As the xperia TiPO, has 2GB internal to my surprise to install NFS MW, download MW NFS data 1.5gb then, to want to put another full game SD told me not have free space ,and I said as I have SD card of 16gb and 10gb free, Then I noticed that he in the data move from internal SD to external SD asked me data back down then I gave myself the task of finding a solution and I remembered this: (works with any phone that has internal memory and accepts SD CARD)

First:
- Root Required
- Root explorer , es explorer or other file explorer with root powers
- time

Quote:

I will leave the file in mediafire but just show them how to do it = D by his own hand = D go to

Code:
system/etc and search
vold.fstab
edith with  notepad
Find the following:

Code:
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *[
dev_mount ext_card /mnt/ext_card auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *]
change ext_card for sdcard and sdcard for ext_card

Code:
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *[
dev_mount ext_card /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/ext_card 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0
#MTD-BSP-LC-uSD_and_eMMC_coexistence-00 *]
give 644 permissions and reboot


Screenshot:



For XPERIA E

Original
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0
dev_mount ext_card /storage/sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host
Changed
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard1 16 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc0

Not change this number only change ext_card and SDCARD text
that number is the default in vold.fstab

cheers.

I've just did it on my Xperia J and it worked!

Now, I have 2 GB completely free... can we allocate them somehow to phone internal memory?

Assuming you have Root Explorer, go to "Permissions" and tick all the 3 items of the first column and the first one of the second column. Untick all the others.
