Default Root is now Available

Greetings,

First off, I'd like to thank Jmz for sending me the link to this thread. If it wasn't for him I probably wouldn't have even known about this.

Secondly, credit for this method goes to Bin4ry who created this simple batch file that will root the Kyocera Rise and other ICS/JB phones.

Here are the basics. Doesn't get simpler than this.

1) Download the file ( I used v3 ) and Unzip to your PC.
2) Make sure that you have USB Debugging enabled via settings, Developer Options and plug in your Rise to your PC Via the USB Cable.
3) Run the "RunMe.Bat" file from the directory that you unzipped the file too. Then choose "Option 4 Other" and follow the instructions.

The whole process took about 2 minutes to complete and afterwards the phone was rooted. I'd suggest updating SuperUser as well.

Here is the link: Root MANY ANDROID! [Upd: 17.09.2012] - xda-developers

I'd also suggest making a backup with Titanium until a custom recovery is created for the phone.

As of now, JMZ plans on doing some work with this phone in the near future so be sure to thank him. Also please donate to the people that develop on these phones.

NOTE: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THERE IS ALWAYS A CHANCE THAT SOMETHING COULD GO WRONG AND BRICK YOUR PHONE.

Enjoy...

As a side note. Don't get froggy and try to flash an unsecured boot.img. it will bootloop with what appears to be no way to recover from it. ONLY use this root to use root apps. Not to mod /system /boot /recovery

I did this and I enabled debugging mode.

I enabled File Transfer mode too instead of charging mode and it doesn't seem to say anything after it says "Connect device with ADB Debugging enabled now"

I think you should wait for an ICS ROM first. I'm just here because I found out you guys have some updated drivers I would like to look at.

From what I have seen, it seems to be a revamped Milano. I would suggest watching over there and seeing what can be shared.

Can you do me a flavor? I would like to play with your drivers if you don't mind. Nothing nasty, it's just you have the same processor as we do and I have been searching for ICS drivers for it. I am hoping if I can get the drivers then one of the other DEVs can port them to our phone.

I can hunt down the script to pull them if you need me to. I just need to make sure it will work on all Android phones.

I'm still learning this stuff myself.
And I'm on my Windows machine and the script isn't on here.
https://github.com/dsmryder/android_device_motorola_triumph/blob/gingerbread/extract-files.sh
That's script I was talking about. It's written for Linux, bash to be exact, but sense that's the most common shell, Linux. You could clone it or do a copy and paste. Let me know if you need help, I'll be on later to help someone else and I can walk you through a bunch.

PS: I really appreciate this.

I purchased the Virgin Mobile version of this phone and it doesn't appear to work.

It goes through the Restore step successfully, reboots, then...

Going to copy files to it's place mount: permission denied <are you root?>

Then the message about closing out windows and such.

That's with using v11. Any suggestions?

You could have it rooted, but the prompt might have glitched, just look through your phone for superSU. When I rooted mine I didn't notice any difference and when I saw superSU I knew it worked.

If not, check to make sure you have USB debugging mode on. and try again. and if it still doesn't work, hopefully someone more qualified can help you. <3

I also have the VM rise and used this method and it worked for me.

Default kyocera rise

I finally got it rooted then changed the build.prop and changed it so I can play gameloft games so I rebooted it and now all it shows is a blank black page what should I do. Also I used the ast reboot app and once that happened it never went back to normal its just blank. Also what should I do if theres nothing to fix it with because I cant return it because I rooted it.Also for some reason it still allows my to root my phone again but not unroot and the debugging is still working

Default Rise Root

I have root access to everything using this method, however, none of my root required apps are listed in superuser and the binary updater fails at step "making sure new su works". but again, everything's working just fine (ex: titanium backup) so i don't even know if this is a big problem.

not sure if it matters but i used the d/l v13. the original post used v3 and i think @NerdasaurusRex's video went to v11.

My apps aren't listed in superuser either, I think that is actually pretty common. As for the binary updater, I don't know about that, but if everything is running fine and you have root access, I don't think it's something you should worry about.

Uninstall superuser and reinstall the one from the market place. HERE if that doesn't work I'll send you the .apk for the current version.

source code for our phone. It should, in theory, aid a developer to unlock the bootloader and build a custom recovery, which could mean some custom ROMs.

No. Kernel source is just that. Kernel source code. It does NOTHING to support unlocking a device or a recovery

I did this rooting method but nothing shows up in the Superuser app and I'm not getting any prompts from Superuser. Tried two versions of Superuser. I've rooted my phone, so how can I remove VM stock apps I don't want and make changes to my phone now? I made this thread.

If superuser isn't giving you prompts the phone isn't fully rooted.

Its either missing superuser binaries, busybox, or a properly setup superuser app.

There was nothing in the directions on installing BusyBox. I don't even know what that is, but I assume that should've installed when I rooted the phone using Bin4ary's zip? And what sort of setup is there for Superuser - I simply install and it does show any apps or do anything. SuperSU told me it had to update its binaries when I did fresh Google Play install and it claimed it was a success. I followed Bin4ary's directions, it did all the behaviors to show it was rooted and the root checker app tells me it's rooted.

No. The newer su binary/superuser apk does not work right with our phone. You have to use an older binary in order for prompts to work, but the newer apk seems to work fine.

I am very new to rooting, but I downloaded Titanium Backup and as far as I can tell, it works fine. It gives me a whole list of stuff in my phone that I can choose to backup and I successfully uninstalled Mobile ID, which I couldn't uninstall before I rooted.

OK, but I already did that. That's not helpful. If I need a specific version of Superuser, can someone just send me a link for the apk? Because the Superuser and the SuperSU in the Google Play store are still giving me a blank apps list. And I went ahead and installed a BusyBox app from the Google Play store too, to make sure I had it.

And I went ahead and installed a BusyBox app from the Google Play store too, to make sure I had it.
It's the version of the su binary that's important, not the version of superuser or supersu.

edit: either way, the link has both. an older version of the su binary and an older version of superuser

Then the message about closing out windows and such.

That's with using v11. Any suggestions?
Any luck yet with your rooting?
I'm having the same problem ("mount: permission denied (are you root?)") with my Karbonn A26.
If you found a solution, please share...

I have a question. What device are you using with jb installed?
The reason I asked is because, I am not aware of jb being installed on a rise
Sounds like a different Kyocera phone.
The root procedure is this thread doesn't work to frequently. V2 works better but the versions of busybox and su in v2 and v3 are old which causes conflicts with many apps. I tested this method throuhtly before determining it does not achieve the desired results. If you have a rise try this method... http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2307306 I am not trying to knock anyone else's work with the rise, I am just trying to have others avoid the hardship I had with it! Good luck!

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm trying to root my "Karbonn A26" running on Android 4.1.1.
I know this post is all about Rise, but the problem we are facing seems to be the same.

I've tried a lot of things on it, but no success. Tried this one too and ended up with "error code 18: su binary was not written".

The su binary problem is caused by your system being set as read only. The system needs to be set to read-write. If I may make a suggestion, you should purchase root checker pro. The root checker basic is good but the information given to you from the pro version is so helpful. I suggest rootchecker pro then try rooting again. It will help you determine where the break point that is causing the root to fail. I suggest starting a thread specific to you device issue. There are all of people in the forum who can help.
