Nexus 7 tablet calls it's sync cable an OTG cable

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=OTG+cable

I wonder if there is any real differences between the cables??

The website I refered to above said that most tablets now
use an OTG cable and here's how it's made ---> Grounding of two terminals

I said previously that adb failed to detect my android device. This was from Puppy 5.2.5 (Lucid Puppy).
From Puppy 5.4.1, adb succeeds to detect my phone. This is obtained with a standard USB cable and with a pristine Puppy, so without java I guess. Fine!

However, /system is always mounted read-only.
Code:
./adb shell /data/local/tmp/busybox mount -o remount,rw /system
says I can't do this because I'm not root (I'm root on Puppy but not on the phone).

Does somebody know how to deal with this on android 2.3.6? I suppose the problem is related to the android version rather than the hardware by itself.

Thank's

Yes the Android version is important!!

I checked if Java or the Jave development kit (JDK) is needed.

It looks like they aren't needed. Just installing adb application
was good enough.

By the way you should put adb in an executable path so you can
use just 'adb' in the terminal rather than './adb'

Here is the output of my terminal program

Code:

# adb shell ls /mnt
asec
extsd
obb
sdcard
secure
usbhost1



# adb shell ls /
acct
cache
config
d
data
default.prop
dev
etc
init
init.goldfish.rc
init.rc
init.sun5i.rc
init.sun5i.usb.rc
initlogo.rle
mnt
oem
proc
root
sbin
sdcard
sys
system
ueventd.goldfish.rc
ueventd.rc
ueventd.sun5i.rc
vendor


 # adb shell ls /etc/
3g_dongle.cfg
NOTICE.html.gz
apns-conf.xml
audio_effects.conf
bluetooth
camera.cfg
camera_back.cfg
camera_dou.cfg
dbus.conf
dhcpcd
event-log-tags
fallback_fonts.xml
gps
gps.conf
hosts
init.goldfish.sh
media_profiles.xml
mkshrc
permissions
ppp
security
system_fonts.xml
usb_modeswitch.d
usb_modeswitch.sh
vold.fstab

Hi don570

A little OT (I did mangae to root my 'droid though Wink )

There is a really cool app for accessing droids through any capable web browser. airdroid. Just requires your droid is on the same LAN. It works great in Puppy. Just be aware though that it is still in beta, some features hang, requiring a logout, login. Not a big deal.

Cheers

Would this also work on a SonyEricson smartphone?
I don't have tablet only Smartphone and
what about a Huawei smartphone?

Could my android be too old though? I have not tested
B/C I am too afraid to brick them Smile

Thanks plume
http://www.airdroid.com/

they say

Transfer files to and from your device via web browser.
Wireless operation via WiFi connection.

That would allow us to bring over a file that can root it then hopefully?
Looks promising indeed.

We can do a lot of things with Airdroid, such:
- look at our photos,
- listen to our music,
- look at our contacts or add new contacts,
- look at the call log,
- look at our messages or send new ones,
- browse the files on the smartphone, download them or upload other files from the PC.
But I'm not able to upload files in "System" and I'm afraid Airdroid can't help rooting the device if this was your idea.

I had my second nasty black screen incident with
my Android device. I now see why people complaing that
Android isn't as stable as Linux.

Cause: installing latest version of FBReader from external SDcard ???

Fix: remove external SD card . This allowed booting to proceed.

Then I went thru rooting procedure as described on first page.

I put back external SD card and everything is fine.

I discovered that Superuser.apk is confusing to use
because it is actually a commercial program. The writer
is trying to sell a different program named 'Elite'. This confuses
the interface greatly

Here are instructions to use the Superuser apk with ES File Explorer.

First launch 'ES File Explorer' and look under 'Settings'
Make sure 'Up to root' is ticked.




Next launch Superuser app (It has an icon). Somehow??? it
knows that 'ES File Explorer' is installed and can be given root access.



Note: screenshots were taken using this method

The newest version of ES File Explorer (es_file_explorer_v1.6.2.4.apk)
that came out before Christmas has fixed a bug with 'Root Explorer'.

Under 'Settings' there is 'Root Settings' which allows 'Root Explorer'
which works now for me. Android version 4.04

First of all sorry for replying in this old thread.

My problem is whenever I try to use adb command, It says permission denied? How can I fix it? Thank you.. And do I need particular drivers for my phone? so puppy will recognize my phone?
