Android - Workaround for Android 4.4 not being able to write to SD cards?
Found an answer to my own question! Might as well share how I did it (DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK, it worked fine for me). Needs root obviously.
- Using a root-enabled file manager, navigate to
- Edit platform.xml and find the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.
- Add an additional group definition for this permission...
<group gid="media_rw" />
- Save the changes to the file.
