Question [Q] Please Help Me to Install Games & Apps to External Memory

I am a newbie to Android.
This is my first handset.
C2004 Build Number 15.2.A.2.5
(Xperia M Dual with Indian firmware)

I had tried all the methods, which are available our forum, and failed to get positive result.
Please help me someone, who is using same firmware, to get rid of my low memory issue.

I know apps to SD will not work on XM
I tried link2SD.
but, result is boot loop.
my handset is restarting after Xperia Logo.
I am using Verbatim UHS-1 class 10 64GB card.

i had partitioned my sd card and second partition is deleted to overcome restarting issue.
usually I make a partition on that unused space(10GB) in ext2 while doing experiments.

I have also one more issue,
.thumbnails folder become huge.
now it is 850MB !!!!! (aboubt half of our memory)
Can I transfer these thumbnails to external SD card??

Bro you must be half rooted that's why you are getting bootloop, did you used remount reboot fix by nut after rooting?

And you can't move the thumbnails to extsd, better update your album app...it solves the problem of oversize thumbnail problem

OMG!!!!!
What did I said!!!
I am on locked boot loader with stock ROM 4.2.2

those bootfix scripts will not work with 64bit windows?????
Once I had successful bootfix on 32bit Windows 7
(I had made more than 20 attempts)
My second partition was in FAT32
I was able to link apps
but still my internal memory is not increasing even after linked&moved apps; Why?
As I am using windows, I couldn't copy data files to second partition.
Then how could I install games?


after that, I had installed more than 10 apps
due to high drain of battery, I had to hard reset my phone.
Now I am not able to fix boot loop
Please guide me....

(Now All rooting methods fails, but still I could install superSU manually
& root checker shows I have root access.
Installed busybox..
and all root required apps works without any problem)
