General :: INQ Cloud Touch - Can't Get Root Permissions
Nov 9, 2011
I have got a INQ Cloud Touch mobile with android 2.2.2 froyo installed on it by default.The problem is that i can't get root permissions.. I tried almost everything i found looking on the web but nothing seems to work. Android apps like 'z4root', 'androot' or 'gingerbreak' crash or get stuck, and PC programs get stuck on 'waiting for device' even if the mobile is connected and debug mode is enabled. I really need root permissions because this mobile has plenty of useless apps that i can't remove without.INQ website provides only an update program that doesn't update android at all.I think my problem has 2 solutions:
Every few days(sometimes once a day) I get a 'new' android 4.3 update, which once it reboots into the teamwin bootloader, and finishes installing the update(which always seems to work for first 2 steps but says no contents in file, then 2 errors after) I lose root access and it asks if I want to reapply (which I do) and it loads as normal on a restart. I am with build number JWR66N now, but the info page on the TWRP window shows it updates JWR66N to (And I forgot the number here, but its different)
So I'd like to know, is it normal to have 'constant' android updates like this, and if not, what build number should I have?
I have had this issue since about a week after I got my nexus, its been rooted ever since, but in an attempt to fix this issue(Which is just annoying, I doubt its causing any real damage) I unrooted the nexus, updated it(Manually) and re-rooted it using the wugfresh rootkit.
I just got a dopo 7" tablet from a relative and for the life of me cannot get it to root. I have been at it since 3-4pm (its 11:10 now) and no matter what apk or .bat rootkit, or windows root exe i have tried from old guides and some new ("can root ANY android device 2014!!!") to YouTube videos.
i have unknown sources checked debugging checked tablet never sleeps/screen never shuts off have it plugged into laptop via the cable the tablet came with usb to micro root master apk failed suggested root-rk29 tab rootkit each step it tried it could not find any of the necessary files needed on my tablet (even after 3 restarts and 3 different methods) root will try to restore data like the programs steps shows but as soon as it says restore started it immediately says restore ended and it gives an X in the circle and wants me to retry (tried 4 times)
tried doomlordz v4 rootkit and same as other rootkit it says the files arnt found and does the alternative methods and SAYS its completed but root checker still says its not
tried key root master mentions something about a cloud program but never roots superoneclick becomes unresponsive for 20mins and does nothing so i have to end task (some says it freezes their phone/tablet) but my tablet acts like nothing is happening.I have tried Googling multiple times only to find results related to 9" version.
I have about reached my limit of patience on this thing..I have 0 knowledge on rooting other than reading up why I would want it or the common steps which did not work obviously...
I just updated my SGS to 2.3.6 (JW4) with CF-Root. I've been using Root Browser since 2.3.5 (with Superuser) with no problems but since updating to 2.3.6 (with SuperSU), Root Browser does not get root permissions. For example I can read the system partition but cannot write to it (like deleting a file). Also if I click on a file on the system partition and check it's properties Root Browser does not show the permissions, it just display N/A.
- configured SuperSU to the default allow action instead of prompting me
- installed Superuser, don't launch it, just install to check if it could be a problem with Root Browser way of cheking for root by using the presence of superuser.apk
- uninstalled and reinstalled Root Browser
None of the above has solved my problem. All the other apps that require root work fine.
Confirm that Root Browser does indeed work with SuperSU 0.87?
The permissions say that you must agree to allow them to delete files from your storage including your SD card; must agree to allow them to extract any information from your phone, etc. In other words they can do any thing they want with your phone and the data in it.
Is there any way to not grant these permissions and still get updates?
I had just sold my ZTE Majesty for a tablet. It's brand new that I got off of Amazon. It was only like 100 dollars or so. But here is my problem... I can't get this to root at all. Every application acts as if it isn't an Android device. I can't connect it to my PC because there isn't a way to view the files from the Tablet to the PC.
I've tried zRoot, Poot, Spaarkyroot, Framaroot, but I couldn't get any of those to work. And like I said, I can't do PC to Tablet connection (or at least I don't know how, there might be a way.)
Is it possible for an Android app to install a native Linux daemon with root privilege that runs when the system starts up? The purpose of this daemon would be to support and communicate with our Android front-end app.
While enabling bluetooth (market application) in my Xperia X10 mini pro, I get error message "Files can be transferred only to other android devices" since I don't have root permission. How do I get root permission? Is this legal?
Specifically, when I go to /mnt/sdcard/download all the files are ---rwxr-x. When I long-click a file I can access a Permissions dialog, but any changes I make there are not actually reflected on the file system. Anyone know what might be going on?
I am developing an application that needs to access data on the sd card. When I run on my development device (an odroid with Android 2.1) I have root access and can construct the path using:
However, when I install this on a phone (2.1) where I do not have root access I get files == null. I assume this is because I do not have the right permissions to read the data from the sd card. I also get files == null when just trying to list files on /sdcard. So the same applies without my constructed path.
Also, this app is not intended to be distributed through the app store and is needs to use data copied separately to the sd card so this is a real use-case. It is too much data to put in res/raw (I have tried, it did not work).
I have also tried adding: <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
To the manifest, even though I only want to read the sd card, but it did not help. I have not found a permission type for reading the storage.
I recently rooted my phone and removed some bloatware (all backed up btw) mainly the ones on the safe list in the thread posted about it here. I don't know if that is what is causing the following problem, but just to preface that if so.
I noticed it yesterday when I was trying to type something using swype, when I finished letting go the screen started to randomly tap and drag letters without me even touching it. I stopped had to turn the screen off/on to get it to stop. I also notice that if I hold the phone vertically and move it around a bit it starts to drag the home screens back and forth. Also when I am at the phone menu it's hard to tap the exact number I want. If I tap 5 say, it will randomly either tap 5 or 8. It's liek it's not calibrated.
So I go to the display to calibrate it and it kind of sort of alleviates some of the other issues, but I still have inaccurate touces. Is it a program I removed perhaps from htc that is necessary for the screen.
I'm thinking of unrooting and doing a stock RUU for evo, but I primarily want all the sprint garbage apps off, is it possible to remove all that through adb on an unrooted phone?
I am currently using the aid version on my s4 and the only down side I have with this phone is that it doesn't have good memory. So I wanted to set up the cloud services for my back ups to save some space.
I'm looking for a good cloud player so I can stream music from my dropbox account. I looked at cloudaround but I find it too buggy.I'm looking for one with a simple interface and user friendly, a little bit like the interface of the iPod.
All I'm trying to do is synchronize my calendar and contacts between different devices and my pc. But I have a few requirements.
I want to access in read-write mode my data from my devices (i.e I want to be able to create a new contact from my phone or from my laptop, and my contact list must be updated everywhere)
I DON'T want to use google services (google agenda, etc.), and I DON'T want my data to be hosted on a server that I don't own. Clearly said, I want to host my data by myself. I'm running an ubuntu laptop
I've stumbled upon solutions like Own Cloud and Funambol. Will they do the trick?
I am currently using SMS Backup+ to backup my messages. It works great but it does not restore MMS messages. Any app that backs up to a cloud service and restores everything including all MMS with the associated pictures, files, videos, etc.
I've looked in Appbrain and all I see are apps for 1 touch or 2 touch reboot. What I'd like is to find an app that will shut my phone off. Period. Plain and simple. Anyone know of this? If not, will you make it for me? A friend of mine told me how easy app inventor is. When I get my google invitation, that will be my first app.
I'm basically looking for an app, that can provide syncronisation between a folder on my device, and a folder on <insert cloud storage here>. I'm personally trying to migrate away from Dropbox, of which I've been a heavy user for many years. But in the light of the recent NSA gate, I thought I'd take a look what else is out there. I've chosen MEGA, as they provide (on paper) the security I like, and enough storage for my cloud-storage-needs.
I've been using Dropbox to automatically store the images I've taken with my phone camera and I take a backup of my texts every night at 2pm, which is also, automagically, uploaded to Dropbox. The official MEGA app takes care of the first, but the latter is taken care of within the backup app itself. It can be disabled, though.
I've looked for sync apps, but neither those or apps like Helium doesn't support MEGA.
Multi Maps NON root has been released by XDA developers here is a youtube demo of it with the link and tutorial on how to download...YouTube - Multi-Touch Browser (Root) and Maps Multi-Touch NO ROOT!!!!! on Droid, G1 and MyTouch 3G
Is it possible to have Google Play Music display cloud content only? Currently it displays both my cloud content and music stored locally so everything is duplicated.. Makes it hard to stream to my Chromecast, as it does not currently play local content, so I have to choose every other track to play via Chromecast.
I don't feel like installing all these specific dedicated apps to manage my accounts on box, google drive, skydrive and sugarsync, so I was wondering since some users seem to have multiple accounts with these services, how do they manage them on their device? What apps would let us do something like that?
I don't quite know where to place this, but I have Rom toolbox pro and I want everything backed up, so when I do a system reset, I get everything back. I can backup phone data, but I don't see an option to back it up on dropbox. Am I overlooking something?
Oh, also, can I only back up app data to the cloud, and not the entire app? I'll just download it when I need it, but, I'd like the app settings on the cloud.
