Somebody plz let me know any workaround for moving apps to Internal USB storage. Under settings>application manager> there is an option to move apps to external sd card only. Is it possible to install/move apps to internal usb storage (around 11.5 GB). Please help.

Phone - Galaxy s2 (At&t sgh i777)
ROM - Shostock3 rom (android 4.1.2)

I can only think of using a usb cable and manually storing in Internal SD Card.

Is it possible to partition the internal usb storage so as to use it as an external sd card ? Or can we change the default installation location of apps to Internal usb storage.

Please note that I am not using an external sd card. So i would like to move/install apps to internal usb storage. I have also read that many android phones have this option "Move to usb storage" under application manager.

Try taking out the data from the sd card, removing the sd card from the phone, and moving that data to the Internal SD Card. I don't think Shostock3 has that option.

I have all my apps and data installed in internal storage (i.e. 2 GB storage). But unable to move them to usb storage. I haven't mounted any external sd card. The storage is as follows :
Internal storage - 2 gb which is almost full because of apps
USB storage - 11 GB of which 9 GB
is occupied with audio, video and other files.
I seek to use this free space of usb storage for installing apps.

None of the apps allow moving of apps to usb storage. They could only move them to external sdcard.

I found the solution for you. Try going into applications, click the app you wanna move, and click Move to SD Card. If it moves to the external card, remove that then try. It works for me.

Without external sd card mounted, when i click move to sd card; it says "not enough storage space". But with external sd card mounted, I am able to move apps only to external sd card and not usb storage.

That's imo going to be your best bet. Just manually move your apps to your usb storage through your pc.

Also, if you have ES file explorer, have you tried to use it to move your files to the usb storage?
