I've been getting this error whenever I try to copy anything onto a flash drive:
"EACCES (Permission denied)"

It used to work just fine before, so I don't know why it isn't working now.

The flash drive is EXFAT formatted. Phone is rooted, running ElementalX with EXFAT support ticked and Stickmount Pro. Reading any file still works.

Any ideas as to what happened?

What location are you browsing to to get to the flash drive? Is it the latest elemental?

I believe so, as long as the kernel does as well. I know I've been able to write to this drive before, just haven't done so in a while.
