Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 28

The Galaxy S3, and pretty much every other phone with internal flash + sd card treats the internal flash as primary storage and any additional SD cards as secondary storage, because unlike SD-only phones like the Desire the user is able to pull the card out at any time. So allowing the user to move app data to secondary storage would result in the phone becoming completely unusable in the event the user misplaces the SD card.
But I wouldn't say its impossible. You should be able to ln -s /Android /sdcard/Android. That would let you move apps to secondary storage. You'd just have to be watchful of the phone mounting the sd card to a different directory.

Other ICS phones with external storage allow you to move apps to them. You could symlink sd card to extsdcard but the the whole internal storage wouldn't get used.

There's a solution out there, though, that blends them together, so a 16gb phone with a 16gb sd card reads as a 32gb internal storage phone with no sd card. Then you can have a much larger storage. My phone in particular is 10mb/s write, so a class 10 card would work well.

Yeah I wonder, with Directory Bind (root App), I've got the contents of my MicroSD card linked to a folder called extSDCard in my internal storage. The files aren't physically there but if you enter this folder, you see the contents of my MicroSD card and can manipulate all the data (I use this so that AirDroid can access my MicroSD card). Could I not for example choose to install an App in (or move an App to) the extSDCard folder in my internal memory? The phone would think it's in the internal memory but it turns out it's actually the MicroSD card...

Now that's a good idea. I use Airdroid and that'd be quite handy. I have "Wi-Fi File Explorer Pro" also which would work well with that.

BTW, get onto Kies and check out Samsung Apps, there's a few free games going to celebrate the lunch (still) I got Eternal Legacy HD (GameLoft) and Real Racing 2 (EA Games). All the rest look crap but those are ok. Also, the paid-for levels of Angry Birds Space are free to Samsung owners for a short period of time, so get it and check them out ASAP to unlock them for free wink.gif

The thing with the apps are you don't get to choose where they move their data to. They have a predetermined location. You could move them to the SD card and then symlink the folder or use CIFS manager to do somethign similar. The phone wouldn't know the difference and the data would be on another card saving space. Or Samsung could pull their finger out and sort it out!

Also, newest version of CWM 6.0.1.0 Touch is out. NanDroid backups are now smaller and able to backup to the External SD card which is handy.

EDIT:

This is the mod I was thinking of. I think it just swaps around the mounts so that the phone memory is actually the external and the external is seen as internal. I wouldn't do it on less than a class 10, though, to ensure it's the same speed:

Nah there aren't any like that, I looked extensively. You can also check out here: http://www.samsungapps.com/ as well. Eternal Legacy (like Final Fantasy) and Real Realing (fairly good as well) on there. They say "discount" under them. You may be able to download the APK's from there too. That's all Kies does. IT just throws them into a SamsungAppsKies folder on the phone.

Also, Polaris Office 4.0 was supposed ot be released for free on SamsungApps but it's not there for some reason. Polaris said on their Facebook page that this is an issue and they're working it out ASAP. So keep an eye out for that if you are interested!

Polaris was already on my phone? Was that just the lite version or something?
