Note: You should have USB drivers installed on computer of respective device you are connecting to. In case of Sony Ericsson, just install PC companion. I tested this software on Windows 7 x86 on Samsung Galaxy S i9000 running on Android 2.3.5 XXJVS.

Did you forget droidexplorer ??
Do it with GUI 🙂

    Droidexplorer will need SDK installed and configured. While this one is small in size and requires just a double click 🙂
    Using Droidexplorer for such a small task will be its under utilization. right?

Installing via run_sys.bat isn’t recommended ! be careful….

    The App to sd feature works properly on CynogenMod( have to install script in case of cooper kang version) and stock based custom Roms( script is generally pre installed) after installing the script. I tried the Script on 2.3.5 but it didnt work.
