Hello.

I think, this app is useful for app2sd user. [It's based on Open Manger. just modified the apps for rooting user]
Move a App to SD. and make a symbolic link only "APK files".


1. requirement.
A. Rooted device.
B. App2SD
C. Busybox

2. Usage.
A. After rooting , install a app2sd.. [do not move a apps to SD. just install]
B. select a app , which is big size, sometime using, but do not want remove.
C. move a only APK to SD card. and make a symbolic link by this apps.

3. if you want more detail. visit to here " flywithu.com/entry/rootedexplorer "



the file status is "lrwx" then, "l" menas "symbolic link" , "r" => "read able". "w" => "write able", "x" => "execute able"

I don't know why, but I can open all folders I want except /mnt/sdcard. I get a FC when trying. On filemanagers I can open /mnt/sdcard with success.

Using a HTC Desire, rooted and S-off.

Installed and works for me, but it shows my /data/app/ folder as empty.
I have apps2sdext so it should follow the link...
As a workaround I can browse to /sd-ext/app just fine.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but I'm having a problem moving apps to my SD card. I go into rooted explorer and copy the .apk, I move into the /system folder but there is no SD folder. Everything else looks the same as the screen shot except I'm missing the SD folder. Any ideas?
