I suppose this is due to restricted directory permissions in Android /
CyanogenMod. You could check yourself, running "adb shell" from a shell
outside Emacs, and navigate there. It might be helpful to see the result
of the command "ls -a -l /storage/emulated/0/Texts/mathematics".

Btw, which Emacs / Tramp versions are you running? I remember there were
problems with the Tramp adb method and newer Android verions (say, 6+).
This was fixed in Emacs 26 / Tramp 2.3.

Best regards, Michael.
