[Q] LG Optimus L9: How to install apps to sd card
By default, internal memory call is "sdcard" and sdcard will call "ex-sdcard" , so, apps will install on "sdcard". it make internal memory get low when i install some apps with big data. Now, my sdcard is free to 3,5Gb but i can't install any app because "sdcard" is full anyone can help me solve this ?
You need rooted phone for this Sent from my ST23i using xda app-developers app
thx, but you can say what i need to do after my phone rooted? my way now is move manually all data from Android folder in internal memory to Android folder on sdcard
The phone has the internal memory mounted on /sdcard, and the external sd card mounted on /sdcard/external_sd. Many apps save their data on /sdcard, so in the internal memory. I used this script to mount the data from my external sd to the right location (you need root and busybox): This will move the data to the external sd. To move the app (apk file) you should use something like this: I'm using ScriptManager to run the scripts at boot.
Why on earth would LG release the phone like this? It makes sd cards useless. Apps don't use the sd card at all and install extra data to the tiny internal storage itself which is only 2Gb. I can't even download offline maps because I don't have enough space. Has LG acknowledged the problem? I'm going to return this phone because of this
Here the solution: [TOOL] DirectoryBind - move data to external_sd (GameLoft, Shadowgun etc.) ROOT req http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410262
Is this software "DirectoryBind" also works with latest Lg L9.. .?? I haven't rooted yet but if it works well, then I'll definitely root. I only root my phone bcoz of moving apps from phone external sd card. Currently Lg L9's root is temporary only, So what the differnce will I face when working on phone (rooting just bcoz of moving app), plz reply ASAP
