Increase Internal Storage on the Sony Xperia X8
Devices that ship nowadays have massive quantities of internal storage. Anywhere from 16GB to 96GB (32GB internal + 64GB external SD) depending on which device you own. While this is fantastic for anyone who keeps a lot of data stored on their devices, there are still users running older devices that don’t have so much as 1GB of internal data for things like applications. Thankfully, there are new ways every day of increasing that storage, and Sony Xperia X8 owners now have their own.
It is a very easy method to follow, and can increase your internal storage by up to 1GB or sometimes more. While this won’t wow your friends, it can be quite useful to have the extra storage laying around just in case you need it. Users will need to use a partition tool to partition their SD card, and then use the Terminal Emulator to turn it into extra internal storage. It is a quick process and shouldn’t take average users more than five to ten minutes.
