    Hi Android Forums,

    I am new on here, and posted this question weeks ago on XDA but never heard back. I have the 32GB model of the Samsung 10.1 2014 Note Model #SM-P6000ZKVXAR. I rooted the tablet about a week after I purchased it by flashing one of the ROMs provided by a senior member of the XDA Developers forum, which I have greatly enjoyed. I recently purchased a 64GB Team MicroSDXC card from Newegg because I ran out of room with the internal storage. I was reading on an android blog about changing the default location that apps are installed from the Google Play store from the device's internal storage to the MicroSDXC card. I followed the tutorial (which I can't link to since I am a new member) and the output I got on command prompt said: Error: unknown command 'setInstallLocation' . Below I will provide the command prompt script and output. Thanks in advance for any help with this. I would definitely appreciate being able to directly install to the MicroSDXC card. Here is the script:

    it's set-install-location

    You need the hyphens and all lowercase.

    Hi Rukbat,

    I tried your suggestion and it still has not worked. I do not get the error message from the command prompt, but when I attempt to download apps with the location set as external storage (location 2), I now get a message saying that there is insufficient space in the external location. Please let me know if you have any ideas how I might resolve this, and thank you for your first suggestion.

    I also bought 64 gb sdcard but it is practically useless as I cannot transfer most apps.
    is there any way one can transfer apps to sdcard
    If there is it would be a great success and very profitable for samsung and the sdcard providers.
