The other side of Partitioning SD card to increase android's RAM

Partitioning SD card does free up a portion of internal memory for use as RAM. However, there are many not so positive side effects:
  1. SD card needs re-partitioned and all your SD card data will be lost during process.
  2. SD card speed rating plays a crucial role in the system's overall performance and stability.
  3. If you remove SD card, phone will stop working.
  4. SD card's life will get reduced and there will be extra wear and tear over time as SD cards, unlike EPROM in flash memory, aren't designed for many write cycles.
  5. Device will not be stable. You may see application not responding more often.
  6. If data corruption happens on SD card, phone will become inoperable, requiring a complete re-flashing of ROM and loss of all data.
