I'm trying to root and flash my sons Samsung galaxy ace 2 (GINGERBREAD 2.3.6) but I can't access the sd card. I have tried 3 different sd cards all formatted in the phone but when I put the correct "root" file onto the root of the sd card using my PC I cant access the sd card in recovery mode. For some reason when I go into recovery mode it will only let me see the internal memory files and not those on the sd card. It says /sd card but shows the internal storage files.
Here's some more info ;-
Abit more info here ;-
the phone is from Spain originally on Movistar and still boots with the logo.
the CSC is XEC spain
when I put the "root" file onto the formatted SD card and go into recovery mode i get this message on the phone in blue writing , takes about a minute to boot to recovery ;-
-- copying media files . .
Successfully copied media files.
# MANUAL MODE #

Can't access to '/system/csc/XEC/system/' .
Successfully applied multi-CSC.
then I get these choices ;-
reboot system now
apply update from sdcard
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
I then select "apply update from sdcard" then on the next screen i see this ;-
Choose a package to install:
I've also looked in the external_sd/ for the "root" file I put on the sd card and even though I've put the "root" file to the root of the sd card it doesnt show. Some of those files will be daft apps my son's installed.
I'm totally baffled as to why its showing the system/internal memory files and not the root of the sd card.
Does anyone know why ? and how do I access the root of the sd card so I can root the phone and flash it.
