I have a One V, and I want to backup atleast 30 wifi passwords I have stored on my device, but all the apps on play store require root.I can't do that as unlocking the bootloader will remove my phone data, so I'm asking :
If I unlock the bootloader and then restore data still with the stock ROM on, will it restore the wifi data automatically, and then hopefully I can back it up with a wifi backup app (cause there is no way to root device without unlocking the bootloader atm)?Here's what dashboard is showing as backed up:
since I own a Neo V which is locked, and the service menu in the phone says that the Bootloader cannot be unlocked. if I unlock my SIM lock(probably with TurboSIM, since thats the cheapest solution), would that enable me to unlock my bootloader, and start the real modifying of my phone?
i want to know if it's possible to root an Android without unlocking the bootloader. My problem is I don't want anything wiped off the phone. I'm trying to get past the lock screen, because I found this phone in the street, so I want to get the numbers in it to try and return it. I've heard you can bypass the lockscreen if it's rooted. It's a Samsung Galaxy S Mesmerize, (or Fascinate).
I successfully unlocked the bootloader on my xperia x8 via flashtool put on custom kernel nAa 14 and miniCM7 Yay.Everything is fine apart that I want to change network because they have much better deals etc.I went to the 3 network shop and tried to put in the Sim, it took it in loaded but wouldnt register with the network , in fact I tried last week when I was on stock kernel and gingerxperia and it asked for ''unlock code'', today it didn't ask for unlock code took it in but wont register.I guess there must be some sim lock or something.
Maybe it is unlocked but something to do with Radio pehaps nonetheless my current Network works fine.here's my S1 LOG if any good. after unlocking BL of course

I have a problem with my LG optimus 4XHD. I didn't like the 4.1.2 lg skinned android so i wanted to install a custom rom. I started by rooting my phone that worked but then i flashed clockworkmod recovery without unlocking the bootloader. Now i can't enter my recovery anymore but i can still boot into android. Now my question is: Can i still unlock the bootloader now without bricking my phone?
[How-To] ROOT Your Nexus One without Unlocking the Bootloader. ALL ROM'S! - Google Nexus One Owners | Google Groups. Ok, I posted this on my Google Groups page where I was able to Tidy it up and update it easier. Sources credited and applied. I did this on 2 N1's. No wiping, no data loss, both T-Mobile with FRF91. No data loss, no wipes, no nothing. The only reason you will have to wipe or anything is if you want to put a custom recovery on it and a custom ROM.
i recently broke my last phone, so i had it replaced and this one is running 2.3.6, i tried using that black white screen (cmd?) with the options ex:
1. unlock root etc.
2. CWM install/root etc etc. x. debugging etc
but no luck. When i reach the rsd lite portion of the first section, my phone just boots up into the os and rsd lite gets cancelled. ( i chose 2.3.4)when i first got it, i could do everything fine, but i couldn't boot after installing 3 different roms. but when i install clean software it works just as it should
Now that the mempodroid hack based on the memory leak discovered by Aedla has been blocked (since about kernel 2.6.42, and android 4.0.3), are there any remaining ways of getting root access without re-flashing the bootloader? Alternatively, any pointers to how I would find (or build) a bootloader for a tablet based on rockchip RK29 board (for which I'm unlikely to be able to get detailed documentation)? Or is there any way to downgrade the kernel without root access?
how to unlock boot loader, root and s-off my HTC one mini. I bought the phone in november so im assuming that i updated to 4.3 or it was already installed (relevant later). I htcdev unlocked my boot loader, installed twrp and made a backup, installed superuser and rooted my phone. Then I installed titanium backup pro, made a backup and uninstalled all the system apps/bloatware I didn't need. All was peachy but the apps kept reappearing which I found was down to s-on (despite what I read about htcdev unlock boot loader method making my phone s-off) . So I tried the revone method and got error 1 which apparently is down to having android 4.3 so I looked for an earlier ROM and flashed Magio r1 which worked fine but couldn't find the data/local/temp folder to install revone into. Probably could of put it somewhere else but I wasn't that confident with the s-off process. So I finally found Jmz m4 stock ROM so there was light at end of tunnel. So I read up on twrp factory reset/format data functions and saw people were using both methods. I went with the full format and factory reset afterwards. Looking back now that was pretty stupid as I have no ROM and no backups to restore to. I did manage to chmod 777 the permissions on my twrp backups and copy the to dropbox (after endless scouring of forums). I also know how to flash boot images and use the adb side load functions. I can't adb push the file as it returns with error closed, I've tried the following commands:
adb device - my device is attached and side loading. adb usb - returns error closed
adb kill-server adb start server - server starts successfully then returns error closed.
And just to be sure I tried with /data/media/, same error..I've fastboot flashed the jmzM4 ROM image and kernel but no joy as I'm guessing the boot image isn't enough and you need the zip. Currently I can load into boot loader and recovery no problem, just freezes on HTC load screen in normal boot up.
I was able to root the device by downgrading it but when i upgrade manually thru flashtool to ics 431,root and superuser app is gone.i also tried Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v16 but it does not show any restore backup option and nothing happens.. I read each and every related forum searched web but no luck .
Huawei ascend p1 B226 I was follow the steps to root my phone so that i can install CWM on the phone. But i cannot open fastboot/bootloader mode, i tried to use the command "adb reboot bootloader" to log into the bootloader mode but my phone was stuck at the logo. the device manager also show me an unknown driver "Blaze". i tried to install the driver "Blaze" into "adb bootloader interface" but when i check on"fastboot devices" i only get "? fastboot"
My phone wont boot into android because of a bad setting I made in pimp my rom, it only boots into recovery now. So what I need to do is sort files modified by a certain date and time (last night) and restore them with originals hoepfully to get my phone to boot back up.
So how do I navigate and search my root directory through 4ext recovery or bootloader, because those are my only options?
Is there a way to mount these directories and browse them through windows as if it were an actual folder so I can use windows 7's build in search features as well? I have android commander installed and can use that if need be.
how to exactly approach this without installing my rom back over again.
I wana buy 1 of these apps . I wana know which 1 is better . I have titanium backup free version and when I uninstall sony ericssons apps they are still at setting>applications>manage applications and they are still there but doesnt open so it is uninstalled but not from manage apllication. How do u guys uninstall x10 apps? Let us know .
I recently tried to unlock the bootloader for my XPERIA ION and I think I managed to do it. It rebooted in a "new" state so everything I had was gone. Not sure if that's what's supposed to happen?
Well, then I tried to root with the "bin4ryv18" runme.bat. It goes fine until it keeps on running ,so something went wrong... Also when using another program, it says it "failed on data/local/tmp permission denied". I don't know how I should continue from here? I'm quite a noob when it comes to this. Do I flash something first ?
I unlocked my bootloader a month before and I didn't know how to relock it back so I searched and found this website >>androidgadgematic I followed everything it mentioned and after finished installation, I hold on the boot button, the green light indicator blinked once and vibrated once but after that gave no respond. I didn't unroot my phone before doing the relock procedure. Now, I really don't know what to do because I searched google but none. I indeed need a step by step procedure to save my phone. How to boot my phone now, or else it is dead. I don't have if any method to reinstall ALL system files, no matter kernel, firmwares via my pc as long as it can helo my phone to boot up.
