How to Fix SDcard Issue on KitKat

Today I'm going to show you How to Fix SDcard Issue on KitKat/Android 4.4+. Android KitKat & lollipop brought very few interesting new features.I really appreciated some of them...and othes not so much. For example, One feature that not everyone(including me) is crazy about is the way SD Cards are now handled on Android devices, as user-installed applications are no longer allowed to external storage by default.


Let's see the step to fix this.

 (Note: Root is primary key for this tricks to work. If your Phone isn't rooted, then check out Here How to Root)

  • Step 1: Download a file manager from Play-Store which have enabled "Root Access rights".I'll Suggest "Root Browser" or "Es Explorer" Then open the apps & give it the Root permission. I'm using "ES explorar Pro" which already have the root access.

  • Step 2: Go the /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml  this directory


NOTE:These are XML sections, so You need to make them exactly like strings Below:

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

Save the platform.xml file. It’s necessary to set the permission to 644 (RW-/R-/R-) before you restart your device

Now reboot you phone


You have now full access over you phone External Storage.
