The best way is to mount your partition on the home because a lot of sw
for the moko aren't coded well and uses always the /home/root as homedir
also if you have changed it.
Moreover mounting the partition gives you tha ability that if your sd
card is gone you can always use your phone with the home in the flash
empty dir used as mountpoint.

If you want more flexibility mount it with "LABEL" instead the device
name so that if the device name change your home isn't affcted.
