XDA Member Provides Guide On How To Partition Your SD Card

A large majority of the Android community is well familiar with “Rooting and ROMing” along with some other familiar terms like “partitioning” in regards to your sd card.  However, not many of them truly know how to do it.  XDA member Dredz has kept folks like them in mind and created a guide which shows you how to do it.  The most popular reason one would partition their sd card is to allow Apps2SD scripts to run, subsequently freeing up space and memory.  The guide is extremely user friendly and easy to read.  If you’re interested in venturing into this new world, you can head on over to the guide’s thread and get started.  Feel free to provide any and as much feedback as you can for the developer, as to improve the guide for newbies.  And also feel free to leave a comment or two below.


The main reason people partition is to take advantage of Apps2SD script. This allows for more internal memory and, depending on which version, control over various system settings

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
