I tried to use 11extsd2internalsd file with unit.d but I think I'm doing something wrong or it doesn't work for me. Sdcard0 folder is empty and and size of it is 2GB. My sdcard(32GB) is still under sdcard1 folder. I can't attach any screenshots because when I'm trying to take one it says that screenshot cannot be taken. I think it's because of this failed swap, because when I turn of init.d screenshots are working.

First of all, I am speaking from first hand experience. Second, DON'T SWAP THE MEMORIES. I have barely lived through 3 weeks of swapped memory and it. is. horrible. There is way too much lag that remains even after reversing the switch. For example, when pushing the notification bar it really lags. Also, when you wake up your phone after it has gone to sleep, it will have to read memory and it will lag a lot. Just use foldermount or link2sd. Sure, bothering to link is really bad, but having a stutter-less phone is way better.

What SD did you use? My Class 10 worked fine

I've got class 10 too, but it doesn't work. internal sdcard0 and external sdcard1 are still in the same places. Maybe I'm doing something wrong...

From what I see, you're running 4.3 on your phone. I honestly never did it on 4.3. Perhaps, it's beacuse you're not doing this by this method? That one worked for me, the terminal emulator method just sucks(1 typo and you're dead).

If you ARE doing it by that method, then probably it is because the apps aren't updated for this firmware?
