I'm trying to Enable more stats on Gsam but in ADB it won't let me use the command I used a week ago

Here's what I get.

NOTE: 'pm list' commands have moved! Run 'adb shell cmd package' to display the new commands.
pm path: print the path to the .apk of the given PACKAGE.
pm dump: print system state associated with the given PACKAGE.
pm install: install a single legacy package pm install-create: create an install session -l: forward lock application -r: replace existing application -t: allow test packages -i: specify the installer package name -s: install application on sdcard -f: install application on internal flash -d: allow version code downgrade (debuggable packages only) -p: partial application install -g: grant all runtime permissions -S: size in bytes of entire session
pm install-write: write a package into existing session; path may be '-' to read from stdin -S: size in bytes of package, required for stdin
pm install-commit: perform install of fully staged session pm install-abandon: abandon session
pm set-installer: set installer package name
pm uninstall: removes a package from the system. Options: -k: keep the data and cache directories around after package removal.
pm clear: deletes all data associated with a package.
pm enable, disable, disable-user, disable-until-used, default-state: these commands change the enabled state of a given package or component (written as "package/class").
pm grant, revoke: these commands either grant or revoke permissions to apps. The permissions must be declared as used in the app's manifest, be runtime permissions (protection level dangerous), and the app targeting SDK greater than Lollipop MR1.
pm reset-permissions: revert all runtime permissions to their default state.
pm get-install-location: returns the current install location. 0 [auto]: Let system decide the best location 1 [internal]: Install on internal device storage 2 [external]: Install on external media
pm set-install-location: changes the default install location. NOTE: this is only intended for debugging; using this can cause applications to break and other undersireable behavior. 0 [auto]: Let system decide the best location 1 [internal]: Install on internal device storage 2 [external]: Install on external media
pm trim-caches: trim cache files to reach the given free space.
pm create-user: create a new user with the given USER_NAME, printing the new user identifier of the user.

Before I could just type this: adb shell pm grant com.gsamlabs.bbm android.permission.BATTERY_STATS
and it would work, so what would I type now? I downloaded Accubattery until I can figure out the new command.

Have you made sure that the device is set to file transfers? If that is set, when you plug int the device type adb devices. You should see your phone.

Yes, and I do see it. But ADB changed the pm grant command and I'm trying to find the right command.

You're missing one part of the command. They don't tell you on the app

adb -d shell pm grant com.gsamlabs.bbm android.permission.BATTERY_STATS
