  • MMM³ - MoDaCo Mod for MOJO now available


    PaulOBrien

    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

      • 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

    and followed instructions from YouTube video to root my M.O.J.O.

    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))
    finished. total time: 16.260s

    C:\mojosuperboot>

    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.

    • I've written a couple of reviews on Uhans Max 2. Bought it on GearBest last year and just couldn't but react to the users' earlier discussions. Actually, Makeuseof editors asked me to syndicate my review on their website, but I preferred to write a new one (as a few months passed and I did try a couple of things with it).
    • Hi again everyone, Yesterday afternoon I did another stint of warning sellers on eBay who are selling their hudls (both 1s and 2s) as fully working, unaware that their buyers will want to return them as faulty due to this issue... However, it looks like I've triggered some red flag on eBay and the number of messages I can send per day has been limited (to 6, it seems, after having sent 35 yesterday) so I wondered if someone else could take over for a bit? Someone on this thread did say earlier that they'd been doing the same. I've just had an online chat with eBay and they couldn't see any reason for my outgoing messages being restricted and promised to get the restriction lifted, but if someone else could warn the slew of new listings that would be good. Thanks!
    • I have just come off the phone with tesco about my 2 hudl 2"s that won't connect and have been told its not their problem and they won't do anything about it and it's tough luck go buy a new one... Now both these tablets were working fine before hand and I've had them 2 years from new but sorry to say they don't want to know and say its not there software update so that's it!!!!!! Anyone want a couple of expensive bookends... Dave
    • It will certainly be interesting to see what Tesco IT's reply To BelAstair's message is....it could be quite revealing. My guess is that they've gone for the 'end of useful life' approach not because they can't generate a solution, but because they've been told by higher management that it isn't acceptable to generate one that commits Tesco to any further support resource in future. I feel sure that's the real sticking point....  If I'm right, they might well be open a compromise in providing a solution that permanently removes any future support  commitment. In practice, given that most users won't be capable of the ingenious solutions we've already seen on this forum, this would probably mean their providing an update which removes the requirement to go through Tesco's servers during setup. Provided they issued the necessary instructions for this, and warned everyone with affected HUDLs to run it within a reasonable timeframe, they could then withdraw server support. It would also get them out of a potentially nasty reputational backlash if the broadcast media do start to take an interest. The debacle of the accounting scandal is still relatively fresh in peoples' minds, and they won't want this dredged up again. Let's hope reason prevails...
