Default Oneclick root for Ally 2.2.1 Froyo is avaiable

I'm not the first to post this on here but many people still don't know about it. It's not going to give you fastboot back but it will give you root without having to do the guide at http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/263285-guide-froyo-2-2-1-root-users.html

SuperOneClick V1.9.1 is located on XDA at [APP]SuperOneClick v1.6.3 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers
You need to read and follow the instructions on that page, and if it helps consider donating to the author of SuperOneClick.

Again at least three others have posted info about this program here and the thread easy way to root froyo that wroked for me touches on it but doesn't link to where to get it.
A thread tooting it as a one click (well almost one
click)root method for Ally with OTA or LGMU froyo doesn't currently exist on the Ally forum so here you go.
**update** SOC now supports the Gingerbreak exploit to root.

Well there ya go people
Here it is.

To say that this method is one click I believe is a little misleading.... however it is still ridiculously easy.

Dautley... you just couldnt hold it in any longer could ya. LOL

Lets just say I did make some inquires before posting this and after being told it should be no problem, I felt people looking for answers deserved to know about it. I personally used Tridents guide, learned from it, and donated to his cause but it's obvious by looking through the thread that it's just not for everyone.

No you won't have fastboot, but just wondering if a third party app such as ROM Manager would give you the ability to use 2.2.1 third party ROMS? I don't know that it would as I'm not much into the custom ROM thing but thought it might be worth checking out.

Good points dots and Goonie21, everyone needs to be aware of the pros and cons of each method.

***Edit***: If you originally had fastboot SuperOneClick will not wipe it but if your phone shipped with a version newer than VS740ZV06 or you updated with lgmu and want fastboot back you will need to use [GUIDE] FroYo 2.2.1 for Root Users!

***Edit***: If you do root with SuperOneClick and find you want to install a custom ROM and don't have fastboot you can always go back and do [GUIDE] FroYo 2.2.1 for Root Users!

Dots.... Jrock and I have made a way to put Fastboot back on After using the Super One Click Method. We want to do this with Our Other testers to verify... However Its almost a done deal.

We Will be doing a write up soon.

**EDIT** May have jumped the gun on this one.
We are still testing. Thank you for your patients.

I used SuperOneClick and installed Clockwork and it all worked great.

I am now using Savoxis' ROM. You can definitely get customs ROMs. My only problem is after I got his I can't boot in to recovery.

So let me get this straight, i can now follow tridents guide, an get the each update until i get froyo, an then i can just do the oneclick root, to root the phone, an hopefully, swc2001 will get the fastboot installer working soon.

If you do Tridents guide to the end you will already have fastboot as well as root. SuperOneClick 1.6.3 is an entirely different method to root a unrooted phone that has the stock ROM on it from either OTA or LGMU. I think swc2001 is working on a way to *get* fastboot onto a rooted phone that doesn't have it for whatever reason, ie used LGMU to get the froyo update. Hope this clears things up a little bit.

Dautley you cant flash fastboot onto a rooted phone that does not have fastboot. you need the bootloader image that contains fastboot. NOT THE BOOT.IMG and currently its not possible to do that because we cant even get a working bootloader image. plus could easily perm-brick your device/

You do realize he is not the only person who worked on that thread right? And do realize that if I wouldn't have found the LGMU hole that ALLOWED going DOWN a version the way to downgrade to V6 may not even be available. and he did copy and paste from that thread about the steps on downgrading.

You're giving him all the credit. Like he single-handedly designed that guide. And found the needed method on his own. Like it was all him.

Afteraffekt and I helped him with that guide...

Just saying...

Okay I have no idea how swc2001 intends to get fastboot on the phone so changed the word from "flash" to "get". Still, way to go swc2001!

I realize the guide contains the work of many people, as it acknowledges you and others by saying "Special thanks to death2all110 and getitnowmarketing for all they do! Also thanks to Afteraffekt for proof reading and updating the guide!"
I called it "Tridents guide" simply because it was he that posted the guide linked to in my post. If you feel yourself wronged by this please accept my apology.
I would like to personally thank you and all of the developers who take the time to make the Ally community a great place to be.

I too used the SOC method. I'm rocking Velocity 1.0 now. Thanks Death, dots, and everyone else for helping me out in the irc.

I know this is kinda random, but does SuperOneClick allow you to boot into Recovery? Because each time I try I get an android guy with an "!" mark for half a second and then it boots normally. Is this normal?

Because the file "install-recovery.sh" (without quotes) is restoring stock recovery. Using the long guide removes it. This way does not. Still needs to be removed for recovery to stick.

It is located in /system/etc

So that's why you had to help me do that yesterday. I wondered why it was messed up like that. Thanks again BTW.

Yes, I used the SOC method to root from STOCK 2.2.1 (Never previously rooted, OTA update)
I installed Velocity 1.0 with no problems. I did have problems getting recovery mode to stick (as stated above) and dots was able to walk me through the fix in the irc channel.

Well to put it simply fastboot = root access. If you do this and don't have fastboot and no root exploits are found like psnueter that SOC is using for in the future (future upgrades) you will be left without a way to root. Fastboot will guarantee you root access if all else fails as well as a way to recover a damaged and non-booting device.

ok, thanks getitnowmarketing!! I guess I will have to try to flash back and root the long route once more. Have tried numerous times and seem to always hit a road block. I am dieing to run the froyo and install V.01. I have been following these threads waiting for someone to explain how this was working for some people. So if I am right fastboot is more important than jumping the gun and getting froyo and v.01 running the easier way. This is what i was afraid of and am glad I have waited.

I'm also having a problem getting recovery to stick. How did you do it? I can't get the long method to work. On my vista machine the drivers won't load, and on my win 7 netbook the phone keeps disconnecting. I bricked one phone trying to do it, and I don't think verizon will believe my "gosh I don't know what happened" story again. I really want to get Velocity 1.0 bad!

You have to delete a file called install-recovery.sh or somthing similar in system/etc folder. You can do that with adb or root explorer.

Ok guys that are using SOC or considering using this read:

SOC uses a new exploit called psneuter not rageagainstthecage (even though is still named rage).

// psneuter.c, written by scotty2.


// neuter the android property service.


// ashmem allows us to restrict permissions for a page further, but not relax them.
// adb relies on the ability to read ro.secure to know whether to drop its privileges or not;
// if it can't read the ro.secure property (because perhaps it couldn't map the ashmem page...
// then it will come up as root under the assumption that ro.secure is off.
// this will have the unfortunate side effect of rendering any of the bionic userspace that relies on the property
// service and things like dns broken.
// thus, we will want to use this, see if we can fix the misc partition, and downgrade the firmware as a whole to something more root friendly.

Read the above from the source code to it. For those of you who don't know what bionc is its the android libc.so or the C library that virtually every lib.so on the phone is linked with. The intention of this exploit was to be able to get root ONLY to downgrade the firmware version on the G2 as it screws up the property service.

For those that may be skeptical about this being the exploit used I'm sure you saw the text "property service neutered" when you ran it

That comes from line 94 in code
Code:
printf("property service neutered.\n");


full psneuter source code is here https://github.com/tmzt/g2root-kmod/blob/master/scotty2/psneuter/psneuter.c

There is no need to be sarcastic. This root method was designed so you could downgrade your phones firmware, its supposed to be a temp root thing. This method is highly unrecommended.

The original poster was asking a legitimate question and flicks answer was dismissive.

The question is why? Is my phone going to catch on fire? Is there a security risk? Looking for more info.
