This thread is made for multiple devices.


I'll make files to swap, i.e Use Externel Sd card as Internel Sd card which are flashable via stock recovery without rooting.​


For those who doesnt want to root.


Currently supported devices:-

1.)Mediatek mt6589 devices
2.)Mediatek mt6577 devices
3.)Vega racer im770k




P.S:- If you want to request a device, do upload
vold.fstab
from /system/etc folder of your android. ;)




Please mention you DEVICE MANUFACTURER and DEVICE MODEL.
EX:- "MICROMAX A116" not just "MMX A116" or "a116"

Procedure

HOW TO:-​



1.) Download test file from Post no. 3/4 meant for your device.

2.)Place update.zip in / folder (main folder) of your Internel Sd card.

3.)Switch off phone and boot in Recovery (you should know how to).

4.)Choose option to
Apply update.zip from sdcard.

5.)Let it complete.
A yellow line will appear and thean a message will come "Installation complete"

6.)Switch on your phone and see magic in storage section of settings.



In stock recovery:-

To change options, press volume up and down.
To select 'install from sd card' option press power buttons to select.
Select update.zip using same method, after installation, it says installation complete.

Works Perfectly on A116

Hi

This solves elegantly a hair-pulling issue of having to swap the storage partitions, without rooting...

Was extremely helpful since due to our corporate limitations, our android phones cannot be rooted since we run Good for Enterprise (Good Enterprise GFE )

So it was a matter of either choosing GFE or storage... this solves

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
