    Sorry to say but I found no magic. I simply did a factory reset and a reformat of the SD card as external storage. The phone now sees and uses the SD card as external storage. I did not repeat the Activity Launcher 'experiment', I decided I can live with external storage. I see no reason to...

    Miui8 China & Google Play
