That's really f**ked up... same to me. I think there was no error on my side while following the "install-reboot-forget" process. Only the lib folders had been moved/binded somehow to the SD folder, no base.apks and no odex-blobs(?).

The result was a totally broken system. Sorry, but IMHO the Dev should not proclaim it that way as long as the script seems to be in pre-alpha ... All log files in /data/media/adk/logs/ are empty, too!

Really don't know whether LMAO or

The XDA link in the module description takes you to the forum section rather than this thread.

Never ever try magisk stuff without nandroid or other backup in backhand.

I, like everyone else posting here, fell for this extension and lost all my app data.
I'm not sure if this extension is buggy or if we are simply too stupid to get it running but here is what I did:

install
reboot
forget (about all my app data as all apps seem to have lost their data)

I then opened a terminal, typed adk as instructed and am getting:

permission denied. Can't create /data/media/adk/logs/res_apks_verbose_log.txt: permission denied

typing su before adk does indeed give me a list of apps which seems to get longer every few minutes.
Maybe its still busy copying? I'll give it some more time. Not sure what's up though, are we supposed to wait for the ap to copy all app data over then do an initial restore? Or is it not correctly "linking" the apps to the new app data storage?

###edit###
I did not immediately remove this extension as I thought to give it some time. I then rebooted and its now hanging at the boot screen saying: "Starting up ... please wait" - this section usually only takes a few seconds but I've been staring at this screen for minutes now. I'll give it 30 minutes, maybe it is still busy copying all my APKs and app data to the SD card? I mean I was already wondering how this can only need one simple reboot to be ready...

I'll update this thread if I have any new findings as the extension description sounds quite logical so maybe we're all doing something wrong

Dev RECOMMENDED app data backup in first step even BEFORE INSTALLING it through magisk or twrp.
I think nobody is doing it

you're right he did. I didn't say I don't have a backup I only said the extension isn't behaving as advertised OR I don't get how to use it.
Also, he should change that sentence from "recommended" to mandatory if his app wipes app data

I have disabled the extension and rolled back my backup. I'm still wondering what went wrong here as the extension actually created the right folders on my SD card. Somehow the links seem to have been missing. I didn't dare try a restore via "adk ." as it was unclear what else could have gone wrong.

I would however appreciate some feedback and clarification from the author.

Thanks for sharing your experience trying this. I'm tempted to try and think I will after I back home from business trip.

I think one logic point is depending how big is the total size of all apps being "move" around it will vary the time taken. Nowadays people used to install many apps and its data should be huge.

The other factor may be affecting is whether it "move" to internal memory or external like sdcard. I use magic binding and found out the time taken with and without using magic binding have huge different. Usually it's min v.s. 20mins for 1G size file. Reading/writing to sdcard is significantly longer than to internal memory.
