Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that supposed to be this way with Kitkat?

comment 16GB memory card, ive used 2GB and yet have 14GB of free space, how can i use that 14GB and why is it saying low of space on sd card???
I assume your device (name?) is rooted? How did you make your SDCard the "default storage"? I know it's possible on some devices to switch internal/external SDCard addressing, but I've never heard someone switching device-internal storage to SD.

comment ADB Push not keeping file permissions, specifically execute permission
Just wondering: How did you wipe /system without recovery? And how do you access the device now without a working recovery? As you wiped /system, the device wouldn't boot up into normal mode either.

comment Is there any way to Move applications in phone memory to SD Card?
I've just added the app2sd tag to your question. For some first aid, I recommend to read its tag-wiki first. That should get you started. If you're still stuck, please edit your question and describe what you've tried and where you're stuck, so we will see if we can help. If you solved it, please answer your question and let us know what exactly you did. Thanks a lot!

comment How do I use SD directiory
I cannot directory either :) How you walk directories very much depends on the app used. Not all of them give you direct access to the file system, but rely on the media library. If you place a media file on the SDCard, the media scanner should pick it up and update that library automatically. Maybe you could edit your question and add some more details, step by step, what you are trying? Then we might be able to give better advise.

comment Recording phone screen and playing the video file
What you call a "script" here actually is an ADB command that cannot work: adb shell just invokes a shell, without further parameters an interactive one. All you pass to it should be run on the device. But you didn't pass a command, but just a file name. So what shall be achieved here? Copying the file to your computer to play it there, or have the video played on the device?
