    Default [UPDATE] ZVJ UPDATE.ZIP + rooting instructions

    [BOX="."]NOTICE

    Sfhub has updated his thread to include the modifications added here, so this thread is no longer necessary. I will leave all information up, including the ZVJ update.zip for the community. Please, I direct you to his thread for the root method of ZVJ.

    [How-To] Manual Rooting of LS670ZVH/ZVJ (+ links to root ZVD/ZV9)

    Also, those who feel confident enough, please help test his new automated root tool for either ZVH or ZVJ.

    [Beta] ZVJ rooting automation - please help test[/BOX]

    As no else has yet done this, here we go.

    [BOX="."]
    ATTENTION

    To root the ZVJ Baseband, you MUST start from a rooted version of ZVD or ZVH.
    Nothing else will work as of now.

    [/BOX]
    This file was supplied by eps1lon3 (click his name to go to the post to thank him!) so a HUGE thanks goes out !! I have simply changed the file name so it is ready to flash, and uploaded it to a site that does not need a subscription to download.

    ,

    This will need to be placed on the root of the SD card (not in any folder) prior to flashing via stock recovery as part of the guide linked below. Do not rename or modify.

    The new baseband ZVJ has been released and is a fixed (supposedly) version of the failed ZVH update released last September. It is 2.3.3 Gingerbread, and there is no direct root method. Jstntp (click his name to link to thank him!) has successfully found a backdoor root that was previously used to root ZVH before a direct root method was found.

    Sfhub's thread to root will be used. Follow all directions EXCEPT #4 and follow directions below.

    Note: Please follow all steps from sfhub's thread except #4 which is substituted below. ALL steps are important.

    [How-To] Rooting LS670ZVH (+ links to root ZVD/ZV9)

    Below is the slight modification to root ZVJ, which is simply substituting the new update.zip for the old ZVJ one.

    [BOX="Modified from sfhub's thread"]4) Apply the ZVJ update.zip

    The previous step should have booted you into the VH recovery.

    From the VH recovery

    Press [Vol Dwn] button once to highlight "apply sdcard:update.zip"

    Press the [Menu] button to run the ZVJ updater

    After around 75 seconds (based on class 6 sdcard) it will return to the recovery menu
    If you get a signature error, either you don't have stock recovery (see Step #3) or your ZVJ update.zip download is corrupted.

    At this point you need to press the [Menu] button to continue the rest of the install (write the radio, boot android, recreate dalvik-cache).

    This should take anywhere from 3-5 minutes. Your phone will reboot. When the update is done, you should be booted into Android. You are now running ZVJwith ZVJ Radio.

    [/BOX]

    If anyone feels I have stepped on toes or not given credit where do, let me know and I will either modify or take the thread down.

    Thanks and Credits go to:

    eps1lon3 for providing the much needed ZVJ update.zip
    jstntp for discovering a working root method
    sfhub for the the initial ZVH root method
    scrosler for the mirror on the update.zip
    All of Team Hydro for the enormity of all thier work.
    And of course the Android Central community as a whole, and all its great members.

    Yes! Finally, thank you eps1lon3!

    P.s. What is the difference between backdoor rooting and direct rooting?

    This method requires either rooted zvd OR rooted zvh. If not rooted, please root first.

    This is very important!! The current rooting process for ZVJ requires you to start with rooted ZVD or ZVH first! If you have already upgraded to ZVJ, you need to revert back, obtain root and follow the guide referenced in the OP.

    I'm really not trying to be rude people, but please READ what is right in front of you. It is all laid out in detail.

    No luck. Do you have to have a custom recovery on zvd too? Then update to zvj?

    There is an exact method that must be followed for it to work. You will have to revert and try again.

    Yep, missed step 6. As long as you installed the stock ZVH recovery before you upgraded to ZVJ, you can still perform step 6 and gain root.

    To my knowledge it has not been tested to flash this update with xionia. That does not mean it will not work, but you have to at least turn off signature verification. If your end goal is to root, then simply follow the instructions. It will install stock zvh recovery, update to zvj, root, and then finish with reinstalling xionia.

    BTW I am working on automating the older method as much as possible. Hopefully will have something to test later today.

    If someone has a direct exploit that works on ZVJ let me know as it will be easier overall.

    I would be more then happy if there were an easier way. I only started this thread to simplify this for the community. If you can help out that process, more the power to you !!
