Default [Q] N900 kitkat microsd card issue

Hey guys. I bought this 64gig micro sd card and I couldnt manage to make it work on my Note 3 (It works on my S3 mini) I started to worry if this is a software issue. I can't write anything but it reads whatever in it. Can you please help me? Thanks!

It's a new "feature" in KitKat, which renders sd cards useless. If you are rooted you can try the xposed module "HandleExternalStorage".

or you can modify your platform.xml file and add read write permissions for media.

Note: The system can still use the external SD card so you can still move an app to the SD card I believe.

Ah, I forgot something really important. If you have root access, download something like Terminal Emulator and execute:
"su" to get root access and after that:
"restorecon -v -R /data/media"
This often fixes the problem!

Thanks a lot for your help but the issue is I'm still on stock. I couldn't figure out how to root and not void warranty I saw something like triangle away but if that's going to work about warranty bit how am I going to unroot without seeing the warranty bit 1?

Most big apps have been updated to work with the bew permissions. ES file explorer, Quickpic..

No need to root for that.
