MMM³ - MoDaCo Mod for MOJO now available

Recommended Posts

We're prepping our review of the MadCatz MOJO review (details / buy), but the tweaks have already started flowing. :)

The MoDaCo Mod for MOJO, which adds root and increased Play Store app availability to the MadCatz MOJO, is now available!

The mod takes the form of a Superboot image (as used on many devices previously), with additional features to resolve the Play Store lack-of-apps issue caused by the lack of a touchscreen feature XML file.

What is this?

Superboot is a boot.img that when booted, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK). No need to flash any partitions, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just boot the boot image using the instructions below and you're done!

What are the pre-requisites?

You need a MOJO (duh) and a USB Male A-A cable to carry out this process. And a computer I suppose (Windows, Mac or Linux).

Any caveats?

You should note that while rooting may affect your ability to receive future OTAs, reverting back to stock is easy enough. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. ;)

Download

APPLY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

  • Superboot MMM³ - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) - MD5: 835de32dd795d2825ade1ed1be422abf
How to use Superboot - Windows, Linux and OSX
  • Download the Superboot zip file above and extract to a directory
  • Put your device in bootloader mode - Unplug the power cable and any USB cables (the dongle can stay in), insert the USB Male A-A cable in the port labelled '2.0', then insert the power cable. 'Key driver not found.. Booting OS' will appear on screen.
  • WINDOWS - install the device drivers from the directory you extracted above if required, then run 'superboot-windows.bat' as Administrator
  • MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x superboot-mac.sh' followed by 'sudo ./superboot-mac.sh'
  • LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x superboot-linux.sh' followed by 'sudo ./superboot-linux.sh'
  • You will see 'Booting downloaded image' and a black screen, then the screen will return to 'Key driver not found.. Booting OS'. At this point, unplug the USB cable and the power cable, wait a few moments, then reconnect the power cable to boot as normal.
For all the missing apps to show up on the Play Store, you may need to clear data on the Play Store in 'Settings -> Applications' and reboot, then run the Play Store again.

Enjoy! :)

Now updated to the 3rd release - MMM³ - which offers even more Play Store compatibility.

The MOJO will now effectively masquerade as a Nexus 10 from a hardware perspective, so everything should really be available. Certainly apps like Facebook now appear properly.

This can be safely used over the top of the previous releases.

Hi Paul,

I downloaded the superboot r3-mojo file from the following link

http://loadbalancing.modaco.com/download.php?file=r3-mojo-superboot-mmm.zip

However, I am getting following error:

 

C:\mojosuperboot>superboot-windows

C:\mojosuperboot>fastboot-windows.exe -i 0x0738 boot boot.superboot.img
downloading 'boot.img'...

FAILED (data transfer failure (Too many links))

Thanks in advance for your / community members help!!

Hi there,

I've just recently bought a Mad Catz MOJO. 

I'm having great difficulty trying to root the device. The links I've tried, don't work.  

Does any one have any ideas please?

Cheers

Hi,

In need of some help please,

Every time i try the download link it just opens another window and displays this screen. 

The link provided in the comments takes me to a screen to enter a revel code. I do this and click on download and I get a page with the following error:

 

Not Found

The requested URL /files/r3-mojo-superboot-mmm.zip was not found on this server.


Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at wright.modaco.net Port 80

 

Thanks in advance.
