    IF I need to send in my phone for warranty work and it is currently rooted ETC..I can use this to unroot/stock and it will be ok?

    Thanks!
     
  7. it says that its unrooted now, but it still has the megatron rom, i thought this would return it to stock, how do i do this? i am a newbie at this, exhusband rooted and changed the rom and the phone has had tons of issues since, no ringing with incoming calls, sd card suddenly removing itself, i thought going back to stock/unrooted might fix this, can someone advise me please? thank you very much in advance, my ex is offering no help at all

    Thank goodness for this forum. I read the old one
    http://androidforums.com/transform-...wm-new-clockworkmod-fixed-no-2min-reboot.html

    then ran across this one. I am really bad at these phones, my old one was a dinosaur. Okay you will laugh but i didn't even know how to answer it! Kept hitting the green phone but nothing come to find out i had to swipe! learning new things.

    I searched for how to save battery life. I had 73% battery. Followed this instructions on how to turn everything off and battery life went up to 97%!! that cant be write. So i turned everything back on. I will try this, maybe, still nervous only had phone for 4 days now..

    --Help please--

    I downloaded TransformUltraEasyRoot-Unroot.
    Opened Odin Multi DL v4.43 and I pull the COM address.
    I selected C:\Users\owner\Desktop\TransformUltraEasyRoot-Unroot\TransformUltra.ops.

    --Now here's the rub. My "One Package" button is grayed out (unclickable) so I can't assign the root-boot.tar.
    Does anybody have a clue where I should start looking?
    Driver - SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_x86 v.1.3.450.0

    I followed the steps 1-1 and 1-2. When Odin was finished the box above the COM port said PASS with a blue background. I then ran Root--Unroot.bat, selected (1)Root and (y)Continue. The screen then quickly flashed the red "Rooting" text and then showed the green "Done" text. I still don't seem to have root access on my device. Is anyone familiar with this issue?

    Put root_unroot.bat in the folder root & try running it from there. I think that's how I did it.

    The Root--Unroot.bat file is currently located in the TransformUltraEasyRoot/Root-Unroot folder. I have tried running it in the TransformUltraEasyRoot folder as well as the TransformUltraEasyRoot/Root-Unroot/R folder. None of these seem to work. I noticed a text document in the TransformUltraEasyRoot folder labeled as Root--Unroot. When I open this text document it reads:

    This should work.. ;)

    1. Copy \TransformUltraEasyRoot-Unroot\Root--UnRoot\adb.exe

    2. Paste it \TransformUltraEasyRoot-Unroot\Root--UnRoot\R\adb.exe

    3. Run \TransformUltraEasyRoot-Unroot\Root--UnRoot\Root--UnRoot.bat

    I think adb.exe is in the wrong place, or should I say the batch file is calling it from the wrong directory.
    Let me know if it works. :)

    JIWebby: Thank you for the help. I ended up having to copy the "adb", "AdpWinApi.dll", and "AdpWinUsbApi.dll" to the R folder.

    Thank you to JIWebby and oamilcar.

    My current issue is now having SU access granted to specific apps. I imagine this is a question for another thread, but if anyone might be able to help me I would appreciate it.

    Once you are rooted Superuser will be installed.
    Now, when a app requests su you will receive a pop-up from Superuser app asking if you want to allow or deny su for the app.

    My Transform Ultra used to be rooted in the previous OS, so I am familiar with the Toast pop up notification that appears so you can grant root access. However this doesn't appear for any apps other than Superuser. Even in the Superuser log it shows its the only app with Allow and everything else is still Denied. I clicked to update the binary and a pop up wil say Superuser has been granted Superuser permissions, but the update will say it failed to get root access. I have tried clearing the superuser app data and uninstalling superuser updates, but nothing has worked yet.

    I had that happened to me back in the day when I had tried rooting my Samsung Galaxy Prevail. It installed Superuser but my apps didn't have root access. It didn't root.

    I updated my pc samsung drivers, then I had to return to stock & try again.
    It rooted the second time.

    I updated the drivers from the Samsun website. Did not need to return to stock. I jus repeated the steps above and I can now grant Superuser permission to apps. Thank you for all of the help. I hope this also helps anyone else who may encounter the same issue.
