Unhappy System cannot find the path specified

Hi Praky, I've followed your instructions but couldn't carr on in DOS as the system couldn't find the specified file.
I had
C:\Users\MyName
and I'm the Administrator. When I put in your first command line, it couldn't find the path.
What did I do wrong?
Kies tried to start when I plugged in the phone, but I closed the window.
Can you or anybody else please help?
Many thanks

Hey Praky,

After all of the steps are suppossedly successfully completed, I get the menu. So after "pm setinstalllocation 2" I get the menu. Is this ok, or did I do something wrong? Almost all of the apps are getting installed onto the phone's main memory, such as CBS Sports, EA Sports video games, TipSubmit, and Famous Quotes apps. Also, I can see the "move to sd card" option on all of these apps, but it is still greyed out.

Thanks!

maybe it is expecting input after the menu. Try pressing 2 &enter after you get the menu.
Also try typing 'pm setinstalllocation' & hit enter. See if this also generates the menu?
Which android sdk you are on? 15?

Hey Praky,

I also thought that it was awaiting input after the menu, so I entered "2" but it reads "permission denied". Yes, I'm using version 15 of SDK. I tried it with just "pm setinstalllocation" and the menu also popped up. Could it be that I'm running Girgerbread 2.3.4 on my phone and the SDK Software is only for 2.3.3? Is there any other way to make the apps move to sd, because as of right now I can only have like 3 apps at a time on my phone.

Thanks!

Hey Praky,

I just tried it again right now. If I do:
"adb devices"
"adb shell pm setinstalllocation 2"
I get "permission denied"

If I try:
"adb devices"
"adb shell"
"pm setinstalllocation 2"
I get the meu, but I read everything very carefully this time and before the menu it reads, "Error: unknown command 'pm setinstalllocation'"

Why is this happening?
I already tried downloading the package for Android 3.0 and it didn't make a difference.

Now it's just saying that it is an unknown command and then displaying the menu like before.

Android 3.0 won't work. Give me some time. I will try to repeat the process with the new sdk.

Hey Praky,

I was typing "pm setinstalllocation 2"
The system is very picky, you have to capitalize the "I" and the "L"
"pm setInstallLocation 2"

However, the footprint that apps leave on my phone is still quite large and I just ran out of memory again. Is there a way to completely move the apps to the sd card without them leaving a footprint on the phone's internal memory?

It sounds like you looped your phone. Try doing a hard reset. If that doesn't work, then you might want to try reinstalling the firmware. What carrier are you with and what Android version are you using? I used to have a BlackBerry and if something like this happened you could just lanch the BlackBerry sync program on your computer and it had an option to reinstall the firmware and that would take care of any problems.

Hey,

I just did some research and it turns out that Android is not like the BlackBerry OS, so you actually can't reinstall the Android OS firmware. Try holding the volume up button and the power on button simultaneously; this should take you to the standard recovery mode. I'm not sure what options it gives because I don't have a Galaxy, but it should list an option to reset to factory settings; this should solve the issue.

FBapp wont go to phone mem I suppose. Try installing some other apps. The answer is in the first post itself. Try reading it again.

I've already done it successfully.

Does that mean all the apps afterwards I install would be installed automatically into the SD Card?

If I need to change it back, that is to say, I need my phone to install the apps into the phone momory automatically. Is it practicable that changing this ""pm setInstallLocation 2" into ""pm setInstallLocation 1" ""?

I followed the steps and it works like a charm! Now i have 33 mb of free memory opposed to the 23 mbs i had previously. Just one thing, can i still use Kies as usual? I mean, transfer music, pics, etc to the phone from Kies after this method?

Hi praky,

I have done this on SAMSUNG ACE and it worked just fine!!! Thanks for that....

I have one issue:
When i moved 15+ MB Application from Phone to SD, it didn't reduce the size on Phone but application got moved to SD. I have moved 10 such apps and i have only recovered around 10 MB space on phone memory, wherein i actually had to recover 40+ MB. Have you come across such issue?

I have read this post from start to finish and have a few question before i do this

Does this process actually result in new apps being installed directly to the SD card, or do they still automatically go to the internal memory, but then have the ability to be moved to SD card via the apps2sd app

Default Samsung Precedent

I have a Precedent and have had this problem. I followed your directions twice through and still can't save any apps to my sd. Everything appears to work and if I check the "get" instead of the "set" and it is on 2-external.

I cannot do any moves to the SD and cannot save directly to it. What am I missing?

Thanks for your help.

Praky,

First of all, thanks for the detailed tutorial. I've downloaded Android SDK and am in the process of downloading JDK right now. I've gone through many replies to this post and feel that I shouldn't face a problem in going through it. However, I do have a few questions on my mind before I go ahead:

1. What are the chances of data damage (messages and contacts) in this process?
2. I tried using Samsung Kies to backup messages and contacts, but it gives an error. Any idea what could be wrong here?
3. What's the concept behind rooting the phone? And how do I go about installing a custom ROM (if you think that's better than rooting)

I'd appreciate if you could give specific answers to my queries. I'm ex-tech support myself so I think I'll be able to grasp most of the technical jargon.

Thanks in advance,

Arrow

Okay, I did it, worked out smoothly. However, App2SD still shows the following apps under Phone Only (can not be moved to SD):

Maps, Market, Dictionary, Gmail, Youtube, Google Search, Street View and Android Apps

Any suggestions??

Hello Guys,

Praky and other experts, thanks for the support. Appreciate it.

Ive followed all the steps mentioned in the first post and successfully implemented it.

However I need a quick clarification please,
I have a Galaxy R. Will I be able to install my appl on the EXTERNAL SD? Currently any game that I install is being installed into the INTERNAL SD. Even after using Apps2SD to move the file to SD card, when the games download thro' WiFi it gets downloaded and installed into the INTERNAL SD. Is there any way I can set it to download it into the EXTERNAL SD without rooting my phone?

Thanks in advance. Cheers!

it opens another window with "Android SDK...." selection and a "Google USB..." selection so i select both and click install

nevermind problem solved. i ran it as administrator and went through the rest steps smoothly. thanks a lot my ace works perfectly
p.s. its weird how a company like samsung&google let this bug trouble so many ppl and let them take the risk to fix it their selves

after that I did not type anything but instead pressed tab until I saw android-sdk-windows(the folder where i installed drivers)
selec the folder which appears and enter
once u r intot hat sub folder press tab again until you find the sub folder's name appearing..
In this way you dont make any mistakes in writing the directory path
once you you reach the desired location, then start typing commands..

Hope it helps
thank you for posting this thread , i have been struggling all day to command my laptop until i stumbled across this thread then it only took me 10 mins.
