General :: Cerberus Or PhoneLocator Pro / Rooted And Non-Rooted?

Sep 4, 2012

Which security software would you say is better for a non-rooted/rooted Android?

I have Cerberus on my SGS3 (Rooted), but a friend of mine has a non rooted SGS3 and wants to buy either Phone locator Pro or Cerberus.

1. (For Non-Rooted) In your mind, which would you say is better and why?

2. (Rooted) In your mind, which would you say is better and why?

Nexus :: Upgrading Rooted ERE27 To Rooted FRF91

Jul 2, 2010

I am sure it's been answered but I failed completely in finding what directions for my exact state and being a n00b when it comes to rooting, I've decided to ask first.

I am currently on rooted T-Mobile's ERE27. This morning I got OTA upgrade, however, when I tried to install it I got the "verification failed" message. After I restarted the phone, I looked at the SD card and found no of any kind.

Several questions:
1) Should I wait for an OTA? Will an OTA update work on rooted Nexus?
2) If I have to do it manually, can someone please explain the steps I should take or link me to a guide that fits my state?
3) Will an upgrade, manual or OTA, wipe the phone?

HTC Incredible :: How Do I Go From Rooted 2.2 Leak To Rooted 2.2 Official?

Sep 8, 2010

I rooted my phone recently and installed the leaked 2.2 update.I ran Unrevoked as well as Unrevoked Forever, so I have S-OFF on my phone.I want to now put the official 2.2 release on my phone, while of course keeping my root.It would be best to keep my data on there, but if I have to run a Titanium backup and restore once it's installed, that's okay too.I just need to know the process to do this and where to get the update.I am running the leaked 2.2 Froyo update from May and I have the radio.

Nexus :: Rooted N1 Vs. Rooted Incredible

Mar 26, 2010

I'm a VZW subscriber. I currently use a Storm 2 (HATE IT). I have been waiting... and waiting for the N1. I have a friend that works in the higher ups of VZW (not retail). I was just giving him shit the other day about the N1 situation. He said, "you should just get the Incredible it has slight better specs and the optical mouse.". I then told him my dislike for Sense UI. He said, "well then just root it".Would there be any difference between a rooted N1 and a rooted Incredible? Wouldn't they then have the exact same OS? (Provided I was going to flash it with Cyanogen). Thusly I would have the same phone with better specs, if I got the Inc over the N1. Is this flawed thinking? Since the N1 is Googles phone and gets updates first. When you root and flash with a diff ROM, do you then not get updates? I'm guessing you would be reliant on the updates to that ROM which ever MOD you choose.

Motorola Droid :: Moto Droid Rooted Or Eris Rooted

May 11, 2010

Currently I have an Eris with v3 Leak meaning I can't root. But my wife loves my phone so I plan on giving her mine and either getting another eris and rooting or a Moto Droid and rooting. I've been trying to read up on the Droid and the different ROMS available and have some questions.First I want to make a few things clear:

1. This IS NOT a phone comparison.

2. The Incredilble IS NOT an option since it can't be rooted and I don't want to spend $200 on it.

3. I'm looking for WELL INFORMED OPINIONS, if you don't have one keep moving there is nothing to see here.

To be fair I've obviously done a lot more reading on the Eris which is why I'm looking for well informed opinions from Droid owners that way I can make a well informed decision.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Rooted Hero Vs Rooted Moment

Jan 15, 2010

There's been a lot of comparison between the stock Hero and Moment but I was wondering if anyone has played with both a rooted Hero and Moment. Becoming more and more set on switching over to the Hero.Rooted & got CL14 on my Moment last night thanks to zefie, numus, and the great guys at sdx, but maybe I just had my expectations too high as I didn't see a large improvement over the stock kernel & ROM, esp in speed (did fix the battery meter and improved battery life thank god!).I understand rooting a Hero makes it faster but by how much? How does it compare to a rooted Moment running a home replacement app (like PandaHome)? This way I feel it's comparing apples to apples in terms of experience, as opposed to compared to a rooted Moment running stock home.Ever since I got the Moment, I've been trying to get Sense-like stuff on it (like a lot of ppl haha). Coming from the less-sophisticated BB Curve, I was surprised when stock Android didn't support things like Facebook integration (I know it's coming in 2.1, but HTC has it now).

General :: Updating Rooted GS3 OTA?

Sep 4, 2013

I rooted my AT&T GS3, with the intentions of putting CM10 on it. However, I've realized that I have no real need for a custom ROM, as my phone already does everything it needs to. In addition, I don't want to risk bricking my phone.I got the notification for an update to Android 4.2.1, from what my phone is running now, 4.1.1. Honestly, I have no intention to add a new ROM now, and I really just want the features of the new update. So, my question is, if I update the OS on a rooted phone via an OTA update, is there any chance of my phone being bricked or all of my data being wiped? Overall, is it completely safe to update?

General :: HTC One SV Rooted OTA Not Updating

May 2, 2014

I want to install an OTA, but I had rooted it using TWRP and then followed so many procedures in trying to restore to stock that I think my phone's wasted. I have been doing a lot of reading, but I apparently suck since nothing seems to make sense (or that everything seems so disconnected). It appears that what could be one long, detailed post about something is to be found in many different posts, but I understand that since there are so many phones and each one probably needs its own way of being handled.

All right, I installed adb, fastboot, an htc utility toolkit, downloaded 3 different img files (one says recoverytest.img, which is from, another one was put here on xda by one of the members, and that was simply recovery.img, and another one called HTC_ One_ Sv_K2_ Ul_boot_ signed.img <-- this is probably the wrong file since my bootloader screen says k2_Cl).

my phone was rooted. SuperSU was working fine, and one day somehow I lost the root access when SuperSU upgraded. Tried a few methods to upgrade manually but none worked.So after installing all those above, I did a variety of commands like revone, fastboot flash recovery.img, fastboot oem lock, fastboot flash boot recovery.img, all based on what was mentioned one one thread or another on the forum and mostly all of them gave me some kind of an error.

So I'm stuck now. My phone does nothing. When I reboot from bootloader, it says in red "this is for development purposes only, blah, blah". When I download the update and try installing it, the phone simply restarts. When I try to do factory reset from the hboot, the phone simply goes back into fastboot menu. My phone apparently doesn't have an RUU, only a recoverytest.img.

Here's where I am and I want to do what next. I jsut installed android sdk, and installed 4.1.2 package (which is the current version on my phone), and I want to update to 4.2.2, which is the latest update for htc one sv on boostmobile (installed the package for that in sdk also).

(A lot of people were also asking for cid, mid and phone model, and I have no clue how to make sure that the .img file is the same as my phone's).I know I am all over the place, and call me a knucklehead, but I genuinely do not understand a lot of the things that are mentioned on the forums. Every thread mentions a process, and within each process is contained a subprocess which I equally do not know.

While I go from fastboot usb to hboot, the screen flickers for a couple seconds an dmessages like "sd checking: no image or bad image" appear for a couple seconds and then I see the hboot menu. The way I understand how to do this (in layman terms) is as follows:

1. Restore to stock {by first turning S-Off, then lock the bootloader, and then RUU. I cannot get S-off using revone (revone failed, error code 2 or error code -1); the bootloader is "relocked", and I cannot get to do anything with the RUU (iow I don't know what to do with it)}.

2. Restore to factory settings.

3. Download and install the OTA 4.2.2 update.

General :: Rooted S4 Not Switching On

Jun 26, 2013

I recently rooted my s4 (I9500 international) and I installed cwm recovery. I went into recovery mode and selected backup to see what would happen. Then when I tried rebooting it, it just showed the 'Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500' logo and the screen went black. The same thing happens if I press the power button (no vibration). I kept it for charging but no light appears and nothing shows on the screen. I went into recovery mode and did a factory reset/ data wipe and tried rebooting but there was no change. I tried restore, but it says 'MD5 unmatched' or something like that (can't remember).Also, when I try rebooting from recovery mode, it shows an empty battery pic on the screen with a non moving circle in the middle.

My system's information:


Model Number: GT-I9100G
Android Version: 2.3.6

Kernel Version:

I would really REALLY like to do it via a .zip file from within CWM without having to flash my phone with a PC (as I only have Linux).

General :: Prepping Rooted Note 3 For Kit Kat

Feb 7, 2014

I rooted my Verizon device using TWRP.

Should I just wait and sideload KK when it becomes available (assuming that I don't need to upgrade with what's currently available and want to wait until the Verizon/US version gets out)?

Or should I unroot back to stock first and OTA it?

Or can I simply reinstall my stock ROM in recovery and OTA?

I used to have Save Root. It worked like a charm for my Motorola devices. Does this work between updates as well? Do we know yet if there will be a way to save root when upgrading?
