Default One click Root!

Oneclick for all OSs!(Windows, Mac, Linux)

Download the One Click Root!!! Follow instructions in ZIP.

If it doesn't work for some reason. With your SD card out, reboot phone, run the BAT/sh depending on your OS(bat for windows). Try a few times and you should get root. Version 4.0!
Fixed various bugs!
Updated with some fixes and ensures EE14 compatibility
Samsung drivers if needed -> Drivers

Would not be done without the help of ShabbyPenguin, Jude, ThomasSkull666 and Vick from Samsung, nice fellow.

Exploit based on the awesome KillingInTheNameOf.
If you'd like to donate to me, I 'd appreciate it.

I seem to be having some problems getting this to work. I first installed the USB drivers mentioned in this thread. The phone is then able to connect to Windows Vista without issue in debug mode. However when attempting to run the batch file in either zip KMS or the ShabbyPrevailRoot it appears to fail. I have tried both with the SD card completely out of the device and also with the SD card in but unmounted.

Output from the KMS zip batch file:
Code:

Is there something I am overlooking outside of the steps detailed in this thread or readme file? I think when I did my dad's droid 2 I had to set it to PC mode somewhere but haven't seen that on this device.

I had an issue at first. I rebooted my phone and killed all unnecessary apps and it went fine. Be patient and don't give the phone any input.

killingmesoftly will not work 100% of the time, this was put out so that people could have root while interdpth tweaks it more to perfect it, hence the

I had to try it around 10 times before my phone got rooted. My phone was in airplane mode and selected the option to keep the phone awake. I selected batch file at different times right after the the phone booted up. It failed a number of times before i got it working. Just keep trying.

Is the source for KillingMeSoftly available? I understand that KMS is based of KillingInTheNameOf, but I would like to see what was changed to make this work.

I will be releasing the source, I want to make a few more modifications, and get this working for as many as possible before I release it.
KMS is just a few bug fixes, and a weird timing issue fix. And of course the one click roots. So gimme about a week at most to release it(probably this sunday) It's also still 80% KITNO

An acquaintance of mine was asking about rooting the Prevail. Still currently rocking my (old) HeroC, not sure when & to what I'll upgrade this bad boy next though. What phone you using these days?

I ran this on a brand new phone, it was just delivered this afternoon, talk about awesome timing thank you.
It worked first time no problem, the instructions are so easy a blind man can do it.
I left the SD card OUT I think that may help anyone that is having trouble.
When you run this do not be fooled by it saying error shabbypenguin is not a ... what ever the rest of it said, just keep hitting "anykey" when it tells you to.

I was trying to get Deca to get the Shift when he picked up his new phone. CM on the NS4G could use Deca's support though.

My buddy (who also had a HeroC as long as me) just picked up the NS4G & is loving it. I'm tossed between the Shift, NS4G (wasn't considering it till mu buddy gone one) or the SGS2 when it comes to Sprint, but I will require CM support, which is unknown at this point with the SGS2 phones...

carben i told you to stop spamming earlier.. if you cant figure out a 1 click or on how to click on the link in my sig that says prevail then you really prolly shouldnt be rooting...

As far as I know the only official maintainer for the NS4G was Koush, I can't been told otherwise from the powers above. Toastcfh will only be able to get CM on the E3D is the bootloader is unlocked, and really I wouldn't want the E3D, or as I call it, the super clown phone. Keeps comments about the Epic, the SGS2 & CM to self....

You dont need a video for this.

-Download and install the Samsung USB drivers for your computer.
-Put your phone in USB debugging mode - settings>applications>Development>USB debugging
-Unmount and remove SD card
-Download and unzip root files and run the .bat file
It will go through the process to root your phone. If it doesn't work, reboot the phone and try again.
**May take a number of times before it works**

Not sure your phone is rooted?
To check if your phone is rooted, download "Root Checker" from the android market
Root Checker

Download superuser after your phone is rooted to Grant and manage Superuser rights for your phone.
Superuser

Use Titanium Backup to backup and uninstall unwanted apps (be sure you don't uninstall the wrong apps)

That's not from rooting. The boost 3g network is spotty at best. Even before I rooted my phone it would run fine then go incredibly slow then fine again then slow.

Yes I'm aware it is not that great but it now takes more than 45seconds just to load the plain ol' google search page.

And this is from my home where it has been decent since the day I got the phone.

I deleted all of your subsequent posts (all asking about making a video on how to perform this root). Your posts are not helpful and are disrupting the thread. Please don't troll. Consider this an official warning.

I've deleted some of the responses to carben24's posts to keep the thread clean. PM me if this becomes a problem again.

I am new to Android, sorry if this is obvious, is it possible to return a phone to its factory state (as shipped) after it is rooted? Even if some applications are deleted while it was rooted?

Thanks,

Haris
