Open Link2SD . Grant access to superuser request if prompted

As we’ve created the 2nd ext2 partition, it should be automatically detected by Lin2SD.

You’ll be prompted to select the file system of 2nd partition. Select ext2 and proceed

If you’re not prompted do it manually. Click on “Link2SD” (Link2SD Plus if paid version) and select “Recreate mount scripts” as shown in the first screenshot below.

After setting up the auto link, I tested it by installing an app from play store.

You can see it got automatically linked to SD card.

Open link to SD and click on the “middle option” on top to sort linked apps

You can see the newly installed app is linked and its whole data is moved to SD card

Hit on “3 dot icon” < “Link to SD Card”. Make sure all the boxes are checked and Hit “OK” to link all apps at once.
To be on the safe side avoid linking System Apps.

  1. Thank you very much for the clear explanations and the accurate visuals! I’ve had trouble setting up Link2sd in the past as well as Aparted, because they both aren’t clear on how to set up. You made it much easier!

    NOW… if we only had TWRP or Clockwork and maybe a custom mod?? lol
