My File can update the SD card without root or fix. Only third party applications need a fix.

Question This fix doesnīt work on my device. Why?
I am trying to use the sdcard-fix on my Note 4, but still canīt get my ext. SD-card to be writable. I followed the instructions neatly, no typo, rooted, etc. but to no avail. Many months ago I already applied the same SD-card-fix on my previous phone (LG G2) - at that time it worked perfectly.

This is the setting how the platform.xml looks on my device:
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />

Here is some further info that I gathered from Root Explorer . Maybe there is something not correct with those settings.
The owner of the "storage/extSdCard"-Folder is: Owner: 0 - root; Group 0 - root
The permissions of the "storage/extSdCard"-Folder are set to: 0771
The permissions for mnt/media_rw are set to: 0700

I tried to set the permissions for mnt/media_rw to 0744, which immediately after input gets displayed on the Root Explorer properly. But after a reboot it automatically goes back to 0700.

Any ideas what could be wrong here?
I just noticed that in the Note 4, storage/external_SD is called storage/extSdCard instead. Could that be causing the problem?

Problem solved. My sd-card itself was faulty.

I have answered this a long while ago in the S3 forums, but here is the TLR...

Boot to recovery.
Mount /storage/sdcard1

adb shell
cd /storage/sdcard1
chown -R 1023:1023 .

Problem solved.

You can also do it on any Linux machine or VM, probably the ext filesystem driver for Windows too.
