    app storage on zte merit

    Is there a way to save apps to the micro SD card so that you can hold more apps?

    Link2SD is one of the free apps that will do it.

    I use App2SD. This moves apps to the SD card. It is free.

    Gemini App Manager evaluates each application as it installs and tells you whether it can be moved to external storage.

    I have App2SD installed on my Merit and I'm still being told certain apps cannot move apps to SD card. For the example, the Weather Channel app and Facebook app. Why is that ?

    Each runs in the background once you open it. If you change SD cards, the application would not have access to its data. You should check the permissions of the applications to see whether they can modify the contents of external storage devices.

    Widgets can't be run from the SD card. That's an Android thing.

    With some ROMs, though, some of the SD card can act as "internal" memory (it's like the old use of hard drive space as "virtual RAM"), so you can get a few GB of "internal" memory. That means flashing a new ROM, though, which many people are afraid to do.

    Widgets CAN be run from the SD card when linked with Link2SD (requires root).
    I have all my user apps linked to the second partition on the SD card, with the exception of the Link2SD app itself, which can't be moved.
    A few of them are widgets and they all work perfectly.

    Moving apps to sd card

    I have the app2sd app installed and have moved everything I could. Is there another way to get some of the other apps moved?

    I am interested in this phone and have a question, rooting a phone sounds complicated to me , couldn't I just install the apps to the sd card or is rooting the only way to do that?

    From what I am learning rooting is the only way. i have tried everything else and have been unsuccessful. I have not rooted yet. However I came across a site that will root the phone for you with their software downloaded to your phone, but it costs money around $30. I dont know how reliable that can be or if our ST droids is compatible with the software.

    My google searches for the merit indicate that rooting for the merit can't be done, yet it looks like some here have done it. Are the Straight talk / Net 10/ Att merit all different so that some are easier to root? I know nothing about rooting . How can it be done on the Straight talk/ NEt10 merit?

    Thanks again

    It can be done, but it's not as easy as some other phones. See http://androidforums.com/avail-all-t...rom-links.html
