            ok
            firstly i installed this script http://funbook.gizmolord.com/script-change-sdcard-to-memory-card/
            after that my extsd (i.e.the internal sd) was showing damaged and asking to format it,,,but i have useful data in it so couldn’t format.
            then after that i installed the above alternative which again swapped the extsd with sdcard.
            but now sdcard (i.e. the internal sd again) is showing damaged

            not sure it will work but try at ur own risk,

          • rahul

    the sdcard and extsd were swapped successfully but extsd(which is the internal sd after swapping) was shown damaged…

  • rahul

    ok..so here we go
    firstly i flashed SWAP_SCRIPT_FOR_EXTSD_AND_SDCARD.zip and the extsd was showing damaged.
    then i flashed RESTORE_SCRIPT_FOR_SDCARD_AND_EXTSD.zip but still it shows sdcard is damaged and asks to format it…but i really need to recover my data on internal sd..

  • Jithin

    any way you are giving away the instructions,so what is the trouble in explaining it in a few more words or steps,so that a begginer or may be anyone can understand or do it succesfully.really diisapointing sir.dont be a miser with words,if u can explain in detail,it would be off great help to many.

    • http://gizmolord.com/ Die2mrw007

      It is explained in well manner in my opinion. If you are amazed by the word “reboot into recovery”, you are probably not aware of CWM.
      Get that first installed before trying this from here:

        • Amit Sharma

          Hi Gorang.. i have swapped the sd card.. Now my external sd card is showing in place of internal sd card.. i want to delete all files on the internal memory card of funbook (the one which is internal with a default memory of around 2 GB).. How do i erase all of the 2 GB.. Can i use the erase SD card from settings? I hope it will not delete the contents of the ex. SD card which we have swapped??
          Hope you understand my question..
          Eagerly awaiting your response.

          Best,
          Amit Sharma
