Default [Q] G Pro 2 (D838) 3rd party app can't save into external SD

Well, I just received my LG G Pro 2 (D838) and it has Android 4.4.2 inside.
Somehow, I couldn't save the file which generated by 3rd party app into the external SD card.
I search the answer on web but the possible way to solve the problem is root the cellphone.
I am worrying that it couldn't process OTA update after I root the LG-D838

This is only disadvantage of D838 and this will be big help for me and other owners.

I am also expecting the 3rd party roms, such as AOKP or CM can be released soon^^
Can't wait to flash the phone with other roms

That is part of 4.4.2 it is on every phone... Google changed some things to not allow apps to write to external sd . according to Google app developers will have to update to new way and things will be fine.... But if you can root folder Mount in app store will fix it

Let me check on that. My folks may know some tricks on how this can be done. rooting the phone may do the trick.

It's the Google security working on 4.4.2
Solution is to root your phone and edit the platform.xml file or
Install xposed framework and the module handleexternalstorage, reboot and your good to go

Default About rooting the D838

Sure, I would like to root the phone and I did search the solution on the web.
Somehow, IORoot might be the solution but it's not support the LG D838 Taiwan Edition.
I tried the latest version this morning but it's not work...

May I should just wait until someone develop the proper rom for this device.

Google changed some things to not allow apps to write to external sd, but my friends manipulated the root sequence and it works.

As I said you can edit platform.xml in the root of your device to allow media write or use the xposed framework module handleexternalstorage. These methods can only be done on a rooted device. Since the LG G Pro 2 is only out for a few days, wait for the proper rooting tool and procedure before doing so.
