Android Permission Denied Error while rooting Device


Sometime while root any device using Android Debug Bridge (adb) it shows following errors

Error 1:

/data/local/GingerBreak: permission denied

Error 2:

Cannot copy boomsh.: Permission denied

Solution (Error 1)

After going to ADB shell of the device when you execute “/data/local/GingerBreak” shows following error:

E:\ADB\adb.exe shell
$ /data/local/GingerBreak
/data/local/GingerBreak: permission denied


To fix this problem you need to give 755 permission to GingerBreak file. So, execute following command

$ chmod 755 /data/local/GingerBreak


This will assign proper permissions to the file.


Solution (Error 2)

After you fixing Error 1 while running GingerBreak you might face following error:

E:\ADB\adb.exe shell
$ /data/local/GingerBreak

To fix this issue you have to delete two files i.e. /data/local/tmp/boomsh and /data/local/tmp/sh. Following are the commands to remove the files

E:\ADB\adb.exe shell
$ rm /data/local/tmp/boomsh
$ rm /data/local/tmp/sh
