I had a look at the instructions, and my brain just switched off!
I don't think I've got the confidence to attempt anything like this, yet.

But, well done for putting the instructions together.
I hope lots of members will appreciate it.

you need to create a new directory by right clicking. an then click on new directory. make sure you rename new directory to META-INF.

open the META-INF file you have downloaded drag the content of the file into the META-INF on the phone.

Hello I did this a couple months ago and had no problems but recently I rebooted my phone and noticed so far the stock music player and gallery do not recognise any files I have on my SD Card which is now my internal memory. For example the music player doesn't have any of my songs from the SD and if I take a screenshot it does not appear in the gallery app, but if I look for the files I want in my files app on the phone they are there. Strange huh?

Excellent instructions thank you, my sons 18160 now has 32gb internal (shrinking by the minute as he installs games)

One problem though, sometimes (not always) when he phone comes back from standby the sd card is not mounted correctly as there are no files in My Files and apps are unavailable. Have to reboot the phone to get them back.

any ideas?

Sorry for the absence, My Ace2 overheated a few weeks ago and im getting it back tomorrow, so will update to JB and check then.

It should work, as the files modified are before the OS kicks in, if you have any more questions, im much more active on Overclock.Net (find me as PedroC1999) or Skype - liveedrocaetano2009_1
