Hello!

My problem basically is that i can't use Link2sd - i'm currently running the latest CronosX mod - because it can't create the mount scripts. I keep getting the following error:

mount: mounting /dev/block/vold/179:2 on /data/sdext2 failed: device or resource busy

i have a trascend class 10 8gb SD, i have a 6,5 gb Fat partition and the rest is EXT2 (now). I formatted it with minitool partition magic.

I have googled the problem for days now, seems i found nothing useful..

so far i tried:
ext3, ext4 -- then still couldn't create mount scripts, but i also had the following error msg in OR:
"can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 (invalid argument)"

although in SD utilities when checking the ext partition it recognised as EXT4 or EXT3..
with ext2 it seems working as of i don't see that msg..

still no link2sd. I read in the mod's forum that the app is supported, so it can't be the problem.. or is it?

Same issue, resoved by using FAT32
I had the exact same issue you're having. I tried using EXT2,EXT3, and EXT4 but couldn't get it to work. I finally got it working by using a FAT32 partition.

I know this may sound a bit dumb (like myself in android technicals) but

1. Do you have the specific kernel modules loaded to recognize these filesystems?
2. Are the devices attached to the PC with memory card access? [should not be].
3. Maybe you should try partitioning with a linux distro or some specific tool (might want to check out some instructions.

I am operating Link2SD with a fat16/32 partition (I don't know which :P)

Mount as ext4 is not a problem. It should work.

how you can solve this problem, is to make the second partition a active partitons with MiniTool Partition.

When de second disk is a active partition it wil boot before the boot of the system.

you must re-partition your sd card, BUT, just do it for your sd-ext only:

with Partition magic
1. delete your sd-ext partition (JUST YOUR SD-EXT PARTITION)
2. create partition
3. set as Primary
4. and CHOOSE ext4!!,
5. ok and then,
6. Apply

I hope this will help you..
