How to make MicroSD SD Card as phone storage

Ever had a problem with your Android smartphone that application is only downloading to the phone storage and you can not move it to the MicroSD card?

Here is a quick solution. The following solution will only work on a rooted phone.

Please download and install ES File Explorer.

Enter it, Go to Menu>Settings>Root Settings Check ?Root Explorer? and accept both the ES prompt and SU prompt.

Then check Mount File System

Return to ES Main screen, Long press the first Favorites icon unless the path will turn to /

Go to /system/etc and press vold.fstab

Find there the following lines:

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard

emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_host/mmc0

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host/mmc1

Replace the sdcard with sdcard2 and sdcard2 with sdcard so that it will look like this:

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_host/mmc0

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host/mmc1

Now press the Menu button and press Save.

Restart your phone and now the ?Phone Storage? is your MicroSD card and most applications will be downloaded to it.
