    I have a Moto G7+ that has been rooted for years with no problems and I have been chasing a solution to the problem of when trying to rename/copy a file on my SD card, it would tell me that I needed permission to access it. After researching this problem, I found a solution to edit the platform.xml (in system\etc\permissions) and add an entry for external storage. I also deleted two downloaded instances of majisk.zip, which I don’t think did anything.

    A couple of days later, I restarted my phone and it booted up until it displayed the “unlock for all features and data” screen and then it reboots to TWRP. In TWRP, if I go to MOUNT, the system partition is never checked. If I check it and restart the phone, system is always unchecked. I noticed on my backup G5 phone that the system partition isn’t checked, so this probably isn’t a factor. When I go into RESTORE, I have several restore points, but instead of date, they all have long random alpha-numeric names.

    If I select enable MTP under MOUNT, I can access my phone on my computer through file explorer. All of the files and folders in internal storage have been renamed to random 20+ character alpha-numeric names. I’ve been looking through the forums and I haven’t found any mention of this type of shenanigans.

    Hi welcome to AC!
    Your best bet would check XDA Forums as they more for rooting and mods .
