    Both the terminal and the phone show connection. Within the phone I can actually see the shared files.

    Seems to show a directory issue.

    Question

    So, If I'm reading this correctly, I install this Virtual Box on my pc using a windows application, and then use the commands that have been previously released for unbunto? Sorry if I sound newbie, but this process has been confusing for me. Thank you in advance
    Happy Bionic Owner

    Yes, do exactly as advised in marty45714's original instructions on page 1 of this thread. He's simplified it a little more. Worked flawless for me.

    Thanks

    Just wanted to say thank you. After the update on my phone I lost root, and my old oneclick method didn't work. Followed instructions here and I'm back in control of my phone. Big thanks once again.

    Hi All...I seem to have the same problem as the picture below. It states that /system/bin/sh not found. My phone never rebooted when it says "your phone may appear to reboot"

    You have to load a remote storage. Go to files, click on remote storage then add storage. You have to know your IP address. The remaining steps are self explanatory. Don't forget to click on USB debugging in settings.

    Well, I got it to work. Not sure if this matters, but here's what I did differently.

    Instead of doing su - like you asked, I accidentally went past the point of putting in the previous commands and it went through with rooting the device.

    When it restarted the first time, on the eye it vibrates 3 times. I always let it boot up before I did anything else, except this time I went ahead and hit enter to continue right after it vibrated three times and before the phone finished restarting. The phone restarted and now my phone is rooted.

    Guess it was user error all along, thanks a lot OP :p

    Congrats on getting it to work. Unfortunately, I'm still a little lost....as you can tell, I'm not as tech-savvy.

    As I mentioned, when I try to follow the instructions, I get past the point where it says that it's pushing the exploit. Unfortunately, after it pushes, my phone never reboots even though the prompts says it might. Then, it states that /system/bin/sh not found.

    Can anyone explain to me in layman's terms what this means? Am I doing something wrong?

    Well i do the remote storage and i get the files, that isnt the problem, once i do that step and run the exploit i get the same error as @lfegerber.

    i tried to enter in a manual command like some have posted but im not to familiar with linux and it auto-runs and soon as i strike one key on my keyboard to enter in the manual command.

    So im stuck for a moment, i want to know if its something im doing, the instructions are pretty straight forward and easy to follow, i have tried it multiple times and get the same response.

    i did test if i hit enter again it reboots my phone but no root access.
