How to Convert External SD Card Memory into Internal Memory in the Motorola Droid RAZR
If you ever felt the need for more internal space and you happen to own a Motorola Droid RAZR then you are in luck as this how to is dedicated to increasing the internal memory of your beloved device. You need only a follow a few easy steps in order to increase the internal memory of your Motorola Droid RAZR but be warned that the procedure requires a rooted device in order to function properly. The latest update for the Droid RAZR brings a lot of improvements, like better battery life and bug fixes, but the problem of internal storage space still remains.
Before we move on you should know a couple of very important aspects regarding rooting any Android device. Updating your Samsung Epic 4G with non official firmware or rooting it will most likely void your warranty, so if you are uncomfortable with this, you should probably stop here. If somehow, something goes wrong, you are on your own. Neither we nor the developer of this software can be held responsible for any damage that might come to your device by following this guide. By all means, you should not be discouraged by the above statement, as everything in this article should work thanks to the testing process that came prior to the release of this custom ROM. Thanks to the guys over at androidadvices for finding this procedure.
As we are starting with an already rooted device the steps needed to backup your information have been reduced to the simple task of making a nandroid backup from the recovery, so before we move any further be sure to make one. From here on we will be presenting the steps you have to take in order to properly install the patch that allows your Motorola Droid RAZR to see the external memory card as internal memory space.
- The first step requires you to download this Zip package to your computer and then copying it to the root of your Motorola Droid RAZR‘s memory card. Be sure not to place the file in any subfolders. Just to be sure also use the original USB cable to do the transfer.
- The second step is an easy one and all you have to do is enable the USB debugging in your Motorola Droid RAZR. This can be done from the following path: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging. The USB Debugging option should be ticked.
- The third step is the one that will flash the file on your device. You now need to boot the Motorola Droid RAZR in the ClockWorkMod recovery and then selecting “install zip from sd card” > “choose zip from sd card”. You will have to choose the zip file you have placed on the root of your external SD card earlier.
- The fourth step is the easiest so far because all you have to do is wait 5 to 10 minutes for the file to be flashed and then restart your device by selecting the reboot option from the ClockWorkMod recovery.
If the update process fails at any point do not panic as all you have to do is to follow this guide again and redo all the steps above.
When the whole process is finished you should be watching your home screen and to verify that the external memory has been converted to internal storage space you should check the following path “Settings > SD & phone storage” and see what numbers the Phone memory part reads.
