@Flibblesan, any ideas on what is blocking sd card, or is it as rickywyatt suggested, it is blocked at kernel level ?


Hard to know without a device with me but I suspect the kernel init files need editing to include mountpoints for the SD card. Might even be there just commented out.

So just to confirm. The root process detailed above leaves a flashing screen on some but not all. And is safe!

Yep works 100% perfectly on my phone. Really happy with it, much snappier than gingerbread!

Thanks - will root then. Just one thing. I'm familiar with connecting the phone via USB debugging etc, but this line ' Parameters->about->advanced parameters-> tick the first line'. Where is this. Soz if I've missed something :unsure:

No...sdcard = internal SD

sdcard1 = external sd

Does anyone know what the panic partition is?

No problems guys. Bit the bullet and went ahead - rooted a treat! :) Thanks guys for all your efforts on this, and looking forward to a hopeful use of the SD card slot.

Good find! Presumably removing that line may open doors? (or else brick it)

How will the device see the SD card, as at the moment it shows the onboard storage as being SD

Definitely wouldn&#39;t brick it.<br /><br />Sdcard2 is how it would be seen. <br />
