i guess we have to mount external sd card after every boot (due to nand stuff)


EDIT : this might work for the script to work on every boot. http://www.xda-developers.com/tag/samsung-vibrant/

just download terminal (you need root) then just inject code(write) in terminal, easy no need to have adb in cmd (command prompt)
Code:
busybox mount --bind /mnt/emmc /mnt/sdcard/external_sd
see picture

Attached small script i wrote to automate this. Use it with Script Manager: unpack, put on your sdcard and run as root on boot.

save line below in text file, no file extension

mount -o bind /mnt/emmc/ /mnt/sdcard/external_sd

use play store app: "smanager" free, to run script on boot + su

May found problem
I've tried this method long time ago but it's not perfect.
When you want to connect pc sometimes it does not recognize your external sd card.
You need to umount that path if want to connect pc or mount drive to not occur problem.
