Hi,


This thread may look like another massive how to root your device by downgrading and bla bla bla..... But I have found a new app/solution that will help you root your device!

What to do:
1: Go to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2783157 And download the application called TowelRoot.
2: Install the app and open it and press the button.
3: Phone will reboot within 15 seconds.
4: When rebooted your phone has root. To be sure you can download the app RootChecker from Play store

From here you have 2 ways to install a proper SuperUser app:
1: Install a custom recovery see: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2649923
2: Download the SU from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r4.zip
3: Flash it via recovery

Or
1: Download the SU .zip (see above)
2: Put it on SD card and unzip it
3: Install the SU app and update the binaries Normal

From now on you have full root so you can install a custom recovery and run apps that need root.

Proof can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53424062&postcount=4616

FAQ:

Q: Will this work on my C5302 or C5306
A: Yes

Q: Do I lose my warranty
A: No, depends on the way the service center handels this. So to be sure you can reflash the stock rom to fully remove root (or unroot via SU app)

Q: Will this work on any ftf
A: Yes, it will work on all ftf with a kernel that has been build before 3 june (see towelroot thread)

Q: SOS my phone is bootlooping!
A: Flash Remount Reboot Fix http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpe...b-definitive-root-remount-reboot-fix-t2317432

I saw the news on Android Police, and I couldn't believe it, so I came here to check it, and yes, my customized ES 205 rooted in a minute.

Hi,


This thread may look like another massive how to root your device by downgrading and bla bla bla..... But I have found a new app/solution that will help you root your device!

Steps:
1: Go to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2783157
Download the application called TowelRoot.

2: Install and run the application!
Just to be sure: Download RootChecker and test!

Because there is no official SU app we need to install it

3: Install a Recovery
Install it like normal

4: Download SU from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r4.zip

5: Flash it using the recovery

And enjoy Root!


This easy method takes 5 minutes max!

!! It will only work on kernels that are build before 3 june!

So our 201 and I bet the 205 build will work too!

Proof can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53424062&postcount=4616

No you dont need recovery to flash SuperSU just put this http://download.chainfire.eu/447/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r4.zip in your SD find the apk install it , open it choose normal on pop up message box, unistall towelroot app and voila perfect rooted phone.

Will do..

However you cannot install a SU app and update the binaries... This will fail! So if you want proper root with a managing app (SU) flash the .zip via recovery.
