Hi.

I am currently using MIUI 10 - 8.12.13 on Redmi 4 Prime.

I noticed a problem that every time I try to install a larger application from Google Play Store that uses obb folder, the install fails and I get an error 492.

I checked the logcat and an example of error is below:

Code:

So it seems that selinux is preventing access to the obb folder.

The problem was most probably also on previous MIUI 10 version, I just did not noticed it because I never downloaded apps that use obb files.

I also tried formatting the system partition and reinstalling MIUI but the problem is still present.

I searched the internet and only found similar problem on MIUI 9 where it was suggested that disabling "emluated sdcard optimization" under Developer options should fix similar problem. Unfortunately I cannot find this option under MIUI 10.

Not sure if this is indeed a MIUI bug or just specific to my device, but if anyone can give me any help or advice on how to resolve this problem, it would be really appreciated.

I have this problem too. I can't copy anything into the OBB folder whether with twrp, windows or es file explorer. I have found no solution
