    Lightbulb [Mounting Mod] How to Get EXT-SDcard To Mount Inside INT-SDcard


    First off I did a lot of research and found how to mount the ext-sdcard inside the int-sdcard automatically with a lot of trial and error. This only needs to be done if you are planning on porting a rom that does not have an ext-sdcard mount built into vold.fstab file like our Thrive does. This is a quick mod tutorial. If you do not know what you are doing than please do not attempt. I am not responsible for your device(s). Try at your own risk. This mod worked on my Shazaam rom. Here we go....
    All these step are as if you are working from your computer on a rom.zip. No adb guidence given.

    Unpack the rom.zip....

    1. Mod The Build.Prop inside /system/ folder. Open the file with Notepad++ to edit. Copy and paste the code below at the bottom of your build.prop file and save

    # Mount the externel SD card, too

    2. Mod The Vold.Fstab file inside /system/etc/ folder. Open the file with Notepad++ to edit. Locate the line containing sdcard2 line and delete that entire line. Replace with code below, then save and close.

    dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/sdhci-tegra.2/mmc_host/mmc1

    3. You must copy over the vold file from the /system/bin folder from the stock Thrive rom inorder for this to work.

    4. Final and hardest mod, Modding the boot.img ramdisk files. Mod the init.antares (If you do not know how to unpack and pack the boot.img then stop here, and forget about this mod until you do know how):

    First locat the line:

    mkdir /mnt/sdcard 0000 system system

    Replace with:

    mkdir /mnt/sdcard 0666 system system

    Insert the code below right above # create directory for mounting usb drives:

    exp ort EXTERNAL_STORAGE2 /mnt/sdcard/sdcard2
    mkdir /mnt/sdcard/sdcard2 0666 system system
    symlink /mnt/sdcard/sdcard2 /sdcard2

    Repack the boot.img. Build your rom with these mods in place and the ext-sdcard will automatically mount inside the int-sdcard. Enjoy......

    seems interesting, i won't attempt such a thing since i'm no expert. but just out of curiosity, how will data and storage be written if there's two "internal sd" storages? like lets say u copy and paste a file, how would you know it went into the actual external card and vice versa?
