[Q] changing hostname
I'm new to Android, so please bear with me. I just recently picked up a Nexus 4 to play with. It came with 4.2 on it, and I have done the OTA updates to 4.3 and then 4.4. I decided to root the device and followed the instructions here
. That all seems to work OK and I can get root using adb.
The first thing I tried to do next was change the hostname from android-something to a hostname that I could remember. I did a bunch of searching here and found the following commands suggested:
If I run these commands, the hostname changes. The problem is once I reboot, the name is back to what it was originally. I even tried remounting /system as rw, as I saw in some other post, and running the command again like this:
mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /system
setprop net.hostname NEWNAME
mount -o remount,ro -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /system
I tried rebooting after that and the name change still doesn't stick. What am I doing wrong?
