I unrooted using super1click. the unroot was successful. I downloaded root checker to verify and I'm not rooted. My problem is that the update still isn't working for me and now when I try to reroot my phone with super1click it fails at step 4 everytime.

Sorry I guess I spoke too soon. I had to attempt a to root it like 25 times but finally got it to work again. I had to turn off usb debugging. Reboot the phone (took sd card out also). the repower phone and not turn usb debugging back on untill the moment I clicked the root button in super1click. I am interested in if anyone gets this update installed and how they did it. I'm going to keep trying myself and post if I'm successful.

I hope we can get them re-rooted.
Others should hold-off on this.......you and I will be the test-subjects.
Do you feel special?

Yeah....I tried reloading many of the apps I thought might be required.......but no luck.
That's the only reason I unrooted. I was hoping to figure out the quick way to get the update while still rooted. Fail.

My procedure:

Close SOC on your PC.
Reboot your phone.
Connect the USB cable from phone to PC.
On the phone, turn on USB-debugging. If it is already on, turn it off and back on again.
Start SOC and try to unroot. Done....hopefully.

As you can see above...I found it worked most often when I toggeld the USB-debugging at least once after the phone booted. Just "leaving USB-debugging on" seldom worked for me.

oh and busybox. i used terminal emulator and you have to go in and remove things. i'll try and find the instructions.

Quote:
1) remove busybox
2) remove su
3) remove superuser

from terminal emulator
mount -o remount,rw /system
rm /system/bin/busybox


from terminal emulator
mount -o remount,rw /system
rm /system/xbin/su

reboot

through settings
uninstall superuser
from http://www.acertabletforum.com/forum/acer-a100-general-discussion/1527-how-unroot-factory-2.html

Also, you might have to use the su command in terminal emulator before doing those steps.

edit: Jesus. I can't find the webpage I went to to get the instructions on how to unroot and remove superuser and busybox. those instructions sound about right, but not quite.....

I have no problem unrooting, now.

I assume you are wanting to know if update can be applied successfully if you remove SU and BB?
I know others have tried that and gotten nowhere.

The problem lies in removing apps, not in whether or not SU and BB are present.

oh, because I have everything backed up, so if I were to reinstall everything, would I be able to update?
If not, someone on the vzw message board said they had to get sent a replacement device. edit: they didn't mention being rooted. it seems that even some people who have never been rooted are having the same problems with the update.

Backups have nothing to do with it.
If you removed apps the phone came with, it is too late.
Exactly which apps matter is unknown, but I know of no one who removed apps who was able to update.

You are welcome to try it for yourself.

so yeah, no way to receive the update from inopath. called tech support to have them just walk me through all the steps i've already tried, and i'm getting a new commando come monday. yay.

here's the steps I took to remove root. I did a factory reset, and it didn't remove superuser, then I rerooted and did this, then did a factory reset.

Quote:
->Removing SU/ROOT<-
- Open the Android Terminal Emulator and you will see a user prompt $
- su (Now you should see a # symbol. This is the SU (Superuser) command prompt)
- mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
- rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
- rm /system/bin/su
- rm /system/bin/busybox
- mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
- reboot
from Removing Root/SU/Clockwork U D G

I do believe this must be done before sending in your phone to verizon. I had to send my phone in last time because I smashed my phone into a wall and messed up the sensors.(why not test the limits??)

Im having a few problems with my Iconia A100. I upgraded to the new ics then rooted my tablet. I was succesfull in installing a few rooted apps but now for some reason when i go to market and try to install rooted apps its says that there is insufficient memory but i know i have over 4 gb on the tablet and 13gb on sd card. I uninstalled superuser and now cannot get it back. I tried to reinstall ics and re root the tablet. I tried to do a hard reset but does not work! Upon booting says that recovering image failed or something along those lines! The tablet works and i can download regular apps but NOT rooted apps. I want to know how i can just unroot my tablet or get it back to stock, I would rather just reinstall ics and leave it unrooted. Please help???

Have you looked into posting either here:

or
Acer Iconia Tab A100 - xda-developers

...

This is a device specific thread, not general, so I don't think we'll be able to help you...

Hello Paxchristos:

Well I got my new phone a few days ago. Naturally it is upgraded from m80 to m100 so as far as rooting goes, I guess that is history.

Interesting bit of information that I would like to share and that is veriszon has discontinued the commando C771 (GzOne). According to the salesperson, I guess most phones are on the shelves for about 7 months and sometimes less. The person stated that the cell phones are coming out with new stuff about that lengh of time (5 to 7 months) so the older styles are discontinued, what a drag.

I am not saying that you can not get a replacement, it is just they are no longer being sold at verizon stores, well at least this store where I live, no longer carry the GzOne Commando.

You know Paxchristos, it caught my attention, from an eariler remark that someone made about removing the bloaded apps on their phones, and then trying to do an update later, which in turns fail to do the update. If I am reading this right, big question mark, it appears that a certain app holdes the key to bring the phone back as it was when first bought. The million dollar question which one of these apps restore the phone back to it orginal state? I guess the next question, perhaps would be, why can't that app be fully restored like the other ones. I would imagine that sounds kind of crazy, but there could be some truth behind it. Just a thought, Paxchristos.

Nope, unfortunately, the update script is a pain in the butt, and literally checks for every single file that the phone came with, and does it a very weird hash check that I haven't figured out yet...

Paxchristos: If I am getting this right, are you saying that when you backup all the files that the commando has, then root the phone, and then some time later you unroot the phone and reinstall the backup files that you saved, but the orginal files are somehow changed, thus preventing a full recovery? If that is the case, now you got me thinking about this.

Yupp... the update-script innopath/Casio uses is one of the worst ones I have seen.

My guess as how to preserve the file structure would be rooting, then nandroid before any changes are made. If, someone wants future updates...

Paxchristos: ok, you got me thining. I know that you done a lot, but have you actually done, so I do not do what you have already done. I need the files before and after the backup, and also the files after the root is done. Where can I obtain these files, Paxchristos?

My thinking is there is a possibility we are not getting not getting all the orginal files back after we deleted them, even though we have made a compelet backup of these files. I really need to study these files, and no doubt this will take time, probably a lot of time, but that is life in the fast lane.

i've never done a complete nandroid after rooting. first thing i do is delete all the bloat. if you find a way to root the M100 update, I have a brand new, never been used commando sitting right here just waiting to get rooted. then i'd be able to do a complete nandroid with nothing modified except the recovery.

Here's the raw update-script from the M070 update, lines ~1-1129 are the checks.

I think what might be better than a nandroid is getting a shell root then doing a complete pull/img, from there I can turn the raw output into a nandroid. If you use nandroid to create a nandroid, recovery will be changed, and once again, update might fail.

shell root? pull/img? this is chinese to me lol. but the unused commando is M100. if there's anything you'd like me to do to it for you, i can follow instructions fairly well.

Paxchristos, I have not yet got to these files, yet, but I will. I can say one thing for sure, as the old saying goes, you can not have the cake and the ice cream at the same time.

More I think about this, and doing a cross reference on the files, which will take some time, for some dume reason, I think the root is holding on to some files, like glue and, I would venture to say you are actually deleting some of those files when you unroot. The second side of this could be when you delete the bloatware (as they call it) you might just might possible be deleteing some files that the update is looking for, and thus the update fails. It is a long shot, but I will check this. Don't hold your breath, this is going to take awhile.

If anything it might be the second... or the hash check they use might have a simple date/time last changed check, which people who froze wouldn't have touched, whereas people who uninstalled/reinstalled would fail...

I noticed they are still selling them on Verizons website.
Anyone else hear that this phone is no longer carried by Verizon?

The remark I made about the Commando C771 is that according to the sales person the phones can be bought on the web site; however, the sales person stated the phones are not being sold in the main stores, they have been discontinued. There are stores that say they are Verizon but are not, I found out this the hard way, when I need some information on how to do something, those store people did not know anything about them, except to sell them, not good. Kind of remines me of Radio Shack, the same thing.

Paxchristos: We have got to give Spike G a gold star on that one, for sure. Checking the date/time files, before and after, rooting or unrooting. Again a long shot, the update scripts for m100 update might be reading some part of a script within the root script, thus it could be a true, or, fase statement. Which ever way it is that could prevent the root script from working. Naturally it could be just the oppisite the root is not finding a certain script in the update, thus no cigar. One hell of a mess, uh?

Umm... the exploit used for current rooting was closed in November, that's why rooting doesn't work... (they patched Android, kinda like how windows has security patches every two minutes )

Yeah....they have NEVER had them in the stores in my experience.
Verizon has a large "real Verizon store" presence in my area.

Would like to know if they are truly discontinued.
If so....I bet we have seen the last of the updates.

Rafael: As far as I know the answer is yes, the main store here in Yuba City Mall no longer sells the Commando C771, and it is the main store for the two counties Yuba and Sutter. Now the so called non main stores might or might not sell the Commandos. I know that Sam's Club here where I live had tried to obtain the Commandos; however, they could not get them.

Now as far as the upgrade goes, only time will tell.

Paxchristos: That file that you sent me a few days ago (March 23, 2012), I cannot open it to read it. My system states that there is a error.

If you recall what Spike had stated about the time and date change when root and unrooted, that you can not get the update on the Commando. Well I have found that the update from m70 to the m100 has changed the kernel version to 2.6.35.7-pref and was different than what I had with the old phone. I have noticed that the android system files can not longer be seen as it was in the older verison (m70). This could be a very big problem depending on how it would be handled.

As it was stated eariler the backups are not going to do any good, eventhough you try to install them, after they have been deleted the first time, Spike already proved that aspect. Deleting the bloatware will most likely create problems when trying to restore the programs, there again the update could fail, because of the time and date.

My thinking about trying to create a root for this update (m100) is going to be a big headache and really not worth the effort. No sooner than you root this update, they in turn will patch it, like with windows whatever, and then you are back to square one, as we are now who have the upgrade (m100).
