I'm new here and this is my first thread, so I hope I've chosen the correct section for my issue.
I have a sony ericsson xperia x10 mini pro and wanted to gain root access. I managed it so far and made some manipulations within the /system/ directory and due to some mental black-out I made a 'chmod 700 /system/' which now causes my device to fail on each boot. Also just connecting my phone with a computer gives the output of the white sony ericsson label followed by a rebooting, without showing the battary loading screen.
Using adb I have only a few seconds of access to the device and I wanted to change the rights of /system/ to some reasonable values. Unfortunately running 'adb shell' gives:
- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: Permission denied (13) -
so I downloaded adb plus some other stuff following this description android.serverbox.ch/?p=1217. I replaced each and every occurance of /system/bin/sh to /bin/sh in order to call a different shell which I might have read access but still the same error as above occurs, also stating /system/bin/sh instead of /bin/sh.
Does somebody of you have an idea on how I can gain access and change the permissions or how I can completely reset the phone?
Thanks and cheers
