I have my Polaris NAND flashed with 2.6.25 kernel + casacristo's RLS18 ROM.
I have updated from the market the Superuser but now I get the pessage that SU is not updated and to download the new one (3.0.3.2).

I download the new one , the Root access is granted but at the end more or less I receive this message translated from italian:
...
...
md5sum ... OK
Mod file su 06755... OK
Moving su to its final position ... failed...

TRY Again

I tryed several times but ... no chance to update it... how can I manage ?

It worked great. I managed with RootExplorer but it can be done also via FTP with Filezilla.

Thanks

file permissions doesn't work
Hi,

I use a HTC wildfire S, who have been rooted, but still in original ROM.

My SU doesn't want to be updated, as described in the first post.

So I downloaded the ZIP, and put SU on the sdcard. With ROOT BROWSER I copy it on /system/bin (SU have been copied automaticaly in /system/xbin).

I tried to change the permissions files, but after reboot, permissions are ---rwxr-x.

I tried with ADB. My phone is well recognised :

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb devices
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
SH191TR05136 device

When I tried to change permissions file SU :

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
$ chmod 6755 /system/bin/su
chmod 6755 /system/bin/su
Unable to chmod /system/bin/su: Read-only file system
$ chmod 6755 /mnt/sdcard/temp/su
chmod 6755 /mnt/sdcard/temp/su
Unable to chmod /mnt/sdcard/temp/su: Operation not permitted
$ chmod 755 /mnt/sdcard/temp/su
chmod 755 /mnt/sdcard/temp/su
Unable to chmod /mnt/sdcard/temp/su: Operation not permitted
$

Do you have an idea ? Thanks by advance, because right now, my phone is not still root...

I have no idea about how ROOT BROWSER works.
With RootExplorer you can tap the su file and keep it untill the permission window appear. At that point you can change all the file rights.

Another way for doing it is via FTP by using SwiFTP.

ciao

Root browser seems to work the same way.

How can you use FTP with a phone ? It's suppose to use an IP adress. But by USB, there is not... But I will,l try asap.

However, my apps couldn't take root permissions, so I feel bad...

Use SwiFTP (it should be free from the market).
It works over Wireless connection to your internal WLAN and provide you with an FTP address like 192.160.0.x.

While you are connected through FTP client (like Filezilla), you can see your mobile File System as well as your SD.

with a right click on the su file you can change your rights.

But I do not know if it works even if you are not rooted...

I solved my problem my re-rooting my phone, using http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...9&d=1312136127.

My phone says that the binary SU was obsolete, but when I tried "AGAIN" to update it, it was successful that time.

Strange, I don't understand why now the update was ok. But all is right.

Thanks everyone for the help.
