Question :-How to unlock view get app info "Move app to SD card" option locked missing in android 5.1.1?
I have two mobiles of same company with different model both having same os android 5.1.1 sharing below screenshot of about phone of both mobiles
Lyf water 7 ls 5004 about phone
Lyf wind 6 ls 5009 about phone
But one of the mobile model Lyf wind 6 ls-5009 (with 8gb internal memory) is showing "Move to SD card" option in setting apps but another mobile model Lyf water 7 ls 5504 (internal memory 16gb) one is missing locked not showing option for same app "move to sd card" may be locked by OEM. Screenshot of same app settings for both mobile option pasted below.
Lyf wind 6 ls 5009 app info (move to sd card option available)
Lyf water 7 ls 5504 app info (move to sd card missing)
** My queries**
How to unlock view or see the same option "move to sd" in another model lyf water 7 of android 5.1.1 by modifying the settings through any adb shell fastboot or terminal with or without rooting the mobile.
I tried app manager III or app2sd or link2sd apps on unrooted and rooted mobile to do the same but all fails to move the apps. All apps when move to sd option clicked they open take me open same dialogue box window to original settings>app>appinfo option to move apps ( as shown in screenshot above) and there no option of move app to sd
Link2sd when app moved to move to sd it gave following error and link to sd is grayed out and disabled and not working (even on rooted phone)
pkg: /data/app/ com.gmail.heagoo.sdcardmovable-1/ base.apk Failure [INSTALL FAILED INVALID_INSTALL LOC ATION]
Storage screenshot of link2sd of lyf water 7
I tried adb shell pm set-install-location 2 in rooted mobile it's changed succesfully but still apps installed through Google Play Store or apkpure do not installs automatically to external sd card they still installing in internal storage not
I know all apps are not movable as their app mainfest don't allow I had tried to edit apk editor default prefered install location to external still same app without editing the app is moving to sd card in one mobile and no option of moving not showing option in another mobile with same android 5.1.1 same app same kernal version same.company but different models it means there is some setting lock or change how can we modify or unlock that option .
Any more setting I can alter to get the result of moving apps to sd card on my lyf water 7 ls 5504. Any adb shell command. I don't know if its locked in rom or hardware incompatibility then will 3rd party custom rom available in xda may be android 6.03 or android 7.1.1 or android 8,9,10 will allow or have such option and work in the same mobile or not
If there is any hardware or rom uncompatibilty or lock by manufacturer or vendor I am worried if I install custom rom of android 6.0.3 marshemellow or android 7.1.1 then will they have such option or not to move app to sd or to format as as internal in both custom rom
