I recently rooted my phone, so obviously the first thing I did was

 pm setInstallLocation 2

then move all my internal storage hogging apps to the SD card. I left the widgets, wallpapers, and system app updates because moving them will break them apparently. My question is, can I move my keyboard app to the SD card without breaking it?

Which keyboard app are you using? It doesn't break normally on SD card. I have used stock and SwiftKey both on SD card. Never cause any problem to me.


Works fine on SD card, using swype on external memory.


It worked fine for me. Obviously if you unmount your SD card you can't use it, so, since you want so save space, my advice is to download a small-size keyboard and install it in the internal memory. Trust me, not having a keyboard when needed is a big problem

  • "trust me when I say you that can't using the keyboard is a big nuisance"....? Sorry, but I don't understand your point here.

  • Right. The Samsung default keyboard is extremely annoying.
