No, commands are not needed. It's just to show the version and howto check if it worked.
This will not work if E5 is installed since you will flash the whole root filesystem.

I appreciate your good work on this. Unfortunately I'm in the US and still stuck on ND8. As a suggestion, since you're going to build this for new ROMs as they come out, could you start adding the last three letters/numbers of the ROM to your tar files?

Thx, already included version build for the E5 .tar uploading right now. The sad part is that the only "useful" way to use the root access right now is to get rid of the camera sounds

But if you need root access to your ND8 I can upload.

If you have easy access to ND8, that would be great. Otherwise I can wait for the newer builds to hit. I'll be upgrading as soon as I can anyway.

i guess not, due to different hardware. although: perhaps it would work, because the hardware is very similar except the cam. depends on the partition layout, and that could be the same...

this is the partition layout of the gear one (with tizen), i guess "our" layout will be very similar...

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jun 3 07:32 boot -> ../../mmcblk0p6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jun 3 07:32 bota0 -> ../../mmcblk0p1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jun 3 07:32 bota1 -> ../../mmcblk0p2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jun 3 07:32 csa -> ../../mmcblk0p4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jun 3 07:32 csc -> ../../mmcblk0p13
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jun 3 07:32 fota -> ../../mmcblk0p11
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jun 3 07:32 module -> ../../mmcblk0p10
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jun 3 07:32 param -> ../../mmcblk0p5
