[SCRIPT] ROOT for OLYEM U4 1.4.2/OLYLA U4 0.50.0++ v2
ROOT for OLYEM U4 1.4.2/OLYLA U4 0.50.0 and OTHER SKUS (FUTUREPROOF)
Good news for the community!
Happy to announce that I have just found a way of getting Root on this SBF I believe this also should work for ALL sbf files until this exploit is closed, which I dont think will happen any time soon. Good thing about using 1.0 GingerBreak is that you do not need to worry about changes in scripting, as per the APK being released in 1.1. This method is Guaranteed to work.
A new guide and script below!
Grab the files below, follow the instructions carefully and to the letter of the word.
UPDATE: Removed Busybox as it is not needed and was causing problems for some people. Busybox is already integrated on the atrix so there should be no need for a custom version.
I am not responsible for what this can do to your phone so use carefully.
Due to my lack of knowledge I haven't been able to streamline this whole process but I was able to make it a lot easier for noobs.
Also, it is better if this is done on a FRESH flash of 1.4.2 or whatever else you are using.... so get ready to flash if you want zero problems.
-External SD card**
-Fresh install of OLYEM U4 1.4.2 or OLYLA_U4_0.50.0 - whatever u use.
-Debug Mode Enabled on the phone
-basic knowladge of ADB
**This is due to the usage of the GingerBreak exploit which is technically designed for other phones but when used right, it works with this phone, just that we need to have an external SD card inserted and mounted. This might be fixed in later versions but for now, who cares!
INSTRUCTIONS FOR WINPC:
First you will need to grab the script+files from here: SevenRoot.rar
Prep your phone and installation files. -Insert External SD card
-Make sure it is mounted before doing anything (this is VERY important)
-Enable USB Debugging
-Extract the installation files into your base drive at "C:\SevenRoot" or any other dir without spaces in the name
It is very important that A) If you just flashed, reboot your phone before attempting this.
B) You read the whole guide carefully.
C) Once you have opened the exploited Root prompt through GingerBreak that you DO NOT CLOSE this.. If you did, read at
the bottom of the guide.
P A R T - I -- Prep Script
-Open your command prompt.
-type cd SevenRoot
-Press enter to execute script
Once the script is finished it will tell you are ready to execute GingerBreak on your phone.
Don't close the cmd prompt
-type Adb shell
P A R T - I I - EXPLOIT
With adb open now and type:
cd data/local/tmp ./GingerBreak
The exploit will execute and you will get a long list of messages
You will hear/see that your phone unmounts the SD card.
If you do not have an external SD card inserted this will fail
and your prompt will not move anywhere. >>This part is KEY as you will know if the exploit is working or not<<
After many strange messages like:
"[*] vold: 3620 idx: -0XXXXX"
(should take 2-4 minutes)
GingerBreak will show you this:
[+] You are in luck! Last try succeeded!
and you will be presented with a # symbol instead of the standard $ symbol
This means the exploit has worked and we are ready to finalize root.
P A R T - I I I - ROOT INSTALLATION
Type the following commands line by line into the prompt opened by GingerBreak. >>DO NOT JUST COPY PASTE ALL OF THESE AS IT WON'T WORK<<
Each line is one command so copy paste these in one by one and yes, you must type that 3th command twice.
To finalize everything enter these commands -> The permissions for obvious reasons have to go in that order. You can try to skip right to 6755 but it wont stick therefore just enter these in this order.
