Hi there,

I got a little problem swapping the "internal" sdcard with the external_sd card (64gb micro SD). I tried some ways already:

- App "external 2 internal"
- Add this line "persist.sys.vold.switchexternal=1" to /System/build.prop
- Try to modify the vold.fstab in etc folder, but there is no file with that name. Only a file called vold, but it contains only bytecode

All of them fails =(

I'm running CM 11 (cm-11-20140104-SNAPSHOT-M2-xt897).

I would say it's an easy task, done with 1 or 2 simple commands in a shell, isn't it? Please help me.

Thanks a lot.

Greetings Meik

There were some options for this added to customized builds of CM10.2...

But this has not persisted for CM11. Emulated storage makes this quite a bit more difficult than it used to be.

I guess most of us just "deal" with the small 8gb internal SD.

Since yesterday I go rid of the emulated sdcard mount.

It involved hacking boot.img and framework-res.apk to be inline with the legacy devices like the nexus one.

Now I just have the external sd mounted as /sdcard and all the internal memory on /data is available for apps.

The storage overview also correctly displays the configuration. And it should now be possible to move apps to sd, at least the menu entries are shown.

I will try to put together a flashable zip and start a new thread so everybody can easily achieve this.

Stay tuned!
