    Default Re: [HOW TO] Root the LG Revolution

    I know this might not be the best forum for this but I haven't been able to find any other forums that are related...

    I successfully rooted my Revolution using adb shell. I then removed several applications (I was sure I didn't need) using Root App Remover. My phone will now only accept incoming calls, and the touch screen is unresponsive. I tried a hard reset and it didn't change anything. Is there anything I can do? I was looking into flashing a ROM but when I connect the phone to my PC adb shell doesn't see it because it's not set to internet connection by default. I'm not even sure if it's still set to allow debugging since I did the hard reset.

    I guess sometimes we learn the hard way but any help would be appreciated...

    You should still be able to get into recovery, if you flashed it, which from there you can ADB. and you shouldn't have been removing the apps, but instead freezing them with Titanium Backup. Your phone my be lost for good unless you have clockwork installed.

    I didn't install clockwork but is there a command I can use to get into recovery? Losing hope...

    turn the phone off, then hold BOTH the power and the volume down buttons until you get to the recovery screen. From there you should be able to ADB.

    first step would be to ensure your phone is properly found in ADB. just navigate to where ADB is and type adb devices hit enter and reply with what that returns.

    On my phone, trying to think of what to do... technically /data/local/temp/rage isn't a directory and maybe in MAC you can't rename a file when u push it...
    Try this:
    Remove rage from that line that didn't work
    Then
    mv /data/local/temp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage

    maybe by "moving" the file u can rename it...

    I'm not familiar with anything on a Mac, but try rebooting both the phone and your computer, redownloading the package, and giving it another go.

    tried to move it, still same error
    rebooted phone and computer, redownloaded everything ... still same error

    it pushes the file fine when sending it to /data/local/temp
    but will not create the rage folder

    I don't think you're creating a folder, just renaming it, for whatever reason. because if you notice the su line, in finder/explorer/whatever mac calls it these days, the file is just "su". the ./data/local/temp/rage just tells the system to run the file rage inside the folder /data/local/temp.
    After you reboot your phone, I think the files are gone... so you would have to redo it. could be mistaken tho. also, not sure if you redid everything, kinda seems like u did.

    2 thoughts:

    1.
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/
    adb shell
    ./data/local/temp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    exit
    adb push su /system/bin
    adb shell
    chmod 755 /system/bin/su

    2.
    rename rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin on your computer (make a duplicate and rename that) to just rage
    then
    adb push rage /data/local/temp/
    adb shell
    ./data/local/temp/rage
    exit
    adb push su /system/bin
    adb shell
    chmod 755 /system/bin/su

    yep, I'm using the revised procedure

    pushed the rage file to /data/local/temp
    ran adb shell
    when I typed ./data/local/temp/rage ... comes back with an error: not found

    tried renaming the file and I still get the same error

    may just have to find a friend with a windows machine :P

    Default Re: Alternate rooting method that worked for me!

    Quote Originally Posted by Zennmaster View Post

    Just like the original method, get ADB working (I'm using Linux, BTW, so I can't really help with Windows issues).

    Make sure you have "Internet Connection" selected as your USB connection mode, and USB Debugging selected in Menu -> Applications -> Development (as previously discussed, USB debugging will remain greyed out until Internet Connection is selected).

    Grab SU and Rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, linked in the OP, and busybox, which I have attached below.

    Place all three files in a convenient location for pushing with adb (your /[Path-To-SDK]/platform-tools directory would be a great idea)

    From your terminal, type:

    adb push su /data/local/temp
    adb push rageagainsthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
    adb push busybox /data/local/temp


    Now enter adb shell:

    adb shell

    You will now see a "$" prompt.

    Type:

    ./data/local/temp/rage

    Now wait until you get kicked all the way back to your terminal prompt. If you see the "$", don't do anything, just keep waiting! When it's done you'll be all the way out of ADB, which you will now need to restart.

    Get back to the adb shell:

    adb shell

    Now you need to remount your /system directory as read/write, so type:

    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
    cd /system/bin
    cat /data/local/temp/su > su
    cat /data/local/temp/busybox > busybox
    chmod 4755 su
    chmod 4755 busybox


    At this point, you may way to remove the files you put in /data/local/temp:

    (optional)
    rm /data/local/temp/su
    rm /data/local/temp/busybox
    rm /data/local/temp/rage

    Then reboot:

    reboot

    When your phone reboots, go to the market and download Superuser.

    This worked for me, hopefully it will work for you!
    I did this and the part where you said it should kick me all the way back, it said permission denied. Does that mean my phone is not rootable????

    You're going to need to use adb. Don't fret, it's easy and it's always good to learn

    Set up the Android SDK.

    Turn on USB debugging on your phone.

    Download the attached files, and extract them out of their zips. Place them in your SDK/platform-tools folder.

    Open your command line utility (this works on Windows, Linux or Mac) and navigate to the SDK/Platform-tools folder.

    Enter the following, one line at a time:
    Code:
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
    adb shell 
    ./data/local/temp/rage
    exit 
    adb push su /system/bin 
    adb shell 
    chmod 755 /system/bin/su
    You're rooted. Hit the market and install superuser, and busybox

    Everytime somewhere I get permission denied, any help?

    You probably have the recent software update applied. To verify, check under About Phone in the settings menu. Look for SW Version, if it says VS910ZV6, then you have the update and rooting won't work with S1C or ADB at this time.

    The guys over at xda are working on it but to my knowledge there is no root with the update yet. However, there is a downgrade procedure to get you to the ZV4 software. If you're brave, you can try this:

    Me? I'm waiting on a seemingly mythical 2.3 update.

    Is there a step by step instruction for rooting your revolution. I have never done it and when I plug in my phone to my computer it gives me usb device not recognized. I need rooting for dummy's. Im sorry if I seem stupid, I just want to learn.
