GPIO without root privileges - suggested rules approach does not work

I have read all other GPIO related discussions and the closest one for me is the closed discussion @ unfortunately the suggestion does not work and the tar file is not usable...
I can access the GPIOs when I run a python script in sudo mode using mraa but I do not want to run my application in sudo as a product...
I created the 50-gpio.rules file manually and did adduser gpio stated in the link but still fails... what am I missing?
has anyone checked whether the proposed solution actually works as it mentions delay needed rules file to take effect (which I tried)...
