    AndroidChroot article still bugging my OCD

    There is a technique known as chroot (change root) that enables you to run a second system within another by creating a subsystem in which the secondary system appears to have root.
    Like NIN said, this combined with the rest of that paragraph makes it sounds like chroot has to do with the root account, which isn't right. chroot changes the apparent root directory to accommodate operation of the secondary OS within the first, which is still located in the original root filesystem.

    Perhaps the problem here is over use of the term, "Root"! ;-)

    There is the Root user (administrator) account.

    "In Unix-like computer operating systems, root is the conventional name of the user who has all rights or permissions (to all files and programs) in all modes (single- or multi-user)."

    Then there is the Root directory.

    "In a computer file systems, the root directory is the first or top-most directory in a hierarchy. It can be likened to the trunk of a tree, as the starting point where all branches originate."

    And then, /root.

    "On many Unixes, there is also a directory which is named /root. Confusingly, it is not a root directory in the sense of this article, but rather the home directory of the superuser (conventionally known as "root"). It is sometimes referred to as "slash root"."

    Perhaps it was a mistake to include the concept of the root user and 'rooting' a device which I understand to be accessing the device at the priviledge level of root user and therefore being able to modify the system itself to the extent (in this case) of creating a second root directory from which a second system can be run (Chroot).

    Does Dev mode access the administrator account? Is the term, "rooting" a misnomer? Is it merely elevated priviledges?

    Are you saying the article is factually incorrect or merely confusing because I started from the idea of access rather than the creation of a secondary base directory?

    Is this better?
    Root is the master or administrator account on a Linux system. webOS is at base, a Linux system. It is well known that it is easy for you as a webOS user to access the root account of your device. This account allows access to the root directory, all branches of the file system and therefore the whole system. Android is also a Linux based system that runs from a root directory. There is a technique known as chroot (change root) that enables you to run a second system within another by creating a subsystem in which the secondary system appears to have the root directory.
    Or should I just eliminate the whole concept of the root user and rooting to avoid confusion?

    I guess it seems factually misleading. The article starts out emphasizing the root user admin. But that's to lead into chroot in the last sentence which is about the root / directory. So to anyone who isn't familiar it's confusing (to the familiar) and misleading (to the noob) at the same time?

    In that sense the update you posted is better. But I almost wouldn't mention root user except to mention this isn't so much about root privileges, which many are familiar with. (It is confusing root refers to a few things.)

    Not sure if this is the right place to put it, but...

    I saw the tweet the other day, and I'm interested in getting involved. Where can I find out more?
