    just got my droid x yesterday and one thing that i want to do is move stuff to the SD Card. I go into the App Manager and the option is greyed out on every app. Am I missing Something.

    Are you running 2.2 or 2.1? You can't move apps unless your running 2.2.

    I also noticed on my D2 that the moment I rooted I was able to move a lot more apps.

    Moving to the X section where other X members will read and be able to provide support.

    Some apps cannot be moved at all. Download the apps2sd app from the market. Its listed as a dolphin addon, but it works as a standalone app. It will show you all the apps that can be moved and will move them for you

    Sent from my DROID2 using DroidForums App

    Running Root Explorer, which requires "root" on the DX allows you to move basically anything.

    yeah i understand some but not a single one can be moved. I have installed Iheartradio, app killer, Beautiful widgets, heavy gunner, asphalt 5, gangstar and others and not one can be moved. Seems more like a lock is on or something. Maybe it's just coincedence.

    why move em to the SD card when your phone has plenty of internal memory for a ton of apps, i say. plus you cant really use the internal memory for storing anything else besides contacts, email, texts, etc
