yeah Mega has bobz kernel like it's predecessor did. it comes with 9 different governors and the 3 basic i/o schedulers. overclocking to 2.016Ghz and underclocking to 61Mhz. it's not quite as feature rich as some that newer beefier phones use but it'll get you by

That's still true, but no word yet on when the TU community will see it, or what ROM it will be implemented in first, Megatron or CM7. Most of the hold-up has been Mav's own schedule; that pesky thing called "work" and its brother "real life" sure eat a lot of time, eh?

If you still need the tu_root file, I added it to my Dropbox. You can download it by clicking the file name below:

tu_root_.zip

I have the same model, yeah. There are a couple differences because of the different carriers (mine's from Sprint, instead of Boost), but for the most part, it's the same phone.

Thank you, I did it. I've rooted a couple phones before. Mostly GSM phones. I installed the megatron rom. I'm a bit disappointed though.

However, i do have one question. after rooting and before installing the megatron rom, i made a back up of the stock rom. Is there anyway I can restore all my apps & data on to this rom?

you would need to restore your stock ROM with it being Rooted install an app called Titanium backup pro(its free). or any other application backup app.
once the apps are backed up, restore the new Rom, be sure "just to be safe"
boot into recovery and wipe dalvik cache and cache, it will ensure the old ROM aspects wont clash with the new ROM if you didn't care for app data you could restore them without data, but again that's just another way to ensure the old won't mess with the new
and yes im rambling now ha ha another way to get your apps back is to ensure google will restore them once you sign into your Gmail on the device.
it SHOULD begin installing all your old apps by default.

Onced I signed in it didn't start downloading anymore. I actually had to downgrade. I had the HTC Sensation 4G from T-Mobile & one time I did a factory reset it & once I signed in it started downloading all my apps again. But I don't really know how to get it to do that. Any idea?

in the installation guide from the google document you have this extra steps:

12. Select "choose zip from sdcard"

13. Locate (NewCWM.zip) from where you saved it on your SD card.

14. Select "yes"

Where can I download the newcwm? Is it needed?

My Transform has been running VERY slowly at times. It started around the time I rooted it and was wondering if there might be a connection. I have reboot app and a hot reboot seems to restore the thing for a day or so, then it gets all sludgy again.

I have never had a linux PC that behaved this way. It's like a cache is getting clogged up or confused...

thanks for any suggestions...new to rooting in general...

Rooting just gives you access to the phone's system directories that would normally not be accessible. If you installed a bad app and gave it root permissions then sure this would be possible but otherwise it has nothing at all to do with your problem.

OK I think I've been a little lost here in the forums!! Is this supposed to be a guide for everything root about the TU?? Cause I can't find any of the info I'm looking for!! I believe all my questions pertain to root because I didn't know the options were accessable till I was rooted!!

Anyway I toy with all kinds of settings all the time Like right now my 3g symbol and wifi symbol are at the top of my screen and have been for a while now!! An info app says my apns are screwed up!! I havent been able to access my mobile data(3g lites up and Widgets load but no apps or browser) I'm lucky to have wifi wherever I go usually!!

On to the questions 1. Why does this phone have so many different radio settings including duel GSM/CDMA?? 2.I found a link that promotes simcards for our phones!! I posted it in the megatron forum cause that's the rom I use!! How could that be if it only gets CDMA service?? 3.why does my gsm say its active?? 4.what cool stuff can we do with the dial up settings?? And last for now. With ct mod I had access to the native sprint hotspot and usb tethering!! Now with megatron I don't!! Can I fix that?? I really would like to get my native usb tether at least!! Thanx for the help you guys!!! I like this little phone and I wanna maximize it to its highest potential!!!

Default TU owner stuck, needing help.

Please Help. I have a TU since they first came out with 2.3.3. I rooted it via ACS OneClickRoot and had it rooted. Great! Added Avast mobile security with root access. All good.

By the way thanks for all the good work you've done!

Then came the update! I updated and figured I'd just go back and root again with the same program. Nada! All files are there, but can't change them. With ACS i get to Blue Flames part then after that it says can't mount and everything fails from there on.

So I tried this method here. Odin CWM onto my phone. Problem is Odin never does any thing. I push start and timer starts and just runs and runs and runs. Odin does see phone, cause is says added and detected and I get a com port. I push start in Odin and it says

Download start....
0 create file
1 startthread detected: 1
2 startthread detected: 0
(3 thru 7 duplicate statement)
8 startthread detected: 0
1 setup connection........
and timer just runs

The phone says
wait for usb_read

I plug it in and press start on Odin
odin: samsung
odin_ack : Mits
wait for usb_read

and nothing i let sit for an hour and a half and still nothing

I say loota video and saw how it went quickly and the green bar moved across the time readout slot. I get no green bar or anything.

I boot into recovery mode and I don't get the option to back up I get Android Sys Recovery with: reboot sys, apply update from sdcard, wipe data/factory reset, and wipe cache partition.

I have uninstalled everything needing root access via manage applications.

I've downloaded the same files several times to make sure no corruption.

I've scoured all things rooted.

Can anyone help? Is there and alternative method to push CWM onto my phone?

Thanks

i would recommend switching usb ports. dont use the usb hub but the main port. also make sure you have sdk tools installed and after install go to system--advanced--environment variables and add a path to both sdk.exe and adb.exe. update windows on the microsoft site. reboot phone and pc. odin-uncheck reboot timer and debug only. choose the ops file and the tar file. good luck. remember if it completes you will need to pull battery and boot to recovery to flash root.zip before booting phone normally.

I'm in environment variables, but I don't know how to add a path to sdk or adb. I've never used this screen. Should it be in User or System Variable. I see "ComSpec" is "c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe" like a windows shortcut, would it be variable "sdk" value "C:\folder sdk.exe in\sdk.exe" ?

if yoo check in system variables you will see "PATH" click that and click edit. at the end of the one your computer already had type a semicolon, then no space, then your new path. an example woiuld be c:\my documents\androidsdk\sdk.exe;c:\my documents\androidsdk\platformtools\adb.exe

Exactly right.

EDIT: also, make sure you have the latest drivers installed for the phone from samsungmobile.com.

Well, it depends on what you're wanting out of your phone. CTMod is a solid ROM in its own right, it just hasn't had many themes created for it. If you do go with Megatron, though, there is an update coming out for it very soon.

Sorry for the late reply; I work a late shift, and my reply to your question will take more than a minute or two.

I recommend first making a backup of your phone as-is, then flash either CTMod, or the current Megatron, make a backup of that, then flash the other, to see which one you like better. Regardless of which you stick with, you can always flash the Megatron update when it comes out, as it sounds like it will be a full ROM, and not just a patch.

As for goodies, there are plenty of themes for Megatron, including my own Red-n-Black (which I'll be porting to CTMod, as well). I also have flashable baseband updates, and am working on a theming guide if you'd like to try your hand at making your own.

I'm having the same type of issue with "please connect phones !!". I installed the latest driver from samsung's website, but no avail (or yellow light inside odin). Windows makes the sound when i connected my phone. Running win 8 x64. Am able to connect to my phone and browse with no issues inside of windows.


EDIT - Figured it out:

Download the 1.5.16.0 Drivers. If it is an exe, rename it to a .rar. Then, open the file in 7zip or winrar, and extract the files. Once you reboot your device and it shows "downloading": plug in and go back to your computer. You will have to open device manager, and find your phone device that has an exclamation point next to it. Double click it, goto update driver, then browse to the folder where you unrared the packaged and allow it to install the new drivers. Repeat this step twice.

Thanks. Some of us are still a little behind the technology curve with our PCs (running WinXP with no chance for an upgrade in sight for many months to come). I had the feeling Microsoft jumped the gun on 8's release, and here's one good example to justify it.

Default transform ultra root problems

i downloaded the tu-root.zip from your link, put it on my sd card, ran odin with the .ops and the .TAR from your links, all good up to one point, when i got back into recovery mode after unplugging the usb (so it wouldnt reboot automatically) triedto run tu_root.zip in recovery mode and it read:
opening update package...
verifying update package....
E: signature verifcation failed
Installation aborted.
E: Cant find misc

im pretty new to all of this...any minor details or help is greatly appreciated...
my transform runs gingerbread.FF27

FYI! TU_Root_Mod_Kit.zip is not at the link provided. All I found was a empty folder & a untitled doc that says jkjk..
