You can turn the question around, why rooting if you can't update anymore... ;-)

quite a lot of reasons :

apps2sd

full backup with titanium backup

applications that need root access

and of course the feeling that now "MY OWN PHONE" is in my "CONTROL" and not the vendor of my phone :)

Nope, it's an exe file, just run it with usb cable connected to the phone and follow the instructions ....

Dear Paul,

Perhaps you may want to change the commands in the shell script into "adb -d <command>" just to be on the safe side. Because if the particular person is rooting and has an emulator running at the same time, it throws this error:

Legend Root Step 2


Pushing required files to device...


Password:

* daemon not running. starting it now *

* daemon started successfully *

error: more than one device and emulator

error: more than one device and emulator


Pushing update file to device sdcard - this may take a few minutes...


error: more than one device and emulator

error: more than one device and emulator


Now wipe and apply rootedupdate.zip from the recovery image menu.

Successfully rooted!

My problem was that I (as per the instructions) removed the GoldCard, which required a reboot, which would have taken it out of RUU mode, I think. Keeping the GoldCard in, I successfully rooted.

Would it be a good idea to change the instructions to tell people not to remove the GoldCard?

Good day Paul,

I was wondering if it would be possible for you to root the 1.32 rom or atleast show us it its possible to downgrade to the rootable rom version.

Us Legend users in India run on 1.32,. This is my first android device and would love to have root access with ur help ofcourse.

Appreciate all u ve done so far. if here s any resource u d need for this, do let me know nd i ll try me best to find it.

Regards

i've allready have remove the superuser apk and /system/xbin/su as mentioned in another tread...

To Paul:

Is there any way to edit the Root so we can install updates like the 405.5?

Because we can download the update but install fails.
