Some info..

I used Ketan's rom for note and browsed the files for Cache, recovery and all I see is they are empty even after flashing multiple times.. and when I change the permissions, they dont get changed on the Cache/recovery.. neither I can mount them..

I am trying to see If I can access the folders using Ubuntu on VMware player.. or atleast format the int SD card..
