[MOD] SWAP External and Internal SD Card For S5 +
Yo all,as you know our device does not have much too much internal memory.So we cant install large HD games,and too many apps because of memory restrictions.So here is a guide to swap external with internal SD card.
This is before swapping


Just before u do this REMEMBER BACKUP YOUR PHONE.IT"S REALLY IMPORTANT!!!.
Refer to my earlier post of flashing CWM for the backup.

ALTHOUGH THIS MOD IS TESTED,I AM NOT BE BLAMED IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG.

Now,let's get our hands do the dirty work!

1 - Install Root Explorer or Root Browser.Any 1 is good.
2 - Copy every folder that is present in your internal sdcard to the external sdcard, so that your apps and games continue to work once you have swapped the sdcards.
3 - Browse to the location /system/etc and you will find a file named "vold.fstab"
4 - Open it with a Text editor and do the following Changes



DON"T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE.JUST CHANGE WHAT I HAVE HIGHLIGHTED!

Ta Da!!! You are done.Just Reboot you'r phone and see the magic!!



Just remember to format your new external sdcard( which was you'r internal) as you have already copied the file to the newly made internal card!!

1 - Open MTKdroid Tools with USB Debugging ON!
2 - Once your device is recognized click on Scatter From File.
3 - A file will be created.Save it anywhere where it is easily accessible with the custom recovery.img (CWM) in the folder.
4 - Download SP Flash Tools.Here is the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2650125
5 - Once Downloaded, open it and there click on scatter-loading and choose the saved file which you had recently created.
6 - Remember to choose only RECOVERY only.And then click on Download.
7 - Switch off your device and remove the battery.Once done Connect the USB to the device and after 2 second's insert the battery.The download process will start.
8 - When a message pops Download Ok,you have successfully flashed CWM!!.



PM ME IF YOU WANT ANY HELP!

Is the navigation buttons (lock button for opening the recovery, volume down for selection and volume up for enter) same or what ? by the way, builder.clockworkmod.com is redirecting to a link with a 404 not found if i click build after uploading the file and selecting touch recovery... does it work in your area ? please reply... if it works, try uploading it and creating a touch recovery for this phone... that would be a lot of help as touch is way better than using those messed up buttons to navigate through recovery...
by the way, for all those who have rooted their phone and are sick of that looooooooooong boot animation... use rom toolkit lite and disable the boot animation... this will disable that karbonn logo animation, but wont remove the image that is shown at first.(i.e. the girl with the multi coloured umbrella pic).
one more thing... you can flash the recovery.img through fastboot... easier method to do so...
(
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
fastboot flash recovery <<pathtorecovery/recoveryfilename.extension>>
[ eg: fastboot flash recovery C://adb/cwmrecoverys5plus.img ]
fastboot reboot
)

No it does not clear the dalvik cache because the swapping has no connection with it.The swap simply (kind of fools) the device into installing the data on the SD Card thinking that it is a Internal Storage.As for the the apps,you are already moving them to your new internal storage (ie.SD Card after swap)so you wont have the need to "reconfigure" them.Anyways when I did the above above mod I had some apps installed and no data was erased when I did the swap.
Try the internal external Swap.I have installed Modern Combat 4,Asphalt 8,Real racing 3,Dead trigger 2 and still have 1.5 GB free.Earlier I couldn't even install Real Racing 3.Do try.

The Lock button is for choosing the option while the Volume + & - is for up and down.Also u don't have to press the lock button for opening the recovery.
And did you try to flash CWM as I have mentioned the steps?

Nope. I still am trying to extract the stock Android system recovery 3e image file from my phone, so that I can generate a touch-based clockworkmod recovery from it. Anyone has Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus stock recovery.IMG file ? If anyone has it, then please upload it here. ClockWorkMod recovery builder isn't generating a touch-based recovery from the recovery file which I uploaded. If anyone can get a touch-based recovery from there and post the link to it here, I would be very thankful to you.
One more doubt. What will happen to the phone if I accidentally remove the external SD card? It doesn't go into a bootloop right? My phone never reboots properly except when I do a full data wipe.

Why do you need a touch based CWM?Just flash the custom recover .img file and be happy with it otherwise you will find more trouble.And what are you talking about the boot loop?.If it's about swapping then there is no problem of such things.

Either that or install a new camera app. I recommend A Better Camera by Almalence ( Free Version ) as it contains many features. If the gallery is not working, then you can install alternatives to that too.

A touch based recovery would be good for most phones and so, I thought, as CWM touch recovery is supported on kernels of Android ICS or more, I could try it out on this phone. Anyway... did you try flashing any of the ROMs whose links I had provided ? Please upload screenshots if you can.

Could anybody check whether there still are any working links to the Lewa OS for Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus ( By the Thunderboys team ) ? If so, please upload them here as this thread is the main thread for Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus... Also, could anybody upload screenshots of the custom ROMs ( links provided in post #10 ) ? Thanks in advance.

I haven't flashed any custom ROM till now.I just can't trust if they would get flashed successfully or not so I haven't tried them.
