How to Increase the Internal Memory Storage of an Android Tablet

What do we mean by increasing the internal memory?

The external memory will be converted (shown as) into internal memory and internal memory will be converted into external memory

Sponsored

Things to consider:

  1. This process includes manipulating the system files which might render the warranty of your tablet void.
  2. Tablet must be rooted. See Tablet Rooting Guide
  3. This process might not work for all tablets
  4. By increasing the internal memory, you can install bigger apps and games which require more memory
  5. Preferably do this when you have installed 8 GB or more external memory

This process has been successfully tested on the Micromax Funbook P255 with internal memory of 4 GB, Usable internal memory of 1.5 GB and External memory (SD card) of 8 GB.

App required: SuperSU and Root Explorer (apk can be downloaded easily from the internet)

Step 1: Install the SuperSU app

  • Go to settings
  • Enable the Super User by selecting a checkbox (in some cases it might be already enabled)
  • Close the app
  • This process is called as rooting. The very same process might not root all tablet. Process differ from tab to tab.

Step 2: Open the Root Explorer app (it enables us to explore the android system files)

  •   Go to the “system” directory or folder
  •   Then go to the “etc” directory
  •   Scroll down to find the file “void.fstb
  •  Open the “void.fstb” file using a text editor

Step3:  Look for the lines

  • “dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard” and change it to “dev_mount sdcard /mnt/ extsd”
  • “dev_mount extsd /mnt/extsd” and change it to “dev_mount extsd /mnt/ sdcard”

Make sure that you only make changes to the word “sdcard” and “extsd” and nothing else. This will show the internal memory as external memory and the external (SD card) as internal memory.

Once done, save this file and go back to Root Explorer.

Step3:  A backup file named “void.fstb.bak” will be automatically created. Delete this file by pressing hold the file and select delete. Close the Root Explorer app.

Step 4: Switch off the tablet and switch it back on. Go to Settings then storage and check internal storage. The internal memory has changed to 8 GB (storage capacity of the SD card) and the external memory has changed to 1.5 GB i.e. the internal usable memory.

Note : If the above method does not work and your tablet is not starting or hangs at logo. Then follow the below links to fix it.

See the video demo.

  22. Anil Chandran says:

    hi sir, I did this on my hcl me u2 tablet
    the code was
    dev mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard/external sdcard auto /devices….
    dev mount flash /mnt/sdcard auto /devices…
    I changed it into
    dev mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices….
    dev mount flash /mnt/sdcard/external sdcard auto /devices…
    Now it changed the internal sdcard with external sdcard. But the problem is this tablet uses a different memory of 400 mb other than internal sdcard of 2.7gb. So I cannot install any large apps and still limited in number of apps because a part of app will be stored in the 400 mb partition
    Also I lost the access to 2.7 gb internal sdcard.
    So I wanted to revert it into original state and so I changed everything back into old code. Now it shows no signs of neither internal and external sdcad in file explorer and settings. I resetted it but no change happened. What could I do know? Now I cannot download anything in its apps since everything needs an internal sd. I am very much distressed . Please please please help me. Thanks in advance

  29. There is no such file on my phone with android 5.0
    Is there still an option to achieve the described result?

  30. I tried this on my tablet and it didn’t work can someone help please .

  31. there is no vold.fstab file on my tablet

  32. Kitroy Campbell says:

    Help! Help! Help! I accidentally delete two of the “Vold.fstab” files and now my tablet isnt booting up because its stuck on the “Android icon.” My sister want to kill me because of this issue. spleeeeeeeeeeeease help me.

  33. I did the steps to get to the etc directory but I can’t locate vold.fstab file anywhere

  34. Kitroy Campbell says:

    @Tablet Guru, i have a bigger problem because i accidentally delete: telephony provider, the dialer and contact software and now i am unable to install the back on my phablet.

  35. Kitroy Campbell says:

    Here is a screen shot of the Vold.fstab so you can better help me to change “sd card to internal memory.” i really need this fix because my phablet is low on internal memory. Thanks

    • Change sdcard0 to sdcard1 & sdcard1 to sdcard0.
      Edit in those lines which has “goldfish_mmc” text.

      • Kitroy Campbell says:

        I tried but it only change to grey and then change back to its normal color.

      • Kitroy Campbell says:

        as you can see from my screen shot, the two with “dev_mount” is simpler, and both “sdcard” end with “0” The only thing that is different about the two lines:
        example, line 1 = goldfish_mmc.0 and line 2 = goldfish_mmc.1

        example, line 1 = mtk-msdc.1 and line 2 = mtk-msdc.2

  36. Kitroy Campbell says:

    Here is my update on rooting my device. My phablet is running smooth because i unroot and reroot with a different apps. I change my contacts, dialer, and also system launcher. I am using Kinguser to stabilize my phablet and Es File Explore file manager to move my files to SD or otherwise.

  37. Kitroy Campbell says:

    I root my phablet and its giving me a lot of trouble so i wouldnt advice anyone to root there phone or tablet either

    I rooted my tab as explained, now my tab is not showing any phone memory which is 2 GB or external sd which is 16B. It is showing only internal memory as 512 MB. Please advise

  48. Khalif Foster says:

    I can use internal memory – storage if I switched to external memory – storage?? Because currently can’t use external memory unless root, that mean if switched, I can’t use internal memory anymore? Because all info is in internal memory or it will add with internal memory to external memory? (Same as below, but not sure if ya see this first or another one first at below. It is mixed with other older date)

  56. i cant find vold.fstab.bak how can i find?

  57. Hey man i didnt find the text “void.fstb” in my phone instead i found “vold.fstab” how about this problem, can you help me solve this?

  58. I have a [ Bassoon } which is basically a samsung P101 with 4.2.2 Android OS , Kernel Version: 3.4.5 and Build: ALPS.JB3.MPV1.12 and I downloaded the SuperSU as well as the Root Explorer. At first I still did not have root permission until i had to install on my PC, Kingo root and set the debugging feature on my tablet then connect the data cord and wait for all to set up and all was successful. I then retried all the steps listed in the article and the only line in my open text editor which I saw and changed the sdcard to extsd wa: dev_mount sdcard/mnt/sdcard which I changed to dev_mount sdcard /mnt/ extsd…….There was no other ” dev_mount extsd / mnt/extsd and change it to dev_mount extsd/ mnt/ sdcard….without that line it still created the void.fstb.bak which in my root explorer, the system file says…void. fstab.bak which I held then deleted as instructed. Why do you list fstb and I have fstab and i have a recongnisable 32gb card in the slot that has data on it and it shows on my tablet or should I have to have a blank eternal card to use. I need this desperately as I only have 512 mb on the internal and it is totally loaded with the pre-installed apps that came with this tablet… all help appreciated

    • Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I believe your referring to your ram memory. Ram memory is a separate chip much more advanced then flash/SD memory and I’m not sure if it’s possible or worth the cost of a ram upgrade which would most likely only be done by a CPU shop if you want I’ll instruct you on creating a swap partition, which basically is memory that is used when your out of ram and the kernel swaps to using that memory . you can email me at ttrax321@yahoo.com I could also give you a few tips on editing your kernel with sysctl to improve speed/ lagging. Feel free to email I’m a Jr developer and love helping people out

      • I did as you requested and Is sent you a email. Very interested if you have a sure method as you explained above to swap internal and external memory as I had the Root Explorer and Super Su with no positive results. I will resend the email. maybe the first one went to your spam folder. Thank you.

      • John Haskins…L.L.Designer

        I am open to all your suggestions as I am at heads end to resolve this problem and I do not want to give up on this Tablet as it is a great and smooth operating Tablets besides it’s limited internal storage MB’s ( 512 )

        Subject: Re: New comment posted on How to increase the internal memory storage of an android tablet?

    • chuckster2112 says:

      I used an app called towelroot and it was very easy without using a PC.

    • Kitroy Campbell says:

      I am having the same with that tablet. mine is bassoon p1000 with 489 mb and 16.70 phone memory

      • Kitroy, If I knew this tablet would be impossible to upgrade it’s memory I would have never bought it but I have it now and I love certain features that you can’t get in other generic models from China. You can try all the gimmicks and requested rooting and swap apps and NONE will work on this model as the ram chip is a FIXED Hardware on the board and I even corresponded with board manufacturers in China and Hong Kong and if you can get a board with higher ram you would need to migrate all info from your present one to the board which means, basically you would have to buy a tablet with that board installed OR find the hardware chip and a great board upgrade solderer and replace yours. This Tablet has great sound and a smooth touch and the phone app is superb as I have GoSmart as the mobile supplier at $35 a month and I wish I had a magic pill or wand to make you and me happy, but it Ain’t happening..

  59. Hi. I have a NeuTab N9 with Android 4.4.2. It is a bit different so I cannot find file named “void.fstb” in “etc” folder. How should I do it?

  68. After rooting any problem will occur in the tab

  69. Is it will work on china tablets(fun tab)

  70. Will this process delete my data such as music photos etc etc

  71. Hi bro my tab is I ball slide 3g I deleted all my files in internal storage so whenever I go to play store to download apps while downloading it shows insufficient space even when there is lot of space

  72. Learning how to close the applications not needed that use memory and keeping the junk off your tablet is better than these scary programs to change root crap and the editing. If you have 1 gig operating system memory that is taken away from the lets say 8 gig memory in tablet, it is the same giving the system 16 or 32 gig. the adroid operating system being used dictates how much running memory is being used. So if you have applications that need alot of running memory you are better off learning how to kill unneeded running applications. You try to change how the rooting process occurs can be lethal as some have found out here. Words of safe wisdom from a 40 year plus electronics and certified computer school graduate.

  80. hi bro, i have a question, what if you remove the external memory after that tutorial, is the internal memory will change or it will be the same.

  81. Will it work in my tablet Micromax p650 ?

  82. Hi can also these work on my samsung galaxy pocket?

  83. Cesar Augusto Mejia Rodriguez says:

    thank you for the guide, already did that on my Vastking V97 and it went perfectly. Now my question is: how do I expand the system memory? It only displays 2GB and I have now, due to your fix a 32GB internal storage and a 12GB external storage… but still I want to expand or even better merge the system with either internal or external one’s! Thank you!!

  84. What will happen to my tablet if i mistake?

  85. Showing that no su binary installed plz help

  86. My tablet show this it’s internal memory is partitioned…. How can I do it?

    dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.0/mmc_host
    dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.1/mmc_host
    ## Example of a dual card setup
    # dev_mount left_sdcard /mnt/sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.0/mmc_host/mmc0
    # dev_mount right_sdcard /mnt/sdcard2 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-sd.2/mmc_host/mmc2

  87. An issue has appeared I touched something on rooting and since then my tablets boots only when it is connected with PC through USB, if i disconnect usb cable off tablet immediately boot icon it appears at tablet. HELP PLS?!!!

  88. Hey i did what you did. However when i download items from the playstore it doesnt download to tbe memory card. As the figure remains the same

  89. Hey I have a blu studio 5.0 internal usable memory 513mb will this work for me I have a 8gb SD card also but it isn’t putting things on it

  90. I have a flytouch xr 10.1 8g what should I install to do this process I have the Root Explorer , but when I try installing the SuperSU it tells me to wait that it is still installing ( which I un-installed because I waited almost a whole day and it stayed the same)??? I have an SD card of 32g and want to swap that for the internal memory as my tablet doesn’t have enough for what my kids use it for. it keeps saying not enough memory. Would it work for this tablet?

    • The process will work. But it seems that rooting procedure is different for your tab, SuperSU will not work . Try another rooting app.

      • Thank you for the response, I have installed a root checker which says it was fine and that my tablet has been rooted, but when I did your process it says it has saved but I can’t find it.
        So I can’t delete the vold.fstab.bak..What am I doing wrong? which root app do you recommend for my tablet?

        • Generally this happen when you tablet is not root properly. I would suggest to try another rooting process. There might be the possibilities that few functionality of your tab is still to be unlocked and root checker didn’t checked it.

          • Still not working, please help as this tablet has run out of memory??????

          • Which root checker should I try? since I have already tried four different ones and none have worked. There has to be a way to manipulate it to work. Any suggestions or even visuals will help maybe I am doing something wrong.

    • Different tab will have different rooting process. SuperSu will not work with your tablet. Try another process.

  91. Thank you for the quick response. Now my problem is I cannot find the void.fstb.bak after making the changes. It does not come up automatically like it does in your video. Any thoughts?
    Thanks again.

  92. Hi. My Blu Studio shows:

    dev_mount sdcard/storage/sdcard0 emmc@fat/devices/platform/goldfish_mmc0/devices/platform//mtk-sd0/mmc_host.

    The next line shows:

    dev_mount sdcard2/storage/sdcard1 auto/devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1/devices/platform/mtk-sd.1/mmc_host.

    Any guidance? (Thanks in advance.)

  93. is this even save to be use? can i revert back to the original after i have done the conversion?

  94. Adding an SD card does not increase the memory of the tablet, it increases the storage, I.E. Hard drive. Get your facts straight please. When I say memory I am referring to RAM, which is the internal memory of the tablet.

  95. I’m using the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the options are different. I only have one line indicating:

    dev_mount sdcard /storage/extSdCard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host/mmc1

    Do I just swap “sdcard” and “extSdCard”?

  100. hi bro will it work on samsung galaxy grand neo

  101. Will it work on ideatab a1000 if it does not work then I will lose my edutab files my hands are itching i want to play real racing 3 badly.

  102. For me the files were called vold.fstab and wfd_backlist.conf, but it had the same info stuff as the ones you had… however I can’t delete the wfd_backlist.conf file; I get an error message saying that the deletion failed… any suggestions? :/

    • Actually wait please ignore that first message ^^’

      I found that the vold.fstab file was equivalent to the void.fstb file you had.

      My problem was it was not saving changes to the vold.fstab file (although it said that it did), and it said it made a backup file called vold.fstab.bak . I searched for that file and couldn’t find it, and when I looked back the changes I had made to the vold.fstab file were gone….

      Maybe I didn’t root the thing correct? My tablet confuses me sometimes :/

  103. Please post how to root Micromax P280 as well. Thanks in advance 🙂
