    Just to start out, I know never i mean NEVER do an OTA update but... my wife didn't want me to root her phone but reciently she changed her mind. I guess within the last 4 days there was an OTA update that makes this method null and void.... i have tried alot of diffrent methods to get around this update but as of yet no luck... when trying to move su over to the systems folder i received and error that said the file / directory didn't exist... but i was trying to create it. Then i mounted the systems folder with the "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system" it allowed me to move the su file and i then chmod'd it ... on restart it still didnt work ... i will keep everone updated on where i am at on breaking the new OTA but any help otherwise would be very much helpfull....

    Thanks Again,

    Assuming you are running on either the zvd or zvh baseband, use this method. It will also install xionia recovery.

    Are you trying to root ZVD or ZVJ with this? It doesn't work on ZVJ.

    Could you possibly link a method to root ZVJ? One that's confirmed to work as of recently, I've noticed some of these threads are somewhat old which makes me a little bit reluctant...

    No, you need to revert to zvd root and then update to zvj. There's more info in the stickies
