Default [Q] will 4.4.3 solve the SD card issue?

So 4.4.3 is already released for nexus and some Samsung devices.

Wonder if there is any chance that it will fix SD card issue when it will appear on our tegra notes ?

I must say that even if I do not give the monkey about apps (since they can have the access to their folders only and if devs will prepare them for this apps should work just fine) I am mad at Google that it took my most used function of file management!

I have used my tablet to download and browse on the go my photos from slr now its impossible since my 64gb cards is useless in its slot.

As I understand NVIDIA could solve my biggest issue with KitKat just by addition ng any file browser into their ROM.

Hopefully they will do so fingers crossed.

I have just update my note but it seems that I still can't use any file manager to copy files from main memory to SD card. Could you confirm if you can move files and create and delete files and folders on SD card? If so which file manager are you using? I have tried solid explorer, ES3 and total Commander.

I don't have any issue moving to SD card after the latest update. I suggest you do a clean 4.4.2-2.4 install, including clearing all caches

SD card is still not modifiable after the latest OTA (2.4). Fresh install done and same issue.

Rooting + SD Fix still works.

This means that tegra note is still not use for me will need to look for how to downgrade to 4.3 as KitKat seems to be nothing but problems. I was really hoping for file manager to be embedded into ROM (which would mitigate the issue -not resolve it) but it doesn't

If you have tried root + SD card write fixes already, maybe the following thread will be of some help to you?

There are also apps on google play that can fix the kitkat SD card issue.

No I haven't tried to root my device. Simply not really into this. I like my device to be useful right out of the box. And this was. It was my favourite tablet and it was working great as i wanted it but has been totally broken by KitKat and Google restriction.
Does downgrading to 4.3 require root? Will it void my guarantee?

Also the problem that I have what should be my next device? Since android is broken now, apple in my opinion has too many restrictions and its not worth it's price, Microsoft tablets are still too rough on the edges and lack of touch friendly apps. Aaaaah I'm doomed ;( nothing on the horizon to dream for ...
