No, you have to unlock the bootloader using fastboot easily. Sent from the beige bra section at Target.
Okay Ac.3... Please correct me if I'm wrong so I know that I've got this straight.

In order to use RootME, the device is required to have an unlocked bootloader?

I'm not complaining but, there's so many situations requiring a device to be rooted first before being able to unlock the devices bootloader.

It's just for my clarification as an important possibility with the requirement/prerequisite before using RootME.

Thank you very much! :)

I really have no idea where you got that from (maybe Android 2.3 and bellow) but its exactly the opposite as there are many cases where you can root almost every device without unlocking the bootloader unless you're flashing in that case it needs to verify the signature which is nowadays unnecessary.. I added the requirement to unlock the BL in this tool just in case it might not work with all devices so the answer to your question is NO you don't need root to unlock the bootloader buddy [emoji3] [emoji3]

Oh okay, so for my ZTE Majesty Pro (ZTE Z799VL), for instance, to unlock the bootloader would require me to flash a Fastboot mode onto my device (requiring root) so your tool is worthless to me & will do nothing to root (or unlock) my phone (or its bootloader) right?

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that you aren't only talking about locked bootloader but removing radio secure flags, I'm not really familiar with that but as far as i've been told it needs a locked bootloader and root access... but like I said before using fastboot does not require root because it is simply a protocol that works as a recovery (re-flashing partitions doesnt require root)
It just seems to be a problem of compatibility so I'm sorry if my tool isn't quite useful for you mate :) I might look that up too and add to RootME in the future updates

Woah..... Wait a second, so whenever a carrier does a hardware revision on a device that is what gives those flags? I apologize for the hostility in my original reply however I see so many "new" rooting tools that don't address a mass prepay device root gap, but if the "Radio secure flags" as you mentioned are indeed the issue here, then i appreciate the further perspective to research myself as i want to learn more about rooting devices with locked loaders, heavy carrier provisioning, or anything that further hinders the free use of any android :)

Or you can invest your time in something else important.. If you want to know why my tool targets multiple devices just open the rooting script, the thing is almost all devices share the same path to install the required files if not a (if [...]then else) command will add a little more compatibility I think ??

Went to the GitHub branch, read the .sh script, saw the same basic generalities as one could gather from https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2684210

Although I could be incorrect, it's likely (since I've followed those steps one by one, many times, on many devices, until eventually you get 'permission denied') that my time is still best spent right where it is ;).

Yup that's quite common, it is cause by the SU binaries dunno how it happens but I switched with from the SuperSU zip and now it works fine

It's quite common to take tutorials already on XDA, swap out a binary, write a batch script, then tell others they're wasting their time when that doesn't cut it for them :confused::confused::confused::silly::silly::silly:

Yes sure why not except that I dont even use Windows and I personally wrote the bash script and I gave it to someone in a xda off-topic group to write the batch script so next time you swing that judging bat of yours try to make sure you're actually on point Sherlock :):)

Okay, I'm not doubting any of what you're saying is 100% accurate, as i believe that anybody could follow the link I provided to the "Universal Root Method" thread, & do the typing themselves & come out with a shell/batch script that has an = source. :)

Welp this **** won't work on later android versions (tested on kitkat). You actually need root privilege to mount files to system.

Hi,

I'm just trying your skript. But I guess I am doning something wrong.

The cmd-Window in my windows opens and then I have to press any kind of button. After that it tells me

--- Starting ADB ---
* daemon started successfully *

After that nothing happens anymore. I have waited 5 minutes. Do I have to wait longer? Or what could be the reason that it does not move on?

Many thanks for your help.
