I am sorry for not replying sooner..

Mr hater of silent messages summed it up pretty well. I will add these tips as well.

When the script begins it you will see errors/missing/unable to mount etc.
Ignore these..also when the script hangs up for about ten seconds it is rebooting the phone so be patient and allow phone to reboot until it tells you that you can close the script.

In addition I will add that if you ever go into your stock recovery you will loose root and will have to re-root your phone. So keep the root files handy. I had to do this all by trial and error bit I'm glad that there are others who are proactive on posting their errors and efforts and will add anything I can WHEN I can.

Thanks is a lot dallardagreat! I tried your advice with supersu. I had no idea I could do that with supersu. Made me nervouse having use root apps without prompt.

You rock!

Now we need a recovery and some way to flash stock to correct "errors" or should I say r&d?

Thanks! But to much steps .-. I'll just wait for a tool like Kingo Root. I'll be honest. I'm that type of lazy person /.\

But once the tool comes out I'll see if me and a team I have can create CM11 for it cuz I hate the Scheme/Theme/OS the Icon has. I guess I'm too use to AOSP Roms CX. But I'll wait. Let me know when there's a tool for the Icon guys! Thanks

Lightbulb response and collaboration

It is lot easier then you think man, but I will keep you in mind if and when something like that comes about.


Everyone else... I'm not new to rooting phones this is my sixth one with help of others...if someone knows what the next step is to get closer to a recovery tool I will help if needed. Seems like this phone is too new and I'm not even sure of they have locked bootloaders...

Let's all give what we know so we can start helping each other and others get this where it'd more manageable for development.

Who is in?

What do we need?

What do we need to do to help?

Once U Make It A System App, Press Re-authentication, (Even If Its Check Already) Check It, Uncheck It, Then Recheck It, Reboot The Phone And It Should Work Now.
