    Link2SD on GPA19...

    I apologize if this has been posted/answered before but I can't seem to find it.

    Does anyone have or know how to get Link2SD working with an ext4 partition? I just can't get it to work. I always get an error that the device is not found when L2SD tues to create the mount scripts.

    I have verified the existence of the sdext2 folder via root explorer but for some reason it won't mount. This is with either Pete's v3 kernels or with primes kernels. I am at a loss...

    I no longer use link2sd but when I did I remember I had to use prime's link2sd preinstall .zip that he has posted. I could never get it to work without that, and a jacked-up busybox was the only other thing that would prevent me from using it. BJustut never update busybox, and use that preinstall zip from prime, and it should create that mount bootup script once you start link2sd. Not sure about any other kernels tho

    Yeah, I've used primes kernel but didn't think to do anything with busybox. I'll check on that and give it a shot. Thanks for the suggestion!

    No don't update busybox. I made that mistake and it took me forever to figure out what kept screwing up my link2sd mounting script that link2sd created but could no longer. Not sure about gpa19 but I'm on winner00's latest and last cm7 build and the busybox has never been an issue, along with all the previous versions of all the builds. Like I said on prime's kernel he has the link2sd preinstall zip to use, but I'm not sure what it exactly does... like on some other kernel maybe just manually load the right driver or whatever like ext2 or ext3.ko in /system/etc/lib/modules/ I think they're in. I think just loading the right one with a different kernel would make it work, or I could be wrong and prime's zip does something else? Regardless, either way we'll get you through this!!

    OK, got it working... did a little more sifting through search and found this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...ml#post1484728

    After doing modprobe ext4 and then mounting the partition manually in terminal emulator, I opened Link2SD and lo and behold, it was showing me my ext partition info! Now, I am not sure if it will hold up after reboot yet (and that is actually not extremely important to me just yet), but now that I know what the deal is, I am sure it will be pretty simple to get it running permanently.

    Thanks for your help meishkov! I truly appreciate it.

    I have been able to get Link2sd and DTa2sd working on every ROM i've had on my phone except Pete's, the problem I have had is that Pete's ROM's do not use init.d so the scripts as is do not get loaded at boot.

    Aha! THAT explains why the scripts won't run! I had no idea. Thank you! I think I'll probably just run it as a fat32 partition then and hopefully not have to worry about it. I have been the same in using on any ROM I've used except this one. Always wondered why and could never find an answer. At least its not me then.

    I get that every once in a while. Doesn't really bother me since I know to quick boot if the shortcuts don't show on my home screen. For the age of this phone, and the limitations, an extra hot boot isn't that big a deal... at least until I can upgrade (1 month! ).

    That is weird, you'd think all custom ROMs would use the same startup sequences so to speak to avoid confusion like this. But I guess since Pete's GPA series are mostly stock, so since stock doesn't implement That init.d folder at startup ,then that explains it.

    Yea I've given up on link2sd awhile ago as well, was sick of having to do hot boots after every single bootup, not to mention the hassle when wiping and flashing an update to that ROM or a new ROM God forbid. I like having as much internal space available as possible ,so I like the idea. I've heard a little in the past about data2sd and a few other things. What is DTa2sd? Seems like this is a dead practice and topic, that for some reason nobody wants to move all your apps and their related system files to.the SD card. My OEM class2 card I'm sure isn't up to the task tho...what about moving all the cache and dalvik-cache to the SD? Read somethin about That awhie ago, like a year ago, nothin recently. Did that turn out to be completely counter productive for our devices?
