Default [DISCUSSION][SOLVED] ROOTING G2 Vision T-mobile

What is this thread?
This is where steps will be tried to get root on the device

What should be posted?
Steps to try, steps tried and failed, steps that worked

What should not be posted in this thread?
If your post doesn't have anything to do with root then you may ask in general, we will not help get adb set up or anything else, there are thousands of threads all over the interwebs that tell you how to get adb working and this will not be one of them.


So now that we have devices in hand and we have a few devs on-hand as well we can really get into this.

I will update this post later with tried methods and failed(and why) but for now we have some simple rules.

If you want to test, fine but share any and all details

We do not have someone in charge of root as several that are working don't have devices(myself included) and so we may just post steps, if you try the steps be sure to quote the steps tried and post results of each step(errors especially)

Once root is achieved provide pics and what you did so we can replicate and verify

Anything done on the phone is YOUR fault if you think that what you are trying could cause issues and you are uncomfortable doing the steps provided then stop and ask questions.

Standard disclaimers apply, if your phone is broke then fix it, we will try to be helpful if it was caused by our steps but the end result is if you brick it then it's your fault and we will note it as a step not to try again.

Hope this is helpful the rest will be updated below this later when I have computer to work at

The slides method should work. It works on all newer htc android models so far. we'll just have to wait and see really.

The thing about that is that I own only Macs. Doesn't adb, and odin only work with pc?

I know we won't really see clockwork on the G2, I'm just wishing here. lol

Either way, I just want this to be easy.

odin was for vibrant, adb will run on any OS so long as you know how(put ./ in front and run the command or just make sure that the adb binary is in your path) i plan on trying the adb method tonight, just need a build with root to test with

Hopefully I will be able to test this theory out tomorrow when I receive my device :)
