Default [ROOT] 2.3.6 Update

Okay folks this should simplify things a lil with rooting this huge huge update.... lol IMO if you're on a nice ROM stick to it, not much changed in 2.3.4, 2.3.5, or 2.3.6, mainly stuff you dont see or feel, etc. Sammy or metro might have tossed some eye candy in to o0o0o n aww you so you dont notice what they broke or took away.

This installs the current su binary and the Superuser.apk mrpnut had uploaded and proven to work by kidallstar & crew.

Now this is real simple, have CWM installed, flash the the linked zip and reboot.

Instructions
  1. Download zip
  2. Copy zip to your sdcard
  3. Boot to CWMR
  4. Install zip from sdcard
  5. Select zip from sdcard
  6. Confirm
  7. Reboot

koush - for his kickass recovery!!!!

No comment on the other one posted

But seriously, I just thought it would be simpler with the zip installing both files verses install app, flash a old binary, boot, update old binary. I also changed up and used Supersu by Chainfire, which allows you to use his supersu app or the Superuser most of you know. If you would like to read more about Chainfire's supersu click here.

If they are any issues please let me know, so I can fix or correct them.

for the 2.3.6 update, its not the update itself. and stick to whats been proven until proven otherwise

So as kid n Diego I think it was posted to use [Odin] Clockworkmod Recovery - Not compatible with Rom Manager yet

And with that link lets all be sure to thank sue for his work too.

should the superuser app be visible in the app drawer after the install through cwm? because i don't see it, and i'm not rooted after following the steps in the op. it looks like the zip file installs in cwm without problems, but that's as far as my progress goes.

i even tried the other members method out of desperation . . . still no dice.

any suggestions?

Guys, I've stickied this thread for you thanks to a kind heads-up from ShabbyPenguin (thank you, sir! ) and I included a link to it in the all-things-root guide.

Cheers all!

I had a problem similar to that. The root works as long as I don't use titanium. I tried to use it and it told me my phone wasn't rooted and also unrooted my root

I've never liked Tibu personally.

But the issue might be with the default busybox, alot of the default ones are limited, if included at all.

Ah I see. Well I was able to delete stuff with root explorer so it's not that big a deal but I have some apps I backed up and need to be able to restore them

Once PG updated the zip (last night) I got it rooted. Titanium backup works too. Things stopped working once I tried to update superuser via the play store.
Also, the phone got unuseable (with never ending FC's) after uninstalling mymetro through TiBu.

Actually after talking with req, the Admire has Samsungs verison of busybox called toolbox by default, lol.

Those having issues might try installing Busybox from the Store and see how it works.

you have to pull the battery once you uninstall mymetro and after you boot back up you should be fine with no more FC's.

Yeah, It was acting up, so I installed CWM 5.0.2.8, restored a Nandroid, and then flashed the Update again. Went through the steps, and it worked, I can't seem to update Busybox, and the default is 18.4. But as long as its working, I'm cool. Later on tonight I'll see if I De-Odex it.

Playful,

I stumbled over here from another forum. I have 2.3.6. I followed the instructions from the And. Invasion forum (which brought me here). I did the steps for Odin which worked and now I'm in the Android System recovery <3e> screen. There is a menu in blue that lists the following choices:

*reboot system now
*apply sdcard:update.zip
*wipe data/factory reset
*wipe cache partition
*test redbend fota[FS]

I can see the .zip file in my sd download folder but when I select "apply sdcard:update.zip" from the menu above, the screen reads:

-- Install from sdcard...
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (No such file or directory)
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted

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

I know I'm close. I've banging my head against this thing since Sunday trying to root it. I have Superuser installed, Busybox, Titanium, and Root Checker and I'm coming up with nothing.

What I'm I doing wrong? It seems like I should be able to point this installation program to the .zip but I don't know how.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
