Default For Those Suffering "Insufficient Storage" with Titanium Backup

If this has been posted in this section or already stated in a easily viewable spot, feel free to delete this.

After a while of frustration and mixed answers and searching for a solution, I found one, well two.

This is for those who are having issues with Titanium Backup refusing to backup and such giving the error. The issue comes down to permissions. You can simply move your backup folder to your internal storage to fix it, which I hate, or you can do some edits.

No credit goes to me. Thank the guy who's post I came across that works on the S3 located at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=357

All you need to do is make a simple edit in your platform.xml under etc/permissions in the root of your phone using a root Explorer app. Quoted from Bleez99

" I have a fix. I did a little research and found that you can edit /etc/permissions/platform.xml and add a group to WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

Original:
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
</permission>

Add the media_rw group:


<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />
</permission>


" after that save and exit and restart your phone and all should work. I will edit this in the morning so the person responsible for their post will get proper credit. So happy now.

Just wanted to add for anyone's knowledge that may find this thread in a search.

3. Several apps on the Play Store that make the appropriate changes for you. Search for KitKat SD Fix.

4. I believe that using any custom kernel that is set to Permissive instead of Enforcing will do the trick, too. At the time of this writing:

a. Cnexus' Permissive but otherwise completely stock version of the ND8 kernel.

b. Cnexus' NexTkernel.

c. Ktoonsez' KT747 kernel for TouchWiz 4.4.2.

5. Flash a custom TouchWiz 4.4.2 ROM, which usually already have the necessary changes and/or kernel.

Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII on TouchWiz 4.4.2 with Conquest: Singularity v6.3, Ktoonsez' latest kernel and the latest Philz Touch Recovery.

How are any of us less advanced users meant to know Sdcard fix refers to issues like that? XD

And I forgot:


6. Once all (popular) apps get updated to support KitKat appropriately, no fix will be necessary. Technically, it's the app that's broken, not KitKat.
