Can anyone help me how to transfer...??

  • I wouldn't do that ,swap memory on android phones is pointless you will make your phone slower and decrease the life time of your internal storage ,I will post a better answer when I log in from my PC ,on the other hand zram is a good alternative for android with low ram but it needs to be compiled in the kernel and the best compression algorithm to use with it is LZ4 ,like I said I will post a more detailed unswer later this is just to comment and give you some key words to Google May 21, 2015 at 12:18

You will need Root access for this!

(First You Need To Take Backup from CMW/TWRP)

  • Download MT657x Data Repartition Tool3.0A
  • Install app and choose the size you want to swap (e.g 1GB) from internal sdcard.
  • Select OK.
  • Reboot to recovery.
  • Wipe cache/dalvik cache.
  • Factory reset.
  • Restore Backup.
  • Reboot .

  • DONE
