HTC Desire :: Orange Branded Desire - Rooting - Unlocking And Froyo

Jul 23, 2010

I am toying with the idea of putting a Froyo Rom on my desire, but have several questions that aren't answered in other posts.

1. Will I need to unlock my phone before, during or after changing the Rom? I am not overly bothered by the orange stuff on my phone, but am worried about losing my WiFi connections!

2. Do I need a goldcard? Some instructions say yes, other no. None mention orange handsets specifically.

3. Which is the easiest & safest method to root my phone, if I want to put the Froyo Rom on it?

4. What if I want to change Roms - do I need to do the whole process again? I've seen something about a Rom manager, but where do you get it and how does it work?

5. Which Rom do I use? I've looked at some I'd the modacco forum ROMs, but most don't actually say what you do or don't get with them.

6. What's that difference between a2sd and a2sd+? Does it come as part of the ROM or so I news to get it separately?

HTC Desire :: Installing Froyo And Looking For Easiest Way To Root / ROM Manager

Jul 23, 2010

Just plucked up the courage to root my Desire. And now want to have a go at installing Froyo and looking for the easiest way. I've looked at ROM Manager and was wondering if its worth getting the paid version as it says you can get all the popular ROMs downloaded to your phone. Was wondering how good this app is and if anyone has had problems with getting the ROMs.

HTC Desire :: Rooting After Telus OTA Froyo Update?

Nov 4, 2010

I recently did the Telus OTA Froyo update and now I am wondering if I can still root my phone? Did I screw the pooch buy installing the update? And it would seem most of the benefits of rooting were addressed in the update but I am interested in overclocking, better apps and partitioning. Seems like even with the update I still can't move all my apps to my SD card as I thought I might be able to and I've been told that is the dev's problem and not Google but with rooting can more be moved to my SD?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting And Installing Rom Best Option?

Jun 9, 2010

I really do love my Evo, but my only gripe is HTC Sense. I feel like it makes my phone extremely laggy. When I browse through my contacts, or text messages it feels extremely laggy. I am telling myself that the Froyo port will hopefully fix this annoyance for me. If not, is rooting and installing a custom rom my best option? Are their any roms out that support all the features of the Evo like front facing camera, voice to text, and all that other good stuff?

HTC Incredible :: Rooting Without Installing A Rom

Aug 19, 2010

I'm tired of waiting for the wifi hotspot feature in froyo. My question is can I just root my phone and use one of the wifi tether apps or do I have to install one of the ROM's. I really can't risk downtime on my phone, so I'm a little scarred of loading a ROM.

Nexus :: Rooting Without Installing Custom ROM

Mar 26, 2010

Theres not much I'm missing from stock android but wi-fi tethering would be really nice. Plus I would like to still be able to receive OTA updates that google offers. Can you root the phone and keep the stock ROM? If yes will the stock ROM still update? Is there a wi-fi tether app that doesn't require something like Cyanogen?

Motorola Droid X :: Rooting - Installing ROM?

Oct 31, 2010

I finally decided to take the challenges of rooting my phone and so far I have more than happy with the decision. I am having a few problems where I would like your help.

Just FYI: I downloaded the 928BG theme/ROM

1) Now when I connect my phone to computer via USB, it only lets me connect vias the Charge mode...I can't access the USB storage or windows media sync or PC modes...

2) I have weather bug elite pre-installed on my phone and it gives me the current temp in black font in the taskbar. Since I downloaded the new theme, the taskbar is now black and I can't see the weather updates. I tried to switch the weather bug font to white, however when I do, the app fails to load.

3) I downloaded Titanium backup and have tried to remove some of the bloatware. I have been successful with many of the apps, however I can't remove kindle at all. If I delete the app, it still shows in application drawer.

4) I installed the Free version of ROM manager app. My question is do I have to pay for the full version to install the other ROMS such as APEX or can I install those ROMS any other ways.

HTC Incredible :: Installing Custom Roms / Rooting

Sep 27, 2010

I have been using the INC for about 2 months now and i really do like the phone. As all of you know, the battery sucks. I picked up the 1500 battery about the same time the 2.2 came out and the battery life dropped over the 2.1/stocker. I thought it may have been the battery so i used the stock 1300 for a while and it was TERRIBLE. To add to the issue, the battery takes longer to charge then it does die. And thats why i am posting this. Could someone give me a list of what i need to do while rooting my phone and installing custom roms? that will speed up charge time? Normally i wont ask for help like this but i have zero time to sit down and read about everything. Just looking for a simple fix to get me by for the next few months.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing BusyBox With Mac?

Mar 26, 2010

I've been reading some info about rooting a droid here and at rootyourdroid.info, probably going to buy one this afternoon since the incredible isn't out yet. Rooting seems to be pretty universal between PC/Mac, but when it gets to the USB debugging/Busybox install it appears a PC is required. Anyone know if this can be done from a Mac or a Linux box? I don't currently have a Windows computer anywhere in the house, and don't really want to use my work laptop for this if I don't have to.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Problem After Rooting - Installing ROM

Nov 9, 2010

So I was able to get my phone rooted just fine with the super one click method. The problem I ran into though was installing a new ROM - going through the initial set up I was not able to see any any of the text that I was typing. Trying to set up my Google account was impossible because the email field just stayed blank no matter how many times I would press a letter.

Now I had this same problem months ago when I tried rooting before, and just like this time I did try installing the ROM a couple of times. However, after it not working I gave up and installed the Sprint Stock RUU.

General :: Galaxy S II - Rooting And Installing Cyanogenmod

Aug 30, 2012

I have had my Galaxy S II for about a year now, and i am thinking about rooting it and installing Cyanogenmod on it, but i need some info about the proccess: First of all: What happens when you root your phone? Is you data/apps deleted or is it safe?

Second: What about when i flash Cyanogenmod? Is my data/apps safe there or do i need to redownload the apps and backup my stuff?

Third: If i root my phone and do not flash a new ROM, will it be just as hard for me to update the firmware as on a jailbroken iOS device?

And lastly: I have heard about Titanium Backup, what does it backup? The OS, the apps and/or the data? These are the questions i need answered before starting the rooting process.

General :: Rooting And Installing Rom Huawei Y300?

May 14, 2014

I received an Y300 as a gift, haven't yet received it but I want to prepare the necessary things to root it and install custom roms on it. No, this isn't the first phone I install a custom rom to, as I have already played with an Optimus L5 of a friend.

a) How do I root the phone and install CWM or other recovery? I have found many tutorials but they are confusing, and require waiting for 2-3 days for the code to unlock the bootloader. In case you need to know, it probably is the normal Y300, the international one, so no Asian Model

b) How many ROMS are there for this phone? I like Cyanogenmod and stock roms the most, I can barely stand the stock rom in the phone, so I would like to install a new ROM on it ASAP.

c) By flashing the new ROM, do I lose IMEI or something like that (EFS Folder in Samsung phones)? If so, how can I back it up?

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing Custom Roms

Aug 27, 2010

I have been messing around with rooting and installing custom roms then going stock messing with settings then going to another to see how I like it. In the past, after I flashed a stock .sbf file I would be prompted for the Froyo OTA update. I just did it again last night. I was wondering, can you flash your phone too many times where you start to cause problems? And, does Verizon keep a check on how many times you've downloaded an update? Or, is it just not popping up because FRG22D is out?

Sep 22, 2010

I loaded the leaked 2.2 when it first became available and then deleted update.zip from the SDCard Directory. 2.2 worked fine.I reverted back to 2.1 in order to be able to get the OTA version of 2.2. Reverting worked fine.I rooted 2.1 using Universal Androot.I installed the following apps: Titanium Backup, Root Explorer, DroidXBootstrap,I did a nandroid backup using Bootstrap.Based on the reports I read today of the OTA 2.2, I decided to re-install the leaked 2.2 Using Root Explorer, I moved su from Bin to Xbin directory in order to preserve root status.I connected the Droid X to my laptop and copied Update.zip to the SDCard. Note that my SD card if almost full - only 25MB left after copying update.zip.I then booted, cleared cache and proceeded to run the update.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 7 - Back Up Device Before Rooting Or Installing Custom ROM?

May 7, 2014

I want to install Cyanogenmod and root my Nexus 7 2013, but I don't know what I should do to backup.

I previously tried to root and install CM on my Motorola Atrix HD on AT&T and successfully rooted it, unlocked the bootloader, and installed Clockwork Mod. I made sure to click backup and proceeded to delete the version of Android on the device and install Cyanogenmod. Cyanogenmod did not successfully install and I wanted to restore my device back to it the backup I made. It said that it did it successfully, but the device gets stuck on the AT&T logo when booting up and doesn't go past that.

I don't want to have to go through the same trouble with my Nexus 7 not being able to restore back to a backup in case something goes wrong. I'm using the Nexus Root Toolkit on my PC and will probably use the Cyanogenmod installer for installing CM11 (if there are any drawbacks to using the installer). What should I use to backup my device and how would I restore it back to stock if something goes wrong? And if I have a bricked device, how can I flash it back to stock?

New to rooting etc. Have ordered a Jiayu G3S MTK6589T 1.5Ghz phone and wanted to get the phone rooted and CWM installed so I can back up the existing ROM and try some new ones out.

Have seen guides for the G3 with the older 1.2Ghz CPU and also some other phones with the MTK6589T CPU but was unsure if these would work or brick my phone etc.

G3S or has rooted one and got CWM installed successfully. I usually go for CyanogenMod or a simple stock ROM

Motorola Droid X :: How To Installing Froyo 2.2

Aug 20, 2010

Ok this is very simple folks. I took a trip to the root forum for some info for us common folk.

This is a LEAKED release, therefore motorola has not officially pushed it to our devices yet.

To install is easy

First download the file update.zip

update.zip

Now

1: Move update.zip to your SD card, do not put it in any folders, leave it on the root of the SD card. Do not unzip it.

2:Turn off your phone

3:Boot your phone into recovery mode. Do this by holding the home button and power button at the same time, until the motorola logo appears.

4:Use camera zoom keys to scroll down to "Apply update.zip"

5:Reboot phone

If you wish to revert back to 2.1, follow this link

HTC Incredible :: Downloading / Installing Software With Froyo

Oct 22, 2010

I turned on my phone this morning and it said 5 updates were available, where 1 had to be installed manually. So I select to update the other 4 apps... one of the apps downloaded ok, two are reporting that the download was unsuccessful, and the 4th one (Fruit Ninja) hung on 'Installing...'. So I put the phone down, picked it up an hour later, and it still says 'Installing...'. Thing is, this is not the first time this has happened, as I routinely have apps hang while updating, either while downloading or installing since upgrading to Froyo. Anyone else have this issue? I am running a custom ROM (Virtuous), but dunno if that has anything to do with it or not.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Market Missing After Installing Froyo

Oct 15, 2010

I just installed Froyo in Kies. Everything went smoothly and the phone seems to work like a charm after installation. The only thing weird but not bad was that all the applications were in different order. BUT the first bad thing I noticed was that the Android Market application was gone! Is this normal? Can I get it back somehow?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting Froyo OTA To Delete Apps?

Aug 3, 2010

Alright so I just downloaded the Froyo OTA update.I don't want to do anything too crazy with my phone, however there are a couple of things I would like to change.
1. Delete HTC lock screen, I read if you delete the htclockscreen.apk it will just use the standard "vanilla" froyo one
2. Delete all of the bloatware apps (Sprint Nav, TV, Zone, Nascar, Football, etc)
3. Wifi Tether
Will I be able to do this with just root or do I need a custom ROM? I have read through XDA and on here but I am in over my head. I'm used to jailbreaking iPhones in one step or just installing Preware.I really don't want to have to reset my phone since I have finally got it set up and looking the way I like.Can someone point me in the direction of what I need to do (unrevoked?) to enable the three things I listed? Because I am lost with rooting and unlocking nand and custom ROMs and kernels.Is it even possible to root the OTA right now, or do I need to wait?

HTC Incredible :: Rooting - What Will Happen With OTA Froyo?

Aug 5, 2010

Sorry if this has been asked before -

With the ease of the unrevoked root method, I'm thinking about rooting my Incredible.

I'm by no means an advanced user (command line what?), but would definitely like to download some of the more popular root-only applications.

I have no intentions of messing with new roms/kernels...just wifi tethering, nandroid, etc.

What will happen when the official Froyo update comes out? Will I be able to upgrade without trouble?

I've looked at the sticky about reverting to stock in case something goes wrong, and it looks a little over my head. Will I have to do that to enjoy the official Froyo update?
