    I find a useful script from xda which will increase the internal memory of the device n the best thing is,
    It will work on any device n any rom which has root access n init.d support...
    I m just sharing work of user croniccorey from xda, all credits to him...n please thank him too on xda..here is the link for original thread.
    [SCRIPTS]CronMod-A2SD/D2EXT/INT2EXT (updated 08/06) - xda-developers

    Devs can also use theses scripts to their roms provided they give proper credits to the creator of the scripts on their respective rom thread.

    I have tested INT2EXT+ script on my own port from another device as its the best option among the all scripts.The dev also recommend it n I also recommend it.

    INT2EXT scripts are new and faster then D2EXT, They are also the first universal INT2EXT method released

    You will loose your IMEI numbers after using the script...n possibly other NVRAM related data too...

    EDIT(12/8/12, 23:32):
    Now here I come in action again, I have modded the original INT2EXT+ script and solved that IMEI n nvram related bugs...I will share here my modded scripts only, for original scripts go to the original thread.
    Other script will be modded on demand.

    1) Rooted rom with init.d support
    2) sd-ext partition


    -Mounts /sd-ext to /data
    -Leaves /data/data on internal for speed
    -Works with EXT 2/3/4 filesystems
    -ZipAligns /data/app on every boot
    -No symlinks
    -First universal INT2EXT method

    -Mounts /sd-ext to /data
    -Leaves /data/dalvik-cache on internal for speed
    -Works with EXT 2/3/4 filesystems
    -ZipAligns /data/app on every boot
    -No symlinks
    -First universal INT2EXT method

    I will share my modded script only, for original scripts go to original thread on xda, link above.

    1) INT2EXT+_Mastermind.zip (IMEI n nvram related bugs fixed, reboot after 1st boot to get IMEI)
    2) INT2EXT+deodexed_Mastermind.zip (for people facing slow system after using INT2EXT+ script)

    (Instructions based on ClockWorkMod recovery)
    -Download Appropriate Script Below
    -Place on root of your sdcard
    -Reboot Recovery
    -Select "install zip from sdcard"
    -Select "choose zip from sdcard"
    -Select "CronMod-****_signed" (Flashable script zip)
    -Select "mounts and storage" category
    -Select "format /sd-ext"

    Additional Notes:
    - After flashing n reboot u may not get network, don't worry, just give device some time to boot completely then reboot, u will get back your network n IMEIs...

    - croniccorey from xda for the original scripts
    - Thewraith420 for reporting bug on Virgin Mobile device

    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns before flashing! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    buddy he tries to say that either u download the cronMod scripts from xda or try the int2ext+_mastermind.zip from here .!!

    while, the cronMod scripts delete your imei and other nvram stuff ,, on the other hand the one given by mastermind keeps that safe.!! ;)

    guys how to do sd ext partition as it is needed b4 stepping into this method...
  12. RD07

    RD07 Well-Known Member

    firstly backup your sd card coz when u will make partition then all the data will be formatted.!! ;)
    then reboot to recovery
    - advanced
    - partition sd card
    - select ext size any 1 u want
    - then do swap size 0

    woila done.!!
    to check install link2sd and create ext2 mount scripts and after reboot you go to link2sd and click settings and then click storage info.!!
    you will see 2nd part mounted.!! :D

    No idea but did u used it on heavily loaded data partition means lot of apps installed???
    N ya, no other mountscripts should be there,if u were using link2sd then remove 11link2sd from init.d plus install-recovery.sh from /etc...n u will lose ur apps so better to factory reset after removing the scripts.
    If u were on data2sd by me then remove same install-recovery.sh from /etc plus 01e2fsck, 02data2sd n any zipalign script also from init.d...
    I never try that on heavily loaded data partition as I know empty data partition(or atleast minimal) is good for script on 1st run, take less time to move contents to new partitions...

    RD07 Well-Known Member

    yup u are right.. I am using link2sd and I have 2nd partition of 1GB. and according to the mounted info 216 mb of apps are linked ..
    so is that a too much?? idk. help me..
  15. shahabazas

    After these steps
    -Select "mounts and storage" category
    -Select "format /sd-ext"
    did you formatted sd ext if not then you need to do that as if when u select format /sd-ext then after that it will ask to choose yes from the array of no so select it and its done. Remember reboot twice but with a gap of atleast 10mins.

    The script can handle heavily loaded data partition but reason of ur bootloop is Link2SD...u need to completely remove link2sd...the scripts i mentioned.this will make ur apps useless as u have linked them...so instead lending into trouble i would suggest to backup ur apps using titanium and factory reset...then try the script...

Are they also usefull and do we need them with the script you provided as if have read about them on the original thread and was confused which one to choose and there u come in again with the answer as providing a MODDED script so please let all of us know do we need all of them or this one is enough???:thinking::thinking::thinking:

    not working with blue terror

    Edit: working on blue terror, system is little bit slow, thanks for the same.

    I also request you to do some thing for SWAP memory to increase RAM, so that system speed may be improved.

    Thanks a lot mastermind.
