Root your device EASILY! [CASUAL] [Linux] [Windows] [Mac]

OP AdamOutler

14th March 2013, 01:09 AM   |  #1  
Ok guys, I've been putting work into CASUAL for Windows and Linux. Mac is still experimental. Here's how this works: I'm comitted to providing an easy way to root your device and you provide me with feedback, positive or negative. All I'm asking for is if it worked or where it failed and what type of computer you're using.

Introduction
This root method should be about the easiest one ever created. You launch the java JAR file and click "Do It". CASUAL will take care of installing drivers, runtimes, providing clear and easy-to-understand instructions. I want this to be easy and if there's something that can be improved, let me know.

Instructions
  1. Click here and make sure Java is up-to-date (not JavaScript that you hear about all the security vulnerabilities, Java).
  2. Download and launch CASUAL
  3. Plug in your device
  4. click "Do It!"
    note: if it asks you to install drivers, you want to do MSM8960.


Download
Download Root AT&T GS3 - CASUAL Revision 515b

http://goo.im/devs/AdamOutler/GS3-Root-ATT-Can






Conclusion
Again, this is a test of CASUAL. I want to improve it. I would like your help in getting feedback to improve the Cross-platform ADB Scripting Unified Android Loader platform. I need to confirm that this works on all operating systems.


Test list:
Crossed off means it was tested.

High Priority OS's
Windows 7 -32 bit
Windows 7 - 64 bit

Windows 8
OSX Lion
OSX Mountain Lion

Debian based Linux 64
Debian based Linux 32

Raspberry Pi running Debian based distributions

Low Priority OS's
Windows XP 32
Windows XP 64
OSX Tiger
OSX Leopard
OSX Snow Leopard

Releases
CASUAL R302b - Initial release
CASUAL R306b - fixed freezing on Linux64, needs retesting on Windows and Mac.
CASUAL R308b - fixed freezing on Windows by reorganizing data collection. This may be an error on Windows Java where reading Error Stream too quickly causes a crash.

If you find a problem, or even find a solution, please let me know. I am subuscribed to this thread.

Yes. It will trip the flash counter. This is part of the Loke daemon on the device and I cannot change that. You can use Triangle Away to remove the counter.

I'm crossing off operating systems which have been tested. As feedback comes in, they will be crossed off or have a note put by them until the next release.

Any plans to incorporate flashing a custom recovery at some point?

Sort of a one-click tool to take from stock to ready to flash a ROM?

Thanks! Crossed off the list!


I should also mention that you don't need to be stock. You can be rooted. The test is complete when you see Chainfire's CFAutoRoot.
