Smile Archos 101 one-click-root for firmware 2.0.71 using Archangel

Download rar file with apk:

dump.ru/file/5037798
or
depositfiles.com/files/7sh8g638s

rar password: cea69e0419

sha1sum of apk: 80ff2925e12b8d3f2e9c0cabd5b294e6556b2e3f


Archangel one-click-root from the Archaism Team

This will give you temporary or permanent root on your Archos 101 - firmware 2.0.71

Archos are kind enough to provide a SDE firmware which can allow root access,
but involves some significant changes to the system and they say that they will
invalidate your warranty if you install it. This is a bit frightening for new owners.

Archangel solves this with a painless one-click-root which you can uninstall at any time.
It does not use the SDE developer firmware.

This was specifically designed for the Archos 101 with firmware 2.0.71 - it may work on
other Archos devices or firmwares, but has not been tested and is not recommended for them.

If you find this application useful, please donate to those great forums who have given
the android root community so much. Encourage them to keep up their great work. We are
fans of C-Skills Blog, XDA Developers and Modaco Forum.

When installed, this app will use approx 10mb of storage space. Don't run it if you don't
have that much spare.

Usage Instructions:

1) Make sure you have 10mb of space available on the internal storage
2) Make sure you are connected on Wifi
3) Run the Archangel app
4) Click to install SuperUser application
5) Click to get root!
6) Check everything is working correctly, try an app which needs root
7) Once you have root you can tick the "Permanent" root option to always have root.
8) Party Hard!

To turn off root, either just reboot, or turn off permanent root and reboot if you had
enabled it.

To uninstall, just uninstall like any other app. You may also want to use the menu item
to clean up before you uninstall.

You can create a script in /sdcard/sdcard/extraroot.sh and this will be executed as root
whenver you reboot, so you can use this to do any additional root functions you want.

Enjoy!

I think this is a scam "Permanent" root is not possible because the filesystem is a read-only filesystem. But I can be wrong.

I'll download this and try to inspect it.

Well I haven't tried yet, but did a quick analysis on the APK:

Permissions on the APK does not seem to be too fishy:
Storage: modify/delete SD card contents
System tools: view and change WIFI state
and automatically start at boot

APK contains superuser, su and ls binaries.

Default It Works

jsperri: I saw the same as you when I looked at it.

I did install it and it seems to be working. I was able to go su from the terminal and backup an app with Titanium Backup.

I can also confirm that if permanent root is checked this will still work after reboot. When I was looking at the app it looked like it plugged into the launcher process. So perhaps it is just starting just after android is loaded.

Although I have not verified, I suspect that /system is still read only because of squashfs.

What bothers me is first the dates within the apk are 29/2/2008 for all files.

Then the binaries su is a gzipped binary superuser is a gzipped superuser.apk BUT ls is not compressed.

Why do they need ls the ls of the ROM should work fine. I suspect a trojan but i'm not sure. I could be paranoid but a rar with passwords come on......

I agree with extreme caution on files coming from the "wild" (my apologies to archaism1).

Permissions on the APK seems to be reasonably OK.
Like wdl1908 I was also puzzled about the files dates and the presence of ls binary.

Well, I'll run this Archangel beast on a resetted tablet and report here the results with proofs

The ls binary is definitely fishy I reexamined the rar file and the file dates for the readme.txt and the apk are 18/8/2009 whats up with that.......
