Question [Q] [Xperia j] CMW ''No files found''

Hey, i'm new to these forums and new to android tinkering indeed.

My phone is Xperia j and i was using .31 jb locked bl. My goal is to get .31 rooted and a ram file swap. I downgraded to 7.5. and rooted. After that i copied the .31 rooted zip to my sd card and my internal storage( sd card is class 10 8gb) and i installed CWM (exact version is cwm-sr13gx v6.0.2.7 as shown on my phone). After i run cwm from my phone and i try to "choose zip from card' i just get "no files found".

What am i doing wrong?

I did try that but it the result was the same. I read your posts regarding this issue on a different thread. Well the ram usage is lower now that i am on 7.5 than .31 and i am rooted so i got that going for me. I will test it out more myself, but is 7.5 actually better( performance wise) than .31? I don't see any big ui improvments on .31. Thing is if i can't get CWM to work properly i won't be able to to a ram swap, or is there another way to do it?
Loads of question marks.

I don't see why CWM won't read your sdcard that normaly only happens if the sd is lower than a class 4. try and reinstall CWM. for better performance i would recommend AVD rom it is the fastest stock based custom rom. when you say you want to swap ram what exactly do you mean.

I want to create a extension on my sd card for my ram ( a swap file i understud it was called) like virtual memory on windows. I was going to install than rom later on( starting out on simpler things), but yeah i got stuck on the CWM issue.

Thats not swapping ram its swapping dalvik cache and does not really make much difference and you need a kernel that supports swap which stock kernels don't bro. have you tried another sd in your phone and check that it is formatted as fat32.

Oh snap!

Well that was a wasted friday night for me. If i can't do the ram extension thing then there's no point in keeping 7.5 root and i'll just go back to stock .31. Um, can i install games directly on my sd card w/o root?

Yes its fat32, i will try to install the AVD rom you made from another sd card, it sounds really good.

you can move apps to your internal storage with native apps2sd but not all apps/games support it. if you want to root jb .31 then see here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2366577
