Default Superuser Update

Has anyone here updated the Superuser app to the latest version on the market? For some phones it appears to be problematic. What about the Ace?

Thumbs up Universal Gingerbread Root & Unroot 2.3.3 -> 2.3.7+

Guys yesterday a made an update of the zip file now integrated Superuser v3.0.7 and su binary v3.0.3.2 and BusyBox v1.19.3

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UNIVERSAL GINGERBREAD ROOT SAMSUNG GALAXY GT-S5570, GT-S5570B, GT-S5570I, GT-S5570L, GT-S5660, GT-S5660M, GT-S5660L, GT-S5660V, SHW-M290K (Korean GIO), GT-S5670, GT-S5670B, GT-S5670L, GT-S5830, GT-S5830B, GT-S5830C ,GT-S5830D, GT-S5830i, GT-S5830L, GT-S5830M, GT-B7510, GT-B7510B, GT-B7510L, GT-B7800, GT-B5510, GT-B5510B, GT-B5510L, GT-B5512, GT-B5512B, GT-S6102, GT-S5360, GT-S5360L, GT-S5360T, GT-S5363, GT-S5369, GT-S5690, GT-S5690L, GT-I8150, GT-I8150B, GT-I5510, GT-I5510B, GT-I5510L, GT-I5510M, GT-I5510T.

This is only for the people that they are using Gingerbread and can't root their phone with SuperOneClick. You can root your phone with universal_gb_root_v17.zip file for your phone model.

Question: How do I Root Gingerbread on my phone?

Answer:

- First enable Unknown sources on your phone (Settings -> Applications -> Unknown sources)

- Download the universal_gb_root_v17.zip file and put in your SD card.

* How do I transfer universal_gb_root_v17.zip on my SD card?

(You can tranfer the universal_gb_root_v17.zip to your phone via Wifi, Bluetooth, SD micro Adapter or USB cable. To transfer it via USB cable you need first to download KIES from the offical Samsung Web Site and after installing restart your PC so the USB drivers can be recognized properly.Enable USB debugging on your phone, Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging. Plug in the USB cable and enable the connection on you mobile phone like the picture in the bottom. After couple of seconds your SD card will be showed on your PC like Removable disk. Copy universal_gb_root_v17.zip to your SD card.)



- After transferring your file on your phone disable the USB by pressing "Disconnect storage from PC" after that remove the USB cable and turn off your phone "Power off".

[Entering recovery mode on GT-S5830]

- Make shure you start the phone like this : Long press and hold the (Power Button) + (Home Button)



[Entering recovery mode on GT-S5830i]

- Make shure you start the phone like this : Long press and hold the (Volume up Button) + (Home Button) + (Power button)



- After couple of seconds you will see your phone booting in recovery mode

- Move in the menu with the Volume - Volume + to scroll up and down and choose "apply update from sdcard" with the Home button and choose the universal_gb_root_v17.zip and press once again the Home button to apply it.



- You will see a message "Install form sdcard complete".

- Then press on the "reboot system now" and you are done.

(by doing this you will need to backup first all contacts, APN, applications e.t.c. becouse your phone will be in primary stage as you bought it from the mobile shop)

You can download the UNROOT from here: Universal_GB_UNROOT.zip

You have been warned in your previous post. Now you have damaged your boot loader. Try to update your phone via odin with stock ROM if you can get in download mode. But first you need to enter recovery mode to wipe cache patition and wipe data/factory reset and after that put your phone in download mode and flash via odin. You have bricked your phone using the unroot method with already installed CWM that is depended from root. If you can't get into recovery or download mode then take it to the service you might get lucky to replace your phone if is under warranty. If not then find the nearest Private Mobile Service using RIFF JTAG Box or Medusa Box repair.
