Hi all at XDA, hope you are all having a great day.
Has anyone had any success with getting tomtom gps navigation program to run with the maps stored on the microsd card?,
I have tried to achieve this with a custom rom, tried eXistenZ Ultimate no joy, then I even tried loading stock ROM and just rooting then Xposed framework with HandleExternalStorage module still no joy?
Some stuff with exposed frameworks works, but not tomtom for some reason.
Any help much appreciated guys.

Hi Geeks Empire and ghostofcain.
Just finished testing folder mount and no luck?, it wouldn't may be that I am rooted with a locked bootloader? its the only thing i can think of.
Tried all the stuff except Edit platform.xml from here no joy http://technofaq.org/posts/2014/04/f...ndroid-kitkat/, couldent edit my platform.xml with file explorer for some reason, maybe that's the cause of all my grief...
