General :: Swap Internal And External Storage ICS?

Oct 15, 2013

So I have this GT n7000 with android 4.0.4 ICS, rooted. I want to swap my 32 gb external sd card with my internal one. I googled it, found a method that included replacing a vold.fstab file in system/etc but that was only for jellybean. I need a method for ICS. Also I can't understand what usb storage means. Is it different form internal sd card??

General :: 2 Small Internal Storage - How To Swap SD To Be Main Phone Storage?

Aug 23, 2013

I've bought this chinese clone of the SIII, it's a MT6575. It's great except for the internal storage, which supposedly is 500MB but there seems to be an invisible SD storage which is 2GB. It's really confusing... When I go to Settings -> Storage there are 3 memories: "Internal Storage" (claims to be 4GB but it's fake, it's actually 500MB), "Phone Storage" (claims to be 16.5GB but it's probably 2GB), and finally my SD, "SD Card" (32GB).

The thing is, I'm having problems downloading big apps because apps go to "Internal Storage" which is 500MB only, and which files are stored in the "Phone Storage" (maybe internal & phone are actually the same?). However when I go to Settings -> Apps, on the "Downloaded" tab, the apps are in "Internal Storage" (500MB), and on the "On SD Card" tab, it shows that apps are in "Phone Storage" (the ones I moved to SD). This means my 32GB SD isn't being used by the system when I send apps to SD probably.

Also, my 32GB SD card is found in /mnt/sdcard2, and the /mnt/sdcard... I don't know which storage is that.

So basically all this is happening because I tried to Link2SD with my 32GB SD doing all the 2 partitions stuff and so, but Link2SD never detects the "secondary SD" which is the 32GB SD, as this fake SD card, "Phone Storage", is probably what the programs thinks to be the SD card.

General :: How To Swap External SD To Internal On Kitkat

May 2, 2014

I'm searching for a solution to swap external sd to internal. I had to break the internal storage to make a I9003 working again.

Now, it boots the ROM from the external (but that's an other story).

Camera needs storage0 (internal storage) to work properly for DCIM. But I have only storage1 (inserted microsd). In 2.3.6 swap sd was possible by editing vold.fstab. In Kitkat the opportunity has been denied.

I search for a way to make storage1 to storage0 in CM11. Whether CyanogenMod is working on it?

General :: Samsung GT-S6310 Swap Internal To External Memory?

Nov 8, 2013

i own a Samsung Galaxy Young GT-S6310, and i'm too disperate with my internal memory... i have tryed many methods:

1. Editing Vold.Fstab file, but it's impossible because it will not show internal Mount Point.

2. Searched on Play Store and downloaded "External 2 Internal" app and i have installed it, then i have swapped memory, but internal and external shows same values...

3. Downloaded "Link2SD" app and i have created a Ext2 partition on my SD Card... but nothing (shows my memory is emulated)...

I will increase my internal memory because i must download games...

General :: Expanding Internal Storage Onto External / SDCard?

May 8, 2013

I finally upgraded to android, i got the cheapest phone possible(kyocera milano) which seems to be a mistake. The phone has only about 300mb internal storage and can barely handle its own updates(because of the limited storage). so i would like to know if its possible to make the phone "think" that some of the sd card is part of its internal memory? I found an adb driver for it(dont ask me where or which one because i had no idea and started messing with one until it worked) i have not tried rooting but can if i need to.

Android :: Internal Memory And External Storage

Aug 18, 2010

I've started seeing some apps that offer to read/write data to the internal phone memory (like Super KO Boxing 2, which offers to save a whopping 52MB to the phone memory). I suppose this is because newer Android devices have a lot of internal storage, as opposed to my devices, which have very little. I would like to support internal storage in my app as well.

But it's a bit difficult to implement a solution to something that I don't really know how it works. For example, do these newer devices allow users to upload files to the internal memory, like it's possible to do with the SD card? Can someone explain internal storage from an user perspective and recommend strategies for supporting read/write operations both for internal and external memory (ie: letting the user choose which memory to use at startup, like the Super KO Boxing 2 app)?

General :: Internal / External SD Not Mounting?

Jan 22, 2013

Since my last upgrade of cynaogenmod nighties yesterday on my galaxy s2, my internal AND external sdcard are not mouting anymore

I tried to understand why and I found that my /storage folder was empty. I think it should have been populated by /init.smdk4210.rc script :

Code:
...
on early-init
export EXTERNAL_STORAGE /storage/sdcard0
export SECONDARY_STORAGE /storage/sdcard1
mkdir /storage 0775 system system[code]...

I would like to retrieve my internal sdcard content.

General :: Google MUST Support External Storage

Oct 9, 2012

None of the Google Applications support external storage, Gmail 4.1.2 won't send documents attached from an external sd card, Play Movies & TV won't allow you to specify a external card as a storage location, pinned Google Drive documents can't be stored on an external card, Play Music sucks up internal memory. Try sending an attachment using Gmail from a Motorola Xoom, a "Google Experience Device".

How do we get Google to support this? Most other email applications support it, but as a Google Apps Enterprise user I want and expect the native Android email application to work.I use external storage on a Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S3, Razr Maxx and Transformer Prime.

General :: Changing FS Type For Internal And External SD On MTK6589

Jan 13, 2014

Trying to customize my new device (Runbo X6: MTK6589T, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android 4.2.1) .

1) Repartitioning

Actually, I successfully edited the partition table in EBR1 and EBR2 and the start addresses in the Scatter file and proofed it multipple times by recalculating, but after flashing, although I get a correct output in system settings and by dumping /proc/emmc, /proc/partitions and /proc/dumchar_info, when I try to push some apps, for ex., above the initial 680MB to /system/app or something similar I get a "disk is full" message. As I was able to find out only the /data and /fat partitions get physically updated by the new sizes, meanwhile the /system and /cache partitions remain physically on the initial state and get updated by the new sizes logical only. Although if after flashing I dump the system image by "cat /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 > /sdcard/system.img" I get an image with a size corresponding to the updated size of the partition.

Initial values:
EBR1
begin /system = 00 18 02 00 (real 00 02 18 00)= 137216 blocks (* 512 bytes + 1024 blocks of 512 bytes) = 70778880 bytes
size /system = 00 50 14 00 (real 00 14 50 00) = 1331200 blocks (* 512 bytes) = 681574400 bytes
begin /cache = 00 68 16 00 = 1468416 blocks = 752353280 bytes
size /cache = 00 F0 03 00 = 258048 blocks = 132120576 bytes
begin /data = 00 58 1A 00 = 1726464 blocks = 884473856 bytes
size /data = 00 00 40 00 = 4194304 blocks = 2147483648 bytes

[Code] ......

I also read somewhere that it is also necessary to edit PMT: in that case I tried to flash with original PMT, edited PMT and without PMT, but cuoldn't notice any difference.

2) Mounting the internal memory and external SDcard on system start natively as EXT4 instead of FAT32

Using my old device (Runbo X5: MTK6577) I had success on mounting the internal storage as EXT4 by disassembling recovery.img and editing /etc/recovery.fstab to change the "vfat" value to "ext4" and reformatting the storage after a successful boot with ne recovery, but on Runbo X6 I get no change to the filesystem after reformatting. By the external SDcard I never had success.
