I am using Ubuntu 11.04. Not successful! I have used sudo -s to login as root, as shown below. My OMC is 2.3.4, Build number: OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05.

Anyone help, please.

root@twix:~/Downloads/r2-OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05-skate-superboot# ./install-superboot-linux.sh
error: device not found
< waiting for device >







i got that (on the blade) when i did it a couple of times although i'm not sure why.

did you try running it as root, using either "su -" or "sudo -s", then running the adb and fastboot commands.

does adb devices list anything like this (obviously for skate not blade):

./adb-linux devices
List of devices attached 
Blade-CM7	device

Please make sure to get the Superboot that's going with your Android version!

Don't waste your time messing around with drivers for Windows xxx. If it doesn't work for you under Windows, just do as described here.
None of the previously posted procedures worked for me but this way it worked flawlessly (Stock Staraddict)

Step-by-step HowTo install Superboot for everyone (with LINUX)

No need to install any driver for whatever. No need to install LINUX.
This should work with any LINUX
(preinstall or boot from CD or USB pen-drive).

- Activate USB-Debugging on your phone (as described in a previous post)
- Turn off (remove the battery once turned off)
and unplug your phone
- Start the LINUX distribution of your choice
- Download Superboot from post #1
- Unpack the downloaded file (right-click and select unpack here) and remember the path where you did unpack it to
- Open a terminal (command box)
- Enter
sudo su to become root (1)
- Enter your password (2)
- Change to the directory where you unpacked Superboot to (
cd ~/Downloads/r2-OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05-skate-superboot/ in my case)
- Enter the following command to start the Superboot-script: ./install-superboot-linux.sh (3)
- Wait until the daemon has started. You should see the message: < waiting for device >
- Plug your phone onto an USB-port of your computer whilst
simultaneously pressing [Vol-] + [Home] (4)
- If your phone does not power on by itself, insert the battery and switch your phone on by pressing simultaneously [Vol-] + [Home] + [Power] (4)
- As soon as you feel your phone vibrating, release the Power-button if you pressed it
- Keep [Vol-] and [Home] pressed until you see the green Android
- As soon as you release the two buttons, you should see the following message on the screen:
sending 'boot'
- A few seconds later, the following message should appear on your screen: rebooting...
- Your phone should restart
- After your phone has restarted, you should find the App Superuser on your phone

You're done!

1 Some distributions don't like the sudo command. If sudo su doesn't work for you, just enter su (without sudo )
2 If you had to enter su (without sudo), you will need to enter the root password here
3 This command will not work without the dot ( . ) preceding the slash
4 For Staraddict only: Since the buttons Home and Menu are inverted on the Staraddict, you must press the Menu-button instead of the Home-button

(Did i ever mention that I love LINUX?)

Any comments and/or suggestions are welcome.

I see the green android as soon as I plug the USB. Followed your instruction, the phone went into "Safe mode". Nothing was shown on the PC screen, it still says < waiting for device >.

Don't waste your time messing around with drivers for Windows xxx. If it doesn't work for you under Windows, just do as described here.

No need to install any driver for whatever. This should work with any pre-installed or live LINUX.

- Keep [Vol-] and [Home] pressed until you see the green Android
- As soon as you release the two buttons, you should see the following message on the screen: sending 'boot'
- Wait for approx. half a minute, the following message should appear on your screen: rebooting...
- Your phone should restart
- After your phone has restarted, you should find the App Superuser on your phone

You should follow the instructions in the described order. If you see the green Android as soon as you plug the USB, you did not. Because at that moment, the phone should be switched off.

Please retry and really follow it step by step.

Hi Chris,
I really followed step by step. As soon as the phone is connected to USB from a PC, the phone shows the green Android. The Android man flashes, between on and off.

Hi Chris,

Funny thing, I followed the steps too and the green Android guy showed up as soon as the USB was plugged in (yes, the phone was off, yes, the battery was not even in the phone).

What worked for me was to switch the phone off, take the battery out, hold both [Vol-] and [Home/Menu] buttons as described, and then, while still holding them down, plug the USB cable. Connecting the phone was like pressing the power button in my case I guess (?). The instructions appeared on the Linux terminal and the phone was rooted (battery still out at this point). It didn't reboot though and I had to switch it off (I think by unplugging the USB) and on again but now with the battery inside (obviously). Then the phone started normally and I had the root app installed.

Hope that helps and thanks to all who helped me de-Orange my Blade and Skate.
