This kernel is only for the single sim Desire 500 - android v4.1.2.
The kernel has the wp_mod.ko included.
What is wp_mod.ko? It's a module that breaks the HTC System Write Protection.
What does it mean? It means that now we have a fully working root for our device.


Instructions:
Quote:

- Download the kernel zip and superuser zip
- Mount system in mounts and storage in CWM
- Flash in recovery the kernel zip
- Flash the superuser zip.




WARNING !
DON'T USE SUPERSU,IT WILL BREAK THE ROOT! USE SUPERUSER !
Fixed in r2


Tested with Root Explorer,Titanium Backup,Viper4android,Xposed,all worked.

please, can you verify if this problem is only mine or is a problem of recovery philz?

if i "restore default" from settings, when reboot into recovery for wipe, it stops.

thanks

Thumbs up
Thank you! It's a good and working kernel. Now would be interesting to start developing the kernel, adding a governor that would allow overclocking the CPU and so on..
