In my mind the external sdcard is a storage solution. It holds my pictures, music, video, and anything else large that my system generates gets saved there or moved there. The internal sdcard holds all temp data and everything else.
As we have progressed through these mount changes over the last few days none of the them have changed the underlying problem that the system is still writing all temp/cache files to my external sdcard. Does not matter what they are named for some reason the device keeps writing my maps, voice, dolphin browser, root explorer, etc cache files to my external sd. If I unmount it everything keeps working fine as well which confuses me. I have wiped the setting for the apps and deleted their temp directories but regardless as soon as my external sdcard is mounted they continue writing there.
I guess this isn't a huge issue but it makes a total mess of my external sdcard, the only place on my device that in the past I could actually keep organized.
So I guess what I was expecting to see was...
internal sdcard (emmc) continue as always holding app data and cache
external sdcard (sdcard) storing my files, music, pictures, etc and NOT acting as a temporary location for app data/cache
I am not bitching, just trying to explain this issue as well as I can. CM9 rocks my socks!
Does this make any sense? Am I the only one with this issue? Please advise
On my stock ROM, I had all of my app data downloaded to the internal memory (at least I think), and all of my pictures, videos, and music/ringtones on the SD card so I can switch phones easily. I could care less about re-downloading app data again. There's no way to split the two up? As in apps install to the internal memory, and just have an option to run the media scanner on the external card?
I should say "apps" or "app data" as in the extra file some games require, obviously secure storage is for the app itself...
