Hello all.

I have a question. Is possible to change regular app into private app? I'm using S2E to move apps to sd-ext. I want to move some apps to sd-ext but some i want to stay on internal. There is option to move Applications or Private Apps. I want to move games and less important apps to sd-ext. That could be moved as private apps. But i don't know if it is possible to change games into private app. I dont want to move important apps like Luncher, sms or system apps to sd-ext.

Some1 can help?

Hello Wojtys!

I believe that you can move almost everything from your internal memory to the sd-ext with the tool your using (me too )

If you want to move to your sd-ext partition, start S2E and touch "Menu" button; go to settings, enable "Advanced Mode" and restart. You will be able to move the rest of your aplications.

Also, in settings, applications, manage applications, you can choose if you want to move each app to "SD" or "Phone".

I hope I could help you!

Have a great day

Thank you for interesting. I know that but i dont want to move all apps. I want to move only several like games. In S2E is not optiont to move exact app only Applications or Private app. So i thought i could change games into private apps and move all of them buy check that option. I want to stay more important app like luncher, Titanum, system apps on internal and move only less important like a games. Dont want to move on sd only sd-ext. Have small capacity sd cuz only 2GB for now.

Look for Link2SD and use this instead of S2E.
It works similar to S2E but you can control what to move to sd-ext partition.

I was using S2E and lost all my apps during an upgrade. Restore through CWM would not get them back either.
I've tried the same with Link2SD and managed to restore my apps back after installing Link2SD first and then restoring the CWM bakcup.

According to this article: http://strazzere.com/blog/?tag=app-private - protected apps live there and protection only seems install destination. I'm pretty sure this is old (article from 2009). What is your problem with moving, are you sure you mounted as RW properly and changed permissions correctly?
