    The steps i used to get root.
    1. I followed the tutorial here http://androidforums.com/public-mob.../630553-how-flash-recovery-pmi_n860-warp.html, however i didnot use the data fix as it is probably for PM not I Wireless.
    2. i backed up my apn to my sd card, I also wrote it all down.
    3.i then flashed on the rom i wanted, Halo Jelly 4.3.
    4. checked to see if my apn was correct...it wasnt lol. went to the dialer and dialed ##3282# input my msl code and corrected anything that wasnt correct.
    5.Reboot, if you still dont have data, check your apn again just in case.
    6. my warp had root and Data after the reboot.
    7. my rom was already overclocked when i flashed it to my phone, but it uses a voltage controller from the app market.
    Here is the link to the stock rom. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1GZ0G76P8ataUxGQ1RWWTl1bXM&usp=sharing backup done with twrp, i can do another in cwm if needed.
    CWM Backup... upload is at 19% will be uploaded by tomorrow, but heres the link anyway https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1GZ0G76P8atdzdCdURqTWk1eGc&usp=sharing

    Nice R & D!... the data fix is safe... it wasn't for PMI either.. What it does is give you the ability to make a proper backup with data. If you made a backup of you stock rom, when you restore all data wiped. The data fix is already in Halo Jelly so don't worry about it now but just figured i would specify. I would be curious to see your stock rom. Would you be opposed to posting a link to your partition backup? Use this and just make sure you post a link to a clean backup you made post factory reset(regardless of the situation with the data fix). This could be helpful for everyone with the warp on I-wireless... :) I would make you guys a stock rom with this backup... something everyone needs when they get into these territories... ;)

    Mm you can make one with twrp, but those can only be used with twrp as well... I think. I'm not certain.

    yes the backup can be done with twrp as well...

    @Skinnyjeans21: this is a partition dumper backup... I want his bootloader too... it works with adb through the recovery(TWRP or CWM). Also is the B10 patch part of the Halo Jelly 4.3?

    How full is your sd card? you should get 18 img files some named mmcblk0p... the whole thing is 4 gb(the size of your phones internal storage... once it is done, zip it and upload it... i recomend uploading to 4shared.com... they give you 15gb of online storage

    using the cwm backup in the first post will put you back to stock but will not put your stock recovery or your original splash screen. :)

    the cwm backup in the first post, it will return you to stock kernel... download it and place all the files in a folder with the name of your choice. then place that folder in the "/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/" folder. then you should be able to apply it with your cwm recovery.

    Thread moved to the (Boost Mobile) all-things-root area for you guys (I assume it doesn't belong in the Public Mobile area).

    Thanks!

    Shouldn't there be an i-wireless section...? I mean its a different carrier, neither public nor boost...? :thinking:
