      Every mobile has root directory just check them twice.. root directory of your sd card..

      How to access it?
      Open File Manager >> External Sd (this is your root directory for your sd card)

    Should I copy the file to the root directory of the SD card or the internal storage? Coz in the MI forum, its said to copy to the root of the internal storage.
