Anyone tried the sd card yet ? I dont have one to try, didnt think I be needing one for a while lol

There is a folder called sd card_ext that I dont recall seeing on gingerbread.


I've got an external_sd folder on the Orange GB install.

The Ext-SD is there on GB too. Its the partition that the phone's internal storage memory is classified as, and even if the SD slot did work you wouldn't be seeing anything there at all. You can't read from an external SD card if there isn't one in there.

It's a shame! :( Did you try to reboot?

I'm guessing Orange might allow an SD card to make up for the storage the huge amount of bloat is going to take up :P

What size SD card did you use? As illegitimate as it seems I seen a few comments on Paul's fitting a micro sd video on youtube saying sd cards up to 8 maybe 16Gb will work. May be untrue and not work but one can hope.

Yes but in is video paul uses a 2gb micro sd card so... Either there are fews cards compatible to this witch would be very weird (or impossible) either no one ever got a micro sdcard working on this and it was a lie.

I was using a 16Gb Class10, if paul tried a 2gb that basically covers the hole range really seing as 32gb can not work so well in some devices.

I assumed it was a lie. Just thought I may as well ask on the off-chance.

no wonder they disabled the sd slot, everyone would be returning their osd's to orange for a replacement back cover after they f**ked it up trying to get the cover off.

So some intel guy says the hidden sd card slot can be used, then surely it can, or was he misinformed maybe?

I had to speak to CS in India(?) to replace my overheating OSD, he advised me to retain the battery cover. Mind you he also asked me what colour I wanted it in. Not surprisingly I ignored his "advice".

Meh enabling support for the microSD will be a right pain in the backside to do. The ICS ROMs have been built for the new unified storage as seen in devices like the Galaxy Nexus, unlike the older 'Mass Storage' mode which supports microSD. It could be done but the benefits will be extremely limited as the majority of apps don't support more than one SD device (and even though the phone is using unified storage it still shows up as SD for legacy applications).

And personally I wouldn't want to me constantly removing a flimsy back cover to access the microSD slot all the time.
