Lightbulb [GUIDE][HOW TO] Link2SD Extreme...Much More Internal Memory [ADDED SS]

Want more space in internal even after using Link2SD....Get the most out of your Link2SD

What You Need:
  • Link2sd
  • Rooted device
  • Root Explorer or other file manager that have root access
  • sdext on your sdcard (ext2 or ext3 or ext4, it's up to you)
  • init.d support

Steps:
  • Install Link2sd
  • Open link2sd
  • Choose your ext depend on your sdext
  • Restart your phone manually, not from link2sd
  • Go to Link2sd settings
  • uncheck all Link2SD options
  • exit from link2sd
  • Open root explorer or other file manager that have root access
  • Go to /data/sdext2, delete all folder if any
  • Go back to /data
  • Copy app, data, app-private, and dalvik-cache to /sdext2 ( Dont move them as it leads to bootloop)
  • Wait till its over
  • Go to /sdext2
  • Create shortcut of all the folders you just copied (Long press the "app" folder, scroll down, and choose "Create Shortcut")
  • Go back to /data, and choose create shortcut
  • Repeat this for data, app-private, and dalvik-cache
  • After that, restart your phone twice, and look at internal storage.
  • Enjoy


If your phone become laggy, don't move data, just copy the other 3 folders

Internal Memory after linking one app in normal Link2SD



Internal Memory after linking the same app in Link2SD Extreme



Internal Memory after uninstalling Maps,Youtube and Quickoffice



If your facing force close then wipe data and cache before doing this...
