Nice work, NGD1. Just a few quick helpful hints:

1. At the beginning of the guide, installing the latest drivers should probably be first, since the computer will refuse to recognize the phone without the proper drivers (or at least I've found that to be the case on Windows XP computers).

2. At the end of the guide where you mention un-root, you say to follow steps 16-19, but 16 is the last step

3. I know others have asked Bloodawn (CTMod's creator) if they could mirror his ROM or link to it, and he has asked that they link to the thread instead, because he keeps track of the number of times it's downloaded.

4. Spelling, grammar, blah blah blah.... Just a personal pet-peeve of mine, not really an important point.

But again, good job

if you look in the Rooting and Recovery Section The Drivers is the 2nd / 1st actual step.

16 / 19 has been corrected to 12-16

all the rom links Are linked to the threads, the only direct downloads are in the tool section (not roms)

thank you =]

I havent tried this yet but wanted to say thanks for the info and tons of help. There are a few links you have posted that goe's to minus, they arent available anymore like: tu.root.zip and rom for boost. Are those important or can I do without? I will post on my experience after trying this for the first time ever. I want to get into the tech criteria, I'm planning to get into a school for pc programing and down the road app developer. So I have to say all of you guys inspire me to do so with such knowledge and determination is put in to create such apps!

I had to register just to clear this up.
1. The instructions are confusing
2. By Tu_root file do you mean Tu_root_.zip?
3. SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_x86 installs a bunch of folders on my C:/ drive, what do i do with them?
4. I run Odin, I add TransforUltra.ops and the Open Package button is still grayed out.
5. I have a Transform Ultra from Boost and when i press Vol down + camera + power it just asks me if i want to shut it off or put it in airplane mode.
6. To my knowledge there is no yellow light on my phone, only red and blue.

What the hell do i do?

1. how may i ask are they confusing.

2. yes Tu_Root.zip

3. leave them be.

4. on the middle left you will see a checkbox called one package, uncheck it and re check it, the option will become available.

5. you need to have the device completely off before attempting to go into download mode.

6. the yellow like is on the Odin program.

Nicely done, I have some developer info I've been working on to add if you want? I was gonna post it in a thread but it would probly serve the community better here. basically explains the internal layout of the whole device geared toward future devs.

First, easy man! Give people an opportunity to respond, ok?

Second, here you go. Luckily I had it on my phone, so I uploaded it to Dropbox.

Third, how are you trying to access the minus links? Because they WON'T work from the phone itself.

Cry Can't root this Transform!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the info here. I'm a newb to this specifically but not computer OS and such.

I have been trying for a couple of days to root this Transform Ultra running 2.3.6 -- I understand that it has to be downgraded, then root backed up, then upgraded back to 2.3.6, then root restored.

I've downloaded all the files available (I think). Got Odin transferring fine but every time I go into recovery mode and try to flash a ROM from the SD card I get this:

-- Install /sdcard . . .
E:Can't find misc
Findingupdate poackage...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted.
E:Can't find misc

I Tried to flash Boost_Stock_Rom.zip, CWM_TU.zip, RootSPH-930.zip,
tu_root_.zip, etc., similar results. Error messages have some variations, but always "E:Can't find misc" and it always chokes on "E:signature verification failed".

Would appreciate any guidance or suggestions you experts can offer!

Read the second post to this thread. You don't have to downgrade anything. Just follow those instructions and you'll be able to root your 2.3.6 phone.

The error "E:Can't find misc" is a known bug and doesn't cause any issues aside from displaying the error. So no worries there.

Exclamation Followed the instructions...

Followed the instructions several times. Everything seems to go OK but it's not rooted properly and root-checkers all report no su. Does the su binary have to be acquired separately?

I opened a terminal window and su got me "not found".

Thumbs up Solved! Bad ops file...

My transform is now full of rootly goodness, thanks to all those above who did the actual work!

I had two versions of transformultra.ops, both purporting to be the right one. I had been using the first one, which I now see is 5MB and (of course) never worked.

I had downloaded the second ops file from another source and saw that it was only 170 bytes, thought the d/l failed. I finally tried it with that file today and everything worked like a charm! At least it wasn't me, there was no doubt I was following instructions!

HUGE thanks to the folks listed above who did the work! It was boring as hell trying 30 times with the wrong file but it was a good crash course in how to do it. Could do it in my sleep now.

Can't believe I waited this long to root my phone...

I have MegaTron rom version 6.0.3. How would I update it to the newer version?
Also can somebody tell me if MegaTron comes with an overclocked kernel?

Actually, we've had an OC kernel since 6.0.2, I believe, thanks to Bloodawn's hard work, particularly on CTMod. He was generous enough to allow Chev and Mav include it after a few of us succesfully tested his kernel on whichever build of Megatron came before the kernel got implemented.

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?
