    I am trying to get into /root/???? subdirectories ...

    or where paid apps are stored ... and where the default apps are stored ...

    I was able to run your backupapps.sh .... so root cmd sh does work

    Thanks ...

    so if I run terminal ...

    su
    # cp -R /data/app /sdcard/DL_Apps

    and...

    # cp -R /data/app-private /sdcard/DL_Apps

    should give me all the downloaded apps in the "/sdcard/sdcard/DL_Apps directory ?

    BTW: Is there a file manager that takes advantage of rooted_OS ?
