Hi

This is not a phone thread, so please read on. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and trying to free up memory on my Android HTC Desire and came upon an article that looked promising (see below). I successfully completed items 1 through 3, but I cannot for the life of me navigate to the Android-SDK/tools folder, saved in C: Program files (x86) via the command prompt. Every time I type in the path I get an error mesage saying 'Program is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.....'

I have no doubt I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure out what it might be. Is the folder in an inaccessible directory? If so, where do I have to move it to get into it..

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide

:(


You might think this is impossible. But, it seems nothing impossible when it comes to the Android‘s innovation. You can install as many as applications you want to your SD card on Android Froyo powered phones. It might be rare to see on the other phones with different platforms.

Here is the instruction you should do.

1. Enable USB debugging on your device by clicking on Setting > Applications > Development > USB debugging.

2. Download and install the Android SDK. If you have no idea where to visit, you should go to http://developer.android.com/sdk/

3. Connect your phone to computer.

4. Run a command prompt and navigate to the Android-SDK\tools folder.

5. In the folder you can type adb devices and get the serial number starting with “H” in return.

6. Enter adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2.

7. Enter adb shell pm setInstallLocation 0 if you need to switch back to storing software o[/B][/B]n your internal memory.

Try this

cd "Program Files (x86)"

You have to use quotes since the folder name contains spaces.
