Motorola Droid :: Unable To Install Easy Root

Aug 6, 2010

I'm having a problem downloading Easy Root..I bought it once, refunded it because I didn't have anough money in my account, then bought it again the same day...andnow it finally went through this morning and it says purchased because I got paid this morning...but when I try to click install it says "Download unsuccessful"...I've tried everything to get it to install but it won't work and I can't refund it again. If I could refund it again I would be able to successfully install it like I did with Rom manager and setCPU.

Motorola Droid : Unable To Do Some Future Root Process Because Of A Glitch Now

Jun 19, 2010

I was running stock 2.1 on my Droid and I recently rooted it using the instructions here: How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid. It went off without a hitch. Then, I went to Froyo 2.2, as found here: Download: Newer Motorola Droid Froyo Leak FRF57 | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog.

After switching to Froyo, it appeared that I was having some issues with my root. I still had the superuser ninja, and I could still use Terminal Emulator. When I opened upTitanium Backup though, it asked me to allow permission which I did, and then it told me that I was not rooted (Setup behaved similarly). So I went and applied the update patch available on the Droid-Life page where I got Froyo and it appeared to work. To my knowledge I AM rooted. I have a custom boot animation and Titanium and Setcpu are working fine. Titanium says my root access is ok and that I am using busybox 1.15.3 from app. All is well, EXCEPT that when I try to use the cp command via terminal emulator I cannot. I recently tried to add a custom boot animation using the following:

mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /Dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cp /sdcard/ /system/media/
mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

After the first line of code I got:usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-type] device directory

After the second line however I got the error cp not found. HOWEVER, I was able to apply the boot animation using root explorer. Also, i tested the command busybox and got busybox not found. I can still utilize cd /system app though.

Basically I need to know if I am only partially rooted. I am having a ball with this phone and I would hate to be unable to do some future root process because of a glitch now.

HTC Incredible :: Getting Adfree To Work

HTC Incredible :: Get Adfree Android Working

Jun 24, 2010

i take no credit for this, just found it over on XDA. Here's how to get this working

1. Search for Adfree Android on the market
2. Install and run
3. allow it to download and install new hosts file, it will copy it to your sdcard and try to replace /system/etc/hosts but fail (it should reboot the phone shortly)
3a. Phone may reboot, this is fine, don't worry. if it doesn't reboot, check your SD card for a file simply named "hosts". if it's there, then continue on.
4. Power off the phone and hold Volume Down and power.
5. Use volume down to select recovery
6. In clockwork recovery volume down to "partitions menu" and hit the track pad to select
7. Select "mount /system", "mount /sdcard" and "mount /data"
8. Plug in your usb cord and open a command line on your pc
9. enter adb shell and type: cp /sdcard/hosts /data/data/hosts (This copies the AdFree hosts file from the SD Card to the /data partition, where it can be edited by AdFree)
10. mv /system/etc/hosts /system/etc/hosts.bak (This renames the current hosts file, rather than deleting it, should you ever want to remove AdFree and return to the original hosts file)
11. ln -s /data/data/hosts /system/etc/hosts (This creates a symbolic link, which allows AdFree to edit the hosts file stored in /data while allowing the OS to use the file as if it were stored in /system. You won't need to reboot into recovery each time you want to update the hosts file!)
12. Reboot and enjoy.

EDIT: updated with new method. just did this myself and it works great. it updates on it's own now.

ANOTHER EDIT: I just had a guy PM me asking "what if the phone doesn't reboot on step 3?"

it may or may not reboot. bottom line is that we want the "hosts" file to get downloaded from Adfree onto our SD card. so if the phone doesn't do an instant reboot when getting the hosts, just check your SD card for a file named "hosts". if it is there, then you are good to continue on and follow the rest of the steps. let me know if you need any further help. i did it the old way about a week or so ago, and then did it the new way last night so that i could have Adfree automatically update the hosts file on its own. the new method does work flawlessly.

Motorola Droid :: Root 2.1 -> OTA 2.2 -> Lost Root But Superuser Permission Icon Still Appears

Aug 11, 2010

Here is the scenario:
Motorola Droid - Original

1. Rooted 2.1, then
2. OTA Stock Update to 2.2, then
3. Seem to have lost root, However - I still have the Superuser Permissions Icon.

I use Barnacle for WiFi Tether - I get a "Permission Denied" error when I try to start the application. I also went into the terminal emulator and tried an "su" which also gave a permission denied response. I tried "sudo" and also got permission denied response. Others have told me this is common with this progression of events. However, How do I now ROOT 2.2 in this scenario?

Motorola Droid :: Root-unroot Then Force Upgrade To 2.1 - Want To Root Again Back To 2.01

Apr 3, 2010

I used DroidMod to root when I had 2.01. When 2.1 became available, I "un-rooted" then forced update to 2.1. Well to be honest, it is really slow and laggy. I now want to go back to DroidMod, but nothing I have tried seems to work.

General :: AdFree / AdAway - Wireless Tether For PC Ad Blocking

Jun 30, 2012

I used AdFree on my Incredible. When I would run Wireless Tether, it would also block ads on my PC. I never even got a single YouTube, Pandora, or Hulu ad. I don't know exactly how it was done; it just worked.

Now, I'm on a rooted Rezound using AdAway. It blocks ads on my device, but not on my PC when tethered as AdFree did on my Incredible. I tested by accessing one of the blocked URLs in the hosts was blocked on my device, not on my PC.

I thought maybe the webserver needed to be enabled, but no, that wasn't it. I've tried with both AdFree and AdAway, cleared DNS cache, etc. Is there some setting I'm missing in either Wireless Tether or AdAway? I know it's possible somehow; I've changed nothing on my PC and it worked perfectly on my Incredible.

Motorola Droid :: Root Problems - App - No Root Access

May 10, 2010

I'm trying to gain root and having some problems...

I had my droid rooted for some time, running droid mod 1.0. All was well until recently the battery life turned to shit (followed all guides to resolve recent OTA update issues, but still shitty.) Because of this, I decided I would go back to stock, since I couldn't justify the rom's features if the battery would kick out after 16 hours. So I returned to stock no problem and received the OTA to upgrade to 2.1.

After getting the upgrade to 2.1, I wanted to at least have root access to run a few programs. I followed this guide:

to get SPRecovery back on my phone. Everything went well, it all checked out. After that I used SPRecovery to install the root This worked fine, the root access app is in my tray and everything seems to be fine... HOWEVER when opening programs that require root access (setcpu and adfree are the ones I've tried) they say I don't have root access. I have tried reinstalling the file to no luck. USB debugging is ON. Is there a special to gain root on 2.1 (I saw no posts about that)? Is there some setting I missed this time around that I didn't the first time I rooted?

HTC EVO 4G :: Seemingly Unable To Root

Jul 8, 2010

I've tried to follow the Idiot proof guide, but that doesn't work because unrevoked no longer works after the OTA. I've tried to follow other web guides that has you place into the root directory, hold volume down and power and boot to the HBoot thing. Well, that loads, it searches for and finds PC36, and starts to load from it through the blue progress bar. After the bar is finished, it waits a few seconds, then says "Main version is older! Update Fail! Do you want to reboot the device?" And I can not find any other way to continue. The only options I've found to root are either do this with the P36 or unrevoked, which is now not working.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Unable To Root B2 To 2.1+ Ourselves?

Jun 22, 2010

Excuse my lack of knowledge, but... why is it that we are unable to root the B2 to 2.1+ ourselves? We did it with 1.6 way before Samsung announced anything. I thought Google publicly release the source codes to each Android OS. Can't we take the source and modify it to be usable on the B2? Coudn't we possibly take 2.1+ from another (possibly Samsung) phone and transfer the data over? We know Samsung's claim that the B2 could not handle 2.1+ is pure BS.

General :: Unable To Get Root Access On Evo 4G?

Feb 23, 2012

This is now the second day that I'm trying to root my Evo 4G. So far, I've unlocked the bootloader using the method, but I can't get root access. I think my problem is an old version of hboot (0.99.0001, got it from latest HTC software update [2.3.4]), since the Revolutionary tool is saying that my version isn't supported. I've looked all over for how to update my hboot to 2.15 or 2.16, but nothing has worked. I still have S-ON.

I've tried flashing Amon Ra via command prompt (hangs on "waiting for device") and using the Android Flasher program (hangs on "please wait while your phone is flashed"). I've followed all the steps in the first method on this guide (androidforums com/evo-4g-all-things-root/488901-revised-rooting-gingerbread-2-3-5-dummies-guide.html, but to no avail.

How in the world do I go about rooting this thing? Or even just updating my hboot version?

General :: Unable To Root LG E400 After Update?

Aug 17, 2013

I updated my LG E400's firmware from 10J to 10L last with PC Sync. After upgrading the root was still intact. SuperUser still installed, though I had to install Lucky Patcher and had to select Patch to Android for the Android Market again. However, when I tapped About phone in Settings, there was an error and a force close. I looked up the LG firmware site and downloaded the 10L firmware and updated with KDZ updater. The problem started right after that.

I have not been able to root with any ninja script, doomlord script, superoneclick. I have tried reverting to an older firmware (the original version 10J cannot be downloaded) 10D or 10I I think, but got the same error while trying to root. Finally, I tried the "without computer" means of rooting like framaroot and Exynosabuse but none worked. So here I have a fine phone with the latest firmware but with all crap like the LG Keyboard and Google Search, Remote Talk, Play Book, Weather and stuff that I can't get rid off. Also, I can't install Link2SD to increase internal memory.

HTC Eris :: Unable To See Other Partitions After Using Root Explorer Application

Jul 31, 2010

I have been reading about the sdcard partitioning on the forum here and I thought I might ask a question that I couldn't find along my travels whilst reading. I have a 16GB SDcard class 6 and here is my question. I have a HTC Desire with setROM 4.5, before I installed this ROM I partitioned my sdcard with a 512MB ext partition using ROM Manager (paid version), now everything seemed to work just fine with the flash etc, but when I go into the SD card + phone storage I see this: When I use Root Explorer application, I cant see the other partition (512MB one) I made? Can anyone advise if this is normal? I can move my apps to sd though through the manage applications section. I should add, I have no idea why I even created this external partition, do i even need it?
