Link2SD is an application that makes it easy for Android 1.6+ users with root privileges on their phone to move applications to the SD card.
The notion behind is identical with apps2sd scripts, linking applications to SD card's second partition but differs in two methods.
1, rather of linking /data/app folder (that indicates moving all applications), you can pick applications that you want to move.
Two, it's an application which means has a user interface. You can manage your applications with couple of clicks.
It also provides native apps2sd functions on Android 2.two and larger. It can move any non-protected user apps to SD card (force move), with batch moving capability.
That function uses Android's common SD-card installation function and does not require a second partition. It can break some apps if they are not meant to be moved to the SD card (Such as Widgets).
- Generate and get rid of hyperlink for apk, dex and lib files of the applications you pick
- Automatically hyperlink newly installed apps (optional)
- Move any user apps to SD even although the app does not help moving to SD (a.k.a. "force move", for Android 2.two and larger)
- Shows the apps that assistance moving to SD with native apps2sd (for Android two.2 and larger)
- Set the default set up place of the apps auto, internal, or external (for Android two.two and greater)
- Batch hyperlink, unlink, reinstall, uninstall, "move to SD", "move to phone" functions (multi-pick mode)
- Uninstall program applications (bloatware removal)
- Freeze and un-freeze technique and users applications
- Convert system apps into user apps
- Convert user apps into program apps
- Integrate "Updated" system apps into system (ROM)
- Clear data and cache of the application
- Clear all apps cache at once (1-tap cache cleaner with no being root)
- List applications, show detailed size info and hyperlink status
- Sort and filter applications
- Search applications by name
- Display obtainable space details of internal storage, SD card and SD card 2nd partition
What you require:
- root permission.
- a second partition on your SD card.
You must have two partitions on SD card and each must be principal.
The 1st FAT partition is your common SD card storage. The second partition is used for application files and can be ext2, ext3, ext4 or FAT32.
Some phones lack the ext2, ext3 or ext4 file system support and you may possibly get mount errors like "no such device", "invalid argument". These phones need ext2.ko or ext3.ko modules and even some extra modules to be in a position to mount. Employing FAT32 on the second partition will eleminate such troubles, because FAT32 is supported on all phones.
Link2SD does not develop the second partition, you require to generate it yourself. You can use any partition manager such as Minitool, Paragon, Easeus and so forth. for this.
How it works:
Link2SD mounts the second partition of your SD card and tends to make OS mounts it at boot time.
When you press "Produce Link" button Link2SD moves apk file, dalvik-cache (.dex) file and lib files (.so) to SD card's 2nd partition and creates symbolic links in original directories.
Note: On Android 1.six and 2.1, shortcut and the widget of the app ought to be re-added to homescreen if you move the apk file.
You can remove the hyperlinks and put application files back to telephone. Just click on "Get rid of Hyperlink" button.
Some points
- Method applications must not be linked to SD card. Link2SD does not allow these applications to be linked.
- When you connect your telephone to Computer as mass storage, Android unmounts the very first FAT partition but the second partition remains mounted. For that reason linked applications are not affected and can be run without troubles.
- Link2SD does not move application's private information files it moves apk, dex (dalvik-cache) and lib files.
DISCLAIMER: It is created obtainable for use at your personal threat with no warranty of any type.
