I followed the instructions and all seemed to work, was able to move another couple of apps to SD card. Just tried to download a new app to try out and got an error message that there was not enough memory (before I started had over 21MB). Checked on Disk Usage app and System file have gone from about 76MB to 101MB.
Very strange, as I have been typing this I went to my phone to check something and free memory has gone back up to 19.5MB and System file is now 83MB!!!!
Anyway, there is another thread Wildfire S - Low Memory (excessive System Data) regarding systems files which I think would help me but tried it and got permission denied. Wondered if you are able to help with getting round this or where I am going wrong.

I see a lot of users are having issues, I will create a video tomorrow explaining how to do the process and what is needed, this is fairly simple but I guess it is best to do a "monkey see monkey do approach" I will work on it tomorrow and have it done ASAP. Hope it will help a lot of users.

Thank you very much for this post! Worked wonderfully after I restarted my pc. I have a few apps that have widgets, however I don't use those widgets. But can I still move them to the sd card? Thanks

Please could you explain exactly what you mean by navigating to the adb folder again? and where should I type in 'adb shell', is it on the command prompt screen??
I will be grateful for any help you can offer.

Just follow the first post and you'll be fine

Or, are you having issues? Did it give any error messages?

Lennon, is there another folder in SDK Tools called sdk tools? If yes, you'd need to type cd\sdk-tools\sdk-tools, then try adb devices.

Make sure you run the adb.exe(double click on it) file before using DOS for "adb devices" command.

Also make sure you running the DOS from lets say C:\Android ( this folder should contain fastboot.exe, adb.exe and AdbWinApi.dll files).

If it still doesn't work, look at the tutorial on how to setup/integrate android-sdk commands into windows system.


Adb Guide

Quote:
Note: This will vary from OS to OS. This guide is for Windows 7.

1. After you have installed SDK, make a note of where it is installed (I have mine directly on the root of the C\: drive, for simplicity). Then click your start button, and right click 'computer'.

2. Click properties

3. On the left pane, click "advanced system settings"

4. Click "environment variables" on the pop up that comes up

5. Next, look on the second pane in the second pop up that shows up (system variables) and scroll down to path.

6. Highlight it, and click on "edit"

7. Move the cursor to the end of the text, making sure you don't delete anything, and add a semi-colon. Next, without any spaces type the following, modified to your computer.

C:\android\android-windows-sdk\platform-tools

Now, since I have mine set directly on my C\: drive, there is no other folder in there. But, if you have yours set up in your Program Files folder, it would look something like this

C:\program files\android\android-windows-sdk\platform-tools

As I said, you need to modify the PATH you enter to fit your computer.

The next step is to do the same with Java.

So, add the semi-colon, then the path. In my case it's

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin\java.exe

Unless you've changed the directory, it will probably be similar for you. But, make sure of the version you are running.

Once you have set the new paths, click ok, then OK on the enviornment variables window, and apply on the system properties window.

At this point, you no longer have to cd to platform-tools to use adb or java. This also allows you to use 3rd party script tools such as apk manager.

I followed the instructions and it all seemed to be fine, I am able to move apps to the SD-card but new apps still won't install directly to my SD-card. They all install to my phone's internal memory first.

Did I do something wrong?

Edit; oh some apps move to the external memory. How is this possible?

And out of the blue, there's more internal space! I don't know what happened and how it happened, but it all seems to work now!
Thanks for this tutorial!

if you download an sdk and follow these steps does it void a warranty as you've messed with the software?

It shouldn't make a difference snowmonkey, it can easily be reversed by doing a factory reset and running the command again, but using 0 instead of 2.

Thanks bundles for the info. I belive its worked but when i now look at my "SD & phone storage" it says for the SD Card
Total Space Unavailable
Available space : Unavailable
amd
Mount Sd Card & Erase SD Card are greyed out.

Does that mean ive lost control of my SD card? I was trying to instal an android app from the card, tried navigating to it via Astro file manager and can get acess or the folder shows its empty.

Is this a result of the first post?
Is the SD card now sacrificed to an extension of internal memory?
In order to install non market apps do i avoid using the SD Card now?

If i decide to revers the process by resoring factory settings , dont i loos all my other apps , settings etc?

For Samsung Galaxy Ace (Android 2.3.3)
Download Samsung KIES to sync phone
allow USB Debugging
allow Mock Location but do not connect to PC, just in charge mode

command line in CMD

cd c:\SDKtools
cd platform-tools
abd devices
adb shell
'$' appears, type pm setInstallLocation 2
exit

If lost or if the abd file is not present explore using 'dir' select by using 'cd'

1. Connect the Phone to the PC in Charge Only mode
2. Open a command prompt (Start -> Run -> CMD, you'll need to run as Administrator)
3. Navigate to the folder you extracted ADB to. In my case, the command would be "cd\SDK-Tools" (minus the quotes).
4. Type adb devices and press enter. You should then see the serial number of your phone displayed on screen. If you don't check, that USB Debugging is enabled and you're connected in Charge Only Mode.
5. Type adb shell, press enter.
6. Type pm setInstallLocation 2 press enter (it's important you enter this exactly as written as it's case sensitive)
7. Type Exit, then disconnect your phone.
8. PROFIT!

i did all this but i want to donload a file thats 172mb but i would have to pay for it and im getting messages saying insuficiant storage space for 30mb files and i have 1.3 gb spare on my sd y doesnt it download streight to it i am on htc salsa??

try unziping it to just C:\SDK-Tools but you will have to move the files out of the folder thats created in this link so it is no longer a folder inside a folder that worked for me

You don't actually need HTC Sync, just the associated drivers so your PC can talk to your phone correctly.

Thanks for the info, I completed the instructions and like others find all my apps have the Move to SD button greyed out.

Has this been answered? I cannot find it.

I will try this because i have the same problem with low memory (HTC explorer).

But i have questions:

1. How about the warrenty?
2. If i reset factory defaults, is that save?
3. After factory reset, have to do this again?
4. After installing this is it possible to disable usb debugging?

EDIT
5. (FIXED) I have installed this and this is very very very very very nice, mannnnnnny thanks!!!
But by default it installed new apps to the phone not to the SD.
I can move it to the SD but it will not automatic to the SD.
By example the app drag racing.
Find it by myself, some apps will automatic to SD and some apps not.
6. Is it save to delete HTC sync from my phone?
7. How to get it back to default? (maybe: Type pm setInstallLocation 1 press enter (it's important you enter this exactly as written as it's case sensitive))?

EDIT
Oops wrong forum, placed now in Forcing Apps to install to the SD card without root

Gr. Kees.

Laugh Awesome!

Thank you very much for the easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. I didn't think I would need much space free on my phone when I bought it about two months ago, but then I realized there's a bunch of neat stuff to download, and I found myself quickly running out of free space. I only had one issue during the process, at first when I would type "adb devices", it wouldn't recognize my device. Then I realized that my computer was still in the process of setting up device drivers. After it was done doing it's thing, everything went smoothly.

Again, thank you! Life saver. Or should I say, phone saver. ^_^

OH, and here's a tip.
In your instructions, at the end you say to type "Exit"... When you type exit capitalized, you get an error. Might want to fix that in your instructions, I only figured it out when I looked at the images. ;P

Thank you! I had to put my Wildfire S into HTC instead before it would recognise the device, but this seems to have worked beautifully. Kudos!

Default It works!

Confirmed working on 2.3.5 A510e (Orange)

Just follow the screenshots, works a treat. Gave me an extra 20mb. Can't move stock apps but it's definitely worth doing.

Thanks El Presidente

Default Success Onscreen,but still won't Move to SD Card...

I followed all your instructions to force apps to install to sd card without root. It seemed to be successful on the screen. But now that I am finished, and unplugged my phone from my computer, none of my applications gives me the option of "move to SD card". This option is greyed out. Hmmm. How do I know if it was successful or not? Should I redo this process?

Is it just my phone that apps like Gmail, Drop box cannot be moved to sd card even if I installed them after doing this trick ?

I even had to move all the newely installed apps to sd card as they did not install on sd card.

you dont install htc sync on the phone just install it from htc website on your pc. that way all the drivers of the phone are automatically installed on the pc.

Worked on my Wildfire S after a few tries.
Needed to reopen htc sync on the pc and tell it to sync apps on my phone. Then the tuorial here post 23: Force Apps to install to SD without Root!! worked a treat

One of the biggest complaints levelled at the HTC Wildfire S is the severe lack of internal memory. There are ways around this, one of which is forcing downloaded apps to install to the SD Card. There are a couple of pre-requisites, but the process itself is relatively straight forward.

You'll need HTC Sync installed (or at least the drivers that come with HTC Sync) and ADB (Android Debug Bridge) or the Android SDK. The SDK itself is a >100MB download and can be relatively difficult to install, however if you head here, look under the section entitled Mini SDK, click show, you can download a zip file called SDK-Tools.zip. Once downloaded, extract the contents of that folder to a folder of your choosing. I recommend somewhere easy, like C:\SDK-Tools as you'll need to navigate to it via a command prompt later.

You'll also need to enable USB Debugging on your phone, that's easily enough done by heading to Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging. You'll get a warning message, but just ok that you'll be fine.

Once you've done all the above, the process is as follows:

1. Connect the Phone to the PC in Charge Only mode
2. Open a command prompt (Start -> Run -> CMD, you'll need to run as Administrator)
3. Navigate to the folder you extracted ADB to. In my case, the command would be "cd\SDK-Tools" (minus the quotes).
4. Type adb devices and press enter. You should then see the serial number of your phone displayed on screen. If you don't check, that USB Debugging is enabled and you're connected in Charge Only Mode.
5. Type adb shell, press enter.
6. Type pm setInstallLocation 2 press enter (it's important you enter this exactly as written as it's case sensitive)
7. Type Exit, then disconnect your phone.
8. PROFIT!

You can now move apps that are already on the handset to the SD Card. Head to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Click an app -> Move to SD Card. All new apps will install to the SD Card.

It's worth mentioning that apps with active widgets cannot be moved and a certain portion app will remain on the phones data partition, but this goes a long way to assist with the lack of internal memory!

Pics for the ADB stuff below:
























i followed all the steps in your post, and i believe everything went well. at the last step when i typed exit the command promt closed( hope thats what it is supposed to do)....i just have one question. does this procedure force everything to the sd card, because some apps will not transfer and some apps only a portion of the app transfers to the sd card and the remainder stays on the phones internal memory.

There will most likely always be a certain percentage retained on the internal memory. How much depends on the app, there's no standard unfortunately.
