If you have Titanium Backup installed on your previous version, doing a non-wipe install could stop the process of Titanium Backup. You might receive a pop-up notification that Titanium Backup has stopped working (ForceClose). Reinstalling the app might lead to an "insufficient storage" error — when an app is uninstalled or modified, it leaves a .odex residue file which causes the error. So all you have to do is delete the .odex file of Titanium Backup in the system.

I shall not be held responsible for any damage to your device if you had chosen to follow the steps below. Cheers!! ;)

Here's how to do it:
## Make sure your phone is rooted. :good:
1- Use any file explorer like Root Explorer or ES File Explorer, etc.
2- go to /data/app,
3- find and delete "com.kermidas.TitaniumBackup-1.odex".
4- Now you can install Titanium Backup again!

Another Solution:
If deleting ODEX files does not work, or there are none. Try the following:

1. In TitaniumBackup press menu, then press preferences under the general section.
2. Next, under backup protection settings, press backup folder location.
3. When the new menu appears, press back to get to a file browser. It should say something like /storage/emulated/0 for the path.
4. Press back again and then select legacy, so the path is now /storage/emulated/legacy
5. Then scroll to your TitaniumBackup folder and select it.
6. Then press use the current folder, and press yes when the popup appears.

Then try doing your normal backup procedure.

I've had this problem for days now on my HTC One and it has been doing my head in. Found a similar solution in the galaxy S4 forums, so thought I would share as this solved it for me.

Useful feedback:
If you have done like me, and tried deleting ODEX files, changing path of folder to /legacy and trying reinstall and still get insufficient free space, then changing file location back to emulated/0...should solve the problem..

OH BTW i'm running PA 3.99 RC-2 with franco's r184.. so if your running earlier versions of those, you may need to stick with emulated/legacy.. all in all, try both paths and which ever works for you is where your power lies ;)

Hit THANKS if this helped. :good:

I tried many ways, and I found this will actually work.
open /system/etc/permissions look for the file name : platform.xml

open it and find this:
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />

add this:
<group gid="media_rw" />


it will become:

<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />

Then, make sure you uninstall the Titanium app, and reinstall. Then it will work!
Not only for Titanium, even for any other app cannot download to the sd card, it will work as well.


hmmm it seems bootlop on my s7 edge... am i missing something

I found a solution that works for me. Found on Reddit.
Go to Menu-Preferences-Backup Folder Location.
At the top it says "Storage Provide." Click on it and then click on DocumentProvider Storage.
Find your external card and map the folder you want to use.
That did it for me.
After a lot of search......
Perfect, Thanks

    A possible Solution

    A possible Solution: From SuperSU settings, Uncheck "Mount namespace separation"

    Tibu tried to warn me that this might not be compatible, but as always I ignored all pop-ups without reading them first. Only noticed this after I re-installed TB for the 5th time. Spend a day and a Half trying all sorts of solutions. Serves me right :crying:

    SOLVED for SGS4 4.4 w/root ext SD card

    So I was having this same problem but the aforementioned fixes didn't address the external SD card. I figured out that the error message is a bit misleading and that the actual problem was that the backup storage location wasn't writable by TiBU. searching on that issue I found the below post and modified the platform.XML file using root explorer. The original platform.xml on my phone looked a bit different than bleez99's. This is how I changed the file:

    Before mod:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_r" />
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    </permission>

    After Mod:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>

    A reboot is required for changes to take effect.

    All credit to bleez99 for this fix. If this helps you please thank his post below.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=44370296&postcount=357
    I have a fix. I did a little research and found that you can edit /etc/permissions/platform.xml and add a group to WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

    Original:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    </permission>

    Add the media_rw group:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>

    Done. Doing a TiBU right now to my external card.
    This _may_ fix other apps that have issues writing to the card, I personally didn't find any.

    Suggest that you do an adb pull of the file for safekeeping before doing this.
    If you pull the file, edit it, and push it back make sure the permissions are set to 644.

    Thanks to everyone who made this "OTA" happen.
    I was able to do a no wipe update to MH1 :)

    edit:
    For those worried about moding system files I haven't seen any adverse side effects from this mod. This might be anecdotal but I figure if anything does go screwy I(or you) can always change the file back in 2 min.
