APP2SD - Be Carefull using these apps
« on: April 27, 2012, 03:25:25 PM »

Everyone,

this is for the Airpad XL people:

be careful using app2sd apps. I just tried 3 different ones and none of them gave an option to change sdcard name/location, they move everything to your internal /mnt/sdcard which is NOT the place your external sdcard is mounted.

I just wanted to put this out there because alot of people r talking about backing up apps before they flash there device. you should use titanium backup or something similar.

can anyone using other Airpads ie 7P check and see if this is the same on there model and let people know.

Yes... Avoid this with the 7P. Early on, I used it and had to re-install all of the apps that I thought were moved correctly.
ICS's system settings allow you to move from the Tablet to SD (and back) safely. albeit manually. cj

I want to know how it is they say 4gb internal mem. However true that maybe the fact remains that half of that is mounted as the the sdcard. With the actual sdcard mounted as /extsd. Resulting in 2gb internal and 2gb sd. Sure up to 32 gb extsd is nice for storage, but it sure does limit the number of apps you can install.

??? It's even more confusing because (even though SD card and TF card are the same thing) the Documentation and the OS use the terms interchangeably. I know the Tiny SD cards are really "Trans Flash", But could we/developers call a Big Secure Digital card SD and a Trans Flash "Tiny Flash." just for understanding sake. We already call the itty bitty pin-head one MC for micro Flash, even though it's still SD.

In Ginger Bread, you can tell some programs to use the external storage; Titanium Backup for one.
I found this to be helpful.   DirectoryBind_0.2.0o.apk   I haven't played with it much except to tell Ginger Bread that all references to SD or TF card go to the external storage. It is a re-Direct and I have used it to redirect data, library, music, gallery to a 64 GB USB key while directing Applications to the External TF card, and making the internal SD card available for system Memory (Cache, etc.)

OK Ice Cream Sandwich is loaded and the Blue Tooth works great...Now on to test the other stuff, including the external TF card without DirectoryBind.

Cheers,
BuBu
