Default [ROOT] Flashable Odin tar

Pre-rooted odin tar


what makes this different is this is pulled from a phone taht has root already and thus when you flash it, will get root . so no kernel involved, i was hoping for it cuz this is a big download :/



as for how to flash it you ask? well hopefully someone here is a former indulge owner and can work with us

www.shabbypenguin.com/OUDstuff/Attain4G/Attain-4G.pit
http://k0nane.info/rom/odin-185.zip

here is the pit, and a copy of odin, hopefully it works for you guys worst case we gutta find a newer version :P

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO FLASH
open up odin
make sure re-partition is UNCHECKED
power your phone off
press and hold the following Power+DOWN+Home
press volume up to continue
you should see downloading
plug your phone into the computer and you shoudl see a yellow com number appear in teh box, like so



load the pre-rooted factory into pda slot
click start!

once you have it flashed you have root!

all credit goes to bliss and rangekid15 for the files



Make sure to double check the checkboxes, if your odin doenst look like the picture then you are prolly wrong

just to confirm, this flashing process wipes out everything like a factory reset, but with root access included? or is that not the case?

thanks!

no, this leaves your data intact, all this does is flash system. leaving your stuff alone.. i wanna say the dump isnt complete in that it has easy wifi from metro removed, but its either that or you guys can wait a few more days for root

and yes two coms are fine, should only take 5-10 mins if it gets stuck (which it prolly will more than once) use a diff cable,m diff usb port pull batteyr retry etc etc... you cannot brick using this

worst case is you have to reboot and flash it again

just for teh love of god do not repartition, if you do let me know how much you want for your phone cuz its gunna be useless to you

what exactly is the .pit file? I noticed in the screen shot that a .pit for the indulge was loaded into odin, for the attain do we need to load the pit file into odin that you have given us a link for? It seems the answer would be yes, but just wanted to make sure.

Thanks

From what I see, its the new prl update. 3027 seems to be a bit of a problem. does anyone know how I can downgrade back to 3026 on this phone?

Try snagging the Odin prl files from the admire forum and follow the guide there to put whatever prl you want.

Default Many thanks to all involved in root!!!!

Posting this from my Samsung Attain 4g that is now successfully rooted!!!! Thank You to all devs involved in the rooting of this awesome little phone. Also thanks to all who had a hand in bringing this to the attention of the heavy hitters. Without them, namely Tokenpoke and Chiwen, if I recall correctly, this device would not be rooted at all. Cant say thank you enough. If someone would be so kind as to explain to me how to donate I will gladly keep my word. I have never donated before so any info on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, cmadd.

I agree... I just make noise, its these guys that make the magic.

I don't test much anymore...not much time these days, my guide work is done in winter or if I'm injured, other than that I just climb trees and plant trees like any good semi-hippie ought to.

Cant say thank you enough. If someone would be so kind as to explain to me how to donate I will gladly keep my word. I have never donated before so any info on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, cmadd.
Thanks for the shouts, but all credit is due to the hit squad. All I did was go to the people I knew that could get this done. Shabby and k0nane are the shit man, and the people that work with them. Once they got involved it took them no time to do it.

Funny thing is I haven't even done this yet lol. I didn't realize it was done until this morning. I'm here everyday but I was only looking at the posts I've posted in through tapatalk lol, so I didn't see the official root thread. Doh!!

Everyone that can donate should; we owe it to them. Without our amazing devs we would have nada. We need to show them appreciation. I know shabby said to donate all to bliss, but I'm going to donate to both. In my eyes, without shabby this would not have happened for us. K0nane too.

All amazing people, lets thank them with the thanks button and our wallets.

Shabby, I'm willing to test whatever. I might not always be able to jump in the irc, but I'm always online. You can dropbox me whatever you need tested.

Overclock kernal would be awesome. (No pressure!! Lol)

The os stays the same. Only thing this tar changes is your factory files. All of your download apps, data and settings stay exactly as they are before the flash. Your phone will still be stock, but rooted.

Basically, using Odin to flash this roots your phone and installs busybox and superuser. Other than that nothing changes, so you don't need to back up anything, all your apps and account settings will remain.

As stated before .. check and CHECK AGAIN during the process that the repartition box in odin is NOT checked. It seems to check itself after you load the pit and tar files, so I repeat, MAKE SURE REPARTITION IS NOT CHECKED BEFORE YOU HIT START ON ODIN.

It will brick your phone 100% of the time and we don't know how to fix it after that yet. Just looking out for ya bro, a couple of people have bricked this way already because it was checked and they didn't realize.

I cant get the phone to come up on Odin. The ID:COM box wont take my phone. I can't get it to pop up. I've used different cords, Rebooting, Mass Storaging. Can't figure it out

Did you install the phones USB drivers on your computer? They're downloadable from Samsung. Also, did you make sure your phone is in USB debug mode?

Also, you have to put your phone in download mode before you plug it into your PC. You will know if its in download mode from your phone screen. Its very obvious lol.

I see no reason why it wouldnt let you download a pit file, did you try right clicking it and save it? anyway, you can also download using your phone and save it on your SD card and then copy it to your computer.

i usually don't say much of anything, but you guys are f%$#ing AWESOME! I've been a longtime iPhone user, and just switched to android last year with the Ascend, Admire, and now the Attain. This may well be the BEST handset I've eer had, and one of the best on the market considering that a root has been found! FREE METRO 4G HOTSPOTS FOR ALL!!
