Default [Q] Cannot write in to SD card (GN3 SM-N900 Kitkat 4.4.2)

I live in Thailand.
Galaxy Note3 (SM-N900) was updated to Kitkat4.4.2 yesterday.
When updating, it became impossible to write in a micro SD card.
New holder addition, file copy & paste, delete, and an application backup etc. cannot be performed.
Both are not made although checked by ES file manager and the ASTRO file manager.

But the photo taken with the standard camera can be saved on SD card.
Was the permission method to SD card changed?
Doesn't someone know the solution?

There is quite a few threads about this as it has been discussed at length, most of which also provide a fix.

I also live in Thailand, use an N900 and updated with the Thai 4.4.2 and had this same problem. I followed the instructions on this page

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2617921

and it worked for me.

NOTE: your phone must be rooted!

Instructions here for rooting: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?

Hope it helps
