    Hi all

    I have a samsung galaxy s advance 8 gb and I was wondering why there is only 2 gb available for apps? How can I increase this? I have installed all my apps on my sdcard to save up some space, but jelly bean is rolling out atm for the sgs advance and if Im correct it wont be possible anymore to install apps on the sdcard?


    Thnx

    That's a Gingerbread limitation. WHen you get JB, you'll have the entire onboard storage as one drive where you can save apps (the whole 7.something GB of storage you have). Also, currently, when you are "moving apps" to the SD card, they're not moving to the external card, they are still on the phone's internal storage. Its a quirk with Gingerbread Samsungs.

    Well then I hope that jelly bean will be released as soon as possible in Europe. Russia has it already for 3 weeks.

    Yeah sounds like an issue. Are you using the Apps to SD application?

    No, I did them all manually. Its a habbit when I install an app to move it to sd card.
