Da_G...

I have been a big fan of yours for a long time... You had the BEST Windows 6.5 ROMS I ever used and have always done a lot for the community...

I cannot tell you how happy I was to see that you have this phone and are working on it!

Just wanted to sing your praises

Can't wait to see your new stuff!

Flash the pda-recovery-root.tar with Odin using the same instructions as for the Root kernel.

If someone who has not yet rooted could flash this and do the following from adb in recovery after:

Code:
adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/tmp/stock-kernel.img
adb pull /tmp/stock-kernel.img
adb shell rm /tmp/stock-kernel.img
then upload stock-kernel.img that would be good for making a return-to-stock odin image

Thank you for the fantastic work.. Do you have a github or other place we can fetch sources?

I'm guessing flashing this will also hit the counter too? Right...

@FarBeyond: Thanks!

@runandhide05: yep.

Much appreciated, pattmyn

(unfortunately it looks like you pulled p8 which is the kernel, but had already flashed the root kernel, overwriting the bell stock kernel.)

(however, you can get the bell rom by following the same directions but substituting p24 instead of p8. note that it will be much larger!)

F***. I've already got your kernel back installed again, and started debloating the Bell one. Tell ya what, if nobody hops on it by tomorrow evening, I'll nuke and reboot back in and pull the larger ROM file. I've just run out of time tonight and have to get back to working on work related stuff.

Edit: As a funny aside, my counter's gonna be in the double digits at this rate. I REALLY hope I don't have to send this thing back lol

Thanks for the stock TELUS kernel

I've incorporated some of the ramdisk components into my ramdisk for the next version (I used ramdisk from Skyrocket there) - differences are minor.

I'll get an odin-to-stock-TELUS-kernel image up tomorrow!
