'link2sd mount script creation wizard appears everytime, unable to mount the 2nd partition' Solution

Problem Statement:
In short when you start your link2sd app it prompts you to create mount script by choosing the format of 2nd sd partition, then it asks to reboot device. But after the reboot, link2sd again prompts for script creation........and this loop continues.

Solution :
  1. Try making second partition using your clockworkmod recovery. If it does not help got to step 2.
  2. Ensure that the format of the second partition is not automatically changing itself. To do this you can follow the following steps:
    1. Insert your memory card into your pc with help of a memory card adapter.
    2. Download , install and run mini tool partition wizard.
    3. Backup important stuff from your sdcard.
    4. Delete every partition on your sdcard and click apply.
    5. After that recreate your desired partitions. This time it won't revert to ext3.. Now you must try to use link2sd and see if the problem is resolved. If not, go to step 2.
  3. As described by NaraRockingMyAce at an xda forum :
    • With help of MiniTool Partition Wizard delete only your second
      partition on sd card. (use sd card adapter, don't do it through data cable).
    • Create the 2nd partition again and make sure to set it as primary.
    • Apply and verify if the problem is resolved.
