Re: Jailbreak / Root / TWRP Recovery -- Even after update [26JAN13]

Seemed to work without issue. When I try to boot to bootloader in TWRP it just reboots phone. Also, in ODIN mode (done manually) it states Samsung Official, Status Official. Is this normal? I saw Status Custom on someone elses. I do have Root access. It did give me. Warning about flashing custom ROMs though in ODIN mode. Press up to cancel or down to proceed.

OTA question

I just rooted/unlocked yesterday using the old method (Odin) on my pre-OTA phone. I am trying to keep my phone fairly stock at this point (mostly due to being a Noob). My main purpose is to "jailbreak" it so I can update APN info so I can use it for data (internet) overseas. This is critical for me and it was the primary reason I went from my Droid X2 to the Note 2. This morning I saw this post-OTA method and re-rooted using the method here and it worked flawlessly. Then I got thinking...should I have done the OTA after going back to baseline and before doing Backatcha? I hear it gives you more functions (multiple windows etc). Please advise. My phone was scheduled for the OTA tomorrow morning at 0500.

Thank you very much Adam for all your hard work to make this happen!

You could do multiwindow before the ota even dropped? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you

install libusb. I'm not sure what the package is for Linux Mint. I'm also not sure how to best check if drivers are installed... maybe if nothing has connected after 30 seconds, popup something asking the user to install drivers... apt-get install libusb-1.0-0 on debian.

Both Linux mint and Ubuntu have libusb installed.

The phone connects to the computer, it's how I transfered Beans rom to the SD card.

The version of linux mint I'm using is 14, which is a port of Ubuntu 12.10.

Does ADB server need to be running?

-edit-

Code:
*****@*****-desktop ~ $ sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0
[sudo] password for *****: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
libusb-1.0-0 is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  libX11-dev libatk-wrapper-java libatk-wrapper-java-jni libice-dev
  libpthread-stubs0 libpthread-stubs0-dev libsm-dev libx11-doc libxau-dev
  libxcb1-dev libxdmcp-dev libxt-dev x11proto-core-dev x11proto-input-dev
  x11proto-kb-dev xorg-sgml-doctools xtrans-dev
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.

I have also been trying this on Ubuntu 12.10, through a live dvd. On there, it have the green connected, even when the phone is NOT connected to the computer.

Thanks.
I am currently Stock Rooted with ExynosAbuse.apk, I haven't taken the OTA, but after I do will root66 still work to root?

Why are doing root66? You have root66 functionality with what you have now. Don't accept the OTA. If you want to flash ROMS or MODS unlock the bootloader with the tools and methods already available for VRALJB in XDA Original Development.

Re: Jailbreak / Root / TWRP Recovery -- Even after update [26JAN13]

What is the point of this jailbreak by the way? Just asking so I know. My bootloader never got locked because I didnt accept the ota.

The bootloader was locked out of the box. Ota just made it a littlr worse but adam already solved it like a boss.

Thank you so much Adam. Just did this scared as hell. Worked first time with ease. Thanks again

That how I was all night. I tried EVERYTHING on here. Then I downloaded the original root66 and flashed that in odin. Then I took the ota and rebooted. I then ran the jailbreak step by step and it worked flawlessly. Hope this helps anyone else who was using rev2 of root66 and getting stuck on nand write.

Thank you! You saved me a lot of troubleshooting. Same issue, stuck at Nand write. I was stock, except I had installed Chainfire's root exploit and then installed the Verizon OTA, preserving root with Voodoo. I suppose that is what screwed me, having Chainfire root plus Voodoo to restore root.

Thanks again! My bootloader is unlocked and I'm booted into the custom recovery.

I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and it is not working with me with Sun Java or with the OpenJDK. I keep getting this error after it boots the phone into download mode:

ERROR: Failed to access device. libusb error: -3CASUAL SCRIPTING ERROR: java.lang.RuntimeException: JOptionPane: type must be one of JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE or JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGEJOptionPane: type must be one of JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE or JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGEJOptionPane: type must be one of JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE, JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE or JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE

Any idea what I can do to get around this?

Thank you for the workaround, Adam.

I was coming from a Droid 3 where I was using Safestrap and one click roots to get things done. It seems the Note 2 was a little more complicated.

I have a question to clear up some misconceptions on my part because I'm so used to working around the boot loader versus working with the bootl oader. Bear in mind I've graduated from the Droid 3 to the Note 2 and the droid three was locked down tight.

My question looks like it was answered earlier but the phrasing was not conclusive for me so I apologize for asking it again on my own terms.

There is no additional memory being used if we are running stock TW after applying your root method as described herein in your OP?
- Yes, I did install the Baseline AND back Atcha patches. I noticed someone else used a different flash after the Baseline flash to avoid the teamwin boot recovery.

Also, the teamwin boot recovery is utilizing the bootloader of the phone directly and it is not a "safestrap" workaround?

OK. There's something broken. Update your java. If that does not work, I will post up the development copy I have currently. It looks like your java is out of date. Openjdk-7-jre is the package you need.

Thanks!

Just got my note2 a week ago and I took the OTA before I know what was good for me. Just worked the magic in the this thread's first post though and it was dead solid simple. Thanks to all that had a hand in it!

Also, my previous experiences with custom recoveries has been CWM and SafeStrap. I haven't spent that much time with TWRP but from what I've seen so far, I like it. :)

Took me several tries, but I eventually got it to work.

The only problem I had which I don't think was my fault (the rest of the problems were), is that every time I wanted to run the CASUAL application, I had to re-download it, or it wouldn't open. I did have my antivirus disabled, to prevent issues there. Anyone else have this issue?

Also, while I was struggling to get it to work, I Odin back to root66, then was able to get everything here working. I did everything listed here, however, it was before accepting the OTA, which will not install now. Should I disable the OTA reminder and not worry about it, or redo everything, post OTA?

Thanks.

    UPDATE: new version available here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2272066.

    FIRST!!! First jailbreak under the new 2012 DMCA Excemption that is. First "Android Jailbreak" ever... Gah that name erks me... Anyway, You’re here to legally Jailbreak your Verizon Galaxy Note 2.

    Introduction
    CASUAL will guide you through the process. Put your device into “Developer Mode>USB Debugging”. Click the do it button. This is not only the first release of this new Exploit, but it’s also a beta-test of CASUAL. I expect problems... however this will be addressed with updates. See the About CASUAL section below.

    We decided to start a new thread becasue the old unlock method is tried and true on Windows with VRALJB. This method is based on a totally new exploit.


    Overview
    You are expected to be STOCK.... Stock anything, but stock. This will install a stock kernel and that may affect non-stock roms. You will need to download and execute the CASUAL application below. Then click the Do It! button. You need Java. Do you have Java?.

    Windows 32/64 Users: CASUAL will put your device into Download Mode. It will automatically flash everything. If drivers are required, jrloper's CADI (CASUAL Automated Driver installer) will handle it. If Microsoft VC Redistributable is required, click next, next, next. Make sure you're connected to the internet.

    Linux 32/64/raspberry pi Users There may be a permission escalation in order to install heimdall, either way sit back and relax. CASUAL automates the entire process.
    Please run the following in a terminal first:

    Mac Users: Mac works easierr than any other system at the time of this release on 32bit systems. Please report problems.


    Download
    CASUAL(R465b) Back Atcha Verizon CASUAL is used to automate the process. The exploit was developed by Elite Recognized Developer Ralekdev and packaged by AdamOutler. To run CASUAL you need Java. Do you have Java?


    Jailbreak video for Windows users only!
    This video desmonstrates CASUAL used with Odin to flash the Galaxy Note 2 firmware Thanks to DroidModderX.



    Jailbreak video for LINUX only!
    This video demonstrates the one-click CASUAL Linux Unlock method... at 2AM.. so don't expect me to be cheerful.


    About CASUAL
    CASUAL stands for Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Univeral Android Loader. CASUAL jar files are a wrapper for the CASUAL scripting language. CASUAL allows rapid and accurate deployment of hacks and exploits. At any time, if a serious problem is detected with any script, the kill-switch will be flipped and you will be brought to a support page (most likely here) so you can download the latest version. Otherwise for minor corrections, new CASUAL scripts can be deployed remotely.


    Updates
    CASUAL provides updates WAAAAY quicker than Verizon. As soon as I push an update to the Subversion repo it appears automatically in EVERY casual. See below for the change log.
    25JAN13: Initial release.
    25JAN13: put your device into download mode automatically on Windows. Windows users, let me know if this is annoying. -auto CASUAL update
    26JAN13: Instruct Windows users to install the proper bootloader -- auto CASUAL update
    26JAN13: more concise directions --auto CASUAL update
    7MAR13: Initiated beta test of one-click operation on all platforms!
    17MAR13: Cross-platform Heimdall is now in effect with CASUAL R311b
    20MAR13: Removed mac blocker from script --auto CASUAL update.
    6APR13: kill-switch activated as most of repository has been restructured and drivers/dependencies will not be deployed. This will be resolved soon with a new version.
    7APR13: New version includes better driver support via jrloper's CADI and on-the-fly updates for drivers and more. 32/64bit Heimdall for Mac is now supported. Several irrelevant command line features were added as well.
    18APR13: CASUAL R417 Several fixes with improved logging and pastebin support thanks to jrloper
    2May13: killswitch for old versions implemented.

    Ironically I probably wouldn't have noticed the hole used this time had they not added the blacklisting of the old versions. Looking at the code for that gave me a push in the right direction
    26
    Troubleshooting
    70% of problems with CASUAL involve USB cables and USB ports. All other problems can be tracked back to Windows XP.

    CASUAL Stops and my phone is in Odin Mode/Download Mode
    Use a different USB cable and a different USB port. Personally, I have two USB cables which work for everything and anything but they fail when it comes to Odin/Download Mode.

    CASUAL displays Disconnected and won't let me press the button
    Put your device into ADB mode. Settings>Developer Options>USB Debugging

    CASUAL is not working and it's not something above
    Did you install drivers? If you installed drivers, you need to uninstall and delete them. You don't need them because Windows installs them. Actually, they're poisonous, and some drivers install themselves with a future date which causes them to be un-upgradable. This means, you've shot yourself in the foot. You can run Samsung Kies and do the troubleshoot connection wizard, or you can go to device manager and uninstall the driver + delete driver.

    CASUAL is not working and I'm absolutely sure it's not a driver issue
    1. Let everything sit for a bit. CASUAL will generally pop up a troubleshooting message.
    2. If you're sure nothing has happened for the last 3 minutes, disconnect the USB and restart the device normally.
    3. Restart your computer
    4. Try again using a new stock USB cable, on a different USB port, preferably located in the back of the computer.

    I just want to annoy you
    First grab a hammer and go outside into the back yard and hit yourself repeatedly in the head. If you do not have a hammer, borrow one from your neighbor. If you don't have a yard, borrow one from your neighbor. If you don't have a head, mission accomplished.

    You probly caught it in the middle of a commit. try this: http://d-h.st/6c6

    This is CASUAL Revision 311. This includes quicker startup, a full Open Source stack of software, no Odin, auto-downloads, auto-executes, and it works on Windows and Linux. For Windows you have Drivers and MSRedist (both installed by CASUAL), this is a one-click procedure. We are working on making it easier by the day and expect the next release to be even easier. For now, the driver requires you to select "Gadget Serial" and hit install.

    I will bump this up to the first thread now because I've already tested on Window and Linux. Droid Modder X said he would have a video out soon.

    there no way to unlock boot loader on odin another way ?
    Please stand by. I expect to have everything working again today. The purpose of the down-time is to ensure there will be no Downtime in the future. I'm working on it now...

    Basically, its down because jrloper and myself are reworking and upgrading. the CASUAL repository system. It will soon be infinitely expandable and able to pull resources from anywhere.

    An unfortunate side-effect of this is Quality Control takes a bit of time.. as we test, its getting better, faster, accommodating for more errors, performing more troubleshooting, becoming safer and even accounting for errors in data transfer across the internet.

    Its almost ready.
