In general, they solved the problem with an empty flash drive on the stock core.
the authors asdfzz and marcin, tell them thanks.here is a post
vold.fstab I have changed well, by replacing the file in the file manager, but after replacing the framework-res.apk phonedid not boot, everything is fine, it was my mistake, because I forgot to set the rights before replacing. I will leave the archive just in case, maybe there are such not attentive ones like me;)

Now everything works, and the settings do not crash when you go into memory.

To ensure that the root does not disappear after updating SuperSu, just go to SuperSu and uncheck the "Rights for SM" checkbox (something like that).

Who there wanted to change the memory on BE_02 here is the instruction:
1) Downloadframework-res.apkandvold.fstab. if that doesn't workAttached filevold.fstab.rar(810 bytes)
for the new CM10 (from 01,07,2013) thisAttached filevold.fstab.zip(537 bytes)

2) Go to / system / fraemwork and replace framework-res.apk with the downloaded one, set the rights as the original. (or you can flash through CWM herethisarchive).
3) Go to / system / etc and replace vold.fstab with the downloaded one, set the rights as the original.
4) Reboot.

If someone needs to transfer files from PC to Sakura or vice versa via USB, you can usethisthe program. In the phone settings, USB debugging must be enabled. We connect the phone to the computer, go to the shortcut on the desktop (should appear after installation). Enter 2 and press enter. Then to transfer to the phone From the computer enter 1. To transfer to the computer From the phone enter 2. Then specify the path and press enter. If you flip ON the phone, the folder will open. There we put what you need to throw. Something like this.
P.S. maybe the program will ask for root. Do not refuse her).

with helpAROMA Filemanagersolve the problem with the substitution of memory.
One caveat, you need to throw this archive on the flash drive with handles through the PC, as I understand it, without memory, it will not work. I had it thrown in advance. The rest of the instructions in the link above.

Download it. Archive is broken. And maybe you need to fix build.prop.

Here are all the bugs that I found:
1. Reboot does not work in Recovery and Download
2. In the off state, there is no charging indicator.
3. MTP does not work
4. The camcorder does not work
5. Microphone in applications other than the phone (This does not affect phone calls)
6. The call answer slider does not always work.
7. With an incoming call, the sound is quiet, even if the volume is set to full. It is treated only by changing the brightness with a volume rocker (the same applies if you turn on the speakerphone)
8. The problem with memory is not completely resolved (the body sees 2 memories instead of 3).
P.S. I think you can put it in the hat.
