Recently many users have been having issues with their internal sdcard not being writable, either due to flashing AOSP and then touchwiz or other reasons. This little guide will help you fix this issue.


Notes-

1. Read all the steps before attempting this

2. I have used this method to successfully fix my sdcard and make it usable


Prerequisites-

1. You will need root

2. You will need terminal emulator on your phone

3. You will need some reading skills and glasses if your eyes are weak..


Steps-

1. Open terminal emulator

2. Type "su"

Your screen should look like this

Quote:

su

Now press enter

3. Now type this command, "restorecon -v -R /data/media"

Your screen should look like this now

Quote:

su
restorecon -v -R /data/media

Now press enter

4. Now you can use your internal sdcard without any issues

Appreciate the support. Didn't really do much, but at least now new users will find a step by step way to fix their internal storage.

Possibly the op should consider editing to advise that this solution, like others requires root.

True! it is also possible that when given "su" root is implied!!!
