I'm porting a script that runs well on android 4.0.4 to android 4.4.2
Simplified it does this:
ls *.a | ./busybox xargs ./busybox rm -f
I'm using a busybox binary in mi app's folder.
The error I'm getting is:
xargs: ./busybox: Permission denied
However, if I run
./busybox rm -f x.a it works.
I'm rooted and can execute simple commands as root, the problem is when a comand has a nested command inside.
same thing happens with rsync -e.
I've tested this on Samsung galaxy note 10.1 android 4.0.4 where it works fine, and Samsung galaxy note 10.1 2014 edittion android 4.4.2 where it fails.
I'm sensing this has something to do with the problem: Terminal emulator article about su and ping but it doesn't help on a solution.
