    @jjnagy

    I don't know. Maybe someone more technically inclined can address it. It worked for me doing the steps above. I only did this once. We need more people to try and confirm that they can duplicate this process with success. Especially non techies. My suggestions are to keep trying the process. Good luck!

    If you don't understand why you are doing what you're doing, read up on it. If you can't find the answer here google it. If you can't risk screwing up your tablet, play it safe. Mine is a learning toy. I have a reliable phone. I like a challenge. I like to make things work!

    link2sd for dummies (like me) works great!

    @50cals- I just went into the the development section and looked for a link2sd thread. I didn't find one. I was originally posting in the apps2sd thread and was directed to post here in the alt to apps2sd- link2sd. So What am I missing? To me, this is the appropriate section. I was not aware that this was posted a week ago with such simplistic instructions.

    Hooray! I finally got it working.

    My problem was I had still been using link2sd v1.3.0 and it was not working, switched to link2sd v1.3.1 and finally saw my ext2 partition and asked to reboot and install script and works now!

    Thanks, Buzzman and Bakpinar!

    good job jjnagy!! Glad you figured it out. Enjoy!

    @zuc- I've been playing with this tablet 2 months now. There is a definite learning curve. Don't give up. Take a break, get re-motivated, and try again when your ready! Lot's of help here. (and google what you don't have a clue about)

    Can anyone help me with the move the /data/dalvik-cache move for my S7-104 Best Buy model w/8g internal sdcard I already have C62B011,ext2 and link2sd working. I want and have read that will get me 60M of internal memory for apps. However, I am now confused about which cache mod to use for my setup. Thanks

    This works great and i appreciate the work you have done.

    I did find a typo in step #2 that may trip up some people. You have "mke2f" and it should be "mke2fs".

    Thanks again.

    Hi- appreciate the input but I didn't type that. It was copied and pasted from pvella's 3 part check list for apps2sd and I copied and pasted into the command line as posted and adapted for link2sd procedure. Don't take this as defensive on my part! We have to figure out why it worked both ways. Maybe this step isn't even necessary?

    Kev or pvella- feel free to chime in.

    I'm not a techie. I took command lines from other techies who knew what they were doing. That's why we need people who try this link2sd for dummies to post how they did. I only did this once- said thank god it worked and posted. However, some people are having success with it as is.

    Anyone trying this link2sd- skip this step and see if the market app will recognize your ext2 partition..

    If not please report which line you used to get the ext2 partition recognized.

    Thanks. BUZZMAN

    I have been using

    busybox mke2fs /dev/block/vold/179:18

    when I make the partition EXT2. Now I have only done this a couple times, twice on my tablet as I formated my internal card one time and it erased the partition and once when I did this on my wifes tablet. If I am redoing this after I flash a new ROM since the partition is already created I skip this step. I however do format that partition to make sure it is clean before I start moving stuff to it.

    I don't know enough to say if this is needed or not, I was just following what was in the instructions as well because the people who came up with this know a lot more than I do. A LOT!

    I'm not sure whose instructions I copied from- yours or pvella's.. but its in the middle of the line..it's not like I could have highlighted wrong. I like where I'm at right now so I don't want to redo link2sd. Any takers?
