    Hellow guys.. Can some one explain in human words and language whats fixing permission on android means and what does it do?? I know sometimes it is recommended to fix permission i can be done with rom manager but before i do something i need to know first what im doing ... A good, nice, well explained, and knowledgeable answer will be helpful for many of us. Thanks a lot.

    I managed to find a pretty decent explanation of the process over at http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/510022-fix-permissions.html:

    Hope that helps :)

    PS - I'm also moving your thread into a forum for general Android discussion. Maybe some other nerds will be able to chime in with some additional information :thumbup:

    I don't understand why clockwork removed the option from cwm and put it in ROM Manager :thinking:

    It was way easier in recovery to fix permissions right after installing an update for a nightly rom .. But now have to download all my apps install rom manager..and then fix... But still a nice tool tho,.. Also i wish they could put back in cwm the option to wipe battery stats.
