adb devices shows me the h866c. adb fastboot reboots me into the Android OS. fastboot or bootloader needs a phrase or some verbage there at the end

I have sucessfuly pushed the files to the root directories. I need a Linux distro which I am downloading now with nautilus so I can copy some other files as well. Wondering if I can get the sd card out and use root explorer to change and modify these files will it be the same thing

im not sure any of you guys are understanding. you cant just run a few adb commands and be rooted. you need an exploit to let you write to system earlymon was merely point ing out some commands to gather information about the device

Well I am following the huawei mercury root from unleashed prepaids. But I need to copy some of the files to root directories with nautilus or a root explorer in Linux because that is what the directions for the Huawei mercury say to do. I had another coder suggest this method because of the pink screen download mode.

In all I put the h866c in download mode (pink screen) and move these files that I have subsequently pushed to /sdcard to then be moved to root directories with a root browser in Linux.

Default What I Know

here is what i know!

adb root = adbd cannot run as root in production builds

why throw and error adbd?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
adb shell
$
$chmod 777 /system

returns error Unable to chmod /system: Read-only file system
__________________________________________________ _____________

so lets change the entire root to 777 well that turns out to be the same error!
__________________________________________________ _____________

so i start looking at packages! by typing

adb shell

$ pm list permission-groups
pm list permission-groups
permission group:android.permission-group.DEVELOPMENT_TOOLS
permission group:android.permission-group.PERSONAL_INFO
permission group:android.permission-group.COST_MONEY
permission group:android.permission-group.LOCATION
permission group:android.permission-group.MESSAGES
permission group:android.permission-group.NETWORK
permission group:android.permission-group.ACCOUNTS
permission group:android.permission-group.STORAGE
permission group:android.permission-group.PHONE_CALLS
permission group:android.permission-group.HARDWARE_CONTROLS
permission group:android.permission-group.SYSTEM_TOOLS

it returns this! i can view packages etc and sub packages etc. but can't change the permissions on those packages! so i try installing this method!

pm install superuser.apk /system/app
pm install superuser.apk /system/app
pkg: superuser.apk
returns
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE]

OK now that i have seen this before on the phone downloading an app or playing a game this is getting funny now!

the only thing i can think of to do next is find a verified copy of a update.zip the huawei h866c will except.
I also noticed that with the sim card out it shows a cdrom drive and 2 usb drives which tells me there are multiple partitions on this phone. well there might be a partition hiding somewhere that we can't see. I also downloaded a very good root explorer app and /local is not showing as well as items in /dev?
so anyone want to share some knowledge maybe i can piece this together.
I'm have a little knowledge on MD5 but not alot about creating a verified update.zip..

test key is useless you need their key. and you cant edit that file without editing the kernel which you cant do without root.

Often, rooting involves finding an exploit to open that up when you can't get their key.

Ive got the phone and im willing to send it to you!

I used your letter bomb for my wii a long time ago!
wasnt it called poot?

ive rooted with the poot-debug.apk for 865c
for h866c it gives error 22 su binary was not written and error 67 su binary was not written.

also with superoneclick i get Hellions with BLUE Flames!

idk what that means but im assuming it means it cant read my sdcard

cheers GP

poot doesnt work ive tried different versionsof it too as well as every superonelick and fastroot u can get your hands on.

then i downloaded huawei's hispace which is pretty hard to find. its got a lot of rooting apps in there and ive wentdown the whole list of them and nothing has worked. I know that superone click gives Hellions with Blue flames !

I am attempting it now, downloading libraries.

If it works, I'll definitely donate and do thank you for your time.

It uses CVE-2012-4220
US-CERT Vulnerability Note VU#702452 - Qualcomm Android OS kernel privilege escalation and denial of service vulnerabilites

https://www.codeaurora.org/participate/security-advisories/cve-2012-4220-cve-2012-4221-cve-2012-4222/

Affected phones would have to be based on the Qualcomm code base. The notes on qcom's website say that permission changes in ICS and later mitigated the bug by restricting access to the device, but this isnt always the case (poot works on the galaxy reverb).

thank you for the info good sir. chances are you might want to post in the galaxy rush forums then as well, it is the sister phone of the reverb (altho i got root on it with cwm a while ago).

would this be able to affect s4 chipsets provided they have really crappy updates/software? teh ZTE avid has the s4 and is currently rootless

Tried it. Spent 10 hours trying to get Linux mint to recognize it in download mode. No luck. Did everything EXACTLY like they said. Booted into download mode, it ignored my linux and linux ignored my phone. I installed the adb drivers, the works. no luck. Help, I just want to get rid of the bloatware so my phone is useful.

Poot worked great for me. Thanks! Next step is to figure out how to get the H866C USB in to diagnostics mode.

giantpune done real good. Donation made.

I was curious to try this poot-debug.apk on my LG Optimus Dynamic (LG38C), another Verizon Straight Talk phone, which had already been rooted both manually (jcase method on xda) and via rageagainstthecage exploit (in SuperOneClick 1.6.5 or 1.7).

For those interested in knowing, this version of poot-debug.apk also works with the LG Dynamic (LG38C), which probably means that it also works with the LG Logic (LG35C). The only thing that is wonky is the screen resolution (fonts and text expand beyond the screen on the LG-D and LG-L screens @ 240x320 pixels).

Great job, giantpune. And, do you mind if I link to your original post (with your donation link) on xda? Thanks.

Seriously?

If you are going to link to giantpune's .apk in "your" guide without linking to his original post, at least also link to his donation link (whatever your contribution was to the process, your huawei would still be rootless without giantpune's apk). That way, people can at least make an informed choice about whether they want to donate.

My two cents.
