    Just tried it on mine. I moved about 10 apps to the SD card. 2 or 3 of them had the "failed to move" on the first click.
    Every time a phone is rooted, an angel gets its wings.

    Speaking of sdcard related issues (possibly)....does any one else have problems when having apps on sdcard? I use to have a lot of my apps on sdcard but launcher pro would fc on reboots and when I mount and unmount sdcard. So I moved all but like 5 apps to internal and it still is slow but don't fc. Any suggestions? I thought it was a sdcard problem but now I don't think that it is.

    I get the same message when moving apps to sd also. Not sure why it does that. And yes, you dont want to move launchers and widgets to sdcard. Keep those internal.

    I get the same thing sometimes. I think it happens when you are moving apps that aren't meant for apps2sd. Usually when you do it if the app is running it will ask if you want to close the app I think. Maybe with ones that are not apps2sd enabled the first try fails, but closes the app (it doesn't work "nicely" like it does with apps2sd enabled apps), then the second try succeeds because the app is closed.

    That is just my theory haha.

    Good theory. Sounds like that could be the problem to me also.

    I always figured it was a bug. Since it's easy to work around, I never really worried about it *LOL*
