I am a newbie on this site and android development. I want to installa nd run openvpn to my emulator. I am using these 2 sites for reference :
chengdu110.wordpress com

I am facing couple of problems. From 1st site, I can't copy busybox to system/xbin folder. I get no access, permission failure, etc such messages. Am stuck at this point and thus can't proceed ahead. In Part 2 also need to access /system/lib/ where again problem comes.

In site 2, same cannot access /system/lib or /system/bin folder. Even I can't mount like this : ADB shell mount /system
Command mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system from site 1 was successful.

Even I face problems with cp cmd. Just cp doesn't work. I got to give "/system/lib/ cp" this format only it copies. Though in the above case "Permission denoed" occured for system/lib. But this foramt worked while copying busybox file.

Can anyone help me with the permission to system folders /xbin, /lib, /bin. Why is mounting required ? Why I am not able to mount directly as mount /system; I need to give full command mount -o rw, .... -t .... /system. I am not sure what all to give in the "..." place - had just copied it from site 1.

Any help, guidance is highly appreciated. I use Eclipse DDMS and Android emulator 2.3.3. Please try to help me.
