Well, I have a Motorola Razr I and, as expected, my internal storage was pretty limited (only 5 gbs). Of course, I already had a SD card which I inserted into my phone to expand it's memory to 25 gbs (more or less), but ran into a couple of problems.
First of those problems was that I had to specify to my Razr that, from now on, my default install and download location would be the aforementioned SD card and, in order to do that, I had to run the following command line: ... set-install-location 2.
After a couple of failed attempts, I managed to make it work. I wrote such line in the command prompt and managed to verify that, indeed, the default install location was "2". Unfortunately, when I tried downloading an app off Google Play, I still got the Not enough memory available message. The worst part is that I went through the process over and over again and could not find where my mistake was.

Any ideas?


If you're on Android 4.4, write permissions to sd card for apps have been disabled. If you're rooted, you can try SD Fix to permanently fix permissions.

If you're rooted and have a custom ROM, you can try this.
Basically mounts your external SD card as the internal SD card, and the internal as the external.

  • I'm not rooted, and I do not have a custom ROM. Is there any other way around? – Isaac Apr 1 '13 at 3:26
  • doesn't seem to be... Not that I could find. Seems a common problem with RAZR's though – ElefantPhace Apr 1 '13 at 3:36
