Question [Q] CM11 on HTCExplorer - Phone internal memory very low

Hi

I have my HTCExplorer(pico) hosting a 16GB SDcard of 12GB+fat32+primary and 2GB+ext3+primary+sd-ext label partitions.

I have installed CM11 RC1 ROm on my phone, as described in the first page of the ROM development thread. But still without any additional apps installed I'm left with 25MB internal memory only.

What I did .....
1. copied the ROM and GAPPS to my SDCard from my laptop
2. Reboot into recovery
3. wipe all data/factory reset
4. mount sd-ext partition
5. installed the ROM
6. reboot the phone
7. after the first reboot, again rebooted to recovery
8. now this time installed GAPPs
9. again reboot the phone

Now, only 25MB left in my phones internal memory. Seems like the int2ext script is not working which is included in the ROM (I believe).

You need to use mounts2sd or Put a script.. In init,d folder and restart.. Your memory will be increased..

Thank you for your reply.

But AFAIK, the sd-ext script is already included in the ROM as this post says.

So, if the script is there it should work. Anyway I'll try your methods today and will post the results here.

Yes i agree its already there i think you will find that in settings-> extras(I dont remeber that much but it is there only) mounts sd-ext something like that.. Tick on it see if that increases AFAIK it does increase the memory..

OMG! Man, you nailed it on the head.
Many thanks to you.

Just goto Settings -> Device ->Extra > Enable sd-ext for /data, that's it. Now I'm enjoying my 2GB internal memory

But apart from this, I can see the speaker sound is very low (in calls) even if it is at 100% as compared to my previous MiniCM9 ROM.
Any pointer champs?

I think there is no workaround for low volume on the ROM and none of the users reported the sound being low.. So to Say there is no workaround for it..

Well another thing i would like say.. The default script is int2ext+ which leaves /data to /data and app to /ext..
If you are the user who uses apps alot at some point of time you will face low memory notification.. So for that you need to use int2ext.. You will find the script and method in 2nd post.
