Most Apps can't write to SD card on new phone
1.) Model Number Bird/Star V1277
2.) Firmware Version 4.0.4
3.) Baseband Version MAUI.11AMD.W12.22SP.V7
4.) Kernel Version 3.0.13
5.) Build Number 1009T_121108_OV5647_ICSV1.3_VO8_COM_EN
I have a BIRD V1277 ( Google-plays name ) or Star running ICS .I bought it on amazon with the title Android 4.0 MTK6577 Dual Core 1.0GHz direct from china .
I've had this phone for a few weeks and I've been very happy with it up until now .Recently I installed a Satnav app that I like to use.But the apps says I do not have enough space on my phone to install a offline map that I use . Basically the app isn't installing the maps on the SD card, like it did on my previous phone running Ginger-bread .,instead trying to install it on the phones internal memory.
This seems to be the case with most of my apps .Though the android cam/video stores it's data to the sd card .
I've read about a similar problem with a another android phone.So is this a phone specific issue or what ?
Any help appreciated .
