How it works:
Linking apps
Link2SD uses a secondary partition on your SD card and uses it as another segment of internal storage.
Link2SD moves apk, dalvik-cache (.dex), lib and internal data files into this partition, which the OS mounts on boot, and creates a symbolic link in the original location.
This retains the file structure that the system expects but with the bulk of the data moved to the SD card.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
On devices that have emulated SD card, obb and external data folders are located in the internal storage, not in the external (real) SD card.
Link2SD moves these folders to the 1st or the 2nd partition of your external SD card (depending on your selection) and with the bind option of the mount command remounts the file hierarchy at external SD card while it is still available at the original location.

What you need:
Linking apps
– root permission
– second partition on SD card

You should have two partitions on your SD card and both should be primary.

You need to use a non-FAT file system (ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs) on your 2nd partition in order to link app's private data files. Because the FAT file system (FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT) does not support UNIX file ownership or permissions and will cause a security breakdown of app's private files.
Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
– root permission

Second partition on SD card is optional, folders can be moved to the 1st or 2nd second partition of the SD card.

Link2SD also provides native App2SD feature of Android OS. It can move any user apps to SD card (force move), with batch moving capability.

Link2SD is a free (ad supported) app, you can upgrade to Link2SD Plus to remove ads and get additional features.

    • you should make a second partition on your SD card before applying Link2SD.. download minitool partition wizard first then just google the procedure..

  • Thank you Thank you! I have tried downloading so many app to SD apps on my black pandigital novel, and none of them would install. Yours installed flawlessly (downloaded to sd card in pc then put card in tablet an installed through file manager). Unfortunately, I still can’t just tap a few buttons to get an app from internal to external because of my tablet (not your app). But I still get the file info I need and your app lets me uninstall some of the bloatware that came with my tablet that other apps wouldn’t let me uninstall. (I have rooted my device, so with super user and ZK4 I could do that using your app.) Thank you for all your hard work. I’ll spread the word to other black pandigital novel ereader users.
