Mad Root, Install and Use Link2SD on your X8

Hi, I just got my SONY Xperia X8.
I managed to get Link2SD working on my Xperia X8 after much research.

Credits:
suhel28 - for all his postings on All Things Root section (If you are new you MUST read first before attempting to do this).

Here is how I did it.

DISCLAIMER: Please use the info below at your own risk with no warranty of any kind.

Step 1: Backup your SD Card to your PC

Step 2: Update your Xperia X8 to Eclair 2.1 using PC Companion

Note: The latest Build Number for Xperia X8 is - 2.1.1.A.0.6.
You can check it by going to <Settings><About phone>

Step 3: Root your Xperia X8 (Eclair 2.1) - use SuperOneClickv1.7-ShortFuse

Step 3a: Root your Xperia X8
- download and unzip SuperOneClickv1.7-ShortFuse to PC Desktop
- connect Xperia X8 to PC (Do not mount)
- on your phone <goto><setting><applications> select <unknown sources>
- on your phone <goto><settings><applications><development> select <usb debugging>
- Launch SuperOneClick -> click <Root>
- you will see - <not successful - is your phone software higher than 2.0?>
- click <yes> and then <success> & <test su> message

Step 3b: If you are successful in ROOTING your phone - SuperUser app will be installed to your Xperia X8
Step 3c: If your are not successful - check your PC <device><usb> to see if your phone is recognized by your PC (to troubleshoot - download X8 drivers from SE website <install drivers> then try <Launch><SuperOneClick>

SuperOneClickv1.9.1-ShortFuse

Step 4a: Switch off your Xperia X8 and pull out your SD Card
Step 4b: Format your SD card to FAT32 (I am using stock 2GB) - recommend you use an adapter (I used a SD CARD Adaptor)

Partitioning Tool:
Partition Wizard for Windows

Step 5a: Partition SD card into 2 FAT32 partitions (e.g. 1.37GB & 500MB).
Step 5b: Set both partitions to PRIMARY -> [Do not name your partitions]

Note: 1.37GB is now your phone storage and 500MB will be used by Link2SD app - so don't put stuff into that 2nd partition

NOTE: According to some users from the XDA-Developers site it is not advisable to set the 2nd partition greater than 1GB. Experiment at your own risk

Step 6a: Put SD Card back into your Xperia X8 and restart
Step 6b: Connect Xperia X8 to PC - Mount SD Card

Step 7a: Copy your data back into your SD card's biggest partition.
Step 7b: Copy Link2SD v1.5.3 apk to the root of SD card

Note: You can get Link2SD APK from here :- Link2SD

Step 7c: UnMount your Phone (SD Card) from your PC

Step 8: Goto Market download Astro File Manager (if you don't have a File Manager)

Step 9: Launch Astro and install Link2SD

Step 10a: Launch Link2SD -> Root access required (SuperUser -> allow access) - within the Link2SD app, select the apps <click> that you want to move to SD Card and press <Create Link>

Step 10b: If your select an app that has already been linked -> you can use <Remove Link> to put the app back into your phone's memory.


IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
1) After you have "MOVED" all your apps to SD Card you MUST to reboot your phone in order to "See" and "Use" the apps again.
2) Apps that cannot be used or get a "Forced Quit" dialogue box will have to be reinstalled and then move again to SD Card using Link2SD app.
3) System apps cannot be moved to SD Card. You can REMOVE them by using Root Explorer app
4) If you want your installed apps to be updated via Market - Launch Link2SD & Hit the <Market Fix> button (ONLY after you have moved your apps to the SD Card and reboot your X8)
5) Use Link2SD to check your storage info - if your use the "Settings" option on your phone, you will not be able to see the 2nd partition's info.
6) When you mount your Xperia X8 be CAREFUL not to copy files into or remove files from the 2nd partition.

And that's it. Have Fun!!!

Hmmm...

I think it's about personal preference.
For a 4GB SD Card I would set my 2nd partition to 900MB.

cheers

HI,

I think the partition app allows you to partition you SD card even if the SD card is in your phone. I have done it using Disk Utility but its a Mac O/S Snow Leopard Utility.

You can try...

Step 1
<connect><mount> your Xperia X8 to PC using USB cable
check to see if your phone's SD card is accessible via the PC

Step 2
<launch> Partition Application and <select> the SD card
<partition> the SD card into 2 partitions.

and that's it...

cheers

Hi,

I don't think wifi connection has anything to do with Link2SD.
Try to read the previous post regarding wifi issues.

Link2SD does not require ext2 partition.
Do check if you still have some data stuff in your Android folder and .android_secure folder.
Do check if your partitions have been named. Link2SD does not work with named partitions.

Hi,

I think you have a drivers issue... download drivers, enable usb debugging and do not mount your phone's sd card.

it should work.

second partition cannot be seen, the phone's Link2SD app uses it.
so if you are able to transfer your apps to your sd card then there is no problems.

No you don't need custom rom. You just need to follow ALL the instruction above.

Hi,

you might want to try to mount your SD Card with your phone.
Launch your partition manager and then create a partition.

Hi,

there are a few thing to take note.
1) both partitions must be formated FAT32
2) both partitions MUST NOT be named
3) if you are trying to access your memory card from your phone only the main partition will be recognised by your phone.

cheers

Hi all,

I have implemented the mentioned process successfully till step 5.
The problem is I am unable to make both the partitions to primary..either of one is becoming 'logical' automatically if i choose the other as primary..
Please help me out on this

Thnx

Raghu

Hi all,
I managed to install and use Link2SD app, all the installed apps (4 or 5 peces) are moved to SD card's Ext2 partition, but still I get the message that there is not enough space to install the new app . Free internap capacity is about 50Mb. What can be the problem?? Thanks for the answers in advance.

Message from the dark side there is...

One silly question. Can I format SD card fully due pc and than install system due PC companion( repair phone) I've rooted phone , already have done reset to factory sett.
I've been messing with xrecovery(installing/uninstalling) and when I wanted to install again (I had busybox) it said that it can not install cause it was installed already.
I know I've uninstalled it for sure. I got confused 'cause there were several xrecovery and several ways to install it.
BTW my phone :XPERIA x8 E15i

Hi,

your SD Card should have 2 partitions... first partition to store your stuff (eg. music, videos, books etc...) and second partition use by the phone to store installed apps.

If you have 2 partitions on a 2GB SD Card... consider how you would want to partition your sd card in terms of storage space for your media and storage for your phone apps. Of course a bigger SD Card would resolve this issue.

I hope this clears up the confusion.

cheers
