    When i open up root explore and go to the sdcard, it still has the button saying mount r/w or r/o. It wont allow me to move things unless i hit r/w, but that made some glitches occur when moving files!

    Has anyone else had this problem, and care to help me out?

    R/O is read only, meaning you only have permission to read the files. If you want to change something you have to mount it R/W, or Read/Write. And depending on which files you are changing it can cause some issues.

    Ahh, you'll have to forgive me, I assumed that you mis-spoke when you said "SD Card". I would suggest un-installing Root Explorer then re-installing it. I have seen oddities in other apps fixed by this method. If that that doesen't work then I apologize for being no help at all to you. Lol.
