Samsung galaxy y is a highly popular entry level android phone. The device packs fair quality stuffs. Then again, you can’t wish for HTC quality at this price.

The most annoying part of galaxy y is poor ram and low internal memory.
In this article we will show you how to increase internal memory of Galaxy Y GT S5360.



Warning:

  • Rooting voids the device warranty. Do at your own risk
  • These methods are given by xda experts
  • Always make a backup of all important data.
  • These methods are highly device specific. Please don't try this for other handsets.
 ( Tested ROMs: Galaxy Y  Stock, ChobitsDigitalis Legacy 1.6 and 1.8, may work with almost all roms with Link2sd Support)

Lets Begin: 

This methods requires your phone to be rooted first.


Step 1: Partition Your Memory Card Into two.


  • Download and Install MiniTool Partition, tool
  • Partition Your SD card into two sections
Partition 1:
Label: Android-SD
File System: FAT32
Partition Size(in MB): 1536 MB (1.5GB for 2GB SD Cards) or 836MB (for 1GB SD Cards)

( for Cards above 2GB, deduct 1 GB for the second partition)

Partition 2:
Label: Android-EXT(EXT Number): Ex. Android-EXT2/EXT3 or EXT4
File System: EXT3 (preferable file system) 

Ext3 is tested and working fine on stock. So it is advisable.

"For EXT partition it is advisable to keep the size limited to 1 GB for all SD cards above 4GB."

  • Install link2sd from playstore

  • Open Link2sd. It will ask the Second partition of your SD card. Select the second partition that you have made.

  • Now it will ask you you to restart. You can do it now or its better to check the current memory info from Menu--> Storage Info.

  • Now Restart.  

  • Open Link2SD and filter Applist to show only User Apps by tapping on the funnel icon and then select User.
Auto link all applications installed: select auto link from settings tab and make sure you have ticked all three links, dalvik,library,files,etc.


Move An Application To Second Partition :
  •  Now in order to move an app to sd card, Select an application--> tick the following
Link application file (the .apk file itself)
Link dalvik-cache file
Link library file (if an app have lib files)

Uninstall Bloatwares:

  • In order to uninstall bloatwares, Filter the applist to show only the system apps.
  • Tap on the application and press Uninstall. It will give you a warning. Never mind, just continue.

There you go! You have successfully incresed the Internal Memory of your Galaxy Y GT S5360

  6. @ Sumit,

    Link2SD actually links applcations to the second partition you have created.
    Enable autolink in settings and try to install apps. Note that whether there is any change in the internal memory. View the storage information in link2sd for more info.

  9. @vishal,

    use about 512Mb. ext3


    use ilnk2sd to uninstall the unwanted apps that came with your device. You can use the filter option to sort out them in the System Apps category.

  12. @ Jennyrose,

    I think it will give you errors.
    On the new memory card you have to do the same procedure and create a second partition

  14. @ jennyrose,


    You did root the device,didn't you?
    Link2sd will ask you for the Superuser Permission on the first run after choosing the second partition if i remember correctly. You will have to select allow.

    uninstall link2sd and then reinstall. Continue with the next steps

  18. Hi,

    I have the similar problem here as of Ms.Jennyrose.
    After selecting ext3 at link2sd, it says:
    "Root Access Warning.
    Link2sd could not obtain root access.

    If you have root access make sure you respond 'Allow' or 'Grant' to the superuser request"-

    What sould I do and Where can I find this 'Allow' or 'Grant' thing?

    I have followed all the steps.
    Link2sd did not ask you for the Superuser Permission on the first run after choosing the second partition and there was no option to select 'Allow' or 'Grant'.

    I have also uninstalled link2sd and then reinstalled and followed with the next steps, the problem still remains.

    PLEASE HELP ME.
    Thanks!
