Database [Q] solution for sd-card write issue in kitkat for non-rooted devices?


Just upgraded my Note 10.1 2014 WiFi edition to 4.4.2.

Figured out I can't write to sd card.

Read some pages about the problem but I couldn't find a solution for non-rooted devices...

Is there any?

you can write to sdcard using myfiles app or stock browser.
Actual phone : Nexus 5 16Go Red (old phone : Samsung Galaxy SIII)
Actual tablet : Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition SM-P600 stock rooted with xposed modules (old tablet : Samsung Galaxy Tab P7510)

Now the down side of this - I purchased this tablet because of the SPen, screen resolution and external SD card slot. After KK I was no longer able to sync my docs with FolderSync as the directories I used are located on the EXT card yet I was able to find a temp work around with My Files by far not ideal. Working with a lot of PDF documents for study and work this was my next stop now I could no longer edit or markup my PDF documents as I could not save them as they were located on my EXT card.This was the show stopper for me next stop was rooting.
