Blackphone Gets Root Access in MORE Than Five Minutes

root blackphone jcase

Security is a rather paramount issue in this day and age where sensitive technology is handed to people who probably should not have it until they are old enough to drive. People are as widely, overtly inappropriate on the Internet as they humanly can be, yet they have the audacity to reach out for web outlets whenever their “stuff” leaks out into the Internet. Then, these same people are the ones who complain that hackers and the government are after them because of all the important (eye of the beholder) text messages that are stored in their devices are gone. After all, nothing screams “national security threat” like a message from your mom asking if you want meatloaf for dinner. Th. . . READ ON »

TriangleAway – Reset Flash Counter Tool

ttt

XDA Recognized Developer Chainfire presents his latest app TriangleAway.  The tool will give you the option to reset your flash counter and remove the yellow triangle by coding the bootloader. Use it only on rooted devices with Android Ice Cream Sandwich as it´s operating system.

Chainfire comment
The flash counter and triangle state had to be stored somewhere. Everybody knew that. Guesses have been made in the past where it could be, and I have personally compared the raw flash disk contents between different amount of custom flashes in the past, unable to find any differences. You can dump and compare the entire /dev/block/mmcblk0 and you won’t find a difference (you’ll find a few unalloca. . . READ ON »

Check Your Root Status With SU Checker

SUChecker

If you’ve ever attempted to root a device prone to difficulties or requiring a trial-and-error type exploit (the Motorola Droid X or T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide, for example) then you know how easily it can go wrong. Sometimes the operation fails and you end up with the superuser app installed but without actual root file system access. A quick search for “lost root” on our forums yields an astonishing 274,000 results. Almost all the visible results link to posts where forum members believe they have lost root access, usually due to updating a ROM or accepting an over-the-air update.

XDA Member android_owl has created an app to help out in these all-too-common situations. SU . . . READ ON »

LY-F1 Tablet Has Been Rooted

LY-F1

Not many people know about the LY-F1 tablet. It’s an off brand tablet available for just over $100 available at PandaWill.

The spunky 1.2GHz tablet isn’t just cheap, but it seems as though there’s actually a small push in the direction of development. XDA Senior Member web_ninja has found a root method, utilizing the legendary SuperOneClick Root method and says that the method is working on a permanent basis. web_ninja has reported this in hopes that it’ll get a few developers interested in porting ClockworkMod Recovery and possibly releasing some ROMs to help the tablet perform up to par with today’s newer and more expensive models.

Additionally, web_ninja has been kind e. . . READ ON »

DroidVPN Helps Android Users Browse Anonymously

unnamed

Some people just need their web to themselves (for whatever reason). For those on Android who crave VPN, a good client can be hard to find.

Well, this is a situation XDA Member DroidVPN is attempting to rectify with their Android app, DroidVPN.

The app provides users with a few features (with more promised from the developer), including:

DroidVPN can unblock ISP restrictions, unblock voip, bypass firewalls, and lets you browse the web anonymously.
DroidVPN is using its own simple and efficient protocol so its not using PPTP or L2TP which is sometimes blocked by your ISP.

The proprietary protocol is pretty cool, especially with the aforementioned problems with PPTP and L2TP which is one of the things that makes . . . READ ON »

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Gets Root

277277-asus-eee-pad-transformer-prime-angle

All hail root!

It was only a matter of time before someone got Superuser on the latest and greatest of the Asus Transformer series and that time is right now.

XDA Recognized Developer jcase has successfully found an exploit that will get your Asus Transformer Prime rooted with Superuser so those lucky enough to be toting one can experience all the greatness of Superuser access.

It’s a pretty standard root process for those who are familiar with non-one click solutions. You download the exploit, push it via ADB, install the Superuser app from the market and, as always, the final step is profit.

You can find the downloads, the full instructions, a nifty how-to video, shout outs and all the other goodies in the . . . READ ON »

Enable GSM Phone Calls on Your HTC Jetstream

htc-jetstream

As they say, the real fun doesn’t start until your device gets root and s-off and that’s certainly the case with the HTC Jetstream. The device got root just a couple days ago and the modders and developers have gone to work making the already great device even greater.

XDA Senior Member Giblet-dono has drawn up a quick tutorial that will give your HTC Jetstream the ability to make and receive phone calls over a 3g GSM network. According to Giblet-dono, all you need to get started is:

3G JetStream
S-Off (get yours from HTCDev soon!)
Root (get yours from DoomLord)

That seems like a very short and easy list of pre-requisites. Based on the instructions, it seems just as easy as editing your build.prop file wh. . . READ ON »

IMG_5952

The incredibly well known and super successful (and possibly super handsome…we don’t know for sure) XDA Recognized Developer DoomLoRD has finally brought that sweet, sweet root goodness to those who have long awaited it on the HTC Jetstream.

The root process is simple enough. Simply download DooMLoRD’s Easy Rooting Toolkit, place it in the root directory of your computer and press play. Here’s the basic instructions as he puts them:

then download the v02 toolkit for JetStream files and extract contents in root directory of ur pc (e.g: c:\ OR d:\)
then just connect device (with my insecure kernel on it) and activate USB debugging…
then execute RUNME.bat
thats it ;)
