Hi folks!

I know for a fact that our A3s offers a great deal of bang for the buck specs: Screensize, battery (2 days no charging is a "wow"!), processor and GPU (Adreno 506). The only downside is the RAM and internal storage. Well yeah, let's admit the fact that its main weakness is the multitasking part due to the 2GB RAM, but as for the storage (16GB with 7GB plus usable), we can still do something about that.

Disclaimers:
- DIAYOR - "Do it at your own risk".
- YWINV - "Your warranty is now voided"
- BACKUP your SD card as it will be formatted during the process


Requirements:
- Oppo A3s

- Windows PC / Lappy with ADB installed (if you don't know what's this, you may search to our very informative website)

- MicroSD (at least class 10 for less lag)

- USB cable

- Ability to follow instructions (kidding!)



Let's start:

- Download the attachment and extract adb.zip to your desktop (for easy access)

- Enable developer options on your phone
> Settings > About phone > tap "Version" 7 times

- Go to Developer Options
> Settings > Additional Settings > Developer Options

- Enable "USB Debugging" and "OEM Unlock"

- Plug your phone to PC / Lappy

- Your phone should give you prompt about authorizing USB Debugging from the current PC / Lappy
> Just allow it

- On PC/Lappy, go to your ADB folder and open "cmd-here" (you should get a black window)

- On the CMD window, type in the following commands:

>>> adb devices
- You should see your device ID; if it shows "unauthorised", unplug your phone and plug it back - make sure you allow the debugging prompt on your phone

>>> adb shell
- it should show "$" on the next line

>>> sm list-disks
- this should show your disk ID. Mine is 179:64

>>> sm partition disk:179:64 mixed 60
- The "mixed 60" is the percentage partition for the external storage. In my case, 60 means that 60% of my 32gb card will be my "external storage" for pictures. The 40% will be merged to my internal.
- THIS WILL FORMAT YOUR CARD

>>> reboot
- this will reboot your phone to apply the changes


- Download link2sd from playstore and go to storage info, you'll see there another partition under SD card which is the 40% of the partition of your card.


- All the apps that will be installed moving forward will go to that partition.


- If you want to move an existing app to the newly partitioned storage, just uninstall it and reinstall it, either via apk or playstore.


- NOTE: Obb and data files will still remain on the internal. (still for Facebook's data and other apps, I notice that they are stored on the new partition)


Enjoy your new device! :)
