A well‑known workaround in such case is this (and as you can see with those command this didn’t worked for me) :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>adb shell
gts3llte:/ $ sm set-force-adoptable on
gts3llte:/ $ sm list-disks adoptable
gts3llte:/ $ sm partition disk:179,64 mixed 50
gts3llte:/ $ sm mount private:179,67
gts3llte:/ $ sm list-volumes all
private:179,67 unmountable
private mounted null
public:179,65 mounted 3531-1DC7
emulated mounted null
gts3llte:/ $ reboot

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>

But starting with Android Pie, those commands were moved from vold to Binder and as sm only affects vold some of the commands above are now dummy..

This also affects the way to do it with root. Though in my case, now that I did this, going to storage settings systematically crash the settings app.

So how to use sd card as internal storage with newer versions of android ?
