Hi,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. (Android OS, v4.0.4)

I am trying to move the apps installed to SD but its not happening there is no such option i tried the well known apps on play store for this task but they also don't have any such feature when installed on my phone. One of them even has it posted on its app description as given below:

Galaxy S3 is not supported:
* Galaxy S3 configures the SD card as a secondary external storage. This is configured by Samsung. Nothing developers can do about this. Please contact Samsung for details.
Not supported devices:
* Galaxy S3, Note 2, Galaxy Nexus, Tablets
* read FAQ 10 for details: App 2 SD > MENU > Settings > About > FAQ


I have also tried the adb shell pm set-install-location 2 command in the proper way.(The same command worked for my HTC Desire S and HTC Wildfire S).:confused:
So, Guys is there a way to move apps to the SD card, WITHOUT ROOTING. Just give me any information you might have about this. I am
assuming this i a problem with the Samsung Android OS.

Since its gonna be my everyday usage phone, i don't feel like playing around or changing the stock OS.:cyclops:
Minor tweaks are alright.

Thanks Guys.:cowboy:

Yes I have the same issue and would like to know if that is possible.

I know there is a fix for the SIII but you need root and I do not know if there is a rooting solution for this phone already.
Please let us know if there is root and/or non-root solution available...

Thank you very much!

Hi,

I install my apps in normal way. Afterwards I open the standard filemanager, go to the app directory and use the menue button. Then choose "move" and transfer the app directory to the extSdcard and fill in. Now use the app and have fun. Most of my apps operate from the extSdcard without any problem.

Guys i called up Samsung the person at the call center tried to argue with me and give me all the procedures and information like i was a noob (the same things we all have tried or read on the net.) It seems they also don't know that they have a problem !! So, I got angry so he said he'll arrange a call from "TECHNICAL EXECUTIVE REPRESENTATIVE" ( the names they think for position to make them sound important :))

And when i got from this above mentioned person she tried to give me the same answer but when i further protested she accepted that this is a limitation of the OS customizations by Samsung.

So, Guys only solution to this problem -- Use a Custom ROM..(CM or some other i don't know)
Please post the name and version, if some one is happy with the Custom ROM they might be using on this phone. (like if it has all the features running)

Isn't there anyway to swap sdcard by extSdCard?

/dev/fuse gets mounted on /sdcard - internatl storage

I've tried with a script on init.d to umount /sdcard and then mount mount my external sdcard on /sdcard, but doesn't work, it mounts /dev/fuse again on /sdcard :(

I think i got it, now my sdcard partition (/dev/block/mmcblk1p1) apears mounted on /mnt/sdcard along with /dev/fuse wich is kind of weird, but is working:
