Hello all,

I am really curious about uSD functionality. I have a large amount of space on my uSD card, but SFOS does not use it at all(!?!!?)..and also it seems it does not wanna see it. I mean, it sees the music saved on uSD in 'Media' player and that's all .. I'd like to have the option to install applications on my uSD card too (especially if they are Android Apps - they need more space) and without any risk.... Also, i would like an option to move data in phone memory to uSD without the risk of not being able to use the applications after ..

I searched for a solution for this and i found really interesting options and solutions on this forum, but they are a risk for beginners in unix/QT/HTML5/etc. (like me) and i prefer a official and permanent solution in one of the SFOS updates.. My phone memory is almost full..and it seems that after i pass the limit of 75%, the SFOS has problems: lots of restarts, battery availability misread... especially when discharges (59% or 47% or 30% becomes 0% in an instant - and the phone shuts-down) and so on..

I formatted the uSD to btrfs and split its content into android and sailfish.

welcome to the advantages of real linux and root access where you can mount whatever you want where you want it :)

i for example mounted my home directory and Android storage to the sd card, but of course you can modify this to your needs. i wrote a how-to here:
