Rooting Android on Beagleboard XM

Hi Gang,

OK, I’ve successfully rebuilt the 4.1.2 branch for the Beagleboard-xM. I’d like to run a VNC server on the board. However, inspite of the availability of root access on the serial connection, the app still believes that the device isn’t rooted. So, the question is, how do you root the Beagleboard xM or the Beaglebone Android file systems?
