Does any one know how to move apps to sd card with out rooting the Note 2
First you'll need root. There are methods that involve Odin, but I didn't want to risk changing my flash count or go to that much hassle. I recommend Chainfire's method that uses the ExynosAbuse exploit by alephzain. It is extremely easy and doesn't even require a computer. Here's a link. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2050297
Second, use the app "Directory Bind." Grab the app here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410262
To learn how to use the app, this guide helped me: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1889550
This method takes a little work but it is fairly easy and is way better than having a crippled device. Plus having root access is nice anyway. If these sources don't help I'd be glad to answer any questions about my experience with this method. Worked perfect for me - all I had to do was move a few big games in the Android/obb/ folder (not the whole obb folder as shown in the above guide) and I had 5 gigs of free space.
Thanks for the reply ropp29, but I'm not to sure about how rooting works.Do you still use the Jelly Bean OS as normal or does it change everything.Also can you update it when a newer OS comes out,and can you unroot it if you need to take it in to Us Cellular for repair work.
One last question,is your phone with Us Cellular and have you had any problems with your camera after rooting your phone.I did not see Us Cellular phone model in the compatible root list.
Is the patch ExynosAbuse-v1.40.apk.You said the camera had issues with .apk,and how do you only use it's root feature.Sorry for all the question's just want to be right before patching a $800 phone.
Edit: One more thing, you asked if it interferes with OTA updates. It does, but only in a sense. While it is rooted updates will not work, but all you have to do is open the ExynosAbuse app and unroot it temporarily (super super easy, just one click) so you can download the latest update and it works fine. The only difference is that you will have to check this or another website to find out when updates become available as the update service on the phone will not work until you unroot.
