  • hello friends the publisher unfortunately forgot to say one major thing : to be able to write adb command you need not only the LG drivers you need to download the "android sdk platform"and only after that you will be able to do the command in the cmd window as shown in this guide. good luck !! here is the link for that

  • I found a tool that does this without as much hassle. — Seems to work fine so far, is showing 25.60 GB used of 288 GB 32.0 GB internal and SD Card 256 GB. I used the "custom" option and chose 0 for percent (seems backwards, I thought 90 would be 90% internal.) Hope it helps someone.

  • I have a Stylo 4 with the same LG SD card issue. Tried to follow. But,after trail and error using Android Studio to down load the SDK materials, l IT WORKED. In addition to the 32gb on board, I have and a 256GB MicroSD (Sandisk Extreme, I think, fast card) Could not dedicate whole SD card for app storage, finally worked on SM PARTITION DISK:xxx,xx to get 50% dedicated. Still have three separate partitions, two card. But, 128gb can have apps installed. Android 9.0 opened developer options in phone settings to force SD card install on apps that force internal only
    Now have 150GB for apps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the tip!!!

  • LG are really idiots with problem in their minds. I use to love this brand, now I hate all of them, cause of this and other problems. They have nougats in their minds.

  • Ok, something really weird happen… I used a 128gb micro SD, after doing everything as suggested now my phone shows that I have 288gb total and in the SD card are 130gb used by System… Any way to fix that?

  • Anyone else notice that throughout the entire video hes says to type "ms" but actually types "sm". Could be a problem for some if you just typed what you heard.

  • it says to me
    Error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: java.util.concurrent.TimeoutException: Thread Binder_3 gave up waiting for partitionMixed after 180000ms . any fixes

  • This seems cool, but you need to dummy proof your video. What I mean is I need step-by-step instructions. What do I do 1st, when do I connect my phone, is the software downloaded on my CPU or on phone, and what should be happening every step of the way?

  • Thank you. I'm going to try this when I get home. It annoys the shit out of me that my LG won't format my card to be used as internal/adaptive memory, like I can with my K1 shield.

  • I tried this and using all the commenters information, but it now says my sd card is double its actual size and now it has half used as "used internal space" not free space

  • You completely ignored the fact you need the android debugging sdk installed and configured before any of this has a chance to work.

  • This worked great tks!! The only issue I ran into was getting adb working on windows 10 with all the updates, microsoft seems to be pushing their powershell, I was a able to work around it and go into the path and pull into it. Tks again.

  • *Big step – you need Android sdk tools software. Set cmd to the platform-tools path and set the phone to file transfer mode when prompt

  • i tried this 3 times and each time, the internal portion of my card shows as corrupted, prompting me to set it up, hich formats it back to portable

  • Got it to work. I may have entered it wrong the first time but private did not work for me. Mixed did however. When you type in mixed make sure to type in the percentage you want left on the sd card not the percentage you want on the phone. The remaining percentage will be the amount that is dedicated to internal storage.

    "You will need the platform-tools first. You can download it from After you unzip the downloaded file, open command prompt within the platform-tools folder. You can open command prompt within the folder by typing cmd in the address bar of the File Explorer, and then you use use the adb shell command"

  • For those of you who face the problem "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command" follow these steps:

    1) Download
    2) Extract the contents of this ZIP file into an easily accessible folder (such as C:adb).
    3) Explore that folder and copy these (adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, AdbWinUsbApi.dll and fastboot.exe) files into (C:Windows).
    4) Connect your smartphone or tablet to your computer with a USB cable. Change the USB mode to “file transfer (MTP)” mode.
    5) You may need to install LG drivers (if the device is not detected). link given in the description above.
    6) In the Command Prompt window, enter the following command [adb devices] without brackets to launch the ADB daemon.
    7) On your phone’s screen, you should see a prompt to allow or deny USB Debugging access and click OK. of-course USB Debugging should be enabled already, if not look at 1:31 for how to enable.
    8) Finally, re-enter the command from step #6. If everything was successful, you should now see your device’s serial number in the command prompt.
    9) And you will be good to go. problem solved.

  • Okay, So there was quite a lot that I had to do to get this to work….Follow below

    1. Follow the steps in the video, if you see that the adb isn't being recognized, then that means that you have to install it. What you need to do is go here follow the video and use the links in the description.

    2. When it's time to install the sdk, if it's not opening up, then you have to install java which is in the link of the description in the video I put in step 1. After installing java, the sdk manager should now work.

    3.After installing the files, the guy in the video is going to say to type in the file name to point to the folders when searching it in the cmd…DO NOT DO THAT….It may work for you, but it didn't work for me. I was about to give up, when I read a comment saying to just go to the browse button on the side and manually add the two folders. Doing it this way is a bit more secure because You don't have to worry about spelling and what not. Once done, check the cmd prompt and you should get a long list of stuff like in the video. Now the adb should be there and we can now continue with this video…

    4. Make sure you install the drivers that you downloaded before. If you don't install them, a message in the cmd prompt will say 'device '(null)' not found'..

    5. Make sure you are LOOKING at what's being typed and not just LISTENING. If you notice, he says type in 'ms' but instead he typed in 'sm'. BE CAREFUL!

    6. Beware that if you restart your phone it might get stuck on a loading screen, as mine did. I had to hold down the power button and the volume down button simultaneously to get it to move

    7. Once finished loading up, you will be left with an 'SD cared Corrupted' message in your storage menu……

  • What if your computer says "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file?" I see that when you do the command prompt you are running windows 10.0 and in my command prompt it says version 6.3.9600 will that make a difference as to why the adb command isn't working? What solution could i try to help my computer recognize the adb command so i can partition this sd card and actually use the adotpive storage feature on the LG G6?

  • So in order to run the "adb shell" command, you would need to us this SDK file.

    open command line and type in the following one line at a time and press enter after each line.
    adb shell
    sm list-disk
    sm partition disk:179,0 private

    This should format the whole SD to adaptive SD card.

  • Can I use the same steps for LG G5 and if in the future I upgrade to some other device other then LG wat do I need to do?

  • Thank you! I now have my LG 6 with 149 GB Internal! Use
