I switched back to using internal storage for apps and media because I like to keep my sd card only for movies and tv shows.

I wish there was a setting to have media go to the external sd card and apps to internal storage.

Most people wants app data installed on internal mem not on the external SD card.

+1.

I think its great that EMMC refers to internal phone memory as it should.

Also great that SDCARD refers to the removal SD card.

BUT, I perfer to have all phone related activity (apps, downloads etc) heading to the internal phone memory and my storage of personal files / music / etc on the removable SD card.

When I do a full wipe, I want all app data and such gone from the phone for a full reinstall but I do not want to delete all my personal files.

Lol... "Desperate for attention" is not the right expression to use. I'm just trying to change the mood of some people here complaining about something that was OBVIOUSLY warned by Codeworkx before releasing it. Some people say things and complain without even thinking or investigating first. If you dont like it, just don't say anything.
Just don't take it personal, live and let others live too...

Peace...

ROM Manager Premium is still asking for "SD Card to be mounted" no matter what I choose. Aha, I also find that the camera is asking for SD card.

I think I'll roll back to my Samsung backup, factory reset and install cm9. This has to work since it's from zero.

You will have eventually to either get used to this swap, or change rom. That simple. I think CM will not come back. However when Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() method, gets fixed somehow (I guess it is already fixed), it will be normal.

For now if you want to have CM9 with all the other features (just sdcard working on the inverse of CM9), you can try my rom, and install default CM kernel.

I can deal with the other issues, i just want the Play Store to install apps to the internal storage by default, without having to invert emmc and sdcard

Camera and Gallery do not work. I don't get why would they merge something that blows the whole phone? I would be ok with the change as long as Camera and Gallery would work. I do not care where the hell the internel is.


Edit: Settings->Storage->*Hit MENU Button*->Storage Configuration->*TICK*


It should be ticked by default, btw. Not all of us have EXTERNAL cards. =) Every stuff should be installed in the INTERNAL storage BY DEFAULT.

Read the FAQ, if you dont have an external card, do what codeworkx says to do in there.
