I have root access on 3.5.1. I don't know how I actually was able to keep root. What I did was downgrade to 3.5.0 and rooted. What happen was I forgot to turn off system update and I was away from my phone and when I came back it was upgrading so I tried to turn off phone and boot in recovery and I wiped cache and wipe/data /factory reset but when I restarted the phone it had upgraded anyway. But I still had supersu app installed open it up and checked settings and it worked and I downloaded a root checker app and sure enough I still had root access. But it isn't all good the software is buggy some apps don't work and it doesn't show the app picture it just shows and orange box. but anyway I was able to pull the boot and recovery file from es file explorer and here they are.

Mh, but as i understand you interrupted the update-process? Isn't it more a "buggy" half 3.5 half 3.5.1 state?

I am about to get this phone. So I am guessing I shouldn't update if I want to root?

At the Moment you only can geht root working (without problems) in fireos 3.5.0
Maybe we are able to root fireos 3.6.2 in future, too - but not now.

thanks for uploading your recovery you saved my phone - i killed my recovery before

maybe we can make a use of 'Bump!' when they teach the community how to create recoverys like they have (TWPR recovery with locked bootloader) http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...er-workaround/

I'm looking for the default wallpaper on the phone can you post that for me? I downloaded the image dump but I couldn't locate the wallpaper.
