Rooting Tattoo/Click

1 post in this topic

Hi all.. I have found a couple of simple steps to root the tattoo, and I wanted to share them with those who might have trouble getting it done.

Edit: I found that first, going back to stock rom, not updating anything when rebooted, and just run the universalandroot app is the simplest way to go (use xp, win7 does not compute on doing this;)

- http://rs584.rapidsh...ed_NoDriver.exe

1: Rooting with UniversalANDroot

Download the APP: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=747598

Install the app trough HTC sync or similar (remember to allow applications from unknown sources on your phone).

Run app, and root your phone.

2: Rooting with ADB


Copy m7, su and tattoo-hack.ko to your android/sdk/platform-tools folder (where adb.exe is located).

Rooting the device:

adb shell mkdir /data/local/bin

adb push m7 /data/local/bin/m7

adb shell

cd /data/local/bin

chmod 755 m7

while `true` ; do /data/local/bin/m7; done

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/system/lib

export PATH=/system/bin


You should now see something like this:

# id

uid=0(root) gid=1000(shell) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log),1011(adb),1015(sdcard_rw),3001(net_bt_admin),3002(net_bt),3003(inet)

You are now king of your phone ;p Making it stick:

adb push tattoo-hack.ko /data/local/bin/tattoo-hack.ko

adb push su /sdcard

adb shell

cd /data/local/bin

while `true` ; do /data/local/bin/m7; done 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/system/lib

export PATH=/system/bin

insmod /data/local/bin/tattoo-hack.ko

mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock5 /data

mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

mv /system/bin/su /system/bin/su.old (get error = no problem, skip to next step)

cat /sdcard/su > /system/bin/su

chmod 6755 /system/bin/su


Now, when phone is rebooted. Re-launch adb shell, and type su.

You should now get a # prompt, and u are rooted ;p

thats it..

next step is to download SuperUser from market + perhaps ROM manager (for custom recovery)

(Booting to recovery: old the Home & the Power buttons until the device boots to the recovery)

Custom rom 1: http://wiki.cyanogen...ll_Update_Guide (skip to Flashing CyanogenMod).

Custom rom 2: http://android.modac...online-kitchen/
