Hi So i recently got a LG G2 but unfortunately the 16gb version, and what was worst is that you are only allowed to used 10gb
So as i love gaming, listening to my favorite music and watching awesome videos, I needed a way to get more space to hold everything..

Eventually I came across an App called FolderMount, unfortunately you need your device to be rooted for this app.
You will also need a OTG microUSB adapter.. Not sure if this will work on all devices

Here is a step by step guide on playing games off a USB drive:

1. Install FolderMount, get it from play store

2. Install your game( I'm installing Fifa 14)

4. Copy the game sd data onto a USB drive and plug the USB drive into your Android device using an OTG microUSB adapter

5. Now open FolderMount and in the top right corner tap the "+" icon

6. You may enter the game name to make mounting a game easier.

7. By Source, select the empty folder created in Step 3

9. Check Screenshot_4 to see how it should look.

For small apps it should be pointless but for apps that hold more data, it should work.

to select a folder you need to enter the folder itself. e.g enter /obb/com.xxxx(game data folder) then tap the tick in top right corner
