    You wont actually have to mount the system because for some reason after (possibly even before) rooting your phone defaults to rw. Not a good thing at all so it would be a good thing for anyone concerned to mount system as ro upon booting.

    adb shell mount

    you will get ----> /dev/block/stl9 on /system type rfs (rw.....

    adb shell mount -t rfs -o remount,ro /dev/block/stl9 /system

    you will get ----> /dev/block/stl9 on /system type rfs (ro.....

    I've flashed voodoo, roms, etc.... How do you get back to stock on the Fascinate?

    if you want to get to total stock unrooted.....

    and assuming you've disabled voodooo....

    Odin Restore files to get you to stock - xda-developers

    its odin time. if you are on DJ05, then push the DI01 modem....then.....

    push the pit/system together.....then just kernel...then just stock recovery

    then you can unroot with the method above. should take 10 minutes tops as long as you have all the files

    Oh you have to disable voodoo. Ill have to look around and find out how to do that

    if you are running new voodoo you can either create a disable_lagfix file in your sdcard/voodoo or boot into voodoo cwr from the power button and do it there under voodoo

    i flashed a whatever the latest voodoo kernel was in rom manager. is that unvoodooable? lol

    On a side note, I have found that flashing stuff on this phone just isn't as enjoyable as others. I can't really pinpoint exactly why that is, I'm just not having much fun :( anymore. I can't wait until they set up my X for work. So I can get back to my baby!

    The Tom manager ones are actually di01 kernels so the can still be disabled by the file method....the adryn unistaller.....or adb.....as long as you don't have dj05 voodoo recovery

    After doing a disable_lagfix how do you go about getting rid of the leftover files. Where are they all located ?
  12. nitsuj17

    nitsuj17 Android Expert

    After disable flash a non voodoo kernel and then delete the disable file. ....you Don't really need to do anything else

    Can someone explain to me exactly what all of this means? I assume that su is Superuser, after that, I am all blanks.
  15. nitsuj17

    nitsuj17 Android Expert

    if you are using adb/powershell...cd your android tools folder (ie cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools)

    adb shell (enter)

    #su (then follow the code)

    in terminal emulator skip the adb shell stuff and just start with su

    basically your mounting the system and getting rid of superuser

    Anyone know why Adb wont stay open?
  18. nitsuj17

    nitsuj17 Android Expert

    are you trying to open it by clicking on adb.exe in the tools folder? if thats the case, you cant :eek:

    open a terminal...either powershell or cmd and navigate to your tools folder (where adb is)

    or if its a terminal that wont stay open...reboot your comp or kill adb.exe

    I knew I could count on you for better explanation, adb is not my big thing I just know what I've read from adryn. Just enough to save my butt if needed ;)

    When I navigate to Adb.exe from inside CMD, it gives me a list of options, then kicks it back to default cmd. Pic is what I am looking at right now.

    have you used it successfully before and this is a first time thing?

    or did you just install the 2.3 sdk
  22. GabrielRayven

    GabrielRayven Member

    This is a first time thing. I am going to give this a pause though as I have an interesting development.
  23. nitsuj17

    nitsuj17 Android Expert

    ah...well in 2.3 sdk adb is moved to platform-tools....for my own sanity i moved all the adb files (there are 3 if i recall) back into my tools folder as i was so used to it....your directory you d go to depends on where you have adb
