    I'm curious why no one has made an app or ROM that will allow us to install an app to the SD card, or run/install an app that exists on the SD card. I know Astro can already backup apps to the SD card, allowing them to be transferred/installed to another user, so the theft issue regarding running apps from the SD card is irrelevant.

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    Btw, Rom Manager says that does not support partitioning on this phone (Droid). Do you know if that is simply because I got the free version, or would the paid version have the same limitation?
