I'm using catlog to find error for an issue. Although that issue did not reappear , I see a constant Error
ADB_SERVICES ERROR: fd = 13, n = -1, errno = 5 (I/O error).
Sorry quite new to all this , not sure what should be done or Is it something I need to ignore?
few logs just before that error.
InputReader AP_PROF: AppLaunch_dispatchPtr : Down
AP_PROF unable to open /proc/mtrpof/ status entry


An I/O error may be indicative of filesystem corruption. If your device has a removable SD card, try removing it, putting it in a PC, and running a filesystem checker on it (such as fsck on Linux).

  • Thanks Dan : Is there any way I can run file system check on Android device itself? though enumlator or something? Oct 3 '13 at 8:54
  • I don't think so. To access the low level filesystem information, you need to be root, and the device needs to be unmounted. I suppose there might be a custom recovery that can do this, but I don't know of one.

  • My device is rooted and I can see an option Unmount SD card inside Settings->Storage . Oct 3 '13 at 9:03
  • If you're already rooted it might be worth looking for an app.

  • I was following the solution out here android.stackexchange.com/questions/38745/… , but I'm not able to run the fsck command. I get can;t read '/etc/fstab' " No such file or directory Oct 3 '13 at 9:38
