Hey Guyz :) welcome to Link2sd tutorial... After receiving many request for this type of thread, am writing it with screenshots step by step guide with all links :)

We all know that Link2sd is an app which can extend the apps storage of android smartphone by using 2nd ext4 partition of android's SD Card.

Who can use it ??
Anyone who has root can use this awesome app... support dev for it too :)

We just need Rooted device and it should be atleast running Android version 2.3-6.0.1
Lets move on it...


PREREQUISITES:
1.) First of all, its assumed that the device is rooted perfectly.
2.) There is SD card available(of good class).
3.) A Laptop or PC
4.) Internet for downloading software
5.) And most importantly, A Brain


PROCEDURE:
Now the Procedure for all devices except Android 6 Marshmallow is same.
So we will move with categorizing android versions as 2.3-5.1.1 and 6.0

COMMON METHOD FOR ALL ANDROID VERSIONS:
First of all, download this software named MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional
and attach the Memory card to Laptop/PC using CARD READER i repeat CARD READER not using phone or any other way.

When you have done that, open installed MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional software,
It will show you the detailed info o all partitions attached with your Laptop/PC.
At the last, there will be your memory card attached and it will be with FAT32 style. like in this pic

Times to remove sd card from Laptop and Insert in Smartphone now.
Switch on and download Link2sd from Play store... Here is the Play link for Link2sd

Open it and it will Promped Supersu permission, grant it and then it will ask you for the 2nd partition of your SD Card,
click ext4 and then click ok... it will create script and ask for reboot. Now you will be able to link apps to sd card's 2nd Partition.

If you gets the error that unable to create mount script, failed etc see Marshmallow method for its solution



METHOD FOR ANDROID 6 MARSHMALLOW:
On Marshmallow, after doing same above method, in last, while creating script, you will get error that mount script not created blah blah blah!!
Ignore it, no problem, Don't uninstall Link2sd,
Install another app named App2sd:All in one tool from here Play Link for App2sd
Now open this app and give root permissions,
now click the Link apps to SD Card.
It will ask for partitions style, select ext4 and dont tick init.d support, and done it, it will successfully create the script...
Now you wish if you want to use app2sd for linking or Link2sd.
