How to transfer applications to the SD card Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.
Recently I got a smartphone Samusng Galaxy Y S5360. The device is from a class of budget smartphones, which are called - "cheap and angry". ИAnd of course, for such a price there is little built-in memory, only 190 MB. Install 5-6 applications and everything, hello, "internal phone memory is full" or "system memory is missing" or "Low memory android" and so on. But on this occasion there is nothing to be upset, since the phone supports an external SD-memory card up to 32 GB. The phone has applications that can be transferred to the SD card by standard phone tools and there are applications that do not support transfer to external storage media. Here we will try to persuade them to move to a new place of residence. Where do we start? Naturally, with the rights of the superuser on the phone. Any changes in the operating system of the smartphone are made only with superuser rights. First of all, you need to make sure that the phone is at least 60% charged. Next, you need to enable USB debugging (Settings & gt; Applications & gt; Development & gt; USB debugging). Next, download from the forum xda-developers.com file update.zip. This is the necessary kernel module android and the program is a superuser installed on the phone. Copy this file to the memory card to the root of the partition. Disconnect the phone from the computer and turn it off. Press and hold simultaneously the volume increase key, the main key (middle button) and press the power button to load the phone into recovery mode. Use the volume control button (volume +/-) to go to the install zip from sd card and press the power button (you can use the main button). Select the file update.zip. I went through the process of installing the program. After installation, the phone will automatically reboot and a program will appear in its applicationssuperuser.
Now you need to prepare an SD card for transferring applications. We connect the phone to the computer (it's better to the laptop, God forbid, turn off the electricity :-)), create a folder on your computer (for example, sdrecovery) and copy the contents of the SD card there. Next, you need to format the memory card. To do this, I set it to computer free program MiniTool Partition Wizard. How to work with this program can be found on the Internet, so I will not describe this moment. How to format the card? Under the ext2 partition, we allocate 1GB, under swap 512MB (unless of course this SWAP is created, in principle, it is not necessary to create it, I created it for experiments), the rest is under fat32. Total, fat (approximately) 32-1-0,512 = 30,48GB. If the 16GB card is recounted for her. Conversion without a swap partition is understandable. Of course, before this, it would be nice to read articles on the logical structure of disks and file systems. Then you will clearly understand what actions are being taken. But this is at will. Many people already know this for a long time.
Attention! The sequence of partition creation should be as follows:
1) Create & nbsp; Primary fat32 partition (it must be created first)
2) Create the primary Partition ext2 (it must be created second). Why the second? Apps Link2SD and others, App2SD, jnly work with the second partition of the partition table. Who ext2 ? Unlike ext3, ext2, the non-logged file system and read / write accesses to the memory card will be smaller, which will reduce the wear of the memory card. Attention. After formatting, partition ext2 in Windows will not be visible. Only the fat section of the corresponding size will be visible.
3) Create a partition linuxswap (I created for future perversions :-), generally you can not create).
After formatting, copy back to the first partition (fat 32) on the card files from the folder sdrecovery. Reboot the smartphone.
To transfer applications, I used the Link2SD program from Google play. In my humble opinion - this is the best program for transferring applications to the SD-card. The description and instructions on how to work with the program is available at Google play and on the Internet. At the first start, the application will prompt you to select the partition to mount. We select the ext2 partition and after rebooting the mount we reboot the phone. To free phone memory, you need to open a portable application in the program and click "send to the 2nd section of the SD card". If you click "migrate to SD card" then only the .apk application will be transferred, and the cache of executable files will remain in the folder dalvik-cache, in the phone's memory. Accordingly, the phone's memory will remain a busy cache. Saving the application on the 2nd section of the SD card, I managed to free the phone's built-in memory by 50%.
And yet, after a lapse of time, and almost a year has passed, I decided to add a little to this note. I recently reached the limit of installed applications. The smartphone is not rubber. And I had to choose the applications that I need and remove the unused ones. The thing is that some applications are installed in the system memory of the phone and can not be removed by usual methods. There is a proverb. If you can not but really want, then you can. You can remove these applications by using the Root App delete strong> program. However, you need to do this very carefully and think everything over. The program has hints that you can delete and what not. My advice to you is, before you delete an application, read about it and think whether it is necessary for you or not. If you uninstall the application that came with the firmware from the system memory, then you can restore it only by refreshing the phone again. I, for example, think that I do not need Google Plus and Hangouts apps on my smartphone (it is put as an update to the Google Talk program). They just eat the memory (and Hangouts is loaded there in priority). With Google Plus, everything is simple-you can easily delete it. Hangouts-Update an outdated Google Talk application. In order to remove it, you must first uninstall Hangouts in the usual way, and then delete Google Talk (it goes along with the phone's firmware) using the Root App delete program. To do this, select the "pro" mode and delete.
Also, with the official firmware are the application "Google Maps" and "Street View." All these applications have been updated through Google Play. I searched using Root Explorer where these applications are installed. It turns out that all these applications in the smartphone are in two copies - the old applications in the system memory and their updates, which I transferred to the SD-card. Therefore, I first removed the updates to these applications in the usual way. Then, using the program Root App delete deleted the old applications from the system memory. And re-installed all these applications from Google Play with the transfer to the SD-card. It freed up some more memory. However, I do not recommend reinstalling other applications, for example, Google Play itself. In general, before all such manipulations, it would be nice to make a backup copy of the firmware of the phone to the SD-card.
Another interesting thing in the network.
