For those that are wanting more storage on your rooted Samsung Galaxy S4, (running SlimKat) there is no need to download an app or run a certain program through Terminal Emulator or any other program. The easiest way to accomplish this is simple. Just unroot your device, install your apps onto an external SD Card, unmount your SD Card, reroot your S4, install whatever ROM you want & THEN, & ONLY THEN DO YOU remount your SD Card & VOILA, you will have all your apps on your SD Card. Now, I understand that with some ROM's you can move apps to the SD Card, but with every ROM that I've flashed, you can't move them, so I had to find out a way to create more space & this was by far the easiest.

Why would you need to root or unroot to tap "Move to SD card" in the App info?

That option was not available for me while using the SlimKat ROM.
