    I was wondering if there was a way- ANY WAY - to root ZVH baseband without ADB or computer. I will not hace access to my desktop until late June, so can I root my phone without a computer? Thanks in advance (if there is a way)

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but for zvh no there is not. But you can revert to zvd without a computer, root zvd, install xionia and a custom rom without a computer. Root zvd with the gingerbread.apk, download xionia and install with terminal emulator.

    I admit that I have not done this, so correct me if I'm wrong, but in reading over sfhub's guide, you should be able to do this with a terminal emulator, a zip decompression app, and a little Linux savvy. (Click the link above and scroll down to Section B, Note 1).

    You would need to download the optiauto.zip, open the zip file and extract the contents to, let's say the root of the sd card, which is /sdcard.

    Then you would use a terminal emulator to move the files to the proper directories. For example:
    Code:
    adb push copy2tmp /data/local/tmp/
    would become
    Code:
    mv /sdcard/copy2tmp /data/local/tmp/
    For the remaining bits, remember that adb shell is just like being in a terminal emulator session on the device, only with an easy to work keyboard.

    If you are not sure what directory you are currently working in, just enter:
    [BOX="code"]pwd[/BOX]

    I tried gingerbreak i believe there is an app to it.. my friend used it on his and it worked. and i used the terminal it worked. Fair warning if you root Zvd Roms for it are hard to find thta work corrrectly but HydroRom is good with it! hope i helped.

    I understand that Gingerbreak does not work on ZVH. Also, ZVD has several solid ROMs that work great; HydroROM is ZVH only.

    Thanks, I intended on using his guide anyway. I am familiar with linux terminals so i figure this will be a walk in the park :-)
