Rooted Kernel for Blaze 4G
Sponsored by k0nane.info. Have you tipped your devs today?

DO NOT CHECK REPARTITION! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Why the big red warning? Far too many people have broken their devices by not following these instructions! Search the forums, or drop by IRC - you'll see plenty of examples.

So, you wanted root? You got root! Samsung devices come with an unlocked bootloader. Thanks to pointers from other members that the T-Mo SGS2 CWM boots (badly), we were able to get some dumps, and prep this easily little package for you. This kernel includes a fully-linked copy of BusyBox 1.19.3, init.d (busybox run-parts) support, and various other niceties. Devs, see here for what the script essentially looks like.

Instructions


  1. Download Odin 1.85 - see section below.
  2. Download the rooted kernel TAR - see section below.
  3. Extract the contents of odin-185.zip.
  4. Run Odin 1.85.exe, and prepare Odin:
    • Check "auto-reboot", and uncheck all other options.
    • Click PDA and select the TAR you downloaded. Click PIT and select the PIT your downloaded.
  5. Put your device into Download Mode:
    • Connect the USB cable to your PC, but NOT your device.
    • Remove the battery.
    • Reinsert the battery.
    • Hold down Volume Up + Volume Down + Power.
  6. You should now be at Download Mode.
  7. Click Start in Odin.

That's it! Your device will autoreboot, and your phone should be working properly again.

First of all, thank you for your hard work and time!

I'm just wondering if anything needs to be clicked on when the phone is set on Download Mode?

I have everything setup in Odin but I only get a msg saying:

"<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)"

No activity on the phone. The instructions are clear and I did read them 5 times over :D, just wondering if anything else needs to be done in Odin.

Thanks again!

Whoo Hoo! So jazzed! I was getting impatient with the dev support for the t769 and was going to return it and hold out for the HTC One S.

Now, with Root and CWM, I might just keep this thing. I have a feeling that XDA will make a section for us and ROM dev will be around the corner!

Whoo Hoo!

... and ROM dev will be around the corner

Just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. The process described above will give root access while keeping the stock ROM that came with the phone, right? Upgrading to ICS through the installation of new ROMs is a separate process? Thanks for all the work on this!

Correct, rooted with stock kernel/rom. I got rid of 95% of the bloatware and already notice a difference in snappiness.

Rom support will be soon.

Make sure you have the drivers for your device installed.

We'll see - one can hope. I don't own the device, I'm just here to get you guys off the ground.

Correct. This is just a rooted stock kernel with some other goodies in it.

Just FYI, when you click to upload the PIT, "Re-Partition" will auto select itself again. scared the crap out of me.
That it will.

thanks im going to try this for my bro. I have been waiting for some time to root it and remove the bloatware thank you
Thanks for your support!

    Ok, the text in the original post specifically says to not have the usb cable connected to your phone. I watched the video and while it's not mentioned in the video, the cable is connected to the guys phone the entire time.

    So I started over with the cable plugged in, and now it's "downloading" on the phone.

    If it confused me (I'm just a guy who reads instructions) it will likely confuse someone else!

    Don't forget to uncheck re-partition after you load the PIT, it will toggle it back on and it's easy to not notice it!

    When your phone says "downloading" and you hit start, Odin will do it's magic, it pauses for a few seconds, and then it will reboot your phone, and you'll be back in and everything will be there waiting for you.

    BTW, thanks a bunch. After loading this, I was able to use the sixaxis app in the marketplace to use my old PS3 controller to play SNES and other roms without any problem at all. Works like a charm, and it's a lot better than the old Datel wiipad style one I had before!
