This method is now depreciated, please see the A9 TWRP thread.


If you appreciate this, please considering donating to Chainfire, and either donating to beaups and myself at [email protected] or purchasing a copy of our SunShine s-off application, which we hope to bring support to the A9 with soon from http://theroot.ninja

Hey Jcase thank u for this nice thread..

My question is my device is 1.10.401.7 and i need to root it by your thread so :

-First i need to unkock the bootloader
- download the supersu or superuser and reboot "adb reboot download" and get acces to option and then flash the su zip ?

I'm right ?

If its a non ATT A09, then I will need to whip together an image for your device. Let me know if it isn't and I can

For use Sprint users , is there anything we can do to help along with a Sprint version of this?

Just got the A9 today. . . I did not think about how new it was , and was all kinds of looking forward to getting rooted. :)
See "[Requesting Model/Carrier/Firmware Support]" in the op

PM me then, I will need to build a boot.img for sprint
I also have Sprint. I should be able to flash the "recovery" image (not the boot) that you provided and then backup the boot partition from recovery correct?

Also, can your boot image (the one you would make for Sprint) work WITH encryption? I just spent the entire weekend setting up my device and do NOT want to reset to factory.
