You need to change your ROM. I am using custom one from XDA :)

The steps to install apps to SD Card on Android 2.1 Eclair (Xperia X8, Xperia W8, and more..)

1. First of all, you need to download Link2SD (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.buak.Link2SD) or mediafire link (http://x-droids.blogspot.com/2012/05/download-link2sd-for-android-os.html). It is free and can be downloaded from Android market. You can help the developer by donating it.

Link2SD is much better than App2SD. Try it! It only needs root. It runs on 2.1!vAs we all know already that we can install Apps to SD card with Froyo or Gingerbread. The thing that makes Link2SD so different from the others is that this one supports Android 1.6 and up. Yes, even with Android Eclair is possible to install games to SD card and get some free memory for using.

After installing Link2SD to your Android phones running Android 2.1 or even Android 1.6 you’ll be able to get much more apps than you can imagine. So, before using this free apps you should root your Android phones first. Don’t worry it’s much more easy to root than flashing the whole Android with new ROM.

2. Secondly, you should have two partitions on SD card and both should be primary. The first FAT partition is your standard SD card storage. The second partition is used for application files and can be ext2, ext3, ext4 or FAT32.

Some phones lack the ext2, ext3 or ext4 file system support and you may get mount errors like “no such device”, “invalid argument”. These phones need ext2.ko or ext3.ko modules and even some additional modules to be able to mount. Using FAT32 on the second partition will eleminate such problems, because FAT32 is supported on all phones.

Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself. You can use any partition manager such as Minitool, Paragon, Easeus etc. for this.
