Can Fix Perm be safely run from Rom Manager if we are rooted with Bootstrap etc?
i've ran it a few times without issues so far
Did it do anything?
I dont get any errors if thats what you mean. I see it fixing over 200 things. I do it every so often out of habit that I did on the droid.
What does fixing permissions do?
Fixing permissions as far as I know fixes problems often associated with Force Close errors. When files updated or written by the Android OS they are often written so you can for example read only. The files are changed to 755 access which allows you to read, execute, and write to the file. This can clear any problems programs have when accessing files. This is how I am perceiving it and may not be correct. Its what I know from my unix/linux noob days. Someone with more knowledge can come enlighten us.
I know about permissions in linux, I was just curious about what about the default permissions in android needed to be changed. If it's fixes force closes I don't care though! Sounds good
Maybe someone can explain further as to why permissions would need to be "fixed" and also, what app is allowing you to do it? I can only do it through CWR.
I use Rom Manager which I hope Koush updates for the Bionic so we can use that for recovery purposes.
Dumb question, but what are you guys using for screen shots these days? I used to use drocap2, but it appears that it is no longer available in the market. I stopped using a separate app since CM7 had it built in on the Thunderbolt.
Thanks in advance...
I still use drocap2. Are you sure it's not in the Market? Maybe I just had a backup in TiBu Pro. I have a habit of archiving stuff.
Here is a link to one called screen shot.
and one for drocap2
Hm...that's drocap2 on my Bionic >.>...got it right off the market...
I "may" have it on my computer in one of my backup folders... But no, it doesn't appear to be in the market any longer (at least I can't find it). Can someone link to it?
ya i cant seem to find it on the market now
Thanks for checking. I'll go through my backup folders when I get home...
Look up a couple of posts...^^^^^^
a link to drocap2 and another called screen shot
Awesome! Thanks! Going with Drocap2 as I used it for my OG and DX and I'm completely comfortable with it...
Well if you were like me, you were spelling in wrong.
It's DROCAP not DROPCAP.
