SD KitKat Fixer

SD KitKat Fixer


As of Android 4.4, "KitKat", Google has modified the default permissions for the external SD Card. Now it is accessible for writing only by a special user group of members called media_rw. Now apps cannot write to your removable sdcard. This app modifies a file to restore permissions to enable apps to write to removable storage.

The app requires root access to modify /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml. All it takes is one simple click of a button and all your apps will now be able to write to external storage again.

Does what it says.. What more can you ask? I tried others before this one but they didn't work... This one does and it's free :-D I should also add, it works on my Nexus 7 and my One M8 and my 2014 Moto G. I use rooted stock ROMs and this does the trick every time.
