With the Android 4.4 update (KitKat), Google brought a not-so-pleasant thing by revoking the write capability to external SD card by app on an Android device.

You can abilitate again only with root privileges. Use http://www.kingroot.net to get root on your mobile phone.

After gaining root, modify /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml file this way:

  • look for this entry: name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"
  • Now add the following string of code just after <group gid=”sdcard_rw”/>.:
<group gid="media_rw"/>
  • save and reboot
