Regarding downloading applications, how can I set the default location to be the USB Storage ( which has a capacity of 11GB) instead of the phone memory (which has a capacity of 2GB only) ?!

You really don't need to do that. Keep the internal memory as the default.
You're not gonna be able to fill the 2 GBs anyways, large applications or games put their resources on the SD Card, so you won't be able to fill your 2 GBs even if you wanted to.

Some apps won't run properly from the SD card or will run slowly. I use Gemini App Manager from the market. I've found it's able to move apps to SD that APP2SD can't seem to move. I think it works better if you're rooted, but it's not required to use the app. Might be worth a try.

So, so both of you guys do not recommend setting the SD card as the default location !
To what extent can we consider applications or games as big-sized ones ?!

I remember downloading Nova with about 200 MB+ of data, the Apk who was installed on the internal memory was nothing more than a few 10s of MBs, while the rest of the data was on the SD Card. Meaning that when you connect your phone to a computer, you can see the files on your memory card.


Moving Apps to SD was made for phones with relatively small internal memory. For example the HTC Desire has 512 MBs of internal memory, which already has a lot of HTC Apps, and the user is left with less than 200 MBs for the apps of his choice.

Samsung did a great job in the domain, having 2 GBs of internal memory is so far more than enough. Knowing that it comes empty for the user to use.

Thanks a lot, dude .. Finally, someone convinced me that I'm not in need for rooting or switching the default location for downloading apps !

Anybody can help ?!!
My Samsung Galaxy S2 came with a 4.0.3 Android version (Ice Cream Sandwich) .. Although it's the newest version, but I feel that it's not compatible with my phone ! It causes many problems such as force closes on FB application, Whatsapp, turns off suddenly, etc .. In many occasions, I had a black screen while being in a certain application then getting a message of "This application is not responding" , then goes out of it !

I know many people who got the S2, but none of them had it with the 4.0.3 version .. All of them had it with the Gingerbread
version which seemed to be very stable and lovely ! Every one got surprised when I told him that I'm having such problems, knowing that I got my new phone since 2 weeks only !!

Moreover, when I go to "About Phone" feature, then to Android Version, Baseband version & Kernel version and these stuff .. they are all "off" and not
enlightened as the situation is in the Gingerbread version !!

What's the real problem ? Is my phone rooted or what ? Please Help !

Your phone is rooted and a custom rom is installed , is it new or used? if its new go back and rape the guy's face and demand your money back , if its used you can search online for a default rom and flash it

Learn how to use Odin, download the latest Android 4.0 for your phone from that website. And flash it, your phone will have a fresh new system.


You will loose all your system data, from contacts to sms. So backup before you do that.

Well you can say that Flashing is a kind of installing a new system.
In Odin's case, it will format your system and your data [apps, not sd-card data], and it will install a new system which will make your phone look like new.

I know you already have 4.0, but this is how to fix your problem in the easiest possible way. Plus you will make sure that you have an official, Samsung system for your phone.
