With the SGS4 samsung has introduced a setuid kernel, which will block root access. you will need to flash a source compiled kernel in order to fully root.

Just successfully flashed OUDHS CWM-based Recovery 1.0.3.0 successfully...haven't tried much of the functionality until I fix my phone from the bootloop I put it in.

Something I did notice while navigating around the menu using my volume keys was that the screen was only refreshing every other keypress. I know that the state of the program was changing but the screen was only redrawing every other input.

I had the same problem as the guy above and tried the test 3 tar and it fixes the screen but no touch function.

also just tried CWM recovery and it was only letting me go to every other selection then rebooted all on its own.

confirmed test 3 did not fix the touch screen issue. cwm will sometimes double click and is tricky to navigate with the graphics issue but functions normally otherwise. did a full wipe and restore booted fine both times with no permissions issues. this was garwyns version btw.

    The recovery is also the kernel, correct? I've been flashing ROMs for about 4-5 years now so I do understand how it all works, hence my post count and join date on XDA.

    No, the kernel is again part of the ROM, it's what controls the back-end of the Android Operating System, devices, cpu power, i/o, etc. This is flashed as a part of the ROM or you can get them separate, but they only affect the way the Android system works. It has nothing to do with Recovery. Recovery has it's own set of parameters on how it interacts with the device, and it only relies on power and a valid bootloader.

    Recovery is booted from the bootloader of the device, it happens at a very low level, before any ROM, kernel or anything else is initialized.

    The way most devices work... The board receives power, powers on the cpu, the internal memory, etc, and also the radio turns on, the radio is what initializes the bootloader, and then the bootloader loads what it's told to load. This could be the Android system, or recovery or download mode, or whatever else it's told to do. Depending on what button sequence you give it, tells it what mode you want it in.

    You may be a long standing member, but your understanding of how things work isn't as good as you may think. I mean no disrespect or offense. I'm just stating fact and giving you the suggestion to wait until things are better developed.

    PM'd you the vendor files.

    thanks, just looked didnt see teh files or anything close to them to what id need, so im gunna scan through the init files looking for teh touchscreen binaries.

    also for anyone that wants to be rid of it:

    # for LogMeIn
    mount ext4 /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system rw wait errors=panic remount

    chown graphics /system/bin/RescueStarter
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/RescueStarter
    chown graphics /system/bin/RescueServer
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/RescueServer

    mount ext4 /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system ro wait errors=panic remount

    ....

    # for LogMeIn
    service RescueStarter /system/bin/RescueStarter
    class core
    user graphics
    group input graphics

    its a service provided by sprint/logmein that they can remote to your device and assist you should you have problems, some people prefer things like this to be removed, so just fyi :)

    (that was in one of the init scripts)

    would this require 'adbd insecure' and also is that the exact command to type or did you Que me to swap 'by-name' with a relevant bit of info?

    4 years using android and still learning the basics. embarrassing lol

    hey now, we all start somewhere. and no thats the direct path for you :)

    adb insecure would make it easier, but i instead typed out adb shell and then su to get rooted shell :)
