How to move System Apps to SD Xperia Neo v

Hi Friends

I would like to move system apps to sd card, so i can get more free space and speed in phone memory.

I already have rooted xperia neo v and tried to move System Apps to SD card through

Settings >> Applications >> Manage Applications >> (Move to SD card)

but It allows me to move installled apps only even after having root access.

Also tried App2SD but the same result.

Guys Please help me to move system apps to sd card after having root access.

What can i do with root access ???

Re: How to move System Apps to SD Xperia Neo v

you have to partition your SD card > use link2sd and that should do it

@Uliwooly. thanks for the suggestions.

Agreed link 2 sd used with partition. and will be able to move system apps to sd card, but it was used in Android 1.6+. and from 2.2 onwards it supports App2Sd

Why we need to have separate partition for system apps, where we already have functionality to transfer Apps to SD card without any partition.

Is ther other way to transfer apps without having a partition ?

not all the apps can be moved to the SD card, if it has a widget it can't, Google Music has a widget and you were able to move it to the SD card but, by doing so, the widget didn't work at all or didn't appeared on the widget menu.
