And guess what? I was right, damn right!
Though the procedure was tested on a Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102, it should work on any Android mobile phone, especially the Galaxy Duos series.
Please proceed with caution and backup your data first!.
Again, what we are setting out to do is to make the device recognize the external memory card as an internal memory.
1.You will need to root your phone first which could be found here. (Thx to artwales)
2.Download the following file and store in your sdcard; Download skin of cwm skin 1980 from google.
Install the app LINK 2 SD from google play.
1.Switch off your phone and boot up into recovery mode by pressing the following keys at the same time;
2.Volume up +Home button +lock button
3.Release the buttons immediately the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos logo comes on
4.On the screen labelled ” Android System Recovery”, use the volume key to select “apply update from sd
card”, then select “skin1980-G1-S5360+CWN.z”On the screen “ClockworkMod Recovery v”, select “advanced”
5.On the screen “Advanced and Debugging”, select “Partition SD Card”
6.On the screen “For Ext Size”, select the size you will want your new internal memory storage to be. A max size of 1024 MB (1GB) is advised because of stability issues.
7.On the screen labelled “swap size”, select 0M
8.Now you wait a few minutes for your SD card to be partitioned.
9.Afterwards, select “reboot recovery”, then select “reboot system now”. Your phone will reboot.
11.Choose “recreate mount script”, then select “ext3″
12.Reboot your phone
After your phone reboots, you may launch the linksd app again and move installed software to the partition you created by “linking” them.
Please note that you will not notice any increase in the size of your internal memory after this procedure when you check via your phone settings but what it does is that subsequent installations are made directly on your SD card subject to the maximum size you partitioned.
Now i have a 1GB Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102. Life is indeed Good!!!
P.S: Dont forget to comment.
