General :: No Root Programs Can Access Permissions
Apr 7, 2014
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...
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 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:
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 am currently building a simple application for Android using the NDK and needs to get the coordinates from the GPS. I've searched the web, but have come up empty handed. Is there some API or such for NDK-programs to access the GPS?
New proud owner of the droid as of yesterday and the phone is unbelievable.I have been making my way around and search the apps I want/need but I can not seem to find any information easily on any good applications that are able to stream video or music from lets say a media server I am running in my house. any suggestions?Are there also any good remote access programs? free preferably.
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.
i am seriously considering joining the root party, but the number of 3rd party programs needed seems daunting. can anyone compile a list of all the software/download links you need to do it correctly? i have already read the following threads and am pretty set on using BuglessBeast 0.5 as my new ROM.The Official One-Click Rooting Solution for Droid Thread LATEST: V2.0.4.Painless and Thorough ROM Switching in Under an Hour.i know those threads mention Motorola Drivers, Soup or Root, ROM Manager, Nandroid, CW Recovery, and a few other programs. which ones do i absolutely need, and is there possibly an easier way than the one posted above to load BuglessBeast after i am done with the root? when i first started looking up info, i figured rooting would be the hard part; now it appears that loading the new ROM is much more complicated. i know there is alot of info already posted here, but sifting through it all for the useful bits is an arduous task. please be nice to the newb!
This is now the second day that I'm trying to root my Evo 4G. So far, I've unlocked the bootloader using the htcdev.com method, but I can't get root access. I think my problem is an old version of hboot (0.99.0001, got it from latest HTC software update [2.3.4]), since the Revolutionary tool is saying that my version isn't supported. I've looked all over for how to update my hboot to 2.15 or 2.16, but nothing has worked. I still have S-ON.
I've tried flashing Amon Ra via command prompt (hangs on "waiting for device") and using the Android Flasher program (hangs on "please wait while your phone is flashed"). I've followed all the steps in the first method on this guide (androidforums com/evo-4g-all-things-root/488901-revised-rooting-gingerbread-2-3-5-dummies-guide.html, but to no avail.
How in the world do I go about rooting this thing? Or even just updating my hboot version?
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 even tried flashing a custom rom (Fresh) on the last attempt and it just seems like it is giving me the Sprint stock Rom. Shouldn't the custom Rom look different? Once rooted do I still need to use Unrevoked method to grant superuser access for Apps?
I need to download a root in order to Delete programs I don't use? (such as "City ID" and "Skype" and all the others on my Apps panel I don't use, ever.) Am I correct? Also read on the "Sticky" that task killers actually slow my phone down? I use advanced task killer free and it makes my battery life way longer and gives me the ability to kill stuff I ain't using.
I really like the phone a lot! I use the barcode scanner and the google goggles (which I think needs some more work IMO) and constantly google stupid stuff at work that me and the guys come up with. I really like the phone, but wouldn't mind getting rid of some useless programs I have. (Like on my home PC). Not to forget the Full version of Angry Birds. I'm addicted to that game! Its awesome! (reminds me of the game "Gorilla" that windows NT used to have).
It seems that I accidentally changed the ownership of the su file to "system, sdcard_rw" and now I have no way to change it back to "root, root". Everything was working fine beforehand. I have already attempted to reroot using the same way I originally rooted the device and hard reset with no luck.

I have an UTOK 700Q tablet running android 4.2.2 and the manufacturer has made an update to the firmware that requires a full wipe but i want to backup some apps before that.
I've found a way to do a full backup on android via adb on an unrooted device, but is a bit tedious (currently in progress) and while doing it i've noticed that adb has root access:
Now this made me wonder if i can just install titanium backup from adb with root permissions as a system app (or something, not really sure if it's correct, but i hope you understand what i want) so i can backup my apps easier from there.
Also, as a side note, using root checker i see that busybox and su are installed but no SuperUser is found, what does this really mean?
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Victory LTE and I'm having trouble with Link2SD. I've got a 32GB SD card with a 1.5GB partition, and a 30 GB (or thereabouts) partition. I've verified in SuperSU that Link2SD has root access. But when I start up Link2SD, first I get this toast:
"Link2sd has been granted superuser permissions for an interactive shell." ...ok, that sounds good ...
Then a dialog:
"Select the file system of your sd card's second partition", where I select the Fat32/Fat16 option.
Then I get this dialog:
"Link2SD could not obtain root access.
If you have root access make sure you respond 'Allow' or 'Grant' to the superuser request ."
I went through odin v.3 the (COM) spot was lite blue not yellow idk if that matters but it passed and installed cwm custom recovery just like it should, I then installed superuser.zip onto my .sd card and went into custom recover and installed superuser file. the only thing wrong I sawe there is that it failed to verify the signatures? but other than that it said successful/pass all that good stuff and when I turned my phone on and checked the root status it says no root access and superuser not found!!!
Now this is not the first time ive rooted a phone, im no expert by any means but I have successfully rooted and flashed roms to many gs4's with the same computer/odin version/root files...
creating an app which requires root access.Purpose of this app
1) Able to access a file in root/data/data/*APP XYZ*/*THIS FILE* 2) Generate a random string of number 3) Replace the specific string in *THIS FILE* with the randomly generated number 4) Saves *This File*
Right now I can do it manually but it is rather tedious. Was thinking if it would be possible to create an app to do this automatically with one click.
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.
