Hi all.

I've bought on Ebay a new Chinese Android 4.2 smartphone, it is identified as Alps X416 (I know that Alps it's a generic identification for something unknown/generic, not a real company...).
It's a strange but powerful phone (I choose it because it's cheap and Android 4.2): it has no SD internal card, but it can use a MicroSD as internal SD, so the space for app is really high...if link2sd could work at all, but it is not.
System appear S-ON, so apps are not really moved to SD, and system memory is very low, so I'm limited in using it and system became slow.
I Had no problem to root it and to install last busybox, but it's quite impossible to use ext2/3/4 filesystems for MicroSD, the original ROM doesn't support them.
I was searching for original ROM (as a backup), but specially a modified ROM (cyano seems not still supporting it, so I don't know what to choose for my phone).

You could try and root the app and download busybox and you can have space for everything.

Faster Android Mobile
Getting suitable ROMs for china android mobiles are little bit difficult. If you flashed unsupported rom, your mobile will get bricked. Till you flash custom rom, make your device fine.

First you may root your device. For rooting china android mobiles first of all download Moboginie or pdanet on your pc, connect your device to pc it will install drivers automatically for your device. Then download and install "VRoot" latest version on pc, connect mobile, vroot will find your device. Click on root, after 5 to 10 seconds your mobile will be rooted.

Now download Minitool Partion Wizard for partition your sd you may search thread for partition sd. Create fat32 partition around 1gb. This will be your ext2 partition on sd card. Now download and install Link2sd on your mobile. Run Link2sd if 2nd partition will not detected by link2sd. Install and Open Root Explorer, go to system/etc/install-recovery.sh, if there is no such file then create it. In install-recovery.sh file type this lines.

#!/system/bin/sh
#added by link2sd
LOG=/data/link2sd-install-recovery.log
echo "$(date) mounting..." > $LOG
mount -t vfat -o rw /dev/block/vold/179:2 /data/sdext2 1>>$LOG 2>>$LOG

mount -t vfat -o rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /data/sdext2 1>>$LOG 2>>$LOG

mount >> $LOG
echo "$(date) mount finished" >> $LOG
echo "$(date) mount finished" >> $LOG


For more details go here for solution. Now your mobile got sufficient internal storage. Now download Ram Expander and install, set swap file size as you wish and run swap, now you will get more ram on your device.

Enjoy faster android device.
