Samsung Galaxy S :: Showing Wrong Memory On Internal And External Sd Card

Sep 14, 2010

Prior to installing the external card - the folders app showed /sd. Which I assumed was the internal one. Then I insert the external one, reboot the phone, and tehre is no additional directory in the folder view. Why is this? Secondly, its a 16GB card. Its reported as 14.58GB. The format option is greyed out. Is it automatically mounted at power on? Ideally I want to know where I install things to know that they are on the external card.

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:
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.

General :: Copy File From Internal Device Directory To External SD Card Rooted Galaxy S4

Jul 14, 2013

When making an image I accidentally had Clockworkmod image be saved to the device itself instead of being saved to the external SD card.

I am able to browse to it using Root Explorer and select to Copy it, but how do I PASTE it onto the external SD card when Root Explorer only accesses the device directory and not the external SD card?

Quick 2nd question: I know on some previous devices such as the Galaxy S 4G you were *not* supposed to run Clockworkmod after booting in and from the Apps Drawer, instead you were only supposed to run directly from the startup screen before booting in. Is it OK to actually start the Clockwork Backup/Restore process from the Apps Drawer of the Galaxy S4 and let it reboot and do its thing or is it only supposed to be run BEFORE booting in?

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 :: Can't Delete Files From External Memory Card Through File Explorer

Sep 9, 2013

I have tried a lot of custom Roms. I'm on Neat ROM Lite now. Not sure which ROM changed my file access permission settings to cause this problem but I'm not able to delete any files from my external memory card. I was able to delete when I was on stock rom. The other problem is for a few apps I get an error message which says can't install on usb/sd card. I have posted this in another thread some time back but got no response.

This is what my file permission looks like.

I am able to delete when my fone is connected to PC via USB. So I don't think it has anything to do with a faulty sd card.

General :: Moving Music From Internal Memory To SD Card?

Aug 20, 2012

I was a self confessed iphone lover.. But a few days ago curiosity got me and I decided to get a Galaxy S3.

I can't say how much a love this phone and am a bit ashamed that I didn't realize how great android devices were. So far I have been able to find out on my own how to do pretty much everything I needed done except for one thing.

I work in music hence have a lot of music on my phone. I didn't want to restart the cataloging process of recreating playlist after playlist. So i found a solution to transfer my itunes to my phone.

I did this with Air Sync and DoubleTwist. The main problem I have is it put all of my music on my internal memory card and now it is full. I have a 32gb external SD card that is empty right now and was wondering if there is a solution to quickly transfer all of my music from the internal memory to the SD card. Furthermore I would like for the air sync / doubleTwist software to put all future music on the SD card as well.

General :: How To Use SD Card As Internal Memory For Galaxy Y Pro B5510

Feb 12, 2013

I have a galaxy y pro. It's still functional and I want to add useful apps in it. Unfortunately for a smartphone it only has 160mb internal memory.

It's already rooted.

How do I turn my sd card into the internal memory?

That way if I download apps like zombie run it goes directly to the sd card.

Oh snap! I don't have a witty tapatalk signature!

General :: Rooted HTC Incredible Won't Recognize SD Card Or Internal Memory?

Mar 26, 2011

Just rooted my 2.2 Incredible tonight using Unrevoked3 on my Macbook. Everything was fine. I had RomManager and wanted to get Cyanogen, but I wanted to back up my apps first just in case. So I ran Titanium Backup. I wasn't sure how to do it, so I went to Menu>More>Create "". The phone started doing something, then it said it failed to create update and then the phone went dead. Tried powering back on, got to HTC Incredible screen, then screen went black and phone did 5 quick vibrations back to back and the green "new message" indicator light started blinking like I had a new email or something.

Tried powering back on, but nothing happened. Pulled battery, put it back, still nothing. Had to pull battery, plug phone into computer, put battery back in and then it powered on. Tried a Reboot, but that didn't do anything. Tried re-running unrevoked3, but it won't do anything because now my phone can't find any SD card or internal memory. Both are just grayed out. So even though my phone has 8gig internal and an 8gig external SD card in it, it's not showing either. I can't load a new ROM because it needs the SD card. I put the SD card into my computer and it shows all of my stuff on there, so the card isn't corrupted.
