Guide to using Link2SD on your Android smartphone.
3) A Computer
Follow the Procedure below:
There is no need to wipe your memory card when going through this process, just ensure you have at least 0.5GB to 1.0GB of free space to make it worthwhile. You also do not need to use a microSD card adaptor as the process below creates the partition whilst the phone is connected to your PC.
a) Connect your Memory card to the PC via USB Card reader and then launch MiniTool. You should see the details pop up under ‘Disk 2′. In your case it may show as Removable Disk.
a) Open the Link2SD app on your phone. You should be greeted with the following menu, check the FAT32 option and click OK.
You will then see the Superuser Request, Select ‘Allow’.
Once you see the following message, restart your phone. The app should now be ready to use.
b) To make sure everything is installed correctly. Click the Menu button and go to ‘Storage Info’. This will show you the internal memory and your two partitions on the memory card. In our case, you can see that the second partition has 1GB free.
c) Now you need to move the apps of your choice to the memory card. Click the Menu button and press ‘Multi-select’.
Choose which apps you want to move by clicking the tick box next to the app. System apps are greyed out and cannot be selected. Link2SD can only move apps that are already on the internal memory. If you have apps already on your SD card, you will need to move them back to the internal memory before you can link them with Link2SD.
If you want to move all of your apps, pressing the menu button will bring up another menu allowing you to do this.
d) Once you have chosen which apps you want to move, you then need to hit the menu button and press ‘Actions’, which will bring up the following menu. Press ‘Create Link’.
Leave all three check boxes ticked and press OK. Link2SD will now do its work and move/link the selected apps to your memory card.
Once finished, you should see that the apps you have moved have ‘Linked -> SD Card’ in red font in the Link2SD app list. Reboot your phone.
e) Congratulations your phone is now using Link2SD! You should now go to Settings by pressing the menu button and configure how you would like Link2SD to work. The main decision here is whether you want to Auto Link newly installed apps to the memory card. Given that you’ve gone through the hassle of installing Link2SD we suggest you enable Auto Link and make worrying about your internal memory a thing of the past.
