However , recently i found an application named "root and me" . Well , i don't know what is that thing but in the description , it was written "*NEW UPDATE FIXES APP CRASH AND FIXES UNNECESSARY PERMISSIONS! DISREGARD COMMENTS!" . I haven't try with it yet . Perhaps you can try using that to FIX UNNECESSARY PERMISSIONS ? And if you have tried and it works , please let me know . If it doesn't work as well , you don't have to worry much because bakpinar is about to release a new version with multi-select function , maybe there is an option to reinstall (hope so) ?

Thanks for the reply.

I am not sure how "root and me" would help. But you are right. This happens anytime after the phone boots up without the SD card. Android would fail to find the apk and that's when they lose their permissions. It's strange how facebook continue to work.

Anyways, link2sd already has reinstall option, which works. It's just annoying if you use ADW to create custom shortcut, the shortcut goes away.

I am going to only link apps that work. And link apps that doesn't to /cache instead. BTW, linking large .so files to the sdcard using adb also saves internal storage.

Facebook can continue work ? Strange...my facebook will crash . For me , all version of Angry Birds never experience any crash . I wish to link .so files as well but i just don't know how to do that , so i guess i will only be able to wait for bakpinar's new update . To prevent your phone from having that problem , i suggest you to change a new sdcard , this is because since i changed my sdcard from 8gb class 2 to 16gb class 4 , i haven't facing that issue so far . Hence i think the problem must be related to the sdcard .

My tablet is rooted and I have tried two different ways to create a recognizable partition, using MiniTool partition wizard and using Ubuntu, in both cases the partition was created succesfully but was not recognized by the tablet.

In fact once partitioned any of both partitions was recognized.

Link2SD displays a message saying thet the partition not found.

I have asked this question before in a Tablets Forum and got some answers, one recommending to partition NAND(?) and the excelent recommendation to better contact you.

The forum is androidtablets dot net/forum/coby-tablets/11299-coby-7015-link2sd-ext2-partition-not-found.html[/url] (I had to writte it in this way since the forum was not allowing links)

May you help me?

Regards from Chile



To determine the external storage (SD Card) location, Link2SD uses Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory (not hard coded "/sdcard").

Can you run "set" command from terminal on your tablet and check EXTERNAL_STORAGE environment varible.

This should be your external SD card mount point, but I see that on some tablet models EXTERNAL_STORAGE points to internal storage (built in NAND) instead of SD card device.


Bakpinar, I run the "set" command I have got EXTERNAL_STORAGE=/sdcard
What shall I do now?


The same Problem for me

Does Link2SD still list them as linked? If so, you can try selecting each of the missing apps and clicking reinstall. If they aren't listed, see if the apk files for those apps are in the /data/sdext/ directory using a file manager like root explorer or through a terminal.

UPDATE:
1.6.0
- added option to link library (.so) files along with apk and dex files
- added automatic linking option for the new installed apps
- added ability to link/unlink apk, dex and lib files separately
- added '->' linked indicator to Apk, Dex and Lib labels
- added lib file size and link status information
- added lib size to sort options
- some bugfixes

The main improvement in this version is option to link the native library (*.so) files that some apps install in their /data/lib directory.
These libraries are typically quite large, so moving them to SD will free up space on the internal storage.
I added lib size info both to main list page and app detail page so you can see how much space you'll free up if you link it.

Another improvement is that, you can link/unlink apk, dex and lib files separately, that is, you can link or unlink all three or any two of three or even only one of them.

Another new addition is auto linking option for new installed applications. You can enable/disable this feature and select which files will be linked automatically from the new settings menu.

And some bug fixes and code improvements.

Hope you enjoy!

Hello friend, great job, sadly, could not do on my tablet Coby MID7015. Does not recognize the partition. I am anxious to use your app. A hug

tablet, Coby, 2.1 rooted
bakpinar: I reformatted my 8gb sdcard with Partition Wizard but the Coby will not recognize the card after doing it. I also tried Easeus Partition which appears to be same program different name but link2sd still tells me no 2nd partition...probably because Coby won't mount the card. Any ideas on what I may not be doing? Both partitions(fat32 & ext 2) are primary. thx

It doesn't appear like your sd card contains a second partition which is needed for Link2SD. If you did, 179:2 would be listed in the /dev/block/vold directory and is what Link2SD tries to mount. As you can see from your mount command output, the /sdcard partition is mounted on 179:1 since that represents the first partition of the removable media device located at 179:0.

Does the Coby tablet support ext2 filesystems? If not, you will either need to get a compatible ext2.ko module to enable support or make the second partition fat32 also.

Hello friend thanks for replying, actually after several tests, I had to format and leave only one partition so you can use the memory card. That's why it appeared only one partition, did more commands to see what our friend bakpinar can do to help us. I've tried also to create the ext2 partition and does not recognize too. It seems that we do not have this module loaded in our system. I had to find a compatible chipset and Android Eclair. I found this topic here
