    Hello. I am attempting to adb shell in to my phone from OSX. I have downloaded and am running the Android SDK. I am able to establish a connection with my phone and it is showing up in devices:

    My phone is rooted, running an early v2.2 (pete's build).

    I'm using Recovery Console v0.99.3b.

    I'm assuming before I launch adb shell, I need to mount a combination of /data or /system.

    If I mount /data, I can adb shell and see the contents of my phone.

    I can then mount /system and cd to /system/app and see my apps.

    I have also been able to push an app to the phone.

    The ISSUE I'm having is, I can't perform root functions. In fact, typing "su" returns the error:

    This is frustrating, as the phone is definitely rooted. I feel as though I'm missing a step here.

    Any help is appreciated.

    may I ask why are you using adb shell when you can use sprecovery to install root files.
