I noticed the same thing after update when couple of android apps stopped working. Any explanation for this?

Okay... I think it has something to do with this: How to let Android apps to write to (real) sdcard "UPDATE: the locations have changed again, additionally we have it fuse-mounted to ~/android_storage. The actual mount of the subvolume has to be done BEFORE alien-dalvik is running as it initiates fusing - new directory is /data/media" As the symolic links are right on the /data/media directory but doesn't work on ~/android_storage

i'm able to overcome this by creating link from /home/nemo .The problem is you need to create the link every time you restart your phone.So put the codes in .profile and invoke terminal once restarted

/home/nemo>cat .profile cd Videos unlink vid ln -fs ../and*/Movies ./vid cd ../Pictures unlink pics ln -fs ../android_storage/Pictures ./pics
