sd card issueDo you happen to own a Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition? Then surely you would have followed news concerning this particular smartphone that the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update has been released for it sometime earlier this month, and life should be all peachy keen for you, don’t you think so? Apparently not, as there are some reports going around that select apps tend to fail to write to the external storage – that is, the memory card in your Galaxy S4 Google Edition after the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update was applied. Apparently, this has been speculated to be an issue which Samsung most probably did not catch before pushing out the update, meaning a fair number of apps (or so it has been reported) are unable to write any data to the memory card.

Those who have performed some investigations to it claim that it boils down to how Unix handles write permissions, and most of the apps out there have not been updated to adapt to such a change. An unofficial and temporary fix is available, although your Galaxy S4 Google Edition will need to be rooted before this particular issue is fixed. Hopefully Samsung or Google has an official solution in store for the masses, and soon, otherwise an angry mob will start to gather online!
