CWM gives an error "E:Can't mount /external_sd" when trying to acess sd. Now on the site that has cwm and twrp for the "RK3066 and RK3188" it says twrp isnt able to access sd card, but cwm is supposed to be able to.
Is it giving that error because LegacyRom uses nexus as a device label or something?
Taken from XDA forum
Since nobody did explain why it can't mount, I will.
GALAXY NEXUS HAS NO SDCARD. It only has folder that is used as sdcard. CWM doesn't know that, thus making that mount feature useless on Galaxy Nexus
Like El Daddy said, connect your computer while your phone is in recovery mode, open cmd on the directory where you have fastboot.exe, then type "adb push ROMNAME.zip /sdcard/". You will also need to place your ROM file into the directory where you have fastboot.exe
Since that's done, please use search next time. There are too many threads talking about this exact problem.
should it be working?
oh also when i do a backup, in the print out i get a few lines:
- E: Can't mount backup path.
- SD Card space free 25975MB ( so it reads the card right i think )
- No .android_secure found. Skipping backup of applications on external storage.
so if it cant read from external it would make CWM useless for me. If i can't flash an image from sd card on a stuck boot or brick then kinda makes it poop.
