Phone will reboot, and you will be rooted as soon as device is fully booted.
Uninstalling the app will disable root until reinstalled
supersu is not able to update su yet, this will be fixed in an update shortly.
su is maintained in a ext4 img at /data/xbin.img and mounted over /system/xbin at BOOT_COMPLETE.
su is not available for the first few seconds of boot, im working on this.
/system is write protected, even with unlocked bootloaders you can not write to it while booted in Android.
Two choices, factory reset, or press the unroot menu option in the app.
Run into a problem? try hittung unroot then re-rooting
We use two vulns in this app, first being 9695860 to gain system user, then a symlink attack of mine to get root from system.
xIndirect (nick) for assisting me from start to finish
Whoever originally found bug 9695860
Saurik for his description of 9695860
Ryan Welton for his 9695860 tool
Dave Kover for yet another kick butt icon
and Anthony Fox/Droid-Hive for great help with getting the device to me today
firist off thank you for all your hard work
i do have a question dose this mean we can not install apps on the system/app folder?
and dose this mean files cant be pushed with adb as a work around?
No messing with system/app yet, just system/xbin. Will be addressing the rest of it soon, I just got my phone today. Been talking with HashCode and DBHacker about getting custom roms going, it is being looked at now.
adb works fine, su just doesnt get remounted until the BOOT_COMPLETE broadcast is sent, it means poorly written apps that does retry a root command with a delay, MIGHT fail to get root at boot. They should retry. I will be addressing this, soon.
Like I said, just got the phone about 7 hours ago.
