Type "adb devices" when there is no $ or #. Because you are executing the "adb.exe" file here, and giving it a parameter. 

So in bold is what you are typing and pressing enter.

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb devices 
[returns device]

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb shell 

$su

#[now you can carry on with the dmesg thing]


Yep, doing all that: Not my lucky day


That is very strange, never had any issues running dmesg. Hardcore may have made a mistake when compiling the kernel. Are you both using 13A?

Anyway I'll flash 13A after dinner and see if it gives me any issues.

Not that I know anything about dmesg :P but I came across this on xda the (reply is by Hardcore himself):




Hi hardcore! 

I'm using Doc's XWJS5 rom with your k13a kernel. And what I'm trying to achieve is to get dmesg output in adb. 

I enabled Android logger in CWM, in Tweaks section. I can launch logcat and read output. dmesg isn't working. 

I tried to run dmesg through busybox in adb, but still nothing happened. Even su didn't help.


Sorry to say, dmesg is disabled in the newer kernel versions, and it can't be re-enabled from CWM (only logcat can be re-enabled). Do you really need dmesg - it's probably only useful to the kernel devs.



So there's your definite answer, no dmesg on K13A

Hmm yeah bugger, wouldn't hurt to flash the older firmware if you're unsure anyway. Here's the link

Well, that was quite the experience. Thanks wazz and defragger for your help.  I'm glad it wasn't all my fault for being female and all ;-)

Sorry to have taken up plenty of real estate in the thread.

Now, if R2D2 has been watching, I hope he's got his sorted - which assume he's not on Hardcore's k13a.

Yeah I'm not on 13A, and it didn't work for me.

Wiping my battery stats tonight and recalibrating my battery. Hopefully gives me better battery life.

The JPY wifi driver really is shocking, left my wifi on the other night and it drained 70% overnight.

It's worth following lokhor's link and replacing the JPY wifi drivers with the JPA ones referenced. I haven't done a close measure of the comparative performance of the two wifi driver executions, but I can say that as of this moment, my SGS has been up for 21 hours and the battery monitor says there's 53% remaining charge, indicating 40+ hours on a full charge. I understand that it's not the world record or anything, but today's performance is so superior to yesterday's that it mght as well be 2 different phones we're talking about here.

So give it a whirl if you're on JPY and having battery duration issues. You have nothing to lose except a reason to whinge here about Sammy and their flawed but eminently desirable kit.

Cheers,
R2D2

Haven't done a SpeedMod or comparable kernel transplant as yet and I didn't really follow the train of thought behind the grep-fest. So I'll read the posts again when I'm fresh and semi-intelligent next - possibly tomorrow?

Thanks all for attempting to get the issues resolved. And especially Neets for being my Den-Mother.

Cheers,

Those posts were just a way to check which wifi firmware you're using, turns out hardcore has disabled dmesg anyway.

Battery update...

Hi all.

Overnight drop was 11%, with data on but wifi off. So looking good so far.

Doubt that 40 hours will be possible but 30 is a given and 36 is certainly within reach. Woohoo...

Cheers,
R2D2
