System is always taking ~3.98GB(even though it doesn't use that much), so that is probably the part you are missing.(and android 6.0 emui rom might think it's unnecessary to show it because you can't use it)

If you want to be sure it's not a bug, (I think) you can install terminal emulator and run command 'df -h' to check partitions stuff

Hi :)

Sorry for resurrecting the thread. I hope someone will read this.

I have the Honor 4X running build che2-L11c432b560 (That's Marshmallow, Android 6.0). Links to newer firmwares (b570, b580) on the website of Huawei seem to be dead now :(

I believe my bootloader is unlocked but my phone is not rooted.

As many, I face the issue with limited storage (3GB available after total wipe, not even enough to run OS updates). I'd like to use my SD card as internal storage aka Adoptable Storage or Flex Storage. AFAIU I need to root my phone to do that, right? Or not?

(I also read that Apps2SD or similar apps can help but are more limited. They also require rooting the phone anyway)

I went through over 60 pages of this thread yet but most of the information seems now obsolete (obviously).

What would be the best way to enable Adoptable Storage and make my SD card work as internal storage? in 2022...

Thank you very much in advance for your advice.

Best,
-a-

I have now the phone unlocked and TWRP installed as custom recovery. (All versions after 3.1.1-0 won't work. the phone boots into recovery but the screen is stuck displaying the honor logo).

I found several threads from @ksrt12 about roms for this device (AEX, dotOS, RR, Slim7) however all DL links are dead or point to incompatible roms (for cherryplus devices rather than cherry) that failed to install from TWRP (error message about rom incompatibility).

Can anyone here post a link to a rom that will work on the Che2-L11 and support Adoptable Storage?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Best,

    -Go to ‘Developer options’ and enable ‘USB debugging’
    -Connect Honor 4x to PC (with HiSuite successfully connected)
    -Extract zip file downloaded from b) i) to a folder (e.g. adbtools)

    Final words, do this on your own risks as it voids the phone warranty.

    Please note: This thread is specific to the Che2-L11 model Honor 4x​
    For discussion pertaining to the Che1-L04 model click here.


    :confused: Because there are some significant differences between the Honor 4x variants information can get confusing quite easily, therefore I decided to start a thread dedicated to the Che2-L11.

    :good: Any information or discussion is welcome as long as it is about this particular model.

    :fingers-crossed: Since the device is still relatively fresh, information is scarce. I will try to update and expand this post as we discover the possibilities of our shiny new phone.


    Rooting the Che2-L11
    There are currently no known tools or exploits that can be used to gain root under the stock firmware. Unlocking the bootloader will allow full access to the device, however at this time there are no known working custom recoveries or roms.

    The official Huawei unlock page doesn't support it as of yet, neither by editing the product model information on that page like it works for some other models. Instead you can send an e-mail to [email protected] and provide the same information as requested on the unlock page.

    Once you obtain the correct unlock code you can follow the unlocking procedure. Be careful when experimenting with recoveries or roms intended for other or similar models, they may brick or damage your device.


    SD Cards >32GB
    Although not officially supported, 64GB cards seem to work fine. The phone will recognise and use their full capacity automatically. It will most likely support 128GB cards as well but this is not yet confirmed.


    Model numbers
    The Honor 4x is being sold under several different model numbers divided into two basic groups: Che1 and Che2. Che stands for Cherry.

    Che1 is based on the Snapdragon 410 chipset: Che1-CL10 (China/Telecom), Che1-CL20 (China/Netcom), Che1-L04 (India/Flipkart) and Che1-UL00.

    Che2 is based on the Kirin 620 chipset: Che2-L11 (Europe), Che2-L12, Che2-L23, Che2-TL00, Che2-TL00H, Che2-TL00M and Che2-UL00.

    Somebody ported TWRP-recovery to the Honor 4C (CHM-CM00), a Phone similar to our 4X with Kirin620.
    Just like the coface-CWM recovery for Android 4.4, this TWRP-recovery also works on our 4X with Lollipop to install SuperSU and have root acces.
    I flashed it and it works, but i didn't test al features like backup etc. Just be carefull, i'm not responsible if you brick your Phone. This recovery is only for devices with Lollipop firmware, so at this moment only if you have installed the 5.1.1 Beta ROM.

    Root your Honor 4X (Che2-L11) on Lollipop.
    • First of all, You should Unlock Bootloader. In post 17 on page 2 of this thread you find a tutorial to get the unlock code. If Huawei doesn't respond, maybe you can try the method of [MENTION=337852]Inshaalmirza, but i haven't tested it.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/general/general/honor-4c-root-twrplollipop-recovery-t3208922
    • Download the file with ADB and TWRP recovery from Google drive from member @inshaalmirza: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0iMDu5QRxNiVUpWRnRrN0tJQjg/view?usp=sharing
    • Unzip it and move the cursor on the folder ADB, hold Shift and the right mouse button and choose "Open Command Window here";


    connect your phone to the PC in the "media device";
    at the command prompt and type “ADB Devices”
    then type “ADB reboot bootloader” (the device will reboot mode fastboot);

    After your phone has entered bootloader mode (white screen with green android robot) you can flash the recovery:
    type “fastboot flash recovery twrp.img”
    Then type: “fastboot reboot”

    This will reboot your phone.
    Now move the Root.zip file (it is in the downloaded ADB-file) to your SD-card.
    Switch of your phone and reboot it into recovery, by pressing Volume Up+Power button. Your phone boots into recovery mode, with the TeamWin screen.
    Install the root.zip file from your Sd-card, and reboot your phone. Now your phone is rooted, and you can install apps like Titanium Backup, Viper4Android and Xposed 

    If You want To flash Stock Recovery again (you need it to update the original Lollipop ROM from Honor that is expected october 20), download the stock-recovery from post #151 (https://drive.google.com/folderview?...ms&usp=sharing ) en replace it in the ADB-file.
    Use these commands In Fastboot Mode:
    “fastboot flash recovery stock.img”
    and
    “fastboot reboot”

    TWRP 3.0.2-0 for Huawei Honor 4X / 4C (based on Kirin SoC)
    I had already compiled TWRP for 4C, so I decided to compile one for 4X. This image removes the 4C CHM-U01 branding and identifies device as 'cherry'. Please test this and report bugs if any.
    Download Link: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24533103863138240

    Current Bugs (not crucial):
    • Touch might not work on first boot to recovery. Simply hold the power button to forcibly reboot the device. After that, reboot back to recovery and touch will work.
    • You'll get a big red error in recovery logs regarding 3rdmodem not getting mounted due to wrong arguments. It's really a typo error by me and I'll fix it in (maybe) future releases. It's not a big crucial bug and won't affect working of the recovery.

    I need your help :highfive:
    I am currently working on AOSP 6.0.1 for Honor 4C and Honor 4X (Kirin). The current state of the project is unknown as I'm currently doing my first build of the project (which has now failed at sepolicy errors :( ). However, I need all the help I can get. If you have the knowledge about building, I would be really happy if you could help me in getting a pure AOSP experience on our device.
