I soft bricked my colorfly g808 by following this guide (Japanese)
I didnt do it using adb shell but using a terminal emulator in the phone itself, so I don't have ADB debug mode enabled.
the file in question is
I need to set its permissions to "644"
I have access to adb sideload by pressing the volume key while booting while connected by USB.
I tried several tutorials for making a custom updater-script but I always get the message "Installation aborted." when I try to install it. I tried signed and unsigned, by the way.
Is it possible at all to create an update.zip for just setting a permission on a file? do I need an "update-binary" also present? (I tried including one from here http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=92493&uk=252038779 which I thought was targeted for my device)
My android version is 4.2.2... I think..
What I see in the computer:
$ adb sideload update-signed.zip loading: 'update-signed.zip' sending: 'update-signed.zip' 100%
What I see in the device:
Now send the package you want to apply to the device with "adb sideload <filename>"... Installation aborted.
The "Installation aborted" appears right after I send the file. It looks like it doesn't even try to analyze it. I tried simplifying the script using just
ui_print("Next time don't forget to enable debug mode before playing with fire!"); sleep(5);
(I'm taking care of leaving an empty line at the end also...)
