I'm currently rooted on a Samsung S3 i9300 running a custom rom on Kitkat 4.4.2
I use es file explorer to perform root tasks on directories and files, I wanted to permanently turn off the led lights on my phone's hardware softkeys as I don't use them anymore.
I read somewhere on xda developers that changing the numeric string
255 in the
max_brightness file to
/sys/class/leds/mmc2:: should do the trick.
I have "root explorer" on in Es file explorer and have the right permissions to copy the file over to my SD card but I kept getting a task failed error in the app.
I then decided to go hardcore by using the terminal emulator app from the play store using the Linux command line syntax.
I was able to copy the file over to my SD card but something strange happened, the original file according to es file explorer was 4kb in size while the file copied to the SD card was 2 bytes in size..
I'm really puzzled, is there a better way to copy files from the root directories?
PS: The "mmc1::" and "mmc2::" folder icon has an arrow shortcut icon next to it and I've always been able to copy other files from root directories using es file explorer until this particular file.
