Open source does not mean that the source is included in the Android app. An APK files never contains the code in compiled form. Some time sit means that the source code can be downloaded somewhere on the net.

Almost 2 years later (because I forgot that this post even exists, sorry). A week after posting this question here, I ran some tests using h2testw. The microSD card turned out to be faulty.

Use free and open source software to ensure better privacy. I found Easer especially good. However, it does seem to require root permissions for this specific task. Download the F-Droid store and then install Easer. Once you have the app, open "Settings" from the app-drawer and tick "Use root features". Then go to "Settings" >...
