Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 - Move apps to SD Problem

0
June 27, 2016

Hi,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. (Android OS, v4.0.4)

I am trying to move the apps installed to SD but its not happening there is no such option i tried the well known apps on play store for this task but they also don't have any such feature when installed on my phone. One of them even has it posted on its app description as given below:

Galaxy S3 is not supported:

* Galaxy S3 configures the SD card as a secondary external storage. This is configured by Samsung. Nothing developers can do about this. Please contact Samsung for details.

Not supported devices:

* Galaxy S3, Note 2, Galaxy Nexus, Tablets

* read FAQ 10 for details: App 2 SD > MENU > Settings > About > FAQ

I have also tried the

adb shell pm set-install-location 2

command in the proper way.(The same command worked for my HTC Desire S and HTC Wildfire S).

So, Guys is there a way to move apps to the SD card, WITHOUT ROOTING. Just give me any information you might have about this. I am

assuming this i a problem with the Samsung Android OS.

Since its gonna be my everyday usage phone, i don't feel like playing around or changing the stock OS.

Minor tweaks are alright.

Thanks Guys.

Yes I have the same issue and would like to know if that is possible.

I know there is a fix for the SIII but you need root and I do not know if there is a rooting solution for this phone already.

Please let us know if there is root and/or non-root solution available...

Thank you very much!

Hi,

I install my apps in normal way. Afterwards I open the standard filemanager, go to the app directory and use the menue button. Then choose "move" and transfer the app directory to the extSdcard and fill in. Now use the app and have fun. Most of my apps operate from the extSdcard without any problem.

Guys i called up Samsung the person at the call center tried to argue with me and give me all the procedures and information like i was a noob (the same things we all have tried or read on the net.) It seems they also don't know that they have a problem !! So, I got angry so he said he'll arrange a call from "TECHNICAL EXECUTIVE REPRESENTATIVE" ( the names they think for position to make them sound important

)

And when i got from this above mentioned person she tried to give me the same answer but when i further protested she accepted that this is a limitation of the OS customizations by Samsung.

So, Guys only solution to this problem -- Use a Custom ROM..(CM or some other i don't know)

Please post the name and version, if some one is happy with the Custom ROM they might be using on this phone. (like if it has all the features running)

Isn't there anyway to swap sdcard by extSdCard?

/dev/fuse gets mounted on /sdcard - internatl storage

I've tried with a script on init.d to umount /sdcard and then mount mount my external sdcard on /sdcard, but doesn't work, it mounts /dev/fuse again on /sdcard

---------- Post added at 04:45 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:02 PM ----------

I think i got it, now my sdcard partition (/dev/block/mmcblk1p1) apears mounted on /mnt/sdcard along with /dev/fuse wich is kind of weird, but is working:

You can use Directory bind to move stuff to ext sd card and to bind them to internal memory, or you can use Mounts2sd to move folders to ext sd card or to swap internal with external memory (for this you will have to create ext4 partition on your sd card). Both apps need root.

instead of Move2SD you need choose make Link. Then App will be linked to /data/sdext2. Moving is not possible enable due to limitation of sw and hw of some Samsung phones.

Maximum capacity od second SD is 1024MB, formated ie. as ext2. You can check it by TotalCMD

Don't you think applications will use SD Card as primary memory for running apps if you change mount point and that will cost us in terms of performance?

Hi Guys! Finally i have got a way to swap sd card on a rooted phone but it should be running ICS. i have personally tested this on ICS. check for others too, please.

Things Required:-

A rooted ICS phone.

Terminal emulator

Instructions:-

  1. Open Terminal Emulator on your Phone.

  2. Type

and press enter

  1. Allow root access to Terminal Emulator.

  2. Now copy the whole code snippet into it and press enter.

Code:

sleep 2
mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir -p /data/internalsd
mount -o bind /mnt/sdcard /data/internalsd
mount -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/block/vold/179:33 /mnt/sdcard
mount -o bind /data/internal_sd /mnt/extSdCard
  1. DONE!!!

Check your phone. SD card allocation has been switched.

This whole thing was tested on a rooted ICS official samsung rom and on Kyleopen Rom. Check this for others too.

Phone:-Samsung Galaxy S Duos[rooted with official and kyleopen rom(tested on both)]

PLEASE!! Press Thanks If Helped.

NO! you can play 720p videos on s duos.

  1. Download setcpu from playstore.

  2. set the min and max limits to 1008MHz.

  3. set the bottom left option to performance and the bottom right one to noop.

now restart your phone.

  1. open settings->developer options

  2. there is a setting in last.

  3. tick the option named "do not keep activites".

  4. and set the other limit to run only 1 background process.

  5. now open mx player and play the video through SW decoder. it will work without a hitch.

NOTE:- if it is still not working then clear ram too before playing the movie

link2sd app works great in s7562

Just Root Your Phone and Use GL to Sd App it is best and you can move almost any app or game.even if the size is more than 1 GB. link 2 sd is also helpful

0
June 27, 2016

You have three options :

1)internal external swap

2)use link2sd

3)use gl to sd

Okey so the first option is temporary, you can't remove your sdcard, and for the second option you need to partition your sdcard, and the part which you have given to link2sd is not usable at ol, it won't show up in your computer.. it will just be used by link2sd, also it just links the app to that partition and doesn't entirely moves it to sdcard

I would tell you to use gl to sd, because the bigger apps(mostly games) data entire data is moved to sdcard and there is no need for partitioning the sdcardjust the app stays in the internal memory, you just have to download the app from playstore and move the app to sd, but your device must be rooted

Press thanx if i helped

i will tell you how to swap your internal memory and external memory

ex. if you have a 8gb sd card, then your internal memory will be 8gb and the external will be 2gb

YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND I TAKE NO LIABILITY IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG

HERE IS THE PROCEDURE

for this your phone must be rooted download root external 2 internal app from play store. allow the superuser request when you open the app.

go to settings

here

select Default SGS3 roms

select send rescan

select use per default

then go to the ext.sdcard device access

there u will see /dev/block/vold/179:49

change it to /dev/block/vold/179.33

go back on clicking the enternal 2 internal on the up left of the screen

select at boot (if not selected)

then click on external>internal

then on **at boot if init.d....

TADA

THATS IT NOW GO TO SETTINGS AND SEE YOUR STORAGE
