Have you tried changing the option the the file vold.fstab?

Before

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard [email protected] /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_host

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host

After

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 [email protected] /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_host

EDIT : Tried the above now, but does not seem to make a difference, still savea sas before to the internal and ignores the 32G Card.

Have you changed correctly the vold.fstab file? have you rebooted the phone after the change?

Hi

Yes I changed it as described and rebooted the phone, it still sees only the 0.98 Internal Storage & 1.6 "USB Storage"

It will not save to the fitted MicroSD Card (I have tried 4 different cards). They show up as formatted and available in the system, but changing the lines in the file did not allow the card to be used app installation.

See here. It does work. But think you're missing the init.d hack
