Default adb and galaxy

Hi

Im trying to access system files on my galaxy using adb.
i connected the phone in debugging mode, installed all the drivers (including the adb driver - thanks kam187), and running the following commands:
adb devices - lists my galaxy
(List of devices attached
I7500PTs4k0ONMD device)
adb remount - i get an error
(remount failed: Operation not permitted)
adb root - i get an error
(adbd cannot run as root in production builds)

im using the adb.exe from the sdk 1.5 rel 3

what am i doing wrong?

thanks! im really glad i joined this forum, it seems great!

adb remount and adb root are protected commands and need either a rooted kernel or a flashed recovery model to run
if you flash the recovery 4.2 then you can run adb commands while booted in recovery mode.
if you are wanting a rooted kernel then you will need to modify a system image and flash it on the device or use Galaxo from hdblog.it that is also linked in the faq's

thanks for the reply
i forgot to mention i rooted my device using the instructions at hdblog.it ... flashed the image (but stayed with the original rom, and didnt update my firmware, if its relevant)

so i can do it only in recovery mode?

If you flashed the recovery you can use 'enable su' from recovery mode to root your stock rom. adb remount probably wont work tho because its not setup to open a root shell by default. Instead you can do

# open a shell
adb shell

# switch to root
su

# check you're root? it should return uid=0
id

# now you can remount as read/write if you like
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
