So I went into the files system to look into it to try to find anything suspicious that is bugging out the ext_sd.
I found that the platform.xml have some external sd writable properties I see that is missing a line so apps can write to the external_sd
Here is the fix;
- Get or Download Root Explorer app or any File Manager with ROOT access from the PlayStore to be able to access the system files.
- Locate the platform.xml file in the system/etc/permissions folder.
- Create a backup of the original file before you go any further in case you need to revert back.
- Either open this file up on your phone or copy it to your PC for editing with Notepad++.
- At the file open, scroll down until you find a row beginning name=”android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” >, I believe is on line 71 in the file.
- On a new line under lines” and “, you need to add , and save the file.
- Just make sure you keep the line right below the other ones like shown in the picture below for organize purposes.
It should loom like this
<permission name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" > <group gid="sdcard_r" /> </permission> <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" > <group gid="sdcard_r" /> <group gid="sdcard_rw" /> <group gid="media_rw" /> </permission> <permission name="android.permission.ACCESS_ALL_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" > <group gid="sdcard_r" /> <group gid="sdcard_rw" /> <group gid="sdcard_all" /> </permission> <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE" > <group gid="media_rw" /> </permission>
Done, save the changes, or copy the file back from your PC, and overwrite the original version.
Reboot your phone and the fix will be applied.
This Method should work on any device except for the already edited file attached.
If this have help in any way please a Thank and a credit will be great
