Prompt Xperia M get all apps + external and internal swap

Here I will tell you how to get all or most of the apps from google play and I will also tell you how to swap your internal and external memory.
I am not responsible if anything unwanted is to happen to your device.
It is not needed but as a precaution make a backup.

How to get all apps

Before you start:
  • Must be rooted
  • Have a file explorer with root privileges (I recommend root explorer)
1. Download the edited build.prop (link provided below)

2. Open your file explorer and navigate to /system

3. Rename the build.prop already located there, to build.prop.bak

4. Paste the build.prop you downloaded

5. Change its permissions to rw-r--r--

6. Reboot and enjoy

If you want to put your device back to its original settings delete build.prop and rename build.prop.bak to build.prop and reboot

How to swap internal and external storage

Before you start:
  • Must be rooted
  • Have a file explorer with root privileges (I recommend root explorer)
  • Have Script Manager installed (link here)
1. Download the edited swap.sh and restore.sh (links provided below)

2. Open your file explorer and navigate to /data

3. Paste swap.sh and restore.sh here

4. Change their permissions to rwxrwxrwx

5. Open Script Manager

6. Navigate to /data

7. Click on swap.sh and tick su, boot and is executable. Do the same for restore.sh

8. Run swap.sh wait a 10 seconds then kill it

9. Your storage should have now been swapped, go to settings > storage to check

This will only last until you next reboot. If you want to swap them back but do not want to reboot, repeat steps 8 and 9 but with restore.sh

If you would like to use my edited build.prop you are welcome to. I cannot remember where i got the swap.sh but credit goes to them.

This will work for C1905, but I do not know if it will work on any others, and the build.prop will make your phone think it is a Z1

Quick question. Why do we need to do this? In your post you mention,

Is there something we can do to the Xperia M that can cause it to not be able to download apps from Google Play?

What do you mean by cause it not to be able to download apps?

I recently bought a Xperia M SS. And I am reading through the forums to understand what all is available for this device. Your post provides instructions on "how to get all or most of the apps from google play".

That line gives me the impression that without following the instructions you have given, I will be unable to "get all or most apps from google play".

So I ask, what do you mean by that statement. I have only rooted (full root) my phone. I am currently able to download and use all apps that I need. I need to know whether or not I need to follow your instructions. Who are these instructions aimed at? Is there a subset of people who are unable to "get all or most apps from google play"?

What I mean by this is that it will allow you to get incompatible apps, such as asphalt 8 which is actually fully compatible.
