    Wouldn't work for me...as soon as you select sdcard the r/o r/w option vanishes, and if you try changing the permissions for the sdcard it crashes root explorer.... anybody else get different results?

    what permissions are you changing ? just click on Mount R/W if it vanishes then you are rooted as Read/Write and you can manipulate data on sd card , if you re click you are mounting it again to Read only

    so the option to set read only or read write vanishes when you select SDCARD...you cannot select it, it is not there. .The only other option is to go to the PERMISSIONS tab but if you de-select 'write' it crashes 'root explorer'.

    You can set r/o and r/w for the root and some other folders, but SDCARD is not one of them.

    ummm..ok. well it doesn't work on v2.17.2, which is the latest release. Maybe it's something to do with the firmware version, Tim did alter the SDCARD mapping in his firmwares, perhaps that has affected the way root explorer addresses the card memory.

    I think it has something to do with the cheap stock sd cards from china,
    I replaced mine with a new16 gb PNY sd card and have not had a problem since.

    how did you partition the internal SD CARD tho ? btw my 8gb SD CARD is functioning perfectly but might look for upgrading the internal memory

    The flashing process partitions the internal card automatically.
