    Quick question.

    I went and installed google earth, it installed right to the SD card. (I had it off the phone because it took up to much space)

    Can others confirm apps are being installed directly to the SD card.

    I wish an option would pop up when installing.

    Also, is there a way to stop apps from installing right to the SD card?

    Is this also effective for changing to different Operating Systems, like downgrading or ugprading is it a good way to keep your apps and settings?

    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'". Any ideas on how to get this to work?

    1. Open up terminal emulator
    2. Type "su"
    3. type "pm setInstallLocation 2"

    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.
    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)

    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)

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    After some searching on the net, I found this...

    install app to sd card in 2.2 (froyo) - Android Help

    To revert back and have the install on the internal memory it looks like you enter

    pm setInstallLocation 0

    Thanks a lot man! I tried the second method and it worked like a charm! I must have a bad mapping to system commands like Boofster said. Either way, it works now so thanks a million!
