    Enable/Disable automatic SD installations

    EDIT: This is no longer needed as of BB 0.3! Just run the included command "apps2sd"

    Like the idea of installing apps to SD but don't want bugless beast to automatically install ALL your apps to SD?

    Run these scripts to enable / disable the sd installs.

    To run:
    Code:
    su
    sysrw
    sh /sdcard/disablesdinst.txt
    The script will modify the /system/etc/install-recovery.sh startup script and make the change immediately. Reboot after running and type this to ensure that it worked:

    Code:
    pm getInstallLocation
    should return a 1

    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)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been looking for a way to disable the automatic apps2sd since I found out that pm setInstallLocation 1 did not survive a reboot. I ran the pm getInstallLocation and it returned with 1! This was one of the only issues I had with BBv0.2... thanks again!

    You need to be root and have /system mounted as read/write. I'll edit the instructions.

    Did you put the text file on the SD card in that location? Also, the file is called disablesdinst.xt. don't forget the SD in the middle.

    None of my apps were moved to SD after updating to bb 0.2. Should I be worried?

    Se7enLC, thank you for the script! I ran it and now I'll see how it goes. After playing with apps, I'm 99 & 44/100% certain that my reboot problem is due to to apps on the SD card.

    They will only move when you install something new. Everything else is fine.
