es note editor: cannot move su,coppy su failed....
likewise. shows device. dont have permission to move..still trying . ??dunno.
FU** Ya it worked! Its rooted and de-bloated by freezing the apps and moving non-system apps to the SD card and all backed up by TB. Now what else can I do since it is rooted? Any cool apps?
I guess the Wifi does need to be off and rebooted. Just for reference before I got the SU file to move I tried to put the phone into Airplane mode to shut off all data, with no luck. Only needed Wifi off. (I did turn off Bluetooth at the same time too)
Also Copy and Cut and paste the file into System/bin didn't work, but Move into did work.
For others here is the end sequence that was typed into the bottom of init.qcom.sdio all 4 lines were added in at this point with this spacing which worked for me for it to accept SU.
chmod 0777 /system
chmod 0777 /system/bin
chown root.root /system/bin/su
chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
So I was able to root all through the phone no need to abd ect.
You said to remove the text just in case. Just in case of what? Is it best to remove the text or just leave it?
You have to move the SU file from SD to Phone using the ES file explorer not the es note editer. select the file and long press on it, then scroll to move to then find the folder system/bin and place it in there.
my bad. es file explorer. i still cant move it. denied. going to try the wifi off then on again. still not rooted
ES file explorer would not read anything or browse anywhere except the SD card. I had to use another file explorer called "FX file explorer" to get to the main directory.
After that, it was some careful typing, and the rest worked fine.
Thanks to everyone who made this happen. I have been waiting FOREVER for this.
so i think its my wifi for my phone. followed all instructions for rooting. and went to turn my wifi off.(which i never use). and it was off already so i turned it on.it says error when i go to settings,turn on wifi. i check it and after 5 sec it says error instead of wifi on. i took all the extra txt out from earlier. so it should b back to stock.right? still cant turn on/off wifi. so guess im stuck un rooted and now no wifi. tried pulling out battery while on. nada.any ideas what i f@%%#% up?
It sounds like you have changed the permissions on the sh file. Are the permissions still rwxrwxrwx for the sh file?
well look on the bright side...you're the last one having issues so we can direct our attention towards you.
yes please find out. this can be done via adb, look at earlier posts on how to.
You probably just didn't know where to look. For others who need help finding it in ES file explorer go to favorites then click on the phone. Now that I got root here are some screen shots.
At one point I got the same thing Wifi was errored out and failed. The 1 on the first line that was asked to add and delete came back, so I just deleted it and saved it. Then reboot and all worked.
i appriciate the help. im familiar with adb now. will check the sh file assp.
well, i tried to check the sh file in adb. cant get it. i did look in es file explorer and it says init.qcom.sdio.sh is: readable yes,writable yes, and hidden no. is that what im looking 4? i read the info on checking with adb in earlier post and tried it . im doing something wrong.
what did u use to get those screenshots?
You are the bleeping man! I followed your instructions on my phone (no adb needed) and it worked Aces! I don't know how the heck you found this, but THANKS! And thanks to the willster fella for posting links too. Good job by you both!
Next step Tommy, unlock the bootloader and port CM9 over lol
So my phone crashed. Resets randomly often and no WiFi. Lucky me Verizon is sending me a new 1. Who knows which 1. M80-130. The old 1 is a 130. I got it running again. No wifi. I have till Monday to play with it. Still not share why I cant root it. Wont let me push au. Must have something to do with WiFi not turning on or off...settings,wireless,check box to turn on. I check it and it tries then. says error . After a full reboot it says error even b4 I try to turn on.
Cerection: su. Not au.
to be honest, (and no offence), I really don't know what it could be. the Wi-Fi does not work when the file is changed. this means two things: 1.the changes to the file stuck. 2. the code then should be working. the fact that you can edit the file tells me that it is still rwxrwxrwx. wait a second...please don't tell me you can't copy because your system storage is full. check that. it would be the best lol to this that I can think of.
anyway, if the above turns up empty, and if you fell up to it when you get your new phone, upload a YouTube video of you following the steps, if that makes since.
By "system storage" do u mean my memory on the phone? Not the ad card. Or what.this thing is like New from the store. Only v bloat etc. On it.
Personally, I like root explorer because it gives the permissions right on the screen. I also got an error on the WiFi and found it was because the permissions were not like the one in my screen shot.
The app is Screen Shot free on Google play. You must be rooted for it to work. There are a few non-root screen shots but not to sure if they are free or if they work on our phone.
ok if its new then it should not be a problem. Did you just get it or is it the same one we have been trying to figure out?
i'm also getting the WiFi Error. Can someone please explain how to set the permissions on the sh file?
I've tried both.... I have Root Explorer on my rooted TF700 and ES File Explorer on my newly rooted Commando. Thanks to you tommytopdrive. I don't know which one I prefer because I like the permissions on the screen with Root Explorer, like you, but I like the look of ES File Explorer and it seems to be safer for the things that could potentially brick my phone if I wasn't aware of what I was doing.
I'm not a software writer/engineer by any means, but I followed exactly what you did on your first try, just without turning any of my wireless stuff off. It worked, and my wifi/gps/3g/bluetooth all work. Thanks again for sharing all this with us.
For those of you who don't know what you're doing, don't just skip to where it might look like there's good information for rooting your Commando. READ THROUGH EVERYTHING, all the answers are somewhere in this thread, THOROUGHLY search for them and you'll find them. I just followed what tommytopdrive posted as an experiment and then found what Willster419 posted about the 10-steps to root, on the bottom of the same page of the thread (page 1). It worked flawlessly for me, and I'm not a software kinda guy.
For those of you still too lazy to look at everything on the thread, here are the steps to root the M130 build of the Casio G'zOne Commando. If there are quotation marks around something, that means I am referencing it. The stuff in between the quotation marks is the important material.
A. YOU ALSO NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE commando "drivers.zip" THAT HAVE BEEN POSTED. ALONG WITH THE "casio 130 root.zip" FILE PROVIDED IN THIS THREAD. Unzip them to a place you won't forget. And install the "drivers" before connecting your phone to the computer.
B. Turn on USB Debugging on your phone.
1. Install es file explorer from the play store.
2. Open it once it is done downloading and installing.
3. In the top left corner of the screen, there is a star with "Favorites" under it... Click on it.
4. Select the phone icon with a "/" under it.
5. In that so-called directory or folder you'll find another folder named "system". Select that folder.
6. Within that directory you'll find "etc". Select it.
7. In that folder there is a file named "init.qcom.sdio.sh"... Long press (hold your finger on that file) until a menu pops up. (filepath should be /system/etc/init.qcom.sdio.sh).
8. Select "open as text".
9. Then choose the "es note editor" option.
10. You'll see some weird looking writing that is coherent at the top. However, navigate to the very bottom part of the file notes where you'll see "exit 0".
11. Add exactly the following, just above "exit 0"
chmod 0777 /system
chmod 0777 /system/bin
12. Press the back button until you are prompted as to whether or not you want to save the file, select "yes" and save the file.
13. Then repeat steps 3-9.
14. On the top of the notes you should immediately see something that says "#!/system/bin/sh". Place a "1" at the end of that line.
15. Then press back again, twice, to save the file once more.
16. Then repeat steps 3-9.
17. This time remove the "1" you just added.
18. Save the file by backing out again and selecting "yes" when prompted to save it. As said by tommytopdrive: "The reason you do this is because, sometimes it makes a backup and might try to load the backup."
19. Restart your phone.
20. Using ADB, push the "su" file from your computer to your device.
21. ALTERNATIVELY you can copy the unzipped "casio m130 root" folder from your computer to some place on your phone that you won't forget. I put my folder right inside "/sdcard/".
22. Disconnect your phone from your computer.
23. Open ES File Explorer again and go the place where you copied the "casio m130 root" folder to.
24. Open that folder and find "su". For me the filepath was "/sdcard/casio m130 root/su"
25. Long press the file and select copy.
26. Click on the star in the upper left corner again.
27. Select the phone icon with the "/" under it.
28. Find the "system" folder and select it.
29. Now within the "/system/" directory you'll find a folder named "bin", select it.
30. Click the little blue box in the bottom and center of your screen with the blue circle and arrow in it.
31. Click on "su". You should get a confirmation saying the file has been successfully inserted. If you didn't, you did something wrong, check what you wrote from step 11 and make sure it was on the right file.
32. Save the folder by backing out of ES File Explorer.
33. Open ES File Explorer again.
34. Follow steps 3-10.
35. Just above "exit 0" and right below the lines you added during step 11, insert the following two lines, exactly as they are:
chown root.root /system/bin/su
chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
36. Press back twice to save again.
37. Follow steps 13-18.
38. Restart your phone again.
39. Using ADB in the command prompt, verify that the phone has been rooted by finding "su" with the following steps and has "rwsr-sr-x" by it.
38. Press return after each line within the command prompt on your computer:
40. Install superuser.apk and busybox.apk. Find them on the play store if need be. And you should be rooted.
