A2SD Force apps to install on internal Memory

6 posts in this topic

Is it possible to force install a single app to Internal memory when using A2SD scripts? Googled and a few people asking the same thing but no proper answers. Some apps just don't function correctly or won't install at all.

Hi cwBob...

This is the thing with dt a2sd....

it is an all or nothing approach.....

you see as far Android is concerned, the sd-ex partition is your Internal [phone] memory....

and the Management of DT A2SD with A2SDGUI allows you to keep all user apps in "real" /data/app folder or you move all apps by creating sym-link [like a Win doze shortcut] of /data/app folder to your new sd-ext partition in your SD card....

no half measures allowed!!!!

see hear:

But, there is another way, by using link2sd you can get the advantages of DT A2SD and the ability to keep some apps in the real phone memory.....check it out in Play....

or XDA:

As a matter if interest, which apps are troubling you, as A2SD is normally very resilient!!!

Thanks Irishpancake. Having issues with RBS (bank app), nectar and a few other apps I tried. Nothing major really - I can live with it :) Might check out link2sd, thanks for that

Have you tried the apps with a2sd before? It could be the ROM, or perhaps the developers of the app haven't updated it to be compatible with the version of android you're using. I haven't really experienced any a2sd specific issues with any app ever, seems a little odd really.

Link2SD with DT A2SD can get very messy so proceed with caution. Speaking from bad experience so make a nandroid backup before anything. Bootloops/FCs of all apps including launcher can occur.
