The only simi-permanent change Poot makes to the phone is that it puts the su binary at "/system/xbin/su". It doesn't change any settings or build props, it doesn't install or remove any other apps, and it doesn't change any attributes for any files/directories/partitions. I want it to do only the minimum to to allow you to get root access.

On the 4 or 5 models now that we have tested Poot on, the presence of that su binary by itself is not enough to brick the phone. And even installing superSU/superuser didn't hurt them. It was more likely caused by something you did with your newfound control of your phone that broke it.

yes by moving a system app that may very well have caused the issue. depends on exactly what you did,what app you used to move it,etc.. i highly doubt the root method did anything.

You can't just move a system app once rooted, the option doesn't suddenly appear. You have to move it from the system partition, in essence, stop it from being a system app. Then it can be moved to SD.

You could have frozen or uninstalled a system app through Titanium backup or similar. Always ensure you have backed up all apps before removing anything. If you're unsure, freeze it let the device run a day or two and several reboots with it frozen if it acts normal there is probably no harm in removing it.

I did uninstall some apps, and didnt back them up (like I should have).. I am not sure what happened... Are there any custom Roms for the Optimus Elite, such as CyanogenMod, or ASOP, that you know of... I couldn't find any by search... Or can I use one for an Optimus V...

no roms or recovery. but you can reflash the tot file to "recover" sort of. also there is a list of system apps here on the forum in case you want to put something back.

Nothing yet is available to use as we do not have a Recovery method in place. Drew is working on that right now.

Be patient, grasshopper. All in due time.

Leslie Ann has posted all of the system files. I can also post individuals if needed. They can be restored with Titanium Backup or use a root explorer to move them to the /system folder.

Thanks!

In case anyone doesn't know:

1. This phone is on sale at Target/Radioshack/Walmart for $99 bucks or direct from VM. With VM, you can $12.50 in cashback from FW for a net of $87.50

2. You can go to VM and change the plan. Click "don't see the plan you want?" and get the $25 plan for 300 minutes / unlimited everything else.

3. Now it's a super easy root to get wifi tethering.

Might be the bargain phone of the year.

I rooted my phone with poot, and it takes milliseconds to install the su binary. I rooted my first phone with the click root and that was a breakthrough as well. Poot could be the revolutionary method to rooting. It's so easy to do and youdont have to be tech savvy.

I've never rooted an Android device before. The time between me clicking the link to download the first apk and my phone being rooted was less than 2 minutes. Thanks so much for making it easy.

I believe Poot will work (or can be made to work) on many late-2011/early-2012 devices that that ship with android 2.3.4ish, kernel version around 2.6.35.11, and have a qualcomm snapdragon. But we won't know until somebody tries it out on a specific model.

i know for sure virgin mobile chaser/venture owners are liking it. the chaser reminds me of an off brand optimus v for some reason. looks similar. i know the venture is a small screen deal but its actually pretty snappy for what it is. i played around with one earlier. wasnt laggy at all.

Do you think this could work on ics devices, like the kyocera rise? And also, does the SuperSU option to uninstall root work? That could be a significant tool for getting your phone back under warranty.

I believe the bug does exist in some ICS source trees, but due to one of the configuration files read at startup, the bug is not exposed to userland programs. Even if the exploitable code is reachable from userland, I'm using /proc/kallsyms. The behavior of that file was changed to be a bit more secure. you would need to use another method to decide where in memory to put some stuff to make it work.

As far as unrooting the device, the changes made by Poot can be completely undone with one command in adb shell or really any app that you grant root access to.

Code:
su -c rm /system/xbin/su

I just pooted and what an experience it was!

I rooted my OV some time ago... so long ago I pretty much forgot half of what I did to gain root access, and since I'd suffered from (apparent) memory loss I was worried about having to do it again on the OE. THANKFULLY these two apps came along and made rooting extremely easy! I hit poot and quicker than a sneeze my OE was rooted. It takes longer and is actually more difficult to sign-in to google services using the Play Store app. Wonderful!

Thanks to everyone related to this method of rooting!

ALL HAIL THE GREAT GIANTPUNE!!!
I rooted my phone previously using the first method. Then managed to accidently install the update (I had been denying for weeks) and Titanium said I had lost root. Once I figured out how to install the .apk, POOT! and I'm rooted again.

I purchased the Optimus Elite on 09/05 and Pooted about the time the APKs were released on this forum. So far, so good. I would like to extend my gratitude to giantpune and hashtag for their hard work.
Does anyone know if it is safe to install the OTA system update without causing any conflicts, and if not, is there a way to disable the notification for it?

Thanks.

It'll keep nagging till you do. If you install it you'll need to repoot as the update messes with root. I have it installed with no issues.

I don't know why you would need to install an OTA update if you just bought your phone, should already be zv5


EDIT:at least mine was and I got mine very beginning of September September

Mine came with ZV4--purchased around the same time--but then, maybe it was hanging around wherever for a while.

Thanks for the reassurance.
To any interested parties -- I just tapped on the update, rebooted and repooted, and all seems to be in tact so far.

Mr.Pune, would you happen to have the code handy for this? Just the part about the input/output streams on the terminal thing? I've can run commands and things like that, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the output stream and put it into somewhere I can see it. I tried googleing it, but I still dont get it for some reason.

This is written using Qt. The terminal thing is a QPlainTextEdit. I'm running a command in a QProcess and inserting it's stdout to the plaintextedit with qDebug(). The Qt framework is heavily documented already and there are examples for all the features that are commented much better than my code.

Ahh, I see. Mine is not written in qt, but thank you for the clarification.

Just "upgraded" from the optimus v (the basic root didn't fix my memory issues) and this was seriously super fast and straight forward. Thanks!

About to use this on another phone (china sourced) with a snapdragon but GSM. Since your elite's aren't GSM, would that have a negative effect on GSM phones?

Doubt it's ever been tested. Would be good for a test though.

So I went ahead and tried this on my phone

Didnt stick

Here are error messages :

...
[+] Mapped 0x10000000
[+] Hooked mask_requests_validate()
[-] Error running kernel-mode code
[-] Failed to clean up our mess
...

Think you can tweak it more to be more universal?

Or, I've got this feeling, this is uses the same exploit as zergrush, and so anything that fails there also fails with poot?
