Preparation:

METHOD:

4. Click on new vold.fstab file nd keep it pressed to open the menu and click on permisions and set them to rw_r__r__

Luvk1412 is very proud to show you all the way to increase the internal memory of your.tablet. The way works on all the Funbooks(Alpha,P300,Infinity,Pro,Talk)(tested) but dont know wether it works on other tablets such as Galaxy tab, karbonn smart tab etc. but it should work there also(not tested)
Preparation:
1. YOUR TABLET NEEDS TO BE ROOTED.
2. For rooting funbook infinity you can follow this thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1959026
3. Install root explorer in your tablet. It is a paid app on playstore, so i cannot give its apk file as it may lead to spam but u can download it from google or 4shared.com from where i download for free. You can also use ES file Manager(its free on play store but i recomend root explorer)
4. Now you are all set for increasing Ur internal memoery.

METHOD:
1. Download the attachment and extract it and transfer the file "Vold.fstab"to ur sd card.
2. Now open root explorer and grant root permisions to it. Go to System > etc and copy the original vold.fstab file to a safe location(if there is any problem u can restore it)
3. Now copy the downloaded file vold.fstab, Go to System > etc And delete the original file and paste the duplicate one.......
4. close root explorer.Shut down your tablet and start it again
5. Go to settings >storage and see the MAGIC
I know you are shocked

1: Not shocking.
2. Method is very very dangerous since you still cant get any working firmware.
3. Many SD Card Swap scripts work the same way.
4. Since you are playing with vold.fstab, keep it in mind that you may end up with currupted SD card.
5. AND MOST IMPORTANT: YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT SYSTEM FILES FROM ONE TAB TO ANOTHER.
6. Never edit these files in windows notepad. Use Notepad++

Google: SD CARD swap...

I swaped the file as per the given procedure now when I booted up I am getting message "Damaged SD card" asking me if I want to format the SDcard

My external sd is now detected as internal showing me total 32gb space but a strange this happen with me is that many apps I had moved to sd card using Apps2sd they are not showing as installed, so I have to swap back the file bring all apps to internal sd then do this operation once again.

That message will come....u hve to compromisewith that...as u are gaining a 32 gb of internal storage....by the way I want to make sure are u using infinity only or anothrr tab or device
For games and apps
Before swapping copy ur android folder to the external sd card...and then swap...this wud save ur most of apps and games but some u hve to reinstall ...
Advice...use titanium bakup and bakup all ur apps ..copy the bakup folder to ur pc...then uninstall all of apps...swap and then restore using titanium bkup

I cant compromise for a reason that every time it boots up that warning pops up this tablet is going to be mostly used by kids & if they click on that warning "format card" all data will be wiped in few seconds. If there can be a way to stop that warning pop up that would be great & will be a safe option.

I am indeed using funbook p275 infinity tablet. I will try once again with swap & test the benefits of the swap versus danger of formatting 32gb card by kids.

My understanding is that we only gain 32gb in exchange of internal (2nd partition) of SD card not the 1st partition on which the OS is running which means there are still many apps with big sizes we cant install as they need to be on 1st partition they don't allow apps to be moved to SD card so this gain in reality still does not let you gain more space on 1st partition as it seems it remains locked with a limited space.

Am I right in understanding this swap gain?

No need to flash again...this warning wud pop up every time...
Clicking on that warning does nothing...
It will not format ur sd card...u can try.
Actually while creating that script I was not able to delete this warning but was able to void its action....I hope u understand..
