Default One Click Root Updated By Final /W Superuser 3.0.6 Binary 3.0.3 DOWNLOAD

One Click Root Updated By Final /W Superuser 3.0.6 Binary 3.0.3 DOWNLOAD
DOWNLOAD ONE CLICK ROOT /W FIX

10/29/2011 - Added adb wait-for-device command, waits for device before running script.

Download and run the batch file, restart the phone on your own.

For all of you who could no longer root, using the official one click root.

This will solve your problems, I added 4 batch commands.

2 of them fully clear out your android's tmp folders. The other 2 commands delete your su files before attempting root.

ENJOY

I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THE MAKING OF ONE CLICK ROOT, ALL CREDIT GOES TO MAKER.

Batch Script
Quote:

adb kill-server(kills any adb shell clients before attempting install)
adb wait-for-device(waits for usb debugging confirmation before continuing)



adb shell rm -r /system/tmp/*(cleans system temp folder)
adb shell rm -r /data/local/tmp/*(cleans data local temp folder)


adb push zergrush /data/local/tmp/zergrush(pushes Zergling exploit to device)
adb shell "chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/zergrush"(changes folder permissions)
adb shell "echo exit | /data/local/tmp/zergrush"(Runs Zergling exploit to gain shell root)



adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "mount -orw,remount /dev/block/system /system"(enables read/write on system folders)




adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "mkdir /system/tmp" (attempts to create system temp: this is a failsafe and not required)
adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "chmod 777 /system/tmp" (changes permissions on system temp folder)


adb push su /system/tmp/su (pushes super user file to temp folder)
adb push busybox /system/tmp/busybox (pushes busybox script to temp folder)
adb push Superuser.apk /system/tmp/Superuser.apk(pushes superuser to temp folder)



adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "rm /system/xbin/su" (attempts deletion of old SU files)
adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "rm /system/bin/su"(attempts deletion of old SU Files)


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "mv /system/tmp/su /system/xbin/su"(moves SU File From Temp folder to system Xbin)


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "mv /system/tmp/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk"(installs Superuser Application) - Requires you to restart phone)


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "mv /system/tmp/busybox /system/xbin/busybox" (moves busybox script to system xbin)

adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "chown root /system/xbin/su" (gives root ownership Of SU File)


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su" (sets permissions on SU file)

adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su" (links and copies SU File to system/Bin) -YOUR ROOTED!


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox" (sets permission on Busybox Script)


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "/system/xbin/busybox --install /system/xbin/"(installs BusyBox)



adb shell rm -r /system/tmp/* (Cleans system Temp)
adb shell rm -r /data/local/tmp/* (Cleans data local Temp)

That's the problem I keep having, it almost seems that there was some update, that locked the original SU installation from the android revolution, and nothing I have tried allows access, to delete, overwrite or execute them.
It wont update, it wont uninstall it wont overwrite.

Well i couldnt find bin 3.0.0 to emulate the problem.
But i added 3 more commands to the command line.
Its just like the adb shell rm /system/xbin/su
but it uses the zergling exploit from the temp folder.

This might be a way around your su file not being able to delete properly.


adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "rm /system/xbin/su"

adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c "rm /system/bin/su"

I added another copy command to make sure the su file was in the /system/xbin folder

adb push su /system/xbin/su





Try this and let me know what happens, no risk involved.

if this does not work give me an instant messenger name so we can get down to the problem.

I had it run 2 different delete commands for the su file, one after the other.

I figured you weren't able to run the regular command for some reason.

So i used the zergling exploit to attempt to delete your su file again.

GLAD IT WORKED FOR YOU

I have the first root with SU v2.3.6.2 binary v2.3.2-efgh. Everything is working fine. Do I need to update anything, or leave well enough alone?

You can update the super user from app market, and binary from super user app.


3.03 is safe


The 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 updates caused users to lose root

Thats what i made this patch for.

but you can use it to update yours as well

it is 100% safe

I tested it multiple times from 2.3.6.2 and v2.3.2

sorry to be such a noob but i downloaded the fix update zip, re-installed the drivers, even factory reseted and still not working.. im thinking its something with the su binary but i just cant figure it out..
what you said about the su file not being able to delete properly. This quest on regaining root access is going on 2 weeks, please help! Thank you for your time.

its your choice really, the original one click root will work just fine, if it your first time rooting.

The problem with the original one click root is, it doesn't clear out your tmp folders and delete the old su files before install.
So if you ever re install, it could give you problems like it did for me.

I will talk to the maker about using his zerg exploit, and making it a free app to root and unroot properly without using the terminal at all as some of you seem to be having some problems. If you ever used Z4Root, pretty much the same type of thing. I just have to do a little reading so that it's not going to give me developer troubles on the market. I may just post the APK on my own website and the forum, but i'd be better on the market to keep it legitamite because people often modify APK's and put things in them that you don't want.

Yeah and if you violate the Market rules like Better Keyboard 8 did with some other apps of theirs Google deletes you account and wont allow ANY of your apps to stay.

Yep, so what i'll do is re-package it into a nice little apk. give it to the guy who made the original for his own thread since he's the one who really deserves credit. I'll also host it on my website for easy access, but i'll keep it off the market. I will review the market agreement to see if I can make a little link button to my own hosted webpage within the app for ease of use.
