Paste root234.zip below in SD CARD

Go to recovery mode T+Power (KEYBOARD T)
Navigate via Volume Keys
Select "update from sdcard" with the CAPS lock key
Navigate to root234.zip
Select "root234.zip"
reboot system
You have a rooted device

No need of custom kernel, SOC or Z4root .AND z4root supports only devices till android 2.2 .Even Android 2.2.2 is not supported since google patched the exploit .

karandpr,

Your method works perfectly - until I turn off my mobile. Every time I turn it on, it needs to be rooted again.

Is this the expected behaviour? Is there any workaround for this problem?


Thanx.

Thanx.
This is definitely not expected behavior .I really have no idea .It's actually a long time since I actually have a stock ROM in my phone .I will try to find the problem .No guarantee though

Not really .CWM uses another binary . PLUS SAMSUNG PHONES ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY ROM MANAGER .Usually . . You need Odin to Flash CWM . Difffernt phones us e different CWM .we have 5.0.2.6 for our phones vis odin only

Lucky Guy .Because if you install ROM manager and try to install CWM via ROM Manager ,you will brick the phone beyond repair .

in the options on titanium backup open "batch" you can move ANY app to sdcard with ti. there are some apps that wont function from the sd card though.
if your looking for a lagfix try "voodoo controls" from the market. and awesome sauce 10.6

For some reason this is also not working for me either, I keep getting the "E : signature verification failed" I have tried all three .zip's that you have posted,. prehaps I am missing something? Thanks in advance for the help

i'm having issues w/ the root process too:
my initial problem is i cannot access recovery via T+Power (every time i hold the T on the keyboard and hit power, even if i hold the T, it boots normally)

i can only access the hboot via holding on the "down volume"+Power

when the screen pulls up it gives me the options:

fastboot
recovery
factory reset
simlock
image crc

when i select recovery, it doesn't give me an option to select the image to use. goes to a black screen w/ an android phone in the middle w/ a red triangle with an exclamation mark in it.

please help.

**update**

ok i found the additional steps/solution from here:

http://www.iphonecentral.us/iphone-news/how-to-manually-update-your-g2-including-a-fix-for-google-goggles-remover.html

once i boot into recovery and it shows the phone i then need to hold on the "up volume" button and tap power, it then displays the option "apply update from sdcard".

once i did that, i tried all three packages and keep getting:
"E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted."

you should be able to find root and rom info specific to the g2 if you look. check sdx-developers, xda-developers, and rootzwiki as well as android forums.

Thumbs up

The "Root.zip" file fixed the whole problem for me.

Had a rooted, froyo 2.2 version of 551 before this.
Upgraded it to gingerbread 2.3.6 and failed on many attempts to root it with other programs.

Found this thread, downloaded the file, and was FINALLY able to root the device.

THANKS A GAZILLIONNN!!

Default question

i have a optimus phone that i had recently rooted with gingerbreak. no issues, everything went fine and i had superuser, droid sail and other rooted apps. i had a 2gb sd card. i just reached my maximum capacity the other day and i got a 4gb sd card. I transfered all files to my new sd card. I still have root access, and can use my rooted apps, but i can no longer move any app to sd card unless the develpoer okays it(basically exactly like it was be4 root). im not sure why this is happening. is it ok to try to run root again since it is already rooted or is something else i have to do???
