I almost read that as you are upgrading to an iPhone lol. (I hope not ) though ball and chain would be an apt analogy

Any clue what you are gonna get?

K0nane, I believe I can get you the cricket indulge (r915) for nothing. A buddy at work had one, a couple of weeks ago it started to give him a hard time charging, I believe a short in the mini USB slot from him yanking the plug out like a barbarian. It will still charge, the plug has to be propped up in a way that it has to be forced at a slightly angled elevation.

Other than that its perfect. Good at least for screwing around with. He upgraded a couple days ago so ill see if he has it still tomorrow (I'd imagine he does). Ill give you a shout out tomorrow.

Oh wow. Yeah, I guess I should have caught on to that lol. I think I read something about you getting married over on your twitter earlier this month. Congrats bud.

Must say from a married man to one soon to be.. though I'm sure you've heard it.. it's not too late for you, there's still time to run!

Do not ask for ETAs. A proper thread will be posted when a form of root is available.

If and when there is a root method available for you people, it will be posted HERE on AndroidForums. DO NOT come to IRC and start bugging us - especially Shabbypenguin - about it. No ETAs means ABSOLUTELY NO ETAs. No "rough guesses". No "maybe just an idea when". NOTHING. If you don't know what ETA means, Google it. Don't ask.

Thank you.

And yes, I know how ******ed I am for flashing without backing up, and blah...

So, I have odin and cygwin and sourcery codebench lite for the toolchain, arm-none-linux-gnueabi and sparce... although I can't figure out how to use sparce other than having it installed as the source code checker...

I've been trying to figure it out. Any developers out there? Can anyone make a basic kernel for the Samsung Galaxy Attain? Or, like Gypsybikes, give me instructions? Or tell me what variables I should set, other than cygpath, and export cross-config to the directory of the toolchain...

I would love to have a working phone again... OEM Tarballz anyone?
The only real way to make the kernel is to use Linux. I also have the source but it only makes a simple recovery, insufficient, with the basic make commands. I'm trying to work with Shabby to make a kernel that will have root. I was able to make some for the e4gt and I'm trying to bring that experience here. If I make any real progress I'll post again. Until then, any information, such as dumps, .pit output for partition info would be good too. Thanks.

Haha. Nothing but good things to say shabby. You made this happen. Sure you might have had others like bliss involved but without you it might not have happened. Certainly not this fast at any rate.

Default I'm a bit confused.

I'm a bit confused. I have a Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G (MetroPCS). And, I would LOVE to be able to root this phone.

From my own (unsuccessful) attempts (z4root, etc.), and from what I am reading here and elsewhere, I am concluding that rooting this specific model is NOT possible (yet).

But, I am also reading (here) that a root IS possible, and is currently being worked on/created, by one/several of the members of this forum.

But, here is my confusion: it seems from what I've read that the fix is there, but right now it's a "manual" drawn-out process; and people are now waiting for an easier automatic (one-step/click) process? And this is dependant upon something with/about the kernel?

Is this correct? Or, am I confused, and there is NO fix just yet (manual or otherwise), and THAT is why we are awaiting for this kernel investigation?

Obviously, I would prefer an automatic (one-step/click) process, and would gladly welcome and appreciate. On the other hand, my impatience would make me consider the manual process (if one such exists).

Could someone please clarify for me (and others), and I thank-you in advance for your patience, understanding, and efforts.

The manual process isn't a long one. A lot of people just want to be able to do a 1 click process because it is faster or simpler or just that they dont want to screw up. But if you follow the directions that Shabbypenguin wrote, it literally too me 10 minutes (not including download time since I have slow internet). I'm pretty sure that if I can do it. ALMOST ANYONE CAN. But make sure you follow the directions carefully.

for anyone really interested in helping please join IRC so we can get a kernel going for this device. I already have a framework but I am missing some recovery files and I need a good dd. The one Shabby gave me is corrupt.

webchat for the Attain4G NEW LINK!

I'll be on and off all day so hang out if you can. I could have this done today if we get it together and some people are brave enough to test. I know kernel testing is scary but someone has to go to bat right?

If anyone is interested in some kernel testing to get cwm going on the Attain jump on irc. webchat.irondust.net #hitsquad or something like that. I have a kernel ready to test and need some testers.

I can't jump on irc but if you want to host it somewhere I will test for you.

Shabby asked me to help with this kernel. I made a first one with all stock, then made a few changes to default.prop to make adb/insecure. After looking at the files I saw that there were some lines missing from init.rc to create a partition and permissions, so I added them. This should boot. If not let me know ASAP so I can pull the link. IDK if I can start a thread yet because I'm new to AF, but I will figure it out if we need a kernel thread. Once we have stock kernel booting I will work on cwmr, bless Koush!

I removed it because the kernel did not work. There has been a tiny bit of progress tho...maybe another kernel today. IRC is the way to go if you want to get things done...

you can try this if you want SCH-R920-0.0.5 trial kernel

I understand, I don't usually have time for irc though, and only test things made available to me by other means. Mainly dropbox. Ill try to drop by the irc this weekend, I should finally have a little down time.

That'll be great. the more testers we have the faster things can go, especially if those testers have ADB installed...hint hint.

Yes. There's no telling when a way to recover it will be found, if ever

Ok, I built the ROM from Android-2.3.7_r1 also if you really want to get crazy with some testing...If I get the recovery/kernel fixed I might just tweak the rom some. IDK yet, it really just depends on testers with ADB...I kid. I'll be working on the kernel a bit later also so stay on the lookout for links... Google+ is a good place to dev chat also. I think my G+ is in my details or just add me at jkirk777@gmail.com.

sch-r920-0.0.8.tar

If you ODIN this kernel you are risking life and limb. Make sure you do not have "REPARTITION" checked. If it fails on boot at Samsung splash try ADB. Also try to boot into recovery and do the same. Without some debugging information I can't make much progress on this. If you get a logcat or can get shell a dmesg would be sweet. Pastebin the result and link to it in the thread. Thanks. I'm not keeping my IRC on so I can get some other things done, but will get on if you want...Cheers and good luck.

After yet another week of trying to kang together a kernel that will boot, with extensive help from pandibear I have only succeeded in making a couple more of the 19 modules required, so I think I'm making 12 now. It's gonna take ALL of them being made at the same time to create a booting kernel before I can even get to the recovery. TBH I probably won't be able to do it without a device to test nonstop until it's done. The problem is this device uses Froyo AND GB drivers/partitions/devices and Samsung DID not release working code. You can whine at them if you want or pool together to get me a phone. I'm gonna keep working on it until I have a new project (I have an EVO4g and GalaxyTab 7" to play with) so I might get it fixed before the end of the year. xInterlopeRx out.

http ://androidforums.com/attain-4g-all-things-root/525708-root-flashable-odin-tar.html

i ran the root and after doing wht it does, it rebooted and has yet to come back up .
not sure what the next steps are(if there are any). let me know if i should now use this as a nice paperweight.

Honestly, and no offense, it drives me crazy seeing that people are still repartitioning. Reading the whole thread would have given you ample warning on repartition. In any case, lesson learned right.

Amen brother.. no better way to put it. I think most of us have reminded people not to repartition. Alas, it just keeps happening.

Default Test kernel

Alright, I'm kinda overwhelmed at the response to get the device. I cannot help financially however. I can use a bad esn device to save money. Here is a test kernel I repacked using a modifies version of the repacking tool from xialoux (I probably hacked that name). I changed the script to use the proper mach for the Attain instead of a generic device. Please leave feedback and ANY logcat if you get one. If you can get shell access please get get a dmesg or kmesg. If you don't know how to do these things join the IRC and I will help you.

http://www.teamtroll.info/releases/SCH-R920/sch-r920-repack-0.1.1.tar

Be sure "repartition" is NOT checked when you use ODIN. Have the stock kernel on hand to flash back if necessary.
