AAKASH/UBISLATE 7C+Yes4.0.4DATAWINDEXCELLENT CONTRIBUTION. BUT FOR USB DRIVERS I HAD TO USE MOTOROLA'S DRIVERS THEN ONLY THE SHIFTING WAS POSSIBLE AS SUCH THERE IS NOT SUPPORT FROM DATAWIND AT ANY LEVEL UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE TO QUOTE THIS SO THAT END USERS WILL BE MORE CAREFUL AND WILL NOT SPEND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS IN DOING TRIALS AND RESEARCH ELSE AT THIS PRICE IT IS AN EXCELLENT TAB

Alcaltel OT 916Yes2.3.6movistarMéxicoThis model has a ridiculous small free space for apps (150 MB) and are almost 120MB used by system and bloatware.

Alcatel 918DYes4.2.2 (4.17)NetherlandsI could move some apps which didn't want to move before, but still the built-in apps don't move (Facebook, Youtube etc.). Is it any way to get rid of them, even by removing? Internal memory is ridiculous: about 200 MB...

alcatel one touch 918DYes2.3.5vodafonenetherlandsMy PC has Vista as OS. I didn't need "USB driver for Windows", maybe because I use Alcatel Android Manager. In the cmd-box I got a $ as prompt instead of a #.

It only made about 10MB of difference but because Whats App moved all the data can be saved there.
Also I was having problems downloading new apps even if i could store them on SD, by doing step 11 it saved me.

HTC ChaChaYes2.3.5SingtelSingaporeDidn't work at first - type ./adb devices instead of adb devices if using Terminal on MacFor Mac, just type 'cd' and drag the folder containing adb into Terminal rather than manually typing the path in (in case there are any total noobs like me out there). Also, for my phone, 'pm setInstallLocation 2' rather than 'pm setInstallLocation 0' sets the SD card as the default install location. Thanks for this tutorial!!

HTC DesireYes4.1.2TELE2SWEDENI am using an unofficial cyanogenmod V10, and it works like a charm.
Before your fix, i barely had any space for any apps, but now like 80% of the apps are installed on the memory card instead of the internal memory i can just keep trowing apps into it! :D

HTC Desire A8181Yes2.2.2Non ContractUKWorked well, though had difficulty in getting PC to recognise the phone. This was overcome by installing HTC Sync from the phone SD card onto the PC. I'd tried getting this from the HTC website but my phone was clearly too old for them to have it listed.

LP Optimus P500Yes2.3.3AirtelINDIAMy phone memory is 200 MB, which was 95% occupied before using this procedure. The apps were successfully move to SD card, making some internal memory space. Only 59 MB space was cleared, wish it have cleared in excess of 100MB resulting in increased phone speed. Nevertheless I am happy with the brilliant solution as my phone is back to normal.
Thanks a lot, waiting for more updates.
