[How to] Swap internal sdcard to ext_card (SDcard External) position

03 Feb

For you that have a smartphone Android with limited internal memory (sdcard).

For example you have 2GB internal sdcard, then you have an extension : external sdcard 8GB. The problem is.. you can not save more data to internal memory. Because it’s limited!
So.. what can you do for solve this problem?
Just changes the position of sdcard. It’s easy! 

First to do :
– Root Required for this action;
– Root explorer, or other file explorer with root ability 
–  free-time with relax mind.

Okay, now open Root Explorer, searching for :
system/etc/vold.fstab

Then, edit it with text editor. Make sure that you have a write-access (w/o) first.


Find the following code:

#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *[
dev_mount ext_card /mnt/ext_card auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *]

change ext_card for sdcard and sdcard for ext_card

See the Codes below :
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *[
dev_mount ext_card /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/ext_card 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *]

give 644 permissions to this file (chmod 644 /system/etc/vold.fstab)
and then reboot your phone

    hi, what if my vold.fstab states that there are no sdcard/internal storage on the script? its 100% similar to my vold.emmc

    it only stated something like this
    dev_mount ext_card /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
    dev_mount usb_otg /mnt/otg auti /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
