Expand Android Internal Memory with link2SD

In most of the Android phones internal memory remains low which is between 200-400MB. And in most of the cases generally the apps get installed in the internal memory so it take spaces and finally when internal memory becomes full your phone get slow or hanged. Though there is chance to install the apps in SD card but in most of the cases they get installed in the internal memory in default. So to get release from this problem the best solution is to use link2SD which let you install the apps in a separate partition of your SD card.

Recently I’ve shared a post called Manage Apps Easily with App 2 SD (app manager) for Android

Let me show the way to expand internal memory with link2SD.

Requirements:

  1. Your phone must be rooted. Rooting of your phone varies on your phone model.
  2. There should have two partitions and you should backup files from the SD card.

Step-1: Create partition on SD card:

There are two ways to create partition. I recommend you to use Clockworkmod Recovery to create partition.

Creating Partition with Clockworkmod Recovery:

    • At first go to the Recovery
