Hello, I just got this phone last week and non of the exploits are working. You said you installed a dual recovery? How did you do that? And towel root says I'm rooted but root checker says I'm not and all other rooted apps say I'm not. I asked Jcase how come his adb exploit isn't working and he said that he doesn't have the phone but also that it's probably patched. I know probably a lot has changed in the last 2 months so they probably stopped a lot of exploits for this phone.
