Default [Root] One Click Root for Samsung Admire (SCH-R720) :: Windows/Mac/Linux :: 9/12/2011

EDIT 4/23/13: I'm pretty sure this doesn't work any more, look for other root packages in this forum.

Don't bug me about broken links. Direct #1 will be practically infinite in its lifespan - if it disappears, this phone probably has too. I am not responsible for others' domains, including Shabbypenguin's old one, Mr. Rosenberg's, or Mediafire.



@djrbliss, @MikesToolz, and @k0nane present...

One Click Root for SCH-R720

About

Welcome, Admirers! Without the headaches of the package blocking that got in the way on the Samsung Galaxy Indulge, the crew over at the #admire channel have successfully rooted your device.

Actually, @djrbliss (Dan Rosenberg, bliss in #admire) did. Almost all of the credit belongs to him - he discovered the exploit that gives us root, and wrote the Linux/Mac one-click script. Technical info on the exploit can be found here. Enjoy the fruits of his hard work!

How to Install

Your device must be in USB Debugging mode. To turn it on, go to Settings > Applications > Development and check the box.

Linux/Mac: Connect your device to your PC, unpack the archive, and run run.sh. You may need to chmod 755 run.sh.

Windows: Install the Samsung USB drivers (download), unpack the archive, and open run.bat.

Downloads
We do not use file hosts with waiting times or CAPTCHAs!

Windows Download (Direct) | Mirrors :: Direct #2 - Mediafire
Linux/Mac Download (Direct) | Mirrors :: Direct #2 - Direct #3


Credits

All credit for the exploit goes to @djrbliss!

  • Windows one-click originally by me (@k0nane)
  • Port to Admire by @MikesToolz
  • Hosting by @Shabbypenguin, @djrbliss, @k0nane

run.bat does not exist in the file I downloaded.

I still get things on my phone saying I have to be rooted to open the files I was trying to open.

How do I get rid of the bloatware?

Is anyone working on a custom Kernel to OC?

Sorry I am new to the whole smartphone scene. Hats off to the people who worked on this exploit!

Im on a macintosh and the files in the archive are:

adb.linux
adb.osx
admire_root.sh
su
superuser.apk

Which of these do i click to make it work? I dont see a file named run.sh .

Thanks!

EDIT:

I tried running admire_root.sh through the terminal but nothing happened. Phone is in debug mode with usb storage on.

I believe you have the Linux version, but since I know next to nothing about Macintrash.... err... I mean Macintosh, I am not certain.

I DO know that Linux ends a lot of it's commands with a .sh though.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies. I have the phone in USB debug mode and when i run admire_root.sh it tells me it cant find the other files which are in the same folder.

I am sure there is something easy I am missing.

Thanks I've been looking forward to getting rid of Metro PCS bloatware. I ran the root program, my phone rebooted and it said that I now have a rooted phone. However, when I downloaded apps that required a rooted phone (Titanium) they cannot work because they do not have access to the root files. I AM STILL STUCK WITH METRO PCS GARBAGE APPS....Please help... What did I do wrong? How can I correct this problem?

Open terminal and type cd(press spacebar) ...dont press anything else go to next step

now go back to Finder and go to the folder where you extracted those files
ex. ~/Downloads/Admire

grab the "Admire" folder and drag it to your terminal. then press Enter.


once you are in ~/Downloads/Admire or whatever directory you placed it then type:

./admire_root.sh (or whatever the sh file is called)

Dude, works great. You might want to mention that the "superuser.apk" file needs to be installed on the target phone before running the "run.bat" file.

Of course, maybe the rest of you knew that already. I just got this phone, and it's my first android device, so i'm trying to learn quickly here

I got this error as well - but then i Installed SuperUser and everything is working fine. I have root access and can remove bloatware and tether the phone.

Download a root checker from the app store to see if you have root access. Thats what I did and it said I had it. Got Titanium Backup running on the phone right now with no issues.

You need to install superuser, and then install titanium backup.

Hi Guys, I'm a noob so I hope you'll bear with me. I ran the run.bat on y'day and it says the phone was rooted. I installed the superuser.apk today and it also says the phone is rooted. I still cannot delete the bloatware using Astro file manager, do I need to run the .bat file again or is there something else I haven't done correctly? Thanks in advance for all help.

I think I'm having problems with the USB driver. Uninstalling it and I'll be right back once I do. But right now my laptop's card reader tells me to reformat any card I insert into it and it doesn't recognize any of the devices I connect via USB.

It sounds like you are trying to root the phone on a Mac.

I tried rooting via a mac and i had problems. If you have a windows PC, use the windows version.. thats what I did and it rooted the phone no problem.

If my friend refused to let me root the phone on his PC, i was going to attempt to run the windows exploit via play on mac or another win32 emulator.... no idea if that would have worked or not.

I am so happy to have root. Thanks so much BUT I am having a big problem.

I rooted, and then I have tried multiple programs. However they claim I do not have busy box installed. I have attempted to install multiple versions of busybox and all have failed.

I have used root checker and it says it cannot find busybox, yet titanium backup claims I have 1.18.4-tiitanium. Something is wrong. No program that requires busybox will run.

Okay, so I messed with it some more and found that I can use a root file explorer to assure that the /system/bin folder had proper permissions.

I have now installed properly and have no problems.

What does the program indicate? Does it end with the message "enjoy your rooted phone"?
