Default root,s-off,simunlock,superCID htc merge

*read this as many have noticed,multiupload has effed it up for us. im in the process of mirroring all files,starting with the basics and downgrade RUU,then the upgrade RUUs. since free time is limited and uploads are slow,please bear with me. if youd like a specific upgrade ruu,please PM me,or post at the end of the thread and ill move it up to the top of the priority list.

sorry for the inconvenience.
__________________________________________________ _______________
this is a guide to root the htc merge. there are a couple out there allready,all ive done is try and simply the process,i take no credit for any of this. this is geared toward folks who are somewhat overwhelmed at the thot of setting up the android SDK and adb.

it should work on froyo or gingerbread,on any carrier,with the creation of a gold card.

*DISCLAIMER im not responsible if your phone melts,explodes,or becomes otherwise unuseable

*WARNING this will wipe your data

*DISCLAIMER(READ THIS!) flashing a different carriers stock software and firmware can potentially destroy APN and other settings that make multi-media messages and mobile data work. it can be difficult to restore these settings to make the device function normally on that service. i have not had any trouble whatsoever using any of the ruus on verizon,and usc users do not seem to have trouble either. smaller carriers such as bluegrass wireless and nTelos are more likely to encounter these issues. we are working on resolving these issues,but please proceede with caution.

first and foremost to give credit where credit is due:
-drellisdee on xda for figuring out how to downgrade to s-offable vzw firmware. check out his original thread here where 95% of the links,code,and files came from. please donate to him so he can continue developing for the merge.
-alpharev/unrevoked for their zergRush temp root tool and everything they do for the root community
-Scotty2 & Tmzt who wrote and developed the wpthis & gfree exploits for the G2 without these s-off for lexikon wouldn't have been possible. special thanks to them.
-sele and the crew in the "rescue squad" on the thunderbolt forum for what i like to call the "mini-adb" concept.
-B Rich for being the first tester
-chill0398 for providing images for the bluegrass wireless firmware
-prolly more,that ill add as i think of them.


1)make a goldcard. this is neccessary in order to flash a different carriers RUU. you can skip this step if your merge happens to be a verizon model.
directions can be found here
use the app goldcard helper from market. if you use it skip right to the step of "Go to this page and enter this new number into the SD Card Serial (CID) field" and enter the output of the sdcard cid for mmc2 into the goldcard generator site.


2)download these files
-miniadb_merge_updated contains neccessary root files and some adb tools
Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

3)choose and download a custom upgrade RUU
*special note: if your current firmware and carrier is not one of these, you will need to substitute step 5 in this post,for the one in the second post,so you have backups of the important images to make an upgrade and stock RUU.

**make sure to check the md5 sums match those listed!**
if you dont have an md5 sum verifier on your PC,there are many out there for free. heres an example: Home of the MD5summer check it on your phone with scary aliens AFV


4)prepare to downgrade
-extract the miniadb_merge.zip place the extracted folder on the root of your c\ drive. it contains the exploits,the misc downgrade image,and some adb tools.
-install the drivers linked above by running the .exe file. alternatively,htc sync drivers may work also.
-place the downgrade leak ruu on the root of your gold card and rename PD42IMG. now is a good time to verify that your gold card is formatted "FAT32" by right clicking on the drive that is your phones sd card,then click "properties". if you find your card is formated anything else,youll have to re-format it. start by backing up all files to your PC as reformatting WILL wipe it clean. using your PC,do a full format to FAT32. you can then transfer the files back. *this is important-as your phone will not find the downgrade PD42IMG unless your card is formatted to FAT 32,and the file is correctly named.
-if you were using a card reader to do the above step,power off and insert the gold card into your phone.


5)downgrade with adb. make sure your phone is charged to 100% before starting.
-on windows 7,click the start bubble and type "command" in the search box. this should open a small black command window. from this point forward,all code will be in bold so you know what lines to copy and paste(or type,if you really want to type them all in). additional comments will be blue,and should not be copy/pasted. please note that each line is one command. copy/paste it into the prompt in your command window,and push enter. one line at a time.

-make sure phone is plugged in and usb debugging checked on in charge only mode

-at the promt in your command window:


cd c:\miniadb_merge this should change your command promt to "miniadb_merge>",indicating youre using that directory.
adb devices this should output your phones serial number,indicating its recognized

adb push zergRush /data/local/
adb shell this will change your promt to a $
chmod 755 /data/local/zergRush
/data/local/zergRush

this will cause zergRush to start,and it shoudl say "found a gingerbread!" or "found a froyo!" followed by a bunch of other funny stuff.

last thing it says will be: Killing ADB and restarting as root... enjoy!

you should then be returned to your "miniadb_merge>" prompt


adb push busybox /data/local

adb shell this should change your promt to a #

chmod 0755 /data/local/busybox

Next we backup our existing misc partition:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/misc-stock.img bs=4096
/data/local/busybox md5sum /sdcard/misc-stock.img
/data/local/busybox md5sum /dev/block/mmcblk0p17


Make sure the md5sum of the misc-stock.img matches the one from /dev/block/mmcblk0p17

exit to get back to miniadb_merge> prompt

reflash the misc image to allow donwgrading to older firmware:
adb push misc-downgrade.img /sdcard/
adb shell
dd if=/sdcard/misc-downgrade.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
sync


now you can flash the exploitable vzw firmware

exit to get back to the miniadb_merge> promt

adb reboot bootloader this will boot your phone into fastboot. press "power" to select bootloader

assuming you have made your gold card and preformed the above steps correctly,you should see a status bar as the phone checks the downgrade RUU,then asks to update. choose yes and allow the update. if this is the first time youve ever flashed an RUU in hboot,dont panic,it will take a few minutes.


6)gain s-off,simunlock,and superCID: once the 1.23.605.1 firmware is up and running,skip past the set up stuff,re-enable usb debugging.place your phone in disk drive mode,and replace the PD42IMG with your custom upgrade ruu. rename the custom RUU to "PD42IMG".

place your phone back in charge only mode,then in the command window:

adb push psneuter /data/local/
adb push busybox /data/local/
adb push wpthis /data/local/
adb push gfree /data/local/
adb shell
chmod 0755 /data/local/psneuter
chmod 0755 /data/local/wpthis
chmod 0755 /data/local/gfree
/data/local/psneuter
(to get temp root again)

adb shell

/data/local/wpthis
(to disable emmc write protect)
/data/local/gfree -f (this will supercid, simunlock, and s-off phone)

exit to get back to your miniadb_merge> prompt


7)upgrade and root:

adb reboot bootloader to boot to fastboot. select bootloader with the power button

assuming you have preformed the above steps correctly,your hboot should now say s-off,and hboot will find your custom upgrade ruu and allow it to flash. when it finishes,reboot. if this is the rom you plan to stay on,feel free to go ahead and set it up. immediately plug your phone in and remove PD42IMG from your sd card,and replace it with the merge_su_eng_toolkit.

if you used the vzw custom ruu,you are finished,as this one is pre-rooted. youll find superuser is allready working and in your app drawer for the rest of you,when youre ready to root,power off,then into hboot by holding volume down/power. select recovery with the volume rocker and power button. after a couple minutes this should take you to Amon_Ra recovery. using the volume rocker and power buttons,make a backup of your unrooted firmware(just in case ). now flash the merge_su_eng_toolkit in recovery. when it finishes,reboot.

congratulations,you are now S-off,sim unlocked,superCIDed,and rooted.


8)restore your stock misc image: after booting to your current carrier firmware,and flashing merge_eng_su_toolkit:

open your command window,and cd c:\miniadb_merge
then:
adb devices
adb shell this will change your promt to a $
su the superuser app should pop up on your phone. make sure "always" is checked,and touch "allow".
dd if=/sdcard/misc-stock.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
sync


*note- you technically are now done needing a gold card,as your phone is "superCIDed" and will happily flash other carriers RUUs if you wish. so you can replace the gold card with your normal sd card if you want to.

Just a tip to flash a ruu zip from hboot you can do "fastboot oem rebootRUU" this will change to a black screen with a HTC splash. Then "fastboot flash zip nameofzip" This will flash a PD42IMG.zip which must be signed unless s-off then you can flash unsigned hboot zips this way too. Works on nearly every HTC. To get out of RUU screen use "fastboot reboot" or "fastboot reboot-bootloader"

Scotty!

Awesome rooting guide here, sir!

You are certainly getting around !

Just wanted to drop you a line that I've seeded this all-things-root sub-forum with a template root guide and included this thread in there.

Since you're now a Guide, you'll be able to tweak the root guide, too, with any new links, etc. that you run across over here.

Cheers!

First of all, wanted to say that I joined this forum for the pure factor to thank you for taking the time to write all of this up. I'm following along right now on my Merge with US Cellular.

However, when I get to this line:

/data/local/zergRush

and zergRush runs and does it's thing (says the "funny" lines) on the screen, it says:

Found a GingerBread ! 0x00016118
Scooting...
Sending 149 zerglings ...
Zerglings found a way to enter!
Overseer found a path!
Sending 149 zerglings ...

And it will repeat the "Sending 149 zerglings" and "Overseer found a path!" about 7 or 8 times and then eventually I'll get the line:

Zerglings did not leave interesting stuff

And I'll get a blank command prompt. I'm not one to post a question and ask about my issue, but I did a quick google search for "Zerglings did not leave interesting stuff" with no results. Attached I have a picture of how I have things laid out in my C drive (the folder) so if I have something there that's wrong maybe? I'm not sure.

But anyway, do you have any idea of what could be wrong? Again I appreciate all of your help, I'm really excited to finally root my Merge

hmm,not really sure. i have no merge to test on,so i couldnt say for sure this would work. zergRush did work just fine on my 2.3.4 incredible. at first glance,it looks like youre doing everything right,and its just not working.

your merge is currently s-on,and not rooted,correct?

only thing that comes to mind right away,is maybe you could download the zergRush binary from xda,in case it has been updated.

download it from here:
Revolutionary - zergRush local root 2.2/2.3 [22-10: Samsung/SE update] - xda-developers

delete the one thats currently in your miniadb_merge folder,and replace it with this one. if its different,your md5 sum wont match the one i listed,but thats ok.

grasping at straws,make sure phone is in charge only mode,usb debugging checked on,and "allow non market app installs" is checked. ill sleep on it(been sitting in front of this screen too long) and let you know if i can think anything else...

edit:i have found a vzw merge for what im willing to pay for one,so if its still available ill pick it up and hopefully be of more help its a lil tricky to do things for a phone you dont have

second edit: a copy of your session may prove helpful. right click,click "mark" then highlight everyting. hit enter. in a post,click the # simbol to get the CODE tags. right click inside the tags and then paste.

Thanks for the quick reply. Haha I totally understand with you not having the phone, and that's why things are so impressive.

I've decided to put things aside for now, but I'll be trying what you recommended later on tonight.

Yes, the phone is in charge only mode, usb debugging mode is on, and yes I can install non-market applications.

I didn't see your 2nd edit in time there. I've lost my session, but I'll re-do things if I run into problems later on tonight. I tried to highlight things to send it to you, but I couldn't figure it out I consider myself an "advanced" computer user, but haven't messed with a command prompt very much at all.

Thanks again for all of the help, I'll be back later tonight with my findings.

Also, to answer another question and to give more information, I'm running the latest Gingerbread (updated literally 2 weeks ago) and everything else is bone stock. The S-on is "on" or what not.

We have progress! What you linked worked out great for me. I replaced the binary file and tried it again and it worked. However, when I try to do the following line of code:

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/misc-stock.img bs=4096

I get the error:

"/sdcard/misc-stock.img: cannot open for write: I/O error"

edit: this is the code that is right below the line that I'm supposed to skip because it's not a Verizon phone. Hope that makes sense.

And I'm stuck as of right now. I still have my phone plugged into my computer, afraid if I unplug half way through all of this code stuff I'll get in trouble. Also, you have a PM sir.

Thanks.

Didn't have the SD card mounted.....

So now I started completely over with the command prompt part and ran the zergRush a second time (oops?) and the phone kept on restarting on me (3 times until I finally took the battery out and got my pulse back) and then the phone slowly started back up and all is fine. Well, now, I seem to be getting an access denied error and I can't even get as far as I used to be.... here is my code:

sorry,i was sleepin however,you have done a fantastic job figuring out your issues

in this bit of code:
Code:
c:\Miniadb_merge>adb shell
$ adb shell
adb shell
adb: permission denied
$ dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p25 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p25 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096
/dev/block/mmcblk0p25: cannot open for read: Permission denied
the prollem you are having is simply,that you typed adb shell a second time you type that,when at the "miniadb_merge>" prompt to turn it into the "$". you cant type adb shell while in the "$" because youre allready in the shell

you got the error when entering the other command,because you need root privledges to copy that block. i.e.,the prompt needs to be a "#" not a "$"

all you need to do is start over,and carefully go thru and enter all the commands again,being careful not to miss any,or get any twice dont worry,youll get it!

I hate to keep coming back with issues but here is what I have now.... still access denied

Hard reset the phone and start completely over? I'm already prepared to lose all my data on my phone.

Did you try the reboots?

Allowing nonmarket apps?

Maybe try and re-download zergRush. Maybe its become corrupted somehow?

Going to pick up a merge tonite

Yeah did the reboots and allow non-market apps. I'll try re-downloading it in a bit.

Glad to hear you're picking one up tonight

try this:
open your command window.
then:
cd c:\miniadb_merge
adb shell
rm /data/local/tmp/booms
rm /data/local/tmp/sh
exit

then you should be at the miniadb_merge> prompt

start the adb commands over from the beginning

well,the good news is that i was able to duplicate your situation. i ran zergrush twice,and it started rebooting like crazy pulled the battery and it powered on normally. tried to run zergrush again,and got the same error thats been hindering you.

ran the above commands,then just ran /data/local/zergRush and it worked. found a froyo!sending zerglings,blah blah,lol.

the first command may fail(it did for me) so dont let that discourage you. run the second,then run zergrush again.

ive also got a verizon stock RUU and custom ruu now from backing up my system image,and i found a couple small errors in the guide(that i fixed) ill get the ruus uploaded,and copies of my sessions up soon. for now,im tired.

Scotty,

I'm sure you might already know this, but 1-click root apps like Z4root which uses the rageagainstthecage exploit work best when right after a fresh boot.

I haven't followed or heard that this is also true of root apps that use the GingerBreak exploit (I've looked at the code for that...makes your head-spin), but I wonder if it would be more successful when run after a fresh boot, too.

Just my two-cents .

You're doing great stuff, by the way...I love reading your threads and seeing how helpful and informative you are!

Thanks and cheers!

I'm gettin' so close here! I'm literally on the last step. It's the /data/local/psneuter line where I get the error "Failed to set prot mask (Inappropriate ioctl for device). And then I get the permission denied error when I try to do the adb shell.

I also have 3 screen shots attached of my file setups (hoping I have everything right). I replaced the system file from that rom download and put it into the PD42IMG.zip folder that is on the root directory. Yes, I know I have a couple of PD42IMG folders in there, but I wasn't sure where to put them exactly, so I figure why not name both places that and see if I get lucky, heh.

ok... you are doing a great job with the adb commands,you just have a little confusion about what were doing. it may help if i give a more detailed explanation of what the process is actually doing.

we are using an exploit called "gfree" to turn the secure flagin the radio from "on" to "off",unlocking the sim card,and setting the carrier ID to "superCID" of 111111. the supercid will let you flash vzw,usc,or alltell firmware without the use of a gold card,unlocking the sim will let you use it on gsm networks(it has gsm and cdma radios,being a world phone).

setting the secure flag off changes the s-on to s-off in your hboot screen,and is what were after as far as rooting the phone. this means the phone is not doing any security checks,and we can now flash a custom recovery(or a custom ruu containing a custom recovery) that we can use to flash the files to have root access.

unfortunately,gfree does not work on the current carrier firmwares. we have to downgrade to an old firmware in order to use the gfree exploit. this is what step "5)downgrade with adb" is doing. we rewrite part of the software that prevents us from going backwards in firmware versions,so we can flash the old vzw firmware. since youre on usc,its also important here that your gold card is working,as it will allow you to flash the vzw firmware that isnt designed for your usc branded phone

at the end of step 5,youll boot to fastboot,push power to select bootloader,and hopefully it will flash the old vzw firmware,wich is this in the files you downloaded: VZW leak 1.23.605.1 ruu.zip

youll let the phone flash this firmware,then boot it back up. once its booted,youll do the adb commands in step "6) gain simunlock,s-off,and superCID". when the gfree command is entered correctly,all these things will happen and you can cheer,pass out cigars,and open a bottle of wine the one little commnad /data/local/gfree -f does it,everything to that point is in preparation. but,everything up to that had to work.

step "7)upgrade and root" is simply flashing your previous firmware back to the phone,just this time with a custom recovery that you can use to flash the "merge_su_eng_toolkit",wich will give you root access.

verizon folks needed to copy and mess with their system image because there is not a publically available ruu for me to modify for them to use.

you,on usc have the luxury of not messing with that. i assume you chose usc gingerbread for your upgrade ruu- you dont have to mess with it at all.

hopefully that helps clear things up a lil for you.

Yes, I know I have a couple of PD42IMG folders in there, but I wasn't sure where to put them exactly, so I figure why not name both places that and see if I get lucky, heh.

from what i can gather,you have not booted into the downgrade firmware(vzw 1.23.605.1). psneuter no longer works on gingerbread to gain root access,so thats why youre getting the failed error.

all you need to do is basically un-do everything you did with the system images,lol.

prior to doing step 5,you needed to have taken the "VZW leak 1.23.605.1 ruu.zip",put it on your GOLD CARD,and renamed it PD42IMG. put the gold card in your phone,if its not allready in there. your phone needs to see "PD42IMG.zip",may want to check it with astro file manager,or scary aliens AFV(wich you can also use to verify its md5 sum ) and make sure thats how it is.

windows likes to add,and hide,file extentsions,so if youre using windows, simply naming the file "PD42IMG" should result in the phone seeing it as "PD42IMG.zip"

youll also want to make sure your gold card is formatted FAT32. if its FAT,or anything else,the file is basically invisible to the phone

so these 3 things are all needed to downgrade:
1) VZW leak 1.23.605.1 ruu.zip renamed "PD42IMG.zip" on your gold card
2) gold card formatted FAT32
3) gold card made correctly

unfortunately,you cant really test #3,that i know of. just hope that it works when you get to that step. #1 and #2,however,you may save yourself alot of headache by verifying them now,before starting the adb process again.

so if youre a little confused after reading all that,heres what you need to do:
1)undo all the system image moves you made. if you cant really remember what you moved where,just delete VZW leak 1.23.605.1 ruu.zip and your upgrade ruu and redownload them both

2)basically start over at the 2nd part of step 4,making sure to do the checks i described above,so the downgrade will flash.

3)just ignore the part of backing up your system image. i.e.,omit this line: dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p25 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096 now that i have a vzw system image,ill be removing it and tweaking the guide a lil.

hang in there,youll get it

got some thanksgiving family shenanigans to attend,later this evening ill try and get the guide reworked to be easier for the vzw folks,and get some copies of my sessions put up so folks can see what should happen when the commands are entered.

Man I really appreciate all of your help scotty, that's awfully nice of you to help me out and walk me through all of this. However, I have Turkey Day festivities for most of the day so I won't be giving this another stab until probably tonight. I will most definitely be posting back with my findings though

guide tweaked a lil,no longer needed for vzw folks to back up their system image and create their own custom RUUs.

added copies of my sessions,hopefully seeing the outputs helps.

updated miniadb_merge to now include the updated zergRush. tested on 2.2 and 2.3.4

vzw custom and stock RUUs are uploading... will add links when finished

edit: verizon links added

Just wanted to say I got the root working 100% now. Had some hiccups along the way but we got everything figured out. Scotty is an AWESOME guy and I couldn't have done it without him or this tutorial.

Thanks again!

Okay first off this was my first ever attempt to root a phone. Probably why a made such a rookie mistake like this. Any who, I managed to get perm root with the VZW custom ruu only to realize that it caused me to lose service with Bluegrass Wirless who is my carrier. Then I restarted to try another one of the custom ruu and reformated my gold card, losing my stock misc image and all my stock back-up. Can anyone please help? How do I get service back on my phone.

What did the boot animation look like wen you turned the phone on? Did it have any other carrier references? Alltel,USC,vzw,etc...

Is this a GSM or a cdma carrier? I've not heard of them...

Not 100% on this but I think its cdma. Bluegrass is a small company in south central Kentucky, that uses Verizon towers while roaming and in return Verizon uses Bluegrass's towers within there small coverage area which is why I thought the Verizon ruu would work. Btw the guide was great though and really easy to follow. Even for a nub muffin like me.

Also my sister owns the exact same phone with the exact same carrier is there some way I can restore my phone to stock using hers or if I go through the process up to right b4 you flash the exploitable firmware and then use her stock misc-image can I continue through the process normally?

this process does not change the meid,min,esn,or any other essential part of the phone,so there isnt really any reason that it shouldnt still work. is there a sim card in the phone?

my first instincts are that the service is dependent on the sim card,and that maybe doing the process with it in,damaged the sim.

if you do find a sim card,you can stick it in the other phone and see if your service works on it. that would tell us definatively that something happened during the process.

failing that,i can definately give you some directions to copy the system and boot images so you can restore the firmware that was on the phone,but again,i dont *think* it matters. ive run all the ruus on my vzw merge and its worked just fine.

are you near a wifi source to see if wifi works?

if you could,please tell me the software version number,the baseband number,and the hboot number of your sisters working phone. that may help tell what ruu youd need to use.

That actually makes a lot of since because I have heard that Bluegrass is dependent on their sim cards and I did use the one in my phone to make my gold card. I really appreciate the help, I will post the info from my sisters phone as soon as I can. We live in the same town but not with one another so it may be a few days.

I also found this post Bluegrass Cellular doesn't use a SIM (subscriber information module) card. It uses CDMA technology which does not require a SIM card. Your phone may have a slot for a SIM card if it is a worldphone so that if it was used outside of the US, a SIM card would be put into it. However, if you want to get a new phone, you will need to get one directly from Bluegrass. Another carrier's phone won't work with your wireless number. The unlocked phones are GSM phones and they won't work with Bluegrass service. Just get a new phone from your carrier. That's really your only choice. If someone tried to sell you a phone that was flashed to Bluegrass, that may work, but you run the risk of it not working fully or not being able to access the internet, for example. I hope this helps.

it does tell us that bluegrass isnt using GSM networks,they are using CDMA.

again,while the process did, flash vzw firmware,we havent change any part of your phone that makes it a bluegrass device(mainly the ESN,MIN,or MEID),so it should still work just fine. if you look in settings/about phone is your phone number still listed?

you also might double check in settings/wireless + networks/mobile networks/prefered network and make sure its set to CDMA. if it accidentally got set to GSM or global,that would make it not connect to the towers.

if you have a number to program/activate devices,go ahead and call that(for example,verizon is *228)

oh wow... i cant imagine what happened. you are not bothering me,and i must apologize to you,since we had no idea something like this could happen.

i will give you some commands to run on your sisters phone. youll have to run zergrush to get temp root,then run a couple commands to back up her system,boot,and recovery images.

then,if you could upload them to multiupload(Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!) ill download them and put you together an ruu,then upload it for you to download. i can tell you how to modify it,but it may help other folks in the future for me to have it as well. plus id feel better flashing it on my phone before giving it to you,just in case

before we can do that,however,i do still need to know the info above,so we can back up other partitions if needed and not mix-n match too much.

im pretty sure you could call right now and have them re-activate it,but they may ask you for a firmware number(wich will be wrong since youre on vzw firmware),and possibly to do a factory reset(wich youll have to do manually in recovery since youre not running the stock recovery now). if you want to deal with that,and see what happens you can... but if you want well get you back to 100% stock before doing it to minimize hassle and alerting them to possible warranty voiding

Oh wow so if I get you that info you can make a custom rom that will work with bluegrass and root my phone. Will it fix the missing number problem as well? Or do I still need to restore it to factory and restart? I called my sister and got the info you need: software version number - 2.05.557.3, the baseband number - 12.39w.80.14u_1.08.00.0320, and the hboot number - 0.88.0000
