As you may all know Samsung disabled the Adoptable storage function. Even the well known S7 hack doesn't work on some Samsung devices.
Well now it's back...

Thanks to some legwork (no pun intended) by @longshanks197 we now have a workable solution.

I have created this patch to fix the issue by patching the boot image and replacing sm.jar in system.
This will enable the adoptable storage feature in Settings>Storage

This should work for pretty much any Samsung device running Marshmallow




I advise making a backup with TWRP before proceeding.

NOTE: Due to Samsung's modifications the combined storage capacity may show as incorrect, ignore this and pay attention to the separate internal and external capacity which is correct.


INSTALL:

Copy the zip below to your device then install with TWRP.

adoptable_storage_enabler_ashyx

For information how to enable adoptable storage see the guide below:

No. You can't flash anything unofficial with stock recovery.

Can someone do me a favour and check if adoptable storage is mountable in TWRP.
I. E. tap the storage button it should list internal and adoptable storage as selectable options.

No reason why it shouldn't unless Samsung have changed something.

Hi there ashyx,
I had some trouble (Noob trouble that is...) installing your 'adoptable storage' mod on my Galaxy A5 2016, but after some bit of thinking and troubleshooting I was able to succeed without much difficulty, I have related my epic adventure on this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/sams...t3458536/page2

As I mentioned there, I'm going to make a donation to you right away to express my sincere thanks for your awesome work!!!

Cheers,
Laurent

Thanks a lot. Its works great for me as well.

I'm using A710FD, Indian firmware, 6.0.1.

Please, I would also like to request you or any of the developers here, to develop a permissive kernel for A710F, Marshmallow
I've Link2sd paid version and it doesn't seem to work on MM.(Mount storage error !!).
