I just like to get to the bottom of this.  I'm like a dog with a bone now.  I need to know how to do it :)  Then I probably will never use SDK again - haha.EDIT: Looks like you dont have root access actually, try adb shell again and check your phone for a su request.

You'll know when you have root as the $will change to #. ## Neets 1376 posts Uber Geek Trusted Subscriber  Reply # 440421 16-Feb-2011 19:48 wazz: Neets:nadda, there's no request on the phone for Super User.Try typing su after adb shell and see if it pops up.It returns:adb: not foundAnd that's what I get in Terminal Emulator, I just tried.

I would think it should be connected, that's one of the beauties of SDK is being able to kick start your phone if it's got debugging on.

I would think it should be connected, that's one of the beauties of SDK is being able to kick start your phone if it's got debugging on.Do it like thisadb shell [enter]su [enter and accept request on phone]If you have an '#', then you have superuser access.EDIT: Yeah make sure your phone is in development mode. Type "adb devices" initially to make sure your device is connected, then proceed to the shell command. ## wazz 159 posts Master Geek  Reply # 440423 16-Feb-2011 19:52 Neets: It returns:adb: not foundAnd that's what I get in Terminal Emulator, I just tried.

You'll just get a device not found error if debugging isnt enabled. ## Neets 1376 posts Uber Geek Trusted Subscriber  Reply # 440429 16-Feb-2011 19:59 defragger: Neets: wazz: Neets:nadda, there's no request on the phone for Super User.Try typing su after adb shell and see if it pops up.It returns:adb: not foundAnd that's what I get in Terminal Emulator, I just tried.

You're in the shell of the phone. So adb commands no longer work, type exit to get back to the normal command prompt. Anyway just type dmesg (once in shell) and see if it brings anything up.

Hmm... Ahhh, I'm laughing. Ok, I c@cked up a bit at the beginning becuase I didn't realise about the super user bit. But I've compared screen shots (thanks wazz, that link arrived after I'd hit the quote button). Glad I'm not a complete waste of space. I was starting to think it was a gender thing and I should just back away from the computer.
