Default sd card root directory?

Ok, this may sound like a stupid question, but where is the root directory on the thunderbolts sd card? I downloaded the mr2 update and renamed it, but I can't find a root folder on the sd card to move it to. There is one on the phone, but it won't let me move it there. I've tried adao file manager and astro.

Just move it to the card, no subfolder.

It's already on the card in the downloads folder. So just take it out of that folder right

In a linux (or unix in general) file system, root is the top of the hierarchy. So to say SD root is to say the topmost folder on the sdcard, which is just on the sd and not in a folder. your file path should be /mnt/sdcard/MyFile.filetype, where filetype is probably zip.

Now, I am going to say that if you did not know this, you probably should not be flashing things. I have said it before, but flashing/rooting without proper and thorough research is just dumb and not advisable.

Thanks for the explanation. That's what I was thinking, but wanted to make sure I was right.

Default Hey Nkk

How do you expect to learn? did you know exactly what you were doing when you first rooted your phone?
