    Hi guys,

    I would like to move a file from SDcard to system memory. This is what I enter at the command line using SManager's console:

    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
    chmod 755 /system
    mv /mnt/sdcard/clockworkmod /system

    The output is "Failure at /mnt/sdcard/clockworkmod - Cross-device link."

    I have also tried rebooting after entering the remount command, still same message.

    Any help here please? I am still learning the basics, so any help is appreciated

    I would like to move my Clockworkmod folder with Nandroid backup to internal memory, format my SDcard, and then move the CWM folder back to SDcard. In other words, my SDcard has become a clutter of junk folders, and I want to clean it. And the only thing I really want to keep atm is my Nandroid backup.

    Try:

    su
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system
    cat /sdcard/(File) > (where you want it)


    You can also you something like Root Explorer, Root Browser, and ES File manager with root permission.

    cat /sdcard/(File) > (where you want it)
    When I type this in, I get "sh: /system is a directory"

    I also tried to pipe a cat to an arbitrary name, ie cat /mnt/sdcard/(file) > /system/nandroid

    then it returns "mount: no such file or directory"

    Well, if you uninstall crap, you can push the nandroid to /data if it's less than 170MB's.

    Yeah I do know. The size of the file is 80MB.

    Yeah I can move it to a PC, I was just hoping someone could help me figure this out. Otherwise, Ill just transfer it to my desktop.

    Obviously. Wanted to learn it from the command line. Sigh, oh well.

    Try this:
    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /system /system
    mkdir -p /system/clockworkmod
    mv /sdcard/clockworkmod/* /system/clockworkmod/

    This sounds like it'd be a million times easier to do with your desktop. In fact, I recently did the same thing for the same reason. It was fast and easy, and I sent up link2sd on an ext2 partition while I was at it.

    ... ok I tried mv /mnt/sdcard/clockworkmod/* instead of just /sdcard/clockworkmod/*

    Still fails at [dir] - Cross-link device

    Oh well. Thanks guys, you tried and I don't want to pester you anymore. I'll eventually learn it (I hope), I just assumed that moving a file from external to internal memory would be more simple. Oh well, thank you all for trying ...
