Default How to root 2.3.7 ViewSonic viewphone 3

Recently I have purchased viewphone 3 with Android 2.3.7.When I try to install backup pro .It says your device is not rooted.So I tried with gingerbreak,Unlock Root,z4root, UniversalAndroot-1.6.2-beta5,SuperOneClickv2.3.3,Still I was unsucessfull.So I Download superuser.zip and universal_gb_root.zip to Install from sdcard,rebooted my phone.Press power button along volume +_ to recovery mode. I got boot menu

When I move my Volume Up and down , to Select ,Cursor does't move but works fine with android app,It goes FTM MODE.

So I connected usb to pc from command prompt I used "adb reboot recovery",I selected update from sd,Tried to Install universal_gb_root.zip I get Error signature verification failed. but I am able to move the cursor in recovery mode.

I Tried All Methods after googling in the Internet .but device is working fine 100%.Please Help to unlock/root/bootloader also.

2) Download New Android Firmware for viewsonic with rooted.

( after downloading Extract it)

3) Install SUT LR in XP and Connect Mobile to PC.

4) Open SUT LR and Click Next-> Select the firmware.nb0 (options Leave "none" Next--> It will take some time Click -> Finish.

5) It Will automatically reboot the device.

6) Install Root Explorer (download it from 4shared.com)

7) Open and goto system/app

8) click options select the app and delete.( but be careful before deleting ,if some appications are dependence ,It may crash , So Take a backup with root explorer and delete.

If you do so...
you will loss original firmware...(you will not get it back any way..there is no way).
you will not get separate ringtone for sim1 and sim2...


Ok the other way is flash with (xml_v350.zip) some file and
root with superoneclick...
thats it.

Now I have the original firmware and Root access...

Regards,
Sri.

Hi,
First you need to check any updates for your software...
Once it is updated you will have a file with .nb0 extension on your micro SD card.
It is used as a backup or original software.
Then you can go for ROOT your Phone.

You can find the forum how to root and download links are in
Startseite - Mobi-Forum.de
you have to use Google translator to translate it from German to English.


Regards,
SRI.

I been following what SUN-Jack did in the german forum Viewsonic V350T (Viewphone 3) firmware 5057_4_39C with and without rootaccess (no SUT necessary) - Viewsonic - Mobi-Forum.de and it WORKED 100% for me...

this procedure is simple and worked 100% first time for me and finaly got my Viewsonic ViewPhone 3 V350T rooted 100%

BTW Yes Google Translate can help on this mainly German forum, but they been very opened to responding to english post and even better they been posting often in both German and english when they know english users are tracking a thread... great bunch of guys!
happy Camper!

Default Nothing is working for me :-(

Hi,

I have tried everything from above and i seem to be getting error after error. Is it possible to root android 2.3.7. I am hoping it is something small but i am not able to get passed this and it is really driving me mad, pleasehelp!

I really need to sort out my internal memory, it wont allow me move to sd and any app i download it requires superuser or root so you can see i needto get this sorted before i attempt to sor out my internal storage issue.

Thanks,

Aoife.

phone details are as follows:
Viewsonic View phone 3
Android version 2.3.7
Kernal version Apps_2.6.35.11-perf
Build number 5057__39C
