What does it do? (For JB).
1) Is flashing these images the only way to convert from Retail.GB to Retail.EU, or is there a better method?
This IS the best method and the reason these were made.
2) I'm pretty familiar with fastboot commands, etc., so I'm comfortable doing it manually. I read something in this thread about 100MB flash increments. But when I look at the FlashAndRoot.bat, I don't see how it is splitting them up into 100MB increments? Was that just an ICS thing? Can I just flash this by ./fastboot flashing the system.img, boot.img, cwm, and then flashing the root.zip?
The fastboot binary is a special one from http://aosp.us/ that's the only way I've got it to work.
3) I see that busybox, su, and superuser.apk are in the Retail.en.EU zip, but in the .bat I don't see any commands actually pushing any of those to the phone. All I see is RAZRiRoot2.zip being pushed to the phone. But RAZRiRoot2.zip doesn't have busybox in it. So how does busybox actually get to the phone?
Make your own ZIP, modify the existing one, push it and change permissions, use a busy box installer, the options are endless.
Hey man i had updated my phone to JB on this way:
RSD LITE 6.1.4 > Installed from my branded ics to Retail sml 20 ICS.
Then i entered CWM and flashed a update package JB.
Fine, my device is now on officia 4.1.2
But i wanna root it, can i unlock my BL and follow your steps to use homemade fastboots, i can flash the homemade fastboot ICS BR 4.1.2? or i need any other thing to proceed, tnx.
Now that SuperSU has been updated to support x86 and our phone, would it be possible to update your fastboot with it, ideally allowing updates of SuperSU?
At the momemt, when using your mod (on JB EU retail), SuperSU gets replaced by SuperUser after every boot, and loses the settings. I have tried an failed miserably to make the changes myself.
I did managed to get SuperSU to stick by reflashing the standard boot.img, rooting, and upgrading to SuperSU; but without your mods, the phone is much lesser. So I went back to it and SuperUser.
what have you gone to? back to ARM i imagine, to be honest except for the battery life and small form factor with decent build quality, i'd prefer to be back on the ARM train. I just hate the yellow screen on the Razr I, every time i put the nexus 7 down and look back at the razr i am amazed just how yellow it is!
EDIT: the superuser from the homemade still overwrites after flashing that new zip. Keen to try that new superuser, just need to find out why this old superuser won't just stay dead. Must be something you set up? that /rooter folder? even that folder is also regenerating. i gave up on it yesterday and stayed with superuser.
