Note to teddog : 'adb' doesn't need JAVA or flash to be installed
to obtain the basic commands like 'push' and 'pull'.
I did have to install the JDK(Java Development Kit)
to take a screenshot of Android device.

Note to esrom2: Puppy linux always runs as the root user so
you should never get the message 'permission not permitted'

Some linux apps don't like to run by the root user, but adb isn't one of them.

I wonder if your phone manufacturer has found some way of blocking
adb commands?? Android devices have ways of blocking viruses.
So maybe your phone thinks it's being attacked by a virus.

All I can suggest is use the latest version of adb and cross your fingers.

Here's a tutorial on using adb that might be of use.

Subject description: Puppy Linux 5.2.8 V4 with adb on my first generation Kindle Fire tablet
 

A comment on my use of adb:

I have been using Puppy Linux 5.2.8 V4 successfully with adb on my first generation Kindle Fire tablet.

I have used Puppy and adb to flash various recovery partition programs and Android Gingerbread and Jellybean ROMs designed for the first generation Kindle Fire via an ordinary micro USB cable.

(I've learned from the forums on xda-developers.com that, there is a forum for many of the different models of phone and tablet hardware. There may be user developed flashable ROMs and/or installable apk programs for many of the specific models there too.)

As don570 reported above, some of these phones or tablets require the normally unused pin 4 of the micro USB cable end to be grounded (in the case of the OTG ("On the Go") cable), but some other brands or model phones or tablets sometimes need the unused pin 4 of the micro USB cable end to be connected to the +5 volt wire with a current limiting resistor (these micro USB cables are called a "Factory Cable").
The xda-developers.com has lists of what cable is required for a specific model phone or tablet with adb or what cable is required for even resurrecting a "brick"!

Also I wanted to thank 01micko for mentioning the useful Android apk: airdroid.
As a newbie in the world of Android, I have found the sheer number of available apps (even just ones with four or five star reviews) to be overwhelming.

For my simple needs, I haven't wanted to go through an endless cycle of installing, trying and then un-installing hundreds of apps.

Thanks again don570 and 01micko.

Here's an interesting video on how to make
an OTG cable with a female end rather than
the normal male plug.

This is useful with Android tablets.

To buy a new cable is not expensive but few stores have this special
cable in stock.

It's possible to attach keyboards and USB sticks to nexus7

Here's a review..

5.0 out of 5 stars OTG good ta go!
This little cable lives up to it's name. Works fine on a rooted Nexus 7 combined with stickmount app to add much needed USB storage to the tablet. You can't go wrong for $6.00 free shipping. You just have to wait two weeks for it to get here from Hong Kong.


This is same cable (I believe)

To play downloaded flash videos without installing Flash itself
I found the following player works on recent Android tablets.

BSP v1.5.136 [4.0+].apk


However I found that mp4 videos were out of sync with audio,
but Android's builtin video player can handle mp4 fine.

I do not have an android device so I do not know if this is useful, but I can imagine that you would like to be able to test the rooting procedure before you do it on an expensive phone.

Here are several android iso's whch can be installed on a computer (or even within puppy in a virtual box environment)

http://www.android-x86.org/

the only annoting part when you want to make a puppy/android multiboot system is that Grub4DOS does not recognize the android, so you will have to go back to Grub (ideas for workarounds are welcome)

Have you tried a boot manager (such as plop) that will work with grub4dos?

grub4dos starts the boot process then plop puts a menu on screen
to choose what to do next.

PostPosted: Fri 16 Aug 2013, 14:04    Post subject: How to root Android device using ADB  

Has anybody figured out how to get over the error message that /system is Read Only?

I'm trying to root an HTC Wildfire S with Android 2.3.5 - a previous poster on this thread has done this, so it must be possible.

When I enter the commands to push Superuser.apk, etc., from /root on my Puppy laptop to /system on the phone, I get the message that /system is Read Only. I've searched, but can't find how to make /system Read/Write.

Anybody now how it's done?

Thanks
