If I want to edit files in my /system folder with 7zip, how do I make a copy of it to do so? Can I simply use Root Explorer to make a copy of the folder to my /sdcard folder, or is that impossible because the phone is using some of the files in the /system folder? I tried to use Root Explorer to do just that, copy and paste the /system folder to the /sdcard folder, but a half an hour passed and it wasn't done; is that because the /system folder is so large (hence I'm being impatient), or because you can't copy the /system folder to the /sdcard folder using Root Explorer, while the phone is on? Is there a way to see the /system folder on your PC while connected via the USB cable, or is the /sdcard folder the only one you can see?
Thanks in advance for your help!
