After partitioning SD card in FAT32 (1st partition, primary) and EXT2(2nd partition, primary) android system can't mount FAT32 partition. Notification area displays error message: "Empty external SD card: external SD card empty or file system..."

Link2SD's script is mounting EXT2 partition and I can link apps to it.

Tried following command through ADB shell which mounted FAT32 partition (it was visible to file manager and could be used), but the change was not noticed by android (notification area still displays the error message) and I has to be typed in after every reboot:

mount -rw -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 <mountpoint> (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2023&nocache=1)

Any idea how to solve this?

reformat your sdcard n try this partitions;
- FAT > primary > as minimum = 7Mb
- EXT2 > primary > as you needs
- FAT32 > primary > as remains size

idk idea what for that FAT partition, but that's all what you need to work on stock...
good luck then

Thanks, although I know how to partition SD card. I'm just lazy to do it because my phone is all set up the way I like.
