Manage Your Storage Space with the Open Source Mounts2SD
Not too long ago, we featured a brief guide aimed at helping users use Link2SD in order to increase apparent internal memory. The program cited, however, is only one of various options that can connect your /data and /sd-ext paths. Mounts2SD by XDA Recognized Contributor dk_zero-cool accomplishes this, and also provides users with heaps of additional functionality that you may find useful.
Starting life out as a simple SD-Ext script (without the use of symlinks), Mounts2SD’s functionality has grown considerably. In addition to the script itself, there is an app that serves as the front end, allowing you to easily view the configuration and more. It also has grown in core functionality to control your swap space, mount optimizations, cache, and much more. Naturally, the original functionality is still present. You are still able to move data between /data and /sd-ext. But now, you have additional options to move content to other folders such as /data/media or a combination of locations.
Head over to the application thread to get in on the action. And if you’d like to look at the sauce, head over to the project’s Github.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
