Hello, folks

Recently I upgraded to Android Kitkat 4.4.2 (Indian Version) on my Samsung Galaxy Note II, I have come across a serious BUG after upgrading to Android 4.4.2.

BUG Details: Memory card cannot be read internally

For Instance while connected to Winscp via SSHDroid new folder cannot be created in Memory Card but at the same time new folder can be created in Phone Memory

I guess writing has been restricted

It's not over..... While downloading videos via YouTube Downloader 4.2 (Dentex) when custom folder chosen to memory card downloading gets failed

Again I guess writing has been restricted

I tried 3-4 different memory cards guessing problem might be in memory card (formatted as well)

Flashed my Note II via Hard Reset

Tried all ways and I have come to conclusion the BUG is in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat (Indian Version)

Kindly share if you have encountered same BUG as well (Specially Indian Consumers)

Regards,

Note II

It's not a bug, it is included in the Kitkat update for security purposes.
There is a fix for that but you have to be rooted.

What rom are you using?

You can simply transfer your files using a comupter...

Then paste it to your memory card..

That's what I did when I'm on Stock Kitkat ROM...

If you want to apply the SD Card fixed root your phone first.

Google chose to block write access, for third party apps (those not pre-installed), to external storage; except in their own directories.

There is currently a loophole which some developers have updated their apps to use, but with future iterations of android this will likely be blocked.

This change has been primarily to keep the sdcard clean; un-installing third party apps had left orphaned files the sdcard and resulted in a poor user experience. Personally I'm not sure how viable an explanation this is when you weigh it up against the affect to the user experience of preventing 3rd.P apps from accessing anything outside of their own granted space, or the space granted to a partner app. I think this is either google being evil, trying to lower the value of an sdcard slot to drive OEMs to make devices without one (for various profitable purposes) OR because google goofed on their first time really deciding what access they should have (previously there was no formal access rights definition, it was a free-for-all.)

Hold this space
