You can find the latest version of this tutorial here. Though I will try to keep updating this thread too.

Getting Ready:
1. First you have to enable USB debugging on your Android device from Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging.
2. You need to download and install the latest Android SDK on your computer from http://developer.android.com/sdk/.
3. Install the latest java SDk if you don't already have one.

Tutorial:
1. Extract the package to the folder of your choice [Let's say- C:/android-sdk-windows/], run SDK Manager.exe

2. Close the command / windows command prompt window that opens.

3. In the new window, click on Available Packages to the left. Untick all options you are prompted to download except the USB driver option & Android sdk tools revisionx(13 as of now) & Android sdk platform-tools revision x(7 as of now) if they are there.
(Note-If you get an error message at this point, enable “Force https://…” in the Settings. From the list of available packages, select “Usb Driver package”, click on the Install Selected button in the bottom right corner and follow the prompts. )

4. Do not open Samsung Kies. Connect your phone to your computer with a USB-cable. Your OS will prompt you to install new drivers. Choose to install them from the android-sdk-windows/extras/google/usb_driver folder. Do not mount your device; you only need to plug-in the cable.
(If you don't see this prompt, It means USB drivers are already installed or else install them manually: SAMSUNG USB drivers from samfirmware.com)

5. Run command prompt in administrator.
Type in the following after the ">" at each step (without quotations,and including spaces and capital letters)

"cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools"
"adb devices"
"adb shell"
A $ sign should pop up
"pm setInstallLocation 2"
Another $ should pop up

And your done. Close everything, disconnect phone, turn off phone and then turn it back on again

Note:Now the phone will be set to install all apps you install onto the SD card. However, current apps on phone will mostly still be stored on the internal memory. This process doesn't move these apps for you, it adds the ability. So you must now manually move those already installed on the phone. Install some apps like app2sd etc.

It’s preferable to install certain apps to the main memory, since it will take a while before the SD card becomes available when you start your phone. Applications installed on the memory card will also be unavailable to the system each time you mount your phone as a disk drive.

In general, apps that integrate with the Android OS and that often run in the background is better to install on the internal storage, while games and most other applications will have no problem chilling outside on your SD.

Widgets should essentially be installed on phone memory.

Update:
From what I have come to understand (correct me if I am wrong), Each app will store some .odex files on phone memory to speed up the boot process.
So don't complain that phone memory is getting lesser after each install. Though if you could've installed 40 apps before now maybe 150+ and still have 30-40 mb left. (depends on what kind of apps you install).

Darktremor's a2sd scripts deodex the apps and COMPLETELY move the apps and cache to sd card but you will need to root and run the scripts.
How to install Darktremor's a2sd on Froyo!!
Though an easier way will be to install a custom rom.

Just thought I would log in and say thanks very much. My xperia play was constantly on low memory warning, now after following this tutorial I have been able to free up loads of memory!

After doing the tutorial, open APP2SD program and you will find that the moveable apps list is filled with loads of applications.

Thanks again

Default Force install the app to SD Card

Hi, all ...first i wuld like to thank you for giving such a wonderful post for doing such a great work.
I have done all the way and its working very well.
But now my concern is when am trying to update my phones Android OS to the latest its not happening. It will download everything to the system and start upgrading and will not move on. It will remain in 0% and my phone will display "downloading" and that also will remain same. I need to remove my battery and restart my phone to get back to the normal mode.


Please help me to upgrade my software version to the latest.

Did everything the tut says and manage to make it work. But somehow, my phone doesn't seem to connect to any wifi after that. I've checked with my other phones and they all connect to the same wifi source like a charm so this has nothing to do with the router. Anyone might knows what's causing this?

EDIT: Problem solved using the old *#*#526#*#* method.

Hi there,
I've tried follow your instructions but have come to a halt.
i cant seem to download the tools and usb drivers.
i get an error message,

"Downloading Android SDK Platform-tools, revision14
File not found:C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\temp\platform-tools_r14-windows.zip (Access is denied)
Downloading Google USB Driver, revision 6
File not found:C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\temp\usb_driver_r06-windows.zip (Access is denied)
Done. Nothing was installed."

I tried the command prompt instructions but got a message saying

"the system cannot find the path specified"

Any ideas.

thanks Graham

run your android SDK manager again but this time Run it as Administrator and then install the packages it is recommending to install once its done successfully, check which directory its installed and follow the same steps as above but the directory will very according to where android SDK is located

you have to type it EXACTLY like this. it is very picky

while in shell you must type ie, the little $ is the only thing on that line

type pm setInstallLocation 2

yea, you HAVE to capitalize the I and L

and if you see no $

type: adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2

hope this helps, i had the same problem. i looked around, and someone mentioned it elsewhere

type adb shell in the directory of platform-tools
now you are an admin


also, disregard my last comment, as i misunderstood the question.

but for those who have the "permission denied" problem,
two things, you have to be in shell (see above)
and you HAVE to type it just right, including caps

if you do it right, it should just go back to the $

to check, type
pm getInstallLocation
again you must be in shell, and it will show a number
0/system default(internal)
1/internal
2/external

and this should auto move all apps you install to your sd card, at least it does for me, but i DID have to manually move alot of them after making the change.

yada yada yada, the problem with or i have a 344349208gb sd card, and 10mb on my phone....the app will leave a significant footprint on your phone some of the time, OR its not installing to your sd card right off the bat, clear some space, enough to hold the entire app, install it. move it to the sd card, then recover your apps you got rid of or whatever.

hope this helps everyone

You can use the search in windows and type adb.exe in all files search. once you find the file listed, rightclick on the file and click "open containing folder". once the folder opens, copy the file path, paste it in the command prompt and then enter adb devices and adb shell. you are getting this error, because adb is not in the same folder which you are trying to access.

I have a Samsung Galaxy W I8150 which has 'phone memory' 'USB memory' & 'external SD.' It treats the 'USB memory' as external and installs to that even though it's built in, is there any way I can get it to install to my actual external SD card?

Thanks!

I went through those steps,i hope i don everything right, but i'm stucked.
When i'm in command prompt and i type in "cd C:\android\platform" (that's where i installed it. without the "" of course.) nothing pops out. Then I write in "adb devices" and error shows. It says :

*daemon not running, starting it now on port 5037*
ADB server didn't ACK
*failed to start daemon*
error: cannot connect to daemon

I tried everything multiple times, restarted PC, put USB out and back in, re-do all steps, tried to look for it on google, tried to turn of antivirus, Kies, Firewall, everything.

Please someone help me, I'm trying to work this for 2 days, still some kind of error i get. I'm a step away from crying.

btw. Got Samsung Ace GT-S5830i , Android version 2.3.6

Notsure Confused

when typing these:

"cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools"
"adb devices"
"adb shell"
"pm setInstallLocation 2"

into command prompt, what do I put between the lines??
Is it cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\adb devices
or cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb devices
or cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools adb devices


thanks in advance

Default Almost

Please can someone help, everything has gone correctly until I have to enter:

"adb shell"

everytime I get "error: device not found" despite the fact that:

"adb devices"

works correctly.

How can I fix this?

Default can't access "adb" when inputting in command prompt

Hi

I have just stumbled across this thread whilst looking for ways to force install apps to sd card without rooting,I get so far in the process, but then I can't get beyond the "adb" request.I keep getting an error saying doesn't recognise the prompt.I have tried every way of carrying out this process with no positive outcome.I have accessed the sdk manager, and installed "usb driver version 7", however cannot find version 5 in the remaining list, have I got the wrong "Android sdk" installer?

I really need to free up space on my internal memory, and this is starting to frustrate me,as I am following everything by the letter.....

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I have a HTC Desire

Thumbs down NOT working - reboot loop

Hello.
I would just like to warn other people like me that want to try this that the solution mentioned here damaged my phone.
I followed the directions exactly and when i opened it, it kept restarting staying at the logo screen.
I had to return it to the shop and they installed the rom again [everything was gone, i had to restore my backup].
So, if you have Samsung Galaxy Ace, think hard before trying this. That`s my opinion.

Then either get a pc or root the phone, you don't need a pc to root a device.
