Ever wanted to have to have unrestricted file access to the /system partition of your Android device through the comfort of your desktop PC? How about wireless mounting to be able to copy files to and from your SD card via WiFi? If even that doesn’t tickle your fancy, what about shell access to your device via the same WiFi network?
Here are some of the benefeits of using this technique:
- Dual mount ( you can copy to and from the phone while using the sdcard)
- wireless mount (copy to your sdcard without cable)
- wireless root shell (root terminal access)
- Grabing APK From Phone
- modifying data partition
- unlimited access to all data
- full, unrestricted access on your /system partition
How-To: [Root access Needed]
1. mount system rw
a. mount system RW with market app sgs tools
b. mount system RW with market app “mount system r/w”
2. enable a SSH/SFTP server
a. enable sshd server with market app “QuickSSHd” -paid $1, and very much worth it.
b. enable sshd server with market app “SSHDroid” – free, limited features
Make sure you select a SECURE password so that it cannot be brute force hacked over the cell network.
3. Make a shortcut on your desktop to your phone’s ssh and sftp addresses
a. under linux:
gnome-terminal -x ssh -X email@example.com
b. under Mac:
terminal -x ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
c. under Windows:
or putty (thanks boardsportsrule)
Shortcuts make things easier to access. Creating shortcuts will allow you one-click wireless dual mount, or one-click root shell. This basically makes your phone like a USB drive attached to your computer at all times.
NOTE: Any SFTP Client can be used like “root explorer”, the paid market app
a. use a filemanager like Astro to network sftp into loopback address (sftp://127.0.0.1) and copy the file
b. use your computer to SFTP into your phone and copy the file
5. reboot the phone after applying battery mods or new system apks.
This should get you going in the direction you want.
By using the techniques available in this thread, you will have unlimited access to your phone. This will give you the ability to destroy your phone. Realize that you must be careful of performing any modification as there are thousands of files on your phone and trying to find the problem can be a nightmare. It’s a good idea to keep a written log and a backup of any files you modify so that you can go back and restore them.
