    Hey guys,

    I'm having a tough time formatting an SD card to work with Link2SD. I currently don't have access to a pc and I'm stuck trying to find an alternative to Mini Tools Partition Wizard.

    Thanks in Advance

    The partitioning tool I'd recommend is GParted. The simplest way to use this on a Mac is probably to make a virtual machine, either using GParted live or any Linux live download you like (Linux live distros will include it to allow you to partition the drive and install linux, but you could use it to partition your sd card instead). If you don't have tools for making virtual machines, you can download VirtualBox for free.

    If you are planning on making an ext3 or ext4 format partition (linux formats) rather than fat32 then I would recommend GParted rather than MiniTool even if you had a PC: I've seen a lot of people make ext partitions with MiniTool then have to remake them with GParted before they would work.
