Samsung Fascinate :: Access Fascinate's System Files - Folders

Oct 18, 2010

I have a rooted Fascinate. Using ES file explorer I was able to view system folders and found the system media files containing ringtones, notification tone, etc. However, I can not edit the files there or paste new files in there. I cannot find the system folder when I connect the fascinate to a computer. I tried showing "hidden files" but the folders still would not show up.

What I want to do is add my downloaded ringtones into the system media folder so that I can use those ringtones without having those ringtones appear in my music player. Another post tried to deal with this issue of the music player recognizing ringtones and notification tones, but no one could provide an actual solution to the problem. If I could move ringtones from the media folder on the SD to card to the media folder in the system folder, this would solve the problem.

Can anybody access the system folders in a manner that I can add files to the folders.

EDITED: PROBLEM SOLVED.
With the help given below, I came up with a solution, and have pasted instructions directly below.
Here are the steps I did in case any one else is interested.


Once your phone is rooted, it's pretty simple.
1)Download Root Explorer from the Market. Root explorer will give you the ability to edit folders/files that normally can't be edited, ie read and write permission as opposed to read only.

2)Using Root Explorer (make sure in top left of program it says "mounted as r/w"), copy any ringtone, notification file, .ogg file, .mp3 file, etc that you have made or downloaded, by selecting sdcard folder and navigating to the location of your tones, long pressing the file of interest, and select copy. (You can even long press on the folder and copy the whole folder of tones).

3)Still using Root Explorer, back out of the SD folder, and find the folder called "system". Navigate to system/media/audio/"ringtones" or "notifications" . Click the paste button at the bottom of the screen (which should have appeared as soon as you copied your file/folder). The file/folder will now be in your system's tone folder.

4)You must power down and power back up your phone before the phone will recognize these newly added tones.

5)Either delete the tone files from your SD card, or put a .nomedia file into the folder to remove them from the SF's media player.

General :: TCP / IP Access To Windows 7 PC From Android Device Using USB Cable

Aug 14, 2013

Is it possible to have a TCP/IP access to Windows 7 PC from Android device (create a LAN between them) using just direct connection via USB cable, without wifi or bluetooth? I already have it working using wifi, but I am also interested in just USB cable way.

I do _not_ need to use PC's internet connection, I only want to access the PC itself. I want to access HTTP/FTP/SSH servers on the PC and its samba (Windows Network) shares via Android CifsManager app.

Is this possible using "reverse tethering" solution which is used to access PC's internet connectivity on Android device and uses some 3rd party app? Is there a simpler solution without using 3rd party apps? Is this possible somehow via adb?

My Android device uses Android 4.0.3 and is rooted. My Windows version is Windows 7 64-bit.

General :: Access Windows Shared Folders In Android

Mar 6, 2012

I've been searching for an app or a way to be able to access the shared folders of my desktop PC in my android mobile (Huawei U8650 not rooted) and my tablet (Acer A100 also not rooted).

I want to be able to watch my movies in the shared folders or read my ebooks like I do from my laptop.The PC is connected with a wifi rooter as all the rest devices. Since the laptops can access the shared files, I guess my android devices should also be able to do it... but how...?

General :: View PC Files Over USB On Android Like When Using Windows To View Droid Files

Jun 29, 2013

My searches all bring back ways to transfer files using my Windows Explorer on my PC Interface via USB and on Android "Es file explorer" using wifi.

I use ES file Explorer to view shared folders on my PC via wifi. I want to do the same thing only faster through USB. Similar to how you connect the android to your pc and it shows the internal sd and external sd in windows explorer.

For example... I want to browse my vast collection of "Justin Bieber's Monkey confiscated by German customs for excessive spanking" pics on my pc to find one that looks good as my android wallpaper. I dont want to use wifi and cant load the 74GB of pics from my pc on my 8 GB SD card on my Android to go through them.

General :: Run Exe Files For Windows (Desktop) PC On Android?

Apr 24, 2012

I would like to run .exe files for Windows (Desktop) PC on android.

I know most of you would say it's not possible, but I don't care if you say that. Everything is possible in this world. You just have to want it.

Most important reasons why it shouldn't work:

- EXEs are compiled for Windows
- CPU commands are different to the x86 processors
- WinAPI isn't available on Android

The application I want to run, will run on a couple of houndred of (Tablet) devices, a remote connection is not the way to go. The application is private, and not available on the market. There is no other application that could replace it.

Any VM for Android, or an other solution -> Performance doesn't matter!

For the beginning I want to try to run a small windows application, like notepad.exe on android devices. Besides of that there is also a way to run Win98 on Android. I havent tested it yet tho.

General :: How To Access Android File System

Sep 25, 2013

My objective is to create a text file in an android file system.

Using java language, I am creating an app. It has a screen with a table of 3columns. Each time a user enters the table row and click on Submit button, the row entry should be created as a separate comma-separated file on an android device. So each time when the table gets updated with new entry and clicks a submit button, a new file is getting created on the device file system. So I am looking for the file connectivity to the internal device memory where I could open the files and access it.

I have done the same in Nokia mobiles using J2ME. But for Android, I am not able to find the device file path.

Samsung Galaxy S : Recovery Boot Error - Can Not Access To /system/csc/VOD/system

Sep 4, 2010

Phone: UK Galaxy S Issue: Recovery boot error message in red writing

Multicsc : can not access to / system/csc/VOD/system/

Background: I have been trying to root my phone from information found in a youtube video. All went well and the little ninja bloke with the sniper rifle was in the app list. Tried installing busybox and was told that the phone was not rooted´┐Ż..

I think I ran the root application again and at some point I started getting this error message when in recovery. I have since run the one click root method to unroot the phone and the little nija dude is no longer there. Since I rooted the phone it will no longer connect to my wireless network, it finds the network and attempts to obtain an ip address. After a few min it times out and tries again. When I load the phone recovery the error message is still present.

General :: Why Can't Alter SU Binary To Have System Access Only Instead Of Root

Apr 30, 2014

Imagine a scenario where you have just system access on android , and you want to continually have it, so you use the su binary, with the correct permission and the setuid flag on, and the owner being system, you do:

Code:
chown 1000:1000 su2
chown 06755 su2

you have the ability to change the owner to system as you do when rooting, and you also set the appropriate permission as you do when rooting,

06775 being the permission code to all have execution permission, and the setuid flag on.

But when dealing with system permission that doesn't work. it only works with root.

General :: HTC Desire Z - Can't Access System Partition And Formatting Not Possible

Apr 3, 2014

HTC Desire Z (Vision). I S-OFFed how it's described on CM wiki. Latest radio. About month ago I installed CM 10.1 AlterNdromadus. It worked until yesterday, when it unfortunately installed some system update.

After that phone didn't booted anymore. In recovery it says, that it can't access system partition and formatting is not possible.

I tried connect the phone via fastboot in bootloader, but it also doesn't work. Under windows I have it as unknown device and when I tried manually install drivers from google, it says that they are not compatible with the HW (under ROM it worked before).

I tried also install stock RUU rom (extracted the zip and deleted H-BOOT, radio and recovery) from SD-card (PC10IMG.zip). But it also got frozen on system update.

Here you can see error from 4EXT recovery and CRC images from bootloader.

General :: Recompile System App From Java Files

Aug 20, 2013

I want to add some function to my system music player app. So I decompiled the classes.dex with dex2jar, copied the source code and add the code for my functions. Now my problem is that I do not know how to recompile the app. I can't compile it with Eclipse because it uses some system namespaces (in Eclipse it is an error so I can't compile) How can I recompile the app? I only have the *.java files.

Or can't I use the java files and have to edit the smali files? Of course that's much harder...

General :: HTC One - Permanently Rename System Files

Jul 31, 2013

I'm basically trying to rename an audio file to kill the camera click, but found an issue that might give me problems later with other things I might want to do.

Each time I try renaming the file, the file renames itself back to its original name after I reboot the phone. For example, if I add .bak or an extra space in the file name, it disappears once I reboot.

I'm using ES File Explorer on my stock, rooted Sprint HTC One. I mounted the /system path as R/W, and the file is /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg.

General :: System Files To Sync With YouTube?

Jul 8, 2012

I have a DOMO Slate N9 SE tablet running on ICS 4.0.3. Everything is working fine but I cannot sign in to YouTube.When I click on YouTube for the first time, it crashes saying 'Unfortunately Android System has stopped' and the next time it gets stuck on 'Signing in'. If I clear data, again it says 'Unfortunately Android System has stopped' and then keeps on getting stuck at signing in.

But when I use applications like Opera Mini and Flipboard and load a video, the YouTube app opens and runs the video. When I click on 'like' to like that video, I get a pop-up screen asking me to log in using my Google account. When I click on it, I get the same error, 'Unfortunately Android System has stopped'.

I think there are system files missing in the device. The ICS ROM did not even have CalendarSyncAdapter.apk and I had to manually install it. So I think even the YouTube error is due to some missing system files.I have tried several other versions of YouTube app too but I get the same error.

General :: How To Gain Root Access If Busybox And System App Is Already Installed

Oct 11, 2013

I have a Rockchip RK3188 Tablet with Android 4.2.2, which I need to root ON DEVICE. Actually, the device was already rooted (using a Laptop via the adb bridge), so I already have busybox installed and I have one of my own apps in /system/app. However I managed to delete the su program (yeah great!) and therefore don't have root access any more. I know I can easily root the device again if I connect it to my laptop again, but that is not possible, because the device is at my parent's place and I can't go over there any time soon.

Therefore I want to root the device just with an app. Actually I would only need to copy su to /system/xbin. These are the things I already tried (without success):Framaroot (doesn't work, because framaroot does not support Rockchip tablets)

Writing my own app, which contains su in the assets and using this su for temporary root

Using adb (on the device) for a local connection (adb connect localhost), because if I connect from my PC I automatically have root (doesn't work because Android 4.2.2 has increased security on adb)

Start telnetd via busybox and then execute my commands via nc (doesn't work, because I can't start telnetd in a way that it ends up with a root shell)

My last idea is, that I could maybe gain temporary root access with the app I already have in /system/app. Basically this would be similar to the Master Key Exploit, except that I do not have to fiddle around with the apk and instead install it normally. However I don't know how to continue from that point. I know, I have special permissions if I have an app in /system/app, but which permissions are that? And how can I use those permissions to make /system writeable (and copy my su file there)?

General :: ADB Can't Open Files From Folder Used In System Variables

Feb 13, 2014

I have installed ADB and the whole Android SDK to root my asus transformer infinity (tf700t). I have taken all the steps every forum on the web describes: installing everything trough the manager, adjusting the path in the System Variables, and finally it getting it to work together with my tablet. However, when I try to flash/copy/install files from my folder (yes these files are in the same folder as adb.exe and fastboot.exe, which is the folder I used in the System Variables) It can't either find these files or it cannot open these files. When i put in the command 'path' however. I does give me the path where the files can be found.
