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?
