    On a rooted 7042 installed a bunch of movies to the extsd card. No problem watching them...but when I tried to delete them through mxplayer or es file explorer I was unable to do so. Almost like they were write protected. When I plug the tablet in via usb to a desktop I was able to delete them through windows explorer. Any thoughts?

    Oh, I forgot about this bug.

    Here's a workaround/fix:

    -Use a root explorer to edit /system/etc/platform.xml

    -Find this section:
    Code:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
        <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    </permission>
    
    -Add this:
    Code:
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
        <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
        [COLOR=#ff0000][B]<group gid="media_rw" />[/B][/COLOR]
    </permission>
    
    -Save and reboot

    found it.. needed to switch to mount r/w

    didn;t work though.,. the first time i did when i rebooted the platform.xml was blank with 0 bits.. fortunately a backup was created. 2nd time, the file is there with the new entry but it still won't allow me to delete after a reboot

    another issue with the sd/extcard.. using ttorrent to d/l legal movies. i don't see a way to switch to extcard to save them. i imagine i may be able to use a file explorer to move them, but that sounds like a pain

    During all of this, my internet connection died so I restored the backup of the xml file... still no internet connection. shows the wifi is connected with full bars, but the bars are greyed out with an x.
