I am just curious.
In /home/ftp/ lies as far as I can tell a file named "ftp".

/home/ftp>ls
ftp

This file cannot be opened:
/home/ftp>cat ftp
ERROR: File specified does not exist

and cannot be removed:
/home/ftp>rm ftp
File could not be found in: /home/ftp

Does it have ANY purpose? or is it a simulation of the file priviliges unter unix/linux?

Hi all, i cant seem to get anywhere with this one, when i attempt to' cd ..' nothing changes, i still end up in the /sbin directory even though i do not get a command error? Im a rooting newbie so chance is this is something very simple. But i just cant figure out how to get to the home directory....just seems strange that the cd .. command isnt doing anything at all. Any suggestions?

NVM managed to figure it out, it appears a bit temperamental on the commands so i had to come out of the challenge and go back into it a number of times.

This was pointless... everyone knows that these are simulated challenges. They can't account for normal terminal conventions... they just emulate the basic functionality of the commands. Keep that in mind when doing the rooting challenges.

Lock this shit. It's done.
