    Default How to root without being root?

    Hi,

    I'm trying the OS-X + Heimdall method to flash my I9300.
    Everything goes well until the ClockworkMod recovery.
    So I'm need to get rid of /system/ect/install-recovery.sh and /system/recovery-from-boot.p
    but all apps to do so... require root privileges (...).
    As I didn't like to give up, I tried...
    • Root Explorer
    • Explorer
    • ES File Explorer
    • Files
    • Total Commander
    • ROM Manager
    ...but none of those got me rid of those two files...

    Does anyone have some advice on how to tackle this?

    At the Sprint guide I noticed the TeamEpic-Root-from-Recovery-v5.zip, that deals with this problem, but I strongly doubt I could use that part on a I9300, right?
