Sad How to move apps to SD Card

Hello all...
I am a newbie to this forum and Android OS as well..!! I am very happy to use an Android (v2.1 update 1) based mobile (Sony Ericsson W8). No sooner my happiness got drooped by coming to know that I could not store my Apps and games in SD card (which I previously could do that in my Nokia mobile). I googled about that and heard about Apps2SD software, but later I came to know that it works on Android v2.2 and up..!!

All I want to know that, how to move my installed apps or games to my SD card. Also, meanwhile I come by the word "rooting" in Android mobiles... what's that..? Can anyone please answer my question..?

Thanks in advance...

Welcome to the forums!

You are quite correct - apps to SD is a feature available from Froyo (Android 2.2) and up. In order to be able to do that, your phone would have to be running at least that firmware.

In answer to your other question... to try and help you understand - what is rooting or does being rooted mean

I hope that helps a little. If you have any questions, either post in here or feel free to ndrop me a PM!

Hi nikobellic. first of all, Apps2sd is for Android 2.2 and higher. stock W8 is only up to 2.1 (eclair). you can still use Apps2sd but you have to modify/upgrade your ROM. If your a newbie in android, I don't suggest you modify your ROM, you might brick your W8. However, you can still transfer your apps and games to your sd card by using link2sd application. but you still have to root your w8 in order to install and use link2sd.

Rooting is simply accessing the operating system of your unit.

how to root your w8?
1. you must have microsoft.net framework v2.0 or higher on your pc. if you don't have, you can download it from microsoft download center. it's free.
2. download superoneclick. i used superoneclick v2.1.1. you can download it at 4shared.com
3. before you root your w8, i suggest you first update it to refresh your OS. use sonyericsson pc companion. it's easy, just follow the instructions.
4. if you have already done item 1 to 3, you can now root your w8.
5. enable USB debugging. Settings-Applications-Development-USB debugging (check it)
6. connect your w8. wait until your hardware is installed and ready to use.
7. Open superoneclick.
8. Click root.
9. Accept install busybox.
10. Donate? you have the option to donate or not.
11. Wait until it says you phone is now rooted.
12. Reboot your phone.
13. You must see the superuser icon on you phone after reboot.

Hi to all,

I'm just new to this phone (SE XPERIA X8 v2.1).

I would like to inquire, if I have "LINK2SD" app & my phone is already rooted, Can I transfer files or applications from my phone memory to SD card?

Thanks,
