LG 4 Adoptable Storage Android M 6.0 . No Root





Introduction: LG 4 Adoptable Storage Android M 6.0 . No Root

Here’s how to enable adoptable storage ( SD card as an internal storage ) on your LG device with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s really simple:

Enable USB debugging in your smart phone. To enable it, go to SETTINGS select DEVELOPER OPTIONS and check on USB Debugging

Download this SDK file .


Once downloaded, right-click on adb-setup-1.4.3.exe and choose “Run as Administrator”.

Press Y to “install ADB and Fastboot”, Y all users and Y to install the necessary drivers.

Then Allow to install the Google device driver.


Navigate to SDK Folder (( C:\adb )) and open Command Prompt
(Shift + Right-click anywhere in the folder > Open Command Prompt Here).

Type this command and hit enter.


adb devices


You should now see your device listed .

Type the following commands exactly as shown, pressing the ENTER key after each one:


adb shell sm list-disks

adb shell sm list-volumes all

adb shell sm set-force-adoptable true

adb shell sm partition disk:179,64 private

adb shell sm set-force-adoptable false

adb shell sm list-volumes all


NOTE: the fourth command partitions your SD card, and may take 2-3 minutes (or longer) to complete, depending on the size of your card. plus make sure you have a reliable and fast SD Card.

Disconnect your phone from the USB cable and reboot it. The reboot is crucial. Your phone may (or may not) take a bit longer to boot this time.

Once your phone is fully booted, tap Settings > Developer Options and disable USB Debugging, clicking “OK” to any messages that may appear.

Go to Settings > Storage & USB and tap your SD card. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner and choose “Migrate data”:

bring the phone to the first condition, so what can I do?can you help me :)?

At no point in the instructions did it say to expect my SD card to become corrupted and reformatted. The card was wiped with all data stored on it gone?!

Thank you very much for your instructions, I could not get it to work the first time, I had to reset my phone " LGL56VL " and it worked fine after that again thank you for your help. Harry Dodd

It work transferring apps. But the SD card is gone for transferring regular files like music picture video etc.

I'm using LG Stylo 2 Dual Sim. any fix for this? and anyone know how to root this?

Thanks for the instructions, it works perfect, but sometimes, every 2 ot 3 days my se card starts to work in read only mode. I restart the phone and all work nice for 2 or 3 days.

Have someone the same problem?


Phone lg k8

Hi Can you help with step by step instructions of how i do this on lg k8?

Will it work all LG phones ? I have LG K8 and would like to try this but I wantedto check first hat do you think :)

Finally got it to work on the K8 - installed the 32bit C++ files (already had the 64bit installed) and then went through the process a couple of times, before it finally worked out with a 32GB card.

hi please can you give me the step by step instructions to get this working on my K8. I am a novice. What do I need to download? and what do I need to do? Much appreciated.
