Just install any application.....if it supports MOVE 2 SD option it will be dere in the setting--applications--manage applications...select the application and there will be an option move to sd.,..

not all apps support this currently  :)

you cannot install app on sd by default!

U can actually but its quite a complicated process involving the use of android developing package,hacking n all and is not recommended as some apps have to be installed in internal memory only..but if u hack using this method all apps will goto sd and it will cause problems :)

there is an app which forces all the installed applications to move to SD but i wont give an advice for that bcoz the phone may become more unstable...

Hi, just wanted to say thanks for showing how to do this, I have very little computer ability and was still able to update my Galaxy 5 to froyo using these instructions. To anyone thinking about it I say go for it! it was quick and quite smooth for me, all of my settings and apps remained in place (apart from the carrier installed ones) and after a reboot I was straight into checking out the cool new stuff, I'm even using the wifi hot spot to type this! thanks again...

I followed the instructions to install froyo and I could reboot successfully, But once I power on, I keep seeing com.android.app failing. I don't see my voice talk network for phone.
Then I tried "*#*#7780#*#*" to do factory reset, it solved the application crash problem but I am seeing "Spanish" language. I want English(US) on froyo.
Can you please guide me how to solve this?

It seems that it doesn't have that option to change language.
