You have to restart after you edit a system file so the changes will load. Restarting after you make any system changes is almost always required, including freezing and deleting apps if you want to see the immediate benefit.

Thanks

Have you tried running this app?

Check out "SDFix: KitKat Writable MicroSD"
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=nextapp.sdfix

If not it sounds like back to stock is in your near future. Good luck.

Can you play files via root explorer ?

What ROM you have ?

What Version of Titanium Backup ?

1. Using a root-enabled file manager, navigate to /system/etc/permissions*
2. Edit platform.xml and find the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.
3. Add an additional group definition for this permission...<group gid="media_rw" />
4. Save the changes to the file.
5. Restart.


Should work

🙏🙏Thank Me Up If I Helped You 🙏🙏

Thanks work for me

I ran the SDfix app and checked for the permission xml edit. Possibly SDfix did the edit for me since it is there as listed in this thread, but TBup still can't save to the external SD card. I did set up Foldermount and linked so supposedly TBup is saving to the external card but a real fix would be great.

Are you getting a write permission error without foldemount, or is it just saving to the phone and not the sdcard?
