Default Data 2 SD

I'm currently running Android Revolution HD, I want to save my current app data to my external micro SD card. Any ideas?

download mounts2sd app from appstore. its free.

i am using it and it works perfectly.

all my applications and application data is now in 64gb card and leaves me with lots of space in internal memory.

application data in sdcard makes phone a lil bit slow though.

If you could please help me...

Searching for 10 days..

My phone is rooted,s on, insertcoin custom rom, I can move manually apps+ data (using es explorer) to sd But the link isn't done between the app and the data, I mean the app doesn't work and always want to download data again..

I tried mounts2sd but it doesn't find sd_ext and so doesn't make the job...

ok. no worries mate.

following is the way i did and proved to be working.

1. format your sd card
2. create a fat32 partition. it has to be primary partition.
3. create a ext4 partition. it has to be primary partition.
4. create a linux swap partition. it has to be primary partition.
5. better to start with a fresh rom installation. you can try with already installed rom.
6. install mounts2sd.
7. start mount2sd and go to application settings and install script.
8. in settings select the folder you want to move.
9. enable swap.
10. restart the phone - without restarting script won't take effect.

DONE!!!!

Oh god I need to return to high tech school!

Format Linux, format fat 32 partitions....
Which app to format all this?

My sd card is 32 go how many go must be designed to each partition?

I have max 10 go of medias and 15 go of game and gps data and nandroid backups..

use minitool partition manager.

you will find fat32, ext4 and linus swap option in that.

in a 32gb card you will get 28-29 usable free disk space. if it was me i would have done 23gb media and 5-6 gb ext4 and 256mb of linux swap.

cheers

Hum, I suppose minitool partition manager is a Windows app and that the job will have to be done mostly on pc right?

I have found this link on Google is it what you're talking about : http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tu...de-to-link2sd/
Quite the same no?

Isn't it possible to make the partition job in twrp 2.7 ?

Ok first thing I backup my sd card on my computer

FolderMount also does a good job on solving this problem...

And NextApp SDFix enables write compatibility on KK devices.

Yes these apps are nice, I tried them but you still have some link limitations if you don't apply @dying4004 method..
