here i have a fix for xperia phones that are not allowing the users to use there sd card correctly.for this fix you need to have root

before attempting this i advise you do the following as i hold NO responsibilty
1. backup any files that require modification
2. make a full backup.zip and move this from sd to pc
3.backup all of your apps from internal memory so that after the change you can restore all app data to the "new" internal storage


assuming you have root and follow above

use any root explorer to browse to system/etc
find vold.fstab and rename to .bak
download vold.fstab for your device
transfer to phone (internal or sd)
use root explorer to copy file from (where you placed it ) to system/etc
reboot phone
recover all app data
now sd card should be working fully as internal storage

if you require a fix for the phones not here please send me vold.fstab and i will modify the file

Please note these files for the moment are for stock ICS

I think u must change the permission of the copied file to rw-r-r.... Is it not necessary....???

cant use sd card as MSC connectivity... Works only MTP connectivity...???

It is like swapping internal memory to External memory and vice verse rite...??

when using the sd card on the xpeira go the sd card wont be used for apps as standered all apps and app data are sent to the inernal
memory and not to your sd card this means when you have filled your small internal memory (4gb) no more apps games can be downloaded if you find that this is the case you can use is this to swap your sd card and internal memory around so that if u have a 32gb sd card like i do you can use this to store all the information on your phone (as you hope to be able to do with your sd card )
