Hi guys,

ALL CREDITS OF ROOT GOES TO djrbliss,
ORIGINAL THREAD HERE


I've been working alllll day and allll night long,
to make some modifications to great djrbliss's tool:

  • to eliminate problems like 'com.pwn.me' error etc.
  • timing is correct,
  • it goes fully automatic,
  • disabling mpt device automatically, and reenabling,
  • modded to work on 64 and 32bit systems,
    (tested on winxp 32bit, win7 64bit).
etc etc...

Remember to have correct MTP driver installed!
Please post results if it works for you :)

It didn't work for me. The problem is I can't seem to install the supplied driver. Tablet S appears twice in the device manager, and I can't install the driver, it gives me a code 28 error.



As a result when I start the batch, I get the following and hangs there without doing anything.

[*] Waiting for device...
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *


Any advice how to get the driver correctly installed?

Are there any potential issues when ICS update arrives?
Hmmm... potential issues? I think no. When ICS update will be available, then when you flash it - you will just loose root. We could try OTA RootKeeper, but I don't know if it will work with our tabs. Gotta try with normal/present ota update - and I will let you know.

I'm comming from Galaxy S 2 forums and everything seems to be way easier there.
Here, I was affraid even to root it. LOL
It's where a pro becomes a noob. ...when getting a new device....

I studied the source code of OTA root keeper today and it looks very interesting.
On the first view it should work on our tab and I guess it could save the root rights when ICS will arrive via OTA.
Supercurio used a very good trick (old linux command) to protect the su-backup file on a ext2/3/4 file system. The create a backup of su under /system/ with the name su-backup and protect the attributes with the 'chattri' command. Due to this fact, the OTA update will be not able to change something of this file. I am looking forward for ICS update next month and hope I am right.
