Root CloudMobile

83 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

USE THIS METHOD CAREFULLY......

This is a method to get root permission on ours CloudMobile.

YOU NEED ADB AND FASTBOOT WORKING ON YOUR PC

Made an empty folder named ROOT_S500

First of all download this boot https://docs.google....T2JUeDJYZ1VVUW8

this https://docs.google....a1NsX1dhRERyZm8

and this https://docs.google....VDNfNDZjc1V1VTg

SAVE THOSE FILES INTO ROOT_S500 FOLDER

Connect your phone on PC, open terminal, go into ROOT_S500 folder and type:

adb reboot bootloader

phone will reboot in botloader mode

then type

fastboot -i 0x0502 boot boot_s500_gcc_4.6.img

Now you are running an unsecure boot

Wait your phone power on...

Then always into terminal type:

adb remount

adb push Superuser.apk system/app/

adb push su system/xbin

adb shell

chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su

exit

DONE

Enjoy ;)

How to enable OTA UPDATE

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot -i 0x0502 boot boot_s500_gcc_4.6.img

Open Superuser application and check "temp unroot" into info menu.

Now you can check for update into setting - info - update system

for this part:

Connect your phone on PC, open terminal, go into ROOT_S500 folder and type:

adb reboot bootloader

phone will reboot in botloader mode

the terminal is a regular CMD window, right? does that see in what folder you are? and do you need to create the ROOT_S500 folder on the phone or on the PC?

sorry for the amount of questions, I just want to get my phone rooted:)

Does this method reset the phone?

Yes terminal is CMD

You need to go into the same folder where you have boot, superuser.apk and su, so for better explain I say you download on pc folder ROOT_S500 all 3 files and then open CMD (terminal on linux) into ROOT_S500 folder

You could put 3 file into blablabla directory, but I choose ROOT_S500 just to explain better as I can ;)

Dont forgot to activate Debug USB on your phone

How is it possible to brick the phone? (At what step could this happen? And is there a chance even if you do every step correct?) Another question before i start; adb.exe is not in my running progresses and neither is fastboot.exe. do they have to be there? Is in cmd the command "adb ?" And "fastboot ?" The way to check whether they are installed correctly?

it took me a night to figure out how to get rid of the "device not found" error in the terminal, but I finally found a way:)...

The only thing I haven't been able to do is chmod the /system/xbin/su file, because my CMD doesn't know that command and in rootexplorer it says that the phone can't change the permissions:'(

for the OTA update, do I really need to fastboot again? or is just checking temp unroot sufficient as well?

really a big thanks to you!

EDIT: found the problem on the permissions. You forgot to mention that you need to type "adb shell" before you type the chmod command;)

Thank for the tip.. I forgot it.. sure you must to reboot with unsecure boot also to update su binary

I have made everything into a batch file:


@ECHO off

ECHO Warning! This progress will boot an unsecure image

pause

cd C:\ROOT_S500

adb reboot bootloader

ECHO Continue when bootloader is booted.

pause

fastboot -i 0x0502 boot boot_s500_gcc_4.6.img

ECHO Continue when ready with rootstuff.

pause

adb reboot

saved it as ROOT_ACCESS_S500.bat on my desktop so whenever I need some R/W permissions on my system partition, I can open this batch file and don't need to type anything, might be a nice way for everyone using root on S500:) EDIT: I thought I would make the effort to create a batch file for rooting the S500:) The files found in the first post MUST BE in C:\ROOT_S500, or you have to change the 6th line of this batch file. Save this to your desktop as ROOT_S500.bat Here you go:

@ECHO off

ECHO This progress will root your device. Please make sure ONLY the S500 is listed here:

adb devices

ECHO If not, please abort. If you continue, your S500 will reboot in bootloader mode.

pause

cd C:\ROOT_S500

adb reboot bootloader

ECHO if your phone is in bootloader, please continue, your phone will then running in an unsecure boot.

pause

fastboot -i 0x0502 boot boot_s500_gcc_4.6.img

ECHO please wait until your phone is completely booted and recognized on your computer before continuing.

pause

adb remount

adb push Superuser.apk system/app/

adb push su system/xbin

adb shell

chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su

exit

ECHO your phone should now be rooted! If you want the OTA updates to work, please check out the thread on MoDaCo to figure out how to do so.

ECHO Enjoy and a lot of credits to davidevinavil on the MoDaCo forum

haven't had the time to test it, but it should work fine, if ADB and fastboot are installed correctly

Bought you a beer davidevinavil, thanks for showing us how to root :-)

Just a question for the OTA update: i don't seem to have that option "temp unroot". Do I need superuser premium or something ?

What do you mean with the info menu ?

Would like to receive updates when Jelly Bean arrives !

EDIT: found it, updating SuperUser via Play Store did the trick.
