Superuser.apk for X86 GoogleTV

Post by zenofex » Wed Mar 07, 2012 4:47 am

Hey everyone, a user came on IRC last night and offered a cash bounty to compile Superuser.apk for the google TV. So with that in mind (and the fact that I'm broke and jobless), I spent the better part of the evening compiling the binary from source. So without further ado:

Steps to install the x86 Superuser.apk and su binary on the unsigned Sony kernel!

does this work; can anyone confirm?

is the first string pointing from the computer location or is that the second string?

adb push system/app/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk

adb push system/app/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
The syntax is as follows:

adb push localfile remotefile

Yeah, until we release our next version of the current unsigned kernel which would have it pre-installed.

Heh, I always prefer Bitcoin but making a bitcoin deposit is a bit tedious. If you are interested in it regardless the steps are:

1.)Sign up for an account on mtgox.com (a bitcoin exchange market).
2.)Make a cash deposit at particular local bank branches (listed on their deposits page and submitting them a email with a picture of the receipt.
3.)Use the newly deposit money into the exchange to purchase bitcoins (time from email -> deposit is generally about 15-30 minutes).
4.)Withdraw bitcoins to my bitcoin address.

Buying Bitcoins with paypal (although it can be found, is rare) and is never a good mix as bitcoin is a currency that doesn't account for chargebacks and paypal is notorious for siding with the "buyer". I however wont let my disliking for paypal interfere, if you would prefer to deal not with any of the Bitcoin nonsense.

so would this read the following if i had the apk on the root of my C

adb push C:\system/app/Superuser.apk?

my guess is that would be incorrect do to the forward and back slashes; any help?

No, no, no... The first parameter is the location of the .apk on your PC. The second paramter is where you want (need) to put it on your device. So, in your case:

adb push C:\Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk

And if you had the su binary in the same dir (you need both the Superuser.apk AND the su binary):

adb push C:\su /system/bin/su

And then change the permissions on the su binary with:

adb shell chmod 6755 /system/bin/su

Then reboot the tablet with the command:

adb shell reboot
