I have just tried rooting my newly upgraded phone using this method.
I find a number of things interesting
On the GNote, the external SD card is in /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/
The stock recovery sees that correctly, but only shows a limited number of
directories from the external_sd, and sorts capitals before lowercase, so that my 'download' dir was not shown. I had to make a new dir
a) The CWM recovery for me
b) showd the internal SD card from /mnt/sdcard by default
c) only shows one subdir (/mnt/sdcard/external_sd/dailyroads)
on the external SD card. Not sure why that is.
I even moved the files SU-Busybox-installer.zip to the /mnt/sdcard/external_sd
(root of the external_sd) but even that did not show.
I will try if I can mount the external SD on a PC and fsck/checkdsk it, in case something is broken..
or maybe i'll try to use a small spare microsd just for the rooting process...
