    You just have to WAIT. The same thing happened when I moved Jewels using the "Official Froyo" method because it was supported. All I had in place of the icon was the generic white and green droid. After about 30 minutes or so the icon was back and everything worked like a charm. So it isn't just this little hack that does this. Apps2SD through the OS does it as well.

    haha if you use your droid alot, you WILL run out of space
    150 mbs seems like a lot, but it isnt
    google earth - 16mb
    backbreaker -16mb
    asphalt - 9 mb
    apps like that gobble up memory like a turkey

    you can move swype, just go to settings and enable it
    (for some reason its disabled) your special swype settings are still there

    Quick question.

    I went and installed google earth, it installed right to the SD card. (I had it off the phone because it took up to much space)

    Can others confirm apps are being installed directly to the SD card.

    I wish an option would pop up when installing.

    Also, is there a way to stop apps from installing right to the SD card?

    Is this also effective for changing to different Operating Systems, like downgrading or ugprading is it a good way to keep your apps and settings?

    Hey what do you mean by "from /system/bin (invoking sh for shell)"? I tried "sh pm setInstallLocation 2" and it says "sh: cannot open 'pm'". Any ideas on how to get this to work?

    1. Open up terminal emulator
    2. Type "su"
    3. type "pm setInstallLocation 2"
    It means from the directory /system/bin, meaning that they did a cd to /system/bin before running that command. That shouldn't be necessary - you should be able to just type "pm setInstallLocation 2"

    Make sure that the ONLY capital letters there are the I and the L.

    First things first. Try just entering super user mode in the terminal and then type pm setInstallLocation 2 and see if that works. If not then you have to type the following in the terminal:

    su (press enter)
    cd /system/bin (press enter)
    then sh pm setInstallLocation 2 (press enter)

    Thanks a lot man! I tried the second method and it worked like a charm! I must have a bad mapping to system commands like Boofster said. Either way, it works now so thanks a million! :D
