root #2

Post by havikx » Sat Aug 04, 2012 3:26 am

OK so the gtvhacker guys released the root exploit for revue. They feel its out of most peoples league to do so they opted not to make a user friendly release with some form of instructions. So can some elaborate on how to go about it? Build the root binary and.... run thru adb?

Its been too long.

Just note:

If you are technically savy and are willing to risk damaging your box, gambling on how skilled you are, then feel free to give it a shot. We will note that you are likely to brick your device much like we have bricked ours (but we have fancy-pants hardware recovery mechanisms).

ha..... actually i never set git or xtools up since updating my mac. lol. i was retard for a second. thought i wasnt spelling anything right. i'm currently trying to redownload xcode but taking forever....

so... lemme ask...
1.clone from git
2. compile
3. connect over adb and push
4. run script
5. profit?!

did i miss anything in there?

also note: not scared to brick this thing. worst case is it becomes a hardware donation. i'm sure i can find another, hardware root it this time, and start trying again. plus costar soon so... whatever. also, i think i've rooted enough phones and built enough desktops to be considered "tech savvy" thank you. dont let my short list of devices fool you.

Watch the video. It's fairly straight forward.

I just did it. It's a cake walk if you follow the video. It took me nearly 5 minutes tops, which is because I watched the video, then followed it as it played again. Now if only we can figure out how to get su to stay and have a permanent root.

What I want to know is, can we un-neuter the recovery, at least leaving us an open upgrade path if we do anything to stop it.

that is actually more of what i was thinking. I am on 3.2 with nuetered recovery, would we be able to apply http://forum.gtvhacker.com/revue/topic254.html to get unneutered once temporary root is in place?

Looking at it, I'm not sure as far as the file goes and being signed, but I think we could do it, if it's not for the signature. Push the file, run the root, then flash the file. Let's see if Zenofex can comment on this though, so we don't brick them though.

Well, you should be able to. Issue is, the box will randomly update the recovery version (look at the init scripts) - and push it's recovery.img from /system/boot/. This may work as a temporary fix, but it will just be overwritten whenever the box decides.
