    I would like to copy the root folders in / to my external SD card which is about 16GB. I have a Galaxy S3 mini and I can't copy the sys folder and some other folders like data in Root Explorer. It tried changing the permissions and mounting it as R/W but it still didn't work

    Could I use terminal or anything else?

    Use a backup tool instead.
