    How to Move Apps to SD - GetYourDroidOn

    How to Move Apps to SD From GetYourDroidOn

    Moving Your Apps to SD card....
    First you need to have 2 partitions on your SD card to do this.... A EXT2 or EXT3 partition for your apps and a FAT32 for everything else...I recommend 100 - 500 megs for your EXT2/EXT3 partition for your apps and to have a class(4) or better SD card... To create the partitions for Windows I recommend using Paragon and for Linux/Ubuntu use Gparted... Once you have your partitions created and formated put the SD card back in the phone if it isn't already and connect it to your computer... You will need ADB on your computer and the debugging tool on your phone turned on...

    1) Check to make sure your phone is recognised by the computer...
    (win) type from cmd adb devices
    (linux) type from terminal ./adb devices

    2) Mount the phone
    (win) type from cmd adb remount
    (linux) type from terminal ./adb remount

    3) Start ADB Shell
    (win) type from cmd adb shell
    (linux) type from terminal ./adb shell


    Once you are in ADB shell do the following...

    4) Move your files from the phone to EXT2/EXT3 part of the SD card
    cp -a /data/app /system/sd

    5) Move your paid/private files from the phone to EXT2/EXT3 part of the SD card
    cp -a /data/app-private /system/sd

    6) Remove old app folder from the phone
    rm -r /data/app

    7) Remove old paid/private app folder from the phone
    rm -r /data/app-private

    8) Now link the app folder from EXT2/EXT3 partition
    ln -s /system/sd/app /data/app

    9) Now link the paid/private app folder from EXT2/EXT3 partition
    ln -s /system/sd/app-private /data/app-private

    10) Now STILL FROM ADB SHELL type
    reboot

    Once your phone finishes booting your apps will have all been moved to your SD...

    I have the JF1.5 build root. When I did the "REBOOT" step, the phone rebooted but got stuck on the "ANDROID" screen. Everything went fine untill the reboot.

    I have tried to reboot with the "home" & "power" method, pull battery and start normal method, pull battery and "home" & "power" method.

    All ways get stuck on the "ANDROID" screen.

    Please help. I need my phone.

    Thank you.

    Finally got it this morning.

    Had to do several HOME POWER reboots and wipes.

    When it finally worked had to reflash JF and now all works fine.

    I got all I wanted and will not be messing with it for a while.
