Installing su/Superuser.apk in ICS/Android 4.0 emulator

To avoid the Out of memory error when trying to copy the su-executable to /system/bin, you need to start the emulator manually with a large –partion-size argument:

$ emulator -avd MYNAME -partition-size 300

Then:

$ adb remount
$ adb push ~/Desktop/rootfiles/su /system/bin/su
$ adb shell chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
