Can't move apps to sd card

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

I have rooted mine, just a plain simple root but haven't unlocked the bootloader, so certain things like CWM don't work yet but it is definitely rooted with no issues.  I used Vroot, lots of guides etc online for this and 360root from the day I got my Z1.

My question is how do I move apps to SD just by being rooted?  Is it simply find the partition where the APKs are and move in file manager?  Also coming from S2 (brilliant phone) I find it madness that this functionality isn't available straight out of the box.

Can't move apps from internal memory to sd card

Is there any way to move apps to the sd card. My internal storage is already full, I thought it was possible with this phone but it isn't. Please remove the lock from the firmware please. Now I got a fast 64gb micro sd for nothing.

It is a known issue for all Android Jelly Bean devices, however, shamesung already fixed it and removed the lock. We expect that Sony will fix it soon too.

How to move app on Z1 to SD-card?

I just got my  new sony Z1, and  its a great phone, no  doubt about that.  But    only 16  gb internal memory  is to small, and i need to move apps to my  installed SD-card.

 

So how can i do so?   or  more exact, WHEN will Sony make it possible to move apps to  SD card?

Re: How to move app on Z1 to SD-card?

This is not possible, you will have to root your phone > partition your SD card > install an app (link2sd, apps2sd, etc)

Transferring apps to SD card

Hi all, I have moved over from its to Android having purchased an Xperia Z1 and Z tablet. Many of the things I like but am not digging poor 16GB internal storage of the devices. I thought things would be fine by putting in 64gb SD cards and whilst have managed to put my music and photos on this, pretty much everything else wants to go to internal memory only. This is very tiresome and I'm down to the last few GB of internal storage. I understand that if I root the phone I can use apps like titanium backup to move apps but this scares me and would like to keep (some) of Sony UI so am keen to try and move some of apps, such as Kindle, to SD card without rooting. Any ideas..... Sony bods feel free to jump in, thanks

Re: Transferring apps to SD card

We all would love if it would be possible to move data to sd like it was in the past, I am almost done with internal storage as well just because of a few heavy games...
