Well, if you're not even going to bother visiting XDA Developers and searching for your device there, I'd say your best bet is to stick to the non-root method. In order to get the most benefit out of rooting and hacking your device, you will need to get your hands dirty and learn some stuff. But of course it's not for everyone.
It's also difficult to provide precise instructions for a specific device unless you actually have the device yourself, because although it's the same Linux kernel and same Android OS, each manufacturer skins and modifies them accordingly for each phone. But there should be a Settings > Apps > On SD Card menu on the L9, or something roughly along those lines.
i go to settings and then apps then it shows all my apps, the running ones and my downloaded ones and thats it. i do not see a on SD Card setting.
