    I'm wanting to add some tasks to the 'kill list' To add tasks to the list I thought all I had to do was add them to the csm.lst file in the /data/chevyno1/ directory (per the note in ChevyNo1 Tools). When I navigate to the /data/ folder I get the message "Directory is empty" using Astro and File Manager.

    What am I doing wrong?

    What file explorer are you using? Some can't see the data folder.

    use root explorer or ES file explorer(if u use this one, make sure to go into its settings>root options> and check both boxes.)

    I think im going to make some changes to this as well. :)

    I've tried using Astro, File Manager and ES File Explorer. All 3 state the file is empty.

    i can't speak for the other file explorers but astro has never been able to see what's in the data folder. i have to use root explorer for anything i do in that folder myself.

    If the file browser does not execute as root - it cannot see /data ... that is for sure!

    I downloaded Root Explorer. I was able to navigate to /data/chevyno1 and I made a copy of csm.lst (for backup). I then opened cms.lst in Text Editor and made a few changes. I selected Save & Exit and re-opened the file to confirm my changes 'stuck' and they did not.

    Why would my changes not save? I did mount as r/w.

    I figured it out. I changed the permissions of csm.lst. After I uncheck all of the 'Execute' boxes I was able to edit the file.

    I don't think the built-in task killer does anything unless you set it up to automatically kill something.
