    how to root/get root access in android emulator?

    Hi all,

    I have All android SDK versions(from 1.5 to 2.3.3), and i tried many methods for getting root in android emulator. I don't use any android device and test everything on emulator(AVD).

    below are my android versions and emulator specification::

    Android SDK Version 1.5:
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.27-00110-g132305e
    mikechan@cheetara #6
    Build Number:
    sdk-eng 1.5 CUPCAKE 150240 test-keys

    Android SDK Version 1.6:
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.29-00177-g24ee4d2
    veenstra@jackv)
    Build Number:
    sdk-eng 1.6 Donut 20842 test-keys


    Android SDK Version 2.1 update1:
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.29-00261-g0097074
    digit@digit#14
    Build Number:
    sdk-eng 2.1-update1 ECLAIR 35983 test-keys


    Android SDK Version 2.2:
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.29-00261-g0097074-dirty
    digit@digit#20
    Build Number:
    sdk-eng 2.2 FRF91 43546 test-keys

    Android SDK Version 2.3.3:
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.29-00261-g0097074-dirty
    digit@digit#20
    Build Number:
    sdk-eng 2.3.3 GRI34 101070 test-keys

    I need to get root access in any one of the android emulator to use the 'iptables' and 'busybox' functionality. And to use iptables i must have root access. Atleast 'su' command should execute in the terminal emulator.

    I also installed 'z4root' application, but it takes very long time and doesn't finish rooting, and gets stuck. some say that if we downgrade the system to below RC30, this way we can get root access...if this is true, then how to do this, i use both linux and windows OS.

    please someone tell me any method to root my emulator...

    i, very urgently need this. please please help.....


    Thank you very much..!!

    [How-To](UPDATED 11/1/10)Working Marketplace in 2.2 Emulator (no system.img)(ROOTED) - xda-developers
    Root works in 2.3.3 and you get the market to. The market is lacking alot of apps for osme reason but i think i saw a fix for this the other day. Also keep in mind this is the old market GUI/apk.

    thanks everyone for giving time.

    Emulator cant be rooted. it can be rooted temporarily by remounting and the root is not persistent, it goes off at the next reboot.
    And also, i need root to perform system level operations and to deal with iptables.
    now i test with temporary root. thanks you.

    you could set ro.secure in the default prop to =0

    "ro.secure=0"

    at least i think so
