So the good news is that we now have root for the phone, but I can't get Ti backup to recognise my external sd card. I have installed and run Netapp sdfix.
I also can't seem to install the exposed framework due to sd card issues.
Anyone else having problems or maybe do I just have a flaky ad card?

OK Its not a flaky SD card as I tried another one that is working fine in another HTC device and doesnt work either.
Something strange going on methinks.

I also tried to get S-off using firewater which worked on my M8 but did nothing on the E8.. anyone else try it yet?

Interested to try firewater. What is your E8 model that you had tried?

Did you finally manage to get sd-write working??

I tried a lot of sd fix patches and then i think it worked with the xposed module which fixes sd-card write on kitkat.
I dont know which one worked exactly but now its working fine.

Issues for me are
1. alogcat doesnt work properly. shows only few lines of log and then poof.. just remains there..
2. Titanium Backup doesnt show external sd-card although now it can write to it.

anyone know anything that can work please?

thanks
Greg
