How can I access my internal phone storage on PC? I mean the root storage, the path. So that I could put back the lost app on the system storage.


You might want to take a closer look into adb, which gives you a command shell directly on the device. Using , you could do the following:

# copy your file to the device
adb push my.apk /data/local/my.apk
# open a shell on the device, and become root
adb shell
# now check where and how your /system partition is mounted, and make it writeable
mount | grep system
> /dev/block/stl12 /system ext4 ro,relatime,barrier=1,data=ordered 0 0
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/stl12 /system
# copy your .apk file to the system apps
cp /data/local/my.apk /system/app
# remount /system back to read-only
mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/stl12 /system

In above example, you need of course to replace my.apk with the correct name. Same applies to the mount data: The line starting with > is just an example, which might (and most likely will) not match your device. So carefully check the output of mount | grep system to use the correct values here.

If you don't have ADB installed yet, please follow the information given in the adb tag-wiki, which also points to installation instructions and more.
