    sd card path

    I rooted my thrive last night which worked well. However, I have a small problem. I backed up my app and data files using MyBackup Pro which put the backup files on my sd card. After putting Mybackup onto my thrive I tried to do a restore but the app wouldn't recognize the path. Does anyone have an idea how to write out the correct path?

    Thanks in advance

    Some apps will not find the SD cards unless you set the path to ..... /mnt/sdcard/xxxxx, x being the folder you want on the card. For the external card you need to put the path /mnt/sdcard2/xxxxx

    How do you change the path?

    What build where you on and what build do you have now? If the builds are the same, the mount points should be the same. However, there are issues with the group permissions needed to write to external storage. There is a fix for this if you are comfortable editing a system, file rights can be set to allow apps access. Again, depending on the build, the mount location may be different. Using a non-stock file manager, move up to the root level and look for mnt, below this you should the "folder" name for the external card. Hopefully you can access the menu of your app to specify /mnt/sdcard2 (or what ever the mnt folder is).
    Found my signature file, but it appears to be empty...
