OK. So, I'm new to KK, but I understand new system only allows Google installed apps to write to SD card. I'm having an issue where I cannot save an excel file that's on my SD card. I've done/tried the following actions:

- I flashed this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2725121
- I installed SD Fix; it said my SD card was already gtg--no need to do anything.
- I tried all options listed on this page: http://technofaq.org/posts/2014/04/f...ndroid-kitkat/

Maybe I'm not fully aware. Should I be able to save files to SD card if rooted/applied the above approaches? Is there something I'm missing?

I'm able to modify a PDF using ezPDF and save it. Perhaps it's the office applications I'm using: OfficeSuite and Hancom?

I installed sdfix from nextapp, and it worked fine. Have you rebooted? Maybey it is something to do with that rom I'm running http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2720631

Could you try replicating what I'm trying to accomplish? Have an excel on your SD card and then try to open/modify/and save it in the same spot. If it works, let me know what office app you're using?

Thnx.

I sent the excel to my Note 3 and tried it. It worked no problem...with OfficeSuite. Huh...

I just opened OfficeSuite Pro itself, i.e. didn't select it by selecting a file. When I click on SD card, I get a message saying application only has read access to sd card. Anyone know how to fix it?

Yes...Kingsoft works. I would like my other apps to also work...

Ok. I updated officesuite on Note 3 and lost write access on SD card. Uninstalled and reinatalled older version and could write to SD again. It seems like something is conflicting between the programs and kk?

Yeah that's frustrating, I was having trouble formatting my papers for school in MLA. I tried a bunch of office apps and now I use splashtop remote desktop and Microsoft office. After learning all the shortcuts in splashtop it works pretty well. Splashtop works better than Samsung remote desktop IMHO.
