Is there a way to disable media scan on KitKat? I have a rooted Sony Z3 with an external microsd card. I know there was an app for Gingebread, but I understand it's not compatible with Android 4+. I understand it used to be common to place a .nomedia empty file in folders not to be scanned, but is this still possible/does it still work now that Kitkat has made it harder to write to external SD cards? I am asking the question because android.process.media is draining my battery. I use poweramp as a music app and I have disabled background scanning, but something else must be triggering it. Thanks!
