I'm having problems with the new sd card kitkat permissions, I have rooted my phone for that reason,I have applied the fix but nothing seems to make it work.

The sd card is readable, I am simply unable to write anything on it from my phone.

1. I am using a rooted device, no need to tell me a need a rooted phone.
2. I have used 2 different apps to modify the permissions file
3. platform.xml as been correctly modified
4. I am unable to copy files to the sd card from my computer when its in my Z1.

What is wrong with my phone and as this happened to anyone else ?

If you have 2 apps they may be causing conflicts

Please post a copy of your platform.xml

That seems correct.

Try to create a file on your SD card using any explorer app that is not installed in system (i.e one you download from the play store)

If that works then the fix is working, it may be something to do with your PC

Try putting your sd card into your PC and seeing if you can create a file directly onto it that way

I'm able to create a file from a computer but only from an adapter, not directly in my phone.

I take it you mean that if you put your sdcard into a card reader or sdcard slot in our PC it works, but not when you are connectint the phone via usb cable

If so, what error does it give? Can you copy things off the card?

Yes I can copy things to my computer.
If I try to delete something off of it, it will act as if its deleted but when I remove it and plug it back its still there.
