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.
What is the easiest way to root/unroot. Ive seen videos on easy root that looked pretty damn easy, just didn't know if it actually worked i guess it looked too easy. The only thing I want to do with root is get some nice themes more thank likely i won't overclock. Thanks in advance.
I had a droid rooted and now I'm finally going to root my X. I was going to use the one click root because I honestly just don't want to deal with a lot of hassle. I read that the universal one click root doesn't work if I am already running Froyo. Is there a one click option that I can use?
Have tried z4 mod for the last hour and it hasn't worked. Also tried the one-click rooting solution posted here and that didn't work:The Official One-Click Rooting Solution for Droid Thread!!! :D :D LATEST: V2.0.4.Any apps that people have successfully used on the original Droid?
We need one click root for the droid! I know it's pretty easy already to root, but the one click root installs the nandroid and all the other stuff that scares people off (including me) to root. That would increase the DROID rooting community by so much I think. A developer should create a one click root apk. right before android 2.1 where it roots your DROID (like it did for the G1 and others) and installs all the necessary stuff along with you just having to then install the ROM right after. I don't know, it is just a thought.That is what made the G1 and Mytouch3g community grow so quickly...what do you guys think?!
I've used DMudpater before to unroot with no problems. I just did it a few minutes ago and I'm able to get past the M logo and the Eye. However, once the phone starts to load up, I get nothing but a rapid succession of FC's for every app on my phone. After the FCs, my screen is COMPLETELY BLACK except for the status bar, which shows a date of December 31, 1969 and shows a time of 7:05PM (it's actually 4:15PM where I'm at). There's no service in the status bar.
I changed all the apps back from bak to apk. I then moved bin to xbin and for some reason forgot to unroot. I then downloaded the 2.2 OTA and now phone is stuck on the M Logo. From my understanding I can't flash so now what to do? BTW I'm using the Terminal Emulator for rooting not ADB.
No immediate plans to but does anyone know how to? I assume delete superuser.apk su and busybox. Was there an original version of su that got overwritten? The only other dx we have that isn't rooted is a hundred miles away but i could try to fish su out of it and check the attributes on it. Anyone ponder this yet? May not be necessaryto do as froyo may wipe anyway. Then again birdman says 2.2 is patched and our 2.1 exploit doesn't work. Meaning an ota from vzw will lock us out.
I would love to unroot using the RSD Lite tool and USB, but the reason I'm sending my phone back (the reason for unrooting) is that the USB port is broken. So, is there a way to unroot without connecting the phone to a PC using USB? Can I copy files to the SD card and unroot from the SD card?
okay so im running stock 2.2 on my motorola droid 1. is there any way i can just unroot it as easily as i rooted it? im having some trouble with my phone and i need to take it back i tried factory reseting it but su is still on there..
I rooted my phone by following All-One-Guide to Rooting, Deodexing, and Installing a Custom ROM/Theme (And How to Unbrick Droid X) and I downloaded rubix. but I cannot proceed from here. I am not using any extra apps that i could not use, nor the wonderful homepages. How can i set the HomePages look like others'? My look just like the unrooted phone. I wanna have huge clock, but i cannot find any of them after i rooted my phone. So can anyone let me know how to find those widgets(themes?) or how to unroot my phone?
I've looked all over this forum, but can't find instructions on unrooting my phone. As a secondary question, does anyone know if rooting the phone invalidates the warranty on the hardware? I'm having a lot of issues with the back key and want to return the phone tomorrow.
I'm pretty new when it comes to rooting and whatnot, but I gave it a shot. It worked well. I currently have Cyanogen 5.0.5 on my phone and I love it! I heard that the OTA 2.1 is finally out, and I wanted to unroot and try it to compare against my ROM. I have read of ways to do this, but I think my situation is a little more unique. I attempted to revert back to stock via ROM Manager. I must have done the wrong thing, so I ended up just reinstalling the update.zip file from my SD Card. I resigned into Google and it was just like the first time I rooted. I re-downloaded ROM Manager and when I try to "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery", I get the error message: "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands." The "reboot into recovery" also does not work. I can still hold "X" and power on, but I just get the clockwork recovery menu, and end up nowhere but back to Cyanogen. I love Cyan and will probably stick with it, but nothing as far as root apps work anymore. DM also doesn't work for me anymore. When I enter recovery mode, it gives me the option to boot from update.zip, or factory reset. Would factory reset mess everything up? Any help/ideas?
I have a Droid with CM6 currently. I am thinking of giving the phone to my wife and getting a Droid X (unless someone here knows of a better phone). If I do this, I think it would be best for her to have an unrooted Stock Droid. I did this before with a Droid I had to send in: Unroot from Bugless .4 to Stock 2.1 But is there a 2.2 SBF to install? Or do I need to install 2.1 then wait for the update?
ok so wouldnt this make sense or am i missing something. if you did want to unroot for the 2.1 update which im obviously not gunna do now that i just saw a post for the desire rom. couldnt you just restore your phone. like master reset? prob a stupid question so im sorry haha.
I have used RSD Lite before to re-root my phone after applying 2.1 so I am comfortable using it again. I was just wondering if there is an easier way to unroot my phone. I know all of you are saying why unroot? Well I really don't utilize the root at all anymore. I originally did it to change the status bar to black (this is prolly the only thing that I will miss), to be able to downloas Led Hack (I recently uninstalled it and it appears that the leds turn off now in 2.2, I dunno if that was fixed in 2.1), and for wireless and wired tether (pdanet works without rooting and I have never once used the wireless tether other than to they and see if it works. It seems that I have had more problems with rooting then when my phone was unrooted.
Yea my phone is faster now bc of OC but unrooted it wasn't that slow anyway and I don't know if anyone else is having this problem but I get email notifications all the time even when I do not have a new email and it is really bothering me. So after that rant I was just wondering if there was an easier way to unroot. I tried downloading the rom from rom manager verizon 2.0.1 stock without root odexed and it gave me some error when installing. So if I have to use RSD Lite I will I was jsut wondering if there was an easier way. Also since I will not be rooted anymore is there any other program out there that saves data other than TiBu? I take it I will not be able to restore data with TiBu being unrooted. Don't know if this matters with RSD Lite but right now I am on BB 0.4 using chevy 1g kernal with the most updated baseband of .01P
So my screen, or something else, about my phone died. I'm beginning to think it's not the screen and actually the phone itself (since WaveSecure doesn't seem to be able to remotely lock / alarm the phone), in which case this post is moot. In either case, there is no way to unroot the phone without being able to mount the phone, correct? Since I can't see anything on the screen I obviously can't mount it. I'd rather not try to have them replace a rooted phone though. If the phone is fried, will they be able to detect that it was rooted?
Is there any way to unroot my phone without losing data? i know exactly how to root and get it back to stock, but i realize this deletes all my apps. i know i can just redownload them from the market, but i dont want to go through all the trouble of setting all mynotification settings for like handcent, and locale, and stuff like that. is there update.zip that allows me to go back to nonroote 2.0.1 and have it appear just the way it was before i rooted? (with my apps and all my stuff still on it?)
Everyone is always so concerned about unrooting, removing su, removing busybox, etc., and so-forth. Well, finally an extremely simply solution. Almost too simple. Go to the Market and install SholesMod Updater. Sure it's $5, but it does it all for ya. Just install the application like any other, then open it. Select "Stock 2.0.1 (No root)" and let it do it's thing. And no one is the wiser. Hope this puts some minds at ease.
I've unrooted from Bugless Beast v.4 to a stock 2.1 via How To: Unroot the Motorola Droid | TheUnlockr. So basically I used RSDLite and did the steps listed on that site. I used their .sbf file as well. Everything seems to work except one thing. I cant update or install Facebook, Maps, and Goggles. If you look at the comments in that link, you'll see that a couple of people have the same issue. It says "installation error". "Package file not signed correctly".
I unrooted because I need to send my phone in for a replacement and I'm not trying to void my warranty. When I go into about phone it says: Firmware version: 2.1-update 1 (which is correct) Baseband: C_01.3E.03P Kernal: 2.6.26-omap1-gb5cd919 android-build@apa26 #1 Build: voles-userdebug 2.1-update1 ESE53 25914 test-keys
