hi you guys are doing some fantastic work here making ICS a great asset for the Excel
can someone confirm what the sd card fix actually does and how it affects other apps like titanium etc
does it pretend that the removable card is the internal sd so that every app you download from Play goes onto that giving you up to 32gb for apps and when you "move to sd" using apps to sd or settings it will move it from your "removable card" to your internal card now renamed extsd :shock: :?

I haven't tried the card mod yet. But as far as I can make out it swaps the cards around. So the external becomes the internal afaik. So apps should see that card for default storage. I think. :-)

ok thanks just wondered if it had any ramifications after doing it apart from the obvious of removing the card

Yeah, its there if someone wants to try it, its easily reversable any way, just need to edit "vold.fstab" back to stock.

Code: Select all
# Mounts the first usable partition of the specified device
#/devices/platform/awsmc.3/mmc_host for sdio
dev_mount   sdcard   /mnt/extsd   auto   /devices/virtual/block/nandi
dev_mount   extsd   /mnt/sdcard   auto   /devices/platform/sunxi-mmc.1/mmc_host   /devices/platform/sunxi-mmc.0/mmc_host
dev_mount   usbhost1   /mnt/usbhost1   auto   /devices/platform/sw-ehci.1   /devices/platform/sw_hcd_host0   /devices/platform/sw-ehci.2   /devices/platform/sw-ohci.1   /devices/platform/sw-ohci.2

Hi Suggsy.
I seem to be having a problem with your Update1.
Whenever I flash this zip, I get the following every now and again. Especially when trying to sync the calendar manually, which has also stopped working.
This is the error that flashes up on the screen for a split second. (I think it's this)
The process com.google.process.gapps has stopped unexpectedly
I may just backup the build.prop and files in /system/etc/permissions, and go back to the original f/w and try again.

Tested and confirmed you are right, im not sure what the problem is at the moment, will have to look into it more.

Thanks for the update.

No problem matey.
I'm just glad I wasn't imagining it.
I made a backup of your extra permission files, and re-flashed, and copied the backed up xml's back.
So far so good.

as ICS is fairley generic compared to older versions would the latest GAPPS from CyanogenMod Github work
