Hi all,
I have a sony Xperia M (C1905). Till some days ago I have the old android release with rooted access and link2sd. All worked good.

With the last 4.3 update I had some problems, since I'm not an expert android developer . However I managed to root my phone using the haresh311999 guide.

I have my phone rooted, checked also with Root checker. I've also SuperSu, BusyBox and Link2Sd app. I've enabled the debug mode and checked the MSC storage mode.

But in Link2sd I cannot mount my external partition in which I used to link all the bigger apps. I've an ext3 partition and before the 4.3 upgrade it worked good. Now If I try to rebuild the script I got an error:

Quote:

Mounting script cannot be created (This string isn't the original one, since I'm not english).

"mount: Operation not supported on transport endpoint"

I've found in the forum that I should try this procedure but with adb I can't run adb mount or adb root:

Quote:

adbd can't run as root in production builds

I've tried also with adb shell and su command, to mount system as r/w but till now I haven't succeded....
Quote:

$ adb shell
$ su
# mount -o rw,remount /system

Any suggestion ?

Also my ext3 was working good.
I don't want to lose all the data in the partition...
If there are some fixes I prefer to try before format it... Now I just had an idea: I can try to do another partition with the minitool and try if there is only a filesystem problem...

Well, I am sure you must be using Link2Sd to mount games/applications on your Xperia.

Mind if I suggest that you can use FOLDER MOUNT
FOLDER MOUNT LINK

This is amazing little software which requires root but it doesnot do anything more than telling games where to find the OBB files.
In free version, you can mount upto 3 games where as in full version, you can use unlimited mounts!

Check it out and you wouldnot use Link2SD any more

Same problem on a different device... solution: in Link2SD, choose EXT4 (even if the 2rd partition is actually EXT2/3).

This worked for me, and I didn't lose any data in the EXT2 partition. No reformatting needed.

Worked for me as well on Samsung Xcover2 GT-7710

Had the same error, choose ext4 as the partition type and it created the script and asked me to reboot my phone just like it used to on all my other devices.

I couldn't believe that.
Will ext partitions work on our XM?
I had tried many times.
boot loop was the result

I had formatted all types of ext versions. no hope.
Now I am using Memory Swap (JB 4.3)
but still I want Link2SD to be worked.
I have Link2SD Pro App.
Will Link2SD work with swapping?
Now I have been using "nicky root" for rooting, since its a "full root" method.
I have a reserve of 5GB for second partition; not formatted.
Please guide me......
