Swap the Internal and External SD Cards on the RAZR i
Switching the internal storage and external storage is a topic we’ve discussed before. The practice is actually quite well known, as older devices had very little internal storage. Even though phones have much more abundant internal storage, the method remains. Now, Motorola RAZR i users can swap their external and internal cards.
The mod was posted by XDA Senior Member rickwyatt, and it’s actually a pretty simple process. This swaps the internal and external SD cards. So if you have a 64 GB SD card, you could essentially have 64 GB of internal storage. Additionally, this isn’t just for people who want to swap cards. It actually fixes an issue. As rickywatt explains:
i made this mod because as you no /data/media is linked to /sdcard so when you fill up your sdcard it also fill up your data
To pull it off, users will first need init.d support. If you don’t have it, rickywatt provides a link where users can go get it. Then it’s a simple matter of downloading the tool and running the .bat file. When the process is done, the swap will have been made and the storage areas will have been swapped.
