I suddenly have a weird problem with the Android phone running version Android 4.2.2. I never rooted the phone but suddenly the app ES File Explorer is not able to access
/storage/emulated/legacy which it did earlier. This contains my photos, videos and the likes. Even some of the apps are beginning to crash when I try to open them. I cannot even connect to Wi-Fi. I can only call and read/send SMS.
I tried using ADB to access the file system. See the result of
ls -l on
shell@G20:/storage/emulated $ ls -l ls -l lrwxrwxrwx root root 2015-09-01 03:41 0 -> /mnt/shell/emulated/0 lrwxrwxrwx root root 2015-09-01 03:41 legacy -> /mnt/shell/emulated/0
And if I follow the
/mnt/shell/emulated/0 symlink, the following is the actual permission,
shell@G20:/mnt/shell/emulated $ ls -l ls -l drwxrwx--x root sdcard_r 2015-09-01 19:53 0 drwxrwx--x root sdcard_r 2037-12-31 05:31 legacy drwxrwx--x root sdcard_r 2015-08-20 12:45 obb
I'm wondering how might have this happened. I never rooted my phone and is still under warranty so, I cannot root. Hence, solution without rooting will be highly appreciated.
