Just thought I would share, I use these commands in a script to mount my external 32gb sdcard as /sdcard/.
Would be better if i could figure out how to get it to work as init.d however the external drive is mounted dead last in the boot order... Currently (without some init.d vodo) this needs to be manually "hot swaped" after boot.

umount /mnt/sdcard

mount -t vfat -o rw,umask=0000 /dev/block/vold/179:97 /mnt/sdcard

Note the numbers.. I learned these on another thread here but those numbers had to be changed for this phone.
More info on how to use these and the source for the original code here:

This can damage all the internal storage?
I think about trying to mount ext to sdcard to flash something in recovery, because I need the sdcard but it can't be mounted by itself.

Is there a permanent solution to this? All other methods don't work on Android 4.4
