Permanent root for 2.2 Blades!

Recommended Posts

Hi, tried the file and it worked very well. Please excuse me for my real idiotic doubts.

On the settings, I can now see an icon named superuser.

Now that I have permenant root the phone, what all do I do with it?

I use a dell XCD35, presently running 2.2 with 512 Mb ram. I have read about 2.3 ginger bread, but dont really see the necessity for me to upgrade it. Also, read about cyanogenmod.. but honestly couldnt understand much nor could come to the conclusion if I must actually change from 2.2 to that ?

At this point in time, I have only issue with this phone; which is the fact that I cant connect my phone to my vista laptop as it is creating only an Ad Hoc wi fi..

and my xcd35 wont detect Ad Hoc wi fi. Can some one on this forum advice me some easy solutions?

I am such a dumbo with computers that I can hardly edit system files and stuff like that.

Hence can I reqeust anyone posting a solution should try to explain all the steps involved, so that I can comprehend it, ( the first post of this thread was so simple to read and understand that even I could permenant root it.)

Thanks a lot for the rooting program. It was so easy. Thanks again..

hi all, I ve recently got Dell XCD35 V 2.2. Tried various softwares starting from Universal androot to different versions of z4root. This app when I tap to root that wheel keeps on spinning. I waited for almost 30 min. it didnot work. I restarted the phone and tried again. Also reinstalled the program but nothing seems to be working. Please help me out.

"wait for it to reboot": the reboot never happens.

i have a shiny new gen2 blade on 2.3.5 (It says that ... but it looks like and probably is 2.2)

No success with rageagainstthecage either. It has trouble with permissions.

Help! I can't even root the thing!

Thanks

MORE INFO:

I have a very annoying gen 2 blade:

no way of getting into recovery (clockwork or zte) - used to be able to get into zte recovery (which had no useful options!) but can't now.

power and vol(-) - green android never leaves screen

power and vol(+) - normal boot

Recovery Manager - won't run at all

fastboot flash recovery etc - looks ok but after reboot won't reboot into recovery

can't root

z4root - stops without doing anything then freezes on second attempt.

universalandroot - fails

NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NOW - i'd love some ideas please ...

Instructions

  • Install the apk (put on sd-card and use "Filer")
  • Enable "USB debugging"

Thank you very much. As a noob i 1st thought: what is Filer/where can i find it/what do i need it for? But i see it is in the std applications list on the phone :-).

And to Enable "UBS Debugging" i do

"Turn on "USB Debugging" on your device. On the device, go to Settings > Applications > Development and enable USB debugging (on an Android 4.0 device, the setting is located in Settings > Developer options)."

this version keeps a copy of the original su and busybox binaries and restores them if you choose to unroot, leaving no visible traces on /system (unless you've modified /system yourself while being rooted)

Thanks for the guide,

Where are these files stored? What are they named?

I want to back them up to my PC.

I downloaded the zip file and after I extracted it, there were no apk file just two java files?!?

Here's a modified version of z4root where I made some changes to make permanent root work on Blades.

Only tested on official Telia Sonera 2.2 but should work on all 2.2 (and 2.1 Blades).

Included in the zip is the modified z4root app + the only source file I changed.

Original z4root source that was used is the one found here: http://code.google.com/p/z4root/

Instructions

  • Install the apk (put on sd-card and use "Filer")
  • Enable "USB debugging"
  • Start app and tell it to do a permanent root.
  • Wait for it to reboot your phone.
  • Have fun!

EDIT 2011-04-16: ver2 attached. This version keeps a copy of the original su and busybox binaries and restores them if you choose to unroot, leaving no visible traces on /system (unless you've modified /system yourself while being rooted)

Is panda anti virus now available on Android? That aside rooting is by exploit which is why panda flags as malicious

Hi...

For my SAPO A5 / ZTE blade from TMN (gen2) only worked with z4root.1.3.0.apk

You need "terminal emulator" application to write "su" command?!

also "root explorer" application is recomended to make the changes on this SO.

bye

I have EXACTLY same problem as you, i got ZTE Blade 2.3.5 since 2 weeks and i all trick to root ETE Blade seems working only for 2.1 or 2.2).

i need to root the phone to make LBE work.

Thank you for any advice, i tried many kind of tricks posted in different sections, but i guess only someone who already did a rpogram for older version can understand what is wrong..

The file it warns about is this one: http://code.google.com/p/z4root/source/bro...eagainstthecage

It's the exploit used to get root access so that the su binary and Superuser.apk can be installed.

If you google "rageagainstthecage" you'll find a bunch of guides on how to use it to root Android phones using adb.

Actually it does warn you for a good reason. If you were downloading an ordinary app that contained this binary it would most likely be a trojan app. However in this case the goal is to hack the phone.

Thank you, kallt _kaffe. Finally i rooted my v9 2.2 again.
