    Did you create the folder yourself? Did you put it in the root of the sd card? It should be there.

    Default Re: How To Root Stock Droid Charge EP4D

    Going to root this phone for a friend tonight and will post my results after.
    Is this installing a custom CWM boot loader or recovery? And if it is (or even if not), can I install OTA's after root?

    Basically, I want to make sure once I root this phone (no custom roms yet) that I give my firend the correct info as far as what to do if prompted with an OTA....

    I have done root and install roms on my LG Optimus and Iconia so I am familiar with the process...

    Thanks!

    Edit: Root worked perfect. Big thanks to OP and TRParky for the excellent instructions. Would like advice on above question about OTA's! Thanks!!!!!
    Current Devices: LG Optimus G (stock) - Acer Iconia A500 (Rooted 3.1)

    I can't seem to boot into CWM recovery mode, everytime I hold down volume up+Home + power it goes to the Android system recovery instead. Any ideas?

    You have to reflash cwm the stock kernel overwrites cwm on boot

    You guys are seriously helpful, you can't get any of this in any iPhone community. Thanks.

    Okay so I finally reflashed CWM, I installed Eclipse v1.4 but I am still averaging close to 283 MB of RAM, should I be concerned if I am on this ROM?

    And it is recommended to use a rear usb port. I guess it provides more power. I have had it only fail once using a front panel usb. Never using rear.

    LOL Its a picture of a house, not an arrow, hence why its called the "Home" button.

    Good info though. Thanks for posting it.

    Does anyone have these files? Including Superuser file. It seems to be gone from Tom's website. He's converted to the Galaxy Nexus.

    I've got Odin and CWM (hopefully a correct version that will work on the Charge.

    looking for Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip

    Thanks in advance for pointing them out to me.

    I don't have the link handy I'm not at my laptop...but if you head over to XDA charge forum, you should find everything you need. They are still pretty active there. I'll try to find the links to what you need in a little while.

    Edit...here is the info as promised.

    This thread has a version of the latest official FP1 ROM for the Charge...there are a couple versions, they are already rooted. There is tons of info that should answer any questions you have. That's one way to go.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1560117

    Or, here is a link to a page with the superuser zip file...

    Major Credit goes to:
    trparky

    I learned how to do this from his website:
    Tom's Android Knowledge Base -- Offline


    Root Stock Droid Charge EP4D:


    First download this tool:

    http://www.toms-world.org/android/do.../MD5+It%21.exe

    It will be used to run an md5 check on the files before they are flashed to your phone.

    Next download this:

    http://www.toms-world.org/android/do...IN3+v.1.82.exe

    MD5: 3D8E8240F2A4F66E63A6622F65C7C909

    This is Odin the *Windows* program used to interact with your phone.

    Next download this:

    http://imnuts.net/rCzxsR

    MD5: 9C41377FDCDB341310BC8C25D0794D6D

    This is CWM your main interface that will be used when loading roms, etc

    <<<<the below line fails>>>>>looks like a fake 404 error

    Finally download this:

    http://www.toms-world.org/android/do...fgh-signed.zip

    MD5: A5D14DC42323A61CAF71549A885AF8C3

    This is the file that you flash to root your phone.

    Run MD5 Tool to make sure all the MD5's match the previous MD5 checksum!
    1. Open the MD5it program
    2. Drag the file into the file box and select MD5it!
    3. Verify that the MD5 created matches the ones above (if they don't re-download)
    4. Repeat for all files

    Now you have all the files downloaded to root your phone. The steps to root stock droid charge are as follows:

    Copy files to SD card
    1. On the home screen select settings
    2. Select USB setting and turn on USB debugging
    3. Plug in your phone to your computer (give it a min to install drivers)
    4. Pull down your top bar and select "Connect storage to PC" button
    5. Create a new folder called Downloads
    6. Drag the Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip file into the Downloads folder that you just created
    7. Hit the "Disconnect from storage PC" button on your phone

    CWM
    8. Turn off your phone
    9. Once the phone is completely off take out the battery
    10. Open Odin then while holding the volume button down plug your phone into the computer
    11. When you get the Yellow triangle with android in it your in download mode, plug battery back in.
    12. On the left under option uncheck Auto Reboot (you and leave F. Reset Time checked)
    13. Once Odin picks up your phone (a yellow com box will show up) click on PDA and browse to the CWM file and select it
    14. Click start (it should be a quick flash)
    15. Once the flash says successful take out battery and unplug phone

    Superuser
    16. Put your battery back in the phone
    17. Hold down volume up and home (button on bottom of phone that has an up arrow) and the power button
    18. Once you see the Samsung logo release the power button but continue to hold down the volume up and home button down
    19. Once your phone has booted into CWM(there will be a banana at the bottom of the screen) arrow down with the volume button and select mounts and storage with the power button
    20. Arrow down to the option that says mount system and use the power button to select it
    21. Arrow down and select go back
    22. Arrow down and select install zip from sdcard
    23. Select choose zip from sdcard
    24. Arrow down and select Downloads
    25. Select the file that says Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip
    26. Arrow down and select Yes - Install Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip
    27. Select Go Back
    28. Select Go Back
    29. Select reboot system now


    Let the phone boot up go the market and install root check it should say youre rooted. Then your all done your phone has root that wasn't so hard was it

    If you still are unsure or run into any problems feel free to send me a pm I would be happy to help you through the process via skype.

    First of all, thanks for the walkthrough ztkryan, it helped a lot.
    secondly, i am having an issue here on my charge.
    i odin up and get into cwm recoverym but when i go to install zip from sd card, it says E:Can't mount /sdcard.
    I tried wiping everything and starting over to no avail.
    If i try to power on my phone it gets stuck on the samsung screen.
    Have any ideas about what can be going on here?

    Too Easy, the link for the CWM doesn't work in IE/Moz. I downloaded from another site and checked.

    Great instructions. Im using this as a streaming device for my Chromecast. Saved me $$$ not needing a smart TV.

    Thank you!
