Root exploits are often quite a good thing. There are many that only work on certain individual devices. However, there are some that work on a whole bunch of devices. An example of the latter is a root exploit by XDA Recognized Developer Bin4ry that works on a variety of devices. And now we have news of a dangerous, new exploit that works on Exynos 4210- and 4412-based devices.
XDA Forum Member alephzain released the exploit that affects pretty much any device with an Exynos 4412 or 4210 processor. This includes the Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy S III, Meizu MX, and the Galaxy S II, among many others. Here’s how alephzain explains the root method:

We recently gave three devices a home in our forum. Not too long ago, we created a forum for the international Galaxy Note II. Now, it’s time for the US variants. Coming in as the successor to the wildly popular first generation Note, the Note II builds on its predecessor by increasing the screen size and processor speed, while decreasing device thickness slightly to 9.4 mm. Packing a powerful 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, the Note II is certainly no slouch. The fast processor is coupled with 2 GB of RAM, and either 16, 32, or 64 GB of internal storage. The device ships with a modified version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and features extensive Wacom active stylus functionality.

The story of the Meizu MX is an interesting one. Meizu Technology is a Chinese electronics manufacturer, producing a range of products from music players to, now, smartphones. There currently is no official American or European release date for the Meizu MX. Rather, it has been released only in Hong Kong and China. However, we got our hands on one and we took it for a test drive.
There are two variants, the dual-core and the quad-core. The dual-core was released in China on February 1 of this year, and the quad-core came out June 30. However, to complicate things, both variants are called the MX. Though the Samsung Galaxy S III beat Meizu to market, the Meizu MX was the first smartphone based on the Exynos 4412 to be ann. . .

Recently Portal Administrator Will Verduzco showed us how to root and install Ice Cream Sandwich on the dual-core Meizu MX. Meizu recently sent us their new quad-core version—the similarly named Meizu MX M032—and it sports the same Exynos 4412 chip found in the Samsung Galaxy S III. This time, we gave the device to our resident mobile deconstructionist.
In this episode of Unboxing the XDA Way, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler unboxes the Meizu MX all the way down to the circuit board and makes it beg for mercy. Adam runs into a End User License Agreement talking about rooting the device, which he promptly ignores. Adam finds that the exploits that we used last time to gain root hav. . . READ ON »

Thanks to its international reach, XDA TV gets to try and experiment with some very interesting, and sometimes unheard of phones and devices. The dual-core version of the Meizu MX is really only available in China and parts of Europe. Though there is talk of their next quad-core phone coming stateside. Regardless of the Meizu MX’s stateside popularity, there has been some significant development. Some of that development has been covered by XDA Portal Administrator Will Verduzco in this article.
In today’s episode of XDA TV, Will teaches us how to root the Meizu MX and install Ice Cream Sandwich on the device. Will begins by installing Ice Cream Sandwich on the Meizu MX. He then takes us through the p. . . READ ON »

Not too many people around these parts are familiar with the name Meizu. Despite making highly popular flagship devices for the China and Hong Kong markets, they haven’t stirred up too much commotion in other parts of the world. This is unfortunate, however, as their flagship MX and upcoming quad-core MX pack some seriously high end hardware.
Normally their devices don a heavily skinned version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread dubbed “Flyme OS.” Luckily for power users, however, this ICS beta update comes in vanilla flavor instead. Going forward, Carl Pei of Meizu (XDA Forum Member caarl) informs me that Meizu plans on releasing joint updates—one with Flyme, one without—. . . READ ON »
