    I finally got root on my lucid 2. I thought it would allow me to finally be able to send apps to sd, but still no option for this. Is there anyway possible to move these apps???

    This is what the app manager says

    What is the need to move apps to the sd card? You've already got a decent amount of internal storage.

    On that note, your internal shows as an sd card if you haven't noticed. It might not recognize it as internal

    If the Lucid 2 works like the Lucid then the internal storage is already mounted as /sdcard/ so basically it is telling you that it won't copy to the SD card [internal storage].

    I know this is old, but maybe some will benefit. Yeah, the Lucid 2 has a large internal "SD," but still, its always good to keep internal storage open for web downloads and stuff. I, personally, use Link2SD. You partition your SD card in CWM with at least 1-2Gb and then when you open Link2SD after booting, follow the directions. After its set up, I go to User Apps and then select all and then Create Link. After that, go into the settings and set it to automatically link new apps. BAM! Good to go. Hope this helps :)

    I keep getting messages that my internal storage is low. I move as much as I can to SD(0) or Dropbox and still get warnings, after a bit. Dows this sound reasonable?

    I like the sound of this answer. Depending on some more information. Do you store your apps somewhere other than the internal, and set the link to that location? Otherwise I do not see a benefit here.

    I use an app called DirectoryBind. Root is required.
    It lets you move whatever you want to physical SD card. No need for partitioning and no need for CWM (is there even a working CWM for Lucid 2?).
    The hardest part is getting the settings to survive a reboot, but once it does, you're golden. I found I had to enable the alternate database mgmt to get settings to stick.

    Going along with solutions to this problem I used the app External 2 internal ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.codlab.int2ext )
    Make sure the internal mount point is /storage/sdcard0 and external mount point is /storage/sdcard1 then the external device access is /dev/block/vold/179:33
    Then you just push the button and it should remount the internal as external and vice versa.

    EDIT: Actually that didn't solve the problem because it is still detected as emulated storage.. But still useful for apps to save data to. I used it to trick Grand Theft Auto 3 to install.
