Help Please - ADB Copy Fails!
I am trying to get Chrome to come up in desktop mode permanently on my non-rooted Xperia Tablet Z. Multiple sources tell me that on an un-rooted device I need to use ADB to copy a file containing the line:
chrome --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1207.1 Safari/537.1"
to the /data/local directory.
So I dropped that line into a file (called chrome-command-line) on the root of my c: drive and run ADB like so:
c:\Android-SDK\sdk\platform-tools>adb push /chrome-command-line /data/local/chrome-command-line
It immediately fails with the following message:
failed to copy '/chrome-command-line' to '/data/local/chrome-command-line': Permission denied
Any idea how I can perform this ADB copy operation without rooting?

@wizzrah: Yes USB debugging is on. ADB sees the device fine.
1) That is what I figured but I don't understand why multiple forums/web sites recommend this as the "solution"
2) Incorrect. It only sets desktop mode for that session. You think I would be going through all this if a simple setting in the browser worked? ;-)
