Update firmware after root

Post by dparker86 » Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:22 pm

Is there a way to update firmware after root? Or a way to unroot then update firmware and root again?

I'd assume that it's corrupted if it failed. Grab a file manager, clear it out of cache, and try to download it again. If it still fails, try running the following code, which reverts back to allowing automatic updates. Or use your favorite file manager and change the file name back to otacerts.zip.

Code: Select all

su
mount -o,remount -rw /system
mv /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip.old /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip
mount -o,remount -ro /system

Can anybody elaborate on this? How does one apply the code? TIA

I'm having trouble with this as well. I seem to be rooted, but all terminal programs crash on open, and file managers (ES, Open, many others) never seem to get root privs despite properly triggering su. Hence, I'm unable to switch otacerts.zip.old to its previous state. Any ideas or methods on this?

gain access to your box thru ADB on a PC.

What firmware is this for 1.09 or the 1.13? If for 1.09 then you think this may work on 1.13?

Thanks,

I have successfully updated following the instructions provided but it breaks root. I am running build number V1.145 (Firmware version 3.2). I formatted an SD card and copied the 3 files extracted from PrimePwn.zip but it does not interrupt the boot like it has done previously. Has anyone had any luck rooting on this version? I have downloaded an OTA file from GTVHacker (48a52f02f44a.NeoTVPrime-ota.v1.0.9.zip) and have it copied to a USB Flash but not sure how to get it to work properly. Should I try to install this using remote adb? I have used ADB commands to send/receive and even flash files on a Nexus but it was connected directly to a PC. Does anyone know the precise command? Thanks for the support.
