I understand stock Android 4.4.2 is unable to write to an external SD card.

Are CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 4 (and hopefully soon to be released Milestone 5) on the G Pad 8.3 able to write to external SD card?

That is directly from the G Pad not using a computer. I'm not interested if I cannot move apps to SD card, just move files around.

Thanks

CyanogenMod,i don't know,but use a Mod,you can make self.
In System/etc/permissions
is a file names Platform.xml.
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />
</permission>
Add this red line and if it works

So this will allow Titanium Backup to store the backups to the sd card? If so, thanks!

Thanks letschky. Nice to hear if CM11 doesn't support this out the box it's easy to do yourself.

I presume any text editor will suffice?
