Default Can't Move Apps to External SD Card On Rooted Reverb

I've tried three different apps, but none seem to be able to do this. App2SD gives me a message saying it is not "supported by your device, because your primary external storage is emulated from the internal storage...." Is there a way around this? it is the primary reason I rooted the phone to begin with.

I thought I read previously on these forums that others were doing this. I haven't had the need until now. I'm running Android 4.0.4

TIA

Native apps2sd is not supported on the Reverb. Try link2sd. Will allow you to link your data and other parts of the app freeing up space.

Reverb users may need to edit the "vold.fstab" file in system/etc in order to add needed "external" sdcard moving support. This file can be used to setup to use both internal and true external storage,but it is dependent upon device model. Only trial and error will produce results. Be careful editing this file and always make a backup of the original while editing in case anything goes wrong you can delete the edit and restore the original. Reboot upon editing.

You could also try using Foldermount from the Playstore, I personally didn't have any luck editing the void.stab it still complained of low memory.

You will not be able to move apps completely to external SD but linking everything should still help to avoid out of memory issues. Believe you will need to partition your external card for full functionality.
