Tutorial – Install Apps into SD Card for Samsung Galaxy i5500

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy 5 and want to install applications on your SD card? XDA member r2beta0 posted a great tutorial that will guide you to the full process. The developer made some research on how to achieve the easiest way to have apps installed on SD card for Android. The best part is that there is no need to even have a custom ROM to make it work. There is no program, app or update.zip, so you must follow all instructions to get it done. Please be sure you know what are you doing before starting and please leave feedback as an important way to thank the dev for the efforts.
You need your phone to be rooted.

TUTORIAL] Install applications into SD Card for Samsung Galaxy 5 (i5500)

DISCLAIMER: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK / RUIN YOUR PHONE IN ANY WAY.

Hi Everyone,

I have some good news for the owners of Samsung Galaxy 5 (i5500) Smartphones.
Doing some research on Google and reading about efforts from other people who could install applications on SD card on other android phones, I was able to develop a method to install application into SD card for the Galaxy 5. Better yet, you won’t even need a custom Rom.

Before I get into the specifcs let me state that the following steps are manual and no application is provided to automate the process, so advanced computer skill is required and some knowledge of unix/linux is a plus.

Here we go: PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING BEFORE YOU START. I MAY HAVE OMMITED SOME COMMANDS OUT OF LACK OF ATTENTION.
1) You’ll need to root your phone. There is a lot of guides about this available, just google for it. I’ve used the SuperOneClick Root to do this.

You can find more information in the original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
