The purpose of SDMergE400 mod is to get more space for user data by means of removing the unnecessary 1GB internal SDCARD. Technicaly it is done in 4 steps:

Step 1 - Update recovery to use custtom one that support expert partitioning
Step 2 - Re-partition the internal storage and create filesystems
Step 3 - Install fresh Cyanogenmod 9 nightly
Step 4 - Install SDMergE400 modifier for CM9 nightly.

Main features:

1. Extended data partition 1.15 GB
2. Battery / power up fix
3. USB Mass Storage fix
4. ICS device encryption fix
5. 1GHz / tun / swap kernel

How to install (for the first time - no previous SDMergE400 mod installed):

1. Download archive with all parts from http://sendfile.su/787227 [SEE BOTTOM OF POST FOR MIRRORS] and unpack its contents to External SD card. Download the latest CM nightly to your external SD card too. Make sure the phone is fully charged!

2. Ensure you have CWM 5.8.4.5 recovery installed.

3. Plug off the charger and reboot into recovery

4. Apply SDMergE400_Step1.zip from sdcard. The phone will reboot on success prompting you a new recovery.

5. Apply SDMergE400_Step2.zip from sdcard. The phone will reboot on success prompting you an old recovery for step3 and step4 completion.

6. Apply CM9 install and after it completes, apply SDMergE400_Step4.zip from the sdcard.

7. Reboot and cross your fingers - after 2-3 minutes max you will see the SIM card PIN lock screen.

How to apply newer CM nightlies:

1. Copy CM9 nightly to external card

2. Apply from CWM recovery

3. Apply SDMergE400-Step4.zip from external card

4. Reboot normal

All you user data should remain intact.


How to revert the mod:

1. Reflash KDZ to stock 2.3.6 kernel.

When I follow the steps to flash the newest nightly. All my apps,data,gapps are still there. But for some reason the overclocked kernal is not. I guess i have to re flash it. Also has anyone notice that in the about cm update, it does not always display the current version of the cm version your using. Im using 20130407... the phone displays 20130313. Overall all im happy with the mod and has saved me time (no need to re download apps/can change settings when flashing to latest cm) and a lot frustration from not having enough space to install apps.

Yes, that's from the overclocked kernel. I contacted the author, maybe he'll remove/fix this.

Edit: No, it's step4 I think, not the kernel.
