Hey thanks for your tutorial! i have a question though.
Do i have to remove the batery to get in fastboot mode? I'm saying this because i can get to the bootloader menu and select fastboot just by powering down my phone, keeping volume down + power pressed. I did'nt have to remove the batery to see the menu you are saying. So is it the same or do i have to remove the batery??

Thank you :)

It's not, but why do you need it so bad, it's not needed for flashing roms

Please change the app from supersu to the non-cwm superuser app, and bundle busybox with it.

The desire 300, as a few people have stated, doesn't like supersu, and even with root, you can't change files on the Rom. It only deletes them.

Also, you can disable fastbooting in the power menu in settings.
Just scroll to the bottom.

I have had SuperSU on my Desire 300 for a couple of months, I have never had a problem with it. Files can't be changed on the ROM because the device is S-ON which means /system is write protected, even when /system partition is remounted as rw any files deleted will return on reboot.
A way to modify /system with S-ON is to do so from CWM with ADB or with aromafm.

Does anybody else have a bug with CWM having its graphics offset about 20 pixels or so to the left and reappearing on the right hand side of the screen?
Each press of the cursor swaps between this and perfect.
