I already got my mount script and I already linked my ext data (e.g. bloons 6 - 500mb) to 2nd partition, success and when I play, it starts. HOWEVER, Whenever I restart my phone, wait for green bind successful confirmation and start the game. It will start downloading the ext data again. and worse, on APP2SD its says that the ext. data is already "LINKED"! but in reality its not since it needs to re-download the data again. How do I fix this???

This app is getting on my nerves. 🤬

I'm using an Android 12 Pixel Experience+ GSI.

Something in the latest Android 12 updates has broken Apps2SD. I don't know which security patch it is, but somewhere along the line, linking apps resets the apps data. When I link Adguard, it is as if I reset the app and have to start over from scratch. I know this only pertains to Android 12 because I downgraded to Android 11 on one of my devices and suddenly Apps2SD works perfectly. Does anyone else have a similar problem?

I reckon this is what's causing this

His app is not recognizing the link or something. Same with Adguard for me

    Hi all,

    This is my first post in XDA but I've been a regular reader as a guest. I've developed an app(Apps2SD) to move/link apps from internal storage to external SD card with lots of other cool features.

    Apps2SD has evolved from being an app which moves app data to sd card to an all in one app with many cool features.

    Prerequisites:
    • Device needs to be rooted
    • Root permission should be granted to Apps2SD
    • 2 partitions on external SD card (use Apps2SD partition tool to create 2nd partition). 1st partition should be FAT/exFat partition, this is your standard SD card storage. The second partition is used as the internal storage for linked application files and can be ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs.

    First of all I'd like to thank all of you for the continuous support you've given me. After evaluating all the Pros and Cons I have decided not to continue development and support for the the app. I know many of you will be disappointed but trust me it was a very tough decision for me. I have spent countless hours on research, development and testing the app and I'll always be proud of it.

    PS: I'll be releasing the final build for free version (with pro features) tonight on play store, hopefully they don't suspend the free version as well.

    Update: The apk is updated in play store and attached in the first post
