I am imagining using this exploit to modify one of the default apps to include root delivery package could gives us the persistence we have been needing. I hope zenofex sees this.

I don't see how that will let you deliver root/su in anyway. That simply lets someone modify an APK without breaking their signature. In other word you download AngryBirds from some third part, it looks like angry birds, has Rovio's signature, BUT has added/modified code to grab your files and data or trash them. I don't believe this uncovers any root exploit that would give any app code the ability to remount or modify the system files.

Maybe I'm wrong(hope so), would love to have real root.

Our main problem at the moment is persistence across reboots. This exploit itself would not be a root. It would give us a way to store the current root exploit in place of one of the default system apps that come as part of the signed partition, that are "upgradeable", ie netflix, etc.

Looks like I was pretty close/on the same page at least, http://forum.gtvhacker.com/gtv-guides/topic1454.html was posted a few weeks after I posted that article on bluebox
http://gtvhacker.com/index.php/Exploiti ... g_for_Root
http://www.saurik.com/id/17 where explained how they leveraged the bluebox info , to create impactor root

http://forum.gtvhacker.com/nsz-gs7-stre ... c1455.html

So since the impactor is run from a PC via adb. Im wondering if its possible to set up a script on pc to at least get a form of semi persistence.What I mean is, triggering a remount of a cloned file system and such from a flash drive we could just leave plugged in, so we have read/write to that. Would really like to figure something out, my revue is essentially a paperweight right now even though it still works.

One can only hope. I am tired of waking up and wondering what the hell he tweeted that was awful this time and who it pissed off
