I tried this exact mod a couple weeks ago & could not get it to work. It made my internal show up as both internal & external, and disable my SD card completely. I dunno what I did wrong, I followed the instructions exactly & I have a TW rom too.

Download and Flash perseus kernel, then flash mod again. It should work after that. It does not work on note2core or saber kernels. I only tested on those three.. And make sure you download the correct mod zip as there are different variants depending on the kernel you have and if your sd card is exformat or fat32. I also recommend a format of the sd card before doing all these to start fresh.
Best way is to do a full wipe, flash rom, flash radio, flash perseus kernel and lastly the mod all before the first boot.

International note II and all usa note II variants. Also on the GS III.
The key is to have the right kernel, and to download the right mod zip for your situation...read fourth post..

I noticed one of the biggest problems with storage is that apps that do save stuff to SD card were still saving to internal storage. For example Titanium Backup was set to save to storage card but was saving to an internal storage folder called "External Storage". That app has specific setting to move the backups which saved me over a GB of space. I'll try ExtSd2InternalSd next time I upgrade ROMs.

Just remember that your "internal" storage actually becomes your sdcard and your sd-external is your internal built in memory... so is reverse.
For example when you use your camera for the first time it will ask to storage on your external..but remember that your external is no longer that but rather your internal, so if you want pics saved on your new "internal" choose no. save to phone.

Only issue I had was camera fail. Followed the op instructions but the rom my rom has aroma and it does an automatic reboot after rom is flashed.

you can flash it after too...just make sure to wipe cache and dalvik. For the camera force closing just clear data and cache under applications.

Got my 64 gig class 10 sd card Monday, and clean flashed Jedi Master 7 with Perseus kernel then this mod and it works great! I have every app, game, emulator, GPS program installed and still have 40 gigs left. Phone runs awesome too. No more storage worries or making room for new apps. I'd recommend clean flashing, it seems like most people who have issues are not starting out fresh.

I already flashed the Jedi 8X and the perseus kernel and I have a few questions:

1. Is it too late to flash the ExtSd2InternalSd mod now?
2. Do I have to do all the steps you mentioned again?
3. I have the SD card formated to extFAT and have a few GB of mp3 files in it. Would those file be wiped after the mod?
4. What would happen if I flash a new ROM in the future? Would I lose all the data in the "internal memory" i.e. the physical MicroSD card?

Thanks

I already had the perseus kernel when I tried this. I guess I'll try it again though. I really wanna get this working. Thanks.

I could be wrong but I think the mid has to be installed after clean flash and before the initial reboot after the Rom has been flashed. I flashed Rom, kernel then the mod then reboot. No issues with this method.

    I'm using a class 4 32gb card and it does burst and 1080 fine. If you can find a class 10 64gb card for under 50 then go for it! Sounds like a great deal... share the details if you do, thanks

    Hey I've been looking for a month or so and Amazon prices have come down! They are having a Goldbox sale for today only and the Ultra 64gb is only $46.99! Hope you manage to get in on one!

    :fingers-crossed: Clicky thanks if you got in on one! :highfive:

    Can you successfully take a full 20 shots of burst shot and record a 1080p video? I thought the reason why the Camera asks is because the speed of an external card will be slower than the internal storage, which is why it requires burst shots to be saved internally.

    Mind checking? Thanks in advance!

    Yes but it dramatically depends on the sd card speed...for example mine is a class 10. Bit if you have a class 4 or lower you would not be able to do it technically.
