enter. If you see a # sign you are rooted. Just download Root Explorer, much easier. I have posted directions on other threads and many others have as well. Just look around the posts, there are a lot of different methods. :D You can't jus select them like other apps you downloaded from the market and uninstall.

    Try rebooting you phone, I read over at SDX that this might help with your problem.

    I have to ask why? For something that you would run often it sure would slow down your phone running it off the card.

    Sure, no problem? the reason I ask if i could run of sd card was for storage space...for no other reason? I do have it working, but ther's a bug on DD10, because I can't default swype just alone and when I do unchench android keyboard it checks back...another is I can't get it not to sound eeven thougheverything that i can think off is unchecked to no sound on keyboard...but i can live with it, cause i really love swype!

    Oh, And NO...! I'm not full in storage space...Thanks for the help!!;)

    If Swype isn't your default keyboard then you didn't follow my instructions properly.

    Can you share the how to's? I heard of other people who said they had the same issue? the only thing I can say that the version I had previousky 1.16? vs, what i have now 1.25 i thought that is what might be the case?

    so i guess i would have to uninstalled and do what? Oh, what version of swype i should be running
    Thanks!
