    I'm really new to all this and i'm trying too root my E4GT. Its on FI27 and is running ics 4.04. Its never been rooted before. I put it into downloaded mode and ran odin. It went through everything and said "PASS" at the end, but when my phone restarted it is not rooted. I need some help...badly.

    Hey, kind of a noob here and I have a dumb question. I haven't rooted anything since my OG Droid, lol. I just wanted to make sure before I pull the trigger on this, but if I do the preserve user data root with this, will it also preserve things like saved wifi passwords and stuff along with apps and app data? Thanks.

    Just your apps and app data. The system partition is wiped, so all of your settings will be reset.

    Jay,

    If he's using the "nodata" version as mentioned above it will keep anything in either /data or /sdcard. That includes the wi-fi passwords.

    @Yoda,

    Depending on the version you want to go to I wouldn't recommend using the "Nodata" version. While I make them - primarily for people on the same version and needing a restore - they often cause more bad then good as an update solution. Backing up what you need by TB and restoring later usually works out better.

    Hey all,
    I have a Galaxy S3 w/ AT&T, so rooting my phone was no issue,
    HOWEVER, my girlfriend, who wants my help rooting her phone, has Virgin Mobile's Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch variant.
    She is currently fully stock and purchased her phone shortly after Christmas, it came with the FL26 version of ICS, but I haven't found anything around in terms of rooting or getting a custom recovery of her version of the phone.
    I was hoping someone on here could provide some information in terms of whether or not FI27 will work for her, or an earlier FL version might work. I just want a rooted stock version of what she has. I definitely don't want to see a Sprint boot-screen since she has Virgin after getting root, but I don't mind if I end up getting a triangle.
    From what I know, clockworkmod custom recovery has ended bricking some of these devices, so root or not, I can't back up her stock rom to go back to in case her phone gets bricked somehow. This has left me in a pretty vulnerable position, and I'm not sure what I can do. Any info would be appreciated, and may help in my girlfriend removing my balls from the vice she has them in...

    The phone details are as follows:
    Model Number: SPH-D710VMUB
    Android Version: 4.0.4
    Baseband Version: S:D710.10S.FL26
    Kernel Version:
    3.0.15-1135978
    se.infra@SEP-118#3
    SMP PREEMPT Wed Dec 26 13:48:32 KST 2012
    Build Number: IMM76I.FL26
    Hardware Version: D710.10

    Hello, I am getting ready to root my E4GT (SPHD710), just thought I would check in to see if there are any updates to the procedure. There hasn't been any activity on here for a while except a couple questions. I am currently on FL24, any issues going to FI27?. Also I noticed that there are model numbers that have extra characters as compared to mine. All mine has is SPH-D710. Thanks for all the help on here.
