Default Aviator Root

I take no credit in this but trying something out and seeing if this is a way to root this phone. i have successfully done it as well as a few others.

PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD IF THE SUPERONECLICK METHOD WORKS FOR YOU!

What you will need:
Odin 3 v1.85
SuperOneClick (SuperOneClick - Download.com)
Your Phone

Download this (aviator root tar. If mac download the one for mac) (http://teamuscellular.com/Forum/files/category/4-samsung-aviator/)

Boot phone into Downloader mode
Pull battery reinsert hold volume down and plug usb cable in

Flash the .tar in PDA mode. Let it restart (should go into USB Debugging mode if not put in Debugging Mode)

Open up SuperOneClick and click Root.

Let it install SU and Busybox.

Open Superuser up in the phone (if not installed download from play store) hit the settings button and update SU.

It should update. To verify root download Root Checker from the Play Store.

Enjoy your Rooted Aviator

If it does not work follow the instructions in this thread: Galaxy S aviator root - Galaxy S Aviator Development - TeamUSCellular

It worked. Root survived a reboot as well, so it's permanent.

A couple of notes.

The download.com link to SuperOneClick appears to point to a corrupt zip - couldn't open it after multiple attempts. I had a later version of SOC on my PC (2.3.3), and it worked like a champ.

You may be prompted to install a couple of drivers when running the root exploit in SOC - just say yes, and click through the Windows warnings.

Final note - You have my undying THANKS for getting this working. The bloatware on this device was driving me nuts. I really like the Aviator, and can't wait for ROMs, but just being able to get rid of the bloatware is a lifesaver. THANK YOU!!!

Glad to hear this worked for you i take no credit for this it all goes to Imnuts from XDA. Though me and another guy from TeamUSCellular tried out the SOC and wanted to test it out further and see if it was easier to do which it sounds like it is. Hopefully this weekend if i get some time i will make an actual how to video for some people that like to watch videos instead of reading text.

Thanks for reporting back that it works. Hopefully soon we can dip into some ICS roms.

I'm having an issue running superoneclick. I have windows running on a virtual machine on my mac, and it keeps saying error when I try to open the application. Tried two different versions. I haven't ever had problems running windows programs or downloading roms and root for my other phones. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Not so sure on a mac i've never quite messed with one. A guy on TeamUSCellular has a mac and went this route it might be worth a try for you.

I can vouch for the fact that the mac instructions work super well... Less than 10 minutes and I was done!

hmmm.... I believe I've downloaded everything I need, but I'm a little confused by the instructions. How do I unzip the file? I try opening it, which can't be done on mac. Forgive me, as I have never rooted a phone this way, so this is a new experience.

Thanks!!

Also might be worth mentioning that I have the rooted file downloaded on my phone, but I haven't been able to use Superoneclick.

Which file are you trying to unzip? You say that you have already flashed the rooted file... are you trying to unzip the su binary?

on the Aviator_Root.tar.md5 file erase the .md5 extention from it to creat Aviator_Root.tar use Winrar (or mac suitable extractor) inside is zImage. If you want me to reup the file without the .md5 i will do so right now.

I can't seem to get Odin 3 v1.85 to work on my computer. Will Odin 3 v1.3 work instead? That's what I've used to work on my Mezmerize, and I know it will work on my computer.

EDIT: scratch that, I just didn't realize I had to run it from the folder with the configuration settings file. I just got my phone rooted, so I'm pretty darn pumped.

Are you pushing this to /data/local and executing it there to gain root?

To be honest i am not sure. I do not have a mac to test on. Odin flashed the root file and then SuperOneClick did the rest for me.

On a Mac, you use Heimdall instead of Odin to flash the zImage file contained within the aviator_root.tar file; then you must use ADB to execute a few permission changes and push a su binary over.

You can pretty much get rid of all the amazon stuff, imdb, and anything else you won't use. Im using Wireless Tether and it works for me.

I see there is a mac technique but is there a Linux based root technique for this phone also?

The entire Mac process is done via the command line/Terminal, so I believe you could theoretically get the Linux versions of Heimdall and the Android SDK (for ADB) and adapt the instructions.

Im doing this phone for a friend of mine and just need to verify some things. First, to put phone into download mode, is it camera button + power button + volume down? Second, is it necessary to unplug the battery? Im basicly just unsure of the beginning steps, but Im pretty good with Odin and OneClickRoot from what Ive done on other Android devices. Thanks for the help

Some have reported that not pulling the battery out that it has affected the odin flash. It is easier to pull the battery to make sure it is completely off.

To get into download mode i used Volume Down + Home + Power it can probably be done by Volume Down + Power. You could have it rooted in 2 minutes if you already have the files downloaded.

Stock Gingerbread does support apps to SD. Besides, there is 2gb of onboard storage for .apk files, which is a huge amount of space for just apps. Many apps work best on the phone rather than the SD card anyway.

I'd be a heck of a lot more interested in an ICS-based ROM. I'm hoping that AOKP will get ported over to the Aviator soon.

I ended up using that as well.

Sidenote Tegrak now supports the Aviator so we can overclock to 1.2 or 1.3ghz on the free app. I OC'd to 1.3ghz and on Go Powermaster (something like that) It shows i gained about 10 hours of battery life (idle time). So overclocking this phone increases battery life from my test. Seems pretty snappy to doesn't take as long to load some apps up.

Just wanted to give Now a big thank you and the other guys that have worked hard to share this information! Rooted my Aviator with little trouble! Hopefully it will start becoming a more desirable phone soon!
Overclocked it to 1.3 Ghz and it runs awesome.

Its not a bad phone it has its ups and downs even after overclocking it sometimes seems laggy unlike my Merge that when overclocked it is lag free. The 4g speeds are amazing though.

Yeah, it's been massively improved by debloating and OCing, but I think I'm going to swap mine out for the GSIII in a couple of months. My wife will be due for an upgrade towards the end of July, and I think she may inherit the Aviator while I get the GSIII.

I will be switching over to the GSIII as well but on the verizon network since that is where my brother wants to go through next so he can get a iPhone 5.

Odin 3 v1.85 (where do i get this? and do I download it to the phone or pc?)

SuperOneClick (SuperOneClick - Download.com)
Your Phone

Download this (http://teamuscellular.com/downloader/index.php?action=downloadfile&filename=aviator_roo t.tar.md5&directory=Samsung%20Aviator&) onto my PC? or phone?

Boot phone into Downloader mode (How?)
Pull battery reinsert hold volume down and plug usb cable in

Flash the .tar in PDA mode.(please explain this)

Let it restart (should go into USB Debugging mode if not put in Debugging Mode)

Open up SuperOneClick and click Root.

Thank you very much

Google Odin v1.85 and click the first link. Downloads right from XDA developers..SAFE...
Download it to your CPU

As for the .Tar link, download that to your CPU as well

For putting your phone into Downloader mode: Pull Battery - Put Battery back in - Hold Volume 'Down' Botton - Plug USB into phone
(Two notes: obviously the USB should already be plugged into the CPU at this point, and once in downloader mode you will see a prompt to push Volume up to start mode or down to cancel)

As to Flahing the .Tar file: Open Odin and you will see a 'PDA' tab. Click on PDA and then it will open your download location on your CPU, find the .Tar you downloaded earlier and select it, then in Odin click on START...Done!!

Hope this helps!

Thank you all, I rooted my phone, removed the amazon crap and over clocked it.
But what else is out there?

Thank you,

At the moment, not much. You can do V6 SuperCharger, or the Auto Killer Memory Optimizer (they seem to do the same thing) but that is about it. There doesn't really seem to be much going on for development on this phone, especially since the GSIII is coming out soon.

Is there any other sources for the .tar file. TeamUSCellular site is not working anymore.

Nevermind. Here is a new link that works.

Get the aviator_root.tar.md5 from the link, do not use the CR930_USCC_FD02_CL1016569_USER.tar.md5 included with the driver, not sure what it is for but that is what is hosing the process. I finally got it working now, so much faster.
