It is in the public folder, anyway this is exactly how it looks like:

c:\sdk-tools>adb devices
List of devices attached
HTxxxxxxxxx device

c:\sdk-tools>adb shell
$ pm setInstallLocation 2
pm setInstallLocation 2
$ exit
exit


btw, I'm running windows 7 64-bit

It's worked then (unless it gave an error).

There are some things that can't be moved to the SD Card but any apps you've installed since running the command should be on the SD Card.

What worries me about the process is that I had no * daemon started successfully * messages, though I'm not sure what they mean...

The only app I can move to the SD card is HTC Sync. For all the rest (eg. Adobe Reader, Market, Maps, HTC Likes, Gmail, Navi Expert, Talk , Youtube ) the "Move to SD card" option is greyed out. These applications were pre-installed, "courtesy" of T-mobile, maybe that's the reason...?

Yeah, a lot of the pre installed stuff you can't move as it's installed on the system partition, anything you've downloaded yourself should be ok to move though.

Default Problems

Hi, I'm having the same problem as some people above, I've installed htc sync and the mini version of the sdk onto my computer, the phone is connected in charge only mode and debugging is on. But it doesn't seem to be recognising my device; I get the List of Devices attached but no device written underneath. Don't know if this makes a difference but when I try and use htc sync normally it won't recognise my phone either. I also don't seem to have a htc sync app on my phone, should I?Do you know how to fix this?

Hi!

I have the same annoying problem that apps cannot be installed in the internal memory...
I followed the steps (installed sdk manager -> installer_r16-windows.exe from this page Android SDK | Android Developers and enable the USB debugging from my htc wildfire s)

The problem is in the command prompt when I type adb devices the only feedback that I receive it "List of devices attached" What else I can do to proceed?
(I have to mention also that I installed from the SDK manager the Android sdk platform-tools and google USB Driver package)

Thanks in advance!

C:\Documents and Settings\Visnja>cd\sdk-tools
The system cannot find the path specified

I have tried everything, i have htc sync, it works, the sdk-tools file is in my documents and settings, i dont know why it is not working.....maybe my old XP version doesnt support it, although i dont see why it wouldnt...

I am a bit slow and stupid when it comes to computers but if enyone can help me it would be great...Ty very much

Is it possible that this 'cure' cost 30MB of space?
I used to have 150MB. I completely deleted everything on my phone (a reset) and then I did what was described and now I only have 120MB of data left.

Can you also undo what you described in the first post?

[edit]
I found out that when I got the phone I used to have 150mb of data, with 122mb of data left. This is exactly what I got when I did the factory reset.
I believe to undo 'forcing apps to install to the sd card without root' is to do a factory reset again. (Or the easy way: set "pm setInstallLocation 0")

Another question: will you need an app like "move app 2 sd" or will this installation do that for you?

Yeah, pm setInstallLocation 0 means the app will select whatever its defalut is set too, pm setInstallLocation 1 means the app will install to the internal memory.

You don't need apps2sd with this either.

I did need app2sd to move the apps that weren't moved automatically. However, with resetting my phone and using this installations I think I saved about 40mb! Nice work

I clicked the thanks button to El Presidente for this, which has all worked a treat. Only one peculiarity when I did it - which may have been picked up already...I haven't read all the messages above. That was that the command 'Exit' - which I carefully put in with an initial capital in view of the earlier strictures, produced a 'permission denied' response. Changing it to 'exit' got me out... Phew...!

Confused Love this, but not sure if it worked....

i did everything you told me, but i downloaded angry birds and it defaulted on the phone memory, i think angry birds is sd compatible so i moved it over without a hitch, but perhaps i misunderstood, would i be able to default install apps to the sd card, or will i have to go through the process mentioned above, download, then install to sd card.....

ThankS!!!

After the process is done, all apps should install to SD Card by default. For a lot of apps, a certain %age of the app will need to remain on the phones internal memory.

If there are apps on there already, I think you'll need to move them over manually.

When I get time, I'll see about writing a batch file which automates the process. Not promising when though so don't hold your breath .

Thanks so much.... Does it hurt to redo the process again? Say, when the batch comes out?

I tried this afternoon to run this fix on my daughter's phone. I put the mini SDk into Documents, also left the original in my downloads. I installed HTC Sync onto my desktop, although this did seem to take quite a while for some reason.
Enabled debugging on the phone and connected in charge only.
However once in command prompt I could not find the SDK-Tools in documants at all. I typed various commands : cd\SDK-Tools also Documents\sdk-tools plus othes that people have tried, but without success.
When I went back to my desktop I tried running HTC Sync and it would not recognise the phone, even with debugging disabled and HTC Sync selected on the phone, could this be the reason why I cannot find SDK-Tools ?
I also plugged my Desire HD into the desktop and HTC Sync would not connect either.I eventually ran out of time before I could try re-installing HTC Sync.

Hi Pablo, if you extract the SDK Tools to the root of your C Drive as opposed to another folder so it's located in C:\SDK-Tools, does that make a difference?

Also, what OS are you using?

Hi EP thanks for taking the time to reply .
I haven't yet tried extracting the SDK Tools to the C drive, I wasn't sure how and where to extract it to really, so just put it in My Docs. I am running Vista on my desktop.
I will re-install HTC Sync and then try connecting my Desire to see if it is ok, I then have to try and prise my daughters phone from her long enough to try the fix again, hopefully it will be sometime over the weekend.

Can I try and find the C:\SDK-Tools without having her phone connected ?

No problem Pablo!

It could be HTC Sync that's the issue, I seem to recall it's problematic with Vista.

I'll have a look around, see if I can find just the drivers (not the app itself) as you only need the drivers associated for the PC to recognise the phone.

In the interim, fire on with extracting to the root of the C:\ drive and navigate to C:\SDK Tools.

Please can you tell me how to run this in Windows 7 which doesn't have "run" in the Start Menu so I don't know how to input the dos commands.

Also is it not possible to choose to install apps onto the sd card without having to do this sort of procedure? My old Symbian Nokia can do it if only there were some decent apps to install.

Is there a search box/text field in the start menu? Type cmd in there and click the icon which comes up called cmd.exe.

You can move some stuff over, but the procedure is needed for making the SD Card the default installation directory.

Many thanks, it worked first time for me. I was a little concerned about the permission denied on exit, but it does not seem to be a problem. After I disconnected, a bunch of apps became available to app2SD and I moved them over. Now the upgrade can install. Hurrah.

Once again, thanks for your work and time.

I've seen there is a problem when your successfully finished patching. So you disconnect your phone and try to move a app onto your SD Card. It's blacked out... So I found out you must reboot your phone. When your phone has successfully rebooted, you are allowed to move a app onto the SD Card.

Just to point out apps you DOWNLOADED can be moved only.

Only just gotten around to trying my daughter's phone since last week. We can now find SDK-Tools ok but can't manage any further than that !
My Desire HD connects to HTC Sync fine, but when we try to connect the Wildfire, it cannot find or open Sync ?
We have tried uninstalling Sync and reinstalling, also restarting everything and really are stuck and peeed off with it all now !
El Presidente, we need your help

HTC Sync doesn't actually need to be open for this to work, it just needs the drivers that go along with it.

Have you tried the process at all? Does the PC recognise the phone is plugged in?

Managed to sort my daughter's phone at last . I did receive two mails from HTC which were quite informative, although just went over all that EP recommended . We just connected her Wildfire up to her Notebook and ran the procedure, all worked fine , even though Sync still doesn't respond .
She's now very happy with her moby, I'm happy that she's happy , so all is good ! Thanks again for the assistance EP .

Sorry, had a pretty busy weekend or I would've responded earlier

I'm glad you sorted it though.
