Default Different phone

Could anyone help a fella out here. I had a prevail and you guys seem to get answers for those in need. Anyways, I bought a new phone, the Pantech Flex through AT&T. I looked into rooting and such but it seems there isn't a method yet and I don't know if anyone is currently looking into it as nobody has replied to the post I made in that section on here.

So my question is, from scratch, how do I go about looking into rooting a phone that there is no current method? I figure I might as well start looking into it myself. So... where do I start. Might be a long shot but it's something to do until someone else comes up with something, if anyone does for that matter.

Pantech flex
model number-- Pantech P8010
android version-- 4.0.4
baseband version-- JYUS07232012
kernel version-- 3.0.8
p13690@bs196 #1
SMP PREEMPT Sat July 14 02:37:04 KST
2012
build number-- IMM76D
development device ID-- IPFX-I6TA-EMAG-3

Being that it's got ics, you can start by trying known ics exploits...

You will need to map the partitions on your device so you can adjust the scripts for your phone.
(using the 'mount' command with terminal emulator will give some info on what is mounted where)


Being that it was released on sep 5, (from what i gathered with a brief Google search) most, if not all, current exploits have probably been patched.

I'm in no way the person to ask about a new exploit... That's WAY above my pay grade... You may just have to wait until the super geniuses do their thing and then bask in the glory of their success....

Oh, and as usual... I take no responsibility for any damage you do to your device from following my advice. I do NOT own your device, not do i know anything about it outside the specs you provided.

Hmmm, if the phone has been out a while, there is a very good possibility you can find a rooting method just by Googling it. I've found several rooting methods for devices not listen here on AF by doing that.

Yeah it's a recent release (about a month) so there's nothing I've found as of yet about any rooting methods specific to this phone. I'll keep looking out though.

You can best bet that if it's a popular phone, one is out or will be out pretty soon.

Heres a long shot to try. Look if there are other Pantech ICS phones that people have rooted. If so, hope that it used one of the multi-phone use tools like OneClickRoot. A buddy of mine has a daughter who has a Motorola phone that didnt show any method for root. I checked out similar phones and seen they all used the OneClickRoot software, so I tried it and it worked. But of course, doing so, may result in your phone becoming a paper weight.

Absolutely. Any time it's not listed for that specific device there's a very good chance that you will end up with a brick.

Hey, no guts, no glory right?

Im so in favor of rooting that when I do make my next phone purchase, making sure its highly supported by the rooting community is a top priority. I gotta have custom roms and free tethering

That would be anything HTC htcs have been the rave of the. Community but regarding the pantechs. We have the opportunity here to start something just like the PANTECH burst usersers we can begin a movement twords these btw the galaxy series doesn't have much of a rom. Selection
