 Any idea why I get permission denied when I run su in adb shell? I've
seen multiple posts here claiming all you have to do is run su, but it
never works for me. Why?

 You can't get root on a regular G1.

1. installing complete system onto SD card

I am developing an android system for a development board and
was after information about installation of the complete system
onto SD card. The system in question is 2.3.2_r1.

At the moment we have have one partition with the entire system
on it, so /, /system, /data and /cache.

What partitions would people recommend making separate, and roughly
how big should each one be? We would like to keep as much as
possible RO, as it seems we've already had problems with power
interruptions corrupting the system.

Are there any other recommendations for running an Android system
completely SD based?

2. Need Information about System update in android


 In our project we need to provide firmware upgrade feature to the
product. We are using android 2.2 in our product. We are using NAND
flash to store linux and file system. Our requirement is download the from PC to SD card and put the SD card in to the product
and update the firmware from SD card to NAND.

 Can we use

 installPackage (Context context, File package File) API of recovery
system to update the software. Do we have to put in the
recovery partition of NAND?

Do we have to put recovery support in bootloader or is it a part of
android OS, because I can see the recovery directory under bootable/
recovery of android source.

Please provide us the more details about the recovery system.

Thanks and Regards
