    ok so when i type in:
    adb shell
    su
    id
    it gives me this:
    vid=2000(shell) gid=2000(shell) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log)1011(adb),3001(net_bt_admin),3002(net_bt),3003(inet)

    No, you are not root. uid=0 if you have root.



    Try this line, instead of just su:
    /data/local/try3 /system/bin/sh
