So, let me see if I have this right, this is what the line should be:
dmesg | grep Firmware > /mnt/sdcard/dmesg.txt

After typing adb shell I get:
$Which is what you'd get in Terminal Emulator after typing (in lower case) su If the answer is yes, I get diddly squat. Alright if you're using terminal emulator just type: su dmesg | grep Firmware > /mnt/sdcard/dmesg.txt However just: dmesg | grep Firmware should work. The first will output the results to a text file on the sdcard, the second should display the results on the screen. If you've extracted the android SDK, go to control panel, system, advanced, there should be a button 'Enviroment Variables', find path under system variables and hit edit. Add to the end of it ;C:\path\to\adb.exe (mine is ;C:\android\platform-tools). After all that you can open a command prompt and run these commands, it's a long process I know. adb shell dmesg | grep Firmware You still need to turn wifi off than on in both cases. ## Neets 1376 posts Uber Geek Trusted Reply # 440415 16-Feb-2011 19:31 wazz: Neets: So, let me see if I have this right, this is what the line should be: adb shell dmesg | grep Firmware > /mnt/sdcard/dmesg.txt After typing adb shell I get:$

You still need to turn wifi off than on in both cases.

And my screen shot, becuase a picture speaks a thousand words.  And you may instantly see where I've stuffed up.

Of course the phone is connected via USB cable and I've turned off Wifi and tuned it back on again, while connected.

I'm sorry if I'm wasting your time. 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.

Try typing su after adb shell and see if it pops up. You'll know when you have root as the $will change to #. ## Neets 1376 posts Uber Geek Trusted Reply # 440421 16-Feb-2011 19:48 wazz: Neets: nadda, there's no request on the phone for Super User.

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.

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.
