How to increase internal memory on your HTC Explorer.

In this video I will show you how to increase internal memory of HTC Explorer or Create a partition in your SD Card to use it as Internal memory.


[Please make sure you have completed all of the following before starting the tutorial.]
On your PC:
-Download and install MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition onto your PC or laptop.
-Click here to download
On your Explorer:
-This app needs root privilege
-Install Link2SD from Android Market onto Explorer. It is available for free.
-You now need to create a secondary partition on your microSD memory card that will enable you to use Link2SD.
-There is no need to wipe your memory card when going through this process, just ensure you have at least 0.5GB to 1.0GB of free space to make it worthwhile.

a) Connect your handset to the PC via USB and then launch MiniTool. You should see the details pop up under 'Disk 2′.

b) Click on the memory card under Disk 2 in Mini Tool and then in the left pane, press 'Move/Re-size Partition'. On the blue bar under 'Size and Location', move the right arrow towards the left to create the size of the secondary partition desired. In the video above I created a secondary partition with 1 GB [1024 MB] of space. This value can also be typed in manually in 'Unallocate Space After'. Now click on OK

c) Once this is done you should see that your memory card is now split into two partitions under Disk 2 of Mini Tool. Right click this new partition and then press 'Create'.
You'll see a pop-up ,just press 'Yes' to continue.

d) You should then see this 'Create New Partition' window. Under 'Create As' click Primary and then under 'File System' click FAT32. Leave the cluster size as default and you can assign whichever drive letter you want. Once finished press OK.

e) This should bring you back to the main Mini Tool screen. Now hit the 'Apply' button on the top-left of the screen, denoted by a tick symbol.
This will bring up another pop-up window and will take several minutes to both re-size and create the secondary partition.

If successful, you should see message below. Congratulations your card is ready to use in conjunction with Link2SD. Restart your handset before moving to the next step.
[make sure to untick fast boot from the power options before restarting].


[This application makes it easy for users with root privileges on their phone to move applications to the SD card.]

a) Open the Link2SD app on your phone. You should be greeted with the a menu consisting of 4 options, check the FAT32 / FAT16 option and click OK.

If you then see the Superuser Request, click 'Allow'.

Once you see the message stating "Restart Your Phone. Mount script created please restart your phone...mounted automatically at boot", restart your phone. The app should now be ready to use.

b) To make sure everything is installed correctly. Click the Menu button and go to 'Storage Info'. This will show you the internal memory and your two partitions on the memory card. In my case, you can see that the second partition is 1 GB and is 99% free.

c) Now you need to move the apps of your choice to the memory card. Click the Menu button and press 'Multi-select'.

Choose which apps you want to move by clicking the tick box next to the app. System apps are greyed out and cannot be selected. Link2SD can only move apps that are already on the internal memory. If you have apps already on your SD card, you will need to move them back to the internal memory before you can link them with Link2SD.

If you want to move all of your apps, pressing the multiselect will bring up another menu allowing you to do this by selecting select all.

d) Once you have chosen which apps you want to move, you then need to hit the menu button and press 'Actions', which will bring up the following menu. Press 'Create Link'.

Leave all three check boxes ticked and press OK. Link2SD will now do its work and move/link the selected apps to your memory card.

Once finished, you should see that the apps you have moved have 'Linked - SD Card' in orange font in the Link2SD app list. Reboot your phone.

e) Congratulations your phone is now using Link2SD! You should now go to Settings by pressing the menu button and configure how you would like Link2SD to work. The main decision here is whether you want to Auto Link newly installed apps to the memory card. Given that you've gone through the hassle of installing Link2SD I suggest you enable Auto Link and make worrying about your internal memory a thing of the past.
