Default Can't download to sd card??

It seems I can't download anything to my sd card through Boat browser. Tried getting the weaksauce apk and it wouldn't download while set to save to sd card. Had to switch it back to internal storage. Anyone else notice this? Is it just Boat browser or Kit Kat? I thought I downloaded some stuff before straight to ad card.

It's a KitKat problem. Won't be able to write to the SD card until we get full root and not just /system/xbin root (WeakSauce).

Not true. You can write to sd with Weaksauce. Just install Xposed and use the Xposed module.

I have had the odd issue or two with it. But also have gone most of the day without trouble. Where I see trouble is usually where I am fiddling with stuff alot. That said, Enabling Xposed is a fast matter and if you don't want it enabled all the time you can just go and do it fast for some SD card work then disable it when done.

I was using Xposed with App Settings changing the DPI and all my stuff, a module to enable writing to SD, a module to hide NFC icon, and GavityBox cleaning up my statusbar and usually had no issues.

Thanks. I'll give that a shot because lack of SD card R/W is irritating me to say the least.
