How can I root the APQ8096 board?
I can get su with adb shell but I want to give root access to apps.
How can I do that?
Is there any code that I need to change?
Any binaries that I need to install?
Anything that I need to do?
We do not recommend giving full root access to your applications. If you want to give access to a particular application, please follow the following steps:
If you want to give full root access to all your applications, you will need to change your Android framework.
Thank you for the quick reply.
I am trying to use general Su managing apps like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.supersu&hl=en
Those apps are not able to find it.
I tried root checking with this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joeykrim.rootcheck&hl=en and it is saying that the device is not rooted.
Am I need to place this su somewhere?
Can you please provide any reference so that I can start doing something that I need.
I tried to root the device with kingoroot but it is failing every time.
Are there any other apps that I can use to root the device?
My need was to run bash shell scripts on the board. To run the bash scripts I need bash shell. To get the bash shell I need to root the device.
We don't recommend using an external application to grant root access to the board. You can root your device the following way via ADB:
Run command 'adb root'
You should see '#' in front of your device name in your adb shell. This indicates that your device has been successfully rooted.
What should we change the permission of /system/xbin/su to?I tried
adb shell suchmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
but using a tool like Terminal Emulator for Android I still cannot execute /system/xbin/su or ls -l /system/xbin/su without a "permission denied" error.
ls -l /system/xbin/su
