Yes, it will. Only the functions for bootloader unlocking and locking are for Nexus devices, but the others are universal. :)



Very good , thank you very much

I'm glad you like it. :)

Yes, but not all features will work. For instance, you won't be able to flash system, data, kernel, recovery and splash images, which require a bootloader that supports fastboot commands (which indeed is a S-OFF bootloader). If you are on unlocked S-ON bootloader (HTC Unlock), then they should also work. :)

I recently tried this app, and seems that has very useful functions, thanks.
I have a problem with backup future though. My device(U8800) has a difference about recovery and boot images. Has a seperate fat32 partition which mounted as .cust_backup, in which are the recovery.img, boot.img and some other system files.
So, the app cannot backup recovery and boot. Only backup system and data. The approach used on CMW recovery for my device, is to just copy and compress all this partition which is less that 200MB.
Can you implement support for this in the app?
Here is the mounts of my device:
Code:
[email protected]:/ # cat /proc/mounts
cat /proc/mounts

Hi, mate,
First off, thanks for using my new program. :) I'm looking forward to adding support for your devce, but first I need to know how do you flash and backup recovery and boot images? Do you just flash that combined partition, or you flash the boot and recovery images seperately?

The backup is, as I mentioned, the folder Image(which contains the system files) from .cust_backup partition. The device has a special pink screen in which the pc loads this partition and I just replace the recovery.img with the custom one. Same and with boot.img can happens, but usually, for custom roms, is contained on update.zip.

OK, I will see what I can do with that.

I was wondering when using this app of yours, what state should the phone/tablet/device be in? ie: recovery, phone on but screen off, phone on and screen on etc etc. And I was wondering also how you are able to make it so that the app can root all sorts of different devices.

Is it possible to root Galaxy Nexus running on 4.1 JB with FIDO network???

Theoretically it should be a cinch to root the GNex via this utility as long as you have set up your Android SDK properly. Your bootloader should be unlocked (If not use Feature #20 to do so). Subsequent rooting and then pushing a custom recovery via adb should be very simple.

DISCLAIMER: I have not used this utility to Unlock and Root my GNex. I am only going by the universal methods and assumptions regarding recent Samsung devices. I did use the method given in my signature.
