chmod a+x e2fsck
Its to enable apps2sd. I want to get a little help of understanding how to apply it. I rooted my phone so I did a lot of edits in cmd promt...but for me it was just a matter of following instructions I want to learn what I am actually doing and how to fully take advantage of rooting my phone. I dont use terminal emulator or SU really for anything because I dont understand how to use them or even the full extent of what they can do. I know theres a wiki...but I really dont know what to search. As of now I have been having devs do everything for me to an extent. I use a kitchen which is pretty much automated and I have just been following instructions on the board.
Basically these commands are installing the e2fsck, a program that formats a partition in the ext2 file system, so that apps2sd can run.
Here is a breakdown:
adb shell remount --remount the file system of your phone so you can write a file to it
adb push e2fsck /system/bin --copy the file/program e2fsck to the directory /system/bin on the phone
adb shell --switch from your computer's shell (cmd) to control the shell environment of the phone
cd /system/bin --change directory to work in /system/bin
chmod a+x e2fsck --change the permissions of e2fsck so that you can actually execute (run) it
a2sd --run apps2sd (a2sd) so that it can set itself up (it will call on e2fsck)
reboot --reboot the phone.
Hope that's what you were looking for.
