Android 2.2: Install all apps to SD (even the unsupported apps)

Because a lot of android phones have a really small disk (NAND) you must move all the apps manually to SD. You can automate this with an tool on the marked (easy way).

  1. Search for modinstalllocation in the marked
  2. download and install this.
  3. Start the tool and set the value on 2 external

The hard way:

  1. Connect the phone using the android SDK. (If you don’t know how, you can use my tutorial
  2. Now start cmd
  3. change folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
  4. Now run the following command:

adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2

Note: For both options you’re phone don’t have to be rooted  😉
