Hi, I've got an Ally through Verizon and run into the storage limit when installing apps to the phone. I was happy to hear that with the Froyo OTA update my Ally would be able to move apps to load from SD. However, only two very small games allowed me to. Every other app had the "Move to SD" button grayed out.
What's going on? Did I miss the update, or have to do something extra? I'd really like to make use of my new 16GB SD card and not have to worry about space limits anymore!

It is up to the developer if the app can be moved to the SD card or no. If that option is grayed out the developer had not set the app up to run from there.
So welcome to the club. Those of us who want to either move the stuff we don't want on the phone (or delete it) and can't do that because the phone provider has decided we need to keep the stuff we will never use.
The only answer that is able to get rid of some of the trash is to root the phone, take back control, don't let the ISP tell you what you have to have on your phone. If you want to root your phone (which does void your warranty) look through some of the threads here and you will find more info on how to root the phone.
OK, that's what what I'd half expected. I think my phone's outside of warranty anyway, but had been hoping to avoid mucking about with workarounds. I read elsewhere that the Ally uses the internal storage as memory in place of dedicated RAM, making it run slowly when too full. Is that true? If it is then I really need to do something about it.
Besides possibility of bricking, are there any drawbacks to rooting the Ally? I'd like to keep using the Market app, getting OTA updates, etc.
One does not lose Market functions when rooted. The only thing that's lost is the possibility of OTAs and I'm nearly 100% sure the Ally will not be getting anymore of them. It's life cycle is over and isn't avaliable on the Verizon site either.
There really aren't any drawbacks to rooting if you're out of warrantee. The root process is fairly straightforward these days too. Check out the root section of the Ally forums at Androidfourns.com
Although I have not rooted yet, I agree with Valkerie. At this point rooting won't hurt since the phone is EOL. I don't expect anymore OTAs either and the LG Forum no longer has the LG Ally threads at the top of the boards. Even if there was another OTA, the ROMs you can flash on the Ally after rooting are more than likely better than the OTA.
Thanks for the info! I'm still a bit nervous, but I think I'll do it.
Though I have another question. My 16 GB SD card is only Class 2, while the 4 GB one from Verizon is Class 4. Will going down in speed impact the phone's performance? Don't want any slowdowns, but also don't want to pay extra for a Class 10 if the Ally can only take advantage of Class 4 speeds. Plan to store apps, music and photos on it, not much video.
The class determines the speed that the card saves data at. A class 2 has a speed of 2MB per second and a class 4 has a speed of 4MB per second. You will have performance issues with a class 2. I have issues using the class 4 that came with the phone.
There is also a class 6 (6MB/s) and the class 10 (10MB/s). I think a 6 would be best with a 10 for those who do take a lot of videos.
Just to confuse things, a class 1 SDHD is actually faster than a class 10 (it has a speed of 45MB/s) but it is not compatible with the Ally. I only mention it so that if you are going by class you realize that different types of SD cards have different speeds.
