    Its being a little annoy that there is no option to do that easyily 🙁 like DoodleA111 has 🙁

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Follow: Settings–>Apps–>chose the app and there would be an option to move the app to SD card. If there doesn’t come any option on the page then your device doesn’t support transfer of apps to external SD card. If you still would want to move apps to SD card then you would have to root your device first.

      Hi Hari,
      Did reboot solves this systemui error for a while? This is a temporary solution. There isn’t any specific date about the availability of the Lollipop update. You can also try hard resetting your device but make sure you take a proper backup first.
