Default [Q] Titanium Backup and SD card

Hi,
I can't seem to get TiBu to write to my external hard drive. I checked the old posts but they did not help with this. I used an SD fixer but that didn't help.
Thanks

All well

Go to preferences

Then backup settings

And select your backup folder as extsdcard

Yeah I tried that. Thats why I said it won't let me write to the SD card. It says "This is not a writable folder" on anything on the extSD card

Is it read only or something ?

Can you play files via root explorer ?

What ROM you have ?

What Version of Titanium Backup ?

1. Using a root-enabled file manager, navigate to /system/etc/permissions*
2. Edit platform.xml and find the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.
3. Add an additional group definition for this permission...<group gid="media_rw" />
4. Save the changes to the file.
5. Restart.


Should work

That one works perfectly. I had tried the manual edit last week and it didn't work, but this solved the problem.

Synergy ROM and KT747 JB kernel
