I know medyo marami sa atin na mga android users ang nagrereklamo na nakakain ng mga apps at mga games natin ang ating internal memory at naghahanap tayo ng solusyon kung panu natin mapanatili na malaki ang memory ng atin phone..well ito na ang sagot sa problema natin lalo na sa mga android phones na mababa or maliit lang ang internal storage..this tutorial is how to link2sd for your android phones.. @mods please pakidelete nalang po if repost :D

WARNING: SUNDAN LANG NG MABUTI ANG AKING MUNTING TUTORIAL PARA DI KAYO MALIGAW..ANO MANG BAD ERRORS OR SIDE EFFECTS ANG MANGYAYARI SA PHONE NYO AY WAG NYO AKONG SISISHIN.. TESTED KO NA PO ITO KAYA KO BINABAHAGI SA INYO :)

introduction:
Link2SD is an android application by Bulent Akpinar that lets you move apps and games to the 2nd partition of your SD card. Why do we have to use Link2SD when Froyo and Gingerbread’s Native Apps2sd moves the files to the SD card? Native apps2sd only moves the apk file of the application leaving other files in internal memory thus you still have to manage your on-board memory and limit your choice of apps because it will eat up your memory and later on you cannot install any files anymore. Additionally, widgets and some applications are not intended to be moved to the SD card. However, Link2SD is only for root users because it is required that your phone is rooted.

The idea behind the application is the same. But Link2SD has more relevant features which the Native Apps2sd lacked giving Android 1.5 and up users the chance to have a taste of what it’s like to have a big phone memory. Additional features were added by the developer to furher optimize the usage of android devices. By using Link2SD, you can move not only the application file, but also the dalvic-cache and libray files of the application. This means that data will be the only one left to consume your internal memory thus installing applications and games would be easier because you can install anything you want without worrying about the famous low memory problem. Furthermore, Link2sd covers all files even moving widgets and the unmoveable applications to the 2nd partition of your SD card.

Ito po ay step by step guide on how you can run Link2SD on your device. This tutorial will work for both stock and cutom ROMs. For ClockWorkMod Recovery users, you can check the other guide below. Follow all the instructions carefully to eliminate possible problems.

1.First you have to download Mini Tool Partition Wizard Manager. You can download it You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now..

2.Insert your SD card to a card reader and open it on your computer.

3.Back up all your files to the computer because partitioning will wipe your data.

4.Open Mini Tool in your computer. Locate your SD card (be careful in choosing and make sure not to choose the drive of your computer)

6.Right click on it again and choose Create New. Create “FAT32″ partition (This is where all your media files will go. Be sure to make it bigger than the 2nd part)
7.Select “Create as: PRIMARY”

8.Next, create an ext2/ext3/ext4 partition (if you’re on stock ROM, choose ext2). This is where your apps will go. I suggest a value of 512Mb or 1Gb would be big enough but if you insist you can go as high as 2Gb.

9.Select “Create As: PRIMARY” (make sure that it is both set to primary because it will not work if it is not set to primary)

10.Click the “Apply” button on the top left corner and wait for it to finish the process. Done.
TAKE NOTE KELANGAN FAT32 AT EXT2 LANG ANG MATITIRA HA..OR ELSE DI GAGANA ANG TRICK NA ITO..SA MGA ANDROID 4.0 UP DAPAT DALAWANG FAT32 ANG GAWIN NYO WALA NA PONG EXT2..

11.Put back your SD card to your phone and switch it on.

12.Download and install Link2sd from Google Play Store.

13.Open Link2sd. You will be prompted to choose between ext2, ext3, ext4 and FAT32. Select ext2.

15.Open link2sd and if the message doesn’t show up, you succeded.

16.Go to Link2sd>Settings>check the autolink (to automatically move apps upon installation)

17.If you already have some apps, select “move to phone” then after moving select “Create Link” (be sure to check the three files: app, dalvic-cache and library files)

18.
