    To enable my mobile android 5.1 to move apps to sdcard, I inserted the code below.

    Any ideas if this change of code will enable apps to sdcard?

    I inserted the code below......

    My mobile is rooted
    1.Open “ES File Explorer” and press on the top left icon.
    2.Go to Tool > Root Explorer > Mount R/W
    3.Change Path “/” and “/system” from RO to RW.
    4.Go to Local > / Device > system > etc > permissions > and open platform.xml as text in “ES Note Editor”.
    Find the following line:
    “android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” permission
    Change it from :
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_r" />
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    to :
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_r" />
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    5.Save the changes to the file.
    6.Check the file again and make sure that everything is OK.
    7.Reboot your device to apply the changes.
    8.After rebooting you will be able to write on the external sdcard without any problem.

    The above changes does not appear to work or make any difference in Android 5.10 Mobile

    Open system settings - applications. Find the app you want to move and see if the option is available. Not all apps can be moved. The method you are trying to use requires root access on the device.
