I have a question that wasn't answered in this FAQ. I was hoping someone could shed some light on the issue, then the OP could update the post to help others...
Basically, on my last Android phone my nandroid backups were all located on my SD card, under clockworkmod/backups. Now, they are located under mnt/shell/emulated.
I am new to emulated partitions and don't really get what is going on. I seem to be able to access various contents of my SD from the following directories:
This is new in Jelly Bean. Not sure why Google changed it. That said, they are all symlinks for compatibility with various apps. You data is actually stored in /data/media/0. This is your "sdcard" and the other locations should be pointing to that, so the contents of the "other locations" should be identical to that.
Thanks for the answer. I will try and express my current understanding in a few statements. If any of it is wrong I would appreciate someone putting me correct.
I came across this comment in another thread that answered one of my questions:
"I believe the location was changed because of the multiple users feature that has been incorporated into android.
If you go into storage you'll notice a folder called sdcard0. This is how android handles multiple users the next user would have a folder called sdcard1 and the next sdcard2 so forth and so on.
CWM had problems handling this so Koush changed the location to get around the problem."
