In the last version of google play and beta version this file doesnt exists:

/data/data/com.spotify.mobile.android.ui/./shared_prefs/spotify_preferences.xml

 

:/

 

I use DirectoryBind tweak

I use "Root Explorer (File Manager)" on Android.

 

Navigate to /data/data/com.spotify.mobile.android.ui/./shared_prefs/

 

hold on spotify_preferences.xml and use the Text Editor.

 

Other File Exlorer didn't show the Path \data\data\

Now, with a explorer with root permisions and with adb shell:

 

root@XXXX:/data/data/com.spotify.mobile.android.ui # ls -la
drwxrwx--x app_141  app_141           2012-07-07 02:18 cache
drwxrwx--x app_141  app_141           2012-07-09 15:44 databases

drwxr-xr-x system   system            2012-07-07 02:16 lib

Has anyone just tried to move the app to the SD Card?  Can you move the app to the External SD Card?

Has anyone tried putting something in the init.d

 

so this is what I did.  I made a folder on my /mnt/extSdCard called Spotify

 

in a terminal session.. not sure if you can do this if you are not ROOTed but.. 

 

mount -o bind /mnt/extSdCard/Spotify /sdcard/Android/data/com.spotify.mobile.ui 

 

this tricked it into thinking that the local SD card where all the files get stored get pushed onto the External SD.

 

kind of a stupid trick.. and I don't know enough about android to add that to the init.d "yet"  but i am working on it. 

 

i think it's the init.d anyways.. good luck.. this seems to work
