    So i found out about this adoptable storage now available with the marshmallow update however i cannot seem to get it to work. I attempted to format my sd card and the option to firmat for primary storage was not applicable. I formatted anyways thinking i'd see the option to do so on the next page. My phone automatically made it a portable storage device with no option to change it. I restarted my phone and tried again to no avail. I checked to make sure everything had indeed updated correctly and it had. I could really use this feature and not having it is frustrating so any thoughts are welcome. Thanks so much.

    The LG Stylo 2 doesn't have the adaptive storage feature. The adaptive storage feature wasn't available on the original G Stylo after Marshmallow update. LG removed the feature.

    I cannot believe LG had the brilliant idea of eliminating the ability of moving apps to the SD card. Why have it at all if you cannot use it. I thought all Android version 6.0.1 were the same. Maybe I'm just ignorant about Android. I even tried downloading an app that allows me the ability to transfer but that doesn't work either. If Android doesn't allow it they won't either. I'm ready to return it and go with what was my first choice, the Galaxy J7. I guess I learned a lesson. If anyone has an answer I'd love to know what it is.

    does not need root, try

    run adb shell
    type: sm list-disks
    returns : disk:179,128
    type: sm list-volumes all
    returns: private mounted null
    public:179,129 mounted FD00-0AF0
    emulated mounted null
    type: sm set-force-adoptable true
    type: sm partition disk:179,128 private
    type: sm set-force-adoptable false
    type: sm list-volumes all
    returns: emulated:179,130 unmounted null
    private:179,130 mounted 33dacc29-eb64-4f61-bad1-4f574dc22102
    private mounted null
    emulated mounted null


    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    sm list-disks <-- get the id of your sd card that will be used in the sm partition command, after that on your phone
    then go to storage-sdcard, options select migrate data, it will reformat the sd as internal

    Has anyone tried enabling adoptable storage for the Stylo 2 plus?
