Android 7.1.1 AOSP + Root: LineageOS / crDroid


I'd like to set "default directories" to folders on my external microSD and a subfolder structure:

MyFiles/locus/mapsOnline

Myfiles/locus/maps

...


When trying to set that there is a warning popping up "READ ONLY".


Why is that not possible? How can i make it possible?

I have other apps writing to the microSD without issues.

Hi nicky,


Locus needs full writing and reading permissions for its full functioning which is not possible on external SD card since Android 4.4.2. More info: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:use_sdcard_on_kitkat
