    Default SD Cards and App memory

    my previous phone used an SD card. Many of my apps still reference mnt/sdcard. How does the OG deal with such situations? Is there such thing as the Ap2sd functionality?

    It'll depend on what optimus g you're using I guess. The sprint one doesnt have a as card while the att one does.

    Default Re: SD Cards and App memory

    The non-app memory appears to be mounted as /sdcard/. which is where all of the data seems to be stored. When I look at the app memory usage, it doesn't differentiate and shows a large amount of space free, so I am guessing that the OS automatically uses the /sdcard/ location if available for anything that can be stored there... and therefore no need for the app, especially since there is no external SD card.

    Things seem to have changed for Android with the advent of devices with larger internal storage, as my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 does use external SD cards, which many apps don't seem able to access, since it is mounted as something like /extsdcard/ but this may be vendor related and not Android in general.

    I believe if an app needs the external sd it's emulated so it will make the app think their is one when their is not. But I love the way Google changed the partitions they just give you a big lump for your apps pics etc rather than having a hard ceiling on app storage

    Format your external sd card into two fat 32 partitions. Mine is currently 50 Gb and 9 Gb. The 9 Gb one will be used for link2sd which works perfectly on the LGOG.

    Also, if you need more space hit up my thread on XDA. It's a script that allows game data downloaded from the Google play store to be read from the external sd card.

    Both work independently or together. Both require root.
