    Does this increase the speed in anyway? Any benchmarks?

    • TechnoDify

      Ya! it gives some effect to the speed too, but it is not much noticeable Them aim of doing that, is to increase the Internal storage, so that you can use as many apps as you want.

    Hi, I have read the complete thing. Since internal storage is is just 2 gb, i am planning to put a 16 gb card in my mobile. Let me know if you can write something that will swap my external sd with internal and then if possible can 2 gb of this memory be allocated in some way that it can used as ram?

    Will this help in increasing the performance of mobile?

    • TechnoDify

      With the help of this trick you can easily swap your external SD card storage capacity as your Device Internal storage…For that you can use any capacity SD card.. as this phone supports upto 32GB of SD card…
      Now talking about the performance, if there will be good volume of free space on your device internal storage, then it will also help the phone to lead to better performance…

      dude, i think this would help you…
      install moborobo in your PC
      then download root explorer (obtain apk file using google)
      install it using moborobo
      then just undo all the changes !
      that was quite simple, i guess

  • akhil
