One Click Root & Recovery for the Epic 4G! v2.5.5 Now has ClockworkMod Redirector!

Here's a new one click root. 2.4.0 now flashes clockworkmod recovery for you. It's also a little less likely to fail, and is tested to work on Froyo.
It will also work correctly if you are on a pre-rooted kernel. It will install superuser, busybox, and clockworkmod.

http://firon.net/xda/one.click.root.exploitv2.5.5.zip

Here's 2.5.0 of the one click root, now with the clockwork redirector integrated.
I cleaned up noobnl's script a little bit and ensured that adbd would run as root when booted into recovery. Also made sure we symlinked every single applet that recovery's busybox provides.

Now the one click also avoids pushing playlogo unless it detects that you have the old joeykrim root installed, to avoid any potential issues with future froyo releases.

Linux and Mac users users chmod +x run.sh and run it

THANKS FIRON

Here's 2.2.7, that simplifies the root process thanks to the discoveries here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=800483
I also increased the timeout after running the root (fails less), moved more things to /system/xbin to reduce the risk of breaking things, and removes all the old files leftover from joeykrim's root (including his modified playlogo that runs at boot every time).

It also means your system will no longer be mounted as read-only every time you reboot and there's no more problems with jk-su overwriting your existing su binary.

1. you need samsung galaxy s drivers

32-bit drivers: http://firon.net/xda/Samsung_Mobile_Driver_V1.3.800_For_SPH-d700_Epic_4G.zip
64-bit drivers: http://firon.net/xda/usb_drivers_GalaxyS_x64.zip

2. push MENU, select Applications > Development, then enable USB debugging.

3. extract and run run.bat

4. enjoy!

v2.2.4 added busybox and the remount script and fixes sprint animation not showing
2.2.5 superuser.apk & su added!
v2.2.6 installs busybox to xbin
uninstaller http://firon.net/xda/one.click.stock.flasher.&.root.uninstaller-di18.zip

OP. There is a really big step missing here. Guess what it is?

Hint: You need to have set the path in the command prompt for adb in order to work. ;)

I'm typically not brain dead but I'm lost

Working on Windows XP....

A) Installed the 32 bit drivers (strange that when I plug the phone into the USB cord the computer doesn't ever seem to acknowledge that I did so as it did with my BB?)

B) Tried to run the RUN and RUN 2 but I keep getting messages that no device is detected.

Obviously I'm missing something somewhere???????

I'm not even seeing RUN2.

I can see the device with adb devices and ran run.bat and then run2.bat and it rebooted the phone but I don't think I have root. How can I test it? I downloaded wireless tether and it doesn't broadcast.

    Ummmm ya :rolleyes: I guess u did not understand what I was saying. If some one has old FW on there Epic & its unrooted & they want to save some apps or angry birds game saves etc... they mite use this just to run TB & back this up b4 odin as odin will wipe it all out.

    No, they ride the OTA "train" to FC09, then use Odin to flash a kernel, and the su.zip, and what's this? Rooted w/ cwm w/o losing data.

    Now, stop bumping this thread. It is useless.

    I suspect Samsung may have released a newer hardware version that the available Rooting methods dont provide a fully successful root. I spoke with my friend who works for IBM as a high level programmer. Described my problem to him and he said it sounds like the phone hasn't surrendered all of the root permissions yet since I cant do anything via ADB short of the "devices" command. I can only gain root access via Shell. Using the One Click method and the ODIN DK28/clockwork/root method.

    My hardware version is D700.0.5
    can someone prove/disprove this theory by confirming they are having similar issues with this Hardware version number or that I am wrong and they have successfully rooted. I know a mod will likely say this doesn't belong in this forum but seeing as the root method may not work on the newer hardware I think it applies.

    I have left it at the adb reset restart adb sever blah blah, it either locks the phone up or does nothing.

    Just did it,

    "cannot stat rageagaistthecage no such file or directory"

    then just says that adb will be rest and to restar it and login.

    I dont know what any of that means

    I appreaciate al you guys do, but this wont work for me for some reason, Im sure its me.
