thank you nmyseteroious for the snapshot ;)



[ part 1: hotbooting the insecure kernel ]

  1. download the insecure kernel (v02)
  2. reboot into fastboot mode (adb reboot bootloader)
  3. check if device is detected (fastboot devices)
  4. if its detected then hotboot this kernel u downloaded (fastboot boot filename.img)
  5. the device will start booting
  6. now go to part 2


[ part 2: executing the rooting toolkit ]

  1. download the v02 toolkit for JetStream files and extract contents in root directory of ur pc (e.g: c:\ OR d:\)
  2. activate USB debugging
  3. connect device (with my insecure kernel on it) to pc
  4. execute RUNME.bat


thats it ;)

ur device should now be permanently rooted after reboot...

now i am wondering what part of the Bounty will i get :D

Is this a permanent root or is root lost when performing a master reset or rom update and will need to be reapplied?

first, this stinks. I'm in Texas away from my pc. Can't root just yet because of that. But that gives you time to make a recovery...

Second, this needs to make the front page of xda, XDA tv, etc.

fourthly, as a semi-newbie that just follows directions on most forum threads to get his androids to be amazing, I would like to request someone begin a thread of some top tips on how to make the jetstream awesome now that root access is had and there aren't many rooms or mods developed. example: deleting bloatware, enhancing SD card read times, etc (anything i might not know of)

Thirdly, pay day is tomorrow I think. I wil be giving my 100$ prize as promised to doomlord, correct? :D

I am excited!
