Where is ext2int mod for Samsung Galaxy S4? I want to swap Galaxy S4 internal storage and external SD card. Yes, we all know that 16GB Galaxy S4 has lesser usable user storage compare to Galaxy S3. And it is surely not enough for gamers. Most of the Gameloft games are in 1 GB of size. Some even more. Well, you are out of luck for the moment. There is no ext2int mod for Galaxy S4 yet. Furthermore, I don’t recommend using it on Galaxy S4 personally. Why? Galaxy S4 internal NAND memory is 6 times faster than external SD card on reading and 3 times on writing. Therefore, your Galaxy S4 will be a lot slower if you do so.
Err… Directory Bind is not working on Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. How can I move Galaxy S4 applications and games data to external SD card? No worry, FolderMount comes to rescue. In short, FolderMount is Directory Bind replacement. However, it does have its own limitations. Yes, the free version of FolderMount lets you move 3 folders only. 3 folders are enough for me since I will move 1 Android folder only. The sub folder – data and obb will be moved along, right? Sorry, you can’t move these folders but only individual folder within them. Luckily, paid premium version gives you move unlimited folder and can use Android, Android/obb or Android/data as source directories. Note – root access is needed. Not yet root Galaxy S4?

First of all, I would like to say sorry if you had lost your precious Samsung Galaxy S4. Not to worry much, there is always way to recover it.

For those did not sign in Samsung account yet, it’s time for you to do so. You don’t know what might happen to your Galaxy S4 as well. It might be stolen or missing in action…

Rooted your Galaxy S4? Then stay with me on this guide, else feel free to skip this. Without root access, you won’t corrupt or delete EFS. So you are safe.
EFS folder is a place that store all Samsung Galaxy S4 important data like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth MAC address and IMEI (nv_data.bin). Therefore, don’t play with system level folders especially EFS folder if you don’t know what they are. For you info, your Galaxy S4 can’t make voice call if IMEI number is missing. Therefore, it is better to make a backup of Galaxy S4 EFS. Why? Install unstable or poorly cooked Galaxy S4 ROM might cause EFS partition to be corrupted or missing too.
