Default [Root] Republic Wireless Motorola Defy XT - Jan 28th update (1_65l_1027)

July 20th 2013
Updated with cyanide2.2, fixing bug that resulted in the su binary being deleted when extracted.


Original Release (bloggers re-source this link): http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/01...1027-or-older/


Republic Wireless pushed a new update today, breaking the previous root I released. Here is a new root, that works on all versions of the firmware to date.

Install the app, run the app, press agree, phone will reboot twice, and then you have root. Then install supersu from the market.

APK : attached
Sourcecode: http://github.com/cunninglogic/Cyanide
Attached Files
File Type: apk Cyanide22.apk - [Click for QR Code] (706.4 KB, 1657 views)
I'm taking a break of an undetermined length. Please don't contact me about exploits

Something important? jcase@cunninglogic.com

I was previously rooted on my Defy XT, and had installed busybox. Now I've updated my phone to RW latest, but you're Cyanide utility doesn't work. I'm not sure if it's perhaps busybox related issue, or some other root required app. All the binaries from before the update have stayed in the system, but something isn't running through correctly, because I'm not getting root, and SuperSU is not being installed. Any ideas?
thanks

Cyanide is made to work on stock, or as stock as possible phones. Alterations surely can break it. Setup adb, get it working with the phone, then PM me.

No, there are no ROM's available. You root it, there is no going "back".
However, good job jcase! I keep your cyanide on the phone, ready to launch it. Still having 30 days warranty thou.

Question tethering

I have the Republic defy XT and would consider rooting if I can then tether my tablet to it while out an about.

I used to have the HTC Hero and rooted with custom ROM and was able to tether my Nexus 7 (wifi version) to it via bluetooth. That gave me internet when away from wifi.

If I root the defy, will I be able to get tether working? Has anyone actually done this? Currently, bluetooth can see and pair with the phone, but won't connect.

Thanks

You do not nned to root the Defy XT to be able to tether. Download and install PDANet for

Install this on phone:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...9tLnBkYW5ldCJd

Install this on tablet:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...QudGFibGV0MiJd

The free version restricts speed and HTTPS.

I'll give it a shot. Thanks very much for the suggestion!

I tried PDANet and didn't have very good luck. I can get basic internet connection for browsing but run into issues with some apps. I installed the paid version and tested to see if this would help and still no go.

I tried Google Maps and it tracked position just fine. I tried the "Layers" feature to add traffic info and had a message that there wasn't a network connection. This message came up with both the free and paid version.

"No Network Connection" came up again with Words with Friends and the Gmail apps. I didn't test further and got the refund from Google Play. I didn't want to keep testing and then not be able to get a refund.

Any other BT tethering suggestions?

thanks
