That's right folks... We're gonna need a public mobile section for the N861... got mine early as I'm kind of testing just before it's release... phone won't hit the stores here in Canada for another two weeks or a month but I'm checking things out... The N861 has officially been released for Public Mobile! If you Have the N861 with Public Mobile, welcome! Wanna root and install recovery? Here is the easiest way: http://androidforums.com/warp-seque...ot-unroot-recovery-installer-gui-edition.html Use the c++ tool junkie2100 made for us and make sure you have the DRIVERS installed and follow the instructions on his thread. Here is the harder way(In case the above method fails...): Download the DRIVERS, ADB+Fastboot. CWMT Installer and ROOT installer Steps: 0- Plug your phone in to your computer and transfer the "N861_CWMT.zip and the "SU-Busybox-Installer.zip" to your sd card but switch the USB mode back to "Charge only" after. 0.5- On your phone, make sure "USB debugging" is enabled in the "Settings"->"Developer options" menu. 1- Install the drivers. 2- Extract the contents of the "N861_ADB_FASTBOOT_CWMT.rar" to the root of the main hard drive(c:\). 3- Open a command prompt(cmd) as administartor (right click and "open as administrator") 4- Type "cd c:\android sdk" and hit enter. 5- Type "adb reboot bootloader" and hit enter 6- At this point your computer should ask for a driver. If it doesn't, go into device manager and make sure you have a device called "Android fastboot interface". If you don't and you have a "unknown device", the driver is in the c:\android sdk\ folder. 7- In your command prompt, type "fastboot boot c:\n861cwmt.img" and hit enter. 8- At this point, your phone will boot into Clockworkmod touch recovery but it will not be written to the phone... We're almost done hang in there... 9- Go make a backup in "backup and restore". this backup will be your stock unroted rom. 10- Go to "Install from sd card"->"choose Zip from sdcard", select the N861_CWMT.zip file and confirm. 11- Select "choose zip from sdcard" again, select the "SU-Busybox-Installer.zip" and confirm. Done! Now you have custom recovery, root and a completely unmodified backup of your phone! Custom ROM with no name I'm working on: Once You have CWMT, You can try THIS. Its a deodexed, rooted, tweaked version of our ROM with a very light system and ALL uptatable apps installed as data. This means you don't have unused apks in your system when a new update for an app comes. This also means you are free to unistall and and change apps you don't need or want. But keep in mind that even the launcher is installed as data so if you uninstall it, you don't have a launcher. So install the new launcher before removing the one included in the ROM(If you don't like it). The first boot takes about five minutes. It's only the first boot and it's because of all the data. The first time you use the phone, open the superuser app once. And the mms shortcut on the home screen doesn't work but the mms app is just fine... just make a new shortcut. OC Kernel tst10 from Downthemachine tweaked for Public Mobile. this kermel has a issue with ram and has been suspended for now but if you want to try it, it still wields a 1.8 ghz maximum speed... Useful information: HERE is the stock recovery flashable zip. HERE, (MIRROR) is the stock ICS_PMI_B06 Stock ROM. It installs only on the stock recovery. The Jellybean official update for boost doesn't work properly without the jb partitions but those don't work for us unless you are able to flash the public prl but even then no mms or roaming. If you flashed the jb partitions, HERE are the stock ones for your phone as they are not backed up by CWMT. I'm working on getting Jellybean for us, I want it too.
