I have the Developers Edition of S5 and I successfully flashed recovery TWRP and root last night. I tried backing up apps to ext sd card in Titanium Backup but it keeps saying insufficent storage available error. However i can install play store apps without problems. I have over 5GB of data free. And my sd cards wont show via usb over computer on Mac. The option is grey out and android transfer doesnt work displaying an error message to restart device but it doesnt work either. USB debugging is enabled. I installed and uninstalled kies3 for Mac which also wont work. Any suggestions on these problems that can fix them? I'm pretty frusterated at the moment. I didnt have this problem with my HTC Rezound before.

1) you need to have sdcard access via root to write to it. Blame kitkat. Use this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=nextapp.sdfix

2) I can all but guarantee your backup exceeds your available 5gbs free, that's why it's failing. Backup one or two apps and I bet they go through.

Thanks, this will save me from having to make the config changes myself to fix the stupid broken app permission setting when I root my new dev edition =)
