Android: Low internal Memory Solution by cj1080(m): 1:17am On Sep 29, 2012
Once again gentlemen, I come bearing gifts

We all have experienced the low memory issue that comes from our sheer download and usage of Various android apps and

games, that some times we find ourselves uninstalling and installing apps so that we can free up space.

Now gentlemen jump with joy because as Avast says" Avast me hearties, you ship of dangerous seadogs be safely in your sd."

This works for Android phones and tablets running Android 1.6 to 2.3 and higher as in froyo to icecreamsandwitch.

So without further adue, lets get started

For Foyo or Gingerbeard OS.

1. Make sure your Android devices is rooted
I can't stress this any louder- if you want to root your devices google how to root your device.

2.YOUR PHONE MUST BE ROOTED!!!!!! Stressing this again.

3. You must have superuser installed and active.

4. You need a partition creator app.
This is an app that can create partitions on your SD card via your droid phone or tablet.
Do a google play search for partition creator or just download paragon partition creator.

5.You need to create two partitions on your SD card and you will make those partitions your primary partitions.
Some phones have the ability to create partitions on your Sd and name them ext,ext01. use you root explore to check your

root folder for mnt(mount) folder. If its there and it shows folders in your phone memory as against your SD. then you will

need to create the partition on your SD through a partition creator.

6. Once the partitions have been created(beginning to sound more like windows now).

7.Look for link2sd on googleplay and download and install it.
This app is like your basic app2sd but better and with more funcions. Fountions that enable you move even your systems app

to SD.

8.Once installed, open Link2sd it will show you all the apps installed on your system including all your system apps.

before it opens Superuser will ask that you allow or deny the app access. click allow.

9.Now for the hard part. You will need to select the apps you want to move to the partitions you created on your SD card.

This you can do by tapping the app. Once you select or tap an app on limk to sd, scrol down til you see twwo buttons "Move

to SD' or "Actions" if an app shws only actions button, tap the action button.

10. Once you tap the action button it will give you the option to convert that app to a system or user app.

11.Convert the app to a user app and go to your applications option in your settings. you will see hat now you can move the

app to sd. if the option is not there, use link2sd to move the app to sd.


For gingerbread and higher.

1. You may or may not need a partition depending on your phone

2.Open link2sd. and select those standard apps that came with the phone. e.g facebook,twitter,googleplay,gmail,google

maps,youtube. and convert them to user apps and move them to your SD.


Thats all folks.

Enjoy more space on your phone and less worry of space issues.

p.s when creating the partitions on your sd, use 100-200mb for partition space just to be on the safe side so as not to

worry over it getting full.

For any details shot me a viber call on 0023430967.

Adding my own two bits.

Do not convert any of your core system apps to user apps. Apps like contacts.apk or camera.apk and move them to sd.

You can covnvert these apps. but most likely your phone or tablet will give u errors when u remove your sd card.

Big thanks Cj1080

To add more details. U can also search and download "Root All 2 SD" to do this because not all files can be moved to SD eg Lib files, Data and cache still remains in fone memory. This app will partition a section of ur SDcard and clone it as fone internal memory.

people there is a big difference between move2SD and link2SD.

move to SD only moves your installed apps. while link2SD. enables u to create a partition on your memory card and use it as ur phones internal memory. there by freeing up usage of your phone internal memory.

meaning more ram to work with. more multitasking.

it also provides move2SD features. but it's far much more better than app to as it move to sd which just saves the app to as but does not save the apps data or libs.

link2sd saves all files of the apps u install to sd. Please freeing up space for u for your phone or Tab to work it.

plus it allows the option for you to convert system apps to user apps. them link them to SD.

To use it first create a partition of any size on ur SD. using fat32 to create the partition,then select it with link2SD.

once done. that partition becomes your phones internal memory. e. g I created a 2gb partition that now subs as my phone memory. So now I can install more apps. and play more games.
