How To Fix LG G2 Memory Error, If It’s Showing 16GB Instead Of 32GB

Most of the OEMs release their device in different variations according to localization, network connectivity and also storage capabilities and obviously the more storage the smartphone has the higher the rate will be. LG G2 was released in 2013 and was released in 10 different variants and two models with 16 and 32 GB storage. Now if you have purchased a 32GB LG G2 and because of a Wrong firmware flash or due to any other problem, it is showing 16GB instead of 32GB, what will you do, first thing, Freak Out! next thing, install any other custom ROM and if that doesn’t work either, start looking for the solution.

If you are looking for a solution to such thing then you are on the right spot, last time we posted the same thing about Nexus 5 and it worked like a charm, it recovered the Nexus 5 from 16 to 32 GB again. It mostly happens, when you tired to install a 16GB model firmware on 32GB model, sometimes it happens because of a hard reset. Many times it can be solved by restoring the device to the original firmware, if still not then follow the tutorial below.

su
cd /system
./dd if=/system/bin/sgpt32g.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=61071327 conv=notrunc

    This code is wrong.

    ./dd if=/system/sgpt32g.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=61071327 conv=notrunc
    ./dd if=/system/pgpt32g.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=0 conv=notrunc

    It should be:

    ./dd if=/system/bin/sgpt32g.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=61071327 conv=notrunc
    ./dd if=/system/bin/pgpt32g.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=0 conv=notrunc

    As you put your files in System/bin.
    It should work if you do this way.
    Good luck!

    Hello . I am having the same issue and still I can’t solve because I can’t go back to my stock rom . And in the another thread or article it says that the phone must be kitkat but the stock firmware of my phone is now lollipop and I can’t find any working links to download some kdz (particularly kitkat).

    Help thanks 🙂

    you wrote “Now you need to install the 32Gb firmware”, while we flash the firmware with “lg flashtool 2014” must we flash it with “cse flash” option or “normal flash” does it matter
