Tutorial ANDROID APPS directly saved in your SD Card

Discussion in 'Android Phones' started by boyboy, Nov 16, 2013.

  1. Most android apps downloaded in google playstore is directly saved and installed to your internal storage of your tablet knowing that the internal storage allotted for such is too small.
    Now with some tweaks we can now enjoy downloading apps from Playstore directly saving it to your SD card then move them to your external SDcard
    HOW?
    simply by the use of an android application
    Requirement:
    1. Android tablet
    2. Android SDK Please or Register to view links
    3. PC

    download application to pc and install
    [​IMG]

    run application and open sdk manager

    [​IMG]
    tick box for android sdk platform-tools, scroll to extras folder open and check google usb drivers
    [​IMG]

    open the folder where you have installed android sdk (For the purpose of this tutorial mine is drive E:\ANDROID SDK but for the default its C:\Program Files (X86)Android\android-sdk.)
    [​IMG]
    open a command window (hold or press shift then right click mouse)
    [​IMG]

    connect now your android tablet (just mount the usb cable, do not turn on USB storage just connect usb cable to pc), make sure you have checked the USB debugging of your tablet.
    [​IMG]

    now type in "adb devices" and press enter from command window to check devices
    [​IMG]

    now lets check the default storage set by your device:
    type: : "adb shell pm get-install-location" press enter

    [​IMG]

    now change the default zero to 2 (external) and your done.

  2. ok lng po baito kahit not rooted?
     
  3. yes no root required as long as you can connect your usb to your pc.
     
  4. Nice to ah... sir may steps k pang root tablet?
     
  5. boss pa try nga po nito...
     
  6. only ainol novo7 advanced 2, different tablets kasi iba iba din ang proces sa pagroot. best download nyo po root checker to check since ibang tablet ay meron ng root access.
     
  7. Cm fubo gamit ko, sa site n pinag downloadan ko minsan ainol ang detection ng unit ko.. anyway question sir??
    What will happend if tangalin ko yong memory card(external/micro sd). In the event na mag papalit ako.. or im thinking sa tablet internal memory ko na lng save..
    Set to 1 pwd ba? Imbis na set to 2??
     
  8. basta save only sa internal ung applications na you usually need upon opening your tablet like wallpapers,live wall papers, launcher apps, etc. since once connected na sa computer mga applications na nasaved sa sd card(external micro sd) hindi gagana once you set to usb storage pag may itratransfer kang files from your computer to external sd cards. also upon turning on palang sa tablet minsan mapapansin mo may notification na sd card is mounted or running palang sa background ung pag read sa external sd card at mga applications na andun pag clinick mo ung apps minsan sasabihin "apps not installed" since nasa external ito at may waiting period na aantayin para lumabas ung notification na sd card mounted para maopen mga apps.

    wala namang kaso pag wala ung external sd card during iseset sa 1 since partition lang naman ito ng default internal storage ng tablet.

  9. ***also since CM Fubo gamit mo e pre rooted lang yan meaning not fully rooted. just d0wnl0ad and install superuser tapos open mo preference and update mo ung su binary ng superuser, and fully access mo na mga d0wnl0aded apps
     
  10. no need for rooting?bka pareho lng to sa "App2Sd" nlilipat lng ung ibng files pero di lahat nasa SD.at di na ba kailangan e partition ung SD? pls reply.
     
  11. ayos yan dude kso
    di working sken
     
  12. "App2Sd" is app or a
    "App2Sd" is app or application installed to phone or tablets to manage installed apps while this method is via pc which will change the default location of installation of apps , you have the option to partition your sdcard via minitool partition or via rom manager, cwm, etc. but still there are applications that need to remain in the system (internal) that will be needed during the startup of phone or tablets like launchers.apk, systemui.apk, framework-res. apk etc.
