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.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

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!
