Hi i am planning to but this phone(htc explorer). Plz can u suggest abt this phone.
Since it is an Android phone it most probably will have an app like QuickOffice for Doc files. If not, then one can easily download apps like Documents to GO, OfficeSuite etc. from Android Market.
Does this Phone has a Document Viewer, and if not, how can we open docs??? Please Advise. Thanks.

You need to go through a rooting procedure (unrevoked recommended) and install a custom rom which has support for a2sd+
You can also flash it separately onto any rom providing it has init.d support.
You can download the Dark Tremor Beta separately. See the "Which ROM" section later on.
Pretty much all custom roms have init.d support but stock roms do not. If you want to add init.d support (running scripts at start up [initialisation - hence "init"]) you will have to do this

How do I make it work?
Once you have rooted, you will need to make a partition on your SD card in EXT format. 512MB - 1GB is about right. Swap should = 0. You will then need to flash the custom ROM of choice.
Make sure you have moved all SD Apps back to internal memory first. The "Move to SD" option will be redundant so you must undo this.

If I wanted to do it, is there a step by step process?
Assuming you are rooted;
1) Backup your SD card contents to your PC
2) Download GParted and Burn to CD/USB or use the Gparted with VMware guide.
3) Connect your device in Recovery mode and mount as USB mass storage
4) Resize the existing FAT32 partition from the back, leaving space after it and create an EXT partition in the space. Steps for the GUI are below.
In the drop down menu (top right) select the SD card (be careful not to select your HDD)
Right click on the FAT32 Partition and select resize
Press the Up arrow on "Free Space Following" until you have the desired sizes
right click in unallocated space and select New> EXT format of your choice
5) now you just need to flash your ROM with a2SD+ support.
Alternatively, you can download and ROM manager to partition the SD card, however you cannot easily check the partition is correct. Also, I do not recommend using ROM manager at all. It looks easy to use (and it is) but people using this can get into trouble and it takes away the requirement of knowledge on what it is doing, which is useful to help you get out of trouble.
If you want to change to a new SD card, take a nandroid backup first, copy the entire FAT partition to PC before following the above steps. Once complete, copy data back and nandroid restore.
