    Replace file vold.fstab in the folder system /etc and set permissions to rw-r--r-- then reboot your phone...

    PS: You have to insert your SD card before...

    I can't replace the file either - it wont allow it.

    How is it done?

    Hi! This is my first post, and it won't be the last one. Does this "hack" mean that App2SD app is not needed?

    Thanks in advance

    I once saw an option like 'swap SD' in a touch recovery for Hongmi but currently I am on CWM recovery because with the other the backup was not working.
    Anyway not sure if this does the right thing.

    I cannot upload the original file as I am also on 3.11.29 :confused:

    But why do you want to revert?

    You mean to store them in your external sd card and not in the phone memory. If so by installing root browser app from play store, that is happening automatically.

    For JHBCNAL5.0 used this:

    Code:
    dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.1/mmc_host
    dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard0 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.1/mmc_host
    
    thanks siba01 of miui.es
