    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to upgrade to a bigger storage: from 8gb to 32gb micro SD.

    My phone is a rooted Sony Xperia V and I am using Link2sd app to install my apps to my micro SD card instead of my internal storage.

    Please help. I have no experience regarding this. Can someone tell me a step-by-step procedure?

    Thank you. :)

    What I would do is plug phone into pc.Copy all the content to your pc(Like a new folder).Then unplug phone from pc and turn phone off.Then pull 8gb. card out and place 32gb. card into phone.
    Turn phone on and make sure phone mount the card.Then plug phone back into pc,And move everything back.

    Will it work just like that? I thought it might be more complicated since the apps were installed in the SD? But I just i'll try that if I became impatient. :D Thanks

    The method I described above is how I put my 32gb.sd card in my Force from a 16gb.

    Tip: :)

    If you haven't got a PC available and your device has USB OTG. You can copy everything from one SD to the other just by using the device itself.

    That would work. Just make sure to enable seeing hidden files and folders to make sure you get everything.
