I just rooted my SG S4 Android 5.0.1 with auto root and (a friend's) Windows Odin. Everything worked fine (root complete and SU installed) till I think I gave a bad mount command in the root directory on the phone in terminal (i guess here it went wrong, not sure. Or perhaps during installation of bash or nano) when I was installing bash and nano. Since it rebooted, I lost the wifi and cannot adb shell into my phone anymore from mac.
However, everything except the wifi is still working. Adb and usb functions are still working. I can push and pull, however I just can't enter root directories through terminal anymore. I get the following error: - exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: Permission denied (13) -
I think my phone is still recoverable, however I don't know what to do and don't want to risk making things worse. Which andoird wizard can help this poor wifiless guy?
Below here were my bash nano install commands:
./adb shell su mount -o remount,rw /system cp -r /storage/extSdCard/bashnano/terminfo /system/etc cp /storage/extSdCard/bashnano/profile /etc cp /storage/extSdCard/bashnano/bash /data cp /storage/extSdCard/bashnano/nano /data chmod 755 /data/bash chmod 755 /data/nano cd /system/bin/ mv sh sh.old ln -s /data/bash sh ln -s /data/bash bash ln -s /data/nano nano export TERMINFO=/etc/terminfo export TERM=linux mount -o remount,ro /system
P.S. So I also performed a regular mount in root, which i think is what made things bad!
