Ok - so I've been successful in applying the "barebones" root process (via slow PNY card), installed Superuser.apk, installed root req apps, etc. Superuser asks for permission when needed, in terminals I can "su" - all very cool. However, one of the "root" apps complained that busybox was not installed. Fair enough. TitaniumBackup will download 1.15.3 to a directory under /data/data and although I can execute it, it is not in my path. So I wanted to at least link it into /system/xbin. In older threads the /system partition is mounted read-only (and also on the Incredible). So, from a terminal program as root, I remounted /system as read-write and tried to do the appropriate copying/linking. However, I received an "out of memory" error when trying to link in the xbin directory, even though the partition was ostensibly mounted r/w. Another thread mentioned that you can only make changes to /system from adb recovery. I can get the Incredible back in this mode, but "adb shell" returns the good old "exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -" message. So my question is: is there a way to make little "tweaks" to the /system partition using an already rooted phone and terminal programs or must you go through adb recovery and "re-update" just to get to the point where you can "adb shell" to a working devices? Thanks in advance!
