[SWAP] Swap Internal SD Card And External SD Card Of Any Android Device. by micholalo(m): 9:01am On Jun 29, 2014
Warning: Please do a complete CWM Backup of your
device, so that if anything goes wrong you can revert
back to original state. Please don’t blame me if you
forget to do a complete CWM Backup.




Here is the procedure with an example I have done on
infinix x405 surf spice. vold.fstab file.

1. First of all your phone must be ROOTED, If its not then
STOP here and get the Root first.

2. Download Root Explorer or ES file explorer or any other such explorer
which can explore root directory of device.

3. Navigate to system/etc folder mount it as rw(read/
write).


4. look for vold.fstab in the /
system/etc/ folder.

5. open the file as text and scroll to the bottom and you
will find this.


PHP Code:

#dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 auto /devices/
platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/
platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard / storage / sdcard1 23 /devices /
platform/ msm_sdcc.1 / mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard2 / storage / sdcard0 auto /devices /
platform/ msm_sdcc3 / mmc_host


In order to swap the cards, you simply change sdcard1
to sdcard0 and sdcard0 to sdcard1 in the last two lines.
It will look like this:

PHP Code:

#dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 auto /devices/
platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/
platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard / storage / sdcard0 23 /devices /
platform/ msm_sdcc.1 / mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard2 / storage / sdcard1 auto /devices /
platform/ msm_sdcc3 / mmc_host


6. After done, reboot.
Instead of the measly 1.5gb, you now have the space of
your external SD card..

This doesn't make sense....
Why will someone prefer storing data in an internal memory instead of an external?
What if the device gets damaged?
Your data will be gone!
No recovery undecided

some apps are meant to install on internal memory e.g launcher, anti virus or app that auto start.
