Default Busybox working for Droid Explorer on PC

if you are rooted try this out.

Step 1) download busybox binary to your adb tools directory

Step 2) cd to your adb tools directory

Step 3) adb push busybox /data/local/busybox

Step 4) adb shell

Step 5) cd /data/local

Step 6) chmod 755 busybox

Step 7) ./busybox

(just to test to make sure its there)

now to have this run so droid explorer and detect your phone and so you can use busybox (ie so its in your PATH) run this.

Step 8) mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

Step 9) /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin

Step 10) mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

Step 11) sync

Step 12) reboot

You're not root. Do a su before doing the mount thing.

Has anybody been able to use DroidExplorer with Motorola Droid successfully? I have been able to install busyBox, but DroidExplorer does not work. I want to use the screencast app but that fails too.

Does anybody know of any other app like screencast that cud be used with Motorola Droid?

Default android screencast on motorola droid

Has anybody found any luck in using DroidExplorer with motorola droid in its entirety? I'd like to use Android Screencast utility, but seems like the dev on it has been halted. I'm interested in similar utilities if they are available and am ready to pay for them as well.

Just downloaded DroidExplorer, but it won't install. Seems like it is almost done, then backs out of the install and gives me an error. Tried going back to the download site, but they are currently under maintenance. O joy.

Any suggestions?

Default Proxy settings?

Does your machine require a proxy server to access internet?

It happened to me when i tried installing droidExplorer on a machine that uses a proxy to access internet (work computer). Installed fine on my home machine (non proxy setup).
