The first thing that bothered me after updating to stock 4.4.2 is the lack of SD card write for media.

Well here i fixed that, (ROOTED users only)

using your root explorer, navigate to /system/etc/permissions/

now look for "platform.xml" back up this file somewhere in case anything goes wrong.
now replace this file with the modified file attached, set correct permissions and reboot!

In case anyone is wondering what change is in the modified file, it is a permission added to write media to sdcard, ( "<group gid="media_rw" />" under external storage)

unzip the attached file (it should read platform.xml), and do leave the feedback.

havent tried the app, but then again why would you want to keep an extra app for something that can be fixed

This doesnt change the directory, only allows the apps to write to sd card.

install app, run app, uninstall app. solved with no user interference between and safe from bootloops. also, on JellyBean the sdcard direcotry was the same as KK (storage/sdcard1)

Well part of the reason why I prefer Android is the learning and understanding that comes with messing around with it, so I prefer modifying the system as per my needs

With that said, if the app doesn't require to be kept after fixing the issue it's definitely a good option for the ones who don't want to go with all the trouble.

I know bro, I'm usually doing things with android modifying stuff here and there but sadly most users won't even do a single search after getting into a problem and that's kinda irritating after some time...
