I have a rooted Galaxy S7. I'd like to give permission to an app that does not request it to write to the external SD card storage. How can I do this?

  • did you try: pm grant command? – esQmo_ Mar 9 '19 at 21:01

If you know the app package name, you can try the shell command pm grant.

Enable USB Debugging, probably already done for you, then type adb shell pm grant [replace_app.package.name] android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE hit enter. Your app should now have that permission. Not sure if permanently though.
