Hi!

Im new to this forum and this phone. Just installed 4.000.13.EMEA_GEN1 with android 2.3.6!

Already the memory is full, so I guess I'll have to root the phone. I've found (offcourse) the recovery flash tutorial. my question is: Will this work with my firmware version?

Or in general: How do i root this version?

Or I assume you could flash Superuser-3.0.6-efgh-signed.zip http://www.mediafire...1jjohg52aai32sl

No much difference though as you can flash 2.3.6 and update it anyway.

Yea, the instructions are for recovery 2.2 but the thread that contained it has been updated to 3.0 which seems different in some ways, one of which is the buttons you need to press. smile.gif

If you have 2.2 you can still use it with 2.3.6, or at least I did anyway and it seems fine, as is Superuser-3.0.6-efgh-signed.zip, I used that too.

Hi there!

Sorry, but I'm a total newbie to Android....

Flashing this recovery to this device will change the Firmare (into the one of the recovery), does it? Or will the original Acer 1.0000.13 remain untouched, except unlocked/rooted. How does it work at all, is just SU installed and the recovery installs the Stock-FW back after it?

After this process: What exactly changed to the Acer-FW? The kernel and the loader or is it just the same and the recovery just installs the superuser. AFAIK, the recovery is just an image, created after each booting. So how does the Rec manage to leave the firmare as it was before?

My goal is to keep the original Acer as far as possible, just want to deinstall Spinlets, SocialJogger and stuff and install Root-Apps.

Thanks for helping me out.....

Clarky

Hi

I've upgraded my phone to 2.3.6 using Acer official firmware. I have then flashed with Recovery 3.0 and used this to install Superuser 3.06.

I have confirmed with 'Root Check' that the phone is rooted and this confirms I have root access, however I cannot find any options to uninstall social jogger etc.

Please advise what I'm doing wrong.

Used Super Navigator but didn't do everything then tried Titanium - that did the job.

I've now installed Gingerounay ;-)

I've followed the steps above to root and it seems to have worked.. however I still cant adb remount, or use su when i do adb shell.. both give me permission denied *although I appear to have root for apps in android.. just not in ADB..

Is there something else I need to do to enable it there?

I try to root my Acer but when I reboot in recovery mode, the phone freezes on start, while it displays the small android logo and the exclamation mark. What am I doing wrong?

I did install that, or at least I think I did, since I don't see any changes. I don't really understand what the Recovery is doing, but I followed all the steps, until the black screen with the 3 colors (at that time I have 4 lines written and the 3 colors 'flag'), ENTER again and reboot the phone. The su-2..6.3.... zip file was (and is) already on the sd card. After reboot I'm closing the phone again so I can reboot it in recovery mode and everytime I try this combo buttons the phone gets stuck with the exclamation mark and nothing more.

Is it possible that the latest OS version doesn't allow this?

Which key combination do you use? AmonRA uses Volume UP + Volume Down + Focus + Power and CWM uses Volume UP + Focus + Power. Both need to release and press focus on vibrate ;)

Ahaaaa... now I got it.. I was using the CWM while pressing the AmonRa's combination. It didn't had the "flash zip from sd card" option, it said "update" so I chose that. I think I did it right because now I can use link2sd to move applications to SD card (that was my main purpose), apps that I couldn't move before... most of them basically.

Thanks for your help ;)

Please help
