    Default Need help on sunshine s-off

    I just installed and ran sunshine on my phone. I'm now unlocked and s-off. I think I'm temp root because that's what it made me choose in the beginning of the unlocking process.

    What are the next steps that I should do? I wanna install twrp and I tried installing it from the play store and it won't let me open the app because it says I'm not rooted.

    I never did sunshine, or installed twrp from the play store. Do have knowledge of fastboot and adb?

    I do not. All I know is I'm unlocked (whatever that means) and I have s-off

    So what are you trying to accomplish? I used s-off so I can flash firmware. I unlocked the bootloader so I can root. I root so I can use utilities that aren't available otherwise.

    In my opinion, if you don't really know what your doing it for, the next step would be to just leave the rest alone.

    I read a few links and I succesfuly rooted my phone.
    Some things just confused me when I was reading threads about rooting. I always thought you needed to root first to get s-off and then unlock. I stumbled on a thread that explained everything perfectly. Thanks for replying

    I never cease to be amazed at how anxious people are to flash stuff on a 700 dollar device when they have no clue of what they are doing or even why they are doing it..

    Demanding? Lol. I never demanded anyone of anything. I was simply asking for help. If no one replied then I would look for help somewhere else. If you can't say anything that would be of help then please get off my thread. Thanks.

    Same goes for you. I wanted to root because I have a reason to. Since you are of no help I don't need to tell you why. Also, it's my phone and I'll do whatever I wanna do with it. If I brick it then that's on me and I won't place the blame on anyone else.

    I couldn't care less why you want to root..some one who says "I'm unlocked, whatever that means", and then cops an attitude when others chime in, won't get any help here or on any other phone enthusiast forums..good luck when you brick that thing..

    I wasn't giving attitude. I don't need useless posts in my thread. I simply asked you to leave my thread if you can't say anything helpful. And as I've said in my earlier post; if I brick my phone that's on me and I won't blame ANYONE else

    If you still need help come to our sunshine support chat or email us.

    Ignore these people talking about having no idea what you are doing, I could probably throw the same comments right at them, likely to a higher degree. We all have to start somewhere, few years back beaups and I were completely "noob" to Android as well.

    Some on here may frown upon it, but I used Rom Manager from the Play Store and used it to install ClockworkMod bootloader, which gave me an option to root my device (perma-root). I loaded a ROM that comes with root access so it wasn't an issue for me, but it was a nice feature for them to add.

    Sunshine worked beautifully for me when firewater didn't. Fantastic app.

    Also please ignore those that would criticize anyone for not knowing what they're doing. I've learned everything I know from not knowing what I'm doing and figuring it out, and I work in IT. Making mistakes can be the greatest teacher. Obviously you'll want to avoid them in this case - you don't want to brick your phone - but everyone starts with zero knowledge in any field they're in. No one is born knowing how to add, subtract, multiply or divide, yet we learn these things in life. This is the same.

    If you have any questions feel free to reach out to the Sunshine team or XDA or members here. Most of the people you'll find are friendly and want to help.
