SM-T705, cf-autoroot (incl. SuperSU) checked with root-checker, platform.xml adapted

e.g. if I want to copy /dev to my sdcard ... there comes a message similar to "copying went wrong ... 4.4+ .... in non-root mode some limitations ..."

Sorry I searched and read a lot of older suggestions but did not get a clue ... and I know about the kitkat probs regarding SD (platform.xml). But still dont understand, why there are just few folders affected ...

So sorry but it seem I need a Little push into the right direction

+1 solid explorer has struggled for me, but root explorer hasn't. Seems to be only certain directories. ...idk

just to make shure - we are talking about Root Explorer (File Manager) non free app. Did you try to copy System dirs like /dev ??

if yes, where to did you copy them. I just figured out that my ext3 partition (1st=exFat, 2nd=ext3) on the SD is mounted to /data/sdext2.

but copying /dev to /data/sdext2 doesnt work either

some folder cant be copy. the only way for you to have those are extracting it from the original firmware.

THX - 2 Pprobs now

1
mount -o remount rw /System worked, but still
root@klimtlte:/ # mkdir /mnt/extSD2
mkdir failed for /mnt/extSD2, Read-only file System

a) with Root Explorer it seemed to work, but was gone after restart ?

b) where to mount my ext3 SDcard partition (1st exfat, 2nd ext3)

c) can I do it by modifying init.rc, universal5420.rc or fstab.goldfish ...

2 how to extract Folders from Firmware files like T705XXU1ANF7_T705DBT1ANF1_T705XXU1ANF7_HOME.tar
I extracted the files within. But how can I Mount those Image files on W8 (ext2fs does not work with my sdcard) ?
2nd best would be to go to my Linux PC (but I'm a Linux DAU) ...

sorry my english is not good enough ... kitchen seems to be a Linux tool ... this seems to be a good start http://www.modaco.com/topic/366230-t...for-tinkerers/ or this http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/
Best use OSFMount to Mount the *.img and "Paragon ExtFS for Windows" to view the files
