Drive Install apps on SD Card on Note 8.0 *root

Hi Guys

I noticed another thread here on how to use your external SD card for apps only me being a noob it was far too complicated. I managed to find this video tho and tried it on my device and it works perfectly. You need a rooted device with Busybox and Script Manager to do this and then you will need to download this script and use Script manager to run this script at startup which basically swaps the internal and SD memory around so your device thinks your SD card is SDcard0. Video explains everything quite nicely.

There are other options out there that work too such as an app called Directory Bind, but this is way easier and much more reliable. With directory bind i was having huge problems trying to access the SD card or internal memory when plugged into my PC. Hope this helps.

No. Just remove the script & reboot, or pull the SD Card & reboot.

Question. What size SD card are you guys using?


Can I add a 64gb SD card, on top of the 16gb internal?
so then I would have like 80 gigs total?

I used a 64 GB micro sd card. That became my internal storage (Sdcard0) while the original internal storage now shows up as (extSdcard) ( Which is approx 10GB ) so you can use it all but it will be 2 separate storage areas.

Just look at the OP's post, he has a pic of how your storage will be showing up.

I'm using FolderMount from Google Play to move specific folders to the SD card, seems to be working well.

The internal SD is probably much faster than the external, so I'd rather not do a full swap.
