How to Write to External SD Card on Android Device after KitKat (v4.4) Without Rooting

May 14th, 2017 · No Comments · Computer Technology & Technical Support

  1. From Google Playstore, install X-Plore file manager app.
  2. Tap on “Disk Map” from within X-Plore app.
  3. Tap on “WiFi Server” from within X-Plore app. This will allow it to talk to your phone’s WiFi.
  4. Find the URL displayed in X-Plore “WiFi File Sharing”. (, where xxxx is set in WiFi server optionsĀ  within X-Plore).
  5. Enter that URL into Firefox browser on your laptop/desktop where the files are located.
  6. Open the External SD Card folder in the browser view and locate KitKat Sandbox. The full path is “/storage/extSdCard/Android/data/com.lonelycatgames.Xplore/files”
  7. Drag files or folders from your computer onto that folder.
  8. Next, open the phone’s native File Manager app.
  9. Now, select the folders in the Sandbox and Move them to another location on the External SD Card.

Thanks in part to MimiShell at which gave me the idea to look for the Sandbox.
