    I saw this on the web earlier:

    adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

    Could this make a difference?

    Hi. I don't know if I'm hosed or not. Instead of waiting for instructions on how to do a nandroid backup, I downloaded Titanium Backup, and backed up only the AT&T crapware to my SD card. I then deleted the crapware from /system.

    Now that amingv was kind enough to do a step-by-step howto on nandroid, I decided to reinstall the deleted crapware using Titanium. Here's what I did:

    1. Went to menu . . . filters and selected Backed up and Uninst and hit "Apply"
    2. The deleted crapware is listed with lines through it.
    3. Went to menu . . . batch and have tried "Run" for Restore missing apps with data and restore all apps with data (both of which show 13 programs, which is accurate)
    4. After pressing "Run" and "Run the batch operation", a message from Titanium in the status bar almost immediately reports that the operation is done.
    5. I'm automatically returned to the Backup/Restore screen and the crapware is still lined through.
    6. I've rebooted the phone and checked for the crapware in the "drawer" and it isn't there.

    Obviously I'm missing something. Any help will be much appreciated!

    Thanks, mojohn

    watatek: you'll still need superuser/root access to chmod something.

    mojohn: you can manually copy the deleted stuff back to /system/apps using adb. You'll have to mount the filesystem read/write temporarily to copy them over. At your pc's command prompt type: adb remount
    then you can adb shell and copy the apk's over manually that you deleted. this saved me when I tried getting rid of motoblur... DON'T try that at home! or on the road!

    I've unchecked root rights for Root Explorer and Terminal Emulator.
    I've uninstalled Root Explorer, Opened Terminal Emulator with su and allowed root access again.
    So far no dice.

    Dbagjones, I rooted my phone at work, which runs WinXP. I'm at home, running Ubuntu 10.04. Downloaded the android-sdk, and opened a terminal in the tools subfolder. I entered adb remount and received the following message: "No command 'adb' found, did you mean:" followed by a bunch of other commands. I also tried adb shell and got the same message. I know I'm missing something, but not sure what. BTW, I checked and adb is executable.

    Can you (or others) help?

    mojohn

    I'm not familiar with doing all this from Linux, I did mine on Win 7. Not sure if this will help you, but you can check here: ModMyMobile Forums - View Single Post - Intro to Nandroid??

    Thanks for the link Dbagjones.
    I can still go to the terminal emulator on the phone and get the #prompt from su.
    I switch back to the pc, open adb shell>su and while typing a line, in about 2 seconds I get permission denied.
    Is my rooting probably corrupted?
