I am trying to mount media partition mount point as /storage/emulated but it showing mounting and media files are showing in /storage/emulated.

but i am unable to find images in gallery, what is mount point to mount media partition for internal storage in anrdoid.

I am using android-5.1.1 (lollipop)

Can you please help me as early as possible?


The default mount point for internal storage till Android 5.1.1 is /storage/emulated/0. To mount your internal storage manually, you may use the following commands =>

mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir /storage/emulated/0
mount /data/media/0 /storage/emulated/0

  • The above syntax is correct – user3530565 Jun 27 '16 at 11:51
  • Didn't get your question. You want to edit the fstab file? – Subhranil Jun 28 '16 at 5:36
  • /data/media isn't a partition, it's just a directory which is emulated over /storage/emulated. Mount command won't work this way. – Irfan Latif Oct 24 '19 at 21:25
