and a game of 100mb is probably hd or armv7 only so even if you do get it installed the chance of it running smoothly on a galxy y 5360 is slim

i set automatically install and linked apps to SD card by link2SD...

probably most games, but ill try it on gio not on my galaxy y.

thanks! HIT

At first it installs in internal memory,then only link2sd links it To second partion,even though you ticked Auto-link.

you mistake physical internel storage with virtual internal storage


just becase you have a 2nd sd card partition of xyz doesnt mean your internal storage increases - it doesnt - it stays exactly the same - this is physical storage - it never changes

what you are doing is creating virtual internal storage on your sd card - apps installed here act like they are on physical internal storage

you still need a large ammount of physical internel storage to install the app before it is moved/linked to virtual storage plus data is still stored on physical storage

Like what marcussmith said, it is virtual storage. Once he removes the SD card, the internal storage will return to its actual value.

If you REALLY want to increase internal storage legitimately, you will need to break the phone apart and replace the storage devices within. It would be better to buy a new phone than go through all the fuss just to increase physical legit storage and also the cost of buying the new storage might be enough to buy another phone... :P

And also you must find a storage device that fits into the casing of the phone. Wouldn't it be awkward using a phone with the chipsets bulging out of the phone casing?
