ADB and Path Not Issue - Maybe Permissions????
I've really appreciated the advice to changing the environment path to try and resolve my issue of my I605 not getting root.
I did that and verified that adb was recognized by my Windows 8.1 system. Also ran the adb device command and verified the device was recognized. Ran GhettoRoot again. Got exactly the same result - GhettoRoot does something to the Note II device (I get the Knox and Syscope error messages again) but doesn't root.
So I think maybe there is a issue on the Windows machine - so I move AndroidSKD and GhettoRoot_v0.3.2 to the C:root on my windows machine (had them on the desktop). Again, change the path variable, verify that adb is recognized by windows and recognizes my device. Run GhettoRoot again. Same result - the same massive list of "unable to chmod," "no such file or directory," and "unable to chown." And I did run Root Checker - it confirmed what I knew SU-not found; Root Access - no access.
I'm about to the point of saying this isn't worth it since I now have to do my third ODIN back to stock to get rid of the "Knox stopped" and "Syscope stopped" error messages - but since I hate unsolved puzzles, could the problem be one of permissions on my Windows machine or on my I605 device? Just doesn't make any sense that adb is recognized on the windows machine and adb recognizes the I605 device and does something to it (creating error messages with Knox and Syscope) - yet the adb process cannot find files and take ownership.
Any other puzzle solvers who want to take a final shot (for me at least) at this?

Thanks for the answer !
I thought the problems might be related to the path. Any ideas why some of us were able to run GhettoRoot "out of the box" and some of us can not.
I think if they install SDK ADT Bundle For Windows properly and run adb.exe at least once afterwards their computer will be able to find the path on it's own.

I recommend the whole video but at 16:36 he tells you how to open the adb command window. Once you have it open type in "adb devices" hit enter and it will show you a list of devices connected. Your phone should be there.[/QUOTE]
