i have a pipo max m2 3g with tnt rom verison 2...has 2gb ram for apps, nearly 13 GB nand flash internal memory and i have mounted sd card 32 gb which is seen in storage..

now when i download apps it is either downlaoded in 2gb ram space or if i choose sd..then in the 13Gbinternal memory.

i have installed apps2sd but it shows 2gb as phone(probably bec of tnt mod sg1777) and the 13 GB as sd(its actually internal memory)
i dont see the external sd..so how do i transfer all my apps to external sd from the 2GB as well as 13GB internal memories?

suggestions welcome..

also can i save apps n games downloaded from playstore directly in external sd card by default?is there any hack/ mod for this??

regards

Install ES Files Manager and execute it.
Click on "Favourites" icon (a star) and you should see external_sd link.

Anyway... it seems that 32 Gb SD are not well accepted by our Pipo. I own a 16 Gb class 10 and it works fine. But other users seem to have issues with 32 Gb cards, despite of the class.

..maybe with the menu of Es files Manager? did you give a try almost?

or with titanium backup, there is an option where you can move apps

in an other partition/sd_card/external_sd card.

I am not an expert, but probably the link2sd can move apps to something mounted as /mnt/sdcard and in case of Pipo this is it's internal memory. Therefore it would be probably needed to somehow change the respective mounting points for internal memory and external flash during boot, but I don't know how to do it.


Edit:
I have found same problem described in a polish forum for a Freetab 9702 with JB with memory looking like:

Internal RAM- 2gb
Internal Storage (seen as sdcard) about 3,5gb
external storage (external SD card)

After modification:
Internal RAM- 2gb
Internal Storage- (external sdcard)
external storage- (internal ram seen now as external sd card, about 3,5gb)



What do we need ?
Rooted tablet with ICS or JB
File manager with access rights for system folders and write rights

1. Start file manager and go to: /system/etc/vold.fstab
Open the file and you will see:
## Vold 2.0 Generic fstab
## - San Mehat (san@android.com)
##

#######################
## Regular device mount
##
## Format: dev_mount <label> <mount_point> <part> <sysfs_path1...>
## label - Label for the volume
## mount_point - Where the volume will be mounted
## part - Partition # (1 based), or 'auto' for first usable partition.
## <sysfs_path> - List of sysfs paths to source devices
######################

## Example of a standard sdcard mount for the emulator / Dream
# Mounts the first usable partition of the specified device
#dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.2/mmc_host/mmc1
dev_mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9/mtdblock9
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/platform/rk29_sdmmc.0/mmc_host/mmc0
dev_mount udisk /mnt/usb_storage auto /devices/platform/usb20_host/usb
## Example of a dual card setup
# dev_mount left_sdcard /sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.2/mmc_host/mmc1
# dev_mount right_sdcard /sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc1

## Example of specifying a specific partition for mounts
# dev_mount sdcard /sdcard 2 /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.2/mmc_host/mmc1

Most important are two lines:
dev_mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9/mtdblock9
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/platform/rk29_sdmmc.0/mmc_host/mmc0

2. Change them to:

dev_mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/rk29_sdmmc.0/mmc_host/mmc0
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/external_sd auto /devices/virtual/mtd/mtd9/mtdblock9
Do not change the third line:

dev_mount udisk /mnt/usb_storage auto /devices/platform/usb20_host/usb

3. Save the changes and reboot the tablet.


I didn't test it and cannot guarantee that it will work. But if there is anybody who was two tablets, you can give it a try. :)

Best regards,
