    Could someone connect to their phone and do a `ls -l /system/bin/insmod` or `ls -l /system/bin/toolbox` who does not have root?

    Could someone connect to their phone with the sdk and run a shell and execute either of those commands. That is assuming one can connect to their phone with shell and not be rooted.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    Sorry I left that off, it will list the file permissions for the file /system/bin/insmod or toolkit. ls is a standard command on any unix system. The file in question is for loading kernel modules and I haven't found online a clear answer for if a non rooted user can execute that command. I have read varying notes that android has loadable models enabled but other thats say you can't load the modules so I am seeing if the command is even executable by not root users.

    If I'm not mistaken, you have to be rooted to even mount the system to access it in adb shell. So this would not be possible on a non-rooted Dinc.

    Thanks for the replies. I guess I could have searched for terminal emulator and saved you guys tye trouble, but thanks for the help. Now it's time to write an application and see if that works :)
