Rooted Kernel for Blaze 4G
Sponsored by k0nane.info. Have you tipped your devs today?

DO NOT CHECK REPARTITION! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Why the big red warning? Far too many people have broken their devices by not following these instructions! Search the forums, or drop by IRC - you'll see plenty of examples.

So, you wanted root? You got root! Samsung devices come with an unlocked bootloader. Thanks to pointers from other members that the T-Mo SGS2 CWM boots (badly), we were able to get some dumps, and prep this easily little package for you. This kernel includes a fully-linked copy of BusyBox 1.19.3, init.d (busybox run-parts) support, and various other niceties. Devs, see here for what the script essentially looks like.

Instructions

  1. Download Odin 1.85 - see section below.
  2. Download the rooted kernel TAR - see section below.
  3. Extract the contents of odin-185.zip.
  4. Run Odin 1.85.exe, and prepare Odin:
    • Check "auto-reboot", and uncheck all other options.
    • Click PDA and select the TAR you downloaded. Click PIT and select the PIT your downloaded.
  5. Put your device into Download Mode:
    • Connect the USB cable to your PC, but NOT your device.
    • Remove the battery.
    • Reinsert the battery.
    • Hold down Volume Up + Volume Down + Power.
  6. You should now be at Download Mode.
  7. Click Start in Odin.

That's it! Your device will autoreboot, and your phone should be working properly again.

Having trouble entering Download Mode? Watch this YouTube video by DrTaru (doktortaru on XDA)!

First of all, thank you for your hard work and time!

I'm just wondering if anything needs to be clicked on when the phone is set on Download Mode?

I have everything setup in Odin but I only get a msg saying:

"<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)"

No activity on the phone. The instructions are clear and I did read them 5 times over , just wondering if anything else needs to be done in Odin.

Thanks again!

Whoo Hoo! So jazzed! I was getting impatient with the dev support for the t769 and was going to return it and hold out for the HTC One S.

Now, with Root and CWM, I might just keep this thing. I have a feeling that XDA will make a section for us and ROM dev will be around the corner!

Whoo Hoo!

Just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. The process described above will give root access while keeping the stock ROM that came with the phone, right? Upgrading to ICS through the installation of new ROMs is a separate process? Thanks for all the work on this!

Just FYI, when you click to upload the PIT, "Re-Partition" will auto select itself again. scared the crap out of me.

Correct, rooted with stock kernel/rom. I got rid of 95% of the bloatware and already notice a difference in snappiness.

Rom support will be soon.
