[Q] Can't find certain directory's
Hello, first of all, this pertains to the Galaxy Player 4.2. However, I couldn't find a section devoted to that device, so I will post here.
I would like to root my device. I did a lot of googling and research on the topic, and came up with this thread
being the agreed upon method.
I read through it and saw the issue with the WiFi not working after the process is finished. I also saw the solution people recommended being to copy the contents of /etc/wifi
and paste them back after rooting.
My problem is this. I am new to Android, and I don't know where to find this directory in order to copy the files.
I tried to look using the My Files app, but that appears to only explore the internal SD card. I did some research on the subject, and most people said that it is in the /system folder. I can't find that either. I also found mention that you need root privileges to access that folder. But I don't understand: how can I copy the files before rooting, if I need root privileges to do it?
Maybe I am totally off, but if so please correct me. Where are these files stored?
