Question [Q] Platform.xml - Samsung Galaxy Trend GT-S7580

Hi,
Apologies if in wrong section, but I have a query about updating the platform.xml file on my Samsung Galaxy Trend GT-S7580
to allow rw access to the external sd card.

I have rooted the phone and mounted the file system, via Mount /system (rw/ro) app. (check root and Titanium backup confirm it as rooted)

I can navigate to and update/save the platform.xml file, however whenever I restart the phone the file reverts to its original and my changed are lost.
Before restarting I was able to create a new folder etc on the sxt sd card, but again after restarting the folder seemed to be gone too!

Is there anything I am doing wrong, or additional steps I am missing out on?

Any help is much appreciated

Update .... turns out its the microSD card that is the problem. Cant seen to write or delete from it even though its not read only.
Got a new card and hey presto, worked fine
