Hello,

I'm using Motorola Milestone 2 A953 (Android 2.2)

I used z4root to root it. Successfully.

I am trying to follow the tutorial "How to Import a Private Root Certificate to an Android Device to be Used with Citrix Receiver for Android" (http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX125431).

/system is already mounted as following:

c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools> adb shell
$ su
# mount
/dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system ext3 rw,relatime,barrier=1,data=ordered 0 0

So I don't need to remount it as (right?):

# mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb push cacerts.bks /system/etc/security

But when I try the command under appears the error:
"failed to copy 'cacerts.bks' to '/system/etc/security/cacerts.bks': Permission d
enied"

Any ideas, please?

Cordially.

Hello,

I copied the file cacerts.bks using Windows Explorer to the sdcard.

Then using an app Terminal Emulator on the smartphone, I copied the file to /system/etc/security.

I can log on the Metaframe, but it shows another error now: "SSL/TLS error: The certificate validation failed."

So, I think it's time to a new thread.

Regards.

Hello,

After I did do this procedure, I'm having several issues with other apps such as Logmein Ignition, Amazon Kindle and Trillian. They are showing connection errors so they are not working.

Any ideas, please?

Nothing is perfect.

Hello,

I reverted to the original cacerts.bks to be able to run these apps.

Regards.

P.S.: the new cacerts worked, I was able to use Brazil's CA certs, but unfortunately I lost the old ones.

Help on getting Citrix Receiver certs fixed

Hello,

I have installed the Brazil's CA certs using "Certificate Manager" and "Certificate Installer" by Dolphin HD interface.

So I'm able to use Citrix Receiver with success.

I'm trying (and trying) to get Citrix Receiver going, and don't quite understand your post. I've loaded Dolphin, but am not clear what step 2 is.....

Would you mind explaining a bit more?

Hello,

Go to a web page with certificates that you want to import, then touch each certificate so the "Certificate Manager" and "Certificate Installer" will appears. The rest is intuitive.

Regards.
