HTC EVO 4G :: Stock 2.2 - Simplest And Easiest Way To Root?
Sep 24, 2010
I'm looking for advice on the simplest and easiest way to root. I know theres something that wipes the phone, rolls back to 2.1 and then roots it. I just got my second eEo because my first overheats. It came with 2.2, is that an issue? What do I need to know about ROMs? I hear fresh evo is a good one. I don't mind losing all the sprint stuff as well as HTC. I prefer launcher pro so any widget loss doesn't bother me. I heard about the method to rollback 2.2, root it then whatever, but everywhere I found today from that day says that a simpler method should be out in a couple weeks. It has been a month, is there a simple point and click method yet?
So I finally got the 2.0 root off that the guy before me had this phone on. He rooted it with droid mod, and that seemed pretty easy to use. I'm wondering and if there is someone who has more experience with this than I what is the easiest way for me to root my stock 2.1 droid?
My mom will soon be getting my phone since I will be buying new when they one day releases the dual-core phones. I also have some sound problems when calling so I thought it would be easiest just to unroot the phone. So my question is: What is the easiest way to get from rooted to stock 2.1 ROM.
I have been trying to find step by step instructions on how to install stock android on my AT&T S4 for the past 30 min...but its complicated. Is there a way a person can install stock android, like installing Windows on a PC?
I went to best buy to exchange my evo cause of some minor issues. It had the new ota update installed so I thought it was a pain in the butt to root it. So I got the new evo and I checked the software number and I have 1.32.651.6. Is it easier to update this phone to the new ota and use the simple root method over in xda or do it manually using the 1.32.651.6?
have leak #3 and I got the OTA update a few days ago.I would like to go to ROOT.using EvilEris 3.0 I'm seeing all sorts of ways to do this..and looking for the simpilist fastest way.I'm familiar with the "put a file in the root of the SD card" and re-boot method. Is that the easiest way to get going? If so - what file do I need? "EvilEris3.0.zip" or "PB00IMG.zip" (and if so - do I need a "latest" one)?
Well, upon attempting to read as much as possible before taking the plunge, I've run across a few methods to accomplish the same thing. I'm currently running 2.1 OTA(stock) and wanted the most basic way to root with the least chance of bricking.
I've gone through the guides, but have also run into DroidMod's guide on flashing 2.1 with recovery.
RSD is a little intimidating to me and I'm afraid if I breathe wrong on the phone, it will become a paperweight.
Is using RSD the only/easiest way to gain root? Sorry for the redundant question, however there are a few threads on this topic and dated within a few months of one another and I'm which route to take.
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.
If this has been asked I cannot find it. What is the easiest, quickest method for root right now? There seems to be a new method being developed every week. I know there are basebands available to load that will help with the signal issues. Are there fixes with root that will resolve the audio issue with Pandora?
Basically topic. I know the simplest way to do it would have been to Google Sync my contacts into my Gmail from my BB then sync them to the EVO, but unfortunately, I can't do that now. The SIM in my BB is out thanks to my number transfer so no data, and I didn't have Google Sync installed.
I have a little over 200 contacts in my BB, and as I'm sure you understand putting all of them in manually is near insanity. Anyone in the same boat as me? Any solutions to this or is a long night of manual contact switching in my future?
What is the simplest way to draw pixels, lines and circles on a View?I want to move a cross cursor around, so nothing particularly intensive.I thought I could extend SurfaceView and add it to an XML and it would just work, but it just appears black, however, when I look at the layout view of localmap.xml in eclipse, the graphics appear as expected. Any ideas? My onDraw is never called on the emulator, and even calling invalidate on the class makes no difference. I shall keep trying but can anyone see anything I've missed? or is there a better way entirely? Code...
I have a cross-platform C library that I need to compile for Android as a *.so file. The library consist of many .c and .h files, and it use autotools as it's buid system. (./configure && make dep && make). Afaik, the library does not depend on other libraries, other than libc and OpenSSL (which should be present on Andriod).
I'm trying to find the simplest (read fastest in terms or not needing to read hundreds of pages of manuals and then apply try && fail brute-force approaches to complete the task) way of getting the library off my machine in source code form, and into the Android phones as a .so. The library will eventually be accessed from Java's native library interface. For development, I have both Windows and Debian machines on my desk.
Quick question that will probably turn into a million... can I root and keep my stock Rom? For the moment I don't want to change it, just root the phone. Can I use the one click method through steps 1 - 3 and then just reboot my phone to leave the stock rom ok there? And will I lose everything? I have my back up pro that can help with the back up, can I just restore that after? And will it back up my home screens too? I don't want to go through that process of setting them up again.
I've been real happy so far with Stock N1 and universal androot. I love the root apps. Now that the update is out (2.2.1. frg83) I wanted to update and still have root access on stock. I was not able to update because I had deleted stock apps like amazon, twitter, etc., with titanium. I had to flash a stock ROM and then update to 2.2.1 worked, but no root access. I even unlocked the bootloader to see if that would give me instant root but it didn't.
How can I go about getting root access on my n1 with 2.2.1.? I want to run a stock ROM and use rooted apps like titanium. Also to get future updates like gingerbread OTA. I do not want a custom ROM like cyanogen. Just stock 2.2.1. with root access. Whats the easiest way to achieve this? I tried installing amon ra, and it still wouldn't give me root access, couldn't install superuser,busybox, etc.
So I have used the one click root thingy. Have the superuser app. Tested. I have root (look screenshot). Now I want to install busy box. When I got the app from market to install the latest I got this. What I want to know. Is it safe and if so whats safe to erase from the system folder. (would kinda like to get rid of the stocks and footprints app) but really not sure its not linked somehow and I get some big system error , since these apps run all the time. (actually I want to install busy box to be able to remove these apps anyway). I installed titanium backup and it installed busybox version 16 or soemthing. Problem is other apps like the cache cleaner doesnt find busybox installed even if I do it via titanium app.
First I only want to root to get rid of the preloaded apps that were on my phone. I know on my D1 I could use titanium backup to do so. Will this method work on the D inc? Also I want the wireless tether back. So can I Just root my phone without having to load a ROM to my phone? Also I have noticed in some of the video how-to's they show some files on your computer that you use to do the root but haven't seen any that show where you get the files from. I am also running Froyo 2.2.
So I spent hours searching for the stock ROM for my HTC Desire 300, so that I could unroot it. Then I deleted the entire OS/Rom by mistake and was left with a brick. Finally, I managed to find this stock version. It's rooted, and has the same SuperSu error about updating. Is there any way for me to remove the root files from this zip? so that the phone won't be rooted when I flash the rom? Which files would I remove?
I recently converted to BH_MAN stock BH2 image + root. I'm having the following situation:After the install and performing the Master reset everything is working fine, I proceeded to download some applications and everything was operational. I rebooted my phone (for some reason I do not recall right now, happened 2 days ago) and when it came up, I had several applications corrupted: There was an icon in the same place that the original was with the same name but different icon, and if I clicked it would advise that the application was not installed. I would go to my downloads and the application management sections and see the application and it wouldn't work till I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it.Now, last night I also uninstalled the T-Mobile "My Account" software and let my battery drain out completely to have it sync correctly (that was another problem I was having, batt would say I was at 20% and I had 4 bars in the screen, fixed now) and once I let it charge completely I powered it on and some applications were uninstalled again, but the T-Mobile Account software was there again! Can anyone explain if this is a permanent problem or is there something to be done?
I was wondering the biggest difference between stock and root. I was rooted before update but don't know if wanna go through RSWD lite and everything like that. I know overclocking and WiFi tether but what else?
