How To Enable Adopted Storage On Emui 4.0 & EMUI 4.1

Someday ago Huawei released emui 4.0 marshmallow for many devices. Today we share how to enable adopted storage on emui 4.0 & higher version? Adopted storage was a new feature on emui 4.0 and treat the resulting cumulative memory as one total partition that was added to marshmallow in light of the complaints regarding lollipop issue with sd cards. In lollipop, not all applications can be moved to sd card & once the application is installed, any updates will be transferred back to the internal storage.

To set adopted storage up, you will need a computer with working ‘abd’ and, of course, a MicroSD card in your phone, the faster the better. Here’s the process!

    my Honor 4 shows me the memory as (3,67 (internal) + 58,53 (sd-card) being 62,19 GB in total. So far, so good. Free internal and SD card: twice 0,00 B free. As the EMUI 4.0 don’t support the adoptable: normal too, I suppose. When I try to find what’s using the memory, I don’t find anything. BUT: when I try to install an application with the play store, there is not enough space for installing messenger for example… What did I wrong?

    I managed to mix internal and external but do not seem to be able to migrate data. Optimization percentage has gone down 10%, SD card accessible from HiSuite only, we will see what happens when I install an app. Thank you anyway.
