Well, no reason to just disable it. You can swap them however, though with the limited available development for your phone, there doesn't seem to be any out of the box solutions. You'll either have to try an app like this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...codlab.int2ext or follow a guide for say, an S3, and mod that to reflect the correct partition mounts and names for your particular phone and update. For some phones, a compatible kernel is needed for the swap. If that is the case for your phone, you are probably out of luck since there doesn't seem to be much of anything like that for you. Make sure to not only back up your phone, but internal and external storages before attempting this. Would also be good to be familiar with how to flash back to stock with Odin since that's about the only option you have to get back to normal if things don't work right.

Good job! As far as the swap - are you referring to virtual RAM swap?

Yea, not so sure about that part, unfortunately. I haven't had to do that manually before that didn't already have an established method for the particular phone. Glad the main part is working though!

That part will probably be pretty tricky because there isn't really any development for it, and almost certainly no source code to build the kernel yourself. Your best bet is to check out some other phones that use the same chipset that might have some development that you can kind of piggyback off of. These other phones would be similar: http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=pdamast...d=1&cpu=a21654

It looks like the Galaxy Y Plus (i9001) has a decent little development community. The guys there would probably be more helpful with figuring out stuff to do since it has a similar processor. Might try to befriend a kernel dev there and see if they could give you a hand.
