Move Flash Player and Maps to SD Card
This is my first post here, and idk if its in the right place. but this is my little guide on how to install flash player + maps to sd card, i know this will help a lot of xperia play users due to the tiny amount of available memory to install apps on!
Basically, you need a rooted Xperia Play ( May work on other phones, idk?)
then download a system app removal tool - I used this one, £0.62 but its worth it - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.danesh.system.app.remover&feature=s earch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5kYW5lc2guc3 lzdGVtLmFwcC5yZW1vdmVyIl0
once installed, open the app and select the 'System Apps' tab, bottom right of the screen. then find Flash Player and Maps and uninstall them both.
once thats done, reboot your phone so it recognises that they have been uninstalled, then simply re-download them from the Google PLAY store and thy should both install straight to the SD Card.
once done Maps takes up 5.7MB internal instead of 12MB+ and Flash Player takes up 72KB, rather than 11MB+, so quite a lot of memory saved.
Hope this helps anyone struggling for extra internal space
