    Hi all

    Over the last couple of days I have noticed that some apps have started going straight to SD? I have not followed the procedure favoured on here for forcing apps to SD (yet) So why are they doing it? Its not a problem as I was going to move them anyway.

    Cheers

    Yes, I assume the apps in particular are coded that way.

    Be useful to know what apps they were.

    App devs can choose whether to move apps to the sd card automatically, make it an option if the user decides to move it, or not allow it to be moved(which is the default).

    pm setInstallLocation 1 in adb shell, that'll force installs to internal, 0 is automatic (app decides on its own depending on dev) and 2 is SDcard. Type pm getInstallLocation to see what it's set at.

    Sorry mate. I dont really understand this message. If whatever setting is on,it must have always been on as I have changed nothing. Just started doing it??

    Maybe its because I have less than 10% internal memory left?
