  4.  In vold.fstab , look for these lines
    Code:
    dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 [email protected] /............
    dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard1 auto /................

  5. Change sdcard0 above to sdcard1 and sdcard1 below to sdcard0 (what you're doing is swapping them)
  6. Save vold.fstab then restart the phone

sometimes, you might have flashed a custom ROM that mixes them up. This will help fix it. Also, you can swap to expand your phone storage (make apps write to SD card as phone storage)
