Context: I've now spent more than 6 hours reading all articles / possible solutions I can find about the ".nomedia" file bug of Android 4+. See bug report here or also here or possible solution here. In short : for users with more than 10k media files on their microSD card (i have a 128 gb µSD!), the phone will be very hot at boot during 20 minutes / overheat / high cpu usage / fast battery drain ! Reason : Android 4+ doesn't care correctly about the ".nomedia" file like it did in Android 2.3, and the media scanner tries to browse all the files!
I'm looking for a workaround for this problem. Question :
Is it possible to remount a specific folder
myfolder of my external SD card to
/mypersonalfolder/ and hide it from
Is it possible, after boot, to
chmod a specific folder from external SD card so that the media scanner won't be allowed to browse it?
I have a rooted Android 4.2.2
