    here what i did:

    1-downloaded the sdk
    2-unzipped the folder
    3-ran the sdk exe and only installed the usb drives
    4-put the device in debug mode and plug it via usb
    5-ran command prompt, and navigated to the sdk's tools folder
    6-typed adb devices (serial number showed up)
    7-typed adb shell pm setinstalllocation 2
    8-closed everything

    ...and heres where i failed lol:mad:...
    9-click on safetly remove hardware icon, chose android composite adb interface

    :confused: so how do i close or safetly remove the adb device?

    Try hitting adb exit first, then try removing.

    (I'm on the Inc but it's worth a shot)

    To quit adb if $q doesn't work, you can type the Ctrl-D key sequence. Then disconnect your usb as usual.
