I assume you know how to edit Vold.fstab, but confused on swapping which with what.

The quickest and safest way to figure out this is using root file explorer.
At first you need to find out where exactly your device installing apps by default. Best way is to search for the recent app you installed.

Next thing, insert your external SD card with some specific file in it.

Now again using the file explorer u can find out how your device naming the external SD card by searching the specific file.

Once you find out these two locations, whats remaining is just edit the file accordingly swapping these two locations...

All the best and post here once u done ...

The permission of the file system should be changed to Read and Write to be able to edit the file vold.fstab . This can be done only if your device is
Rooted. If it is rooted you can easily change it using Root file explorer or terminal emulator.

Reply back if you have any queries..

I don't want to change internal and external storage, I just want to change to mount point from mnt/sdcard to mnt/sdcard/0 on my LG optimus g running 4.1.2.

There is some not needed stuff and then this: LGE_CHANGE For MTP
#jungyub.jee@lge.com sdcard path change /mnt/sdcard/external_sd ->/storage/external_SD
#dev_mount sdcard2 /mnt/sdcard/external_sd auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/external_SD auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount sda /storage/USBstorage auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host
dev_mount sdb /storage/USBstorage2 auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host
dev_mount sdc /storage/USBstorage3 auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host
dev_mount sdd /storage/USBstorage4 auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host
dev_mount sde /storage/USBstorage5 auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host
dev_mount sdf /storage/USBstorage6 auto /devices/platform/msm_hsusb_host

Don't know how to edit it, could anyone help me?

I edited my vold file and put it in my system/etc folder and it switched by external and internal sd's, but if I reboot my tab, any app installed to my SD card says it's not installed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Original:
Code:
# Mounts the first usable partition of the specified device
#use this line to support VIRTUAL CDROM.And you can define the directory where you want to mount
loop_mount loop /mnt/VIRTUAL_CDROM
dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0/external_sdcard auto /devices/platform/AMLOGIC_CARD/card_host/memorycard0 /devices/platform/aml_sd_mmc.0
#dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 3 /devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.0/mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0:0001/block/mmcblk0 nonremovable,encryptable
