Due to by 16 GB (13,7 GB net) is very low space. It would be usefull i we can change the android storage to sdcard.

Implement as option generall to android support or additional to the apps settings.

Edit: relocation of SfOS Apps could be also usefull

Edit by @raketti

Since the SD-card issues regarding native apps is alredy discussed here and there is a request about Android apps using the SD-card here, there's no use of modifying this topic or keep it open.

Please direct your wishes/comments/etc. to those topics.

Nice request but a little unrealistic at the moment, as it requires some tweaks on the sailfish os and only sdcards running linux file system to achieve. I have my android and entire home partitions mounted on my sdcard with the help of a tutorial. you are better served using those to achieve your goal at the moment.

@DameCENO could you provide a link to the tutorial?

IMO: Workarount is nice, but out of the box is better

@evo3de here it is again


We all know it would be the best fit to have it out of the box, but how realistic do you think such a request is for now? they obviously have other issues to concentrate on at the moment, so we make do with what we have.

Have you seen this https://together.jolla.com/question/40802/how-to-format-your-usd-card-to-btrfs-and-share-space-with-android/ ? If you do that, the Android data and cache will be on the SD card.

@DameCENO it doesn´t matter how realistic it is to be done now. It´s a feature request that can be done sometime

Reopen, because it depents also on native apps. So it´s not a duplicate request

Maybe this should be a separate request just for SFOS apps then?

90% of your request is about Android apps, you added a line at the end for native apps, and we talk about that here. As you want, I won't close it again, but I think it gives more visibility to regroup the votes on a single post.

@Sthocs - you are absolutely right. This topic should be closed and merged to the old ones to keep the TJC clean and productive. If you won't close this - I shall. :)
