I have a couple questions.
First, Can i hook up my phone to the PC and use this "ADB Shell" to type in all of my command lines? if so, where can i download it, or how do i access it?
Second: I cannot seem to the scripts to work on the BB v 0.9 If i can get ADB Shell to work I can then take screenshots of what I am doing, so hopefully i can figure out what I am doing wrong.
Yes you can use adb, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...mands-3-a.html .
As to the scripts there was a thread about them around here somewhere. If I find it I will link it, maybe your problem will be solved through it.
thanks. I believe i saw the thread you were talking about. I sifted through the 6 or so pages and it didn't work. Maybe with this ADB i'll be able to find out what i'm missing.
Yeah that was the one ( http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...n-scripts.html ).
If you want you can post screenshots of what you are doing, and someone or myself may be able to figure out what is going wrong.
From page 9 of version 9 of Petes BB rom... Here are the commands that you need to use to enable the scripts. These can be done either in a terminal emulator window on your phone, or using ADB shell.
I prefer to use ADB shell when running these commands because you can cut and paste when using the PC. To do this, highlight the line, not including (enter), of course.. and then in the adb shell window, right click and choose paste. It really helps with eliminating the typing errors!!
adb shell (enter) <--- use if you are using your PC
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (enter)
chmod 777 /system/xbin/enablescripts (enter)
Once you get this working, go back to page 1 of his ROM thread and start turning stuff on and off.. good luck!
hmmm. I couldn't figure out ADB, but this is a picture of the droid running Terminal Emulator.
Either way, still says its denied... could this be something with "busybox" or w/e?
also tried this, but to no avail... I'm sure i'm just missing something easy :/
First off, just so you know adb only works from a PC side. adb allows you to access your phone via command prompt. You can access other commands you can't through terminal, like push a file from your PC to a specific spot on the phone, and pull a file from the phone to your PC. A pretty nice writeup http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...mands-3-a.html . Not that any of this matters right now, but that is why adb shell in terminal emulator comes up with errors.
Maybe busybox doesn't have the right permissions.
Then try typing "droidboot" or whatever script you are trying to run.
chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox
