    Well I don't know if it's just me and my phone or if it's happening to others, Every time I re-boot google maps would be gone, nada, gone. So after 2 or 3 times of re-downloading it I moved it to the phone. And that fixed it. Anyone else have this happen? Maybe it hates the pictures on my sd card.

    Hey what do you mean by "from /system/bin (invoking sh for shell)"? I tried "sh pm setInstallLocation 2" and it says "sh: cannot open 'pm'".
    It means from the directory /system/bin, meaning that they did a cd to /system/bin before running that command. That shouldn't be necessary - you should be able to just type "pm setInstallLocation 2"

    Make sure that the ONLY capital letters there are the I and the L.

    That worked for me!! Thanx Alll

    thx- BUD
    Read the OP!

    Geesh

    don't need to be partitioned
    heres the orignal topic:

    go to terminal emulator and enter
    su (enter)
    pm setInstallLocation 2 (enter)
    It will do nothing just exit.
    U can now move most apps to sd card under settings.manage apps. Move to sd card!
    May be issues like widget doesn't load. So try it and discuss!
    Must be running froyo, must be rooted, follow command exactly.
    Update*
    After playing with it for a few hours I suggest only changing apps that are standalone such as games.
    Leave the home replacements, active task killers, widgets or anything running in the backround.
    After a reboot it may look like ur apps are gone. Just give them time to load from the sd card.


    I wanted to know if this was the only way to get a2sd. I don't see him saying "this is the only method to get a2sd" anywhere in his post. GEEESH!

    It worked on most applications. Unfortunately on some of my big ones like Home Run Derby 3D it didn't. Oh well, at least I can move some other applications around. Thanks!

    And one word before I leave. Be nice to each other. Respect is number 1 in the Droid Forums. Thank you.

    Wishing there was a "move all to sdcard" option. Do I really have to go through all my apps and move them one at a time?
    Thanks! This worked for me!

    is anyone having problems with ADB in 2.2? I can't get ADB REMOUNT to work in CMD. The only way I can get ADB REMOUNT to work (for pulling/pushing apk) is to boot into recovery and turn on "mount /system". Any help?

    Is there a way to increase the size of the partition on my SD card without having to re-format it? Now that I've been using app2sd, I've moved so much that my partition is almost full. I thought I had set it up for 512 MB but I only had it at 256 so I would like to increase it. I am hoping there is an easier way but I'm thinking I'm SOL.

    First things first. Try just entering super user mode in the terminal and then type pm setInstallLocation 2 and see if that works. If not then you have to type the following in the terminal:

    su (press enter)
    cd /system/bin (press enter)
    then sh pm setInstallLocation 2 (press enter)
    This is just what I needed! I kept getting the "sh: cannot open pm" also and was wondering what I was doing wrong.

    Thanks!

    So you are running a non-stock /system/bin/sh, then? Maybe it's included in your rom?

    I use busybox ash as my shell and have the same problem. I edited the /system/bin/pm file to include "#!/system/bin/sh" and now I can run it by just typing pm. Same with /system/bin/am.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    I re-installed Home Run Battle 3d and it went on the sdcard! I know, you lose your scores, but it's such a big app!
