Hello all!

Simple: This module allows your favorite app to save files (write) to your external SD card in Marshmallow.


Download from Play Store:

Note: The app works as such for Nougat too. Let me know if you face any issue.

If you have issues, try this fix:

However since i was using the systemless xposed with magisk i thought of trying a magisk module to set selinux as permissive rather than enforcing before xposed itself is loaded up, and then this module worked a treat! Trying to set selinux as permissive via an app after booting wasn't successful in this regard !

Now I'm on nougat with the LG v20 and tested this module out again after setting selinux as permissive with that magisk module and it again worked! I honestly believe that that is the simple fix for a lot of people who complained about various issues with this module. Here is the magisk module:

See attachments.

  • Download and install module.
  • Enable in Xposed Installer.
  • Choose your apps which require write access.
  • Reboot!

App updates will not disturb this configuration, unless the developer changes the package name (rarely happens. If so, follow the 4 steps again).

Example - Titanium Backup can now backup to my external SD card.

Example - Titanium Backup

Tested on CM13. Should work on all Marshmallow devices.

Try it out and let me know if there's any bug.
This app is ad-supported. Bear with me (only bottom banner - no overlay/full screen ****).

Xposed repo:

rovo89 for the awesome Xposed framework
C3C076 for GravityBox module


Try if this doesn't work on few apps.

Titanium Backup not asking for Sdcard excess, instead they used Document Provider Storage Option. Whichi is very slow specially when u have more than 4 gb backup files.
But using this module we can select native file system storage of Titanium backup. Which make backup & restore very quick.

For those apps which doent have external storage, should try two xposed module. XinternalSD and Marshmallow SD Fix.
Like Whatsapp, Tubemate, ADM, Viper4Android etc.

I haven't used Opera.....just check the Opera settings and try changing the location. I tried with UC browser and it works. I'll try with opera maybe.

Tried it in my SGS5 CM 13 nighlty 20160614 version. Followed your guide but it doesn't work. The xposed module says that your module has an update 1.0 - 1.0. Tried to reinstall but still doesn't work.

I just installed the version from this thread and it works pretty good on my galaxy Tab S2. I tested it with "All that recorder" and I am able to record on the external sdcard again. Thanks very much!

Works perfectly on RR, I only notived two little UI issues: The apps in the list are completely random, please sort them alphabetically and the list reloads when you tick an app.

It's possible to automatic add an app? I don't want to choose every app I install... Need a sort of automatic add every app installed.
