Anyone able to help me with setting ip address and gateway so i can use plex and other programs ?

I've tried from terminal and nothing seems to work.

Setting the iP address of BS? If so, not even sure it is possible, none of my searches came up with any information on how to do that... I think BS creates some sort of virtual network with your pc and piggybacks off of that connection. I did read about pwople using some sort of proxy but I didnt get too far with that. I dont even think when I tried connecting to my vpn that it worked well.

i've tested version 0.9.0, and its not rooted. we are mean about superuser access and not modifying DATA partiotion.

no SU binary file installed on system partition,
the system partition is read only mounted and can't access to write or modify anything else on system partition.

by the way , you can access to data partition on all blue stacks versions, the main problem is SU binary file, that you need to install on /system/xbin folder while you can't do it.

Actually it's semi rooted, some apps like Terminal Emulator & Titanium Backup know the existence of this limited root and already utilizes that.



Meanwhile, for those who interested...

Our friend Anatoly has already shared a fully unlocked and pre-rooted KitKat v0.9 on facebook #freestacks group.

I have tested GravityBox on this KitKat build, seems to be working good, SuperSU can be installed with some tricks, will provide more info soon.

For some AMD users, i am sorry to tell you ChainsDD Superuser will no longer work on this 0.9+ version due to the new security measure in KK.
Unless you can find another superuser with a working su binary for your APU, otherwise you don't have a working superuser app to use,
but this doesn't mean that you won't get root, we can still hack the system to use the limited su on-the-fly, the one that always allow superuser request,
but there will be some serious security concerns there, like malicious app can utilize that too to do bad things...

I need to remind you that the above pre-rooted setup has this kind of su, so use at your own risk, and do not simply install app from unknown source.
Also, do not install SuperSU on the pre-rooted version as a normal install will not work and your su will get replaced, you will lose root once rebooted.

I just hate to find a new rooting solution for every new release, and i just don't have the time to implement it in my auto rooter.
This mark the end-of-life for BSMT project development and v0.8.11 will be the last supported version.

But don't worry i am sure someone else will provide a better solution, or better emulator!

Well Done BlueStacks! ok ok you win....



P/S: Someone please take care of the wiki, i am not going to update it anymore...

Sad to see development stop just before the KitKat release :'( but I understand the reason. Anyways, thanks for all the work you did :)

The dev has posted this in response to several reviews:
Dear Knight, Please be aware that you may have a difficulty on playing the game if any program which is not allowed or verified such as BlueStacks is running in your device or caused by certain memory falsification/manipulation. Please check if any inappropriate app is installed on your device. Thank you. Iron Knights

Hi,
Anyone here know how to disable the auto-hide of the navigation bar(bottom bar) in 0.9.0? It's ruining the resolution of some of the apps in full-screen. Thanks!

P.S.
I'm using Anatoly's version as suggested by the author. Was hoping at least the debloater would still work on this version. Twitter/Facebook/Amazon keeps installing itself.

Hey guys, our friend AJacobs from 4pda.ru has once again done another amazing job!

He just updated his BS Tweaker to support latest BS 0.9 KK builds, latest version also comes with multiple language support,
you can switch the language from the top right corner of the program, only english and russian supported at the moment.

If you are using BS 0.9, you should try out the resolution changer, it can definitely helps you to make your BS 0.9 runs smoother.
Beside that, the profile feature helps you to organize multiple profile/settings of your BS - You can consider it as a multi-user replacement.
For more information and support please visit his official thread on 4pda.ru, you can also find him at fb #freestacks group,
don't forget to thank him for making BS a better emulator.

Get the latest version from his official thread or v1.51 from zippyshare mirror provided by him HERE.

EDIT:
AJacobs also shared a pre-rooted version of BS v0.9.1.4057 with SuperSU 2.01 installed, you may get it HERE.






How you were able to run xposed module GB. Could you tell please?
Well, BS 0.9 broke almost every single functions of my BSMT, really disappointing, almost made me lose interest with the KK release.
Wasted weeks to rewrote BSMT engine, after hundreds time of failures, finally managed to get xposed fw installer back working and tested GB.
Just curious whether GravityBox can run on BS, i didn't run any feature test, just roughly played with it, seemed to be working.

Right now there are just too many functions still broken, so i don't think i can share the tool anytime soon - but planned for final release.
If you really need Xposed FW right now, you can join #BluestacksID fb group, i think they have written a xposed tutorial there, they will guide you too.

    WARNING: Direct linking / sharing this rooter program on other forum / file host is NOT permitted.


    COMMONS FAQ (IMPORTANT INFO, PLEASE READ!)
    Q: Why this tool? Why should i use this tool instead of other available method to get root for BlueStacks?
    A: Well, this tool is a time saver! With this tool, you no longer have to spend minutes to hours DIY rooting or downloading hundreds MB of the pre-rooted images.

    Q: How did you come up with this tool?
    A: Well, let's just say i got a thought in my head since years ago, wondering "Why would you need another linux to root BS while you already have one that can do the same job? The BlueStacks itself!".

    Q: How long it takes to get rooted with this tool?
    A: The actual rooting process should take less than 2 minutes to complete, however on slower machine it could takes longer..

    Q: I can see Root.fs being resized, and why 320 MB?
    A: 320 MB for /system is more than enough for normal users, prior to BS ICS version it give ~167 MB free space! and for ICS you get ~48 MB..

    Q: 320 MB for /system is not enough for me, i need to install lots of system apps!
    A: Once unlocked, you can use tool like TopoResize to resize Root.fs

    Q: I feel that my BS is running slower after rooted using this tool, can i undo or return to stock BS give me?
    A: Yes, If you got rooted using this tool, you can use the newly added feature 'Restore Backup' in MultiTool to restore back to stock image.
    A: Alternatively, you can also rename the backup file 'Root.fs.BAK' back to 'Root.fs', you can find the backup in one of following folder:
    • %ProgramData%\BlueStacks\Android\ (Vista+)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\{USER}\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
    Q: I would like to use SuperSU instead of the older Superuser, but the tool keep choosing the later one??!
    A: The tool auto select the last 'UPDATE-Super*' zip found in the tool folder based on filename sorting.
    A: Alternatively, once unlocked with this tool you can simply drag & drop to install your desire superuser app at any time.

    Q: My SuperSU stops working properly after it got updated from Google Play Store??!!!
    A: DO NOT update Superuser app directly, you are adviced to disable 'Auto Update Apps' feature under Google Play settings menu.
    A: Some apps like SuperSU and Xposed cannot be updated using the usual way on BS, use my tool to update instead.

    Q: I got an error 'BlueStacks is missing necessary files / features, what should i do?
    A: First, make sure your BS is installed and running properly, second, check your security/antivirus software that might block access to file.

    Q: I got an error 'Unable to communicate with BlueStacks', what should i do?
    A: Certain firewall software such as Comodo, BitDefender will block local connection too, so you must add this tool to it's white-list.

    Q: I got an error 'This SuperSU is not compatible with your system' -or- 'No su binary found'! what should i do?
    A: Please try to use ChainsDD Superuser provided by this thread (Under downloads section).

    Q: I got an error 'Could not complete rooting task #...', 'Timed out while...', what should i do?
    A: 1) You are adviced to disconnect from internet temporary prior to running this tool. (Stops apps from (up|down)loading...)
    A: 2) Try to remove or kill all unnecessary apps prior to running this tool. (Free some resources)

    Q: The tool said rooting was successful, but non of the root apps is working! SuperSU shows 'No SU binary installed' error!
    A: At the moment only ChainsDD Superuser has been found working with your APU. (UPDATE-Superuser-v3.2a.zip)

    Q: After i ran 'Auto Debloater', my BS shows nothing except black screen, what should i do?
    A: Please Install a custom launcher prior to debloating, otherwise you have no launcher when default one get disabled.
    A: My personal recommendation is Holo Launcher HD, which seems to works well with BS.

    Q: There is no gapps (Google Apps: PlayStore, G+, etc) in my BS after i got rooted with this tool?
    A: Please follow THIS instructions to install gapps on your BS.


    TODO IN COMING UPDATES
    • Add option to resize /system according to user input. CANCELLED
    • Add option to update hosts file directly using drag & drop. DONE!
    • Add 'ROM Customizer' function, something like binary-updater.
    • Maybe this too - Multi-Users mode, if there is enough free time. (But i think BS team is going to release this feature anytime soon.)

    Feature: #13) Dirty Uninstaller
    REQUIREMENTS
    • Administrator's right *might* be needed if your current user account is restricted.
    • WARNING: DO NOT use this if you have any Non-BS program that has the word 'Notification Center' in it's name.

    PURPOSE:
    • ONLY needed if you have problem reinstalling BlueStacks, not for failed installation, eg: system not supported, compatible issues etc.
    • Fix reinstallation issues by removing ALL registry entries leftover by BlueStacks & Notification Center after uninstallation.
    • Eg: error 'Uh oh - BlueStacks cannot be installed on this PC because you already have this version installed.'
    • Why 'dirty'? Oh well, because this tool has nothing to do with uninstalling the actual program, or removing the files, indeed,
    • ...it stimulate uninstalled effect by tricking the setup program to *think* the program is not installed, even though it's installed.

    HOW TO USE:

    WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

    1) Run your BlueStacks Built-In uninstaller from Control Panel.
    • NOTE: You will also need to uninstall 'Notification Center' which is also a BS program.
    • TIPS: You can also use your favorite helper program such as Revo Uninstaller, CCleaner, etc to uninstall.

    2) Start BSMT and press '7' to start Dirty Uninstaller.
    • You will be given an option to continue or abort. To abort you can simply close the program window.
    mBu8a6m.png

    • If you choose to continue, the cleaning will begin.
    k36uMyd.png

    • NOTE: The tool will try to create a registry backup for entries that will be removed. (RegistryBackup.reg)
    • TIPS: The backup can be found under the same dir with BSMT, double click the registry file and answer YES to restore.
    EujlzcW.png

    3) Once completed, restart your computer and delete any left over files found in:
    • %TEMP%\bst*
    • %ProgramFiles%\BlueStacks\*
    • %ProgramFiles(x86)%\BlueStacks\*
    • %ProgramData%\BlueStacks\*
    • -OR- your customized installation/data path.

    • Administrator's right *might* be needed if your current user account is restricted.

    PURPOSE:
    • If you tried the 'Factory Reset' in your running BS you should have know that it didn't work as expected.
    • With this tool you can stimulate a factory reset effect similar to clearing your data/sdcard partitions.
    qdvWZGW.png

    HOW TO USE:

    WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

    1) Backup your apps & data, sync your contacts, messages, settings, etc.
    • NOTE: All apps that were installed after BS first start will be deleted, including it's shortcut on Windows.

    2) Prepare needed apk files to be reinstalled, eg: custom launcher, GApps Installer, etc.
    • I recommend Holo Launcher HD, works well with both BS 0.7 & 0.8. (Need some customization to make it looks nice)
    • TIPS: Link to download gapps installer (Play Store, Play Services) can be found in first post.

    3) Start BSMT and press 'F' to start Full Factory Reset.
    • You will be given an option to continue or abort. To abort you can simply close the program window.
    i3yBGmp.png

    • Next, you will be given an option whether to backup existing data or not, please decide wisely!
    • INFO: If your data/sdcard are full the backup could takes 16GB!! Make sure you have enough space!
    • Once you have chosen the backup option the actual reset will begin.
    • Default unrooted state will be restored for BS v0.8.11 and above, for other versions, root will be kept.
    • TIPS: If you ran debloater before and deleted default BS launcher, you might get black screen on first boot,
    • ... to solve that, simply drop your custom launcher apk file to BSMT to install and get back your HOME screen.
    Kvi6oCd.png

    • If you have chosen to create backup, the backup path will be given when the reset job done, please copy it down.
    • TIPS: You can copy & paste the path in your address bar to navigate to the backup dir.
    • Please delete any backup that is no longer needed to save some space.

    4) Once completed, you may start your BlueStacks.
    • INFO: The first boot after reset will take much longer than usual to boot as files need to be copied.
    • If first boot failed, please restart your computer and try to start BS again.
    • If somehow the reset did not work and your BS could not be started, please restore from backup manually.
