    For anyone who is getting the "can't find 'data/app' to install", try this

    go the the scripts directory and edit the pushtodata.sh file

    change the line that starts with sudo ./adb to this:

    sudo ./adb install 2-Place-App-Here/$apptopush

    Save the file and rerun the menu.sh command. It should work.

    Great program. I wonder how many AT&T users just installed this today due to AngryBirds being released today?

    I will get all the way to the window shown in the screen shot and the only options that work are "99" which checks for updates (there arent any) and 0 which logs you out. Am I supposed to do something else after this?

    I saw quite a few "Permission Denied" errors for some Captivate users, here's the solution I came up with that fixes those errors.
    1. Make sure your phone is rooted (you need the su binary) Rooting Tutorial
    2. Enable USB Debugging (and stay awake)
    3. Get the latest version of the Android SDK


    Now for the commands:
    1. adb devices
    2. adb usb (if you've got your Cappy plugged in via USB)
    3. adb shell id (you should be running as shell)
    4. adb shell ls -l / (should list out the root contents)
    5. adb shell ls -l /data (should give a permission error message, from what I remember)
    6. adb shell su -c ls /data (now this should work, be prepared to allow the root command via the phone UI)
    7. adb shell su -c "chmod 777 /data"
    8. adb shell su -c "chmod 777 /data/app" (change permissions so shell can push to that directory)
    9. adb push <app.apk> /data/app
    10. adb shell su -c "chmod 755 /data"
    11. adb shell su -c "chmod 755 /data/app" (change permissions back)


    You can also do the same thing with /system/app

    [Edit] done on OS X - Snow Leopard

    I'm a noob with Mac and Captivate. But this Sideload Wonder Machine would be way easier if it were packaged like the Windows version.

    Just sayin'.

    This is a wonderful tool that work like a charm in windows with the application doing everything. Why I need to start my old PC to do this? I am not good at programing and whatever I do, I cannot make the mac instructions to work, could someone be able to actually port the whole windows app for mac? Thank you in advance

    I downloaded the script, tried to open it up, and all I get is a wall of text.

    I'm so confused...I need step-by-step instructions for these types of things. All I wanna do is download Swype for my Sanmsung Captivate.

    I had a problem similar to yours with my Captivate. There is no easy fix. I found the scripts fairly useless because I had to approve root access for every single command. It was a pain and didn't work with the adb command push. The problem has to do with ownership and permissions. Using adb you connect to the phone as 'shell'. The files and directories are owned by root or system. Furthermore, read and write permissions are highly restricted. The combination of root access problems, ownership and permissions makes the scripts very difficult to use. However, there is a manual way of pushing the files:

    adb shell su -->this puts you in a shell with root privileges
    chmod 777 data --> opens up data for writing to the world
    chmod 777 data/app --> opens up data/app for writing to the world

    You should now be able to push your apk.

    adb push <apk file> /data/app

    Make sure you lock down the directory permissions after you are done

    adb shell su -->this puts you in a shell with root privileges
    chmod 755 data --> close data for writing
    chmod 755 data/app --> close data/app for writing

    One last thing I discovered is that the apk file is copied to the /data/app with ownership by the 'shell' account. I don't know how significant that is. I changed ownership with the chown command within a terminal emulator on my Captivate.

    BTW - xxsk8rdude06xx is correct, SWYPE is on your phone already.

    Hi leopoldbloom,

    I'm new to android (but not to linux/mac os x, so not terminal shy). Do your instructions require your phone to be rooted?

    When I run ./adb shell su, I get
    error: device not found

    When I run ./adb devices, I get
    List of devices attached

    but nothing is listed.

    Sorry I haven't replied sooner. Yes. To execute my instructions the phone has to be rooted.

    Here is how I managed to install applications on my AT&T Captivate through a Linux machine without the Wonder Machine.

    On the phone:
    Applications -> Settings -> Development: Turn on USB debuging, Stay awake and Allow mock locations.

    - Download and install the latest version of Android SDK on your PC: Android SDK | Android Developers

    - Connect your phone via usb
    - Open a console and navigate to where you installed the Android SDK (we are looking for adb which usually is in the platform-tools directory).

    - run: ./adb usb

    - run: ./adb devices

    at this point you should see your device listed.

    - run: ./adb install your-custom-app.apk

    well ... that is about it ... it should say Success when it finishes installing.

    Same with me...downloaded the swm-install.sh file, tried to open it in Terminal but it doesn't recognize the file or take any action when I double-click it.

    Anybody have more detailed instructions for Mac users?

    I could use more detailed instructions as well. I have spent the past 2 hours trying to get this to work. I can't even get an executable file to download. I tried using the Android Side Loading Wonder Machine running paralells with Widows XP as well and that was a flop. I Can't get the drivers to link the android phone to Windows.

    I need a ROOT for MAC.
