Hey guys Just wanted to give a quick TUT to the Noobs...


THIS IS THE BETA VERSION I DID NOT CREATE IT ALL CREDIT GOES TO TEAM Revolutionary...
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENES TO YOUR PHONE...


1.)Go to http://revolutionary.io/ select your operating system...
2.) once downloaded apply for a beta key (this is needed!!)
3.) Boot into you phone like normal and go to Settings>Applications>Development>And check USB Debugging...Make sure your phone is on charge only.
4.) Extract the downloaded ZIP to a folder (DONT RUN IT FROM THE ZIP) and run the file "revolutionary"
5.) It will ask you for a beta key (you should he gotten from the site) enter it and hit enter.
6.) It will get you S-Off and root.

OPTIONAL FLASH TWRP

1.) Download TWRP from their thread.
2.) Plug in you phone to your pc and make sure you have fastboot drivers and your phone is in fastboot mode
2* to put your phone is fastboot mode remove the battery>put it in and hold down volume down and powerbutton>once in bootloader use the volume rockers to go to fastboot> hit the power button...done!
3.) Once you have your usb plugged in and the .img downloaded open CMD
4.) Navigate to your sdk/tools path not your platform-tools/ (since thats where fastboot is)
5.) (make sure the recovery-twrp-shooter-1.0.0.img is in the sdk/tools/ folder) Type in
Code:
fastboot flash_image recovery recovery-twrp-shooter-1.0.0.img
Your command should look like this

Code:
C:\sdk\tools>fastboot flash recovery C:\Users\abe\Desktop\recovery-twrp-shooter-1.0.0.img
just change
Code:
 C:\Users\abe\Desktop\recovery-twrp-shooter-
1.0.0.img

(drag and drop the file into the cmd window to choose its position and walllah!!)

Rooting Proccess...


1.) Download this file http://goo-inside.me/superuser/su-2....fgh-signed.zip
2.) Put the downloaded file on your sdcard
3.) Boot to TWRP
4.) Hit install a .ZIP
5.) Choose the file and BOOM you got root
Hits thanks if that helped!! PCE GUYS IM GOING TO COOK UP SOME ROMS

If you get error while flashing use this file

I went through the steps and now phone is off and wont turn on. When connected QHSUSB_DLOAD in device manager.

Do we need to have the QHSUSB_DLOAD drivers for this exploit to work?

Thanks ahead of time.

EDIT: Did a battery pull and started over from begining. We now have S-Off!!!!! Failed to install CWM but I will install TWRP

Does Amon Recovery work? If so, can we get instructions for that? If not, instructions for CWM.

Thanks,
Mike

If your phone wont turn on you probably dont have your fastboot drivers installed. Do that first


AS for amon RA recovery that hasent been built for the shooter yet. If you want cmw just keep running the revolutionary application and it will ask if you want it to flash CMW

There are people having trouble flashing CWM with the tool. AFter the tool finishes if you try and run again it says device not supported at this time. I have s-off but cannot flash a recovery.
