XDA developers, Kejar, nor I are responsible for anything you do to your phone so as always use with care


For those of you using a custom kernel with Build EE4 to gain root and have run into the Write protection pop up when trying to transfer files to your sdcard.

sdcard patch:
  • simply download below
  • place on sdcard
  • and flash using clockwork


All credit to Kejar , so please remember to thank him

After first running this patch, the first time I plugged it in the usb storage option popped up, but then never came up again. I ended up having to go into Setting>USB Settings while the phone was unplugged and changing it to "Ask on Connection" and it works perfectly. When the "Mass Storage" Option is selected, Windows recognizes the phone as a cd rom. Thanks for all your work DroidXCon, Kejar, and everyone else.

I would suggest putting the file on the SDcard before you update or pull the sdcard out and use a micro USB card reader to put it on.

You can unmount the SDCard and push the file to the SDCard via adb. The SDCard is only read-only when it is mounted as mass storage. I have a feeling that this change is going to cause a few short-term issues with custom kernels at some point, but only time will tell.

imnuts, I know you are working on an update to your debloated ROM, likely built off of EE4, will you be using a custom kernel in yours or stock until we know if it will cause issues?

Aw man. I was kidding, dxc.

Sorry if I offended you.

For reals, I was just joking around. I guess it didn't come off that way.

My bad. Sorry.
