I recently got the app, Advanced SD card something. IDK the full name but searching Advanced SD will find it.Anyway, I turn on my phone after moving all my apps to my SD card, and many, if not most, are all missing. Like, my home screen has the empty boxes as my apps icons and I go to that app menu thing and they are missing. I try to find them but I cannot. I try to re-install them but I cannot.
Of all the apps on my Droid, I only found 15 that could be moved. For testing I moved 1.. but where did it go? I expected to find it in a new directory or as an apk at the root of the SD card. No such luck. Any ideas?
I have an Asus MeMo Pad HD7 and I have alot of Game Apps from Google Play installed on the Tablet's Internal onboard storage and I'm starting to run out of storage space. I know you can't install Game Apps directly to an external SD Card but can the Games be moved to the SD Card from the Tablet's on board storage so I can free up storage space then later on move the Game Apps from the SD Card back to the Tablet's onboard storage? If so what is the process of doing that?
I did a dumb thing. First, I installed Angry Birds (this was not the dumb thing, by the way, unless you count how much of my life it has consumed) and then moved the app to the SD card.The dumb thing was that a while later I was charging my phone via my computer (and I was in Disk Drive mode) and I went to play the game. Well, the icon was wrong and the game wouldn't play, so I panicked thinking that I might have lost all my progress. I went out to the market and re-downloaded the game. Whew! All my progress was still there.Later the whole you-just-couldn't-access-your-SD-card-at-the-moment-you-idiot thing sank in and I realized I had the app on both the card and in phone storage. So I went into Applications and tried to move it to the SD card, but I got an error (presumably because it's already there). So now it's taking up room in phone storage and I don't want it to. I'm afraid if I uninstall the app completely that I really will lose my progress. Any suggestions?
Love apps so was pleased to get 2.2 and start moving stuff over to create space but noticed than when an app moves, it typically takes up a lot less space.
As an example, install alchemy today: Space according to market = 2.08MB Without running, app manager space reported = 2.35MB Move to SD Space reported = 276KB
I haven't done any kind of detailed research so I'm not sure why this is but would make a guess at the install/temp files being disposed of when they move...?? Makes sense to me, all apps still work fine but take up much less space.
I'm not understanding why some apps (even those that haven't been run or aren't running) can't be moved to the SD, while others can. Of the 50 or so apps on my phone, it seemed that 80% of them had the "Move to SD" grayed out. Anyone know why?
i decided to download a bunch of games, i never used enough applications to need to move them to my sd, but since i downloaded a lot of them some started to get installed to the sd and i manually moved some of them too to the sd card. But while i was still downloading more apps, some of them started to show the android icon, and when i tried to run them they crashed. The weird part is that it was just some of them.
phone to reload and see the apps, but that just made it worst since those, and some others went totally missing from the drawer. Is not because the launcher loads before the sd card is read because i already checked that.So i went to settings>applications and discovered that all those applications are listed there but listed with their other name (dont know how to call it, but is like "com.developer.app" ). All of the missing apps are like that and i cant run them.
- I have formatted the sd using gparted, same behavior - I have formatted the sd and the internal (sd?) with the phone - I have done a factory reset with no luck - I have runned fsck in both internal and external sd's - The files of the applications are in the .android_secure folder in the external sd card "app.asec" - The sd card is working (files music, everything else is working) - I dont know what else to do, I want to be able to use my sd card to install apps
I recently changed the storage location on my Incredible's camera from Phone Storage to Storage Card (i.e., my SD card). Yesterday I decided to move the previsouly taken photos "IMAG*.jpg" from the phone storage to the SD card and used the Astro app to perform this move. I made the mistake of using "move" rather than "copy-paste". Something went wrong and somehow none of the "imag*.jpg" that were previously on my phone's internal storage are neither there nor on the SD card.
Where could these files have disappeared to? Is there a "Trash" folder in Android like in Windows where these jpg files could be still hidden? Anyway to recover them? Using the search feature on Astro didn't reveal any of the newly disappeared jpg files.
Here's what I did using the Astro app: step 1: navigated to /emmc/DCIM/100MEDIA step 2: clicked on multi and selected all the jpg files there (about 15 or so), i.e., all file names turned orange. step 3: clicked on Edit, selected Move. step 4: navigated to /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA which already had a few images that I had taken since changing the default storage location in my camera. step 5: clicked on EDIT, selected Paste. That's when I got a message saying "unable to move" or some such error - I don't recall the exact words and I had to click ok only for the same error to appear again some 15 more times. I guess it appeared once per image.
I went back to /emmc/DCIM/100MEDIA (the phone storage location) and to /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA (SD card location) but the files aren't there in either location. Please note that I'm a noob to Android having only used Windows Mobile OS phones in the past. I appreciate any help and insight in this matter so that I don't loose files more important than some randomly taken pics.
So with the last few ROMs I've had installed, I've tried moving apps to the sdcard. I figured it would be a good thing, even if I wasn't running out of room. Every time I move more than just a few apps to the sdcard, my whole phone starts getting laggy. I just moved all of my apps back to phone and the "lagginess" is gone. I currently have UD8.0 installed, but it has behaved this way with LFY and Pete's BB ROMs as well. So it doesn't seem to be a ROM related.
Ever since I updated, whenever I use the Advanced Task Killer to close all the apps, some of them open automatically right away. Over 10 apps open by themselves since the update. I never had this problem before the update.
I never check allow auto updating any apps especially google ones because by default they have that setting prechecked.
My Xoom Tablet has been running the older verison of the youtube app since I got it because I really liked the interface and don't like the new version my GN has. So I was just changing a wall paper on my Xoom and all a sudden BAM it reboots and starts back up. a little strange but then I see my notifications going off. [xapp] successfully updated. I was like WHAT ..I check whats going on and I see Youtube at 90%.. you bastard all my apps updated and the check on all google apps has been applied to auto update.
I never heard of this happening so i did a quick search on the Google and i only saw this thread.Google Play Store just auto updated all my apps on its own WTF - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
now i got to search for a old apk of the older youtube. or see if a factory reset will give me the old version back.
I know this has been brought up in the past, but last mention of this is about 3 months ago. And in those 3 months, there have been probably thousands more new apps out there for our phone.So, what are the favorites? And what are must-haves? This goes for games as well. Are there games that are still getting constant play on your phone?In my opinion, Handcent and Shapewriter seem to be my favorite and necessary ones. As for games, I keep playing Cestos.
I have been gone for awhile with life stuff, sorry this wasn't updated. I wont be updating this as I don't have an Eris anymore, but if you want the best info head over to XDA Eris Android Development section. Or if your looking for Android News or other tech news head over to: Hope to see you all in the Incredible or Droid X section. Remember.... ?Never take a person's dignity: it is worth everything to them, and nothing to you.? 2.1 LEAKS & RELEASES & ROOT
I think it's getting confusing w/ all these releases. Let's summarize:Original root: Filename PB00IMG.zip. An "unofficial official" ROM that provides you with initial root. Can only be flashed from a phone running 1.5. Not to be confused with any of the "unofficial official" 2.1 leaks that don't have root. 2.1 leak: Filename PB00IMG.zip. Also an "unofficial official" ROM that upgrades your 1.5 phone to a 2.1 un-rooted OS. New 2.1 leak: Filename PB00IMG.zip. Another "unofficial official" ROM that upgrades your 1.2 or "2.1 leak" phone to the most recently available un-rooted version of Android 2.1. ** By "unofficial official" I mean that the ROM's are signed by HTC and must be installed from the phone's bootloader. We cannot edit and repack files to be loaded using the phone's stock bootloader, as we cannot sign these ROM's ourselves...........
My phone is telling me my internal storage is nearly full, whereas I have a 4gb microsd card which is not being used. How do I move my applications to the SD card (or how do I have my apps automatically install there in the future)

I'm running AppsToSD with this procedure: http://www.coolpstutsite.com/Other_Tutorials.html With a 8 gb class 4 card. I created a 500 mb EX2 partition. Using AppsToSD, I moved all applications, but not the cache, as I have been advised that the class 4 sd could have slowdown issues moving the cache as well. I have about 45 apps on the phone. The available internal memory is sitting at 16 mb available. Does this sound about right? It seems low to me.
So just checked my upgrade date and its later than what I was hoping. anyone know of anything I can do to try and get the date moved up? ts set for October 23 and I have resourced back to my old droid that has a lot of problems and just cant wait any longer for the upgrade to the DX.
So I just got my Nexus One (like literally a few hours ago) and yay everything is nice (well not everything - for some reason I can't download apps from the market). Anyways, I figure, let's see how this thing is for reading pdfs.
I mounted it as a drive via usb. Created a docs directory, and place a pdf book in it.
Ok...Now how do I open that file?
Again we're talking Nexus One 2.1-update1 Kernel 2.6.29-01117 Build ERE27 (who the hell has letters in their build names!?)
What is the best way to constantly update the center of a mapView's latitude and longitude in an Android application? I need to display it on a label that is shown on top of the map. I know you can call MapViewObject.getMapCenter() to get a GeoPoint of the center of the map, but where would I place that code so that it is called every time the user moves the map or zooms in/out?
Rather than asking about how to move apps to the SD card, which I'm sure has been done to death, I'm wondering about what happens when your phone finally gets an OTA update that allows native SD apps.Will Google provide something that will allow you to easily port your crowded apps over to the SD card? Or are we all going to have to just suck it up and reinstall everything?
I just got a new SD card and was wondering if it did any harm if I just put it in my phone?Is there something I should do first?I know some apps write to the memory of the card so I didn't know if this did any damage?
I have a Droid Eris, and in preparation for the impending firmware update, I am trying to back up my apps to an SD card. I downloaded AppMonster and noted that 2 free and 1 paid app are marked 'protected'. I proceeded to 'Backup' and noted those 3 did not back up. How can I get the paid app to save to an SD card? It is the Pure Calendar Widget.
So I've downloaded a couple of games from Omni G Soft. I have played them on my Windows Mobile phone and love them. They are sitting on my SD card because I cannot figure out how to open them or run them. How do I run or install apps loaded on my SD card. the program App Installer wont work. I need another way. FYI - I am NO programmer.
