Lightbulb [FIXED] MicroSD Mounter for XOOM HC 3.2 ROOT Users (Read/Write!)

All,

Created a quick app to re-mount the microSD card as read/write for rooted Motorola XOOM Honeycomb 3.2 users. This app simply dismounts and remounts the microSD card in its "stock" location as read/write. Optionally, you can also add a mount point to /sdcard/external (which is friendlier for some apps).

I hope this helps some people out, I know I like it.

APK Download V0.1b
** FIXED Force Close when /sdcard/external folder doesn't exist **

BTW: I don't have enough posts to put this in development, where it belongs. Mods - Feel free to move this thread as appropriate.

edit: This app is still under development, use of this app is at your own risk. The app will forcefully dismount/remount the sdcard, so any active access to the sdcard is affected, and under extreme cases can result in data loss.

I'm adding a lot more error checking, validation to minimize any chances of data loss. Also, I'm working on hot-swap sdcard support, remount-on-boot support, and a widget to easily get sdcard status.

Installed and granted su permission. App force closes immediately on launch. I'm using rooted stock 3.2 on US wifi only Xoom.

I figured it out. I fixed the error, and have updated the link in the original post to point to the new app.

This is exactly what I've been looking for.
Thanks so much for enabling my apps to run normal again

edit if boot on startup option added would be awesome

I dont know what this whole mess is about read/write but read/write works perfectly without any of this.

Worked since I put 3.2 on my device.

If you use root explorer, you can read/write to the sdcard no problem with HC 3.2, but if you try as a normal user, you can read-only. So apps can't store data on the sdcard.
