    So I have been looking around on google already and can't find a solution.

    Does anyone know or have any insight on how to change the default storage location to SD (in this case _ExternalSD) ---> Which is basically what I'm trying to get rid of.

    As I posted earlier I'm trying to have Ubuntu run on it but the .sh script won't run correctly because it won't play friendly with the external card, and I want to move the image and script to the internal storage so that can be my "Ubuntu Partition" and have it completely run off of those 4 gb and have the phone use SD card as its default for folders (such as titanium backup, .android clockwork mod, .trashes lost.dir ECT.....)


    Any help would be VERY helpful and much appreciated with a big THANKS!

    Dont mess with it. You will screw your phone up. There is no way to switch them.

    Yup. Judging from that thread 3 people had problems and at least 1 had to replace their phone.

    Yeah, I close that thread out as fast as I can. I don't even want my phone to be tempted or even thinking about it. ahahaha

    Honestly i see no benefits that justify the risk. Works fine as it sits for me.
