What do we need here - I dumped /dev/stl5 I believe it was (or was it stl12) prior to going to leaf rom. Is that enough? I imagine I could push that back to my phone (undoing leaf rom) and then do the update, and then provide that. Of course, if firehak's brother can update, then that should be what we need, and will save me the time of rolling back! And thanks firehak for the file! Sprint has not yet pushed it to me, not that I could install it anyway!
I had a moment of panic this morning. I've already flashed Leaf, and this morning my phone gets a notice that this was available. It was 5:30am, and in my stupor I thought it was my alarm, so I hit what I thought was snooze, but was actually the "update" button. The phone rebooted and threw me an error and I was afraid I bricked it. I just hit the reboot button and *poof* everything was fine and dandy.
Any tricks on how to stop it from popping up? It's starting to get a bit annoying with how often it tells me to update. Maybe changing "ro.build.version.incremental=ED23" to EF27, along with the other lines that show ED23 in build.prop?
yes editing teh build.prop will stop it.. once i get someone to update and send me stl12 ill make version 3 based on it
I don't mean to repeat myself, but I'll have it soon. I would have had it yesterday but my brother stayed at his friends house for another night. I told him to update so I could dump his phone when he got home, so hopefully it doesn't fail because of a rooted phone. Aside from that, he is completely at stock.
Firehak...let me know if your bros phone failed to update so I can fall back to stock and install the update for shabby. However I've looked at the update and I do not believe being rooted will cause any issues for him.
Will do. He just came home and handed me his phone. I'm currently compressing the stock ED23 rooted dump and will manually apply update.zip once his battery isn't near dead. It might not be necessary to provide this dump too, but it's more or less a "just in case" thing. I know I did a dump of my phone with LeafRom 0.1 already, but I'm not too knowledgeable about how Android works yet. I'd love to learn more about how Shabby does what he does, especially with an older brother who makes a living off reverse-engineering software.
Alright, then I'll be content with just making a tar of /system. I pushed busybox to /data/local before I saw your reply and had it start doing a "tar cvf /mnt/sdcard/dump/dump.tar /system" I'll attempt re-rooting soon, so you should have all your files today
EDIT: Running into problems rooting, maybe KillingMeSoftly got patched out. I can run it, but I can't remount stl12 as /system afterwards. Tried the batch script and manually. Suggestions? Or will a tar of just system be enough?
Glad you were able to get it. I would not be surprised if the update fixed the exploit that let us root.
Shabby - should I go to leaf .2 or just wait for .3. What is your plan for .3? Is it .2 with the update?
