Installera ALLA program på SD-kortet i Android

Posted on | oktober 16, 2011 | 3 Comments

Har du oxå problem med att det interna lagringsminnet börjar ta slut i din Androidtelefon? Isf ska du ta och följa denna instruktion så kommer du att ha hur mycket ledigt som helst i telefonen för ”stockinterna” program som kalender osv, som kan vara bra om man använder telefonen i jobbet. 🙂

Ett smidigt program för att installera drivrutinen från Google till Windows är ”PdaNet for Android” om du får problem den vanliga vägen.

Med denna installation så ändrar du oxå ”default location” på nya program från det interna minnet till SD-kortet. 🙂

Moving (almost) all Android apps to SD card

To run commands which will enable Move to SD card button for most installed apps, you need to have adb executable on your computer. Adb stands for Android Debug Bridge and is used for Android software development, but it is a very useful tool to have for any advanced Android user. You do notneed to have a rooted phone to run adb commands.

  1. To download the latest version of Android SDK (which includes adb executable), follow instructions from step 2 in the Installing the SDK article from the official Android development site. Note: you do not need to install any other software such as Eclipse for this procedure.
  2. After downloading the archive of the SDK, unzip it to any folder and remember its location (let’s call this folder <sdk>).
  3. If you are installing Android SDK on Windows machine, you also need to install USB driver as described in USB driver for Windows section.
  4. Connect the phone using USB cable and do not enable USB storage mode. Go to Settings -> Applications -> Development and enable USB debugging.
  5. Start terminal window on your computer.
  6. Navigate to folder containing file named “adb” (updated to reflect move of adb from sdktools to sdkplatform-tools in 2.3):
    • If using SDK 2.2 or older: in the terminal window navigate to <sdk>tools folder (using “cd full-path-to-sdk-tools” command).
    • If using SDK 2.3 or later: in the terminal window navigate to <sdk>platform-tools folder (using “cd full-path-to-sdk-platform-tools” command).
  7. Type the following two lines in the terminal window and press Enter after each line:
    • adb shell
      • [update] If you get “cannot find file” error and are using Mac or Linux, type “./adb shell” instead. [/update]
    • pm setInstallLocation 2
  8. Now on your phone go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications.
    • If you have Android 2.3 or later, click on USB Storage tab (may be called SD card). This tab shows a list of apps that either can be installed to SD card or are already on SD card. The ones that have checkbox on the right side are already moved to SD card (credit to Michael Scully for the tip).
    • On Android 2.2 and earlier if you don’s see USB Storage or SD Card tab, click on All tab.
    • Android USB storage tab

  9. Press hardware Menu button and select Sort by Size.
  10. Tap on each app that is taking significant amount of space and tap Move to SD card button. Press hardware Back button and repeat.
  11. (optional) To change the default installation location for new apps back to the internal phone memory,  go back to your terminal window and type:
    • pm setInstallLocation 0
  12. (important) Go to Settings -> Applications -> Development and disable USB debugging. Leaving USB debugging enabled makes your phone vulnerable (e.g. lock pattern can be reset).
  13. Enjoy!

    Hejsan,

    Jag vet faktiskt inte så här på rak arm men det borde väl kunna fungera. Bästa sättet är väl helt enkelt att pröva bara, speciellt om det är så att du har lite lagringskapacitet på din telefon. Ta och skriv ut instruktionen och försök därefter, lycka till och återkom gärna om hur det gick. 🙂
