Hi there, for those who are struggling to install games with big cache files like Vice City on Phones like, we used this application called Directory bind to link the cache files stored in the external sd card in to the internal sd card. This application was not created by me, I am just trying to explain how to make it work. All credits go to user "slig" .The thread for directory bind can be found here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410262

We used the version 0.2.0m on our Galaxy S duos, we have not yet checked with the other versions or devices.
Note: This application needs root and We are not responsible for any damage to your phone that may arise from this method.


Before starting installing the game run it once so that a folder for the cache will be created automatically in the internal sd card. CHECK "Shot 1"

create a folder in the external sd card with the same name as the game cache folder in the external sd card.CHECK "Shot 2"

EX: For NFS Most Wanted Create folders with same path as internal directory i.e "/mnt/extSdCard/Android/data/com.ea.games.nfs13_na

Step 1: Download and install the application from the thread given above and grant Superuser permissions.

Step 2: Click the button at the bottom to turn on root access.CHECK "Shot 3"

Step 3: Press the menu button and click on "add new entry".

Step 4: In the screen that appears the first field("Enter source(data)path.") contains the path of the cache files stored in the external sd card( created by the user),and the second field("Enter mount(target) path) is the path to the cache folder in the internal sd card(created by the game).CHECK "Shot 4"

Step 5: Press and hold the first field until the directory browser appears. Select the directory that you created in the external sd card(mnt/extSdcard/Android/data/com.ea.games.nfs13_na)CHECK "Shot 5"

Step 6. In the same way,select the folder created by the game in the internal sd card(mnt/sdcard/Android/data/com.ea.games.nfs13_na).CHECK "Shot 5"

Step 7:Leave the "Transfer files from target to data" unchecked.

Step 8: Click on add. After completion a screen appears like this
note:make sure to check the box next to the bind you created. if its already checked go to the next step.CHECK "Shot 6"

Step 9:Press the menu button and click on the option "Blind Checked". If its successful the floppy icon on the left side turns green.CHECK "Shot 7"

Step 10: Copy the cache files to the folder you created in external sd card (mnt/extSdcard/Android/data/com.ea.games.nfs13_na).

Run the game

I have the same question. I don't see any reason for which it wouldn't work, except maybe the weird directory structure of the S4. I'm coming from an S1 and I've seen that you can no longer access ExtSdCard directly from the SdCard folder. For example DosBox Turbo makes some problems with the autoexe function because of this. Also have some problems with Turbo Manager but I don't know if it's the same reason.
Hopefully I will test Directory Bind on SGS4 4.2.2 before the end of this week and I'll come back with a response.

Mass
hi thanks for the explanation , I'll try this method on my Galaxy Win " Grand Quattro " ,,,

but should I dismount the bind before i use the phone as a mass storage ?

- why do I have to copy the files manually while the program has the ability to copy the files for me ?

thank you again for the explanation
