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?

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting And Custom ROMs

Nov 24, 2010

I have searched here and via Google searches about Rooting and custom ROMs. I still am not quite sure what any of it means. I know rooting allows access to things that you normally cannot do such as removing HTC and Sprint apps. Which I would LOVE to do. I mean, who the hell wants the stock widget anyway?

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?

LG Ally :: Basics Of Rooting - Recovery And Custom ROMs

Aug 19, 2010

I'm feeling the itch to go beyond the standard settings in Android and get into rooting. I'm following along with a lot of the developments here, but I often feel like I'm missing a lot of the background knowledge and vocabulary (what is recovery, how does one access it, what are all these different programs - nandroid, adb, etc.) to have a really strong grasp of what's going on here.

Now, if this were my computer, I'd just hop right in and start following along as best I can and mess things up along the way, no biggie, I have multiple computers and I'm competent to fix them.

I don't have a landline though, so I want to be a little more prepared before I accidentally brick my link to the outside world. Is there a good "tinkering with Android primer" out there that any of you would recommend?

Also, how easy is it to get back from whence I came on the Ally? I read the thread on unrooting, and I honestly didn't understand a lot of it, so I'm just looking for a "not gonna happen" or "it'll be easy when you finally understand."

Android :: Best Site For Rooting And Applying Custom ROMs?

Jan 4, 2010

So I am pretty computer savvy but just getting into the phone scene. Wondering what site is best for the hacker side talk of phones?
Androidcommunity vs Androidforums vs XDA dev forums?

Which is better for instructions on rootings and applying custom ROMs?
Which is better for finding ROMs?
Which has more users?
Which has more experts?

Anyone familiar with the other site or one I may not know about can fill me in a bit? I seem to like this site the most but if there is more information elsewhere, I may need to pool my resources. I would prefer for android forums to be my 1 stop shop n go.

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting - Wipe Data - Flash Custom Roms?

Jun 3, 2010

I looked over at the instructions and it says all you data will be wiped. So rooting will likely be the absolute first thing I do. After you root its stated you can flash custom roms. Can someone go more in depth on this? Will Sense not work anymore once the phone is rooted? Any other points of interest that is worth noting?

General :: Security Concerns About Rooting / Custom Roms

Dec 26, 2012

So after having seen that I could use CyanogenMod 10.1 to get version 4.2.1 onto my Tab, I've gained a particular interest in rooting my p3113. With that said, I still have concerns about security with custom roms;

-How do I make sure I am as secure as possible?
-Is it still safe to purchase with Google Wallet on the Play Store?
-What should I avoid in order to remain safe?

I know the "risks" involved in rooting a device, although following instructions will assure that such issues do not occure. So other than the actual security issues, I need no additional information

Motorola Droid :: Rooting 2.1 ROMS

Feb 18, 2010

I'm rooted, and swap roms, backup everything pretty confidently (thanks again to Joe for helping me get in the pool).

But there are some things I don't understand. I really want to go to a 2.1 ROM. I've tried a few with verying degrees of happyness, and some of the later ones I've tried just send me through enless reboot cycles. I've tried Pete's new one (figuring if anybody put out something dependable it would be him) and though it boots up FAST and runs great, after playing around for a while it sends me through reboot cycles and freezes up.

I always follow all instructions to the "T", so it makes no sense that others are having success when I am not. Is there some other process that I have to go through that are just unspoken "common sense" steps among the more advanced users that aren't outlined in install instructions? Or am I just supposed to let the phone do it's thing for a while after installing? It just makes me nervouse when it is looping through 3-5 reboots in a row.

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?

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Backup Data Before Installing New Roms

Sep 30, 2010

So I'm wondering about the best way to backup apps and data before installing new roms since it usually involves a full system+data wipe. Right now I use Titanium Backup and then restore all user apps when I have the new Rom loaded. While this works pretty well, I still have to go back and change all my settings, set up my accounts, etc. Shouldn't there be some way to preserve this data? Also very frustrating is that I have to re add all my widgets in Launcherpro. Any way to get a real backup of that too? The process isn't too bad right now, but as more and more Roms come for the droid x, I'd rather not have to repeat the setup process every time.

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.

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.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting - Wifi Tether - ROMS

Aug 27, 2010

Finally going to make the root leap on my D1 today.

I have some pretty specific and limited needs and I have been reading EVERYTHING on rooting for the last two weeks and still don't have a clear idea on a few tidbits.

Here is what I hope to achieve by rooting:

1. Wireless wifi tether

2. Improved battery life

3. Eliminate my wifi problems that came with FRG01B OTA

4. Be AT LEAST as smooth and fast as my current setup

5. Be AT LEAST as reliable/bug-free as my current stock Froyo

I am entirely satisfied with the look and feel of my device so I don't NEED to have any themes etc...

I know through research that some ROM's provide easy wifi tethering and some do not. I need one that does since that is my prime requirement.

I am also concerned about the new OTA this week screwing up my root access before or after I root the device.

In reading a bazillion threads everyone keeps saying that each phone is unique in what ROMS/Kernels the phone will "like" which I find quite baffling honestly...but I guess you all know what you are talking about.

I would not even change ROM or kernel if I can achieve my 5 requirements, but from what I see, I do need to change my ROM at the least.

Any recommendations on which ROM's to try? Please note any ROM that does not allow easy wifi tethering is a waste of my time.

I already have ROM Manager, SetCPU and Titanium Backup all queued up on APPBrain for me and I will be pulling the trigger on this today.

I have read all the instructions on rooting the "hard way" and the "easy way" and my time is very valuable so I will use easyroot or the other one...Universal Androot.

Motorola Droid X :: Re-installing Leaked 2.2 After Reverting Back To 2.1 And Rooting

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.

Motorola Droid X :: With Root Why Do We Need Custom Roms?

Aug 5, 2010

Please read this before you assume I'm an idiot Anyways, so my thinking is, we can root our Droid X. This gives us access to every system file. amirite? If that's the case, shouldn't it be possible to literally replace everything using some super user priviledged apk? I know linux well, and I know some android development stuff, but I don't know anything about custom roms (on android at least) and how efuse works, so I obviously could be completely off base here.The only hitch I see would be that while the phone is running, many many many of these files are likely in use. It just seems there would be some way to close everything (and I mean EVERYTHING), with the phone still running, and replace all system files with a new set.Now I'm not entirely savvy on how efuse works, and I'm even less sure on how changing the system this way would, from efuse's eyes, differ from a full custom rom flashing, and if, if it did work, you'd still be bricked on the next reboot.Thoughts? I mean it at least seems that we could find a way to replace motoBlur.
