We use our smartphones for thousands of things but that could also mean more apps eating up our precious storage space. That’s exactly the problem of the Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300′s 16 GB of internal storage space. Even with its expandable memory, downloaded apps will still be stored in your internal storage by default. However, there is hope for us. Thanks to the XDA Developers forum, there is now a mod that will allow users to increase the size of their internal storage.
Developed by XDA Developers member mattiadj, the ExtSd2InternalSd mod works by simply swapping your internal and external SD cards. Say goodbye to your measly 16 GB storage and enjoy 32, or even 64 GB, of space. It works for all AOKP and AOSP based ROMs but unfortunately not for CM10 and CM9 releases.
This guide shows you how to increase the internal SD card space of the Galaxy S3 I9300.
Hooray! You have successfully increased your internal storage thanks to the ExtSd2InternalSd mod! You can now install more apps and games on your Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300. Let us know what you think about this mod in a comment below.
I finally won this batle.
Now i will post you tutorial on my site and i will post all credits for you too.
Thank you in advance.
I think this may be useful for me too My memory usage on my SGS3 was 11.6 Gby (out of 12!) and the phone was getting very hard to use. . I have tried all sorts to reduce the usage but havbe had almost no effect so…
I have 1Gby user apps/data which I backed up (using CWM and TB). Deleted apps/data… did a CWM factory reset/wipe, rebooted and phone came back up with … 9.8Gby used space, I haven’t put the user apps back yet, so the ‘system’ is taking up all this space. I also noticed the factory reset/wipe did not delete stuff on the internal SD card, directories I created are still there.
Is your method meant to solve the ‘bloatware’ problem. Can the Samsung installation really be using almost 10Gby of the internal SD. ? Also, if I may, Is there a EEPROM to flash AND the internal (12Gby) SD or are these the same. I am very reluctant to erase the SD, if I can find out how! if this is ACTUALLY the Samsung phone installation.
The techniques for ‘flashing; a ROM, mean a new EEPROM, NOT the Internal SD?? Yes?
The phone is getting to be useless unless I can get rid off a lot of the native stuff… My own apps/data only take up around 1Gby, so this all seems a bit ridiculous.
Would your technique here, solve this…
Thanks for your time
