Please help me with editing vold.fstab. I want to switch the internal memory and sd card. I'm using Samsung GT-I8552.

## Vold 2.0 Generic fstab
## - San Mehat (san@android.com)

#######################
## Regular device mount
##
## Format: dev_mount <label> <mount_point> <part> <sysfs_path1...>
## label - Label for the volume
## mount_point - Where the volume will be mounted
## part - Partition # (1 based), or 'auto' for first usable partition.
## <sysfs_path> - List of sysfs paths to source devices

#usb host device

#usb host device
{

}
dev_mount sdf /storage/UsbDriveF auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host/usb
#EOF


I saw a thread almost similar with my problem just different model, but same format of vold.fstab. Unfortunately I cant figure it out how to make it work on my GT-I8552.

Have you tried a software solution e.g. foldermount or app2sd as it would be more safe and easy?
