    We all know that the M100+ Commandos can't be rooted (for now), but does anyone know a way to get ADB to mount and take over as root through USB from a PC.

    adb devices --> shows that the Commando is attached

    adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system --> mount is not allowed;-(

    If we could mount then we could run "adb shell" and do a bunch of "ls" and "cd" to navigate around and find the bloat. Then we could run a series of commands like these ones I ran on my tablet in adb shell on PC and get rid of all the VZ, Slacker, Skype, Gzone crap without needing to root the actual device.

    adb remount
    adb shell rm /system/app/ASTRO_2_5_3-70-foxconn.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/com.anddoes.fancywidget-1.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/com.workpail.inkpad.notepad.notes.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/CruzMarket.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/CruzSync-release-2010-07-10.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/CruzUserGuide.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/DreyeFor*************.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/ebuddy-android-live-20100720.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/facebook-mobile-v1.1.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/MobileSudokuFree.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/Napster-Phone-1544-vmicro.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/OfficeSuite_Full_1.5_282.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/Solitaire_1.12.1.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/Term.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/TwidroydFree344-final-rev1.apk
    adb shell rm /system/app/UerWallpapers.apk
    adb shell sync
    adb reboot

    You'd still need root access on the phone to use adb as root, if you were able to access system files you could just change ro.secure to 0 and gain root on any phone, it would be temporarily since the kernel sets the default.prop (where ro.secure is located) on boot every time, but if we could gain root temporarily then we could get it permanently.

    Check the timestamp. And if somehow you managed to avoid the last three OTA updates, and your software version is M080, you can root your device.

    unfortunately, no. Write Casio and ask them to make the bootloader unlockable next time? I really liked my commando. It was just just lacking in customizations.

    the m130 root thread worked on my M110 version. May possibly work on the M100 firmware as well as long as the file used is writable in that version now as well.

    yes works perfect..
    And I would recommend using a program called Root App Delete (uninstaller)
    you can freeze with out risk and delete when you know all is well..
