Hello there... I just rooted my Samsung Galaxy Prevail with Gingerbread 2.3.5 using a video tutorial and I did all this after doing a factory reset of my phone. Now, I want to utilize the 32 Gb MicroSD card that I paid $50 dollars for. With the rooted phone I have SuperUser as well as busy box. I want to destroy the bloatware on my phone and move all apps (as much as I can) to the SDcard.
I've learned that you can't move the data/cache files to the SDcard and the app data is still saved to the phone's internal memory!? I'm wanting to piss, cuss and swear because Samsung put such a small mount of memory in my phone that, to me, it stifles the beauty and functionality of Android but I'm stuck with this phone after buying it two weeks ago. It's so Mickey Mouse than they didn't at least stick 1-2 gbs of memory. a few hundred megabytes is super ******ed. Obviously, Samsung wasn't putting the consumer first.. And we all wonder why people are occupying wall street!? :/
Anyways, enough of the rant... I want to figure out how to move everything to the SDcard and still have a powerfully functional entry Android as this is my first smart phone. If anything, I'll learn how to use and manipulate the Android platform!
Besides moving all the Apps 2 the SD, is there a minimalistic & streamlined way that I could store all the data and cache files on the SDCard as well!? I'd rather not use the phone's internal memory at all, seriously! I would rather hack my way through this phone's SERIOUS limitations and use the SDcard to it's full advantage. I don't give a shit about Widgets. So don't worry about those.
I would like to use this thread as a resource to build this personal project on and maybe it could be beneficial to other nerds like myself. But I am just a script kiddie and have a lot to learn. So please be patient with me. This is my first Android. And I am learning how to do all this. Maybe I am being forced to learn all this because of my phone limitations. For me, it's a personal portable computer though and I didn't want to get stuck in a two year contract. So any help on hacking this phone to the ground would be excellent.
