Pre-Rooted Stock Firmware

Goodevening everybody,

Many of us love root but want to stay stock (like me) well. By following this guide: link ©quetzalcoatl2435. I was able to pre-root Stock Central Europe 1.
This thread is made with only one purpose: To share it!

If you want me to make one of your own choosing (branded, unbranded, generic etc) give me a call + download link for your ftf file and I'm good to go. Or follow the guide I linked to!

Details of all the pre-rooted ROMS I've made:
  1. Fully stock
  2. No bloatware removed or added (you can do this yourself now)
  3. Still Odex
  4. No CWM after flashing but you should be able to install it again

REQUIREMENTS

STEPS:
  1. Download the .zip file (see downloads)
  2. Put the pre rooted firmware + SU zip into your internal SD
  3. Flash both files and turn the phone off
  4. Open flashtool into flashmode
  5. Flash 266 kernel
  6. Reboot device
  7. Done

If you want to have a custom Recovery you could try to flash the following zip:
- Download: Dev Host


DOWNLOADS

Stock FirmWare CE 1 Pre-Rooted
- Download: Google Drive

Stock FirmWare Global Pre-Rooted
- Download: Google Drive

Stock Firmware Generic IN Pre Rooted (C5302)
- Download: Google Drive

If you due to any reason want to go back to fully Stock without root and the lose of data:
Flash Stock ROM via Flashtool but uncheck DATA at WIPE this will keep your installed applications etc ;)

Well it is weird actually since I have it fully booting etc.
You can try a few things:
- Redownload and reflash
- Reflash
- update to 266 downgrade and try again

Finaly i flashed rom. Everything was allright until I try use titanum backup.IT says theres no root access. I checked supersu (the same about no root) and root checker. I Think root dissapeared after flash 266 kernel only. I have no idea, IT is to much for me.

wipe?

Do I have to wipe anything prior to installing?

I have done everything according to the OP.
I don't have root after all. Titanium Backup says that and I have no SuperSU either.

Weird...

Any idea?

You flashed the Su zip? Because the program and a few needed files are in there ;) If not then you have to start over since CWM is removed after installing the ROM.

Yes, I have. I flashed the ROM, then SU.zip, power off, flash .266 kernel only.
Reboot. All is fine, except for no root.

To be honest, I am already back to the CWM backup of 4.1.2 with root and CWM and bloat removed.
Your job is appreciated, though. :D
