Default Problem with Rom Manager (premium) permissions

I just downloaded Rom Manager + Premium, and I'm getting annoying errors. I'm trying to do a backup of my current Rom before I attempt to flash a new one, and I get "Error while dumping boot image!" even when trying the manual nandroid backup. When I try Fix Permissions from Rom Manager it also gives me a screen telling me "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands" I allowed the Rom Manager root access and I still get these errors. I currently have Bugless Beast 1.2 installed.

How do I fix these problems?

From what I seeing in the recent comments in the market, ROM Maneger is currently suffering few some growing pains, especially in the area of failed backups. I am sure with the fast pace the developer is updating it will be worked out soon. For now, I am going to stick with my current ROM until the dust settles.

Update: Koush just updated Clockwork Recovery to version 1.7.8.5 that is suppossed to fix the backup issuses. Try going back into ROM Manager and flash the new recovery. I am too tired to play with it now to test it...

Do I have to have 2.1 installed before I can use the Rom Manager to update to update to Bugless Beast 0.9?

No. Just make sure you do a full data wipe and do a backup first.

Sorry, I'm new to the Rom Manager, "full data wipe?" What does that mean? I've only updated roms with update.zip files in the past.

Just FYI...there is a security feature in RM now...i guess it was getting pirated. Not sure what your problem is but if pirated it will only show you the free stuff. Not sure if this is your case.

Marketplace. Should show up in search, if not, find ROM Manager (free) and choose "More by developer."

Ok, try this:

Search for Klaxon (an alarm clock app).
Click it, then select "View More Applications."

It should be listed there.

Try going into the market and do a search for "root" you should find rom manager and rom manager premium there.

I found a thread over at XDA, but I am not sure of your technical expertise level, and I want to make sure that this is, in fact, the right thread to be linking. Let me ask some folks to be sure, and I'll post back.

FWIW, fixing permissions w/ the newest version of NexFro does work. Well, it did for me, anyway. It didn't on the other FroYo ROMs I've tried.

Fixing permissions in ROM Manager or TiBu?

NM - I'm a ****. TiBu already worked, so it has to be in RM....

Sorry for my idiocy.

The fix permissions error is because there is not a copy of busybox in the proper place... If you have Titanium Backup installed it is a very easy fix...

go into Titanium Backup and hit fix problems, this will install a working version of busybox... However it will install it in the wrong spot for RM, use an app like Root Explorer to navigate to your /data/data/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup folder, the to the files folder.
There is a file there named busybox, copy it and then paste it in your /system/bin folder and you are good to go...

I don't know if CM will work on the Milestone... Not sure though, you would probably be better off asking in the Milestone forums it is a completely different phone then the Droid...

Maybe because it is called rom manager and not "RM premium"
Try searching for rom. It should pull it up.
And I really hope that everyone trying to flash new stuff with the rom manager are rooted already. It won't do it for you..
But on another note, I to am on froyo and the rom manager is giving me an error when I press fix permissions. But I was thinking that maybe that feature is for 2.1 roms ATM.

I am using a Froyo build on my phone and had the same issue with the error in ROM Manager. Please follow ska.t73's instructions above to install a working version of busybox into your /system/bin folder and try it. This fixed it for me. Permissions fixed...

I have the latest version of ROM Manager (Premium) and Titanium Backup (Free), and I am unabled to download busybox via the problems button in Titanium. I am completely sure I have root access because i have the ninja. I have no idea why this won't work and I'm hoping someone can help.

Hey guys/gals. I'm a bit new to the forum and this whole "rooting" business on the Droid, but I think I have a bit of helpful info to offer.

I fixed this issue by simply powering down my phone and powering it on again. This time when I selected "Flash ClockwordMod Recovery" I was met with a dialog box. I checked "remember" and tapped "allow."

Boom! Success. Hope it helps!

In the top right corner of Root Explorer, it shows R/O (read only). Tap it once, and the system changes to R/W (Read Write)

that did nothing for me!!! I have titanium back up and also root explorer and copied and pasted the folder into system/bin and i even uninstalled RM as well as cleared the cache, nothing still I have issues not being resolved because of this... any other suggestions, besides contacting Rom Manager itself

Default an error occurred while attempting to run privileged command

I found a fix for this for anybody having this problem in the future. Turns out that using easyroot was my problem. Somehow, the stock boot-loader was taking over and the phone was rooted but superuser permissions were blocked.

ANSWER:
Re-root your phone manually.


Credit goes to the poster that linked me to the fix:

go into Titanium Backup and hit fix problems, this will install a working version of busybox... However it will install it in the wrong spot for RM, use an app like Root Explorer to navigate to your /data/data/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup folder, the to the files folder.
There is a file there named busybox, copy it and then paste it in your /system/bin folder and you are good to go...
I was having this exact same issue today after I rooted my NS4G. I did exactly as you said and was able to use Rom Manager. Thanks for the post.

Default Fix Permissions

I just went to the market and downloaded busybox free version and now the fix permissions works in Rom Manager.
