    Hey guys,

    I have done some searching here and else where. I have seen lots of questions about Apps2sd...but very few answers.

    I have no problem rooting and installing a ROM (and will, once they are hashed out enough that they are not being updated multiple times a week). I understand that with the Droid being still very new...and the development has really only had full access for a few months now..so it is unrealistic to expect it to be available and safe yet.

    While I know that there are some instructions out there to get Apps2sd...they all either predate the Droid...do not work on a ROM unless enabled (which so far none are)...or warn that if you are not skilled in ADB and Linux you can easily brick or at least screw up your phone.

    So I am trying to find if any Droid ROM has this enabled or will soon.

    1) Does anyone know if this is being worked on?
    2) Is there an ETA?
    3) Where can I find a good place to keep updated on if/when this will be available?

    Thanks!

    it won't work with any droid roms

    it specifically says it has to be a rom with this option enabled

    right....my understanding was that while it is possible...apps2sd is still very raw...and there is still a good chance you can mess up your phone if you dont know what to do.

    So I should have been a little more clear...my questions were specifically regarding a ROM with this all done already so I cant mess it up.

    Thanks,

    1) It has not stopped being in development and is a separate development process than Android ROMs.
    2) No, it will probably not be coming to the Droid any time soon.
    3) Don't bother, all of the Droid ROM devs have come out against Apps2SD.

    FYI in addition to the lack of ROMs there's other reasons to avoid this. 1st you'll need to update your SD card (the class 2 that came with the phone is just to slow to be useful). 2nd this will (given enough use) shorten the life your SD card(s).
