So I partitioned my 32gb micro sdhc card with USB cable, both partitions FAT32, the bigger one set as active, and when I start Link2sd it doesn't ask me to select the file system of the second partition in order to create a script there and use it as install location, even though it shows up in the storages in Link2sd menus... How can I make it recognize the second partition, do I have to format the sd card with card reader, because I don't have one right now

According Link2SD page, also the second partition should be primary:

You should have two partitions on SD card and both should be primary. The first FAT partition is your standard SD card storage. The second partition is used for application files and can be ext2, ext3, ext4 or FAT32.

Check if the second partition (the first one can not be used to link apps) is primary and not an extended partition.

  • Yes, they are bot set to primary Jun 27 '13 at 21:18
  • Still nothing, tried to format it again, restarted phone, and still Link2sd does not ask me what file system is the second partition in order to set it as install location and then restart the phone Jun 27 '13 at 22:12
  • Is your phone rooted?

  • yes it is, but it turned out to be something else, I'll answer Jun 28 '13 at 7:23

Apparently it was some bug in the app itself, I had to clink the options, go to More, and there select Recreate Scripts, then it asked me what file system was the second partition, restarted, and it worked just fine after it. And all of that without card reader, like they are suggesting everywhere


The second partition has to be formatted as either ext2, ext3 or ext4, if you're on a custom ROM.
