Possible root method without bootloader unlock for ICS (G300)

2 posts in this topic


Bin4ry has made a method which takes advantage of a flaw in adb restore to allow rooting without a format or bootloader unlocking. I've tested this on my Xperia U and my Nexus 7, and both are rooted and working great.


1.) Download attached file.

2.) Extract it using 7zip

3.) Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions!

Please use this version in the QR code here (v13):


There are reported issues with later versions.

If this works, please post here with results and remember to hit the thanks button for Bin4ry, and if you're feeling generous, donate!
