I have a rooted LG-D520 (Optimus F3Q) running Android 4.1.2. The internal memory that came with the phone was so small that I installed an 8GB SD card. I formatted it using MiniTool Partition Wizard with 1.5GB of ext2 (the rest is FAT32). Using Link2SD I've moved many of my apps over to the ext2 partition.
I do not have a ton of apps (they just seem to keep getting bigger), yet I only have 5% space left on the ext2. My internal memory has 27% left (355MB), but I've had to delete a lot of stuff to make room. I'm only using a small portion of the 5.9GB FAT32 partition, so I'm wondering if...
- I can increase the size of the ext2 beyond 1.5GB. Is there a maximum size and, if so, what is it? Can I repartition without losing my apps & data or do I need to backup, format and start over?
- I can add another ext2 partition to my SD card and load apps into there. Can you have multiple ext2 partitions and, if so, would that work with Link2SD?
- Are there any other options ?
This has been a frustrating endeavor and it's unbelievable the lengths you have to go to in order to do basic stuff on an Android phone, so I'd appreciate any advice.
