    Default Permission denied

    I'm been searching everywhere, and I can't find a fix for this. My phone is rooted, so I'm not sure why I wouldn't have access to do anything. At the moment, I'm messing around with trying to install Linux on my S5. I'm getting numerous Permission denied errors. It seems to happen when I use busy box's "mount" command. For instance, in Linux on Android, I get permission denied at "busybox mount -t ext2 /dev/block/loop255 /data/local/mnt". I'm assuming this is some kind of security feature that's preventing me from doing this. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Kinda works. I'm able to run each command manually, but SH files still give permission errors.
