How To Make It Save On Sd Card In 4.4

Recommended Posts

I fixed the similar problem with btsync by pointing to it's dir on Sdcard/Android/btcyncblabla

but there is no such dir for bittorrent

 

so how do we save to the sdcard directly?

 

 

p.s.

this 4.4 update is really annoying

yeah just reinstalled it

it doesn't created it's own folder in Android/data on the sdcard

so where to save the torrents so it actually allows it to write?

If you're willing to root your device, you can use the Xposed module HandleExternalStorage. I preferred flashing a different 4.4.2 ROM that doesn't have the external storage limitation.

Don't want to root it just for that.

Bittorrent should have a dir on the SD card where it can write. The question is what should be the name of that dir, since it doesn't create one for itself and com.bittorrent doesn't work :)

sdcard/Android/com.bittorrent.sync

or something like that is the dir you need to use.

 

 

Yes, that's the dir that worked for BIttorrent SYnc, but here i was asking about Bittorrent app (I believe i startes this thread in the bittorrent sub-forum)

@Firon: I don't get the point. Why don't you have write access with the android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission? The android API documentation says, that it should work...

 

http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html

As of March, 2011, applications have to belong to the media_rw group to modify the contents of an SD card. To gain access to this group, a permission called WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE was added. See:
