[Q] how to store music on external SD (google music, amazon store)
ok peeps, I'll try to make it short and to the point.
Mods, I've tried searching the forums, I can't seem to find an answer, if one's available, my apologies for duplicating a thread, and if you could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.
so, I've got a Galaxy S4, Tmobile, 16gb, stock 4.3 rom (per latest OTA update) and it's rooted.
I used to have a mytouch 4g and I found a thread here on how to create links via ROM Toolbox to fool the google music store into downloading my purchases to the external card instead of internal memory. Mind you, I had CM loaded on the mytouch, but I thought just rooting the Galaxy would allow me to do the same.
In short, I can't. it took me a while to find the directory where the Galaxy stores the downloaded files from google music play store (WTF with the names google), but I can't create the link so that future downloads go straight to external SD (I've got a 64gb one on the phone)
I know I can manually move the files, either on the phone or connecting the phone to my laptop and moving the files that way, but that's not the point. I should be able to specify where to download my music, after all I'm paying for it for chrissakes...
the amazon store is much more flexible, it does allow me to specify a different folder, but it won't reach up to the main directory to choose external SD, only the retarded virtual storage folders...
any help will be much appreciated!! thanks everyone.
