Swap Internal SDcard With External SDcard for Stock 4.0.4

-------------------------------------------------------------


!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR STOCK ROM !!!!!!!!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Quoted from CyanogenMod team


Code:
   Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device,
I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
 */
* When using this mod make sure you dont remove the microsd whilst tab is powered up



information :
Iv tested this for a few days iv got a 16gb card in the samsung galaxy tab and it is all working great
i made this mod because as you no /data/media is linked to /sdcard so when you fill up your sdcard it also fill up your data.

Code:
/dev: 351936K total, 76K used, 351860K available (block size 4096)
/mnt/asec: 351936K total, 0K used, 351936K available (block size 4096)
/mnt/obb: 351936K total, 0K used, 351936K available (block size 4096)
/system: 1233648K total, 1124168K used, 109480K available (block size 4096)
/data: 4809668K total, 542336K used, 4267332K available (block size 4096)
/cache: 705512K total, 11984K used, 693528K available (block size 4096)
/efs: 20144K total, 4220K used, 15924K available (block size 4096)
/mnt/sdcard: 15549952K total, 12869152K used, 2680800K available (block size 327
68)
/mnt/extSdCard: 15549952K total, 12869152K used, 2680800K available (block size
32768)
Things working are :
(1)Media Transfer Protocol (2) External SDcard being mounted to /sdcard
(3) /data/media is no longer used as /sdcard
(4) Working after reboot
(5) No external applications are used as this mod uses init.d scripts

How to :
move to External SDcard and flash with clockwork recovery

Download :
from Mediafire here

Thanks to :
ketut.kumajaya for hes init.d script in init.rc

Hey rickwyatt, thanks for posting this. Question: since this involves a modified boot image, will it work on other 31xx variants like the 3113? I don't know enough to know if boot images are model-specific. If this won't work on the p3113, would you be able to provide the steps you took to modify the boot image?
