See messages in description or below fro Coderus.
Also, the last system update allow access to sd card, that mean you don't need it anymore.

DO NOT USE this application with BTRFS formatted sd card. It will not work and after you will remove this application all your data from sdcard and android storage will be deleted!

Probably because your sd card is not btrfs formatted...

@Schturman I really don't know. My sdcard is fat32 and it works perfectly with all my Android Apps, but I don't use WA for Android atm. Just a guess: Problem with user permissions? 

Schturman's picture

Don't think, the script put the same permission like on other android files. For me only MXPlayer can see my sd card.

Moth's picture

Yeah true, it's shown mounted as -rw but i can't save anything to sd for example (and it has never been different afaik); so it seems to be mounted as read only, actually. :-(

Maybe WA uses a different approach to access the fs and simply fails with that?

Schturman's picture

Maybe, don't know...

Works perfect for me! Thank you very much for this app! Great!!!

Is it possible with this solution, to install/place maps downloaded with Sygic to the SD-card? I have license for the complete world, but it's 10+ GB and I don't want to pollute the internal memory with that :s

Don't know.. Try to put them to sdcard and see if it can work from your app.

unfortunately, after installation this application android apps still don't see images and videos from native camera app (I have symbolic links to save them on sdcard). what can I do to resolve the problem? thanks

Schturman's picture

after last system update, android apps should see your /home/nemo directories without any modifications...
are your sd card is btrfs formated card ?

Total commander sees photos and videos on sdcard and even opens them in android gallery. But whatsapp, for example, doesn't. I can send photo from total commader to whatsapp, but it isn't comfortable.

My sd card has ext2 format. Should I reformat it?

Schturman's picture

Sorry, really don't know. I use fat formated and all work for me..
