Default Ti Backup and Helium can not write to SD Card

Is anyone else experianceing this issue? I just came over from an S4 that was running an AOSP ROM. I am now running our stock ROM, rooted with Xposed. Titanium Backup and Helium say that my external SD card can not be accessed/written to. I have fixed permissions via ROM Manager since I have Philz which doesn't have a fix permissions option. Still cant write to external SD. Any suggestions?

A simple search would have found dozens of threads discussing this and describing workarounds. In short, Kitkat cripples the ability of third party apps to freely write to your SD card obstensibly in the interests of security a la IOS.

That is.. don't let end users do anything other than browse the web or use simplistic apps and we can protect your device from the scary internet, malware and so forth.

Rooted devices can easily restore the functionality.

Thanks captain obvious. Unfortunately, this is not my issue. It works when Xposed is not installed and doesn't work when Xposed is installed... Search that for me and report back.

The solution should be readily apparent. Even to you. And with that attitude, connect the dots yourself.

Insight into the cause would be most helpful as the "solution" is more of a work around. Knowing the cause would benefit the community. a quick glance back at the OP might have necessary.
