This script allows you to use the memory card as internal storage and portable storage, at the same time!

though i quite unfamiliar with this terms, it sounds that it is a nice feature. will just try this and see for myself. haha thanks!

yeah it ended up closing with errors, so i deleted the partitions on SD card and let the Android OS reformat as portable--then redid the process with success.

One question--since, you now have two "SD cards" when you go to manually move an app to adoptable storage which one is it? See below:

How does this affect TWRP backup and restores?

Not sure I want anything the system is using on my SD card, there's reasons Google are trying to kill off SD card use but I can see where this could be a great thing. My phones have 32Gb internal storage but my wife's is 16Gb which would be a little small for me for instance.

Good work getting a neat solution for this job

Sheeeeeesh. I'm not having any luck with my wife's Galaxy On5. She needs more internal storage so I thought this method would be perfect for her. I installed the latest ADB drivers and turned on USB Debugging. My computer can see internal and SD storage but I keep getting errors when the app tries to format. It identifies the phone alright but it keeps reporting "No SD Card Found". Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello there Dev! I really liked this tool and was wondering if you could provide a similar script for a Linux environment? Much appreciated.
Thanks

You can rename SDCard to Internal, in settings.
