    Has anyone had any success with swapping their internal memory with your sd card ?

    I keep getting low memory and insufficient memory errors from Google Playstore.

    I've managed to swap phone memory (normally /mnt/sdcard) with SD card no problem (normally /mnt/sdcard/ext_sd). This pretty much solved my space issues along with moving apps to "phone memory" (ie my external SD card)

    I got it to work but some of my apps were still on the 1gb that was left over from the rom and kept saying that I didn't have enough space even though. I have 3gb internal and 20 gigs on the sd card.

    About how many apps do you have installed?

    You would need to edit your void.stab in system/etc there's on xda on it.

    Tried this>> ICS swap vold.fstab*

    dev_mount sdcard2 /mnt/sdcard/ext_sd emmc /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmc_host dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc. 3 /mmc_host


    This is what I tried but didn't work
    Edit: Red numbers should be swapped
