Default [Q] How to get root for Omnirom when no recovery mode is available?

Hi there,

I am searching for hours for a solution to my Problem and could not find the trick. Hopefully someone can help me here...
I am trying to get root on my Car Navi which uses Omnirom (4.4.2) issued by its manufacturer. I've read that one simply should flash supersu.zip in recovery mode. The problem is that there is no documentation on how to enter the recovery mode on the device. When flashing new firmware/android, one simply insert a sd card with the new firmware and the flashing process starts automatically on reboot.

Is there another way to get root access for Omnirom kitkat? I've tried Framaroot without luck.

Thanks for any help.
Greets.

Um, Omni does not currently ship preinstalled on any device, and as a result, it's impossible to be running Omni without access to a custom recovery, since you need a custom recovery to install Omni in the first place.

Whatever your navigation system is running, it is NOT Omni, and as a result, this is not the correct place to be posting about issues with your device.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, I just went to omnirom.org and there was a link to this forum.

This is a little bit weird: Omni was not preinstalled but the update(Omni) came directly from the manurfacturer (sntron.com).
In my case no recovery mode is accessible. As I've written in the 1st post, I copied the update on a sd-card and booted from it so that the updated installs automatically.


Attached is a picture of what is installed.
Thanks for any info.

wtf...

This is weird. That would make this device an unofficial kang that not a single member of the Omni team was aware of until now...
