Recently many users have been having issues with their internal sdcard not being writable, either due to flashing AOSP and then touchwiz or other reasons. This little guide will help you fix this issue.


1. Read all the steps before attempting this

2. I have used this method to successfully fix my sdcard and make it usable


1. You will need root

2. You will need terminal emulator on your phone

3. You will need some reading skills and glasses if your eyes are weak..


1. Open terminal emulator

2. Type "su"

Your screen should look like this



Now press enter

3. Now type this command, "restorecon -v -R /data/media"

Your screen should look like this now


restorecon -v -R /data/media

Now press enter

4. Now you can use your internal sdcard without any issues
