Droid RAZR Users Can Now Use Their SD Cards as Internal Memory

Newer Android devices have more space than their predecessors—a lot more, in many cases. It wasn’t long ago that Android phones came with 512MB of space and users had to have an SD card if they wanted more content than that. Even some devices that were released as early as last year still rock 1 – 4 GB of internal memory, necessitating the need for an SD card. Even with the newest generations coming out with 16GB and 32GB of storage, users still seem to prefer their SD cards over the actual internal storage for ease of use and mobility.

For owners of the Motorola Droid RAZR, you can take it one step further. XDA Senior Member pajn has released a few easy-to-flash .zip files that will tell the RAZR to mount the external storage as internal storage and vice versa. That means that on boot, the external SD card becomes the internal SD card and vice versa. There are enough uses for this mod as it is, including making MIUI Music Player work, or for applications that don’t support being placed on external SD cards including applications with widgets.

In most cases, users will have to re-install many of their applications, but this is nothing a good old fashioned application restore won’t fix. For those who want to switch back to normal, yet another .zip will put it back to normal with ease. You can find everything you need to get started in the original thread. This mod is pretty cool and seems like it could be a stepping stone to something bigger. As usual, don’t forget to make back ups before attempting.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
