Default How to move entire apps to SD card.

Hi all!

I would like to move huge apps to my SD card now that I am rooted. (Forget the class number but it's high and it's a 16gb model)

I followed this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...00&postcount=1

I downloaded the app off of the play store. When I go to any APP2SD app it still says my device is not supported. How do I go about doing this?

But you have to be rooted first for it to work. You're welcome. 😅😆

I know I said I installed that!!!!
What do I do after that? The APP2SD apps still won't move my apps to my sd card.

Had to remove your link to google play it wouldn't let me post it lol.

If by huge apps you mean games that have obb files, try foldermount..works for me.

so I used this app and when I rebooted the Galaxy S5 boot screen showed the lock icon (unlocked) with "Custom" written underneath it. don't suppose that's anything to be concerned about?

Only if you plan to return your device. That let's Verizon know your rooted.

I tried using the app to mount the AC4 game/map browser. I'm not sure what it did but it didn't take it off internal storage.

I'm still looking for a way. For example the ACiV app only moves about 40 of the 200 mb. Those root app 2 sd cards don't seem to work.
