Well this probably explains why even with root access on I can no longer access my external sd card from CM file manager anymore since I upgraded from 10.2 to 11 nightly... Way to go google... Going to the way of apple are you?

From TFA:

There are solutions to this problem for users with root access. Users without root access appear to be screwed.
If you're on Kit Kat on an LGOG, you're rooted.
