Android - Installing programs to SD card


(1) enable USB debugging
(2) connect your device to your computer

(3) in terminal :
# adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2
(new syntax : adb shell pm set-install-location 2)

# adb shell pm get-install-location
2[external]

(4) disconnect, done

This command will set the devices default installation target to your SDCard.
That doesn't necessarily mean everything gets installed there: only apps supporting this will go there

Changes the default install location. Location values:

0: Auto-Let system decide the best location.
1: Internal-install on internal device storage.
2: External-install on external media.

(Unfortunetly this method produces no effect in Samsung Galaxy Tab)
