Hi JKK,

I have a question about my Motorola Milestone. How do I download and install the apps on the SD card instead of default phone memory? When I download apps form the market it automatically installs them on the phone memory which I don't want.

Thanks in advance.
Kim

Hello JKK,

How is it that you did not mention the SD card install capability related to rooting? Can you install to SD without rooting?

Thanks & Regards!
