I successfully rooted my Samsung Galaxy Blaze phone, installed Titanium BackUp and now would like to send my app data to my nice 16GB SDHC card. The problem is, I can't get it partitioned probably because my laptop's card reader can't really read SDHC cards, even in adapters. It recognizes that the card is there, but then wants to format it and won't format it. I tried using the Mini Tools Partition Wizard, but each attempt failed, claiming I had a bad card. The card works beautifully in the phone, so I don't think that's the problem, especially since brand new cards get the same reaction.
Is there a way to partition the card from my phone? I have good reason to believe that my memory problems have a lot to do with the boatload of email I have saved in GMail, or the fact that Google+ somehow decided I really needed *all* of my photos on my phone, via Picasa (another source of angst and muttering).
I'm making a partition on my (clean) micro SD card to use to increase my phone's internal storage. The intent was to go from 200 or so MB to 8 GB, because some apps can't be moved to the SD card and must be on the phone's storage. My question is, can I give the partition a certain format (FAT, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2, EXT3, Unformatted, etc.) and have it work, or is there more I need to do?
I have used partitions on my old rooted phone where I thought the sd card had crashed because of partitioning it. Now I have removed the partition and I am still getting problems. Then I formatted my whole micro sd card using windows.
Whenever I insert my sd card into windows via my phone, it asks me to format it. Why has micro sd partitioning wrecked my sd card???!!
I used ROM Manager to Partition my SD card (I have clockwork recovery latest version), I select 512 for EXT and 32 for Swap. Phone reboots and when I check the file manager on my SD card, it reads my SD card has 7069M left. Is it partitioned? if so how can I make my apps Run off of it? If it is, NOW WHAT? How do I use it to actually install Apps on it and Make my Phone faster?
I'm having a nightmare and really need some help from someone a bit more savvy than me. I've been looking at various threads and cant make my arse from my elbow. I seriously have tried guys and not just being lazy. So, I've bought a new SD card and I want to use apps2sd+ which is built into the LeeDroid rom that I have managed to flash using ClockworkMod Recovery. The problem I have is making a partition on my card. I've downloaded Rom Manager but when it goes to do its stuff, it reboots with an exclamation mark and a droid. What/where am I doing or going wrong?
I rooted a few weeks back and very happy with everything apart from I keep getting low on space notification for my phone storage, when I rooted I didn't bother with partitioning my sd card as read about Mod Install Location which basically forces apps to be installed onto the sd card and didn't think I would need to install anything on my internal storage but it seems I keep getting low storage notification. So I am assuming some of the apps I install have to use a little bit of the internal memory? I used Cache Mate and checked all the apps etc. So considering doing the partitioning to trick my phone to think it has more space but wondering will I lose everything or have to back it up? Or any other tips to free up internal space as it seems ROM I am using (neophyte 1.6) didn't free up much space.
Can someone help me with partition my SD card? I have APPS2SD installed but it wont partition it, neither will ROM Manager. I have Windows7 and Ubuntu 10.4. If it can be done with just the phone I'd prefer that method, then the Ubuntu method, then Windows (i hate the command prompt in Win).
So I've tried and tried again using RA and other linux based programs (GParted) to get my 8GB card to partition for apps2sd. Everything always runs smoothly and shows that the card is partitioned correctly. But then upon reboot the SD card shows full fat32 memory (6.9 GB). No matter what I do, after reboot, the partitions never happen. When I used GParted, and then loaded the SD card on the phone it always says that the SD card is damaged and I need to reformat. I've done that and rerun everything to no avail. Someone please tell me this issue is that the SD card is corrupted and I should give up. Because I've followed everything to a T as far as partitioning. With that I'll say that I had no problems rooting my phone, flashing ROM's/RA's, etc, and have been able to do whatever I want as far as new things to load. I've finally decided after all this time to do apps2sd, and I literally screwed around for 5+ hrs today, trying to partition the SD card properly. Any thoughts?
My Huawei Ideos u8150 is stuck on the logo. its six month old and not under warranty seal...now when I was surfing the internet (Obviously with another phone) I got an info says that I can format the SD card and create a new folder named "dloder" then put some files on it. then when I restart the phone pressing the volume down, red button and power button, the phone will update itself and it'll be ok again. now my Qs are:-
1 - does such method work?
2 - if it works then what are the files I should put on the "dloder" folder and where do I get those files?
I am using u8150 ideos, My Wi-fi or Wifi portable hotspot has just stopped working no matter how much i wipe data factory reset install stock rom or change any rom it doesnt work. First it used to give Error in between connection now it doesnt even get On. it says Error below Wi-Fi doesnt detect any network there is 1 mine and 2-3 in the area that it used to detect, i installed CM7 rom on my mob once and it had many bugs and a kernel too am sure its a kernel or some problem ..
I also deleted a wifi folder from root explorer thinking it will remake itself but delete or not the wifi doesnt work.
I've been reading up on partitioning my SD Card for the Apps 2 SD functionality. Few n00b questions to clear up if I can! 1) Once partitioned, I believe that all app data will be able to be installed on the SD, as opposed to leaving a few hundred KB's on the internal? If I make a direct copy of all SD Card contents, partition the SD, and copy back, will the App's still appear 'as normal', or is a fresh backup/install required? 2) If the answer to the first question is that I CAN simply copy back to the SD, can I then use the "Move to Phone" and "Move to SD Card" options to move ALL of the app data, including the original few hundred KB's originally on internal? Feel like a douche asking these just can't quite get my head around it trawling through the other threads.
i have a question re the whole process. i used unrevoked to root my desire n used adamg's froyo sense w/o partitioning d sd card. upon boot up to the rom, i noticed that the internal storage has the same storage space left of about only 20mb which is basically the same as with the original rom. i now used rom manager n partioned my sd card 512mb for both ext n swap file. n upon restarting, it now has an internal mem of more than 120mb.
1. Are my partitioning settings correct? 512mb for both ext and swap files? If not, what should be the ideal setings and can please someone explain what ext n swap files are and what they are for? 2. Since I partitioned the drive 'after' installing the froyo sense by adamg, do i need to reflash the rom again? 3. I noticed that after installing a number of apps from Market, it comes to a point that it's stuck at 'starting to download' only after i deleted some other apps do i notice that i can download addtl apps again. is this because of the method i did in installing the new rom?
I'm trying to re-partition an SDCard on Android, with root access. What I'm trying to do is resize the 5.9GB partition into 3GB, and then make an EXT partition with the remaining space. I can think of two ways to do this, but I'm a bit stumped in doing either of them: 1) Cross-compile GNU parted, and run it on Android to modify the filesystem in place. This would be my preferred method, but I've been trying to statically compile parted using scratchbox and haven't had much luck, and I haven't been able to dynamically compile for Android in scratchbox either. 2) Directly modify the 512 byte MBR using some utility on my computer, and then dd the file on Android. I have a tool to view the MBR (mbrwiz), but I don't know how to edit it. Does anybody have any suggestions for either, or possibly a third route?
I am currently running MoDaCo 2.5, firmware version 1.5. Been busy the past few weeks with work and what not, so I haven't been keeping up to date with the ROM updates. I checked today and found that the latest version is 3.0 and I have been reading up some threads where I read that apps2sd can be done on the phone itself now after updating to the latest ROM. Can some one give me some detailed explanations on the methods of achieving apps2sd. Would I have to partition the SD card prior to updating the ROM, or would it be advisable to do so after the update?
I already have experience with setting up virtual machines, running them and other minor tasks. Im a gamer, so I wont get rid of windows (for now at least...) but I do want to be a great programmer and to be involved with the Open-Source community Id like to know if its a good idea to do my programming in linux through a virtual machine, vs giving it a partitioned section of the HDD. Id like to know about performance pros and cons and functionality.The type of programming I intend to dive into : Android Dev, Web Dev, Desktop Dev...More Android and Web right now though. I do web designing as well, so dreamweaver is added as an "essential". But im sure I can do dreamweaver files and upload them to the server after programming in Linux...Right? And any info on IDE's in Linux for the above mentioned are appreciated, but i would prefer going the coding route and understanding the essence of whats happening "under the covers".
one is clearly the folder for my actual sdcard (sdcard2) and the other (sdcard) seems to be where all my apps and downloads go. this creates an unreliability being that the phones sdcard folder isnt connected to my removable card and thus making backups useless.
I formatted the internal SD card through CWM and now the card cannot be recognized by Win7 and it's stated as a linux file-CD Gadget USB Device, and the drives are greyed out. How do I revert the SD Card back to FAT32 format?
I'm also unable to mount it as USB storage in CWM recovery giving an error of cannot write to lumfile (no such file and directory). However, I'm able to still format the sdcard in cwm but it does not solve the problem.
Hey for anyone that needs a good memory card for their phone for music or whatever. I found a deal on a kingston class 4 8gb microsdhc for $16.95 with free shipping and no tax for most: Kingston 8GB microSDHC Card - (Class 4) - SDC4/8GB - Buy.com
today I put my sd card into my sd card reader to throw some photos on to my computer. After I was done i put the sd card back into my droid and booted it up. After booting I get a notification saying my SD card is blank, so I turn off the phone and pull the battery out. When I grabbed my SD card it burnt my hand "literally" it was that hot... Wtf?!?! I put the SD card back in the reader and the computer doesnt even see the card. Idk if anyone has heard of a similar problem b4 and knows a fix...Thanks in advance! Side Note; I work at a cell phone repair store, so I put the sd card in two other blackberry's and they say "your sd card needs to be formated or it is corrupt". I put other sd cards into my phone and i have no problems.
I have a 16gb card now. I use it mostly for music and pictures but sometimes when I go into my camera. The sd is not recognized. Sometimes I turn my phone off and then it recognizes it. Dont really want to format it again because dont want to remove the music/pictures.
I am doing my first steps on Android today... I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and I loaded it up with so many apps that I have a notification that tell me there is low space in application storage. I tried to switch apps to the SD card by the "manage application" menu. All apps on the phone show me a disabled button "Move to SD Card".
just got a galaxy s4 phone a week ago! The thing is I have my music on the phone and it is taking up a lot of space plus I love to take lots of photos. I would like to get a 64gb sd card what is the best brand? and I would perfer to get it on amazon. I see that samaung has one and sandisk I am guessing it is better to go with samsung sd card?
