    Default Re: Has Any One Rooted Their Bionic Yet?

    Have noticed a few on other boards that have. I've mentioned in other threads I'll probably wait until there is an SBF available to return to stock if need be.

    Classic example of why ... from another board:

    "Default Bionic NFL Mobile Force Close...

    So I got my bionic today (its sweet!) - I rooted the second I got it home, ran the remove bloatware script... I'm not sure if NFL mobile was installed before I ran it or not, but it was not installed after the fact. I went to the market and installed it - Force Close immediately, every time I try to run it. I even rebooted and got the same problem.

    Is this a problem with NFL mobile / Droid / or did I break something?"


    Yeah, the guy did the old "Bull in the china shop" now he may have erased something important within the system files. A return-to-stock would be nice to undo the screw up.

    What if you're just freezing, not deleting? Run into an issue like that, just unfreeeze/defrost and you would be fine, right? Makes no sense to delete stuff IMO. there should be enough onboard memory that it can hang in there as long as I don't have to see that extra crap I'm happy, and if it speeds thing up in some areas bonus...

    Yeah, if rooted I would just use Titanium to freeze/unfreeze. That guy ran a debloat script, written for another phone (albeit similar), and may have porked the system. Not saying that I have not done similar foolish things, but that is why I've learned ... have a way back.

    I'm rooted and everything is fine.

    However, I cannot seem to restore any backups from Titanium Backup. It's showing as having nothing there.

    Probably a silly question, but did you transfer your TitaniumBackups folder over to the new phone?

    I'm using the same SD card with the backups on it but for some reason it's not reading anything in that folder on the Bionic.

    Default Re: Has Any One Rooted Their Bionic Yet?

    New to Android OS, so after reading advice I'm waiting for a restore option as well. I'm comfortable with electronics, build my own computers, comfortable doing a lot of stuff, but still learning Android.

    Can anyone direct me towards a root Wiki/FAQ on Android. Still need some of the terminology and understanding of all of it before I delve in.

    For example, SBF?
    I'd bet Cory's arm on it!

    Talking Re: Has Any One Rooted Their Bionic Yet?

    I rooted my Bionic using the one click Droid 3 method, worked like a charm!

    Installed Titanium Backup. Since I have purchased the pro version I went through freezing stuff - if I froze an app and the phone went wonky I unfroze and left it...


    Using that method, here are the apps I've frozen with no issues:

    I got my phone at 9am this morning and was rooted by 9:15am. This is my 5th rooted Android Device and by far the easiest to Root. I used the one click method.

    LOL, nice list. Your app drawer probably looks like a gymnasium with 4 lonely chairs sitting in the middle of the floor.

    I couldn't find where the article mentioned wireless tether.
    Has anyone been able to use wireless tether, and if so what app?

    I've figured out the problem here...For some reason, the Bionic file system is not seeing pre-existing directories on the sd card. Copying to the pc, formatting the card and copying back to the card does not fix it. If you plug the phone into a pc (mine is Win 7), you actually get two hard drives pop up, the internal and the sd card. For a hack/fix, if you copy whatever directories that you need (like Titanium Backup, LPP, ect, to the root of the internal drive, you backups will be seen and work. The long term problem with this is that the internal hard drive, although 16 gig, only has 8 gig available. If you have 10 to 15 gig of stuff on your card that you need the phone to see/use, you've got a problem.

    Some one smarter than me needs to figure out how to make the phone see the data on the sd card.

    I had the same problem at first. You need to go into the preferences in Titanium and change the location of your backups. The problem is titanium is looking in the "Sd Card" folder but your physical SD card is in the SDext folder. Have it scan the whole phone and then when it finds your backups use current folder.

    Can we flash Clockwork Mod Recovery from the Market (via ROM Manager) after we root?
    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    I rooted and I'm not sure how to boot into recovery. I tried power buton and both volume buttons held down at the same time and got a menu with rwcovery listed on it. Volume for up down but cant figure out how to select recovery.
    Thanks!
    O.k figured out the menu. Volume up moves the curser volume down selects. When i selected recovery it rebooted to the exclamation point.
