Guys any tutorial or trick to make SD card the internal sd storage ?

I cannot manage all the games and apps in only 4 GB internal sd space given .

Moreover There are some problem in having internal sd (4 GB) . Like all the app backsup in that 4 GB space only which is not possible . Like whatsapp and moreover cwm also makes backup in that 4 gb space n which is not good in case someday I brick my phone etc etc.

So I want to swap between internal sd and external sd card . If anyone knows how to do it then please comment.

Alright bro...first..
Cwm makes folder in extSD card/clockworkmod/backup/*here*..
Second...as I see...ur main problem might be HD and big games with data..(If that is the scene, ) try gl2sd app..that will move ur game data to sdcard..and mount it whenever u want to play game..(simple as hell )..
NOTE: you have to keep a data first in phone memory, then it will move to SD card!(don't pit in sdcard directly)..
Hope I helped

the old method is change the mount point in /etc/vold.fstab but it doesn't work with this Emulated storage feature
