Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my thread. This morning I updated to kit Kat and now I just opened sygic. It says sd card access denied. So I searched it up and it turns out that I need to root my phone to change some settings as kit Kat prevents writing to the SD card I think. Is there a way without rooting my phone?

Even if need to root my phone, does rooting void my warranty? And can I get future updates via Ota /Sony pc companion?

This is really urgent because I need to use sygic over the weekend. (Stupid mobilicity doesn't have coverage in Waterloo!)

Thank you!

Rooting might Void your warranty also depends upon the method you use to root. yes you can get future updates as long as you are in stock rom OTA or PCC.

I see only two possibilities: root or install sygic to internal storage. There is might also third possibility for you, it works with iGo navigation, put sygic to internal storage and maps to SD card.

Thanks for the replies.

If I install sygic to my phone's storage, it doesn't need root right? And my phone is running out of space. Any recommendations for a app to sd app?

Thanks!

Look for sdfix on play store that should help you restore writing privileges. 😀
