Default [Recovery][Root]Pantech Breakout Root & CWM Recovery All in One

Hello all! Here it is the easiest root and recovery method out there!!

Quote:
What is this?
This is a port of the CWM recovery for the Pantech Breakout, root.zip, and unroot.zip. I have grouped it all in together to make it as simple as possible. This can root, unroot, install stock recovery, and install CWM recovery.
Quote:
How do I install this?
CWM or Stock Recovery
1.) Download the .zip
2.) Extract zip to desktop
3.) Make sure all drivers are installed (Fastboot drivers are included)
4.) On phone, enable USB Debugging
5.) Connect phone to computer and enable USB Mass Storage
6.) Run RecoveryAIO.bat
7.) Make your selection (1-CWM & 2-Stock)
8.) Watch the magic!!!

Root
1.) After CWM installs pull battery
2.) Immediately hold Search & Power through Pantech splash screen (If the phone boots, you will lose recovery and have to start the process all over again.)
3.) Flash BreakoutRoot.zip
4.) Reboot

Unroot
1.) Reboot into recovery
2.) Flash BreakoutUnroot.zip
3.) Reboot
4.) Run RecoveryAIO.bat
Quote:
Buttons
The button layout for CWM is volume rocker for up and down, camera button selects, and back button goes back

Just wanted to say I solved my own problem, as started before I uninstalled backup assistant when I initially rooted my phone, word out cause I wanted to give it to my step mom, wiped it and got stuck at the setup menu, could not get past the language selection screen.......luckily I found a way around it, I held the camera key and opened the camera, took a picture and attempted to send it add a gmail attachment while setting up gmail it could not connect to the network which prompted me to connect to wifi from there I held down the search key and brought up the voice search the searched for Yahoo.com so it would open the browser then went to market.Android.com and downloaded titanium backup and lastly backed up vzwsetupwizard.apk from titanium and uninstalled it from titanium as well from there just hit the home key and voila fully functional phone again yay!!!!!! For those with an active network connection you can skip straight to voice search and proceed from there, not sure if anyone else has had this issue but just in case Hope this helps, not trying to hijack a thread thought I would share cause it was a tricky issue

I had the same problem as you at one point. After reading your post, I almost want to go back to that point just so I can try your way of getting out of it, it sounds kind of fun! I thought I had tried everything, but didn't think of actually taking a picture and trying to send it, etc.

I took the easier way out by flashing someone else's system.img/boot.img files through mtmichaelson's CWM recovery.

Lol the only reason I did it that way it's because I didn't have any stock images that I could flash lol if I had the stock image I would have flashed it that way for simplicity sake but either way just glad I could get it working lol

My phone auto updated last night apparently, I had rooted with superoneclick before but that does not work anymore. So I just found this and am trying to install the cwmod and/or root/cwmod .... I get the ""hellions with blue flames!!!"" message on this too.... followed by many ""data/local/tmp/sh: permission denied"" lines... The phone reboots in fastboot mode, then the prompt apprently is successful in sending and writing recovery... The phone then seems to boot as normal and nothing changed... I am kind of stuck.. is there a trick I am not doing?

I guess the big gap here is that there is no indication that cwm is anywhere, I have tried both options in this script... It just keeps booting back up as normal. So I can't flash the new su file in the first post to get root again....

You have to boot into recovery. Unfortunately if the phone boots, it will block CWM recovery. I will have to rewrite the SuperUser.zip to remove the recovery blocker. Re-run the CWM install and unplug before it restarts, hold the search and power buttons together through the Pantech screen, you are now in CWM.

I flashed the zip from your original post.. it booted up with root first time... I have spent the last hour freezing apps so it wont update again... I haven't rebooted since then, this root isn't a temporary thing is it? Also do I need to flash the one you just posted if the 1st one worked?

The first one I posted will give you permanent root, but recovery is broken after reboot. The second one I posted will keep recovery after reboot.

Follow the instructions in the first post. You will actually need to reinstall recovery again first, then flash the new zip.

Hey mtmichaelson thanks for all of your hard work. I'm totally new to rooting and I really want to try this method as it seems a lot more simple than the other rooting guides out there. I had some questions before trying this:

- when you say make sure all the drivers are installed which drivers do you mean? I saw the drivers folder in the zip and installed that (I had to find a 64 bit version online, but its the same motorala driver installation). Is there anything else I need to install after this? Is there anything i have to install onto the phone itself?

- I set my phone on usb debugging and enabled the usb mass storage

- I tried running the RecoveryAIO.bat once and chose option1 and it said "error:device not found"

aaand so i just stopped there. Again im new so thanks for being patient with me and thanks again for your work!

I have a pantech breakout
- version 2.3.3
- build GRI40

Some of the drivers are on the phone itself, and you have to let it go through the process of installing those. If those are installed you should be able to plug the phone into your computer, enable USB mass storage, but don't go into mass storage (it is like a 2 part process, just do the first) with USB debugging enabled and try again.

Also, have you already updated? Honestly I'm not too sure which build number is the newest lol.

Alright i managed to get the RecoveryAIO to install and now I've pulled the battery and held down the keys. The device did not boot and now I would have to flash the breakoutRoot.

Can you take me through this step on how to flash the zip file on the phone?

Alright, choose install from zip from sdcard, choose file sdcard, choose the root zip. Let it run and you're done!

well i went through all of the steps and flashed the zip file and seemed like everything installed properly! I rebooted the phone but everything seems the same. I was expecting it to delete everything but I still have all my programs and settings from before. is this normal? How can I tell that i've successfully rooted my phone?

Whole reason why I wanted to root my phone was to just remove some of the bloatware that came with the phone.

Hi mtmichaelson,

Can you repost the 2nd breakoutroot.zip file? The dropbox link doesn't appear to work.

Thanks.

Default Just rooted Pantech

Hey, So I'm brand new at this. I had to google words as I went. I kept having issues, until I realized that I needed to drag SUPERUSER into the phone via USB. Idk. It wasn't outlined here so I thought I would mention it. Once I did that, I just followed the instructions and everything seems to be working so far *knock heavily on wood*

This does not work for me. Everything seems to work, all drivers are installed, the AIO connects to my phone and transfers CWM successfully. When I pull the battery and reconnect it (holding the vol down and power buttons) the phone restarts then after a second or two the pantech screen turns on then after a second or two flashes to a screen that looks red, but immediately flashes back to the pantech screen and then continues to boot as normal. I have tried transferring CWM through the AIO multiple times with the same result. I also tried manually transferring the CWM recovery through ADB. Everytime it says it was successful but I cannot enter CWM after plugging the battery back in. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Cwm

I have tried to use your script a few times. I select the option to install CWM so I can try to flash your pre-update ROM so I can go through the update. When I do my phone screen goes black and says FastBoot has been enabled. Then it hangs and I get no indication whether or not CWM is installing. I have tried to remove the batter and hold the volume and power key after this but the phone just boots up normally. Am I missing something, or being to impatient or what? Thanks for any help bro.

You have to make sure the fastboot drivers are installed. There is one included in the zip.

Make sure you hold search and power until the Pantech splash turns off.

When done installing cwm, then unplug and reboot into recovery. When in recovery choose install zip from sdcard, then choose zip from sdcard, then select breakoutroot.zip.

I am not doing something right. these are the steps i have been following:
run recovery
enter 1 then enter 2 then exit
unplug usb
take out battery
immedietely press volume down and power button and replace battery
pantech splash comes up for about 10 seconds.
when it flashes to a second pantech splash i release the buttons
it boots the phone every time. There is no hesitation between the first and second splashes.
sorry to trouble you so much but i seem to get half way there and get shortsheeted.

So i did all the steps, except for the part where you need to hold down Volume Down and Power. That never did anything but boot the phone for me, so i held down Search and Power instead, and that brought me to CWM. I'm guessing this is temporary from what i've read here. If it is, how do i get the Volume Down + Power button combo step to work?

If you download the "BreakoutRoot.zip" and put it on your SD Card, then do the steps that we did, you can flash it from CWM and i imagine that should Root the phone. My phone was already rooted so i am not entirely sure though.

Take it from my double unrooting and triple rooting experience. There are TWO updates to complete for your breakout. Keep checking for new updates until your phone says you have the most recent. <sigh>

can someone help me

i downloaded all the zip files. i installed adb and fastboot and connected the phone. by the way i am familiar with rooting this is like my 8th android phone. i get to the recoveryaio.bat and for the life of me i cant get it to find the phone.

ive installed adb and fast after mounting the usb. weird how you have to mount it twice for the computer to recognize. i have mounted once and tried yet no availability. i tried different usb ports but each time my phone is recognized. i tried different cable. hmm what to do

TROUBLESHOOTING

I have win 7 64bt and for whatever reason after trying the various motorola drivers i could not get the verizon app that installs the correct drivers to pop up. I tried an xp machine and it worked.

Is there way to fix this problem? I think because my computer has various drivers from multiple phones may be the problem. I unloaded all the drivers, apps, etc tied to other phones but it did not help

Only mount once for adb. The second actually mounts the USB.

Default Custom ROM for Breakout?

Hey michaelson thanks for the root- it worked great!
Am I correct in assuming that there are no custom ROM's yet available for the breakout? I used the ROM installer and tried to put Clockworkmod on and the breakout but it wasn't listed. Am I missing something or is the breakout still too new for a custom ROM? Thanks again for all your help!

I am slowly working on one right now. I have had a lot on my plate the past couple weeks though. Will be back at work on it soon!

Default 1/26 verizon update

mtmichaelson

What needs to be done/removed to install Verizon updates?
I tried to use the unroot, and then change back to stock recovery but the update still failed....

I did try to use zergroot and superoneclick 2.2 prior to finding your method of rooting, because neither of those stuck after reboot for some reason.

Default Newby Addendum to guide

MTMichaelson - Thank you so much for this, when I get out of my financial rut I will donate whatever I am able to.

First of all it is amazing that you came up with this, many, many, many thanks. Double thanks for such a wonderful guide.
Not wanting to take anything away from it, since it is simple to the point.

However as a newbie, I was unaware of several things, that caused a lot of pain headache and endless googling to figure out.
And also getting the sequence of events just right.
There are also some nuances that will help the technically challenged.

Preliminary, pre-requisite steps to insure a smooth operation

1) Make sure the correct drivers are installed.
What does that actually mean?
At first I thought it meant, that when you plugin the USB cord the computer automatically detects the drivers and installs them.
Yes that is partially true, but that's not ALL drivers.
On my Pantech, I had to do something else.
First of all you may need to try different USB ports on your computer until this next step pops up.
As soon as the USB is plugged in, an Auto-Play popup should display, the first item says something like
"E: BootLoader"
where E is whatever drive letter your computer assigned to your phone.

I clicked this, and it prompted some Verizon installation.
THESE are the drivers that are needed.

If that doesn't happen, then your computer has not loaded the correct drivers for your phone, and you will not be able to proceed.

I would recommend you call your phone provider or manufacturer to help sync your phone with the computer.


2) The zip files mentioned in the post (Root and Unroot), that you download, need to be physically transferred over to your phone's
SD Card. Without this, you can't flash the phone.
Select the USB Debugging mode via the Phone Settings -> Application -> Development.
Go into mass storage mode, and check Windows Explorer to make sure your phone shows up as a drive in My Computer.
Then drag and drop the Root and Unroot zip files from your computer to your phone's SD card folder.

When #1 and #2 have been done and resolved then you can proceed with the instructions as normal.
You just keep pressing "Next key" until the prompt tells you it has been installed.
Then your Pantech will be on a black screen that says something like "Android Development Mode......Fastboot yadda yadda..."

3) I did not know a couple of things WTF does flash mean. Flash the phone, flash the root, flash the zip file. flash <this> ;-)
j/k. I also did not know what Battery Pull or pull the Battery meant.

4) So once you get to the black screen "Android Development mode, etc" and the CVW has finished the install, unplug the USB cable
from the phone and the computer.
At this point no communication is required between the computer and phone. That chapter is over.

5) So with the black Android development mode screen on your Pantech, this is what a Battery Pull means.
With the Phone still on, you take the battery out. Then you wait 30 seconds, and put the Battery back in.

5 a) Next is important --- now to power the phone back on, Press the Power Button and Search key simultaneously.
Be careful not to press any other key by mistake, like I did the first 4 times, otherwise the phone will boot up and you will have
to start from Square 1 again. This has been described and explained perfectly in all the other posts. You hold it through the Pantech
splash screen. If you see a Verizon or 4GLTE screen, then go directly to jail. ;-) Means you have to start over.

6) So ok I'll attempt to explain what "flash the file" means.
When you are in the root recovery mode of your phone (dos or unix looking text with options), there is an option to load and install a zip file that is on your SD card.

If you got here that means you inherit the factory and will go on a glass elevator trip with Willy Wonka to the land of the Oompa Loompas.

You will see a command line looking options, and you are in root.
One of the options in the root menu says something about install from sd
and also install zip from sd, or something to that effect.
You select that option, and then it shows you the file structure of the sd file and you find the appropriate zip file that you
copied over from teh computer.
You will get confirmation that it completed successfully.
press the back button to go back to the main menu and reboot.

7) One thing I did separately from this was to install the SuperUser app from the marketplace.
Once I rebooted as root, I opened this application, and in preferences selected the option to Su from binary.

8) I downloaded and used Titanium Backup to remove my Verizon crapware. The only way this worked was when I was rooted, and then opened
the SuperUser app and did the su binary thing. Then I opened the Titanium Backup up, it prompts you that you are using
super user privileges. Then it lets you uninstall protected and system apps.

Hope this helps and offers some more clarification to users who were stuck or confused like me.

Okay, so I ran the RecoveryAIO.bat successfully and then added the .zip files. I unplugged phone, removed battery, then held power and search button together. Then a box and the Android dude appear for a little bit, then the Android dude is there but there's a big yellow triangle with an "!" in it. Am I not waiting long enough?
