    • Make sure you have sufficient internal memory space, or else change the saving location to SD card from settings of those apps.

  6. I did the same way you have mentioned above… But the problems I am facing are-

    My 32gb mmc is converted into phone memory
    No space in SD card

    Also OS shows, android 4.2.2 version jellybean
    Yet

    Help me
    I m unable to use my SD card for storage purpose

  7. I am also facing the same situation as mentioned by Gaurav above.

    I had updated my MMX A114 following the method mentioned above but my SD card is not working as normal. It is showing its space on phone memory and now I no more able to download any files via Whatsup, Youtube as the they are giving error of 0 space available on sdcard. Seems the Storage FIX provided above is not a working solution. Request you to please let me know if I am doing something wrong or if I need to fix some setting.

    • Would suggest all, not to update there Phone until this storage issue is fixed, as without SDcard feature, there are lots of things not working properly.

        • Hey Alpesh, I have storage problem too. But this update.zip solve it a little bit now i can access my both internal and external sd card in file manager. But there is no option to move any of app to sd card its just giving option to move to phone memory and move to inter sd card nothing else no sd card thats why my phone memory is almost full plz consider this.

  8. Hello Alpesh, after using this on my mobile, it is showing SD card storage as phone storage and SD card to 0 all data of SD card is shown as phone storage what to do now?

  9. Hi Alpesh, Yogesh,

    I have followed your instructions and installed Lollipop 5.0 on Micromax A114 Canvas 2.2 (which had previously 4.2.2 OS Jelly Bean) and after installing yours (2 .zip files) it’s showing 4.2.2 where as it should show 5.0 but it does not.

    Previously today itself I have upgraded from Jelly Bean 4.2.2 to Kitkat 4.4.2 and after installed your updates I sent back to 4.2.2 and even facing SD Card issue what Yogesh is facing. I have put update.zip file for further download. Currently SD Card is showing 0 storage space.

    Would you please suggest how to do solve issue and keep separate storage for Internal Memory and SD Card memory?

    Waiting for your reply.
