Verizon and casio have locked this thing down quite well, however, just like with all the others, there is usually an app that is preventing unadulterated tether. I was removing apps to see what happens and after doing a free for all on the apps i decided to try the tether and i didnt get the dreaded verizon screen saying i had to conform to their standards. The only problem was i was tweaking with the modem so much that now it wont connect to any cell tower. Had to return to stock and will get another one...without tweaking the modwm this time. Interesting side note - after full wipe and all modem settings to factory i got SIM CARD MISSING. I believe they had this phone made without the sim card slot, but from one of the photos under the " white tape" on the back (posted on phandroid), I thought I saw a place where you could mount the sim slot. The battery would have to be slimmer though....just an observation. I also think the japanese version does have a SIM, and the TYPE-L definately has a SIM...thats the one I am trying to get from Japan.

Default wifi tether

wifi tether for root users works on my commando, it connects easily to my wireless pc . but none of my tablets in the house even sees the thing , I was needing it to take to work, thus the tablets . I did read somewhere that because of dhoc or some kind of signal the wifi would only work with pc because of security settings in the signal?? Anyway thanks so much for figuring this out. If I freeze the activecare will this keep it from taking anymore updates?

Back when I used to be rooted with M80 I used barnacle wifi teather. It worked perfectly. Now days I have the stock verizon Wifi teather free. It works great.

By the way it was ruled in court that Verizon can't stop you from using 3rd party teathers. I posted a link a while back.

The FCC ruled against verizon that if you don't have unlimited data tethering needs to be included free.

You are already paying for the data, you can use it how you please

Cool Add another rooted 130 to the list!

Setup an account just to thank you, I had recently switched to a Gnex because of lack root on my C771 but I am very active and constantly afraid I will smash it.

Everything went smooth as butter except for the wifi issue which has already been discussed.
ie: first time around I did beginning steps with wifi on and couldn't copy SU in. Second time around I shut off wifi before reboot .. and all was good.

I also encountered an issue with WIFI not turning on at the end of root that was corrected by resetting proper permissions to init.qcom.sdio.sh.

PS. I did all of this without bothering with ADB. I don't know if there is a reason that you all like ES File so much I much prefer to use File Explorer FX. Especially when editing system files.

Money Am I Being Too Cautious?

Called VZW support and because I can't update to M130 they are sending me a replacement Commando.

Here's my concern. Superuser is showing in the apps list. Will this be a problem once I return the phone? They made sure that I understood there might be a $300 charge if they determine I added software (like rooting it), it was water damaged or broken, etc.
It's in very good shape other than my rooting it. I checked under manage applications and I can't uninstall superuser.

Or is this something they will not follow up on?

Default Add yet another satisified customer!

This is awesome and just way too easy! I had just about given up hope that there would ever be root for this phone, but I wake up this morning, search Google for commando root and lo and behold I am led here.

Excellent job guys, now I can use the phone the way it was meant to be used without all of the bloat. Off to try to install linux on it now!

Edit: Just installed Backtrack and while slow due to 800mhz proc and lack of ram, it is working flawlessly even with the gnome gui loaded. Best to stay in cli mode though, it's not as painfull.
Again, thanks to all who helped to make this happen, now I have a rugged pentesting (albeit no wireless testing due to not being able to place card in monitor mode) device!

Default wifi tether

The paid wifi hotspot feature from Verizon creates a full fledged wifi infrustructure mode hotspot. The wifi tethering application for the rooted Commando only creates an ad-hoc wifi connection. The problem with android tablets is they do not support ad-hoc wifi networking stock and you will need to root the tablet to be able to make the changes needed to enable ad-hoc networking. quoted from this page Casio G Zone Commando problem - Mobile Hot Spot [Archive] - Android Apps - Android Market

You have to root your device, remove the superuser stuff, and then bring it back to stock

That ROM isn't for the Casio Commando lol. That's the Casio Commando ROM ported to another device.
No one has made a ROM for the Commando. Something with the radios if I remember correctly.

a lot of people set up accounts to do the same thing, like i did a while back. I had the wifi problem too, but alraedy has been discussed. (and second on this fourm to be rooted if u count tommytopdrive) also we chose es file explorer because it worked when i tried it. you can use what you want, but it was known good, ya'know?

Not necessarily 100% accurate. I use an app called "quick reboot" to boot into recovery.

Yep, that's how I did this whole process. I was at work with no pc access, so no adb. I actually prefer working right on the phone, so it worked out fine by me...

Anyone have the http address for the m130 update? I remember somewhere in this forum you can check on your phone after rooted for the address, but all my stuff shows up empty. I am interested in the radio.diff file. The file should be a ".dat" file. This bootloader is a pain.

another noob here.

i can't get the su file to move over from the sd card to the phone. i assume it is because my init file is not showing rwxrwxrwx it is showing -rw. i leave the wifi off all the time, so i turned it on and back off with no luck. what am i doing wrong?

Great work discovering the exploit. It's what I have been wanting since I got the commando in the 1st place. Hopefully I will get some time to try it on mine tomorrow.

A picture is worth 1000 words........

I am totally smiling like a ****** with gas right now. It was a little funky and the 3rd time was a charm. I had issues copying SU and permissions but got it.

Follow the instructions to the letter on the 1st page and it works.

I did have an issue using Superuser and getting the binary update error that never updated and Busybox crapped out during install using the installer or direct install.

I deleted Superuser and tried SuperSU and no binary error and Busybox updated to the current version / level.

Superuser update fix did not fix anything for me either.
Use SuperSU


A side note and addition~ Back up your contact.
I lost mine after rooting for some reason. A slight curve was my backup assistant ran a back up after I had zero contacts and when I tried to import them it showed zero contacts. I logged into the Verizon account and went to "manage contacts" and they were all in the trash folder. I restored them as active then imported them using backup assistant.

I would suggest exporting them to your SD card, make sure backup assistant is current and sync with google is not a bad idea.



My commando is sooooo much nicer after root.
I am playing with freezing various apps with Titanium backup pro.


Kudos and a excellent job for the master that discovered the root hole.
Merry Christmas to all!

thanks to all for your help

I had a problem and i found out thanks to dodgef25 that it was how i was entering the text

it needs to be

esac
"SPACE"
chmod_0777_/system
chmod_0777_/system/bin
"SPACE"
chown_root.root_/system/bin/su
chmod_06755_/system/bin/su
"SPACE"
exit 0

all lower case letters, where i entered the underscore "_" leave as a space

once again thanks

If someone re-writes and edits superoneclick but I would much rather do it manually with the correct code that's tried and proven.

One click and you could have a brick if someone did it wrong,

Follow the details on the 1st page and you are good to go.

Anyone have the http address for the m130 update? I remember somewhere in this forum you can check on your phone after rooted for the address, but all my stuff shows up empty. I am interested in the radio.diff file. The file should be a ".dat" file. This bootloader is a pain.


Are speaking of...? CASIO G'zOne COMMANDO


No, i am talking about the update. The .dat file that is referenced for the update from Mxxx to Mxxx. i am tring to update the radio.diff file to see if i can swap between android 2.2 and android 2.3 as the updates update the radio preventing a downgrade.

This worked for me. Wish I'd found this forum hours ago. It works on a Casio Commando with the M130 update. Perfect. Thanks.

thanks everyone! You're the best! I successfully rooted my m100, completely from the phone using this method. It only took 2 hours thanked to a left out space. now how do I remove the preinstalled garbage? thanks in advance.

edit: I'm running M110 not M100

You can remove it but Titanium Pro will let you freeze it and disable all of the crap ware. It's a great app and cheap through Google play store. Unless you need the space freeze it.

NEVER ALLOW PLAYSTORE TO UPDATE BUSYBOX

I had a rooted M80 that a busybox update corrupted such that I could no longer use mobile data. I was lucky to get a replacement Commando, but it was M110, so I sold it and got a Galaxy instead.
Has anyone updated busy box on the play store if so hows it working.

Not too well. My wife hit update on her phone as she didn't know any better, this killed root access. Not too hard to fix just a pain in the arse, I had to replace the su file in System/bin and all is now working OK again.

Thumbs up M130 Rooted. THANK YOU!!!

Just wanted to add my 2˘. I received my replacement Commando and was able to root it the first time, no problems.

I just followed the instructions.

Thanks again.

EDIT: I figured it out.......I don't know how but I got it to ROOT WOOT. Kind of thinking I didn't have the box checked to accept any program not just "approved Google" stuff





Ok, I am kind of a idiot at times so bear with me. First time rooting a phone. I am pretty sure I did everything right.


File init.qcom.sdio.sh I put in
chmod 0777 /system
chmod 0777 /system/bin

chown root.root /system/bin/su
chmod 06755 /system/bin/su


Permissions on that file are rwxrwxrwx


The su file is in the /system/bin folder
permission on that file rwsr-sr-x

So what possible thing could I have screwed up?? Can I just erase the changes and restart all over again?? Really very clueless when it comes to these thing
