    There is a new way to save the new/maps to SD card.....

    All credit goes to the "Root Tool" application developer Amol baikar AKA djamol

    Here we go...

    1, Install "Root Tool" from here... https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/s...b-fec50195aa1e
    2, Move it to SD card.
    3, Put the SD card in the memory card reader and go to WPsystem folder
    4,Delete the following two files from the installation path.. sdcard\wpsystem\apps\f4acc009-ea1e-4063-9bab-fec50195aa1e> install\ mdilfilelist.xml and wmappmanifest.xml
    5, Move all the files under folder HACK to installation path.. sdcard\wpsystem\apps\f4acc009-ea1e-4063-9bab-fec50195aa1e> install
    6, Move the app back to phone memory.
    7, Run the Root Tool app
    8, Open Lumia Registry Editor
    9, Selcet HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    10, Select DWORD
    9, In the path type System\maps\storage
    10, In the Key type UseExtendedStorage
    11, Press Read
    12, it will show 00000000 in the value field
    13, Change the value to 00000001
    14, Press Write
    15, In the Key field type UseSmallerCache
    16, Press Read ensure it reads as 00000000 if not change it to 00000000 and press Write
    17, In the Key field type ExternalStorageOverride
    18, Press Read. ensure it reads as 00000001 if not change it to 00000001 and press Write
    19, Go tot the maps and download a new map.
    20, Go to Storage Sense and select SD Card
    21, Maps session should show the maps size you have just downloaded.

    I have successfully done this in my Lumia 830 running WP8.1 Update 2 (OS version 8.10.15137.148 Firmware Version 02040.00021.15063.02002)

    I have mentioned these tips some where else in other forum as well.
    Posting it here for the benefit of all who need it.

    And I got a doubt. If I download 1 Gb map data to sd card and later reset my phone. Is the map data already stored in my sd card reusable or should I download again ?

    The maps that are downloaded to SD card are reusable.
    After the hard reset, just follow the process up from #1 to #18 and then go to Storage sense> SD Card>Maps> Manage> check for update.
    It will download 1MB of data and you are done.

    I have a Lumia 820, OS version 8.10.14234.375, Firmware 3051.50009.1451.1002 and tried the tool. I proceeded according to the tutorial but maps are not save to SD-card, only to phone memory. So the tool doesn't work for me.

    Have u tried reading the key Useextendedstorage. Is this key value 00000001
    07-03-2015 12:46 PM
  7. malvo26's Avatar
    Yes, in Useextendedstorage the value is 00000001. I guess the OS version 8.10.15137.148 (GDR2) is necessary for this to work. I'll install GDR2 first to see if it works.

    I installed GDR2 and have OS version 8.10.15137.148 and followed the instructions completely with the key values as indicated but no dice. Even after soft resetting it doesnt download maps to SD card.

    Have you checked if your sd card has a folder MapData.

    sd card does not have a folder MapData. I created the folder on the sd card and downloaded a map but it still goes to phone memory.

    I haven't tried it yet. My guess is it wont work as the downloaded maps has a unique id (unique_id.txt).

    Strange - I tried it in my L820 and it ca not even read the value.
    OS 8.10.15116.125
    FW 3051.50009.1451.1002

    But its working flawlessly in L830.

    If a simple tool is available, we don't need to spend so much precious time and energy. Hope you are up to date yourself.

    Tried it in Lumia 435 and it is working
    OS 8.10.15116.125
    FW 0206000000.015056.21002

    I may try this in L1520 and update in a while.
    07-05-2015 12:09 AM
  21. binnyandrews's Avatar
    Yes it is working on my L1520 as well.

    OS 8.1015137.148
    FW 02540.00019.15053.26003

    Anyone else who has L1520, L435, L830 can check and confirm if this is working for them as well.
    Also, anyone else apart from malvo26, can check and confirm on L820. In my L820, it even can not read the values but malvo26 can read and write.

    @ malvo26, can you check this way and let know pls...

    Uninstall Root Tool
    Put the SD in card reader and DELETE ALL the contents of WPSystem - or even FORMAT the SD card.
    Install Root Tool to phone (do not run the app) move it to SD and delete those two xml files and CUT and paste the HACK folder contents to the install folder.
    Move the app back to phone and run and see if it works.

    @ malvo26, I just tried it once again in L820 and it works. Mistake in my earlier try was - unable to read from the 3 registry keys due to it was not created. Created those keys and its working now.
    Good luck to all those who wants to keeps maps in their SD.
    Will have a watch on this thread for those who seek help.

    I give up. I tried many ways and it doesn't work for me. I tried the "try version". Or does only the paid version work?

    I am also using trial version.

    That seems like a great solution to the problem of moving maps to the sd card. Does anybody know if a video guide has been created for those of us that are a little inept at this type of thing?
