[Please help] Default storage is SD Card/External Storage

#1

Like what the title stated, The internal storage is detected as SD card (external storage) and my SD Card is detected as internal storage. How can i change it because it's annoying as I wanted to keep my SD card as clean as possible but then it keep installing apps and create apps' folder in the SD Card. I changed the Default Write Disk (Settings->Storage) to phone storage in settings but still not working. Is there anywhere that I can solve this? My phone is Lenovo A606 (MT6582), rooted with TWRP.

There's a way to swap phone with sd card storage but i need to verify what's wrong before recommending such a technique.
Let me see a pic of a file manager showing phone and sd card storage.
BTW, did you have this issue with the other firmware?

I didnt notice with the other firmware because there's problem with the camera so i didnt really go much with it. As i know the factory one has this problem since I got it. Here's the picture. I dont know is it like this. sdcard0 is my SD card (should be external) and sdcard1 is internal (should be internal). I know that sdcard0 should be phone storage and not SD card unless we want it to because my another phone show sdcard1 as SD card and sdcard0 is the internal (where the system apps and download apps save at) PS: the screenshot is aved at external as it should save in the internal.

Sdcard0 is External SD and sdcard1 is phone storage...at least on the phones I've been handling.
