Hey everyone,

Found this mod for the Galaxy S (Or SGSII, not sure what the i9003 is), which switches the Internal and External SD cards, according to the Android OS. Personally, I have a lot more space of my external SD and would like games and such to store their data there, instead of on my smaller internal SD. Some apps like Titanium backup can change their data locations, but Games such as Gameloft games and the like cant have their game data moved to the External SD card atm.

This looks like a great alternative to this issue, could this hack be adapted to the G2x?

Although I could see how you would think this would be in development, this post should actually go in Q&A.

That being said, this would be a very useful modification.

Edit: My apologies. Apparently you posted in precisely the right forum. My apprehension arose from the fact that so many people say 'BUT WHAT ABOUT THIS MODDD??!?!' and it just clutters things up so my immediate reaction was to motion to have it moved. Good deal bringing it to Krylon and Tweezit's attention

I couldnt decide between Q&A and Development for this topic, as it involves porting or adapting a hack for another phone to the G2x.

MODS: Please move this to Q&A, if necessary.

EDIT: Apparently not, this seems to be a development topic now

Here is a file Be warned I have not tested this. If it messes your phone up I am not held responsible. **Personally I would let another dev look at this to be on the safe side as I am not 100% sure on this.**

You will have to extract it and use root explorer to push to /system/etc/

Oh I needed to clarify this was on 2.2.2 so it may differ on 2.3.

Since we have a little interest, we'll leave it for a day or so and see if anything comes of it.
I've PM'd krylon to take a look at Tweezit's vold. (sounds like a nasty STD).

Later guys ^^

I'm looking at this now. Your biggest issue is you are going to have to have 3 different versions... well... in reality 2 different versions. CM based and Non-CM Based.
And if someone flashes the wrong one...they are hosed and will have to restore from a backup

ok, after reviewing Tweezits vold, Bionix vold, and CM7 vold, tweezit's would break mounting.
The reason being, with the introduction of Tegra, the vold changed for it.

I'll have to do some testing, but making the internal to external switch should be fairly easy.

Is there a way to have setting like a switch to interchange between the two
