    The problem is that my default path is pointing at "mobile" when it should be "root"
    I used "terminal" to find out this. When i open terminal, it is pointing at that "mobile" path.

    Any idea to point to the root?

    thx in advance

    What client are you using? I.E. WinSSH, CuteFTP, CyberDuck, etc. Why does it matter, just change the directory you are in.

    There's the solution man,

    1) open terminal
    2)writre "su" then it will ask you a password
    3) if you did not change your password default is "alpine"
    you should now be in the root directory.
    make sure you write the password correctly because it is NOT displaying anything not even "****"
