When I bought Samsung Glaxy Core II, and tried to use an app which required external sdcard, I saw that apps can't write to external sdcard. Also many times when I mess up my device and do not have any rom backup, I flashed my phone with stock rom and faced the same problem. I know this problem can be fixed by using apps available on playstore. But since it seems none more than a hassle to me. I made this task simpler by fixing the permission.xml file manually and making a flashable zip. So, I am sharing it with all users of Samsung Galaxy Core II (SM-G355H). I don't know if it would fix other variants of this phone. So, you can backup your phone using CWM or TWRP first and try it out. If your phone dies, blasts, fire back at you, shoots lasers beams, transforms into terminator or transformer, tries to kill bill or turns into a super sayian, you can restore the phone using that backup. :laugh:

NOTE: USE ONLY WITH STOCK ROM!

Nice work!
But pls make it works with custom rom :D
You won't need this fix with custom rom, as there is no sdcard bug in custom roms. But if you find the bug in custom roms (which are based on stock rom for ex. NOT CM, PAC, FIUI etc.) you can backup your device and use this fix.?
