I want to edit my system folder, mainly because I want to edit the hosts file. However I just can't seem to get it to work. I'm on a rooted legend with paul's stock froyo rom & used his rooting guide.
What I tried:
Root explorer. Doesn't work, gives a error of not enough free space whenever I want to copy a file. Also deleting doesn't actually really work because after a reboot files just return.
adb shell: Just keeps giving me errors like cp: not found, wget: not found, push: not found etc. Or when i'm in the folder and want to do something directory is not empty.
Terminal app: Same errors.
So I googled and it seems adb sucks and you need busybox. So I download titanium backup and have it install busybox. Boot root and busybox are OK. Still same errors.
I'm doing thing while the phone is fully booted. I also tried from recovery mode (traingle screen) but than I can't get adb to connect.
What am I doing wrong or how can I fix this? There seem to be tons of people who can do this no problem and got all the commands working even without intstalling additional software. It seems my craptatstic Legend is the only one that doesn't want to play ball...
