I have recently downloaded cm 13 and flashed it on Nexus 4. Since then none of my applications can download any files. Google apps can do that though.

I have tried to capture the relevant debug info from adb:

Any possible fix?

Edit: Similar problems(practically the same errors) exist on CM 12.1 latest snapshot and Slimkat (4.4 builds). As for the slimkat build, it has been used for over a year with no problem. Now it happens out of the blue.

    Yes - contact the developer or get on a stable build :) Not much to do here for us - check Recommendation for questions pertaining to a problem specific to a nightly build of a ROM – benjamin Mar 23 '16 at 7:02
  • I have actually tried installing other aosp roms and they seems to have the same problem on my nexus. What confusing is though, downloading worked on the same build previously and now it breaks down all of a sudden. I have completely no idea how to even trace what caused this permission problem. – Chung Lun Yuen Mar 23 '16 at 7:10
  • That's the risk of nightly build; you won't know what will break/be fixed. However, you said that it also happened on other AOSP ROMs, could you edit and put some details? IMHO, this post is considerably better than what we usually received related to nightly build. However, there's no guarantee that we can help solving this issue as end-user. – Andrew T.

  • Edited as to the request of @AndrewT. – Chung Lun Yuen Mar 23 '16 at 7:39
  • Reading from the LogCat, I found AOSP Issue Tracker #195153 that says "Apps that use the DownloadManager, targetSdkVersion <23, and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE will experience this problem.". Can you try to download using Chrome, or FireFox? Or else, may I know what apps are you using to download? – Andrew T. Mar 23 '16 at 7:46

It turns out that I used root to copy files onto the SD card directory (/storage/emulated/0), locking out non-root users.

chown -R media_rw:media_rw /sdcard/* in recovery fixed the problem. (Note that sdcard mount point can be different in different recoveries. I use TWRP)

Silly me :P

  • If this is the final answer, make sure to mark it as the accepted one and therefore close the thread :) – Joe Mar 23 '16 at 11:34

chown -R 1023:1023 /sdcard is even shorter

I would also give chmod -R 770 /sdcard for completeness
