Should I use SD internal memory feature on Marshmallow?

    Hi All

    I have a Samsung i9505 and just moved to Resurrection Remix 5.6.2 ROM using marshmallow and am having issues with writing to the SD card with 3rd party apps.

    I have used the ES Explorer fix and mount R/W and enabled root explorer however my 3rd party app still shows as read only. The app is doggcatcher. Whats odd I found an article to sort this problem out for Titanium backup and that worked fine. Also my camera picture and whatsapp all get saved to the SD card without issue.

    In the end I have told doggcatcher to use my internal memory but that is quickly filling up.

    I am tempted as the phone as 16GB internal memory, whether I should backup my files and choose the options where I can turn my 64gb external SD card as part of my internal memory as I never take out my SD card so that option might work for me but the reviews I am hearing are more negative than positive. I did try it out and went back to the traditional approach but thinking that maybe I didnt give it enough time.

    I used FolderMount which was great on LL and recently purchase Link2SD to move files to the SD card but my internal memory still fills up. Currently foldermount isnt compatible with MM, link2SD is but I am having a few issues with it crashing and dont find it as easily to use as foldermount.

    Any advice would be appreciated on what others have done.

    Thanks

    I personally would not.

    The reason is simple: if my phone breaks or goes bad, I want to be able to take my SD card out and put it in the new phone & rock on. If the SD card is used as an extension of internal memory, then the photos, files, music and videos are inextricably linked to my broken phone... and the card will have to be formatted before I can use it again.

    Then again, I have a Moto X Pure Edition with plenty of internal storage, so space is not as much a concern for me. I hope this helps :)

    Are you using the most recent version of Doggcatcher? The Feb 12 update apparently supports MM permissions, which may solve your problem.

    I totally agree with this, contiguous memory stacking is just asking the Devil for trouble in Advance...

    1 little burp on the phone, and everything you have on the extSDcard is lost.
