but which one of them works
i have the impresion that only the line from the vold actually works :)

 

No it doesn't. the one line in vold.fstab is only there so when I unmount and remount, it mounts the correct INTERNALl SD to /mnt/external_sd (instead of the default EXTERNAL SD)

Below is what actually does all the majic during boot and relocates the INTERNAL SD to /mnt/external_sd and mounts the EXTERNAL SD to /mnt/sdcard.  The trick here is that the INTERNAL SD always gets mounted to /mnt/sdcard from a script that is located on a read only partition (it cant be written to even when the device is rooted).  So this is a work around that moves the mount to another location and unmounts /mnt/sdcard then finally mounts the EXTERNAT SD to /mnt/sdcard.  It works very well.

## swap internal/external sdcard
sleep 2
mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir -p /data/internal_sd
mount -o bind /mnt/sdcard /data/internal_sd
umount -f /mnt/sdcard
mount -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard
mount -o bind /data/internal_sd /mnt/external_sd

I will attach mine.

These are the only two lines you need in /system/etc/vold.fstab

dev_mount udisk /mnt/usb_storage auto /devices/platform/?usb20_host/usb

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9

 

And then add this to /system/etc/install-recovery.sh (if it's not there then add it)

## swap internal/external sdcard
sleep 2
mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir -p /data/internal_sd
mount -o bind /mnt/sdcard /data/internal_sd
umount -f /mnt/sdcard
mount -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard
mount -o bind /data/internal_sd /mnt/external_sd

Hi all

 

am new to all this, but have just bought the arnova 10d g3 tablet, and bought a 16gb class4 sd card

ok, i downloaded the external2internal program

 

i got 1/  which is   /mount/internal

2/ which is    /mount/SdCard

 

but part 3/ which says 'retrieve the external sd device (the mount command give it) it should point to the external folder 4/ update the user configuration with these options 5/ and tap on the button above to swap the internal/external'     I am lost with. i assume i have to enter something in the THE EXT SDCARD DEVICE ACCESS but not sure what.

 

should i also have DEFAULT SGS3 Roms checked, as well as SEND RESCAN  and USE PER DEFAULT

 

sorry if i sound like a noob but i am regarding these tablets :D

I got it to work without external2internal by adding my own script and altering the /system/etc/vold.fstab.

I atached the script and the moded vold .fstab in a post above (look for the VOLD.zip attachment here). That is all you need.

------

/system/etc/install-recovery.sh (if it's not there then add it)

## swap internal/external sdcard
sleep 2
mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir -p /data/internal_sd
mount -o bind /mnt/sdcard /data/internal_sd
umount -f /mnt/sdcard
mount -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard
mount -o bind /data/internal_sd /mnt/external_sd
##

-----

Add this line to /system/etc/vold.fstab

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9

And comment out the old dev_mount sdcard line

-----

AND REBOOT

It does need to be rooted, if you install the custom rom using "ARCTOOLS" from the app store then it will be rooted and will have Google Play installed, and use a rooted file explorer like GHOST COMMANDER or X-PLORE from google play.  Both files in the zip files go to /system/etc but it is better to edit the files and not overwrite them.  If install-recovery.sh doesn't exist then just copy mine to /system/etc.

The 16GB, have you tried formating it.  or maybe it is bad.  I am using a 32GB class 4 micro sd card just fine.

it already has play store cause i installed the rom upgrade from the arnova website.

but this doesnt mean i am rooted? right? how do i know if i am rooted

there is no arctools on googleplay store, i have installed ES file explorer tho, and just downloaded ghost commander

 

the 16gb stick is fine as it works in my gemini joytab 

 

my system folder has /APK folder, place both files in here?

You will need to install this custom rom from ARCTOOLS found in APPSLIB (as mentioned above), then you'll need a root enabled explorer like x-plore, ghost commander, etc...

right, am getting there.

i downloaded arctools, do i need to do anything with that like add firmware or something? cause when i access /system/etc through ghost commander and try to transfer your 2 files across i get a message saying

nothing was copied

-file not accessible

/system/etc/install-recovery.sh: open failed:EROFS (read only file system)

Ok,

i have rooted my tablet now.

Mcsgeek, would your added scripts to vold etc work on my 10d (not 10b)

 

i have installed link2sd and formatted myexternal sd card to 2 primary partitions (first fat32 1gb and 2nd is 6gb etx2) and created a link to sd card. but cant move it to sd card so swapping the external for internal seems to be the only way if i can get it to work
