Default Unsecure kernel for LT28i + Root

Hi,

Here is my first try for building an insecure kernel without su su or any other modifications.

6.0.F.0.72 https://hotfile.com/dl/162182111/93e..._Boot.elf.html
6.0.F.0.111 https://hotfile.com/dl/162367993/a96...ecure.elf.html

Thanks to Androxyde for helping me build this kernel.

Xperia ION rooting pack: https://hotfile.com/dl/162186202/75d...oting.zip.html

Here is a batch file for adding su and busybox into the rom.

[Procedure for rooting]
1. Unlock the bootloader.
2. Flash your Xperia ION LT28i with the insecure kernel.
3. Boot the phone and connect with debugging on.
4. Extract the Xperia ION rooting pack and run the batch file.
5. Install the latest version of superuser and busybox from google play.

Anyone get to try this on LT28at yet to see if it works? I am assuming it would since we can flash LT28i firmware onto our phones. The only question would be if it works with LTE or not.

Well since you need an unlocked bootloader it won't work on the lt28at since we can't unlock the bootloaders yet.

yuunanase have you tried making a pre-rooted system image that you can flash with an unlocked bootloader? Would be nice to have that without having to mess with any kernel changes.

This was the very basic guide I followed for the Xperia S but when trying for the ion and for ICS on the Xperia S it gets errors on the mount command:

Quote:
Installed debian/gnome, updated and downloaded pyton and other packages

downloaded ext4 utilites:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1081239
created sin2img.py:
https://github.com/defer/semc-xperia...ter/sin2img.py
created system.sin with flashtool

root@user:/home/user# cd android
root@user:/home/user/android# python ./sin2img.py system.sin system.img
root@user:/home/user/android# mkdir system; mount -t ext4 -o loop system.img system

download Superuser.apk and su from http://androidsu.com/superuser/

root@user:/home/user/android# cp Superuser.apk system/app/
root@user:/home/user/android# cp su system/bin/
root@user:/home/user/android# chmod 644 system/app/Superuser.apk
root@user:/home/user/android# chmod 06755 system/bin/su

root@user:/home/user/android# ./mkuserimg.sh -s system ./system2.img ext4 ./temp 1024M

Nothing here for either. Are you pressing the up volume + lock button by accident? That causes a force restart/reboot if you are.
