    I have my Reverb rooted and I installed Link2SD. I have a 16gb sd and I partitioned it with 2 partitions as it states. When I try to move apps to SD it comes back with "install_failed_insufficient_storage" message on every app. It's seeing the 2nd partition and all appears to be well. I can see the 2nd partition in Root Explorer as well. Any ideas?

    Having the exact problem.
    I made the 2nd partition PRIMARY, with Fat32.
    I see it there on root explorer and Link2sd app as well.
    I have 3 gigs sitting there.
    But having the same "install_failed_insufficient_storage" as MadMike getting.

    when I started Link I check Fat32 for storage, should I have check EXT2 or 3 instead?

    jgraves12,
    Thanks. :D

    That was the problem, works like it should. I tested with loading an app from the market, showed right up in the notification bar that linking to Sd.
    checked my storage info and shows in the 2nd partition.

    Thanks again.

    Can you root the phone if you installed the LK2 update?

    Hey bro, how did you partition your SD? Do you just format to fat32 on Windows? Or do I have to use Linux and mess with partition tables? I've tried with no luck. Also, when you guys say RE sees it, where? Should be a directory under /data no? Does it show a linked arrow --> after the directory name? Thanks

    I partitioned my sd with Easeus in windows, FAT32. Create 2 primary partitions on the sd. Link2SD will recognize it if you are rooted. It creates a directory under /data called /sdext2 or something like that. Link2SD will shows the programs as linked when you do them. As well, when you install new programs it will display a notification that it's linking and then another to say that it's linked/moved or not.

    Did L2SD have to recreate the mountscripts, or did it automount right away?

    hello guys, did anyone is very expert in link2SD apps?.....Here i am facing some problem when i am using Link2SD. I found that the apps being move to the SD card will totally become lagging or even freeze when i run the apps. I have doing many research in online, but none of them can tell me the exact solution. I just want to know that why the apps become lag or even freeze when it move to micro sd card?....what is the solution for this thread?.....Actually i am planning to buy the fastest sd card such as (SANDISK extreme plus, 32gb, UHS-1, class 10), did this micro sd is suitable for my phone(sony xperia j)?

    I hope that the above question can be solve soon. thanks, your ans is much move appreciate.

    JOHN
