dev_mount sdf /storage/external_SD auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host

Or in a shell you could umount the internal sd then loop mount the external sd folder to the internal sd folder.

Did the edited vold help?
I can't help If I don't know the folders under /mnt on your device and if you have busybox installed.

Can you use a shell(Terminal emulator or adb shell)?

If so then use these commands line by line:
Code:
su
busybox umount -R /storage/sdcard0
mount -o loop /storage/external_SD /storage/sdcard0
