Exclamation Revolutionary - zergRush local root 2.2/2.3 [22-10: Samsung/SE update]



Hello!

We would like to announce the public availability of the root exploit we use in Revolutionary, named zergRush.

This local root exploit should be Android-wide, across Froyo (2.2) and Gingerbread (2.3). However, this will not work on Android Honeycomb and up (3.0+).

Simultaneously, we're also releasing source code for this root exploit through our github.

The binary is available from here: zergRush binary.

The exploit source is available here: Revolutionary GitHub.

Usage:

You will need adb shell to execute this exploit. We need shell permissions.
Push the binary onto /data/local/ and execute these commands in a shell:

Code:
$ chmod 755 /data/local/zergRush
$ /data/local/zergRush
The resulting output should look something like this:

Code:
[**] Zerg rush - Android 2.2/2.3 local root
[**] (C) 2011 Revolutionary. All rights reserved.

[**] Parts of code from Gingerbreak, (C) 2010-2011 The Android Exploid Crew.

[+] Rush did it ! It's a GG, man !

*reconnect adb shell*

Code:
# id
uid=0 gid=0
That is all folks!

Update 20-10-2011: zergRush has been updated to include some support for Sony Ericsson phones, updates for Samsung coming soon!
Update 22-10-2011: updates for Samsung phones, get the new download (or build yourself)

Revolutionary 0.4pre4: bravo, bravoc, buzz, liberty, vivo, vivow, saga, mecha, supersonic, view, flyer, pyramid, shooter(_u) and doubleshot supported.

Default Reboot?

It worked in my HTC Chacha. Then I remounted System as rw. And then after a while(about 30 secs), my device reboots.
I tried it twice, after deleting /data/local/tmp/*
Is it normal? My device is S-ON.

Edited: I found it, it is because I modified the system partition, because after reboot it was as before.
Thank you.

I've got something like (if someone might be willing to help):

Zerglings haven't found anything interesting...
