what this means is simple, you can do whatever you want with this software

Instructions are simple, this uses revolutionary's awesome zergrush exploit its just a slightly modified script from my transform-ultra AIO. anyways yall might be wondering why a sprint guy is here giving yall this, well its cuz my good buddy k0nane (the one currently working on removing ciq for yall) asked me to stop by the irc channel last night. we got some of the partitions mapped out and he told me that you guys can use zergRush so here ya have it

set usb debugging on (settings > applications > development > USB debugging)
Install teh drivers
plug in your phone and let teh drivers FULLY INSTALL
extract the entire root zip file (dont just pull what you want out of it, it doesnt work like that)
run the included batch file/sh file depending on your os


linux users i know youve got it handled but for you mac users that dont understand how to do anything more then dump money in apples pockets there is a readme in there




also to make things easier for editing i have included a nice lil script

in shell or terminal use this command

Quote:

# remount rw

it will allow r/w access to /system

enjoy

version 2.0 will flash cwm for ya, just need to figure out a safe way to do it

no adb is finding your phone, otherwise the exploit wouldnt run. its just odd that they arent leaving anything interesting. not sure why its not running the way it should, other people on this forum have said they used zergrush just fine, the reason why i posted this is so that you can have it done via script and have busybox and a remount script thrown in there.

here i had originally posted teh file with my old copy of zergrush, i had since updated teh zip with the latest from revolutionary. i reverted back to the old one try downloading it again and see where that gets ya

I ran it as administrator this time and it looks different, but I still get message about SU not found, even after rebooting phone.

Well, I'm sure I may be doing something wrong.

But I simply set my phone to usb-debugging and plugged in the usb cable.
Then extracted your zipped up folder and then right-click-run-as-administrator on root.bat.
ADB.exe is definitely in the same folder structure as root.bat.
