    It requires root and as you know I'm waiting with that until later...
    But on xda there are only one failure as I can tell by the time I posted.

    I'm trying to get hold of SwitchPro, but using the modified Market app made no difference - it still can't find it. :(

    Thanks, but it just links to the market, and it still can't find the app. It's very strange!

    i've been trying to get this to work, but everything I try, I ended up basically coming to the same conclusion that I have the wrong permissions, but cannot work out how to sort it.

    I've tried all of the suggestions throughout the xda thread but it's not working still I come back with "permissions denied"

    I have tried
    adb shell mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /systembut get the error "mount : Operation not permitted"

    Any suggestions? (I am definitely rooted by the way!)

    All I have amanged to do so far is pull the original vending.apk to my pc to back it up :eek:

    Ok, I'm not sure why you don't have permissions but are you root?
    Yes you've rooted your phone but are you using the root account to make the changes?

    You're supposed to do this:

    On your computer, open the shell (windows+r, enter cmd and press enter)
    Navigate to the folder where you have adb
    give the command "adb shell" (without the ") and press enter.
    Now, to get root, you'll give the command "su" (again withouth the ") and press enter.

    Now you cant try your mount command again.
    If it still fails, look for typos.

    The mtdblock3 is for the tattoo, I guess you'll need to use mtdblock0 for the x10 mini.

    thanks for replying, still no joy... this is what I have copied from cmd.exe :

    Code (Text):
    1. c:\android_root>adb shell
    2. $ su
    3. su
    4. # mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system
    5. mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system
    6. # exit
    7. exit
    8. $ exit
    9. exit
    10.  
    11. c:\android_root>adb push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/Vending.apk
    12. failed to copy 'Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk' to '/system/app/Vending.apk': Permission denied

    Why do you exit the root shell before you try to copy the new apk?
    What you're doing is open up a door with the key, go inside and open a closet which you want to put something into, but instead of putting it there you go outside again before you try to put it in the closet. Doesn't make sense :)

    So...

    after you have mounted the system and before you type exit, you're supposed to give the adb push.... command... and THEN you can exit.

    Hm, I think you're close now.

    Try this

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system
    push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/Vending.apk

    As you can see, no need for the "adb" command in the last commando there, as you're already inside the adb shell.

    Sorry, I haven't got root on my phone so I can't test this on my own.

    8. push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/Vending.apk
    9. push: not found
    maybe I just shouldn't bother .. ;)

    Sorry, I can't help you any further since I don't have root on my phone.
    The best tips would be to head over to the xda thread and ask for help there.

    One last effort...
    Have you tried the adb push.... without doing the rename the same time?

    adb push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/

    you can rename it later (or, according to the xda thread it's not needed)
