    Has anyone been able to format their SD card with froyo? When I hit unmount it says it's unmounting but doesn't and just goes back to the way it was before.

    You don't need to reformat your SD card to work with Froyo.

    Yeah I know. That isn't the reason I want to format it. Are you able to unmount your sd?

    I was having fits with my sdcard. A couple times it got stuck unmounting the card. Usually it just took a really long time to unmount. I switched to a lower speed kernel and things are working beter now. I also had difficulty using Sprecovery to backup, restore or install because it would not mount. Been trying to narrow it down for weeks. I am now convinced it is the kernel. But a few days ago I was convinced it was hardware...and I was wrong about that...LOL
