Default Security Level Locked to High


after updating my device to 4.4.2 I have problems with writing to external sd from third party apps... after searching around, I found that the security level is locked to high... I change to typical and it turns again to high... does anyone knows why happening that and how to to solve that problem?

Thank you

*it is European model and wears stock rom*

Evil Google changed permissions, changing security won't do nothing, you need to root and then change permissions manually or download and install new file with permissions already fixed. Search forums there is tons of posting about it and how to fix.
