Extract The vold.fstab And Place It In /System/etc

All This Does Is Swaps The Internal With The SD Card, Making Your SD Card The Internal Memory.

There Is No SD Card Problem.

Does that mean that all Apps will be installed to the Ext. SD Card and operate as if it were installed to the Internal Memory or is there some other purpose for this mod?

Correct, Your SD Card Will Become The Internal Memory. So When You Go Into Root Explorer Or What You Use, Your SD Card Will No Longer Be "sdcard-ext" It Will Be Just "sdcard".

I just want to point out that while it's a useful hack when you're trying to port stuff from another phone to your x2, it becomes inherently a bad idea. Looks good on paper and it does work buyer there's a host of hidden problems doing this.

My advice, just say no kids.

Thanks for responding, Used my brain and restored from a previous b/u. My only worry was that i some how lost all info on the ext and lost the b/u file!!! Well I sucked it up and took a chance it restored. I guess the file i deleted was the original and not the replacement file!! What do you think?

Somehow I dont think the replacement file ever made it on the card and when I deleted the file I deleted the original file!!! What possible draw backs was he talking about? And whats this about CM7

As Far As Drawbacks No Idea. Unless He's Referring To When Installing Apps That You Need To Change The Path In Which It's Stored, Removing The -ext Part But When I'm Using Root Explorer And I Wanna Go Into My SD Card It Would Piss Me Off When I First Got The Phone That I Couldn't Remember That The DX2 Had It Listed As -ext.

So in essence you would have to change from auto select to sdcard when installing apps. Do you still have to change the file name manually!!!! Does the system automatically see that there is no sd/ext and install to sd. Make me smart Mikey

What I Meant By Changing The Save Location Is That For Me I Like Everything Saved On My SD Card. Example Titanium Backup By Default It's Installed To See "sdcard-ext" Which With This "Hack" Is Now The Internal Memory Of The Phone Requiring Me To Remove The "-ext". Your Phone Now Sees Your SD Card As Internal Memory By Default. Leaving Your True Internal Memory Listed As "sdcard-ext" That Means I Have 4GB Of Space There Which I Never Intend To Use. It's Just Basically A Swap Of The Internal Memory And SD Card.
