    If you can't use a search box, then you shouldn't root.

    I'm thinking about doing it just to have the ability to store apps on my SD Card... running out of memory using what the phone offers

    Except there is no apps2sd script for the Droid yet.

    OP - PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD use the search here or google next time because this topic has been beaten to death.
