[GSM + CDMA]Beatsleigher's Root Helper. Getting root access, has never been easier!!!
NOTE: I DO NOT HAVE WINDOWS, AT THE MOMENT! THE DEVELOPEMENT HAS STOPPED TEMPORARILY!! I'M SORRY FOR THIS!
Welcome to the original thread, of Beatsleigher's Root Helper!!
This program is completely free, with no Xtra options for donators...
What this program will do:
Well this program is designed for beginners, and advanced users.
Beginners, can learn, about flashing. And learn, what to do, to get a custom ROM running...
Advanced users & pros, have a few more options, they can flash their ROMs, even some advanced options, like RadioOptions (If you know, what that is).
If you need to setup ADB drivers, then follow the steps, in the ADB -> Help menu!!
List of features:
Several Reboot options,
Unlock bootloader (fastboot)
Relock bootloader (fastboot)
Flash recovery (fastboot)
All-in-one solutions (Some new ones, again ^^)
Using a complete GUI!
Very explicit detailing of what the program is currently doing!
Install drivers - (USB + ADB/fastboot drivers)
List of ROMs/kernels
Install apps, as user apps.
Install apps, as system apps.
Push files, to SD.
Flash stock ROM.
And much, much more!
What's to expect:
In-program E-Mail subscription, to get notified about updates.
User experience program…
This program requires following, to run:
.net framework +Ver. 3.5 (SP1)
.net framework 3.5 Client Profile
.net framework 4.0 Client Profile
Windows Installer ver. 3.1 & 4.5
It uses just over 30 MB of RAM (Excluding the scripts) on average.
CPU usage is at 5% at the moment
If RAM usage goes over 90%, the program WILL shut down... (Not the computer)
ADB is the ONLY background process, used by BRH (The only 3rd party process)
Q:When installing the drivers, why do I need to change my system configuration?
A:You need to configure your machine, to notice the device, but to leave it alone, instead of looking for, and downloading drivers for it. This just confuses the computer, meaning you can't do anything in the bootloader, because Windows Update doesn't yet have the needed drivers...
Q: Why have you gone over to making a GUI? The batch files, were just fine...
A: I'm going over to making a GUI, because it is easier to use, less work. And I have the option, to just, drag & drop a button, write two lines of code, to make the button functional and then it's just a matter of creating the batch file, converting it to an EXE. Easy as pie. Whereas, with the batch files, to create one more option, you have to write 6 lines of code, then the batch file, and then half of the stuff doesn't work properly, because you didn't debug... If you know, what I mean...
Q: Why are there so many files???
A: This program needs so many files, so it can perform different processes/options/tasks
. But it isn't hard, to find out, what file, does which job
Q: Why is there only a version for windows??
A: I am working on a version, for Mac users, but it will take some time. I'm glad to be nearly finished, with the Windows version
Q: I want to donate to you, but you won't allow it. Why?
A: I don't accept any donations, because I only wrote the program to flash files on to your phone... I don't want to take credit for things, that other people did.
Instead of trying to donate to me, donate to chainfire, ChainsDD, and Kousik Dutta; for creating such brilliant recoverys, Apps (like superuser and ROM Manager) and ROMs...
BTW: If you really want to donate (which you won't
), you can send me some albums ^^ I need house music, to work.. And all my songs/albums have been listened dead -.-
Q: Do you mind if I use this program for commercial use, and post videos(tutorials) on Youtube?
A: As long as you DO NOT create mirrors, and let me know, I'm not that fussed... But then please post the link of the video to me, so that I can tell you if I like the way you did it, or not.
Q: When are you gonna stop talking about things, that don't interrest anyone (the FAQ)??
A: Now, but still thx for reading, other good questions will be posted here, aswell...
Many thanks to Kouschik Dutta for creating the recoveries for near-to all Android phones. Yo the man!
And not to forget the awsome app: ROM Manager ^^
Thanks to my good friend Accendare (baddinski), for creating the splashscreen. I appreciate it much
Thanks to Google, for creating the AOSP, for the great developers, to create even greater ROMs, for us!
Also, thanks to Google, for buying Android, and making suh a (rather) bug-free OS!!
If I forgot anyone, please let me know immediatly!!
If you want to flash stock firmware, you will need to install this. This contains all the neccessary files/folders you need:
GSM: to be downloaded, by clicking this...

There are some new and juicy features, that have come in this update. Especially, for those fellow developers
So, give this a try, if you're not too busy ^^ Download here
Before updating, please run this
Fulll release!! Version 126.96.36.199!!
It's an ISO image. I'll provide a link, to power ISO, should you not have an Image-mounting software, on your computer… If you have Windows 8 CP, you do NOT Need this…
Well, I hope, you will enjoy this new version!!
Download: Beatslei9gher's Root Helper_Install_CD Power ISO 5
If you want to see more, download it
The installer will install to your C:\ drive. Some older scripts, are still working with "%homedrive%" so, to make sure, that everything is working, please make sure, that your homedrive is your C:\ drive. Or, if you have a seperate C:\ drive (like me), copy a copy, of the "Beatsleigher_root_helper" folder, to your homedrive. Then it should do the trick. By the tiome, the program is released properly (full) all scripts should be working with "C:\".
Should you have NOT got a C:\ drive, because your homedrive is named differently/you deleted the C:\ partition, see: installation help.
If you have any requestes (features, etc.), please PM me, or send me an E-Mail!!
Befor moaning, that there are not enough ROMs/kernels, remember, since 2.6D ALPHA, you can flash both kernels & ROMs via ADB & fastboot!

Fully compatible with 64x machines. Doesn't use as much RAM, but therefore shows up as a process.
Not much can go wrong, when install9ing this program.
Mostly, the reasons, of failure, to use this program, are due to:
Not having a C:\ drive.
Not copying a copy of the root folder, to hamedrive, if C:\ is not the homedrive, of your windows machine.
Problem: I installed the program, but my homedrive is not C:\. I installed to C:\, but I can't use half of the program.
Well, first of all; sorry, for this. I could of said this earlier... I forgot to edit the scripts, to use ONLY the C:\ drive, so it useshalf the C:\ drive, and half your homedrive. But, that's why I posted this tutorial.
It's quick & easy ^^
Install the program, to your C:\ drive. Close the installer, and re-open it.
Once back in the installer, set the installation path to your homedrive (Where Windows is installed).
Install to that directory, and done
It should now work ^_^
Problem, I don't have a C:\ drive, and the ROM-Full/Less version, isn't available for download... What to do??
This is also no problem!! With a few, simple clicks of your mouse, we will fix this minor problem
Type following key-combination, on your keyboard; START(WIN)+R.
The "Run" prompt should now pop up.
In the RUN prompt, type: "diskmgmt.msc" and it enter.
Once the disk manager pops up, shrink your homedrive(or, if you have unalocated disk space, which is 3GB or more, right click on that)
Shrink your homedrive, about 3GB. If you can, allocate more space, because you will need quite some space, because of stock ROMs/custom ROMs/kernels and backups.
To shrink, right-click on the partition and select "Shrink Volume". Enter this amount, to shrink: 3072 MB, that should be 3GB. Like I said, feel free to allocate more space.
Now you should see a black field. This is unallocated disk space. Right click on this space and select" Create simple partition" Make sure, you create the exact space, you shrunk, other wise, you will have some unallocated space, on your HDD and this can cause problems, if unnoticed.
Name the partition : C:. Wait, for the Diskman. to create the partition (can take up to 5 Minutes, for that amount of space, depending on size of HDD, CPU clock speed and amount of RAM).
Now, just install Beatsleigher's Root Helper to your C:\ drive and again, to your homedrive. Done! You can now use Beatsleigher's Root Helper.
If you should notice any other problems, please let me know, so I can solve them.
Please read the EULA, should you not have, during installation. Or, you are interested in installing the prgram.
There is vital information, in this text document!
Some misc. text
Hmm... I'm at the end of my stream of thoughts...
Now, I'm asking YOU!
Please tell me, what would you like me, to add to this program.
Don't forget, if you like this program, and you are happy, to recommend it. Don't be shy, post your thanks, and a comment or two. Hit the thanks button. Even if you are dissatisfied, just post a comment, and I'll try and do it better.
If you are a junior member, send me a PM, and I'll post it for you
I'll ask again;
I know, I'm not that well known, and I know, I've done mistakes (ROM-Full version)
But, I'm trying to make this program, a better enviroment, for everybody. Please, would you give it at least a try, instead of just ignoring this...
NOTE: Short term for: Beatslleigher's Root Helper: "BRH"!!
To prevent confusion, in future!
Well, I mentioned there will be a working version on Linux, right? Well, I only just found out a few days ago, that you can use wine to emulate Windows... :eek: Well, there you are! It works pretty much fine, but then a agin, there will be a few bugs, so I'll get on to that...
Sorry for not updating this thread, for such a long time... I'm using UBuntu, and I've got quite a lott to do, as the schoolyear is coming to it's end
