    That is correct. The $ tells you that ADB is working and detects your phone.

    I forgot about not being able to paste into the shell on a PC.

    JCase listed them as one command for copy and paste reasons. Yo'll have to type and enter them separately.

    I typed the first line and hit enter and it says failed...file exists

    should I type both commands on same line, no space before I hit enter?

    Nah. Go ahead to the second line/command, type and enter it.

    That's OK. That's normal for this process. I think if you hit your "up" arrow key it will repeat your last command. Try it again.

    OK....let me look.

    It will be best to start over. If your phone still has the menu open click disable on it.

    I would start with a new shell also.

    Hmmm? I just tested the copy and paste function into shell on my PC. It works with the right-clicking of the mouse on mine. That would greatly speed up the process.

    OK..maybe we're still on track then.

    Next two commands. Hit 'enter' after each one:


    rm /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt

    ln -s /data/local.prop /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt

    Try the previous command again followed by the 'failed' command again..

    rm /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt

    ln -s /data/local.prop /data/local/logs/kernel/log_kernel.txt


    Were you able to do the copy and paste thing?

    Not at all....but I may have to pick it back up tomorrow......or er...today. Heh heh.

    But I'll wait to hear how it's going. When it works correctly, it doesn't take long at all.
