    Can someone help me set up App2ext, or something similar? The one that gives you like a gigabyte of free internal storage? I'm not very good with this stuff. xD

    Please, and thank you.

    The easiest way is to backup your SD card to your computer, format SD, partition SD, move SD contents back from PC to your SD, download link2sd, chose your ext, reboot, go to multi select, select all, create link

    Is this what makes the Internal Storage go over 200MBs depending on my EXT size? And what's the deal with EXT2,3, and 4? What's the difference?

    Partitioning through cwm or ihocwm recoveries automatically do ext.3. Ext 1 is the oldest format ext4 is the newest. You will have to Google what the exact differences are. Ext3 works just fine. If you have the 2gb card go with 512mb partition, if you have 4gb or larger do a 1024mb. Don't worry about swap size

    If you have a computer running Linux, or Linux live CD, you can use that, mount your SD card, then use G-Parted to partition the SD card. It's much easier than using recovery.

    How is it easier than recovery? You just hit a couple buttons and boom, you have a partitioned SD. I use gparted, but I have it on a Linux thumb drive, its alot easier and faster through recovery

    I'm addressing the question of a user named "CuriousNoob" so I thought I might suggest a method that has a GUI, as the recovery interface can be daunting to those without experience. If they are comfortable with partitioning through recovery, then by all means, it's certainly the quicker method. But it's always nice to have multiple options as well.

    When you open link2sd go to storage space, it will show internal, SD card. Sd card second part. All your apps you have you can "link" which will load the full app to the SD card second part. Instead of internal space. I would stick with link2sd, it has a simple ui, and does the same thing as the other *.*2exts.

    Follow the directions here it takes another 10-15 minutes when installing your rom. Most of it is boot times. I do this everytime a new rom is released. There is a bug that will not let you just update the romm but a fresh install is IMO better.

    You don't have to fresh install every Tim, you just have to recreate mount scripts everytime you update

    I'm curious, how do you recreate mount scripts? I recently tried to update to the newest backside ROM, but wasn't sure how to reestablish app links. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!

    With link2sd you get a notification in the notification bar that tells you to recreate mount scripts, you just tap it and reboot. Its really simple and quick

    You can update. I have never been able to just install over the current version. I end up having to reformat and do a fresh install. I like that method better personally.


    pbailey212 says I should be able to just by recreating the scripts. I guess I will try that next time Jerry puts a update out.

    Maybe not for you. But for me its no more trouble then just updating.
