I renamed the original /system/bin/toolbox" to "toolbox_alt". I replaced the file /system/bin/toolbox with a file that was supposed to work, but doesn't work at all. My filemanagers and the most terminal comands have stopped working and I apparently lost root access. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (N9005) (International) running the newest Cyanogenmod nightly. Can anyone help me deleting the current toolbox and renaming the "toolbox_alt" back to "toolbox" ?

Thanks ahead


  • Have you tried re-rooting? You might be looking at a factory reset. – Matthew Read Feb 15 '15 at 4:24

I fixed it myself.

  1. I went to the recovery menu (CWM)
  2. Mounted /system
  3. Plugged it into my Laptop
  4. Opened ADB on my Laptop Comand: adb shell
  5. went to /system/bin and replaced the file

Hopefully this helps other who do the same mistake!
