New version 0.7 available!
Now compatible with software version 1.1 !!
Special thanks to Decad3nce for the new framework.jar!
Howdy everyone! It's thecubed / IOMonster again!
This time, I'm back with a MONSTER release
For all those asking "What's a Monster RootPack"? It's simple!
It's a SD card image containing a bootable Clockwork Recovery 18.104.22.168 and a set of .zip files that allow you to root your device and install Google Apps (market, gmail, youtube, etc).
All you have to do is read the instructions-- it explains the rest. Please be sure to read ALL the instructions first before using this utility!
New build environment!
New CWR sizes, rootpack reduced to 128mb image. (We now have 128mb, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, and 8gb images!)
1.1 Rooting and Google Apps support! (thanks D3cad3nc3!)
FIXED: backup/restore from CWM now works correctly!
Well, packages.xml is in /data/system, not /system .. oops.
Release of 128mb bootable Clockwork SD card also
Adds block-1.1.zip and unblock-1.1.zip to block the updates the easy way!
Bugfixes. Lots of 'em.
Fix root.zip and googleapps.zip permissions problems (/data/app and /system/app DO have different owners and permissions)
Bootable CWM base: No change; version bumped to 0.4 just because.
Update to most recent Clockwork Recovery 22.214.171.124 build (should have working backup/restore, and defaults to ext2/ext3 support instead of ext4)
Fixes root.zip and googleapps.zip bugs (can't believe I forgot a semicolon!)
Updates installclockwork.zip to latest Clockwork Recovery build supporting ext2/3
Initial public beta release
This brings me to my final point: this rootpack has been tested on my device, but I'm sure there are still bugs! If you want a time-tested method for rooting your device, stick with AutoNooter for the time being.
BUT! I really need testers! If you'd like to test this, please let me know.
CWR works beautifully booting from SDCard, you sir are the man of the hour I shall email you two internets!
The real credits go to the awesome dudes of ClockworkMod, nemith on IRC, FatTire on IRC, [mbm] on IRC, and a LONG list of other people that I am soon to credit with a rather large section in my instructions
Glad it helps!
EDIT: The zips are only in the rootpack_1gb.tar.gz -- they're actually in the sd image. Clockwork_1gb.tar.gz is just a bootable clockwork, for the people who just want a platform without any additions (and a speedy download! the rootpack is 24mb, whereas the clockwork card is only 8mb)
Most applications on Android play nicely with both landscape and … more
