Google added a restriction limit on how apps interact with external storage from Android lollipop. If you have upgraded your Android version to 5 or later on Samsung, you should have encountered “failed to copy” or “permission needed” when copying files onto SD card.
I write this post to explain to you how I bypassed permission needed on my Samsung S4 running Android 5. My apps and game data were not able to be saved on my SD card, Downloaded files cannot be moved to SD card and so many related issues.
In order to grant permission access to read SD card to your device, it will require us to edit Android system file called “platform.xml“. This file contains permission access handlers (_rw, _r, _w) and other Android permissions. It is always required to make a backup of platform.xml before editing. We are going to edit two permissions;
Don’t be scared! It is very simple.
In this post, we will require the following ;

<permission name=”android.permission. WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE”>
<group gid=” sdcard_r “>
<group gid=” sdcard_rw”>
<group gid=” media_rw”>
