I used Simply Honey before and everything was okay. However, when I flash to a Stock 2.2 ROM, I cannot access the /data directory from adb. I am sure the phone is totally rooted because I have the Superuser icon in my apps menu and I can open the /data directory in Root Explorer. Why can't I access /data from adb as well?

    What's the error? Are you escalating the adb shell to root? – Matthew Read Jul 30 '11 at 4:10
  • no, just when use adb shell to go into data directory, it says "don`t have the permission" – ufo22940268 Jul 30 '11 at 9:58

You need to escalate the shell, since /data requires root permissions to access. After running adb shell, run su before running cd /data. The prompt should change from $ to # if it works.
