I have the APK file for an application I want to install as a system application via SSH on rooted Android tablets. I'm able to install this application via ADB with a script but the installation fails when I do it through SSH. The SSH application installed is called QuickSSHd and I log in as root. With ADB I'm connected with the shell account that I raise as root with the
Here is the installation script:
if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then echo ">> This script must be run as root." exit 1 fi echo ">> Remounting /system in write mode..." mount -o rw,remount /system echo ">> Installing Manager..." wget -P /system/app http://update.esmart.net/apk/Manager.apk chmod 777 /system/app/Manager.apk chown system:system /system/app/Manager.apk echo ">> Removing smanager..." rm /system/app/smanager* echo ">> Remounting /system in read mode..." mount -o ro,remount /system echo ">> Starting Manager..." sleep 2 am start -W -n ch.esmart.managerapp/.MainActivity echo ">> Finished !"
The application icon is not displayed and
am command does not work.
After checking in logcat:
$ logcat | grep Manager W/zipro ( 3308): Unable to open zip '/system/app/Manager.apk': Permission denied D/asset ( 3308): failed to open Zip archive '/system/app/Manager.apk' W/PackageParser( 3308): Unable to read AndroidManifest.xml of /system/app/Manager.apk
I also tried the
su command in SSH but it changes nothing.
The permissions look good:
$ stat /system/app/Manager.apk File: "/system/app/Manager.apk" Size: 370990 Blocks: 728 IO Block: 4096 regular file Device: 13h/19d Inode: 1448 Links: 1 Access: (0777/-rwxrwxrwx) Uid: ( 1000/ system) Gid: ( 1000/ system) Access: 2014-10-24 12:10:05.000000000 Modify: 2014-10-24 12:10:05.000000000 Change: 2014-10-24 12:10:05.000000000
What does this error mean? Thanks a lot!
