location: androidpark.com - date: April 8, 2013
You can learn here how to execute shell commands as root and read output and errors
What you will need:Eclipse with ADT plugin
Basic knowledge of java
Rooted android device
Root commands should always be executed in background thread, you can use AsyncTask for example
I won't explain here how to use AsyncTask, maybe in another tut.
Also note that I'm a relative beginner myself so I won't use professional terms I'll try to explain in my own words, so I'm sorry in advance if you have no idea what I'm talking about
1. First thing that we need to do is open a new root shell like this:
Execute root commands in app permission denied

I've just rooted my phone and shabbyed it. I'm trying to replace the launcher that shabby has with the stock one. I cannot get the launcher.apk copied into the bloody apps folder. I'm using FileExpert which comes with shabby mod. How in the world do I toggle permissions/root in file expert or whatever to get this stupid file to copy.
AOSP browser without root (yes you read that right) 4.3
location: androidpark.com - date: July 31, 2013
I have a method to install the aosp browser without any root privileges at all and no modifications of the system partition. Just involves installing 2 or 3 apks (depending if you want bookmark syncing). This should work on any of the other nexus devices that came without stock browser.
Please don't repost this yet. I want to add in the other languages to browser.apk for the "find on page" button in the menu. I fixed English. The stock nexus roms don't have the string in framework-res for this one button.
Download zip (this is not a cwm package/just extract it or open the files from inside)
1. Use es file manager to browse to system/app and install browserproviderproxy (it will say app not installed, don't worry it worked) OR install the included file
2. Reboot (it will not work without rebooting first)
3. Install Browser4.3_blackhand1001.apk
4. Install ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter_blackhand1001.apk (this will give you bookm
Help! Can't root! Read only file system?
location: droidmania.com - date: October 14, 2012
I've got some major issues lately! I tried to root today to get NXT bean rom installed. (I've been using Honeycomb unrooted for a month now)
Thing is, everytime I root with Zergrush (it usually works all the time) IT doesnt work.
It says several 'failed to copy *blah blah* to system: Read only file system.
I think my file system is mounted in read only mode. How do I fix this and root?

No read/write /System/ permissions after root?
location: droidmania.com - date: January 12, 2012
I've just recently rooted my HTC Incredible (following the instructions on this sticky) but I don't seem to have read/write privileges in the /system/ folder. I've installed some root-only apps, & I've given superuser privileges to some apps so I know it worked. I've given superuser privileges to 'Super Manager', 'Android Mate', and 'ROM Toolbox', but none of these program's file managers are able to make changes in the /system/ folder.
The only clue I have is a message 'Super Manager' gives me when I enter /system/. A box appears titled 'Switch System R/W', containing the message:
"If you want to modify the file in system, you have to mount system image first. Please choose access mode:
System Image: R/O"
There are three buttons: 'R/W', 'Read Only', and 'Do Nothing'. All three choices leave me in r/o mode (as indicated in the upper left corner of the screen).
I've been googling this R/W problem for hours. Everyone seems to get around this sort of issue by simply trying
Why root, is it worth the risk? Please read.
location: droidmania.com - date: December 17, 2011
Hi, new to this forum and I have read on many sites that it is not worth the trouble and problems that it can create, and that rooting can permanently screw up the phone to where the the phone is unusable or worthless. Obviously many do root and prefer it. So, please, If you could list some of the benefits that I would gain from rooting vs a standard OEM android phone. My phone has Android 2.2.2 . I am certainly not an IT technician but I am much more competent then the average person. Thank you in advance.
