Samsung Galaxy Mini Hack Allows Users to Choose Their Internal Memory

Some older devices, and even some current low to mid range devices can have a problem with internal storage. Between all the great Android apps out there, music, videos, pictures and other miscellany, sometimes storage can be problem when you didn’t have much to begin with.

This is a problem that XDA Member Doc_cheilvenerdi.org is looking to fix with a hack that will allow users of the Samsung Galaxy Mini to manually adjust the internal memory of their device.

The aim of the modification is to increase the internal memory of the Galaxy Mini so users can put more things on it. The process is pretty simple and involves flashing a few files over Odin. There are a few prerequisites as well. They include:

Stock Firmware installed on the Phone (custom ROMS not supported …They don’t need to!)
A microSD with two primary formatted partitions inside (the former ‘to FAT32′ and the latter ‘to EXT4′ filesystems)
Ready to Flash to your Galaxy Next via Odin

From there, it’s just downloading a few files and following the method and you’re on your way to more data on your Galaxy Mini.

For further instructions, the download links and screen shots; you can find all that and more in the original thread. Remember, as always, to make a backup before flashing anything. It’s just a smart move.
