    For some reason I have to put rom zips in Twrp folder or Twrp can't find them. If I leave in download folder Twrp won't see them.

    Anyone else have this issue or solution to this issue?

    That's just the initial starting directory; you browse to wherever you want and TWRP will remember your last location.

    I can browse to wherever. Just can't see files.

    To be more clear I browse to /sdcard and there are no sub files. I put rom in /sdcard/download but I can't get to it.

    Externally I can get to download directory but my zip don't show up when I put it there.

    I have to put zip in Twrp backup folder to be able to see it.

    Any ideas?

    Mine does the same thing; I have no idea why. I just use /mnt/extSdCard/Install for all sources; this leverages my external SD card space and I always format internal storage when I change ROMs/rebuild anyway.

    Cool thanks. I was worried I had a problem with memory going bad or something.

    Current TWRP can't install zips from the internal sd card. Can do everything else, afaik.

    sounds like another reason to use CWM :p

    not to mention CWM is being tested...with touch support

    Which means CWM is behind the power-curve! :p

    Does CWM compress?

    So that's a 'no'. :rolleyes: ;)

    Can't wipe if your zips are in internal storage!
