Tablet How to install apps in external SD Card

Hi All,

I've two tablets and the internal free space in getting lower, I need to install apps directly on their external sd cards. How is it possible? All the "2SD" apps don't work.

Thank you all in advance

You can't unless you root the tablet and use non standard software.

Really...... I was under the impression that it could not be done at all.

Please tell how as I would like to know also.



Thanks.

didnt figure this out but u can use titanium and move those on the device to leave more space for other installations.
Hitting the thanks Button should be the least thing u can do when someone helps u.So do it what are u waiting for?

If you are rooted and on a stock ROM or ROM not using JB 4.2 (Google changed the file structure again in JB 4.2), you may be abe to use zedomax's script that swaps the internal and external SD cards. Although it's long, I would suggest reading through the entire thread as glitches with the stock ROM update to JB 4.1.2 and work arounds are addressed later in the thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1857391&page=1

I'm interested in this as well. I read a post on something called a directory bind...??? I guess that moves app data to the SD card. I currently have just over 9 gig of space left to fill (16gig model). Just put in a class 10 32gb card in last night to find out that app2sd does not work...

I read today that link2sd might work. Haven't gotten a chance to try it yet though.

I tried link2sd and the other one mentioned in this thread with no luck.

I don't really want to do the the card swap method.

So........... if anyone has another way to store apps on a mico sdhc card that truly works, I'm in.

Default Found app that truly works

I finally found an app that truly transfers your app data to your "extSdCard" but you do need to have root.

The app is called "Directoryblind" and can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410262 and the most current file is DirectoryBind_0.2.0o.apk

The app has been out since 12-2011 with many updates since its release.

So I'm posting it on this Note 10.1 section as I have never seen it talked about in this section and I thought it may help someone else find this app.

Again it truly does work.
