Look for platform-tools. If even that is missing, you'll have to reinstall the sdk.
Nope, the folder is on D:\android-sdk-windows\tools and that's where I am in the cmd.
Correct --- Platform-tools contains adb
and as referred from Post #1
I found that All went right, however the Button [[[Move To SD]]]
is still grey.
What is possible problem
Well then, use a Windows search on the main folder to locate adb.exe.
I also want to know about
DATA2SD with Unlimited Internal Memory on Desire!
What is difference between the DATA2SD and the procedure given in this post.
Not apps may be moved. This method is not a patch. It just activates the froyo a2sd option. It is still upto the individual app to declare at setup time, whether it may be moved or not.
the adb was itn the "Platform-tool" folder. ran it, got the "server is out of date" error.
I've unplugged the phone, killed the HTC sync on the PC, plugged the phone in and ran Sync mode (on the phone only).
Typed "adb devices" and "adb shell" into the cmd, and got a $.
So I went on to put in "pm setInstallLocation 2" which was followed by a many lines of text ending with the $
I've tried moving Skype to the memory card and it worked.
Thank you very much
Lol. There are only differences..
A2sd is the froyo implementation. It still keeps dalvikcache of each app, and allows apps to declare whether they want to install on SD.
A2sd+ is a kind of hack for custom roms. It lies about location of internal, and actually moves apps to SD via a smart script. Still internal is limited by the actual memory desire comes with.
Data2sd and data2ext are the smartest. It just dictates to the OS. "hey, we no longer want you deciding where our apps should go. I need all my data partition to be shifted from the meagre couple of hundred mbs u call internal memory, and want part of my SD to store my data. All of them.".
That is putting it simply. The real deal is that data2sd creates an additional partition and changes the location of the /data mount point to that.
Oh! then instead of doing all this one should Install APP2SD from Android Market.
Thats what I use and most of my apps are moved apps to SD.
Though I wanted to move some Biggies like Google Maps, Facebook app GMail App etc To make more space in Desire.
Also as soon as I get my 32 gig card this is first thing I am gonna do
DATA2SD, Ya thats right.
There is nothing wrong with Desire, But now The low Memory problem is only thing that makes me feel bad. Now a days I am unable to browse market also because of low Mem Feeling.
You need a min class 4 card to run things smoothly with data2sd. The faster the card the better. Get a class 6 or 10 of u want performance too.
Can you point me in the direction of one of these 6 or 10 class sd cards? I've searched and can only find a 4 class.
By the way, if you're asking for 32gb, tough..
Nah...16gb is plenty. Thanks a lot.
Basically with data2sd, if you have a class 4 you need sync off, which massively increases the risk of data loss. With sync on, your phone will lag. But Sync off gives hugely exaggerated Quadrant scores. I was getting max 2506.
Now I have a Class 10 card, so I can secure my data with sync on. My quadrant scores are now down to earth and because the class 10 card is faster than NAND (internal memory) its still quicker than it was before data2sd, without being fake.
I get max 2059 on quarant now. Of course I'm overclocked to 1190Mhz on a an AOSP rom to get that
I keep just getting that same message
"The syntax of the command is incorrect
I have done every step and typed it in correctly
Can you copy / paste the text from your CMD window in Code tags please?
Noobs guide remember
What did you want haha?
i have all the newest updates
have things changed?
if you could write a new process that i can follow. that would be excellent.
Basically I want to know what you typed in the black window to get that error.
Copy and paste is best.
in the black window, right click and select "Mark" Select all the text from top left to bottom right.
Right click on the bar at the top, select edit>copy
Then post it here like this
C:\>blah blah blah#
'blah' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
I have encountered an error that says "Error: unknown command 'setInstallLocation'
I think this method no longer works
On Android 2.2 / FROYO?
Come on Guys, the minimum you can do to let us help you is to post a copy-paste of a dos window! Right click the window, choose mark. then drag the mouse all over place, and then click the icon of the window, and choose copy, and then paste it here. Then select it once more and choose the # sign.
We cant help unless we know exactly what you've typed incorrectly.
Can someone explain what if anything this does that cannot be done by going to
Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Select app > Move to SD Card?
That is the manual method of moving each app after it is installed. The thread describes the method to set a toggle so as to make the system install apps in card in the first place.
By the way, the same functionality is provided by some market apps. Search "APP2SD"
can HTC wildfire do it too? it is using Eclair
