    Default Help with permission error.

    I have a rooted note 3 running a custom ROM called Sweet (I think) my issue is I have an issue where apps can't write to the internal storage.

    I've searched around and people mentioned adding a line to platform.xml, I done this but there's no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Also, the app BlockLauncher can't run scripts due to Knox, is there anyway around this?

    I posted in XDA but they don't seem to care unless you're a dev!

    Thanks.

    What version of Android, and where are the apps writing data?

    4.4.2 KitKit, and I was simply trying to rename a file within /sdcard/Download, but no Apps will do it.

    I don't have an SDCard in just internal storage, so the external_write suggestion I've seen doesn't apply, right?

    Has that ROM let apps write correctly before?

    I'm not sure it did, I'm pretty new to Android (recently switched from iOS) so I'm still getting to grips with rooting.

    I don't think it let me after installing the ROM, but as far I can remember it did work before.

    I've finally got everything set up perfect, looks like I'll be switching ROMS.

    I just installed a completely different ROM and still getting the same problem :-( nothing can write to storage/emulated/0/

    Is stock firmware for BTU Note 3 4.4.2 available anywhere? UK version that is.

    What is the model number of your note? Do you want to go back to stock?

    I'm pretty sure it's the SM-N9005 International (UK) Unlocked/Unbranded, I don't think 4.4.2 Stock Firmware is out yet.
