    As the title says i am working on a One-Click Root for the motorola devour, im doing pretty good but have come across a hurdle i can not figure out myself, im looking for someone that is willing to help me with this and has knowledge in CMD, BATCH coding, the part i am stuck in is as follows, my application executes one prompt after the other, until the part where the adb shell command is executed, by now i figured that the shell must be some kind of stand alone application that is run through the cmd, since i can run every prompt before then, and can run the shell, but once the shell is opened the prompts my application wants it to execute will not carry over. any help is appreciated. If youre willing to help please add me under Timmer1992@wowera.org on msn i will get back to you as soon as possible, optionally email me at Timmer1992@gmail.com
    Thanks

    PS: Credit will be given to those who deserve it

    I have some experiance in CMD and Batch coding. But all you need to do is go look up a list of commands and maybe a youtube video on how to program in Batch. Thats how i learned what i know.

    I rooted my Devour with Universal Androot. Works like a charm. It was easy, and i used my computer to install the apk

    That is very good, I had z4root and it was unsuccessful in rooting my Devour. Now that there is a simpler root maybe we can get a custom rom

    Yeah, a ROM would be nice, but it doesnt seem that anyone too concerned is on board, and why would Cyanogen want to do an outdated phone when he could work on a new version for other phones like the Nexus'?

    I downloaded the .apk file to my computer, then i had to install it to my SD from there since it wouldnt download directly.

    Any of the last 3 versions of "Androot" worked. But its not obsolete due to 2.2.1 patching whatever hole it was using. There's no more dev. support on that app.

    I used Universal Androot and it worked.

    I'm trying to see about applying a ROM to lighten the load on the processor.

    The app still works. Just when 2.2.1 hit the developer stopped supporting the app.

    It's pretty easy to put ADB commands into a batch script anyway. Follow the steps of rooting up to the part where it says "Type ADB shell". Instead, for every command between "ADB shell" and "exit," type "adb shell [command]". This will run the command on the phone without the adb shell constantly running and stopping execution of your script.

    True. But I'm just glad that this app still works for us.
