Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Battery Drained Suddenly After Installing Updates

I have been getting pretty great battery life with the extended battery. About 15 hrs use a day with moderate use. But, on thursday i got a notification from the market saying i had a few updates, so i selected install. Friday morning i unplug my phone at 0510, by 0527 i had drained the battery down to 78%. And all i did was unplug it and put it in my pocket and drive to work. Once i got off work i installed the battery and it was dead about 5 hrs later with not even hardly being used. I looked at the battery usage and it was all android os, cell stand by and screen usage.

I cant figure out whats going on with this thing? I think one of the updates i installed might have had an issue. But i cant remember which apps i updated. Does anyone know what else i can do find out what the issue is?

Samsung Fascinate - How To Tell If Apps Are Saved On Sd Card Or On Internal Drive

I know these questions are really elementary, but:

1. In my task manager, it shows for ram 214 mb/325mb. Why is so much memory already used when i have so little extra on the phone? Does the pre-loaded stuff and os take up that much space?Confession: i have only downloaded 4 apps so far (google maps, handcent, swiftkey, smart keyboard pro) and 1 widget (digital clock widget) plus i have 4 ringtones and 1 song. Obviously, i am not a superuser.

2. How can i tell if my apps are saved on my sd card or on my internal drive?

3. If on my internal drive, how do i move them to the sd card?

Problem: Samsung Galaxy S2 Did Not Recognize The Sim Card

One morning, my galaxy s2 (bought september, 2011, not rooted, locked to a carrier) refused to come back from airplane mode. Once restarted, it did come back, but it did not recognize the sim card any more. I removed the sim card, tried it in another device, it worked. Tried inserting a different sim to the s2, it did not recognize it version: 2. 3. 4, there is no newer version from the carrier, and i can't upgrade via kies. Browsing through the forums, i've found this to be an uncommon, but already encountered problem. Suggested solutions: factory reset, firmware upgrade, etc. Note that i've removed and cleaned the sim and the phone various times, removed the battery for 30 mins, etc.

Factory reset: when i try to reset my device, it asks for a samsung account password, something i don't remember, i don't really use it. I asked them to e-mail it to me (twice), a day has passed since and no email. I can't use any samsung app on the phone, because of the "missing" sim, i suppose that is why i don't receive a new password either. Is there a workaround? Is it possible that i can't reset my phone without a sim?

Ok, no resetting, how about upgrading? Kies installed, but my device is not recognised. It is just "connecting. " Indefinitely (yesterday i cooked an entire dinner while it was connecting. ). I know it is a regular problem, i have read and tried many solutions (including the usb debug ones), but no. I can access the phone via windows, it charges through usb, but no kies (i miss the backup for contacts, messages).

A possibility is to upgrade firmware via odin, but i'm hesitant to try it while i have no way back (no factory reset). Any advice before taking it back to the shop for repairs (i have some bad experience with them)?

Killi Process With Files On Sd Card

I found that android kills my app process that has files open on sd card when the card is mounted when the device connects to a computer. It is done without any notification, i see in the log something like killprocesswithfilesopenedoncard message, my app receives no notification, has no chance to gracefully shutdown. Moreover android restarts my app immediately after killing it with latest activity not the default activity launched in default standard mode. It does it while the card is still mounted and device is still connected to a computer.

Can someone explain this all to me, how it i supposed to work, and if there is any way to alter this weird rude behavior? Particularly, if there is way to get any notification before the process is killed by the os and to prevent relaunching it while the card is still mounted?

User Comment: Anker Astro 5600mah External Battery For Galaxy Nexus

I carried stock battery to replace extended battery when it gets low, and got sick of removing case, then back cover each time. And those external batteries were kinda too big to carry until i found this one. 5600mah is almost good enough to recharge gnex battery 3 times, plus it has all kind of recharging tips so i could use it to recharge my bluetooth headset, fiio, and speaker. So i only need to recharge anker at home.

Ringtones Saved From Audio Files In Sd Card Disappear After Reboot

I'm having a problem creating ringtones from files saved to the sd card. I have succeeded in getting the information to be written to the mediastore database, and the files do show up in settings -> sound & display -> phone ringtone. However, as soon as i reboot the phone, the files disappear from the list of ringtones.

The only clue i have is that the database in /data/data/ Providers. Media/databases/external-. Db is getting its rows deleted on startup. The files themselves are not changing. Even stranger is that, if i simply copy the file from the sd card to the files/ directory of the internal storage directory for my app, and then save that file as the ringtone, it works!  However, it doesn't really seem feasible to me to force the user to keep two copies of the audio file.

I do have a . Nomedia file in the audio files directory (to avoid the files showing up in the music app), but i have tested this with and without the . Nomedia file and the same problem occurs.

Below is my code for creating the ringtone/notification. The users of my app would be really grateful if i figured this out.

What Apps Do I Install On My New Samsung Galaxy Nexus ?

I already got help here with my first post, so here goes number 2. I ordered a new unlocked gangland nexus. It is replacing my iphone 4. I found out i had to swap out the sim card and i should be up and running. Ok, what do i do next? This is my first droid phone. I have read how to export my contacts to gmail and that will transfer them over to my new phone. I don't want my calender entries, i hope i can do that directly form outlook.

So what do i install? I know the standards apps, but what else should i do to my phone. Root it? I already know that i have to make sure that it has something with a bunch of letters in it to make sure i get updates. Is there a tutorial or a great post that someone can steer me too.
