    Help needed with storage mod

    Guys

    I have internal modded my Vega to include a USB hub, a 32GB USB thumb drive, a USB to mPcie adapter with a Huawei EM770 card and the internal camera all hooked up and working

    my issue is the thumb drive is being presented as mnt\usb\usb1 (although under storage in settings it shows up as Dock USB2 for some reason). As I dont want to have to open the tablet every time I want to add something to the drive I would like it to be presented like the SD Card is when connected to a PC as USB mass storage

    is there any way to do this relatively easily?

    ok so after editing etc\vold.fstab from

    dev_mount sdard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/sdhci-tegra.3mmc_host/mmc3

    to

    dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/tegra-ehci.2/usb1

    the USB drive is now mounted as the SDCARD and can be mounted on a PC (or in my case mac), I now have only 2 problems. The media scanner keeps crashing and whenever I click on storage under settings that crashes as well and I have lost access to my actual SD card slot

    I tried to create a folder called external_sd on the thumb drive and add

    dev_mount sdard /mnt/sdcard/external_sd auto /devices/platform/sdhci-tegra.3mmc_host/mmc3

    but thats not worked as I thought it would

    any ideas anybody?

    Wouldn't a gscript to mount it whenever you want, work?

    so far I have tried creating a symlink from the sdcard to the internal USB drive but it didn't work, I then tried mounting the internal memory as LUN0 I got access denied as the sdcard is already using LUN0. I think (I may be wrong) the number of LUNs is down to the kernel so I cant just add an additional LUN

    I think the best I can hope for is to get the USB drive mounted as the SDcard and loose access to the actual SDcard slot which is a shame

    What does running the mount command return? have you modified fstab?

    Also, would you mind sharing some pics and data of your mod?

    ( Lame me, you stated that you modified it on the second post )
