Good Day! Thought you, or whoever else has an interest may like to see this article by chainfire (lead developer),
and this one about android device specific configurations. ( I keep looking at this like there might be some magic there;)
apparently, the so-so work around for us was initiated by Samsung, and is a dirty hack that they still implement.
I was looking into the init.rc file for the 510 and found:
mkdir /storage 0751 root sdcard_r
I changed the above to rw thinking I found the golden calf, recompiled the kernel with the adjusted ramdisk and tested it to no avail.
I do however think I'm on the right track.
I dont think the problem is getting the device to user the sdcard(1), as a symlink maybe could do the trick, I think the problem is making it visible to programs like Dolphin when you want to download something, and then getting a request to do so, meaning programs can't arbitrarily write to the sdcard without our explicit permission (root or question).
