    How do I get in the adb shell mode? newbie

    OK...someone rooted my phone for me and I am trying fix something on my DINC to fix an issue of an app not working..

    The person helping me asked? (below)


    -----------It might be the case that you don't have the sqlite3 binary on your system. Please try the following:
    adb shell
    sqlite3
    ls /system/xbin/sq*

    -----------

    How do I get to the mode...is this something I can do on my phone since it is rooted? PLEASE, please do not say I have to do the loop thingy...it took a min for the guy to get my phone to get the directory he was looking for to do the root...not sure if I can do that...well I might..

    anyway how do I execute what he is asking me above?

    Help

    I can't be much help because I have not rooted yet, but what he is telling you to do is sync ur phone up to ur computer and open cmd.exe and change directories to ur androidsdk\tools folder then type those commands

    parcou: from what I can gather, this is what they want you to do.

    1. have phone on and booted up.
    2. plug in usb cable
    3. open a command window(START > RUN > cmd(as administrator))
    4. in the command window type the following:
    adb shell --> you should be looking at a $ prompt in the command window
    5. then run these two commands:
    sqlite3
    ls /system/xbin/sq*


    be careful, and good luck!

    Thx was able to get there but I got file or directory not found. The person specifically stated turn off phone and go into recovery mode....would this make a difference...? Am I in recovery mode from the steps you provided?

    nope, you were using the adb shell.
    to get to recovery you should be able to get the using steps 1 - 4 and then use the command adb reboot recovery

    then you should be at recovery.

    Good advice but I get permission denied although rooted and with superuser installed if that means anything....any other tricks :-)

    Parcou, nope, sorry. I would now say you have to see the person that rooted your phone. Good Luck though!
