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.

On Qualcomm’s Damage Control: Marketing and Rumors?

The Heated Snapdragon chronicles seemingly see no end, and 5 months into 2015 we are still discussing the Snapdragon 810. This is unfortunate, because it is rather clear that the market is moving away from it, and it’d be better to simply forget about this black stain once and for all. However, many websites can’t let it go - and in some ways, we are one of them - but only in response to claims that we think affect consumers...

Project Fi Invites Are Rolling Out

Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well.   What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
