Description:
 

All MT6577 android phones are 'STILL' plagued by low internal memory issue...

Credits to X-Dron from russia, now you'll have 2GB of internal storage instead of 512MB with this mod !

I've included a google direct translated version for the help file, some sentence doesn't make sense but i'm sure you'll figure it out on how to use it...

X-Dron claim his mod is universal & it can be use on all MT6577...

You can follow the original thread here...

What the f... , you have use up your 2GB Internal Memory & you can't install any more apps...

Credits to EMF, he found this hack & it is working well on my MT6577...

Originally, this hack by 神族-bpok which install .smssecurity to app folder which is meant for V970 so attach copy here, i've deleted it so that it can be use on any MT6577 via cwmr...

Having said that, it is best that you copy your original vold.fstab before installing this hack so that, if anything were to go wrong, you can still revert it back to original state... Just open revert2ori.zip with 7zip but don't extract it, drag & drop your original vold.fstab into it & flash via cwmr...

What this hack did is that it swap the mount points at vold.fstab...

Original
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_hostdev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host
Hack
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_hostdev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host
It is also possible to manual edit vold.fstab as confirmed working by other thread...if it doesn't then power off, take out the battery, wait few sec then put it back & reboot...

If it still doesn't work, you can try manual edit & add 2 to vold.fstab.nand

Original
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host
Hack
Code:
dev_mount sdcard2 /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host
Some report that this works well with 32GB SdCard too ! But make sure to use minimum Class 4 & above...

Bravo to the original developer/ hacker...

Added on Oct 17, 2012 WARNING : MEDIATEK SMART PHONE FLASH TOOL
i've seen far too many times that fellow xda member make this same mistake over & over again, including myself...

So pls pls people, don't use SP Flash Tool & download ROM not meant for your phone, it will brick it & there is no way to revive it back ! After you have download wrong PRELOADER, your phone will be completely dead, cannot power on, no charging, no recovery, no USB vcom detection & you can say
to it...

Here is the WARNING again :

NEVER DOWNLOAD ROM NOT MEANT FOR YOUR PHONE. IT WILL BRICK IT !
-------------------------------------------------
Added on Dec 02, 2012 - INT2EXT on MT6575 / 77 for the extreme gamers !
Finally found a way to install 200 over games on my MT6577 & i'm sure it will work on MT6575 too...

So here is the updated tut to do that... Works on ext 2, 3 or 4...

As usual the credits, without these Master Shifu's sharing, this mod would not be here...
