    So, I'm having problems with ADB and Froyo, and wanted to see if anyone else has been.

    I've just installed Bugless Beast Froyo, and am trying to push a slightly customized launcherpro to /system/app/.

    After using ADB Shell to mount /system R,W I use adb push to push com.fede.launcher-1.apk to /system/app at which point it tells me the file could not be pushed, permission denied.

    If I copy the file from my sdcard to /system/app via Terminal app, Astro, or Root Explorer, it just doesn't work. The file sits there in /system/app but is not installed.

    Any help would be great! Thanks.

    Yeah, if I try and push to /system while in Recovery mode, for instance, it will work without mounting anything r,w. But, again, it won't actually install the app.

    Might have found a solution...like I said, I was able to get the file into /system/app via Terminal, but it didn't install. I rebooted just now and now it is using the version I pushed, not the one installed from the Market, so it looks like you have to reboot now for the change to take effect.

    I still can't push thru ADB though.

    !!!! Solved for me !!!!

    After two days of searching and trying on my own to find a solution I found one that worked for me. Check out post #7 at this link Froyo and ADB dont work together? It worked for me. I sure don't remember ever having to use the "root" command before but i guess I will now. I know there are alot of other threads about this on this and other sites, so if you know of some please post something there so others don't have such a hard time finding the answer. Thanks for the fix mrZoSo!!!!!!!!!!
