I am releasing this mod for swapping the internal and external sdcard for ANY Android Phone or Tablet!

Further requests for file modifications should be made here only.

Q. Why would you want to swap these memory locations?
A. Internal storage is generally 1 GB, 2 GB or at max 4 GB (in case of mid-end devices), which gets filled up really fastly once you install one or two HD games. External sdcard on most devices can be of upto 32 GB. Thus swapping them will give a lot more breathing space for the devices to get installed!

Q. How to swap?
A. Here's how to do it Upload your device's vold.fstab file (find it in /system/etc using root explorer or solid explorer or ES explorer) anywhere on the net and post a reply to this thread with a link to your uploaded file. And I shall give a modified vold.fstab file which you can replace using the instructions I have given in the link above. Post your device's name along with the link to the file so that I can add it in the list below!

Here's a pic that will make it clear what this mod is meant to do.

The below alternatives can help out if swapping the supposed lines don't help.

Alternatives available for phones which have internal sdcard but this mod doesn't work:

Automagic script:

Directory Bind: An alternative to this is the Directory Bind app which will let you link files from internal sdcard to the external sdcard. But using the app is cumbersome and it will require you to make links for each and every folder you want o move to the external sdcard. This mod does it all at once!

Root External 2 Internal SD: Root External 2 Internal SD does the exact same thing this mod does. So, if this mod doesn't work out for you, you must give this app a shot here:

Alternatives available if your phone doesn't have an internal sdcard:
Don't worry if your phone doesn't have an internal sdcard, by partitioning your sdcard you can still gain more internal memory. Read this guide to know how.

Currently confirmed devices with links to modified vold.fstab files:
  1. For Micromax A110
  2. For Sony Xperia Sola
  3. For HTC Amaze 4G
  4. For Sony Xperia Go
  5. For Sony Xperia Miro

Looking for some replies to help you guys out to fix this annoying thing.

Is there any chance for the S4 mini I9195?
