Default [Tutorial] How to root the Samsung Rugby Smart

WARNING! IT WILL WIPE YOUR ENTIRE PHONE WHEN EVERYTHING IS DONE INCLUDING YOUR USB STORAGE.
I don't know why this happens but it does so backup everything beforehand.

1. Download the update.zip file below.

2. Copy the zip file into the USB Storage on the Rugby Smart.

3. Boot the Rugby Smart into Recovery
Quote:
To enter the Android System Recovery mode, follow these steps:
1. With the phone turned off, press the Power key and Volume Up keys at the same time.
The Samsung logo will appear for a few seconds and then disappear. Continue to press the Power key and Volume Up keys.
2. When the Samsung logo reappears, release the Power key and Volume Up keys then press and hold the MENU key.
3. Continue to press the MENU key for 15-20 seconds, until Recovery mode is launched and the Android System Recovery icon is displayed.
4. Release the MENU key.
5. Press the MENU key again.
6. The following options are displayed:
  • reboot system now: this option turns on your phone.<br />• apply update from sdcard: this option allows you to apply updates from your memory card to your phone.
  • wipe data/factory reset: deletes all data from the phone except pictures and videos.
  • wipe cache partition: allows you to delete all cache data such as log files.
  • install fota: allows you to install over-the-air firmware.
7. Use the Volume Up/Down keys to scroll up or down, then press the key to make a selection.
4. Choose the apply update from sdcard and select the update.zip file with the home button.

5. Now choose reboot system now and confirm with reboot.

Your Samsung Rugby Smart should have root now.

I used a similar tutorial from forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1317394

Before I go and flash my phone, can anyone tell me if this ROM has the wifi/usb tethering enabled?

Having issues. It wipes the drive as advertised but no hotspot available. Not sure if I am setting it up wrong. Any tips?

Update: Still not working. The error I receive when I attempt to activate the hotspot initially "hotspot/tethering active" appears at the top. However the phone tries to verify and I receive the message "Tethering/mobile AP is unavailable (is not set up on this device)"

Default having issues

So I'm not THAT tech savvy, but I'm pretty good at problem solving and one of those girls who refuses to ask for help until I'm up shits creek.. which is where I find myself now.

I used the update, but it only half worked. Apps like avast mobile security work but morphninja, rom manager, and others are telling me superuser isn't installed, specifically that system/bin/su can't be found. So I downloaded the paid version of su that didn't work, so I triedthe beta version, no luck. I reupdated, rebooted, tried rebooting through ROM manager clockworkmod recovery mode, it'll let me use that feature for some reason, can anyone help me please?

I am not able to do the Recovery Mode, i did follow the following steps...
1. With the phone turned off, press the Power key and Volume Up keys at the same time.
The Samsung logo will appear for a few seconds and then disappear. Continue to press the Power key and Volume Up keys.
2. When the Samsung logo reappears, release the Power key and Volume Up keys then press and hold the MENU key.
3. Continue to press the MENU key for 15-20 seconds, until Recovery mode is launched and the Android System Recovery icon is displayed.

The phone either reboot or reboot with SAFE mode, but not to Recovery mode.

If i push the Volume Up near the middle i am getting a RADUMP MODE instead.

Am i doing something wrong? Thanks.

[5/14] I was able to figure it out, i keep on doing a press and hold on the MENU which is causing it to either go to SAFE mode or just reboot. Just release and press on 1st and 2nd display of Samsung icon until the recovery mode icon comes out. Then PRESS MENU again (do not hold). The only issue i saw was the update.zip file i loaded on the external SD, the device can't read it from the external SD i have to move it to internal storage to make it work.

This isn't an actual ROM...

When this update.zip is applied, it simply adds:

sbin/busybox
sbin/sh
sbin/sqlite3
sbin/su
app/Superuser.apk

plus changes the permissions so that these can additions can boss around the rest of the phone


To answer your question directly:
It shouldn't affect whatever tethering you had or didn't have before applying, but it will let you add separate tethering options that require root

Specifically for rom manager: Our Samsung Rugby isnt (currently 05-16-2012) supported by Clockworkmod Rom Manager... check out
ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries
or google "rom manager supported phones"
or even
WARNING! Do not use ROM Manager!

To see if the update.zip actually worked and you have root, simply look in your applications for Superuser (it looks like the top of an android head with a patch on one eye)

You shouldn't have to buy the paid version (unless you wanna support the dev or need some of the advanced features)

Thumbs up Successful rooting

Went through the instructions as posted

Coupla things of note:
1) Phone had previously been activated, no problem coming back up and getting on the network

2) Tried to have update.zip on external sd card, did not recognize it there
moved update.zip to internal/usb, rebooted into recovery and it found it fine

3) After update installed, phone came up as if it were the first time turning it on... took a few seconds longer and had to re-attach it to google account

4) Titanium backup complained about su binary permissions and fixed them, but otherwise didn't have any problems running stuff as Superuser.

Hi guys, I've rooted my sgh-i847, everything works fine and I have a superuser permission, but when I'm trying to dump the rom with an adb, I got "permission denied". Does anyone know how to fix it?

@wathou6: Which version of recovery is on your phone? I was thinking of getting this phone, but I went to two AT&T stores and the demo models there had recovery version 3e.

As far as I know, 3e recovery will not install unsigned update.zip files. So I am wondering if the update.zip you posted is signed, or if you got a phone with an earlier version of recovery (2e?)

I don't remember which recovery version it is, but I will assume that it is 3e recovery and that this unsigned update.zip should work with it. I don't believe AT&T would go out of their way to push a firmware update just for the recovery since there aren't any updates for this phone at all as of my current knowledge.

Thanks wathou6. I have the Samsung Exhilarate now, but I want to trade it in for something else before the 30 day return period is up. The Exhilarate has 3e recovery, and it will not install unsigned zips (I get the "signature verification failed" error message). That's why I was wondering about this phone when I saw it had 3e recovery in the store.

I saw in the other thread that you were using an alpha version of CWM on this phone. How is that working so far? Are you about to do nandroid backups? Do you know of any custom ROMs being developed for this phone?

Default Recovery screen

Hi,

I 'm completely new to rooting. I had this Galaxy Rugby GT-5690 sitting for a couple of months while I was using my Lg Optimus LTE. I wanted to root a basic phone i.e.galaxy Rugby, so even if I am safe even if I mess it up. But when I turned it back on it asked me for the password which i have forgotten now. I followed the instructions and tried to start it in the recovery mode. It shows up the android recovery icon and then it asks me to confirm password. It does not show the list to choose clear data option now(or any other option or list for that matter).

Your Samsung Rugby Smart should have root now.

I used a similar tutorial from forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1317394
I would really appreciate anything helpful.

I will start on an odin root image, like the one found on XDA. I still need to get init.d working, and figure out how to change the images, but I am working on it.

The odin root method I posted (written by ^ kemonine96 ^ actually) may work out well, if the kernel is the same.

I would not recommend using any of the ODIN images beyond maybe recovery for gaining root. The safest bet would be to try the stock update root method and even that will be semi-iffy. I would wager the ril / antenna / baseband are different than the ATT version at least and who knows what else they may have tweaked...

I'm no tech pro, I'm just a fairly advanced home user, so I spent some time reading about what I was considering doing. If you haven't, read Tresezk's All Things Root Guide on this board, read all of it before you decide to root your phone. Then go search for some more info.

The actual steps are simple, you don't need any real knowledge about rooting to do it, but if something goes sour during the process you're going to have no idea what's happening or what you can try to do to correct it, and you just might have produced an expensive paperweight.

The update file ended up in a strange sub-sub-directory (I forget what it was) on my sdcard and took a bit of searching to find. Other than that, everything went off fine. Feels great to be a super user.

Thanks to the developer.

Take care

Now that you're rooted, feel free to play with other SDK versions (like ICS and Jelly Bean ). Keep a lookout on XDA .

I rooted my phone and the Superuser icon appears, but I still can't delete the apps I wanted to get rid of. None of my apps appear in superuser. How do I get it to recognize them so I can start removing stuff?

You need another app that does it. Superuser just manages the permissions. Try ES File Explorer or Root Explorer.

Titanium backup or Ultimate Backup may help for cleaning bloatware. You'll want to be sure to backup any apps you plan on deleting before actually deleting them. Otherwise you'll get stuck if another OTA comes through.

Good point Kemonine. I made it a habit of making backups, so I just played until it broke. Also, ES File Explorer has an app backup, but I'm not syre if it'll touch system apps.

I thought I find more on root the samsung Rugby smart I847 it been nice if some of you guys was good at root smasung Rugy i847 ,if you would unroot your phone. Then root it again maken a video of this..! I love to see my phone rooted,but the best I can tell by others post here. Some get their phone rooted and they work and other do it,and it does not turn out so well! I see a lot of thing on this post I would correct. A lot of people are not going to know how to get to mass storage.

1. Download the update.zip file below.

2. Copy the zip file into the USB Storage on the Rugby Smart.
This link explans about the mass storage.
How Do I Connect My Samsung RUGBY

3. Boot the Rugby Smart into Recovery

To enter the Android System Recovery mode, follow these steps:

1. With the phone turned off, press the Power key and Volume Up keys at the same time.
The Samsung logo will appear for a few seconds and then disappear. Continue to press the Power key and Volume Up keys.
2. When the Samsung logo reappears, release the Power key and Volume Up keys then press and hold the MENU key.
3. Continue to press the MENU key for 15-20 seconds, until Recovery mode is launched and the Android System Recovery icon is displayed.
4. Release the MENU key.
5. Press the MENU key again.

6. The following options are displayed:
  • reboot system now: this option turns on your phone.<br />€ apply update from sdcard: this option allows you to apply updates from your memory card to your phone.
  • wipe data/factory reset: deletes all data from the phone except pictures and videos.
  • wipe cache partition: allows you to delete all cache data such as log files.
  • install fota: allows you to install over-the-air firmware.
7. Use the Volume Up/Down keys to scroll up or down, then press the key to make a selection.



4. Choose the apply update from sdcard and select the update.zip file with the home button.

5. Now choose reboot system now and confirm with reboot.

Your Samsung Rugby Smart should have root now.

I used a similar tutorial from forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1317394

People these days seem to have difficulty with instructions... I don't mean anyone in here, just in general. You could also have used the Odin-Clockwork method to root, as that works quite well.

No matter what I do I can not get my phone into recovery mode. I followed both instructions (in the post and in the feed) but all I get is an icon of an android guy hopping out of a white box. Please help with this.

Try this: http://androidforums.com/androidforums.com/rugby-smart-all-things-root/620154-root-non-destructive-root-method-brought-us-xda-forums.html

I am a big part of the Team Rugby projects, having assumed full reign on the Rugby Smart (or apache as we know it). I currently maintain the TWRP apache releases and the kernels, being without a physical computer that can build efficiently.

Ok so I did this and everything seemed to go well. I had to transfer the update to internal memory first as well but whatever, it seemed to work. Now call me stupid but how do I remove the bloatware? I have gone to manage apps via settings but I don't see an uninstall option. This is my first smart phone but not new to pc's or linux.

First you should add CWM/TWRP:
(For CWM, see previous post)
TWRP 2.4.3.0

Use either of these to make a backup

Secondly you need an insecure boot.img:
MH-Kernel v1.2

This is also a slightly modified kernel, so far it proved to be more efficient than the stock kernel, meaning mildly better battery life.

With these two things you can play to your heart's content

Or.........

Flash to CM9, CM10, Paranoid or my personal favorite, AOKP-JB, all of which are already debloated.

Why are people still using the update.zip root?
Odin is faster, easier and doesn't factory reset your device.
