    Same here. I pulled my phone from the charger at 730 and now it is close to 1130 at 90% battery. Still a block of ice with the CPU average in the mid 60s when woken up.

    The app itself has to allow it to be moved to SD Card. Check each app individually and you'll probably find a half dozen or so that can be moved to SD Card. I try to check each app at least once each week to see if something got updated to allow SDCard.

    it is definitely worth the update. im not into rooting or doing anything unofficially but i gave it and im much happier now.

    i can't find the original site i used to update, it was the best tutorial too, but this one is good. this isnt the official update that will be coming out in about two weeks, but its well worth it anyone.

    I was under the impression you still have to "activate" it on the phone...weren't there are few lines you need to enter in Terminal? I had it before FRG22, but after updating I've noticed all my apps (including those that used to be on SD) have the option grayed out in the settings menu.

    Nope. Native in FroYo.

    Hmmm...hope we're not splitting hairs here. The function is native, but on the earlier Froyo releases it needed to be "activated." I'm puzzled why I've got FRG22 (virgin, not a custom ROM) and when I go to application settings, the option to move to SD is grayed out for all my apps. Any thoughts?

    If it's grayed out it's because the application itself doesn't support moving it. The application developer has to enable it within the app itself. Some ROMS, like Bugless Beast (if I remember correctly), have it set up so you can force all the apps to the SD card, and putting an app on the SD card in no way affects its performance with very few exceptions (some widgets require being on the phone's storage), so why more devs aren't doing this is beyond me.

    Heck, from what I've seen, storing the app on the SD card often uses less overall storage space than storing it on the phone!

    Now, if I'm mistaken, someone please correct me, but that's what I've been hearing from everyone in the know and my experience backs it up.

    Thanks, my bad. When I checked the first time (randomly, of course) all the apps looked turned off. But I went back and double-checked, and found a few. It's strange...I remember more having the option in the previous leak (a lot, actually). Probably what happened is I did wipe before FRG22, didn't reinstall a lot of the crap, and now that those apps are gone, I have fewer that permit apps2sd. :)

    And yeah, my experience suggests it helps, too.

    Google Googles

    For those that are having trouble with google googles try this.

    Use root explorer to delete the google googles apk file from system/app. Reboot, gotto market and download google googles from market. All should be fine now. You may keep the apk file where it is or move it to system/app.

    running really hot

    Hi, noob here. I recently swapped in this build for the last one that was out and have been running extremely hot. At first I thought it was the kernel, I'd been using P3 low voltage kernels and had no temp issues with the earlier build. I've tried 3 differnt kernels with this build and the heat issues have gotten worse. My heat profile kicked in earlier today while I was just using pandora and u/c @ 500Mhz? Is there something I'm missing, or can the actual ROM be a problem for my phone?
