Use a Basemap (.tpk) file on an External SD Card

I would like to use a large tile package (.tpk) base map file in Collector.  Like many, I have limited storage space on our devices.  Can anyone please explain how in Collector I can use tile packages from an external SD card location on an Android  device? 

I have seen that some claim to be able to do this, but I am unclear on some of the phone file storage and root tech jargon. 

ESRI, is this something you are planning to officially fix in an upcoming update?


Thanks in advance for any help or pointers.
