(New! Windows/Linux/MAC Support!)



so guys good news! we have a new exploit working! i have tested this on my friends Nexus 4!

i have successfully ported it for the devices i have/use... it was ported to android by hiikezoe but it was a HUGE pain trying to get every address involved... HUGE thanks to fi01 for helping out understand the whole process and giving a great walkthrough as to how to port new devices to it!



[ NOTE ]

this WILL WORK on both LOCKED & UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER DEVICES!


beginning from v13 now you only need to be on the corresponding firmware! any customization SHOULD work



[ how to root ]


  1. just download the file, extract it completely using winzip/winrar
  2. go to the folder where its extracted and execute "RUNME.bat"
  3. read and follow the instructions on the screen!
  4. REBOOT THE DEVICE AFTER THE SCRIPT HAS FINISHED EXECUTION!
Code:
 ---------------------------------------------------------------
	              Easy rooting toolkit (v17.0)
                    created by DooMLoRD
                    "pref_event exploit"
    Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
---------------------------------------------------------------
   Special thanks to: the_laser, Bin4ry, fi01, hiikezoe, [NUT]
  and to all those who are contributing to our git tree!
       Sources: https://github.com/android-rooting-tools
---------------------------------------------------------------

      (1) root ur device 
      (2) install Busybox

      (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
            from (Menu\Settings\Applications)

Lol yup I was just about to ask. As I figured it would be first question. Glad you added its addressing for future possibility. A great root tool. Never get enough exploit. That's what I say. Lmao. Peace bro. And I've heard your name several times but I was always on another device. Peace.

Wow man. @DooMLoRD great job.

For a moment I thought I stumbled onto some Xperia thread :p. Nice to see you here, DoomLord.

one of my friends was bugging me to root his Nexus 4 without unlocking bootloader... since i was working on this exploit for Xperia devices i thought might as well get it working on the Nexus 4 :D

Doesn't work. Locked device is shown via adb as offline and script hangs on *demon started succesfully

search online on how to resolve "adb offline issue"

Download latest adb for 4.2.2. Then you will get a prompt on your phone when you connect to adb. Press yes or allow or whatever.

My bootloader is locked, if I use this script, will it unlock my bootloader to root and then relock it or will it somehow wipe all my data like if I was unlocking the bootloader?
Also, if I want to unroot, can I do it with mskip's toolkit?

reinventing the wheel... cmon we have 4 toolkits already. that works.
show me any one of ur toolkits which support rooting the huge list of devices mentioned in the OP and that too WITHOUT UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER....

i just posted it here since i thought it would be useful to the N4 community...

if i am not welcome here, i think i will lock down thread.. .

Nice!! DooMLoRD is here!!! :D I haven't seen you since my x10 days man! Do you own an N4, or just providing some dev for us?

I'm glad to see you around these parts regardless. I really respect your work!!

Be nice!! DooMLoRD isn't just a name...he is an xperia GOD!! lol IIRC, he (?) was one of the lead devs in unlocking the xperia 2010 and 2011 bootloaders when sony gave us all who didn't buy sim unlocked versions the middle finger when we asked to have our bootloaders unlocked along with those who did buy their devices sim unlocked. You can turn your nose up at that feat all you want, too, because I remember reading all the posts in the dev thread about how good of a job sony did at locking that sucker down, too....that was NOT exactly an easy nut to crack, to say the least!

Firstly - thanks a bunch. Was hoping I wouldn't have to wipe everything without a nandroid, et voila!

but....
Doesn't work. Locked device is shown via adb as offline and script hangs on *demon started succesfully
search online on how to resolve "adb offline issue"
I'm having a similar issue, except mine's not 'offline'.
My SDK is fully up to date, and device is not 'offline', it shows normally under abd when polled 'adb devices'. I can access basic ADB commands just fine.
I accepted the security message when it prompted me (before even trying your script), it's something different, I believe.

Hangs on the daemon started line of your script.

Nevermind, looks like I got it to work.
Went through it line by line to see where it was having issues, and it completed all the way through. There were a few errors reported in the main shell run, but I have supersu and successfully granted su to terminal.
I think the problem was because it failed on the previous run, the tmp folder already existed, and it was trying to recreate it and not reporting an error/exception (?)
I skipped down and ran it line by line starting with pushing the files and no problem.

Thanks!

dude its not about donations... this exploit is VERY specific to kernel, software version & device... it has to be manually ported to each new kernel, new software version, and new device..

the point of having different threads is to isolate device specific issues (if any) and avoid confusion...
