Hi everyone!

Here is my first mod for Galaxy Ace 2,

This mod allows move applications to real sd card,applications will use real sd card for datas (like games). And you can do it without root!

Installation progress:

1-Move applications on sd card to phone's storage (If exists)
2-Download Modded_VoldFstab_Installer.zip ( at Attachments)
3-Copy it to SD Card
4-Power off the phone and open recovery
5-Install Modded_VoldFstab_Installer.zip
6-Select "reboot system now"

How can I revert it?

1-Move applications on sd card to phone's storage (If exists)

3-Copy it to SD Card
4-Power off the phone and open recovery

If there was a Modded file there was always a original backup

I have not seen a zip file that can be flashed via the stock recovery in any of the other threads, so I think this is not such a bad idea.

Guys, appreciate the effort he's taken to make a zip flashable from stock recovery instead of pointing out his mistakes.

Thank you!

Finaly a vold.fstab that works like it should.

The others I've tried continued to move the apps to the 1.2Gb phone drive, this one finally moves the apps to the real sd card like you say... Guess 1001 threads are good after all

It doesn't make sense for me.
The only cause to swap data to sd is that games are bigger than the internal SD. But this does the other vold.fstab you can find here, too.
So why to use this one?

Because using the one included in Italian Job the "Move to SD" option doesn't move to the real sd, apps are still going to the virtual sd card of the phone.

Try moving some apps to the sd card and you'll see the available space of the virtual sd card go lower. This means that when we get to 1.2 Gb of apps we get an error message saying that there is not enough space even thou the real sd card may have plenty of space. I'm talking about the apks, not the data from games, data from games goes to the correct place.

The vold.fstab included here solved this problem for me, apps are now going to the real sdcard.

For what use this? Good ,big games have .obb file and this go to sd card
I have ace 2 one year and I never use all space for apk. Allways is free something like 600-700mb. Old moded vold.fstab is ok. Better do (if possible)
On stock vold.fstab (1.1/1.1/ext.sd card) I want to instal games directly on external sd card. Some games have that options but not all.

Well, I can tell you that many games/aplications apks occupy more than 100Mb (Anomaly Korea for example) and that every game/aplication I've installed had the option to move to sd (talking about going to Application Management and selecting the move to sd option after the game is installed). if you dont move them to the sd card and install a few big games, you will run out of space fast, I know I did...

Also I believe this is how the move to sd SHOULD behave, moving stuff to sd, dont you?
