But if you copy wrong files, or even update binary on purpose in SuperSU gui, you are risking to get bootloop or stuck on ANdroid logo.


There is no way to recover (YET). But im on my way to test something.
So you are warned!

I emailed Gigaset support and asked about the Marshmallow update and they said its not ready yet but would be at some point, I have read on German forums that no one replies when asked about updates.

Getting CM or PacROM for this would be great.

I have a Gigaset Me. When I type the password nothing happens on the phone, but a new window opens on my pc.

Right. Its switches off/on root enabler for adb. Check adb shell command on pc if its ended by"$" is non rooted, by "#" you have adb root. (check video)
here is the part of build.prop regarding this eng menu:
Quote:

# #ifdef GIGASET_EDIT
# /*cesc.xu@swdp.system, 2015/08/20. added. add root mode for release build */
#ifeq ($(TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT),user)
persist.sys.root.enable=none
# /* cesc.xu@swdp.system, 2015/10/29. added. add feature to reserve pictures when doing 'Factory data reset'.*/
sys.root.wipedataless=false
#endif
# #endif /*GIGASET_EDIT*/

So basically this password changes value of persist.sys.root.enable.
By reading of German forums I figured out that Gigaset Me support ended this summer.
If you succeed with adb rooting, I need you to dump for me boot and recovery partitions, to be sure if they are same for Me Pro.
how to dump in adb shell:dd if=dev/block/platform/f9824900.sdhci/by-name/recovery of=sdcard/recovery_original_me.img
dd if=dev/block/platform/f9824900.sdhci/by-name/boot of=sdcard/boot_original_me.img
dd if=dev/block/platform/f9824900.sdhci/by-name/devinfo of=sdcard/devinfo_default_me.img - to check if your device bootloader is unlocked.
dd if=dev/block/platform/f9824900.sdhci/by-name/system of=sdcard/system_me.img - to backup whole system partition.
system, boot, recovery is all can be changed, needs to return to original factory state as new phone in case of warranty case.

Yes, I realise that, I do get a #, I was just pointing out to @imkrl that nothing appears to happen on the phone from looking at the screen, but something does actually happen

After removing from adb and installing SuperSU, SuperSU says its not rooted.

I ll do the dump and upload later.

On the German forums people say that no one from Gigaset replies to messages and that support has been dropped, but that is not official, it is just people's assumptions, when I contacted Gigaset I DID get a reply saying "it will happen automatically", not "we have dropped support", so maybe support has been dropped, maybe not, nothing has been officially said by Gigaset.

But dropped or not getting support for custom ROM like CM of PACrom would be good.

Right, root is only for adb. But advanced users could push some files in device via adb root# and get supersu working too.
But its quite risky, if you made a mistake, then device can no boot to android anymore (ex. bootloop). Then is bricked.
-You cant access partitions from fastboot - is completely factory locked. (even :"fastboot reboot" doesn't work. fastboot don't listen to any command)
-factory recovery not allows to use adb or view files.
Everything points to have custom recovery.
Another thing if you got su working by pushing files, some system files became modified by supersu and with next OTA update, by security check, OTA will fail to update (patch). So you need system partition backup to restore it on demand.
There is one way to hard unbrick to use "edl" mode (QUALCOMM 9008) (switched phone, hold vol-down, connect usb). I have idea how to but I didn't test, cos I don't want to take a risk to erase memory of my working phone.
To avoid all risks, have to flash custom recovery TWRP from android, within you will be able to restore everything and install supersu normal way. What ever you change from recovery: flashing zip's, installing backups or getting bootloops after, you will be able to load custom recovery again and fix from it. Before installing of custom recovery, backing up of recovery, boot and system partitions should be done, also have to check devinfo partition of your device to be insured that bootloader is unlocked, because if bootloader is locked it will ignore not signed recovery or any boot images.
Yes this is all backdoor and hard to do if you are rokkie in this, but 100% working methode. There is no any Kingaroot or other working roots for Gigaset, cos android security of Gigaset is very high, even with 5.1.1 version.
Why I need your files, typos1: recovery, boot and devinfo. To check them if they are same with Me pro, if not to make another custom recovery for me device.
Sure I will try to make rom ports, may be someone else will do it, cos root is found by me after on second day of device usage, while device was one year on market and lost interest of many. Btw custom recovery source was taken from OnePlus2, hardware +- is similar.
