Can i use mobile odin for the latest release to get root ?
I've never used it but it says you need to be rooted first.
Did you try this method to root?
thing is i like stock recovery dont want custom recovery
The world of rooting often necessitates compromises. You'll have to decide what is most important to you.
For example, I'm not interested in rooting until (1) my warranty expires, (2) I can reset the flash count so I don't void my warranty, or (3) I'm convinced -- through discussion in the forums here and elsewhere -- that I should root and forgo my warranty all together.
Since I'm reading about hiccoughs, I see no way to reset the flash counter, and my warranty has not expired, I'm waiting a little longer to root. You'll have to decide your own level of involvement in Project Mayhem.
whats wrong with my recovery? ;P
I would second this. These are my three requirements before I root a phone. As it is, I am already having to return a SGS4 which had some issues. As I was on the phone with tmobile, my one thought was that I was grateful it was under warranty and I did nothing to void the warranty.
I like your Mobile Odin method Shabby Make it happen
mobile odin wont work without root regardless , you can use motochopper to gain root easily enough. why would you need mobile odin if you dont wnat to use a custom recovery though?
i want to get the latest update tho i have root but want to be able to keep it after the update
Can motochopper root the OTA?
lol lemme explain. samsung pushed out a new ota for tmo and sprint, the kernels have the setuid flag on them so you can re-root all you want but so long as you are using the stock MDL kernel, you arent getting root.
at this time if you want the OTA and root you need to have a different kernel flashed.
Do we have another kernel to flash?
yea over on xda there is a source built kernel that is nothing but the setuid stuff removed
