Prompt [Tool] Swap Internal SDcard With External SDcard no init.d need UPDATE

Swap Internal SDcard With External SDcard

!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR STOCK ROM !!!!!!!!!!

You will need a unlocked bootloader

Quoted from CyanogenMod team


Code:
   Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device,
I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
 */
* When using this mod make sure you dont remove the microsd whilst phone is powered up




information :
Iv tested this for a few days iv got a 16gb card in the motorola razr I and it is all working great
i made this mod because as you no /data/media is linked to /sdcard so when you fill up your sdcard it also fill up your data

Code:
root@smi:/ # df
df
Filesystem             Size   Used   Free   Blksize
/dev                   484M    76K   484M   4096
/system                  1G   734M   469M   4096
/cache                 629M    10M   619M   4096
/data                    5G   640M     4G   4096
/pds                     7M     4M     3M   4096
/mnt/asec              484M     0K   484M   4096
/mnt/obb               484M     0K   484M   4096
/mnt/sdcard             14G     8G     6G   32768


Things working are :

(1) Media Transfer Protocol
(2) External SDcard being mounted to /sdcard
(3) /data/media is no longer used as /sdcard
(4) Working after reboot

How Too use :
(1) Extract to desktop
(2) Ensure USB debugging is enabled and phone is connected to pc
(3) run run.bat

this will give you 5gb for data and and only data and if you got a 16gb micro sdcard it will be mounted at /sdacrd

so
5gb /data
16 /sdcard

it will not touch any other partition
it is only a init.d script and a mod in framework-res

It's depend your sd class card..

Make a benchmark with AnTuTu to compare which is faster between your internal and external card.

Just a question, maybe stupid, but somebody know if I use a sd card faster than the internal it'll increase the reactivity and the speed ? Like on a laptop when we change the SSD.

If it is faster, yes it will.
You improve read and writing speed, so apps will be a bit faster to launch. Sometimes almost not noticeable, sometimes really faster
Current Devices: brand new HTC Desire 601 White
Bootloader UnLocked
ROM: Stock rooted
Current Kernel: Stock


Tablet: Galaxy Tab 2
ROM CyanogenMod 10.1 - Android 4.2.2
Kernel Stock CM
Tablet UI patch

If you help me, i remember where is Thanks Button !
