Now even after linking these two apps in fact i moved FB to SD card, my memory still keeps showing low. Can you please help in this and let me know where the problem could be? The link 2 SD app storage shows the following;
1) Internal (14% free)
2) SD card (99% free)
3) SD cad 2nd Partition (94% free)
40 System (6% free)
5) Cache (99% free)
And after rooting the phone and doing all of the above my battery life has gone down considerably :-(
I need your expert help!
Hello. What happened is you're not properly linking them. One thing you nee to know is moving apps to SD isn't helping, where the app data, dalvik cache isn't moved. Another thing is you shouldn't do anything with linked apps by lin2sd from androids default system settings.
- OK, so you need to format/reset your device and wipe all user data. you can do it from recovery mode, or on-phone reset in system settings.
- Then re-install link2sd. To link files properly, you need to link them when they are in Phone's memory and NOT from the sd. If you moved an app to SD, move it back to Phone's Storage.
- Clear all cache which isn't that useful, and it appears that facebook is using alot of cache and data by surfing, these are not important.
