Exclamation Still no room to install apps

I have recently bought a new micro SD for my Samsung Mini. I have successfully partitioned the SD card into 2 primary sections - 1.2GB for apps (ext2) and the other 13.0GB for media files.
The reason I got the SD card was to remedy the really small amount of internal storage. However, after installing the new card I can no longer install anymore apps!
I have Link2SD installed and followed these instructions: http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tu...de-to-link2sd/

Task Manager shows the following info:
Storage 163MB used out of 181MB
External SD card 230MB used out of 12.99GB
I don't understand why I can't see the ext2 partition and, more importantly, why the phone still thinks it has no more room to install further apps.

Can anybody help?

What does the Storage Info in the actual link2SD app say ? Did you get the 'mount script created' message and did you reboot your phone ?

Thanks Juxxize,
When I open Link2SD it shows 4 apps - including Link2SD - as being mounted on the SD card. The 'mount script created' appeared and I did reboot the phone; it is now no longer showing. I can't see where to find the storage info within the app.

I should add that I can now install apps, the apps are successfully stored on the SD card so Link2SD is working fine, but I get a low storage space warning from the phone. The main problem is because the phone's storage space is so low I cannot receive any text messages!

To get storeage info up on the link2sd app open the app , press the menu key and storage info should be there next to settings . I found after installing link2sd that the storage info in the app it's self is the only place on my phone I can get accurate storage / memory stats ( probably because of the changes link2sd makes ) I'm on the galaxy y so your and my phone should be pretty similar memory wise so your storage should look something like this. It should show internal , sd card, sd card 2nd partition system and cache.
link2sd doesn't move apps to the sd card it links them to that 2nd partition which sort of tricks the phone into thinking it has more internal ( I know that's not a very technical description lol )
Have you manually linked all the apps ? rather than moved them to the sd card , to manually link them open link2sd select a non system app and select create link not move to sd card ( see the pic below ) Warning I think the app needs to be on the internal memory to be properly linked via link2sd so you may need to uninstall your app and reinstall them one by one linking them as you go.

Juxxize,

Many thanks - your instructions to create a link have worked a treat!

Just one other small problem, I keep getting the following message:

Su binary outdated - after I tap to update it then tells me it is downloading the manifest. I then get the following:
Sorry
The app Superuser (process.com.noshufou.android.su) has stopped unexpectedly.
Please try again.


I then tap on Force Close to get rid of the message.

This is more of an annoyance rather than anything crucial, but it would be great to be rid of the message permanently.

Cool that's great .Sometimes I get them force close messages too I just leave it a a couple of seconds and try again but if it's only happeneing with your super user app and no other app it may be a problem with the superuser app it's self maybe try another one but first I'd try clearing the data from the superuser app ,after abit of googleing it seems to be error message to do with super user perrmissions so by clearing the data the apps who need super user permission will have to ask again and hopefully fix the crashing problem it's worth a go easier than installing a different super user app for sure to clear the data go to Menu-Settings- Applications- Manage- find the superuser app in the list and tap the clear data button.
When I have apps mis-behaving I always try the clear data option before I try anything else like re-installing the app .
I'm so glad you've sorted the link2sd issue out I love my phone soooo much more now I can actually put apps on it with the updates that come from google ( like that horrid hangout update that wiped out aload of my memory and if I hadn't have been rooted I'd have been stuck with it) android phones memory gets full before you do owt with them.

I decided that clearing the data was a safer and easier option than uninstalling the super user app. I no longer get the annoying message after updating one of my other apps!
Once again, thanks for your input and help.

All the best,

Torres
