Running a rooted Galaxy S2 with ICS XXLP2 official leaked rooted build. I have a 32GB microSD card mounted at /sdcard/external_sd in addition to the 16 GB internal storage. I'm unable to copy files to it now, it says write error or permission error. I use a terminal emulator to create a file
and this works fine. If I use a file manager (ES File Explorer, which supports browsing / on rooted devices), I can't copy files from internal storage to the external SD card. Also, earlier I used the external card as the camera photo storage location, now I can't do so and the camera defaults to internal storage (which is low on space).
If I do an ls -l of both sdcard and external_sd, I see the difference - sdcard has all files listed as belonging to sdcard_r, while external sd lists them as '1023'. So is this a leftover UID from a previous ROM install?
I'm scared to do
chown -R sdcard_r:system /sdcard/external_sd
Is that the way to go about it..or is there any other way to fix permissions?
