Default [MOD][APK+SCRIPT+ZIP] Enable Init.d for Any Phones w/o Need of Custom Kernels!!!

** NOT Android 4.3 compatible!!! Term-init is recommended for now!!!

**Note...this is only for those who do not have init.d support...if you are using custom kernels (cyanogen mod original kernel etc.) that already supports init.d, you shouldn't run this......but if you accidentally ran this, it is ok...won't mess up anything...


v1.0
init.d support through an app!!!

It essentially opens the door to a world of mods only possible through the Init.d process, which in turn is usually only available on custom kernels.
But how?
Concept:
I have recently learnt some linux scripting and was searching for a method to enable init.d scripts support for my phone which has a stock kernel. Inspired by this thread by iridaki, I finally managed to get init.d working in my phone!!! However, I thought of the other users who still do not have a proper custom recovery...how are they gonna flash zip packages? And if it has to be done manually, it requires a lot of typing, changing file permissions etc....a very tedious process...

Therefore, I've decided to come up with a script to automate this process!!! *Drum rolls*...lol

BUT now, with the aid of Androguide.fr (creator of Pimp My ROM), we managed to integrate the script into an app to save the hassle of typing commands in terminal emulator! With just a button click, the commands will be carried out! With just a button click, the app will verify whether is there init.d support or not!


Do I have init.d support?:
Well, here is a way to test:
1. Download the file from here: Attachment 1612958
2. Extract the file, you will get a file named 00test. DO NOT flash!
3. Paste it into /etc/init.d. If there is no init.d folder, most probably you DO NOT have init.d support. However, if you still wanna try, just create the folder named "init.d"
4. Change the permissions of the init.d folder and 00test into rwxrwxrwx.
5. Reboot.
6. If you see a file named Test.log in /data, you have init.d support. If not, you will have to run Uni-init, Term-init or Zip-init.



Features:
- Utilises install-recovery.sh (if your kernel supports that, but of course, but most do...) to enable init.d scripts (busybox run-parts required)
- Will add lines in install-recovery.sh if it already exists (will not replace install-recovery.sh because certain apps such as Link2SD requires that to work), creates it if it doesn't
- Creates the init.d folder with correct permissions
- Adds 2 init.d scripts: one for testing (shows time of execution), another to ensure that the scripts in init.d folder always have the correct permissions
- Adds sysinit in /system/bin, will add the required lines if it already exists
- Deletes duplicate files and lines to ensure the least of errors



Requirements:
- a rooted phone of course...

- busybox with required applets (especially run-parts), if not sure what is this, just install this by Stericson: Link and please reboot after installing before running this script......use "normal install" method, don't use "smart install"...



Instructions:
1. Download the apk.
2. Install the apk like any normal app.
3. Launch the app.
4. The rest are pretty self-explanatory...
5. You can uninstall the app after that...

Screenshots:


**To check whether init.d is really working or not, reboot your phone and navigate to /data...you should find a Test.log in there...If it is present, congrats, you have a WORKING init.d support!

**UPDATE: v3 is out now! Android 4.3 compatible!

**Term-init is also used in Droid Manager!!!**

**Featured in the XDA News Portal: Init.d Support for Any Rooted Phone (Thanks to the_scotsman!)


Hi guys...as stated in the title above, I have created a script to be ran in terminal emulator so that it will enable the support of init.d scripts!!!

**Note...this is only for those who do not have init.d support...if you are using custom kernels (cyanogen mod original kernel etc.) that already supports init.d, you shouldn't run this......but if you accidentally ran this, it is ok...won't mess up anything...

5. Reboot.
6. If you see a file named Test.log in /data, you have init.d support. If not, you will have to run Uni-init, Term-init or Zip-init.



Features:
- Auto checks for required files [v2]
- Utilises install-recovery.sh (if your kernel supports that, but of course, but most do...) to enable init.d scripts (busybox run-parts required)
- Will move install-recovery.sh to install-recovery-2.sh if it already exists and call it from the main install-recovery.sh (will not replace install-recovery.sh because certain apps such as Link2SD requires that to work), creates it if it doesn't [v3]
- If Superuser is using install-recovery.sh, will use install-recovery-2.sh instead [v3]
- Creates the init.d folder with correct permissions
- Adds 2 init.d scripts: one for testing (shows time of execution [v2]), another to ensure that the scripts in init.d folder always have the correct permissions
- Adds sysinit in /system/bin, will add the required lines if it already exists. This is for utilising a similar method to enabling init.d in AOSP ROMs



Requirements:
- a rooted phone of course...

- busybox with required applets (especially run-parts), if not sure what is this, just install this by Stericson: Link and please reboot after installing before running this script......use "normal install" method, don't use "smart install"...

- terminal emulator such as this: Link



Instructions:
1. Download the file.
2. Place it in the root of your sdcard directory.
3. Launch terminal emulator.
4. Type: su
5. Grant SuperUser access if prompted
6. Type: sh /sdcard/term-init.sh
7. The script will run and follow the instructions! As simple as that...

**To check whether init.d is working or not, reboot your phone and navigate to /data...you should find a Test.log in there...If it is present, congrats, you have init.d support!

As Term-init does not work for certain people, I have came up with a CWM flashable zip:


init.d support through CWM!!!

Default Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting:
**CWM might warn something about disable recovery flash when using this mod, it is just a false positive, please DO NOT select yes or else it won't work anymore**

If you have already applied the script but there is no /data/Test.log, please refer the steps below:
1. Check whether have you installed busybox properly, especially run-parts. REBOOT after installing, then only apply this script.
2. If you are using the busybox installer by Stericson, please use "normal installation method", NOT "smart installation method".
3. Check whether are these files present with the correct permissions (please change if the permissions are wrong):
- /system/bin/sysint (rwxr-xr-x) [owner: root (0), group: shell (2000)]
- /system/etc/init.d (rwxrwxrwx) [owner: root (0), group: root (0)]
- /system/etc/init.d/00test (rwxrwxrwx) [owner: root (0), group: root (0)]
-/system/etc/init.d/08setperm (rwxrwxrwx) [owner: root (0), group: root (0)]
- /system/etc/install-recovery.sh (rwxr-xr-x) [owner: root (0), group: root (0)]
- /system/etc/install-recovery-2.sh (rwxr-xr-x) [owner: root (0), group: root (0)] (may or may not be present)
4. Check whether you have run-parts installed. Go to /system/xbin, you should be able to find a fine named "run-parts"
5. Check whether you have these lines in /system/etc/install-recovery.sh (if not, please add them in manually (using Root Explorer or keep the EOL in Unix format...Google about it), remember to leave an EMPTY line at the end of the file)
Code:
 # init.d support
busybox run-parts /system/etc/init.d/
6. If all the above are still not helping, please download this: run-parts.zip and extract it (DO NOT flash it). Place the file named "run-parts" in /system/xbin. Change permissions to rwxrwxrwx, owner to root (o) and group to shell (2000). Reboot and check /data again.
7. Still fails? Check your /init.rc for any lines containing "install-recovery"...if there are none, this method won't work...so use the Script Manager method.
8. Use this as a last resort: Download Script Manager from Play Store: Link. Then navigate to /etc/install-recovery.sh, select it and run as root and at boot (select the skull and gear icon).
9. If all the above are not working, and the "install-recovery" line is present, then please paste the contents of your /etc/install-recovery.sh and /etc/install-recovery-2.sh if present somewhere (like http://pastebin.com and after applying the mod of course) here for me to debug. Take a screenshot of the output after running Term-init and post here, along with your ROM version, android version and name of device.
