OK so after downloading every script you can possibly imagine I finally found a bat script scripted by Greekdev that rooted my phone. Completely no joke it was called Android ICS ROOT UNLOCKER 1.0 google it when you use it make sure that you wait for the device to be seen in windows after every time it reboots before you press a key to continue the rooting process .
The Following User Says Thank You to greyishere For This Useful Post:
Note to Mac and Linux users: download the ICS root unlocker, open the bat-script in a text editor, use the steps in the script to type adb commands in the terminal prompt. Worked like a charm.
Noticed that Pantech recognizes that I have rooted the phone in a little menu item called "rooted" at the recovery screen. Not sure what that means if I ever have to unroot the phone for service issues.
#terabyte128: not sure what to do with my zip file after I built it. How do I go from the custom zip to flashing CWM? I'm missing something obvious no doubt.
Okay, the recovery.img is elsewhere on the Marauder, as I noted in the other thread with greyishere and terabyte128. Builder.clockworkmod.com seems to have created a credible build from the img that I uploaded, but I have no idea how to proceed. The phone comes standard with "Android system recovery 3e" which I can't for the life of me discover how to remove or replace with CW recovery. I tried to flash the "recovery.img" from the build and tried to update using the zip file in recovery mode. Nothing seems to work. I'm looking cautiously at the tools here.
I tried the "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" using the img in the link in the thread above from the builder site. One img "inputrecovery" seems to be the file I fed the database; the other (I assume) is the rebuilt img. The zip (I think) contains all the files before they mounted as an img. Of course, I might be wrong about all of this since the site is not user friendly and I'm working way above my general level of understanding.

I made a huge mistake can i correct it. I decide to tweak some settings in the build.prop with editor found in Root System Toolbox Pro. Well I am not a hundred percent sure what was done because i left the phone and i came back to find my nephew playing with it. When i grabbed from him the last thing i saw on the screen before it reboot was build.prop editor. No i shows the pantech logo and even Android Is updating screen one but after it just shows black screen pull out keyboard lights are on and so are the front keys. But after long wait nothing happens with the phone. I battery pull it then go into factory hard reset still doesnt fix it. i can go into fastboot still. my question is can I use ratso's system dump to reinstall my phone. How would i do this
Ty for posting that script works just as you said... picked up my marauder today thanks to this thread i knew it was rootable :>
had to apply the su update fixer to update su binaries but thats a simple thing to do
... installed busybox separately and just waiting for someone to figure out custom recovery, btw hope u got ur phone working again greyishere... kids gotta love 'em...
