Remember to remount back to read-only once you have done:
mount -o remount,ro /dev/(your-system-partition-device) /system
Btw, thanks kyrillos, I am more and more found of this phone: the same gpu of sgs2, the same precessor of s advance, but a smaller screen (which is a plus to me!) with the same resolution of sgs2!
I'll keep an eye on it to replace my galaxy mini pro!
What the phone answers on adb root command?
Please, look into a /default.prop file. Parameter ro.secure should be a 0.
What about a custom counter and a yellow triangle?
upd: Alright guys, it seems we need to patch an adbd binary. Since it ignores ro.secure flag and always starts with a limited permissions.
Just looked it with IDA and there are some interesting pieces of code.
Good news: i have succesfully patched recovery to install unsigned packages. Anyway, initially we gonna use Odin to install a kernel with modified recovery.
After that just apply update.zip from recovery and have fun
Tested on my I9000, and most likely will work on I8160, since recovery binary almost the same for both phones.
