You can run any command with sudo in order to give super user privileges to that command. So here you can write sudo ./android and then it asks your password.

Before that please check if your file (android) has executable permission or not. You can check that with ll android similar to the image below:

If there is not executable permission you can add x permission with this command: chmod +x android.

And you're done.

  • try with sudo chmod +x android – Mahdi Mar 29 '16 at 19:12
  • again permission denied? – Mahdi Mar 29 '16 at 19:16

From http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/adding-packages.html which I assume is the step you are on as you used cd tools

Mac/Linux: Open a terminal and navigate to the tools/ directory in the location where the Android SDK was installed, then execute android sdk

Try using android sdk instead of ./android

  • i write /tools android sdk but it shows permission denied – Zohaib Siddique Mar 29 '16 at 19:26

  • Try downloading the sdk onto your hard-drive instead of the mounted drive and trying from there. – user6031769 Mar 29 '16 at 20:02
  • I copied sdk to my Downloads location but again it says command not found @ user1326419 – Zohaib Siddique Mar 30 '16 at 6:31
