Code:
mount | grep system
Should return
Code:
/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system ext4 rw,relatime,data=ordered 0 0
Now go make your changes then once done remount it as read-only again:
Code:
mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/stl12 /system

Yes, I just figured that out. But I'm stuck with how it should be in vold.fstab.

Code:
dev_mount usbdisk /storage/usbdisk auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host.0
That's what I found when googling, but that doesn't work. Not sure if there's anything specific to firetv, that should be changed.

NO -

It's a 32GB Transcend with fat32.

It auto-mounts on boot-up, but not when plugged in.

I guess it must have a problem with ext3 then.

Has anybody had success with downloading apps and games directly to the usb mount? Is it possible yet to substitute the usb slot for the main storage on the box?

Pretty sure that will require a custom kernel, i know on my phone i had to use a kernel that had extsd swap support to swap my sd card with internal storage.

Wouldn't it be possible to use the android equivalent of a symlink to do this? I thought I recalled doing this on phones that didn't support installing apps to external storage awhile back.
