Mkdir is an adb command to make a directory, no? It isn't an app or a file.

When you type adb shell what prompt do you get?

Here's my suggestion:

Open command window
Change your path to the correct directory on your PC
Connect tablet, with USB debugging enabled
Type adb devices
Verify communication by the response from adb
Type adb shell
Should return #
Type mkdir blah blah
Continue with the script

Or I could be wrong.

not set the permissions 777
I can not set the permissions 777. line 47 (in run.bat script)
adb shell “echo \”/system/bin/chmod 777 /cache\” >> /tmp/recovery.log”
/cache = root root drwxr-xr-x
what ideas?
adb shell “echo \”/system/bin/chmod 4777 /cache/recovery/pwn/su\” >> /tmp/recovery.log”
in line 54 – rule (4777) or (777)?
number of my building …A310_02_0039_0089_ROW.
