    [WORKING] Ext2sd on Micromax A73

    Have you guys get irritate with the low internal memory and wont be able to install the big games or all the apps needed by you now you wont have to think anything before installing anything now you can have all your apps installed on the Micromax A73 no need to think of internal storage.

    Disclaimer/Warning:

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY HARM DONE TO YOUR PHONE USING THIS . DONT BLAME ME IF YOUR PHONE TURNS INTO A PAPERWEIGHT/BRICKED USING THIS. DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK.


    Requirements:

    1. Sd card of atleast 2GB or more probably of higher class as it will be fast.
    2. CWM Recovery installed.
    3. Pulled ext2.ko module from any ROM or download it from the download link.
    5. Root explorer/File manager with Root explorer.
    6. Link2sd download it from play store.

    Credits:

    1. beerzar for sharing his CWM Recovery.
    2. Ninad Chaudhari and Varun Chitre for motivating all A73 users.
    3. Maastermind1024, AmarZo T DAs, Dark God and Aayushdutta for being with me whenver i needed their help and letting me try all my ways what i have tried and tested.
    4. My Office as i have downloaded all the required software and tools by using the internet of my office.
    5. Myself for having an urge to get all the big apps and games installed on my Micromax A73 without thinking of internal storage.
    6. To all of those whose name i haven't mention here who have helped me in one or the other way in reaching my goal to get ext2sd on my Micromax A73.
    7. To all the respective Devs for the applications and the softwares what i have used and the links what i have provide.

    Installation:

    1. Partition sd card by CWM recovery before that please make a backup of your data as it will erase all the data from your sd card. If you have previously partioned sd card then no need to this once again.
    2. Download and Copy ext2.ko to /system/lib/modules using root explorer.
    6. Long press on the ext2.ko file select permission and then tick all the check boxes.
    7. Reboot phone.
    7. Install Link2sd and then create Mount scripts by selecting ext2 as i did it for ext2 however you can try ext3, ext4 also if they work for you.
    8. Then in Link2sd settings please check that all the necessary things are checked like Auto link, Auto link settings, Install location and so on.
    9. Reboot phone and open Link2sd and then check in your Settings if you have the sd card 2nd partion mounted and if says sd card 2nd not mounted then press settings key and go to more and there you will have an option to recreate mount scripts select it and once you get the display message as mount scripts created then reboot phone and check back you will have the sd card 2nd partition mounted.
    10. Now install any game or app it will be linked to sd card 2nd partition.

    Enjoy... ;)

    Do one thing first download Android assisstant with 18 feature and in that you find a feature to backup the apps so backup your apps and then copy that folder to your comp and then partition ur card and once u partition ur card after that perform the steps provided by me over here and after that install your apps once again.

    Select 1024 n 0 n sd can d pe poore apps move to kar sakte hai par partition se wo jo apps ko phone memory me install karne ki zarurat hoti hai wo sirf sd card se link hote hai aur agar sd card format b kiya to b jab tak partition format nahi karo apps rehte hai aur isse bahut saare apps install hone ke bad b phone slow nahi hota.

    You all need to first provide the root browser or file manager root access and after that you need to paste the ext2.ko file to /system/lib/modules then long press on the ext2.ko file select permission and then tick all the check boxes and then reboot the phone and then go to link2sd and then create mount scripts choosing ext2 and again reboot the phone and its done.
