I'm trying to install apk when the device is booting. I wrote shell script to install apk:

pm install /data/local/tmp/MagiskManager-v7.1.1.apk

Unfortunately, when I enters the shell (using 'adb shell') and runs the script(using 'sh my_script.sh') I get error:

Exception occurred while executing:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Error: Can't open file: /data/local/tmp/MagiskManager-v7.1.1.apk

I already tried to put the apk in /data/local/tmp but it's not working. Also init.d app failed to run the script

  • But I want to do it every boot so I can't plug the device into pc every boot – Barel Elbaz Dec 30 '20 at 8:31

    Are you sure that at that time you execute the command the user data partition has already been mounted? – Robert Dec 30 '20 at 12:43

    Why would you want to install Magisk Manager at every boot? If you install it once, it's installed. – Rukbat Dec 30 '20 at 20:16
  • I customized settings system app and sigbed it with officail rom signature, the problem is that when I reboot my device the app turns into the older version and I should reinstall it every boot – Barel Elbaz Dec 31 '20 at 21:10
  • v7.1.1 is long outdated, please install v8.0.4 github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/blob/master/README.MD#downloads – alecxs Jan 2 at 9:07
