    Hi
    KitKat 4.4.2 stock ROM, rooted. Think I've cured problem by adding this to sys.text
    [debug]
    max_memory=400000000
    reserve_memory=15000000
    cache=2048

    Default SDFix: Modify device permissions to allow apps to write to MicroSD

    [APP][4.4][ROOT] SDFix: Modify device permissions to allow apps to write to MicroSDROOT ACCESS IS REQUIRED
    .A simple app which modifies KitKat devices to allow user-installed applications to write to the MicroSD card on devices with two storage locations. Background information on the underlying problem is available here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Please ensure you understand the problem and that your device has it before installing this app. This app is quite useless if your device doesn't suffer this issue. THIS IS A BETA RELEASE. WHILE I HAVE TESTED THIS ON MULTIPLE DEVICES MANY TIMES, PLEASE RESTRICT YOUR USE OF THIS APP TO DEVICES YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO REFLASH FROM SCRATCH. I do not expect this to occur, but this is release #1 of this app, and it modifies a configuration file as root. That said, my test devices still work even when I deliberately corrupted and deleted the target file in testing. This app is entirely free. It doesn't have any ads, (but it does have a few Play Store links on its final screen to my other free apps). 23u66x3 It will be going on the Play Store pending your feedback, but I wanted to post it here first. Please let me know if you encounter any issues.How it works: The /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml is modified to specify that all applications which have the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission are registered as members of the Android UNIX group "media_rw". Membership in this group is necessary to write to the MicroSD card. In Android 4.3, most all devices granted access to the media_rw group to apps. In Android 4.4, they do not. This app simply restores the old behavior. From what I've observed this method (granting permission via platform.xml), also appears to be the preferred means of restoring SD card access on XDA and elsewhere.This app is designed to abort if it sees absolutely anything that it does not expect. Please let me know if the app does not work for you, and what type of device/ROM/etc you're using. If the modification is unnecessary (due to media_rw access being already present) this app will make no modification.The original platform.xml will be backed up in /system/etc/permissions as "platform.xml.original-pre-sdfix" (unless that file already exists).

    Not necessary add 400MB RAM memory and 150MB reserve for iGO Primo app , cause it doesn't use more than 50-80MB , probably you have other sys problem on your phone OS, which slow other apps, cause no problems on Nexus 5, Stock ROM, rooted, it works well, without those command lines, cause with 2GB RAM memory that phone works well else... Check your OS, or do factory reset, clear cache, reinstall iGO Primo app, and that syptoms will dissapear probably, or live with these command lines...

    I am using Galaxy S4 I9505, Kitkat 4.4.2, not rooted.

    Every time I start iGO I have to do the initial wizard again.
    This is when installing iGO_Israel_9.6.29.390522_crk_sys_not_changed.apk
    There is no sys.txt and none is created.

    When I install iGO_Israel_9.6.29.390522_crk_sys_changed.apk I get this error message on startup:
    Missing or incomplete folder: /data/data/com.nng.igoprimoisr2013march27.javaclient/sys.txt: open failed: EACCES (permission denied)

    Then I installed on Internal memory instead of external memory and it works fine. No problems at all.
    Also there is a sys.txt file now.

    Uninstalled, moved to External SD card, tried again, still same issue.
    However, when I install the sys_not_changed.apk and use the sys.txt that was created when I installed it on Internal memory, it crashes: "iGo stopped working".
    Removing sys.txt solves that problem but again I have to do the wizard every time I start iGo.

    This is due to the change Google made in the Kitkat update. Android 4.4 KitKat removes your ability to write files to the MicroSD card.
    So the "Save" folder cannot be created.
    If you are rooted, you can simply fix this by reverting the change that Google made. You can use this free app to automate the process:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Doing so, iGO will work as on Jelly Bean (didn't test it myself but this should work as it is the only logical explanation for these issues)

    What I don't understand is why some people don't have these problems?

    I don't want to root my device only for this. That's why I will try to install the APK on the internal memory and edit the sys.txt file to point to the ExternalSD for the maps.
    Something like this should work I think:
    Install iGO on Internal storage as you would do on external but only with one map (to speed up copying later on).
    Everything should work.
    Create a folder on the ExternalSD (e.g. "iGO") and move the "content" folder from internal memory to the iGO folder on the externalSD.
    I'll try to edit the sys.txt to change the folder where it points for the content folder.
    Something like this:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    This way the most data will still be on the ExternalSD and I'll have enough free space on the Internal Storage.
    I have an SD card of 32GB and want to make use of it!


    Not sure if this will work but I'll try when I get home

    If you like to add map, poi and building on SD you must add this in sys:

    has_secondary_root=1
    android_secondary_root_path="/storage/extSdCard/addons"

    Then in folder addons create folder content and inside folders: poi, map, building and add files inside.

    Yes, it's possible on KitKat OS, for previous And OSs wasn't possible, but owith appropriate apk, modified for immersive mode, so who want full screen mode from edge to edge of screen, need to modify actual release for this mode, latest release was modified by atego177 for 31.1.2014 iGO Primo ISR release.

    @ dinci
    Did it work out as planned/hoped? I have i9195-LTE (S4mini) and am expecting KitKat next month. So to be prepared, I would like to know.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    or for rooted phones, use sdfix, to be able use iGO folder on sd card.
