Can anyone else get root using Pauls method? I updated to b926 using the "dload\update.app" method from b886 (Vodafone IRL)

I cannot seem to get the device recognised under linux when I power on with vol-.

"install-superrecovery-linux.sh" just sits @ "< waiting for device >"

"adb-linux devices" & "fastboot-linux devices" give no results.

When I power on normally the device is recognised by adb


Update: I needed to run this script as root on my linux machine :)


Update 2: Still didn't work for me, it couldn't write the recovery....
sending 'recovery' (5074 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)

@theshire
It seems to me that you have a connection problem between ur phone and your computer.

Either u dont have the adb drivers properly setup or u don't have your phone in debug mode or something in these lines.
If the install-super...... blablabla is sitting on <waiting for devices> then it means it can't connect to your phone, which means its not properly mounted.

Check this link and see if it helps: http://www.addictive...all-it-android/

Kind regards.

"fastboot-linux" wasn't working without root privileges but now my issue is that writing the recovery image fails as it looks like it has been disabled on the device side somehow

Is there a method to unlock the bootloader using a linux machine?

I can only find the windows exe

The reason you canot root with pauls method is because you are on B926 ICS, you need to use the bootloaderunlock.exe to root and unlock bootloader.

Will need a Windows machine so then. A linux method would be nice.

See above: http://www.modaco.co...00#entry1983784 works well.
The only thing you need before following the steps in the link is a working adb binary. I attached mine Attached File  adb.tar.gz   74.16KB   12 downloads, hopefully this works on your machine since im on gentoo.
Then download the file: https://dl.dropbox.c...ot-g300-ics.zip
unzip it:
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
unzip PATH_TO/unzip must-have-files-for-root-g300-ics.zip
If you dont have your one adb executable, put that in the same folder:
tar xvfz adb.tar.gz
then continue, as in the above post:
./adb push mempodroid /data/local/tmp
./adb push su /data/local/tmp
./adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp
./adb shell
("./" means to use the local adb, if you have one in your system, you can strip the "./")
Depending on your system, you probably have to run the commands as a superuser, so if it doesnt work, try to prefix each command with a "sudo".

The following commands should run "as is" and dont need "./" or "sudo" since they are issued on the fone:
cd /data/local/tmp
chmod 777 ./mempodroid
./mempodroid 0xd524 0xab8f sh
mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /system
cat /data/local/tmp/su > /system/xbin/su
chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
cat /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk >/system/app/Superuser.apk
chown 0644 /system/app/Superuser.apk
exit
exit

et voila, youre rooted :)
