I'm using LG Optimus Black P970 with ICS 4.0.4. After rooting my phone, when I'm writing in the terminal the command busybox iplink show eth0, it shows iplink applet not found. What should I do? Also how do I find /data/misc/wifi?

It's "ip link show", not "iplink show". You're missing a space.

As for "how to find /data/misc/wifi", it's unclear what you mean by "find" it; that's the path that says where it is. In the root directory (/) there's a directory called data, and in that there's another directory called misc, and in that there's a directory called wifi.

It sounds like you're following a tutorial and typing commands without having any understanding of what they mean. It'd be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the basics of how a Linux system works before you go mucking about with root on your phone.

  • After typing in the terminal "busybox ip link show eth0", it is showing that "ip: can't find device etho". What to do next. It's true that I'm not a technical person, but I want to learn the rooting process.
