Michael Morana: +Phillip Mapes im assuming you had done the v6 update and using the
motochopper method messed you up. Have you tried hard reset?
Michael Morana: +kyle burbano uninstall then reinstall aParted. Or, to play it safe, use my
video on partitioning from your computer instead of using aParted.
Michael Morana: +Keaton McDermott nope. You have extra space to put music on. However,
you've gotta put it there manually or tell whichever app your downloading
music from to put it there.
Michael Morana: @blaziankhmer You can still root using saferoot and some people have
managed to make this method work WITH the update (by chance/luck)
Joseph Crow Riley: I just got my phone a day ago. I was shocked and annoyed that there is no
way to move apps to the SD card. I followed your instructions to the
letter, but it does not root correctly. I notice that when motochopper is
doing its thing, under where it says "success" there is also a failure
listed. It does not matter how many times I uninstall it from my phone and
reinstall it, it does not root correctly and the other programs do not
recognize it as being rooted.
Erik Tempest: What happened to the audio? The last time I watched this I could hear you
speaking. Now it's obnoxious intro music and then dead air.
Bluur|PC: Hey Thanks For everything Micheal, I was trying forever to do this by
myself without your help and the internet and i just wasted my time. if you
guys follow Micheal's videos it will work (I PROMISE!) everything is fine.
Have any problems pm one of us and ill be happy to help and im sure he will
Bluur|PC: The best root method is SAFEROOT. Works Perfect! Follow Micheals Videos!
junior fernandez: Main reason why I returned this phone because u can't move apps to sd card
Linda Key: Michael please help. I have not done anything to my phone since the last
time we chatted. I still needed to re partition my SD card because it was
running out of room for apps, but everything I had was working great.
However when I got up this morning I noticed that a bunch of my apps have
been deleted. I had a folder for games. The folder was gone and only 1
game icon was in the spot where the folder was. Super user is gone as
well. My husband swears he didn't touch my phone. Have you ever heard of
this? My phone is telling me it doesn't have room to download even my
banking app. Do you think I should go back to factory settings and start
over? It was rooted successfully. The settings are still the same.
Seriously advise.. What would Michael do??? :-(
armyboy3848: Dude but I don't get Run.but
gumdrops27: Whats the song?
TougeSpecV: Does this work for the optimus f6? And do i do the same exact steps for the
f6? (since the screen is bigger)
Anne Coleman: Why is there a slot for sd cards if these companies aren't making a way for
you to USE them? Argh! I just went from an Optimus V to the F3 and on the V
I was able to just click and send whatever I wanted to the sd card. What's
the point of the slot if you can't actually USE it? Talk about
non-user-friendly. One of the teens already has her phone space maxed out
miniclip843: Is it safe to root because I barely got my phone and I don't want to mess
it up. Anyway, great video. Please reply as soon as possible
Edward Gonse: What kind of case do you have on your phone? Where did you buy it?
jacob zamora: When I went to Aparted and link2sd the superuser request didn't pop up
please reply I'm so irritated with limited space
TheGuy04: it says mount script cannot be created for me
matt smith: Your guide was quite helpful.
I have noticed that moving files with link2sd does not move the whole app.
Pretty much if I had a 700 mb app only 500mb would be moved.
So have you had any luck with this since the apps add up quick?
mistermister98: I followed your tutorial and I only have one problem. You see, I have a 32
GB Micro SD Card in the slot, which I am able to transfer those apps to. I
bought Grand Theft Auto: Vice City from the Amazon AppStore, and it is 1.4
GB. When I try to download the app, the size of the app is to big to fit on
the internal memory (which is only 1.2 GB), which means there is no way of
transferring it to the SD Card that has plenty of room. Any ideas?? (I'm
using the same exact phone as you)
Juan Burgueno: Can u still root the optimus on the new update using this method ?
Kurt B: Can you help me. I did all of the steps and all of my large apps are linked
to my sd card but my storage hasn't cleared up...
kaiotes: I previously tried rooting via motochopper method. the superuser icon got
installed. but when i tried using rootchecker to see if it was sucessfully
rooted it said it didn't. i tried redoing the motochopper method again i
got an error of failure. installed failed already exists. rooting phone...
this may take a few minutes, failure. failure.exploit complete. i wanted to
use the link2sd app it couldn't obtain root access. if you have root access
make sure you respond allow or grant to superuser request. can you help me
jackercrackbox: Apps dont move man. They just link to the location. I moved kik and candy
crush to external sd card. Then checked my storage after each move and it
still says the same amount is on my internal storage. Did you check this or
am I doing something wrong?
asleepwmonsters: the f3 installed the root but the superuser isnt working.. what?
4G64SicKShoT: yo where'd u get your phone case
forest Gump: Hey awesome video, I followed every step, and I made it to the end
successfully. The only thing is that when I move my apps to the sd card, it
doesnt free up my internal space, it just keeps adding to it. Can you help?
GL4DIA70R: I believe my phone just bricked, I hit the reboot option on Link2SD and
then my phone just went black and hasn't rebooted. I would like some help.
Claire Nunez: Hi Michael! great video! I am very frustrated and disappointed with my LG
Optimus F3's memory so I want to root. But I have a couple newbie
questions. When I want to root my phone I have to factory reset and I have
to partition the SD card so when factory resetting I don't have a place to
back up my information, or do I? You can partition when there is
information on the SD card and internal storage? If so, how can I back up
all my info? Thanks!
MJ androidhawaii: Completed everything by the letter but when I update the phone in Google
play it says insufficient storage.
AL4SK4NBULLKING: Not sure if you can help but i rebooted my phone because it was running
slow. When it turned back on, it is saying that my storage is out of space
all of my apps have been linked and don't know what to do know Please help
if you can thanks.
thehopper555: My internal storage space isn't freeing up for some reason. It says the
apps are being linked (I've linked apps such as twitter and instagram if it
edwin rodriguez: Does this still work....
Sean Mahoney: Got this to work using saferoot, but when I linked the apps to the new
partition, they disappeared completely. Any ideas? Or ideas about the new
cyanogenmod thing? (I'm a noob at this)
Pinoy Touch: Done my phone is rooted, Thanks for this but I have a problem! This is what
it said, Because your device has a primary external storage which is
emulated from the internal storage I can't move the apps to external
storage? any suggestion what to do here. . . .
Jeff Smith: saferoot worked for me. I had to use partition wizard on the PC to create
the necessary partitions to move my apps though.
Michael Sowa: Thank you so much for the video. Super easy to follow. I have a few
- When you say that the 4 gigs is set aside for apps, is that what Link2sd
is moving things into?
- To save music and photos on the 10 gigs left on the sd card do I have to
do anything such as a settings option or does it happen automatically?
- I assume what I do not (or cannot) move to the sd card is what is taking
up space of the internal memory.
Thanks again for the video, super super easy to do.
Tonino Nambo: Hey after several hours and fustration, I was able to the process of moving
my apps 2 sd. But weird thing, I dowloaded Busy box and then i did
everything again step by step and Mission accomplish. I was begining to
think that buying this sd card was worthless for this. Again thank you. You
sir are a genious!!
Btw can you keep me informed about the cynogenmod update for this phone.
StormerEcho: While trying to do this, my phone stopped reading any sd card I put in it.
I tried other sd cards, like a smaller one that I was using before I tried
this out with my bigger card. I did the other method for partitioning the
card, but I can't do anything now with the fact that I can't mount any
cards. Also when I open up super user it says I can't update the binaries
due to some error. Can you help?
I am Beobeto: all the steps were going smoothly until i opened aparted. the initial
screen did not pop up and it said that "no sd card device detected" can you
Colette Nicholas: Hey Michael, we spoke a few weeks ago. Still fighting with the phone. Had
a friend partition my SD card on a PC like you suggested. Even though I
originally had the LG drivers installed, used motochopper, & everything
worked & the phone rooted successfully (root checkers verified & Superuser
access was granted to Aparted & LInk2SD), it is currently not rooted. When
I try, it gets to a certain point in the process where it says failure.
Superuser is installing on my phone, but it is not granting access to
Aparted or Link2SD, I never get the permissions screen about always
allowing Superuser access & rootcheckers say that I'm currently not rooted.
:( Help if you can, please. I really don't want to reset my phone to the
factory settings I don't understand.
Rackista123: Hey why does aparted keeps saying no sd card detected
kasief andem: Please please i need help i partition my system memory by mistake please
tell me how i can fix it please
Will Leger: the command popup is saying that it doesn't recognize the phone
Adrian Uchiha: my aparted doesnt work like yours does what do i do?
chillin jerry: meant to say,
**USB Driver** not hard drive.
Stephen Gosciejew: when i go to delete my original sd card partition it says that
dev/block/mmcblk1p1 is being used and it says that I have to unmount it,
what do i do?
Andy Taubman: HI there. I promise you I followed your video step by step and installed
all the drivers. I just got a virgin optimus 3 and got all the way to the
"Run as administrator" step on motochopper. I hit enter I got the "daemon
started successfully" thing, then nothing else. bo more more writing that
showed up like it did in your video. The phone didn't reset and superuser
did not show up. Can you help?
Sheridon C: Hi! The video is very helpful but I have a problem with the aParted app.
Its not asking for SuperUser access. Will this be a problem and affect
Isaiah G: im a little confused on which partition i am sending apps TO
is it the ext4 or fat32.
So like say i want 2 gigs for apps should i make that the ext4 or fat 32?
