[GUIDE] **Experimental** New method to root ICS roms (03/12/12)
From the Moderator : This method has Bricked alot of devices and has proved to be inconsistent in its results at the least... and Hard Bricking your device at the Worst. BE careful.... I would recommend more tried and true methods unless you do not mind taking the risks....... Oka1 Moderator
Hello everyone, I was undecided for a few weeks, but now I would like to share this new method (experimental), to get the root on our Galaxy Note, having as a base any stock ics rom. I tried it ONLY with N7000 LP1 and I9220 ZLP1 ics rom, so
I'm pretty sure it will work with all future stock ics rom. I saw this method weeks ago somewhere surfing on the net, but I don't remember where, cause I didn't added bookmark to that page, and I decided to apply it to our beloved SNote....
REMEMBER, this is EXPERIMENTAL method, I will not be liable for any damages that may happen to your device
STARTING BASE MUST BE STOCK ICS UNROOTED DEVICE
Let's start :
1. download this file : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...NW0ySlBiSE1lZw
2. unpack it in your EXTERNAL SD ROOT, in order to have these two files : CWM.zip and SU-Busybox-Installer.zip. This method can't be applied if you don't have external micro SD
3. reboot in stock recovery, select option "2" install from external sd card, select CWM.zip and wait until CWM touch recovery appears
4. now select option "2" install from sd card, then select SU-Busybox-Installer.zip, then reboot
5. FINISH, now your device should be full rooted
Note that with CWM touch recovery YOU WILL NEVER DO OTHER OPERATIONS, like BACKUP OR RESTORE OR SOMETHING ELSE.
The only other thing that I tried is to flash another kernel (best is abyss 3.9 with redpill recovery), then reboot recovery, and ONLY FROM REDPILL do your stuff, like flash a new rom...but I DID IT ONLY FROM LP1 LEAKED ROM, I am not responsible if you do it from another base rom and it doesn't work or brick your device
I REPEAT THAT THIS METHOD IS "HIGH EXPERIMENTAL" AND DON'T TRY TO DO OTHER THINGS THAN THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE
But if for you it worked and you liked it, offer me a coffee for as long as I'm experimenting...
or simply hit "Thanks"...
Thanks to "grgsiocl" and "ferdi90", my first two (and only) beta testers...
From "Harry ti presento Sally" : Nessun uomo può essere amico di una donna che trova attraente: vuole sempre portarsela a letto.
- Allora stai dicendo che un uomo riesce a essere amico solo di una donna che non è attraente?
- No, di norma vuole farsi anche quella!
