Hi there,

I'm with stock 4.3 and locked bootloader, i've managed to swap the sd card and then the link2sd with partitioned sd.
But then i've lost the swap, and i'me not getting it back, busybox installed, init.id activated and files copied to system, and nothing, i'm always getting de 2gb internal mem...
There's some kind of problem with some app? I'm using xposed with gravitybox and Gem...

Thks

Info 2 Insufficiant storage...
Xperia M with 4.3 LB and managed to swap.
While connecting to the PC, the internal memory says 13.5 GB and external says 2.05 -- Perfect.
But while installing any app or games it always eating the mem and says insufficient space but my SD card is almost empty.
Theoretically swapped but ultimately the purpose was not fulfilled.
Am I failed to do any additional steps to use my SD cards memory for apps?

It's better unlock it, but there is another way.

1. Get root
2. Get BusyBox using this app: press there Install
3. Get init.d support using this app: press there activate and then verify
4. Format external sdcard into FAT32. Don't forget backup files!
5. Create on external sdcard folder 0 and move there all data from internal storage
6. download the zip and extract it to system/etc/init.d
7. Set permissions to file with all 9 ticks
8. Reboot

Don't pay attention to info in Settings > Storage. It's incorrect.
Just check using filemanager content of internal memory and sdcard.
It's must be swapped:

– External memory now linked to internal 2 GB
– Internal memory now linked to external sdcard: files located in folder 0

For stock 4.3 with Unlocked bootloader

1. Install CWM recovery via flashtool: tutorial
2. Get root by flashing via recovery SuperSU.zip
3. Get BusyBox using this app: press there Install
4. Get init.d support using this app: press there Enable init.d
5. Format external sdcard into FAT32. Don't forget backup files!
6. Create on external sdcard folder 0 and move there all data from internal storage
7. Flash via recovery ZIP attached below

Don't pay attention to info in Settings > Storage. It's incorrect.
Just check using filemanager content of internal memory and sdcard.
It's must be swapped:

– External memory now linked to internal 2 GB
– Internal memory now linked to external sdcard: files located in folder 0

For CyanogenMod 11 and other 4.4

1. Create on external sdcard folder 0 and move there all data from internal storage
2. Flash via recovery ZIP attached below

– External memory as before linked to actual sdcard
– Internal memory now linked to external sdcard: files located in folder 0
– No access to real 2 GB internal memory

Video tutorial for stock 4.3 with Unlocked bootloader from me

If you will follow this video be aware.
For init.d support install APK provided on YouTube, NOT app with almost same name form Google Play: Universal init.d

credits
@Bonoboo for a more simple tutorial
@zeyad xu for finding this
@xda people for trying
also for @raffie_archildz the man who made this

1. Create an Ext4 partition in your microSD with "Mini Tool Partition Wizard" ( you can search tutorial in google)
2. Install Link2sd and create mount script (EXT4)
3. reboot
4. Open Link2sd and select apk > menu> Create link
5. Done
Never use MSC mode (USB Mass Storage) for connecting to PC!
This can mess up data your files. Use only MTP!
Settings > Xperia Connectivity > USB Connectivity > USB Connection mode > Media transfer mode (MTP)
