Easily Expand The Internal Memory Of Your Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102

I recently came into a Samsung Galaxy Y Duos phone and the first thing that struck me was the paltry and miserly160MB internal storage that was included in the phone. Well, yes, granted, it is supposed to be a budget phone but 160MB on a smartphone in this day and age is simply outrageous?! Its dual SIM feature, however, made it very difficult for me to pass it over.

Fresh from my exploit expanding the internal memory of my Toshiba Thrive Tablet, i knew there had to be a solution to this irritating development.

And guess what? I was right, damn right!

Though the procedure was tested on a Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102, it should work on any Android mobile phone, especially the Galaxy Duos series.

Please proceed with caution and backup your data first!.

Again, what we are setting out to do is to make the device recognize the external memory card as an internal memory.

Skin of CWM Skin1980-GT-S5360+CWM.zip

  • Install the app, Link2SD, from Google app market to your phone
  • Switch off your phone and boot up into recovery mode by pressing the following keys at the same time; Volume up +Home button +lock button
  • Release the buttons immediately the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos logo comes on
  • On the screen labelled ” Android System Recovery”, use the volume key to select “apply update from sd card”, then select “skin1980-G1-S5360+CWN.z”
  • On the screen “ClockworkMod Recovery v”, select “advanced”
  • On the screen “Advanced and Debugging”, select “Partition SD Card”
  • On the screen “For Ext Size”, select the size you will want your new internal memory storage to be. A max size of 1024 MB (1GB) is advised because of stability issues.
  • On the screen labelled “swap size”, select 0M
  • Now you wait a few minutes for your SD card to be partitioned.
  • Afterwards, select “reboot recovery”, then select “reboot system now”. Your phone will reboot.
  • Select link2sd
  • Choose “recreate mount script”, then select “ext3”
  • Reboot your phone

After your phone reboots, you may launch the linksd app again and move installed software to the partition you created by “linking” them.

Please note that you will not notice any increase in the size of your internal memory after this procedure when you check via your phone settings but what it does is that subsequent installations are made directly on your SD card subject to the maximum size you partitioned.

Now i have a 1GB Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102. Life is indeed Good …

    after select applying updates from sd card skin 1980.. is not showing what should i do

  • can i download skin1980 using directly my mobile phone? Where please help

  • Sumanth

    Can we change that internal memory settings day by day as 200mb,500mb,1gb and 350mb etc….. Day by day

  • hey Intelligents…..Use your brain before gonna do some thing…don’t fell in the well like black sheep…..hooooo….

    1st take backup ur iMportant files to ur PC or another memory card

    2nd thing backup ur contacts and phone storage important files,because while ROOTing if you mistakenly select wrong option it will delete all files…

    3rd main and Important Thing is-You must Install this application on “Link2SD” on your phone memory dont download it on your SD memory..(If you downloaded it on ur Sd memory,while “Rooting” all the files may deleted in SD so it cant access “LINK2SD” after all steps),this is main problem who those below Sheeps not did carefully…..

    if your phone memory is full,try to delete some application,then you should download this “LINK2SD” app on phone memory…or else those steps wont work out for you even you may tried 1000 times…

    All the best…(y) (y)

  • It looks like your instructions are nearly identical to those at http://androidmegacity.blogspot.com/2013/03/easily-expand-internal-memory-of.html, who wrote them first so I can give them credit?

  • Thank you for these instructions! I applied them without problems, but when I start Link2SD I cannot mount the partition ext3, I get the message “Mount script error – Mount script cannot be created. – Writer: no space left on device”
    Can you please give me a solution to this problem?
    Thanks in advance, regards.

  • Sunil Kumar Jangra

    i m not getting this option “apply update from sdcard”

    please help

  • I don’t have the skin option

  • Once I rebooted the phone and accessed the Link2SD, then selected ext3 as instructed but I got the following response: “Root Access Warning” Link2SD could not obtain root access. I you have root access make sure you respond “Allow” or “Grant” to the superuser request.”

    Any idea out there, as to how to proceed from here? Thanks in advance

    • Sumanth

      See dude..! If yoy root your phone there will be an app called super user.. Open it and there you can see the app name link2sd.. Open it at bottom you can see the options 1)smily face 2)delete…. Select the smily face thats it.. Now relax

    • anonymous

      you dont root right .. u must root ur phone..

    • first root ur mobile 😛

  • Cool.. Thanks a lot!!

    Now I have a 1GB Samsung Galaxy Young Duos, too!!^^

  • I rooted the system and made the partition (as you mention in other post) and now something happened with my syncronization. Google play, Gmail chat, whattsap do not have internet connection, and I cannot see Link2SD although I installed before the partition and therefore I cannot execute the last instruction. I have internet but I cannot install anything from the browser.

    Do you have any idea of how to solve this? or if I can go back?

    Thanks

  • I done all the process with rooting my phone… Now wt sud I do ? Can I root nw ?

  • Thank you for this very nice information and resources. I followed this procedure and all went well. I then tried to copy back all the data I had on my SD card prior to this procedure but now when I attach the SD card to the PC it says “not formatted”. I can read the SD through the KIES software, but is there no way just to use a simple card reader?

  • Thanks for this info.
