    Hi,
    My phone is Samsung Galaxy Y S5360. Its internal memory is only 190 MB. So, installing new apps (especially a little heavy ones) is very difficult. Also, installing new apps slows down performance (RAM = 290MB).
    Is there a way to install new apps only on the sd card & nothing on phone memory?
    I have already made SD Card as default storage but some part of new apps gets installed in phone memory too (Package = code + data), can't this be changed & only SD card memory used?
    Is there a way to improve RAM performance?


    Or do I have to go for a new phone?

    Regards,
    Chaitanya

    I have done the following:

    1. Rooted the phone with update.zip.

    2. Have downloaded Link2SD app & given it superuser permissions.

    I tried moving default Maps app but it showed the following error:

    "pkg: /data/app/com.google.android.apps.maps-1.apk Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INVALID_INSTALL_LOCATION]"

    I want to move this, as well as other heavy system apps like Play Store to my Samsung 8GB SD Card.

    Please , help .
