Really LOVE my HTC One M8,

but I HATE the fact that you can't save folders/files onto the Ext Card. Can you downgrade to a previous ROM that isn't KitKat?

Thanks!

Custom ROM's have that ability. Or maybe it's a function of the kernel...or a combination of both... Either way, ROM that beast.

If you're rooted, you can follow the instructions here to get external sdcard write access.

I can confirm that it works.

Try force restarting it (vol up + power or vol down + power I can't remember which) clear dalvik and cache and reboot again

Got into recovery and cleared both caches and rebooted but still stuck on VZW. May have to just bite the bullet and factory reset.

Oof. I dunno man it worked perfectly for me FWIW the SkyFall ROM is mostly stock and has sd card write access out of the box.

I've also uploaded my own permissions.xml file https://www.dropbox.com/s/nmz9tiyjljbeypi/platform.xml here. Good luck, sorry that link didn't work out for you.

Easiest way is to download xposed framework and download handle external storage module.

Thumbs up Ext Card FIX
After looking around I found the link below explaining three ways to do it. I used the NextApp SDFix app. It can even be downloaded from Play Store.

It seems to have worked for me. I copied a few random files and transferred them both to and from Ext SD Card.

BE SURE AND RESTART YOUR PHONE AFTER INSTALLING APP.
