Default [FIX] Z Ultra GPE 4.4.2 SDCard Write Fix

TO DO THIS YOU MUST BE ROOTED


If you guys haven't noticed you can't copy a file from internal sd to external sd (confirmed by me and others) Well I figured it out.

I remember something about OTG not being able to read from external on apps like Tibu with other devices. I did something similar to get it to work on the ZU GPE.

If you are rooted you can copy this file to /etc/permissions/

I tested copying a file from internal to external and it worked fine after this change.

I did make a couple changes to the file, I'm not sure which did it but one of them did. I am attaching the file

Just rename from platform.xml.zip to platform.xml, back up existing file(the attached file is NOT a zip.. it's a XML file just remove .zip from the end of the filename), copy new file and change permissions to match the old file
Attached Files
File Type: zip platform.xml.zip - [Click for QR Code] (6.0 KB, 598 views)

Same with me before.. I got messed copying this.. Had to reflash ROM. The permission is rw-r--r--

Clear steps:
Download file
Copy to etc/permissions folder
Find the old platform.xml and renamed it with platform.xml.bak (as a backup)
Rename the platform.xml.zip to platform.xml
Set the permission as same as old file (rw-r--r--)
Reboot.. And done
