Ive been using z4root 1.3.0.apk with epic 4g stock eclair 2.1 with no problems (I use z4root to temporarily root my phone to have access to wifi tether). However, I updated my phone to stock Froyo EB13 (clean install) and now I'm having issues getting z4root to work: it loads, and says acquiring root shell but then the app closes out. If i try to reopen it, it will force-close/crash and the phone starts vibrating intermittently.


Is z4root not compatible with 2.2 froyo or am I just not doing something right? Is anyone using z4root with EB13 2.2 with no issues?

I'm having the same issue. I just wiped my phone clean to re-try running z4root. Will let know if it works or not.

UPDATE:

Tried again after wiping phone clean and still have the same issues. Have no idea what is going on.

You are correct, eclair 2.1 works with z4root 1.3.0 - it does not work with froyo EB13, I had to use one-click-root - been there done that :-(

Its really a bummer, I really liked z4root :-(
