Footmouth Editting Vold.fstab for LG Optimus M+

Hello guys,
I do not know if I am in the correct section to post this.

I am trying to edit the Vold.fstab on my LG Optimus M+, to swap the internal sd with the external one. Here is the code of the Vold.fstab file:

#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host

# If sdcard isn't exist, mount emmc partition

#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host
dev_mount extsdcard /mnt/sdcard/_ExternalSD auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host

I tried changing the number 1 for a 3 on msm_sdcc1 and the 3 for a 1 in msm_sdcc3. This resulted in a damaged internal sd card message on the phone. I'd be glad if you guys could give me a hand.

Thank you in advance.

it can be done but on other phones that it has been done on it cause several issues that usually resulted in it reverting back.

I am also really interested in this bit of coding. I want to do the same for my Optimus Elite, whose vold.fstab is really similar. The 1 and 3 you switched are 2 and 4 in my file, but that is the only noticeable difference. I have tried switching numbers and renaming the mount directories to no avail. And, I havent found another similar example in many hours of intermittent google searching. Most changes have no effect on how the system interacts with the memory locations, or just disable them entirely. I'm at a loss, but hopefully a more talented person will notice our trouble. When apps require additional data downloads, it would be the simplest solution for ensuring that there is always enough. Spotify is my current high memory gobbler because I dont get very good streaming and I download my playlists... Anyway, to luck!

Instead of changing the numbers like you did, try changing what it's referring to like this. Maybe it will work. I'm not responsible for any problems you encounter and it should be noted that, if it does work, you may experience force closes because android will be looking for apps you had installed on your internal sd that are now in your external sd. I would suggest moving all apps to your phone memory first and/or copying the entire sd card and then replacing it onto your external sd (now recognized as internal) so that the system recognizes everything exactly how it did before the mod.

Edit: don't waste your time. I tried it and it didn't work. Neither would mount.

The LG Optimus M+ launched as an affordable device for Metro PCS. It is also the successor to the LG Optimus M (Optimus One). But the specs haven't been improved as much as we would expect. The device comes with an 800 MHz processor, a 3.5-i... Read More
