Does applying root to an AT&T S5 allow you to use apps like es file Explorer to move files from the phone storage to an SD card without write errors? Thanks.

U need to go to /system/etc/permissions, find platform.xml and add

<group gid="media_rw" />

to WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.

Then save and reboot.

I tried to add the line you mentioned, but when I tried to save it and continue to reboot I got an error that the file couldn't be saved. I'm using ES File Explorer trying to edit the file. Any ideas?

You need to mount /system as read / write ( click on Root Explorer in the navigation drawer of Es Explorer ).

Where do I put it exactly or does it not matter? This is what I see :
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE">
<group gid="sdcard_r"/>
<group gid="sdcard_rw"/>
<group gid="media_rw"/></permission>

thanks.
