[SOLVED] Link2SD running on ext3 partition for XT720
Today with the help of the developer of Link2sd, Mr. Bulent Akpinar I managed to install Link2SD using a ext3 partition on my Milestone XT720 (USA).
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE
You have to be rooted, use Universal Androot
Then partition sdcard using Minitool Partition Home Edition
*All partitions created have to be Primary partitions*
I) Create FAT32 partition
II) Ext3 (to avoid problems make not bigger than 512 mb)
III) Linux Swap (not necessary)
*After creating those partitions "Flag" or "Label" FAT32
partition as *Boot
I used Root Explorer
1)Extract ext3.zip file and copy files to /system/lib/modules/ using Root Explorer -make sure when using Root Explorer you have enabled Mount R/W button.
exactly like below:
#added by link2sd
mount -t ext3 -o rw /dev/block//vold/179:2 /data/sdext2
mount -t ext3 -o rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /data/sdext2
****Again, use Root Explorer, it has a Text Editor****
Sorry for stressing so much the use of Root Explorer but other apps do not let you edit install-recovery.sh
I have provided my edited install-recovery.sh from stock rom. If you have other rom then try to edit yours first as install-recovery.sh may be different.
After all this changes, REBOOT
your phone, and install Link2SD
