    I was following a tutorial video in youtube to pull the android RAM using LiME tool...I installed jdk ,android studio and LiME in my ubuntu...I used a command - sudo ./adb pull /proc/config.gz .but I am getting an error message remote object '/proc/config.gz' does not exist...
    how can I resolve the problem.please help me.

    Try leaving out that ./ after sudo

    sudo adb pull /proc/config.gz

    Hmm, the OP's syntax looks right (to me) if the adb utility is in the current (present working directory) and it sounds like it really is the /proc/config.gz file doesn't exist vs. an issue with invoking adb itself.

    @mariyamjohn25, can you try this instead if @svim's suggestion doesn't work:

    ubuntu$ sudo ./adb shell
    $ ls -l /proc/config.gz
    $ ls -l -d /proc/config*
    $ exit

    That should show/display for you if the config.gz file actually exists in your /proc folder on your device. At the very least, it should tell us more about what is going on.

    Note: the above won't actually pull the file from your device, but will simply verify if the config.gz file exists on your device or not.

    Post back with a copy and paste of the results of the above and let us know.

    I have to wonder if that's necessary. In order to make ./adb work that is completely dependent on being in same directory as the adb binary. As long as adb was previously installed properly (i.e. /usr/bin) its path should enable it to just be started with just the adb command (sans ./)

    ^^^ Agreed :).

    I'm just going by the gist of the warning/message he reported that seems to indicate that adb successfully launched, but couldn't find the file to pull.

    I don't have access to my Linux PC at the moment to verify that this is what happens (i.e., bad adb file path vs. file not found, etc.), but I can try when I get home.

    @scary alien It seems like there is no such file or directory.I have also tried the location /boot/config...but this also showed the same error.How will I find the Kernel configuration file location?
