    Ok so im having problems with my sd card not deleting my apps. I have uninstalled all my apps and they are still showing in astro. I have tried numerous times to delete them but they will not delete. Its like the sd card keeps unmounting iself and mounting itself back without me telling it to. Has anyone else ever heard of this? My phone is also rooted.

    Unless you are using aps2sd your apps are not stored on your SD card. If you are using a backup app (Astro, MyBackup Pro, or Titanium) and made a backup then the apps can be stored on the card.

    Hope this helps.

    Well im so confused right now. My buddy is the one that rooted my phone to version 2.2 and ever since it has just been messing up. I know the apps are on sd card because when i go to astro and go to /sdcard they all show on there but they have already been uninstalled.

    If he applied the apps2SD then your apps can be on your SD card. I've not used apps2Sd so I'm not able to comment, sorry.

    If you need help I can pass this to others on rescue squad.

    I just talked to him he said its automatically applied with version 2.2? That would be greatly appreciated if you could do that.

    Ok I think you're running bugless beast. Have you tried going into setting: applications: manage apps see if you can move them to phone.

    Have you found anything out? I just tried hooking my phone up to the computer and deleting the files out that way, and it still did not work. As soon as i unplugged the phone and it prepared sd card every file was back on it.
