Hi is there any mod to switch external memory to internal like on previous HTC Phones and Samsung phones where everything by default is saved to the external sdcard?

+1 I hate that the recovery and backups went straight to the internal storage. I prefer recovery and backups on the sd in case my internal storage gets wiped.

Yes that's right, although philz backup allows u do save to external sdcard, however app data for gameloft games and other apps quite quickly fill the internal sdcard, on the Samsung s3 and HTC one sv I had a mod which allowed all downloaded app data to go straight to external memory card, the mod showed the external memory as internal to all, it allowed unlimited apps

From past experience in HTC and some Samsung Phones the following file is modded "vold.stab" to switch the memorys.

Imo I wouldn't put any apps or app data on external since the card is so slow compared to internal.

To be honest I've had a sgs3 for 2 years with the mod on from the beginning and it hardly made any difference to the speed, the app itself is stored on internal memory but any external data the game or app downloads stores itself on the external memory card, and the HTC m8 being a BEAST i dnt think we Shud c any lags

I agree. Especially if you use a decent uhs-1 sdcard
