Default Ext Sd card fix (flashable zip)

Hey guys, well as we all know the HTC One M8 launched with KitKat, so that comes in with the new permissions set by Google regarding the ext storage.. My friend was having trouble moving files and downloading to the external sd card with his shiny new M8, so I made this flashable zip for him and everything is working how its always worked with previous android versions.. I don't own this device but I thought I'd share this zip for those who want to stay stock but want to have full control to the external storage.. What I did is on this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2617921 and made it into a flashable zip, so I cannot take full credit for this.. Download is attached

As usual, take precautionary measures and make a nandroid.. I can't be held responsible for anything that you do with your phone.

Moving on...

1) Download zip
2) Move to internal or ext storage if downloaded from pc or other device
3) Enter custom recovery and flash
4) Reboot
5) Profit

Apologies, but new at this. I assume I have to root first. By enter custom recovery, are you talking about TWRP? I assume this is all done on the phone and does not need PC intervention?

Thanks

Well you don't really need root just a custom recovery, and yes like twrp.. No PC intervention if you have twrp, just download the zip and flash

Is this zip just the platform.xml? I was just wondering cause all I did was add a new uid to my platform.xml and it fixed it, just curious.
