    Pre-rooted odin tar

    what makes this different is this is pulled from a phone taht has root already and thus when you flash it, will get root ;). so no kernel involved, i was hoping for it cuz this is a big download :/

    as for how to flash it you ask? well hopefully someone here is a former indulge owner and can work with us ;)


    here is the pit, and a copy of odin, hopefully it works for you guys worst case we gutta find a newer version :p

    open up odin
    make sure re-partition is UNCHECKED
    power your phone off
    press and hold the following Power+DOWN+Home
    press volume up to continue
    you should see downloading
    plug your phone into the computer and you shoudl see a yellow com number appear in teh box, like so


    load the pre-rooted factory into pda slot
    click start!

    once you have it flashed you have root!

    all credit goes to bliss and rangekid15 for the files


    Make sure to double check the checkboxes, if your odin doenst look like the picture then you are prolly wrong

    is it normal to have 2 yellow COM pop up, and how long should it take?

    just to confirm, this flashing process wipes out everything like a factory reset, but with root access included? or is that not the case?

    figured out why i was getting 2 COM

    you have to press Power+DOWN+Home
    you then press up to continue flashing.

    no, this leaves your data intact, all this does is flash system. leaving your stuff alone.. i wanna say the dump isnt complete in that it has easy wifi from metro removed, but its either that or you guys can wait a few more days for root ;)

    and yes two coms are fine, should only take 5-10 mins if it gets stuck (which it prolly will more than once) use a diff cable,m diff usb port pull batteyr retry etc etc... you cannot brick using this :)

    worst case is you have to reboot and flash it again

    just for teh love of god do not repartition, if you do let me know how much you want for your phone cuz its gunna be useless to you

    what exactly is the .pit file? I noticed in the screen shot that a .pit for the indulge was loaded into odin, for the attain do we need to load the pit file into odin that you have given us a link for? It seems the answer would be yes, but just wanted to make sure.

  12. pandibear

    Yes, You will need to download the pit file for the attain which is right on top of the odin link.

    dont forget to thank bliss, without him this would not have been possible.

    just remember if your device is feeling down and unloved, you need to call in teh hit squad ;P

    is there anyway to recover i unchecked re-partition but when i connected the phone it somehow got rechecked

    before i return this phone since i just bought it is there there a way to recover?
  20. Shabbypenguin

    Shabbypenguin Well-Known Member Developer

    at this time there is no way to recover. hence the warnings (2 of them in this thread alone in fact from just me)

    indulge users will remember a similar situation on there

    Thank you all for your hard work on this. I followed the instructions, but forgot to add the .pit file, but all is well and am posting from my rooted attain. I dont have money to donate but if you are interested I have an optimus m that I can donate if you or the other devs on this want I would be more than happy to send it to you. Thanks again for everyones hard work.
