SD Card Partitioning 101
Posted July 13, 2011 at 06:00 am by egzthunder1
The eternal quest to get the most out of our non expandable, very limited internal storage has been a paramount objective since the early days of mobile devices. We have, through the years, gone through solutions such as removal of bloatware, which is software bundled in our devices by manufacturers and carriers, compressing apps, having files online on systems such as dropbox or ftp, and much more. On Android, one rather big limitation was that you could originally not place apps on your external card. Thanks to app2sd scripts, this is no longer the case. In ordere to maximize the effect of these scripts, a good solution is always to partition your sd cards, but the how to do this on Android is not always common knowledge. To make this more available to others, XDA member Dredz decided to create a guide addressing this concern. The guide is straight forward, so you really cannot go wrong if you follow it correctly.
Please leave some feedback if you found this useful.
The main reason people partition is to take advantage of Apps2SD script. This allows for more internal memory and, depending on which version, control over various system settings
