So I just rooted, and planned on flashing CM10, so I downloaded it, and placed it in the root of the SD card. When I went into recovery mode to search for the .zip, itb showed all the other files on the card, but not the .zip i needed. What gives? I've tried rebooting/redownloading, etc. nothing.
 
That app doesn't have elevated permissions to view root fs. Use X-plorer or ES File Explorer app or equivalent.

I'll try that, but why? I can see the files on my phone, but when in recovery they're not there. What would cause that?

EDIT: So using ES file explorer I checked, and dont see the files anymore... why not? I havent done much work in recovery since I rooted my OG Evo. Has something major changed with CWM since then?
