I think I'm going to make a Superboot flashable TPT and a CWM flashable TPT so drivers don't play a role anymore. ;)

Hey All,

Should be getting me Skate trw after my HTC Desire died last week.

I have a question or 2.

1) Having had my PC set up for Desire rooting/flashing etc, providing the Skate is not 2.3.5 can i just go ahead a run the 'install-superboot-windows.bat' to root it?


1a) But if the Skate is 2.3.5 what are my options for rooting?


2) Assuming rooting goes OK, is the 'install-recovery-windows.bat' the next step?


2a) And then i assume i vol down and power to enter recovery and back-up, is this all that is needed to back-up an Orange branded Skate in case i need to return to stock?


Many thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi James,
Welcome to Skate :)

1)Yes
1a)Go for Johnny Hung's package, superboot for 2.3.5 included
2)It depends on what you want. If you want to install a custom ROM by CWM recovery, you don't need to root you OMC beforehand.
2a)You can backup your Orange stock ROM that way. But it is not necessary - To TPT an Orange image.bin is the most convenient way to get everything back to Orange

Heya - Im looking to superboot a 2.3.5 android installation, but it looks like the download link for that version has expired - is anyone able to re-upload it for me?

Much appreciated

Hi.
I have just unlocked my OMC, it is running 2.3.4.

I plan to install superbooot and then remove some of the orange bloatware using a program that currently slips my mind (I installed it last night) it allows you to remove various components from a rooted phone.

In the future if I am not happy with the phone after removing some of the orange crap, I may install a custom rom. If I use superboot to root my phone can I just put any rom on it in the future or will I need to also install the Clockwork mod?

Thanks

n00b with android, still attempted to gain root on my Reliance ZTE V9C. (operator locked). came with stock 2.3.4 with reliance customisations (obviously).

downloaded the superboot package from the first post. came across the driver issue, installed google-usb from android SDK. the script proceeded and my tab rebooted.

since then, it is stuck at the android logo, with red LED on.

on plugging the cable in, device is not recognized, showing up as an UNKNOWN DEVICE in usb (device manager).

have to power off by pulling the battery.

VOL+UP and POWER button combo results in the same display.

VOL+DN and POWER brings up the FTM screen.

no other activity.


can anyone help me? or is the device bricked for good?

Install clockwork recovery then flash CM7 - you get a better android and it is fully rooted.

@aardys - I replied to you in the other thread when you posted this but as long as you can get into CWM do not panic. Yes you can install a custom ROM as you described just do the usual wipes first.

Wait a sec. Am I correct in thinking that the 2.3.5 package uploaded here by J.H works great for rooting but will guaranteed break Wi-Fi (thus result in the need to mess about with the boot.img)? If this is the case, how exactly does one restore the boot.img? I'm getting mixed messages from the thread results.

Many thanks.

Ok, so my wifi is definitely broke after following this guide, prices its either this one or the unlock guide (it has reduced my Mac address to 11.22.33.44.55.66) how do I fix this?

EDIT: Fixed, was an error in the restoration of QCN file during unlock which is now fixed :D.

If you are skilled enough you can take advantage of creating your own superboot from your own original boot.

Here is the topic how: http://android.modac...n-superbootimg/
Just don't use romdump to get your boot.img, it won't probably work. Use CWM instead.


Also check out my last two comments in this topic. They contain some corrections to original guide.

Why do you "have" to update the superuser...? Unless you have it on auto update then that should not apply. As I have not used this for the Skate (I use a custom ROM) I would not know if the latest SU causes issues with the Skate when and if the binaries are updated from the market. It used to cause a problem with people losing root access with the blade during one of the SU updates, when the binaries were updated.

Mine is using version 3.0.7 (41) and looking at the log everything which requires SU access has been granted and remains so when rebooted.
