    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 .

    Wow. Made my weekend and probably my week.

    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.

    i think you would change it from zip to img and then flash it through fast boot . were you able to get a zip for a recovery i am having do much trouble with the recovery can you post it up please.

    Okay, here's the link.

    I guess I flash the "inputrecovery" file?

    ***Disclaimer: this worked for me on my breakout, I can guarantee nothing about what works/doesn't work for you or what you do to your phone.***

    Try doing this, except I think "recovery" is mounted somewhere else on this phone, you would have to pull it from there instead.

    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.

    Quick note . . . here's the output when I use "apply update from external storage" from the 3e recovery menu using the zip file from the online builder:

    --Install /external_sd/clockworkmod/android_device_PANTECH_ADR910L.zip
    E:Can't find misc
    Finding update package . . .

    You could try flashing the recovery via fastboot- unpack the zip file, there will be a file there called recovery.img. To flash it, connect the phone and run the command:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery [path to]/recovery.img
    On another note: the stock recovery won't flash anything that's not signed, that's why it's erroring out. And I don't think that the zip is flashable anyway.

    What do you mean you tried to "flash it from the build?"

    EDIT: Make sure you have your current recovery BACKED UP first! In case you get a bootloop or something.

    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.

    Did it work? That should be correct. Fastboot should give you something along the lines of:
    Code:
    $ fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    Sending recovery <xxx kb>....
    done!
    Writing recovery....
    done!
    Finished!!!
    
    I assume you're rooted- do you have Superuser, the su binaries, and busybox installed?

    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

    Yes this should be fixable. Boot into recovery and try to connect to the phone using adb. Then push the file (from ratso's system dump, in /system/build.prop) over adb like this:
    Code:
    adb remount
    adb push [path_to]/build.prop /system
    and then reboot the phone, you should be good.

    I cant use adb commands while its in recovery mode nothing shows up in my device tree

    To my knowledge, you probably have to wait for a cwm recovery then so you can create a flashable update.zip.

    If you've got nothing to lose, you can try flashing the recovery that ratso built using the recovery builder:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    and then installing an update.zip that contains a build.prop from a working device. (such as the one with the system dump that is posted here).
