Okay well I tried looking through a few threads on how to do this, as well as a couple articles I found on google, and I can't necessarily figure out how to get this working. So what I want is for my apps I download from now on to install to my new SD card I just bought for my phone. I installed Java, and the Android SDK.. Ran the command prompt, tried the whole adb shell pm set-install-location 2.. no errors came back, command went through find.. but when I install apps, they dont show up in the sd card. When I view the info for the app, it shows it installed to USB Storage app(See pic below) .. so im wondering what USB storage app is.. and how do I get this to work?

FYI, its just a random app I installed to see if it worked.

On my Huawei Tablet with stock ICS 4.0.3, the part of the app installed to sd card also showed as "usb". And that was the Android revision where app2sd worked best, with 4.0.4 it was gone completely, like L9's v10.
