    Hello Friend,
    • I thought the modern ROMs specifically made use of this for OS related reasons but it appears to be for internal storage space issues only that I can find info.
    • Without the sd-ext extension you could use apps2sd but the data from your apps would still take up internal memory and at some point you would run out of internal memory.
    • With sd-ext and a program like link2sd (or s2e which I am not familiar with), you could store the app and also the app data on the sd-ext partition. Obviously for some games, this would make a big difference.
    Thanks for contacting......

    Dear Friend,

    Partitioning SD card means your SD card is partly devided many slots like movie , emage, other option. and when you set downloding in SD card then apps would download in desire slot in the sd card. Thats means no internal memory of your phone is use. But patitioning does not means that your intarnal memory would incrise. It would halp you to find out desere location for desere apps.

    It does not increase your phones internal memory but you can create an extension on the partition you have made on your Sd card and you can use it as an external memory to install apps and data to it so that u have space always left on your phones internal memory so that u don't run out memory. If you are running a Cynogenmod rom then go for Simple2ext otherwise link2sd both are the best in market.

    Dear friend, Partition of SD card is not necessary. But partition of memory card, (1) Do not increase internal memory (2) The speed increases (3) time taken to open the card decreases ( it suddenly opens)

    My friend,
    Partition it an activity which allows the user to place all his files to the desired location of sd card. Under partition the user could divide many different slots on to the sd card as image, movies and any one other. When the user download any content he could place that on to the desired destination through the partitioned slots, the meaning is the phone memory would not be used to do that work. Remember that partition doesn't mean that your internal memory is increasing.
    Hope this advice will help you.

    Thanks to be contacted....

    1) If we partition the SD card into ext partition---ext2, ext3, or ext4 we can move the apps from internal memory to that new partition, the phone still treats that the apps are in the internal memory.... This way we can increase the size of internal storage....

    2) If we add a Linux swap partition to the SD card then it will be used to speed up the processing of the mobile. Its similar to adding SWAP memory while installing Ubuntu....

    These are the major benefits of partitioning an SD card, its not necessary but may be helpful at times....

    Partitiong of memory card does not increases memory

    Though boot time increases and speed increases..

    Partitioning will help to save data in unique manner

    The three partition names are

    1)Boot type(FAT32)

    2)File System type(EXT3)

    3)START_HERE type(EXT3)
