    The only error I have is 3g not connecting after the update, but that could very well be one of the issues I'm having with my account at the moment.

    The update is pretty stable. I might have 3g issues, but can't tell because I don't have the money to restart my plan which ended yesterday -_-
    I don't see many changes. So far the only noticeable change is that Google Magazines is now installed.

    So far, no consensus. If you can get the update to work after you root, the root does stay.

    Power off the phone, then hold Vol-Up(Vol-Down?) + Power button.

    Is it safe to apply the update via recovery with a rooted phone?

    That's not how it works, stock recovery is useless for anything but wiping data.

    I was rooted before the update and I'm still rooted after. I haven't had any problems with the phone or the update. All of my system apps are still on the phone (Activate, Live, etc.) I only rooted so I could use adaway. I can also confirm that this fixes the USSD vulnerability. Overall, the phone feels a little snappier and more stable. This gives me hope for an eventual Jelly Bean update.

    HEY GUISE. I am new here. I updated my Rise today with that firmware update (I'm rooted) I have several rooted apps and I don't believe I've uninstalled any stock apps. It updated just fine. No problems except I get duplicate text messages now, which I posted a new thread for. So if you have any advice on that please answer or if you're having the problem.

    Mine's updated, but I can't root it... ARRR!!!! :mad: I tried Bin4ry's method... am contemplating doing a factory reset, but then I found the no PC method around here. Might try that later.

    Really? I was rooted but then the phone restarted and forced the update on me and now I dont have root access (even thou I can still navigate the root via my file browser) :(

    root as in / and root as in su are not the same thing.

    root as in su because both superuser and root checker are saying that I don't have proper root. Has anyone tried to root their device after the update?

    If you open Terminal Emulator and type 'su' does it work?

    I just unrooted my phone and restored because I was fricking sick of getting double messages and no one could help me. It fixed the problem and I lost all my precios texts from friends. Now I can verify it will not root correctly with root with restore bin4ry or whatever it is. Root browser works, nothing else does that is a root app.

    Try this! Seriously, it does work. Guess maybe I should post some screen shots later, but in any case it works for me. Sorry to see that you lost your texts. That's never good. :( I tried Bin4ry's method first as well, until I stumbled across this new method. I was contemplating rooting the phone manually. For me, this has worked out really well.

    I've applied the egl tweak, and have overclocked the CPU to 1024 GHz using No Frills CPU CLASSIC. It's not possible to go any higher at the moment, as the kernels that the Rise uses don't support higher speeds. I don't really care at the moment, as the phone is so much more enjoyable and responsive to use after a few tweaks.

    :five:

    1.024 is stock speed, the biggest advantage of being able to control it is to set it to use the Conservative governor which should improve battery life.

    So you can confirm this root method works after updating?
  18. LightyKD

    LightyKD Well-Known Member

    I can confirm that Superuser will say that you have Root access while your root checker will say that you do not have root... so yeah... im just as confused as anyone else because Poot gives me a daemon error.

    Just shot this a few minutes ago. This app won't run without superuser privileges.

    If su is in system/bin you may have to symlink it to /system/xbin too. Or the other way around. I had to do that on my TF101 to make sure all the root-capable apps could find su.

    You'll need to install Terminal Emulator from the Play Store.

    Open Terminal Emulator and type:
    su

    Superuser should ask for permission for it. If it doesn't come back and say so right off.

    Then type:
    ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su

    If that gives you an error about the target existing then do this one:
    ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su

    Then type exit twice to get out of Terminal Emulator.

    After that try to use a root app that failed before. It should work now.

    I have successfully updated to the latest firmware and still have root access.

    Okay, so I've never tried a root or anything but today when I restarted my phone it forced the update. Like sethseth mentioned I am getting duplicate text messages also. Anybody got a fix for this? It's pretty damn annoying
