On Ice Cream Sandwich, I used to use an app called DS Super App2SD but it doesn't work on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. I'm using Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 running on Cyanogenmod 10.2 nightly (Android 4.3.1)

I already tried the adb shell pm set-install-location to SD card location. It made everything worst by thinking my empty 32GB micro SD was full. So I set it back to 0.


In my case, I am on android 4.2.2 so things should not be changed much on your environment. However, what I do, From Settings>application/apps I get my all applications installed on my device. So, if any application supports to be moved on to SD card, i can simply move it by pressing the Application icon>move to sdcard.

If it doesn't help. Try using Link2SD. This should do your job.

  • There's no Option like that to move apps to SD on 4.3. DS super Apps to sd used to rely on your method but it doesn't exist anymore. – answerSeeker Jan 6 '14 at 20:59

In short - you don't. Not natively.

You can, however, try to use Mounts2SD: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.spazedog.mounts2sd

It can, however, be tricky since it uses some low-level magic. Be sure to backup. I would advise against Links2SD, it failed me a few times already.


you could partition your SD on a PC with one for the user area and the other for apps, copy /data partition to the app section on the sd then edit the mount points by finding out the partition id of the app section on your sd then mounting /data on it.
