Script Partitions SD Card Without Losing Fat32 Contents

Ever tried to use App2SD+ or Link2SD? Then you most probably stumbled upon a pretty tricky step in the installation process—partitioning your SD Card. On some ROMs it requires third party software, which often leads to incompatibility issues.

Moreover, partitioning an SD-card requires you to format it first, which inevitably erases all data on it. And though moving 200 MB of data to your computer isn’t that much of a problem, you probably don’t want to think about having to move more than 8 GB of music, movies and apps from a 16 GB card.

Thanks to a script by XDA Forum Member unCoRrUpTeD, you can now repartition your SD Card without losing data. All you need to do is push a package to the /tmp folder on your SD-card! To get started, make your way to the original thread. For those without adb experience, take a quick look at the All In One Guide to ADB first.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
