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.

Still works!
This worked on my new "refurbished" Galaxy Tab 12.2 sm-t900. It is simply amazing that you have to root and mod a tab to get it to work the way it should, much less get enhanced usability out of it...
