Switch Internal and External SD on the Galaxy Note II

Swapping the internal and external SD cards has always been a popular option. This type of modification is usually on older devices with limited internal storage, but some newer devices have received similar mods as well. With games getting as large as they are, some users can still use those larger storage devices to capacity just as quickly.

There is now an internal to external SD swap method for the international Samsung Galaxy Note II and the US variants as well. XDA Senior Member mattiadj released the mod for the Galaxy Note II. It is the same mod for all the variants, but you can find threads in the forums confirming that it works for the US variants.

It’s a fairly easy install method. Users have to reformat the target SD card into exFat or Fat32. Once that’s done, users download the required zip, based on how they formatted the SD card. Then it’s a simple flash in recovery and reboot, yielding swapped mounts. Many users are reporting that the mod works, but some are having issues. The problems seen are generally nothing serious, but it has been reported that music, video, and picture files show up twice in various applications. They aren’t actually there twice, though.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
