Hello there!

According to this post [] the /mnt/sdcard directory now points to the internal memory, to a writable partition.

This makes the sd card to be mounted in other directory, that varies from company to company. In my case (samsung galaxy mini 2) this directory is "/mnt/sdcard/external_sd".

Is there a way to get this "real" sd card folder?

Thanks for your answers and your time.

It does seems to be a struggle to get the real path on all devices as manufacturers vary the path. Out of curiosity, why do you want it? as of 4.4 you cannot dump files wherever you like anyways.
