hello i have moto e ... this is a good phone in a low budget.. but the app installing option is really pathetic... i could not install high end games on my device ... thus i found a way a way to change the default app install storage .. using adb shell ...


using these commands

adb devices
adb shell pm set-install-location 2
adb shell pm get-install-location


then it shows 2 [external]


then i tried to install whats app it installed in ext sd ..but all other apps were installig in phone internal memory..
then again i used those adb commands.. as written bellow

adb devices
adb shell pm set-install-location 0
adb shell pm get-install-location

it shows 0[auto]


but all apps are installing in internal ..except subway surfer... and the "move to sdcard" option is not working for all apps.. i mean this option is not highlighted ... or not available.. but before doing this all adb commands it was possible to move some apps on sd ... now it is not possible for any app. for example messenger app is not possible to move ... some please help ... give me a perfect solution for this issue ..... i wanna move my apps on my sd..

Yeah.. In Kitkat there is restriction to move apps to sd. To overcome that restriction follow these steps :

1) go to my thread here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...etely-t2869925 and download the app after reading instrctions.

2) install app and that's it. the settings are changed. Now install link2sd or any other app that moves apps to sdcard by native app2sd method. This works on Moto E as i had tested it.

3) Press THANKS to support me.
