I fired up SSHDroid using Android 10 for the first time, and quickly noticed a warning that the app was not made for Android 10, and might not work correctly. I was happy to see that it did work as the daemon fired right up and I ssh'ed in without issue. I tried getting to my pictures area on my phone so I could back up some of the original raw files. I was greeted with an "Access Denied" to /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera area. Unfortunately SSHDroid is not allowed access to the /storage area anymore in Android 10. Now to find a way to get to my raw picture files.
It seems that SimpleSSHD is not being updated any time soon, and for that matter does not even show up in the Google Play store anymore, I wanted to see if any other sshd programs for Android allowed access to the photos area of the phone. The one that seems to allow this that I found is SimpleSSHD. Upon first startup it asks for access to media which includes photos and videos. I proceed to start up the sshd server and ssh in. I was able to access the /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/ area with my photos. SimpleSSHD works great. I don't see any way to give the dev some money by buying the app, or in app purchases, so I guess I'll just say thanks for making a great sshd app that works on Android 10.
Last night the Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 update was pushed out to Motorola Atrix 4g phones in the US. I'm happy to say I'm the owner of one of these phones. Before the update I had rooted my phone so I could run things like full phone backups (Titantium Backup) and do side loading (which is now an enabled feature in Atrix 2.3.4 version). I'm happy to say the update went smoothly.
Here's the issue after doing an OS update. If you had rooted your phone you will loose root. This will happen every time you do an update. The update overwrites the hacked su program which allows programs to su to root. This meant I had to find a new way to root the phone again. My first stop for this is always the the XDA Developers forum. They are the cutting edge of phone hacking.
Searching the XDA Fourm I came up with this link to a site which provides an older method to root the phone. This method might be older but it was working for people on the forum. I happy to report that after following the steps on this site my phone is rooted again. Hooray! Thanks Brief Mobile!
The bootloader was cracked on the Atrix a few weeks ago.I have not decided to do this yet as I'm satisfied with Gingerbread for now. But if anyone wants to read more about this check out this Brief Mobile posting about the 2.3.4 update and about the bootloader.
