    I have a new bootanimation.zip with sound that I want to place into /data/local (as the OS looks there first instead of replacing the one in /system if I understand correctly)

    However I don't wish to use ADB, or even root explorer, would anyone know the commands that I could use in terminal emulator?

    I know the move command and tried, but I get a cross device link error if I'm in /data/local and try the mv command, likewise if in sdcard and just try mv bootanimation.zip /data/local as well

    any thoughts or can you direct me to someone who knows android code?

    Thanks,

    Marc

    By no means am I suggesting this will work, but when I'm copying from the sdcard to the /system/framework folder, I use TE and type:

    su
    sys -rw
    busybox cp /sdcard/file_name.ext /system/framework
    sys -ro
    reboot

    Someone just shared that with me since I changed to v0.3 and then v0.4.
    When I was on 1.1 and before it was different.


    So, can't you use that to push to the /system/media folder?

    Hi,

    Thanks, yes, that likely will work, but I prefer to throw it to data/local because then if I want to revert I just remove it. I'm told the less I mess with the system folder the better.

    I don't have the sys command it seems, get sys: not found
