    Default All apps to External SD... How to?

    Remember when you could open titanium backup pro and move ALL apps to SD card with 1 click?

    You could have 0 apps on internal storage if you so pleased.

    Unfortunately we have lost this capability.

    Does anyone know a fix?
    Not just a "gameloft" fix....

    A MOVE ALL APPS TO EXTERNAL STORAGE FIX.

    Let me know! Thanks peeps

    You will need to be rooted, there is an app in the market that will swap your internal and external sdcard.

    Why would you want all apps on the sdcard? Widgets won't work if they're on the external sdcard.

    this method will keep widgets working because it makes the system see the external as internal and vice versa i believe.

    So I tried the GL to root method. It actually worked pretty nice. It moved all my games and data to the external sd card.

    But wait... its useless. ..

    Since it moved, the game no longer sees its data package so it reinstalls it again in the phones memory. Full circle....

    Assuming that you're rooted, I just use Zedomax's script. Basically, you run the script, and it swaps your internal memory with your external micro sd card. I'm using it on my 64GB sandisk card. It works with any Touchwiz rom with stock kernel. It's not difficult at all. Just download the script, go to the Play store, download an app called script manager, and follow his (Zedomax) instructions.

    This is the reason why they shouldn't even sell 16 gb phones anymore. Ever since jellybean we can't move apps to the SD card anymore, and with all the bloatware manufacturers are putting on these phones, users have barely any room left. Samsungs excuse that the external card will solve all these memory issues for every user are just wrong. It's great for people that don't play games on their phones since those are the apps that take up the most space. In my case, I can only keep a few games at a time and I have to reinstall the others after I get rid of the ones I am tired off. 16 gb is just too small and I really hope that the note 3 comes with 32 gb as the minimum size. Sorry if I strayed off the main topic here, but it Sucks that you have to root your phone and be an advanced user just to move apps to the SD card.

    I'v been trying to find out a way to move Apps to SD card on my Note 2 WITHOUT ROOTING MY PHONE

    later on I found out about a way useing ADB (Andriod Debugging Bridge) which has an option that sets/changes the default install location.

    command line: adb shell pm set-install-location 2

    0 [auto]: Let system decide the best location
    1 [internal]: Install on internal device storage
    2 [external]: Install on external media

    which I did and rebooted the phone, tried to download a game to check if it works with no luck! it still uses the phone memory!
    I attached a snapshot of the command line, even when I check the status, the phone replies with the new changed value, so i know the phone system accepted the command, but it does not make the apps save to the SD card!

    does anyone know if it works? or if im missing a step here or there?
    (I did install all required software/drivers, turned on USB debugging, checked the option on Unknown sources, and rebooted the phone).
    thanks for any help!

    One i use to use on the optimus s...(i know different brands but may still work.) Was link2SD. you had to be rooted but with a big enough SD card i put almost all my apps on my SD (the ones you cant are play store and link2sd....). Is this app available for the Note 2? I just got mine a few months ago and did not have any problems with memory.
