    Hi there, this is my first post about this great phone. The issue that im having it seems to trouble a lot of people out there, but i couldnt find a solution yet.

    I have custom rooted Omega rom with android 4.1.2 and the problem is my external sd card (16 gb) automatically at some point turns Read Only, which i can see and confirm when i connect by ssh and execute "mount" command.

    When i restart the phone the extSdCard is RW, just fine, i can create folders, copy files, whatever. Then suddenly and randomly a few minutes later it turns RO and i cant upload files anymore. Even when i use root file browsers.
    When i say suddenly is for example i am using airdroid and uploading several files to a folder in extsdcard, and when the app is processing the queue it fails at some point due to this issue.

    I have plenty of space in both the phone and the card.

    This is the output of mount command BEFORE the issue:

    /dev/block/vold/179:17 /storage/extSdCard vfat rw,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,no atime,nodiratime,uid=1000,gid=1023,fmask=0002,dmask=0002,allow_utime=0020,codepa ge=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,utf8,errors=remount-ro 0 0

    This is AFTER:

    /dev/block/vold/179:17 /storage/extSdCard vfat ro,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime,nodiratime,uid=1000,gid=1023,fmask=0002,dmask=0002,allow_utime=0020,codepage=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,utf8,errors=remount-ro 0 0

    The only thing i can notice is errors=remount-ro, maybe at some point it finds an error and remounts the storage as read only, i dont know.
    I dont have problems if you give me tech advices or links to read, i am an informatic engineer and work with these stuff a lot.

    Thanks in advance, great forum btw.
