Link2SD for Dummies | Samsung Galaxy Young


NOTE: I spent hours updating my guides and I don't ask you to press that THANKS button, be kind enough not to copy my guides to other forums. I know some noobs want to make a name on other forum boards... but hey, that's not an excuse!

>
UPDATES: 05-26-2012 Added screenshots Added list of compatible ROMS Corrected some typos

REQUIREMENTS: 1. Link2SD [DOWNLOAD] 2. Rooted Samsung Galaxy Young

3. ROM that supports Link2SD 4. SD Card with 2 partitions(FAT/FAT32 | EXT2/EXT3/EXT4)

Tested On: STOCK: S5360_DXLC1_OLBLA1_DXLC1 Custom ROMS: ChobitsDigitalis Legacy v1.6 and v1.8

Link2SD Guide for Samsung Galaxy Young

INITIAL SETUP 1. Download Link2SD from Google Play Store (previously Android Market) 2. Root your phone (if not rooted) Verify that you have Custom ROM that supports Link2SD ROMS that support Link2SD (tested by me) ChobitsDigitalis v1 to v1.6 Update (The best ROM for SGY to date) | (Android Development Section) Hybrid ROM (Android Development Section)

3. Partition your SD Card. (preferably via MiniTool Partition Wizard 7 or up) for SD cards 2GB or Lower Partition 1: Label: Android-SD File System: FAT Partition Size(in MB): 1536 MB (1.5GB for 2GB SD Cards) or 836MB (for 1GB SD Cards) Partition 2: Label: Android-EXT(EXT Number): Ex. Android-EXT2/EXT3 or EXT4 File System: EXT3 (preferable file system)

NOTE: EXT2 is old, EXT4 is the fastest among 3 but not compatible in all ROMS and often requires kernel that supports EXT4, so go for EXT3, fast and mounts on most ROMS. For SD Cards 4GB and up, IT IS ADVISED NOT TO SET EXT PARTITION SIZE MORE THAN 1GB.

4. Install Link2SD 5. Open Link to SD and select the appropriate file system of your second partition and the tap on OK. 6. Link2SD will require you to restart your phone , do it after step 7. 7. To make sure everything is working fine take a note of your current storage information by tapping on Menu > Storage Info then restart afterwards. 8. After reboot, open Link2SD and filter applist to show User Apps by tapping on the funnel icon and then select User.

MOVING APPS TO SECOND PARTITION 9. To move an app to SD's second partition, tap an application and then tap on Create Link. Follow the guideline below: For Applications (Root Apps/Games/Normal Apps), put a check on the following: 1. Link application file (the .apk file itself) 2. Link dalvik-cache file 3. Link library file (if an app have lib files)

For Widgets/Live Wallpapers installed on SD Card by default: 1. Link application file (the .apk file itself) 2. Link dalvik-cache file 3. Link library file (if an app have lib files)

NOTE: Moving an application to Strage Card will move the app on your 1st partition not the second partition which is not good as it will eat up free space for your media files.

DELETING BLOATWARES 10. To delete a bloat system app, filter applist to show System Apps by tapping on the funnel icon and then select System. 11. Tap an application the tap on Actions and select Uninstall from the popup menu. 12. If you know what you're doing (deleting bloat system apps), you simply ignore the warning. NOTE: Do not delete OEM Apps (Ex. Samsung Apps for Samsung Phones) as it may cause you problems if the app you deleted is required by your phone to perform some functions.

LINKING DALVIK-CACHE FILES 13. Do this to save more space on your phone's internal memory. Tap on Menu > More > Link dalvik-cache file from the popup menu.

I have a tablet that has 250mb for system 7GB extra as internal memory (formated FAT32) and a SD card slot outside. I partitioned the internal memory (internal SD card). The first partition (with 6Gb) I set primary/FAT32 and the second with 1Gb EXT2/primary. I wish the Link2SD save apps on the second partition of the internal SD card. I wanted to keep my external SD card without partitioning. Why I want to do this? Using the internal partition of 7GB is very annoying because it is very slow at USB transfer, and hardly use it. So instead of wasting space partition and my external SD card, I wanted to partition the internal SD card and also wanted the Link2SD utilizasse this internal SD card for apps. Is this possible? If this is not possible, I can unify the system partition with the 7Gb's partition, leaving the system with about 8GB of space?

If this is not possible, I can unify the system partition with the 7Gb's partition, leaving the system with about 8GB of space? That is possible. But as for the configuration or any requirement to make it work on your tablet, that I don't know. As you mentioned you have to SD Cards, right? An internal and external + the 250mb internal memory. Am I correct? If you want to use your internal sd card, you can format it to EXT2, EXT3 or EXT4. FAT32 is supported by Link2SD but EXT partition is the native partition for Linux which Android OS is using.

>

After you format your internal sd card to EXT, tap on Menu> More> Recreate Mount Scripts and the choose the appropriate file system for your internal sd. One thing I am not sure of is... If link2sd would be able to detect the correct sd card for mounting. If you format your internal sd to EXT file system, then you have a big chance that link2sd will read your internal sd as the right as card for mounting. NOTE: It is advisable that 2nd partition should not go over 1Gb, but you can experiment with higher values and let us know if it works.

As you mentioned you have to SD Cards, right? An internal and external + the 250mb internal memory. Am I correct? Yeah. I'm not sure if it's a SD inside the tablet or a chip. But I access the internal memory through the /sdcard folder. And the "really external" SD card is accessed through the /sdcard/tflash folder.

Sent from my GT-S5360 using xda premium I try it. I partitioned the "internal" sd card. The first partition was FAT32/primary and the second partition was EXT2/primary. But Link2SD don't find this second partition. Even if I formated in FAT32/primary, EXT3/primary etc...
