How to Add Internal Memory Capacity on Android – Internal memory is a device that is very important for smartphones, cellphones, tablets and phablets and this device is a must have for each of the devices mentioned above. If people say the term ‘vegetables without salt’, then that’s how the memory feels bad using a smartphone without memory support. Memory is generally used to store the files we produce from Smartphone devices, whether in the form of pictures, videos, or songs.
Have you ever imagined in a moment of precious moments and we want to capture those moments, but apparently you have to swallow disappointment because of limited memory capacity? This makes you miss the moment to be a memento. Well, unless it’s a large internal capacity, certainly never feel that way.
Given how important the function of this memory is better we prepare all the conditions of our memory properly. Actually the memory is automatically available or has been a package when we buy a Smartphone, but the average memory capacity provided is very limited at 4 GB and we have to buy the memory yourself if you want to increase the memory capacity.
To overcome this problem there are actually still ways to increase the capacity of internal memory on Android without spending a penny. Adding the Android internal memory at this time is not as difficult as you might imagine because with the advancement in technology, everyone can do it. To add internal memory, at this time we can do it using an application provided in the app store. The application is Link2SD.
Link2SD application is used to add internal memory which is proven to really increase memory after using this application. Link2SD can be used for all types of mobile devices, although there are also some devices that fail to use the application.
How to increase memory capacity on Android
Combat tool that you need to prepare
- Computer or laptop.
- Mini Tool Partition Software.
- SD Card 8 GB or more.
- Link2SD Android application.
- Your Android is already rooted (already rooted).
It’s a good idea before doing this tutorial, you first backup all the data in your Android to avoid failure this way.
- Install the Mini Tool Partition application on the computer that you downloaded above.
- Insert the internal memory aka SD Card into the computer (can use a card reader).
- Wait until the SD Card is detected in the Minitool partition if you have then click the micro SD, right click, select delete (the data will be lost).
- After that, you create the first partition with the FAT 32 file system which will become an external memory (adjust the large capacity), make the name as you wish, select the primary type and the FAT 32 file system then OK.
- After that, you create a second partition with the EXT 4 file system which becomes additional internal memory. Select unallocated then create partition. click YES to continue. Select Settings 1 GB for EXT 4, (not as large as 4 GB because it will be in vain, make the name of the label and select the primary type and ext 4 file system then OK.
- The next step, create a third partition with the swap memory file system (to increase RAM memory capacity). Select unallocated (the latest remaining memory) then create partition. After the notification appears click Yes to continue. Create a label name (up to you) then select the primary type and Linux Swap file system then OK.
- Then select the Apply button (wait until the process is all over).
- Install the Link2SD apk that you downloaded via the link above.
- Insert the SD Card into your Android device and run the Link2SD software
- Choose ext4.
- Reboot / restart your Android.
- Reopen Link2SD software to make sure that your memory status has been “Mounted”, if not repeat the steps above, if it fails try changing ext4 to ext2 alias ext3.
- Your memory ends when you do it well and correctly.
The benefits of the Link2SD application are not only limited to adding the capacity of internal memory, there are still many other uses, including moving files to other software aliases.
