Default Help with m8 writing to anything

I got a an m8 yesterday and got it fully permarooted, loving it so far, flashed the GPE Rom and it runs great.

But....

Neither stock or roms seem to have correct permissions. Stock Rom won't allow me to open sqlite db in settings to unhide the power saving mode, it won't allow me to fix permissions, and it won't allow me to delete files from my external card, only internal. I thought it was Rom related but when I flashed gpe it wouldn't allow me to delete pictures through the gallery.

What is going on with this thing?

EDIT Skyfall claims to have fixed the sdcard and system read write issue. Flashing now
