    Hopefully this is accurate and hopefully comes to our phones soon. I'm willing to wait for this update If people report it working.

    Actually that's not possible, for that reason Samsung is releasing the patch

    Yeah I hope I'm wrong but apparently the update is out in certain markets.

    This is a video where I heard about the 50mb limit. Right around the 5min mark.



    GL to SD video review.



    By the way I tried GL to SD as in this video. It's not bad but Foldermount is much better. I have over 5gb free space on my phone where I would at this point have less than 500mb free with all the games I have installed. Every single thing I moved to sd worked flawlessly with a class 10 UHS1 microsd.

    GL to SD would not find certain apps to move to SD. With Foldermount it let's you navigate to what directories you want to move to the external. This includes the maps directory that NDrive uses taking up 2.5gb for device based navigation for US maps. And it seems like apps are properly updating as well. I will report back to confirm for sure, but I already saw Real Racing 3D download it's game files into the mounted folder on SD. I couldn't be happier.

    If you look at this screenshot I think what I have installed already surpasses the available storage on my device lol. But that is because the device obviously sees the mounted directories as internal.

    I even moved the Google Maps directory over and it works perfectly fine.

    There are a couple other directories I am considering moving to SD, such as the picture directories the phone refuses to use on SD by default, like pictures taken with the front camera. But i think with 5gb free space I'll hold off.

    Yes ,I know others options too, but the problem is all of these need to be used in a rooted phone, at least in my country I can't do that because I can lost the guaranty, so I need wait for the Samsung solution and my phone company to release the upgrade :banghead:

    It could be the weighted average estimate of installed apk file size. Some are a few megs and some are almost 100 (though rarer now, since most apps above 50mb go the small apk, large data file route).

    That said, 50 seems too high for an average. I have over 400 apps in my S3 and not many per ESExplorer are above 50 for the apk. Older apps appear to be the ones that are.

    It's the same on every carrier pretty much I'm sure. The phone can be unrooted if you need to take the phone in for repair and not worry about your warranty.

    Please clarify if there are any limits on app size with this update. Does it allow app data on SD? Does it allow the apk (the app itself) on sd or both?

    I don't think there is any limit as I've transferred NFS of size 1.6 GB and it's working fine..And as soon as you transfer app to SD card, all app data automatically goes to SD and voila.. your device space is free..

    I have to agree with you. My HTC Sensation is post ICS instal and the option to move apps to SD still exits and works lika it should. So whilst Google may have altered the defaults in the OS it seems manufacturers can override this if they choose to. Samsung clearly chooses not to.
    Android team took additional steps to make it more of a pain in JB (for unrooted resources). Depending how the install script was done for the app, I could move GTA with the old official apps 2 SD method as well as other big data games. The new Samsung fix is just the APK file, so instead of 1.3gb being moved, it is about 4mb. Same for most games with data files- small apk files and large data files. This fix only helps much for people that do not have many large data file apps.

    Are you sure?I read in others forums about the Samsung fix make the things like it was before, so you can move the most part of the app into the sd

    Only going by people that have already tried the update. Only the apk file moves and need root to move data.

    Just watched a video where the presenter moved GTA III Ten Year Anniversary APPto the SD card in an S4 with the new update:
    BEFORE (APP on internal memory) AFTER (APP on SD card)
    Total 1.23 GB..............................................1.23 GB
    Application 15.95 MB...................................708 KB
    SD card app 1.21 GB.................................1.23 GB
    Data 16 KB....................................................16 KB
    SD card data 636 KB..................................636 KB

    Looks like quite a bit of data was moved.
