How come Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 does not allow me to install apps onto my SD card?

by on December 10, 2012

Q: Hi, I bought a Samsung galaxy Ace 2 which operates android 2.3 and want to install a navigation program on it. The problem is that the phone’s internal memory is less than 1GB and it doesn’t allow me to install directly on my 8GB external sd card, nor does it allow moving programs from internal memory to the sd card, it just starts installing on the default internal memory. Now the question is, do you have a solution for that? Can I force programs to install on external sd card or at least have the choice during the installation? Thanks

      Hi Mark and thanks. In fact I already tried the adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2 method, all went fine but the problem remained intact, I still can’t install on (or move apps to) the external sd card.
