      Well, been using mine for a couple of weeks and i have had no issues. However, you need to know that the RAM at about 290MB is rather small and kind of put a cap on the type and number of apps you can install.

      Also, i will advice that anytime you want to transfer files to the SD card, you should power down your device and use an adapter to do so. Insert the SD card back into the phone before powering up again. Just a safety precaution.

    Can I revert back any time? Suppose, I want to return to the state as what the phone was before. Can you please explain how can I do that?

    I have completed everything successfully. But after going to my phone storage, I saw that the phone’s internal storage is still 170MB. U said that I will not see the difference via my phone,
    but if so, then how would I be able to understand that the trick is working?

      If you have successfully completed the process, the physical internal memory size of your Galaxy Y WILL NOT INCREASE. Instead after the internal phone memory is used up, it will automatically link the internal phone memory to the created partition.

        I done all process that u suggest on my Samsung Duas S6102 But
        when I open Link2sd and select ext3 then press “ok”
        its s showing
        root access warning
        link2sd could not obtain root access.

      To prevent bricking your device, i will suggest you restore your phone to factory default and use your phone to format the memory card. Then start the process all over.

  10. Hi,
    I am using Samsung Galaxy Y duos GT-S6102 model. Can I still use Skin of CWM Skin1980-GT-S5360+CWM.zip for this procedure or there will be some other skin for my device!?

    I understand that before following step number 2 as per your main message, I need to follow ROOT/UNROOT procedure. Please guide as I am not too tech savy…

    For memorial problem in s6102 duos , i have find a solution without root :

    1-) Write *#*#4636#*#* on the screen , then place the mobil to “WCDMA only”

    2-) save all your data’s and the guide which are important for you
    3-) Then for make a format write *2767*3855# . on the screen.
    4-) Use only 8 GB SD-Card

    You will see , you will have much more place in the memorial on your phone…

    Hey guys, I am also having SGY Duos. But I increased the internal memory by another method.
    1. Root your phone ( If you don’t know what is rooting dont read further steps)
    2.Install Link 2 SD app from google apps on your phone
    3. Install one software. Mini tool partition wizard on ur PC ( free on net)
    4.Partition ur memory card through this software ( Both parts primary FAT and EXT2 )
    5. Start Link 2 SD, Create mount scripts and Link all apps to SD card
    Done

    Everyone may have a unique experience while carrying out this procedure. This may be as a result of existing apps on your phone that may be in conflict. Preferrably, before you start out at all, restore your phone to factory settings, then carry out the rooting procedure as explained on this blog. All the files needed are included. Restrict yourselves to only the procedures explained here and you should have no issues.

        Ok, using link2sd I got first my internal memory with free space of around 103 MB out of
        170 MB, then by time, it decreases to now around 50 MB only as free space!!!! I
        have selected the autolink, re-link lib files and re-link dex files at boot,
        autolink settings with all of those three checkboxes as app file, dalvik cache
        file and library files….i cannot understand why this happened and right now I want
        to stay always with free /available system storage of around 110 MB. Note that I
        have created ext2 partition on my class 4 Samsung SD Card with 1.5 GB Capacity….Hope

    Nice write up Wale.

    From reading some of these comments I would advise that if you do not have a good understanding of computers/technology i.e. you do not understand rooting, partitioning, etc .. you should not try this stuff and just live with your small internal memory limitation and don’t give grief to Wale who is not responsible for others’ ignorance or problems caused by such inadequacies ..

    Thank you for this very nice information and resources. I followed this procedure and all went well. I then tried to copy back all the data I had on my SD card prior to this procedure but now when I attach the SD card to the PC it says “not formatted”. I can read the SD through the KIES software, but is there no way just to use a simple card reader?

    hey Intelligents…..Use your brain before gonna do some thing…don’t fell in the well like black sheep…..hooooo….

    1st take backup ur iMportant files to ur PC or another memory card

    2nd thing backup ur contacts and phone storage important files,because while ROOTing if you mistakenly select wrong option it will delete all files…

    3rd main and Important Thing is-You must Install this application on “Link2SD” on your phone memory dont download it on your SD memory..(If you downloaded it on ur Sd memory,while “Rooting” all the files may deleted in SD so it cant access “LINK2SD” after all steps),this is main problem who those below Sheeps not did carefully…..

    if your phone memory is full,try to delete some application,then you should download this “LINK2SD” app on phone memory…or else those steps wont work out for you even you may tried 1000 times…

    All the best…(y) (y)
