    Good afternoon

    Can someone tell me if i Root & get superuser permissions, will this allow me to transfer apps to the SD card?

    Thanks in advance

    Pete ;)

    yes, Rooting your device will allow you to have more control over where apps are but your device should come native with a setting under applications where you can "move to SD" card.
    examples:
    Titanium Backup Root
    Link2SD
    so on and so forth.

    Thanks for the quick reply, i dont want to doubt you on what you said but i have read quite a few times that you cant move apps to the sd card unless you root, but you say this should be set to default, Can you point me in the right direction on the phone so i can check this.

    Only got it on sunday and havent even switched it on yet!

    Thanks

    Depends on the OS version i believe, i may be wrong, never stuck with stock for long, would you be interested in rooting your device? possibly installing a custom rom for more fun? id be glad to help.

    Thanks for the offer, i am interested in Rooting but to be honest for now i would rather stick with the stock ROM.

    i have found a couple of sites that show you how to do it, seems quite simple & straight forward but still very nervous about bricking the phone :(

    That's perfectly fine =], like i said earlier try digging through your settings, around the APP/Application area. you should be able to figure something out, if not you may have to just watch what you install :(

    Personally mate Id use this guide:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1917564

    Just remember once you root you wont be able to update your phone. You'll need to unroot it first.

    I'll be having my GN2 in the next few days and really want to root it but as you I want to keep the stock rom. All the phones Ive had in the past Ive used custom roms on but would like to keep my new GN2 stock for some time.

    Let me know how you get on :thumbup:

    Thanks, have decided to hold fire on rooting as quite like touchwiz and have got plenty of room left, do don't need to worry about getting apps to sd :)

    Can you move any apps at all to the sd card?
  18. peter7769

    peter7769 Well-Known Member

    No, you cant move any apps without it being rooted :(

    Hi, wanna ask regarding note 2, I just bought it but the storage shows only 9.64GB available... is it really shows the same with other users ?

    its phone memory..
    Thank you.

    No, I'm sure mine was about 12gb when I first got it, but got a lot of apps on it now so so it's hard to tell.
