(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
