To start off I want to say, I am NOT claiming to have created this exploit, I am merely letting people know that it works on the arc.

All credit for this goes to Chainfire and The Android Exploid Crew

The origional thread is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1044765

Download here


Install the APK and run it.

Quote:

For people getting "could not extract assets" error execute


adb shell rmdir /data/local/tmp

and then

adb shell mkdir /data/local/tmp

no need to "push", just stick it on your sd card and install

you need to execute the commands in the origional post via ADB with USB debugging enabled, because the location is in the system and ironicly you dont have the root privelages to delete them
