The first stept to got root access to our HTC Flyer is to find a method which works. Until the first android phone are many different methods are successful but most off them didn't work for gingerbread.
I will first document all steps I or someone else did. Until know we have nothing but help and ideas are welcome.
After we find a way to become root access, we have to write a tool for everybody and after that the work begins... for all other stuff like custome ROMs
1.1 What others try
Here is a list off unsuccessful attempts until now:
So, no standard, popular tool works...
But can everybody, who check one of the tools above (or something else), send me the log-files which are produced? thx.
PS. I found that different tools with the same name exists (e.g. 1-click), so when you test one of these tools, please can you specify which tool you use, with the version number. Thx.
1.2 Next steps
Okay, I didn't expect that it will be such easy. Next step for me is to read about all this methods in detail and check why they didn't work with the Flyer to find a little hole to get through...
1.3 Use fre3vo tool
After some changes and with the help from agrabren
we got successful temp root rights. Until now we found with this tools the following exploits:
1.4 beta-tests for alpharevX
- HTC EVO view 4G: last version contains exploit
- HTC Flyer WiFi 16GB: exploit at adress 38126600:a00
- HTC Flyer 3G 32GB: exploit ad address 38125e00:1200
The first beta testers got their Flyer S-OFF.
For more information and the current status read the last postings or on the alpharev homepage
if the Flyer is now supported. But don't
use the current verion 0.2pre5, it will not
All thanks go to team TeamWin and team alpharev and not to me!!!
I only document until now the process.
