Hello :)!
401005microsdcardicon66397.png

I am not responsible for any damage that may be caused to SD cards or broken phones.
Thanks for comprehension.


Introduction

Since the first version of the module "v9 Module - SD Write Access Enabler v1" was no longer compatible with Magisk v14, i have decided to update it for next versions of Magisk (stable & beta if possible).



Short explanations

On the latest versions of Android, it can be difficult to do what you want on MicroSD cards. :(

To overcome these new design and security rules (according to Google) and to be able to read and write again on our memory cards, it is necessary to modify a file in the system partition of the phone, and if necessary, to switch selinux in permissive mode (on some phones).

This module does this work, and therefore a new path is set up, which is as follows:


The new access path for our externals SDCards: /mnt/media_rw/SDCARDNUMBER/ :eek:


Since the v3.3 ZIP version, a feature has been added especially for Oreo (Android 8) users, on this Android version, several special permissions can be used by any app.
For exemple, theses specials permissions are used to get access to reading logs, managing the power of the device.


If you want to use this special feature, you just have to follow theses easy steps:
- creating a simple file named "ExSDCard_Oreo_apps" in the module path, so: /sbin/.core/img/ExSDCard/ExSDCard_Oreo_apps (remove any extension).
- Write all the apps package names that require a special permissions, one by line, for exemple:
Code:
com.google.android.youtube
com.snapchat.android
 org.mozilla.firefox


Changelog

v3.5
- The module has been updated with the last 17000 template version
- New module version pushed to the Module Repo (up-to-date in Download tab in the Manager)
- ZIP version is just changed from "3.4" to "3.5"
- Module base is unchanged
- OP simplified to be more clean




On your phones

09/01/2018:

- zip version is just changed from "v3.4" to "3.5", no more changes.

Hell, good old Link2SD don't work, M Trying but the APK is not... An NO APPS SD is no where better due to same issues with using the SD card for any actual data.....

Think this is not the module you're looking for, seems you want to install/move apps to sdcard, is that right? This module is not designed to do that, this one creates a new access path in /mnt/media_rw/ for external sd cards, this is needed for some apps to work with sd cards over usb otg, for example syncing specific folders or creating titanium backups directly on a pendrive.

Yep this is working, SM-G900P (Galaxy S5, Sprint/Virgin)
This IS something that I have been trying to figure out for some time now.
It did exactly as you said, (4 me, it made a path straight to the 2nd Partition, on the SD Card, formatted as Ext4, (I do have both Ubuntu/Win 10).

Titanium Backup folder. YES, been trying to figure what needs to be done. Pendrive or USB OTG.. Something to make it so much easier when wiping the phone, and starting with a new flash....
Thanks, I was able to find the path, which is working for TB, as we speak...
Thank you agian

No probs mate, I find this clever little module very helpful as well :D although all the props go to the dev @Rom for ressurecting this for us!
 
Yep, Thank you, ROM!!!
Wonderful module, is what android 6 an 7 really need!
Thank you.

Facts - sm-g900p on LineageOS 14, with Magisk 14.
Can say, on Magisk Manger, 14, at this time, they dont have this listed, just yet! But, flash and it is being supported by the magisk manager...
Awesome.
Thank you for bring this back to us on 7.... (Just not really happy with Android Nugat... Probably just me)

    Hello, the module on the Repo has been updated (by me) according to new module template and Magisk v19.


    In parrallel i continue to works on Pie compatibility.
    7
    New version is coming !

    Hello :eek:

    After a moment of waiting, here is a first phase of tests that will take place through the Telegram application, in the following group provided for this purpose so as not to clutter the subject with multiple tests if there must to have some !

    Overall, this new version brings some improvements, and support!

    The goal: to support a maximum of possibilities while taking at the same time the least time and at the same time the least possible material resources.
    About Oreo, a set of XML files, according to their uses and the needs of each one, will have to be placed at the end of the internal memory of your phone.

    On the main lines:
    - Some improvements to the changes made to the initial XML file
    - Oreo support:
    -- Special Oreo permissions support by XML files
    -- Sort process for apps declared in the XML config file
    - Added different XML files that can help depending on Android versions and ROMs

    Included in the next BETA version of the module:
    - Improved compatibility with LineageOS ROMs

    Oreo support in details:
    - the file "ExSDCard.config.txt" will have to be manually edited so that the script executed in the Magisk Service mode during the start of the phone, it contains the two lines allowing to indicate to the process of the module if one of the XML files " platform "needs to be put in place by Magisk
    - The files:
    -- "ExSDCard.O.applist.txt" will indicate to the initialization process of the module does Magisk for which package name the XML file (s) will have to be put in place
    -- "privapp-permissions-com.package.name.xml" will serve as an example for the other XML files to be created, each respective to each application mentioned in the previous file, this one will not have to be edited by the user

    About the "ExSDCard.O.applist.txt" file, all the names of the application packages you want to have their special Oreo-related permissions put on each line.

    Regarding the "ExSDCard.config.txt" file, if you want one of the two XML files (already edited) to be set up correctly, the respective values ​​must be either "yes" or "no", no Allowed capitalization, may be in the following BETA version, I have not looked into it yet. Attention, no return line (key Enter) should be omitted, it may not work properly the entire script.

    I think I have gone around.
    Here is the link of the Telegram group:
    https://t.me/exsdcard

    All the files as well as the zip of the module are deposited on the Telegram group as a free download.
    I take also the care of publish the files on XDA (see links above..).

    Please, it has been set up by me so as not to clutter the line of the original subject, the respect of each and everyone will be rigorous!

    !! Therefore !!
    - no injury whatsoever will be tolerated
    - no publication off topic
    - the help and suggestions of each and every one will be welcome, if requested by me, contact me directly in private on Tg
    - No liability related to external SD cards or even internal or even directly related to phones could be supported by myself or anyone else.

    Hoping that you like this new version, made by myself (and thanks to external help), imbly, on my free time, and without any donations requested, only by pure passion.

    (Yeah no checks or hundredths requested)

    And if i willn't have the time to say before: Merry Christmas @ all ! :eek:
    7
    v2.1 is coming !

    My new update is finish!
