Am I missing something here? I have S-Off, supersu.zip flashed via cwm recovery installed so have full root, and even went a step further and flashed the unlocked stock kernal for full write access???
Also, in a perfect world I want everything I do such as downloads and screenshots taken go to my external sd card, not internal. I now have the HTC stock internet app and in settings I have it set for downloads to go to external sd card. Does this work? Haven't tried it yet.
Anyway to get screenshots I take to save in external sd card? Basically only thing I want installed on internal storage is apps I download and obviously tweaks and what not. Don't want to waste internal space with what can be saved by default to my 64gb external sd card. Appreciate any help on any of the above, thank you.
Xposed works perfectly to enable write to external SD. If you've never used Xposed before here's the Tutorial Thread for the framework (modules have their own support threads and Q & A threads): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401
Download the XPosed framework installer, open the app.
install/update the framework, select cancel when it asks you to reboot (So you don't have to reboot twice)
navigate back then tap "Download" for modules. You should see the module "Handle External Storage or you can just search it. More info at this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...utmk=201568018
Download the module
Check the box for the module
Reboot now everything should work.
And the best file explorer for me is FX file explorer. Just an incredible UI in my opinion. File movement happens in the background so you can keep working. My favorite file manager hands down.
