Hello, I've recently moved on from iOS and embraced android with the Sony Xperia Z2. I've unlocked the boot loader and successfully rooted the device and everything is A-OKAY. However, no matter what I do, I cannot install APK's to the SD card at all. When I switch installer default location to SD card, everytime, I receive the error "Cannot Install XXX Because there is no free space". When I revert to internal, everything works. I'm not sure whether what I'm trying to do is possible, if so please inform me. Anyways, here are the steps I've completed already (all of which did nothing, I'm afraid).

1. Installed and Used, SDFIX from GPlay store (Success message)
2. Edited platform.xml in systems/permissions/ to include new permissions (no change what soever)
3. Formatted the SD card, there and back again, from fat32 to exfat (no change whatsoever)

Apologies for the long message but I am truly at my wits end. All I want to naturally install apps directly on my SD card. I'm new to the world of Android so please be patient.

Edit: Currently attempting the Foldermount option
