[Q] Unable to delete files in /storage as root?
After reformatting (keeping the sdcard partition) and reinstalling android on my rooted Moto X, Titanium Backup stopped working saying "insufficient free space". When I check space on the device it's got plenty.
As a test, when I tried to delete /storage/emulated/0/TitaniumBackup/org.mozilla.firefox-20140326-060005.tar.gz I get the error
rm failed for TitaniumBackup/org.mozilla.firefox-20140326-060005.tar.gz, Permission denied
Checking the file permissions, it looks like it's writable
1|root@ghost:/storage/emulated/0 # ls -l TitaniumBackup/org.mozilla.firefox-20140326-060005.tar.gz
-rw-rw---- root sdcard_r 5048353 2014-04-10 07:58 org.mozilla.firefox-20140326-060005.tar.gz
But just to be sure, I ran
chmod 777 TitaniumBackup/org.mozilla.firefox-20140326-060005.tar.gz
Which didn't seem to make any difference
When I run mount, it appears to be writable.
/dev/fuse /storage/emulated/0 fuse rw,relatime,user_id=1023,group_id=1023,default_permissions,allow_other 0 0
Other apps are able to write to the sdcard partition, as best as I've noticed the /TitaniumBackup/ directory is the only one not working.
Is there anything else I can try other than completely reformatting my phone?
