HTC EVO 4G : Restore Apps On SD Card After Installing ROM

Aug 30, 2010

I was wondering how do you get your apps on your SD card back after installing a new ROM? I run a backup using MyBackup Pro and after installing a new ROM and restoring from my backup, my apps that I had moved over to my SD Card don't show up on my phone. I have to reinstall them. Is there anyway to recover them from my SD Card automatically.

What are the benefits to my D1 if I transfer all of my apps to the SD card? I once tried it, and immediately after my phone started to lag REALLY bad , so I put everything back on the internal memory.

I assume I did something wrong , and would like to know the correct way to do it and why I should.

Android :: Installing App Without SD Card

Nov 16, 2010

I uploaded an apk file to a web server and attempted to access the link from the browser on the phone. When I attempt to download from that link I receive an error message that reads "An SD card is required to download." I do not have an SD card installed, but the internal memory is not full, so I would expect the app to install to internal memory.

The obvious solution is to install an SD Card. Putting an SD card in the device does allow the app to install. So, the question is why is this necessary?

Nowhere in my app do I specify that this needs to be installed on an SD Card. I've tried leaving the installLocation blank and setting it to "auto" and "internalOnly". I've scoured the forums and not found a reason for this.

Android :: Installing Applications On SD Card

Feb 13, 2009

I hope you guys can implement that in the next android updates. It is really cool that all the applications are free, but the G1 phone doesn't have a lot of on board memory, so please implement the feature to install applications on the SD Card. That is the only comment I have. A lot of people are Jailbreaking their phones just so they can get to that feature. Please consider it. Thank you. One more thing-If you can make it possible to save the browser cache data on the SD card as well will be awesome.

Android :: Installing Applications Onto MicroSD Card

Jun 3, 2010

Can someone please tell me how to install apps directly onto the microSD card? Even brand new the HTC Desire seems to only have 100MB to download and install applications on so I find it much more sense being able to store and install them on a 32GB microSD card. My internal memory is full now and I barely have any apps installed on it yet have about 900 applications I can install so I at least want to put more on!

Android :: Programmatically Installing A 3rd Party App Onto The SD Card

May 28, 2010

I am trying to install a 3rd party free app through code. I initially download the apk from the web-site (, store it on a SD Card. I am using an emulator to check whether my app is working properly or not. I have attached a SD card to the currently running avd.

Then when the user clicks on the Install, I use this code to install it on the SD card.


I read somewhere that in order to install 3rd party apps we need to set the value of INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS to 1. Do we need to set any permission in the manifest file. Also, when I checked logcat I got the following error

Could not read the AndroidManifest.xml file of /sdcard/test.apk and then it threw a FileNotFound Exception

Android :: Installing Apps Without Market

Oct 21, 2009

I have recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy android phone. I wish to install applications that I download legally from the internet.I do not agree to the android-market licence agreement and have clicked on "decline". I only wish to install apps that I get elsewhere because I do not approve of the remote-kill clause in the market licence.All tutorials on how to install a downloaded app involve me first installing "app installer" from the market. That cannot be right. I cannot be forced to accept the market licence agreement in order to be able to install non market apps.Any suggestions on how I might get apps installed without ever clicking on "accept" on the market's licence agreement?I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. ANY suggestions welcome. I will not accept a remote kill switch. My files are my files.

Anyone ever had this happen? Downloaded an update after the 2.1 upgrade and I sync'd my contacts with FB.

It just stays on Installing.However, the FB app works fine on the phone itself.Is this a Market glitch? Is there anyway I can purge it from out of my downloads section?

I have a 16GB card I want to use to replace the included card, and am curious to know if any fancy preparation is needed. Can I just copy over the original's folder structure and contents and start using the extra space, or is something else necessary to avoid having strange things happening with my installed apps?

General :: Everything On Ext SD Card Inaccessible After Installing New ROM?

Jun 3, 2012

I recently flashed my Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 with the Resurrection Remix ICS v.1.9.1 ROM and everything went fairly well except that my external sdcard looked like it had been totally erased. While this was irritating it was not devastating (had a backup) but when i attached my sgs2 to my computer to copy the backup back to the sdcard i noticed that everything was there, i hadn't lost a single file. I went back and looked at the card via my phone and it still looks empty but i did notice (after further inspection) that it is almost full. I checked to make sure view hidden files was enabled, it was, but still nada (using OI File manager and File Explorer).

Android : Does Installing Apps Slow Phone?

May 10, 2010

I really like installing apps, testing them, and removing them. Does installing apps and then uninstalling them end up making your phone slower? I don't have my Incredible yet but I don't want to install all these apps to just test if it will end up slowing my phone down when I remove them! I know Windows does get slower by installing and uninstalling apps, OS X not so much. How does Android fare?

Motorola Droid X :: Installing Themes From Sd Card

Oct 8, 2010

So yesterday I rooted my device yesterday. Today I did Droid X Bootstrap Recovery, Deodex, and backed up after deodex using ROM Manager. I got the rubix .3 ROM, and installed that. From what Ive read is to install a theme you need to put the folder on the sd card. In the root fold of my sd I already have an file. What is this? Do I need to put the them in the root of the sd? Or can I make a themes folder with subfolders and put the themes there?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Installing External SD Card?

Nov 11, 2010

I know an SD card gives you extra memory for media files, but since the phone comes with 16GB is it really necessary? The basic iPhone 4 comes with 16GB and I don't think most users are clamoring for more.

Does it help the SGS speed if you leave most of the internal memory free (only using it for apps) and use the external card for all your files?

Or does it just provide an opportunity to go crazy with storing files, like an entire season of a TV show for instance?

All that being said... yes I did spring for an 8GB SD card but is it money well spent... who knows.

Android :: Installing Apps On Acer Netbook Running?

Dec 7, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire netbook which dual boots Android and XP. I am trying to figure out how to (1) look at the file system (with a file manager type of interface), and (2) install an app on it (specifically one that I am developing). It seems like all this should be obvious, but the netbook isn't something that I can just hook up to my SDK using USB so apps don't install on it the same way that they do on (say) a Droid. The environment seems to be relatively closed compared to other devices. Maybe there is a way to ssh into it over the network?
