How to move application to SD card in samsung galaxy s duos.
I have tried some application from Google Play but did not succeed.
Plz help me
According to our tag wiki, the Duos comes with Android 4.x -- which natively supports to move apps to SD:
Settings→Apps→Manage Apps, sroll to the app you want to move, tapp the "Move to SDCard" button.
If the button is grayed out, the app does not support being moved to SDCard. See Unable to move few Apps to SD Card for details on that.
Questions (and their answers) you might want to check for further details:
EDIT: Googling around revealed several technical reviews stating that app2sd is not working on the Duos. Only known working solutions include either rooting the device, or using the Android SDK, see e.g. How to move almost all Android apps to SD card (no root required): here a comment reports to have successfully accomplished the task using a terminal emulator instead of the SDK. Putting things together, a How-To could basically look like this:
pm set-install-location 2, followed by the Enter key (if that throws an error other than "permission denied", try
pm setInstallLocation 2instead. In case of a "permission denied", you would need to root the device)
To my knowledge, this would only set the default installation target to the SDCard, but not move any apps itself. The howto there further describes one could then move apps manually. I have not tried this (I don't want to move things to SD), and so cannot confirm anything -- but it might be worth a try.
And again, the comments there are not all clear. While one claimed success, another user writes:
I can confirm this procedure cannot be done for Samsung S Duos. Even checked with Samsung Customer Care and they confirmed that Android 4.0x will not support movement of apps from the phone memory to External SD.
Same is, btw., claimed by LG support (something like "not our fault, blame Google"). But as other users say they can use app2sd fine on their 4.x devices, I cannot believe that it is ICS's fault, as the options are still shown fine even on my 4.1.x devices.
study the whole answer PATIENTLY and i am sure this will help
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
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....
THATS IT NOW GO TO SETTINGS AND SEE YOUR STORAGE
"THIS IS APPLICABLE ONLY FOR GALAXY S DUOS"
