unrEVOked 3.1...to full root

Search This thread


Jun 9, 2010
Hello all,

I was one of those people who used the unrEVOked root to simply obtain wireless tether. Now that I have it, I cant update to Froyo. Would anyone be able to suggest a method to obtain full root so I can just flash a Froyo ROM?

FYI, I dont have adb shell or android sdk installed. I was looking at toast's method however I am unsure, if that is the correct path to march in. I have no problem learning adb shell if necessary.

Thanks in advance and look forward to buying someone a beer.

I had unrevoked as well. This is what you need to do:

Download simple root.

Click button 1 root, follow prompts. reboot.

click button 2 recovery, select ra recovery. reboot.

Download rom, radio, and wimax. Put all into SD card.

Boot into recovery. (power & vol down)

wipe data, cache, dalvik.

Select update from sd. choose select zip file (not update.zip)

select rom zip, install. reboot

Boot into recovery. (power & vol down)

install radio, then wimax(same way as rom). Pretty sure you should reboot each time. That's what I did atleast.

That's it. I updated my profile afterwards in system updates to make sure no problems w/ data occurred.

You can flash some ROMs, including netarchy's rooted stock ROMs, without a "full root". Even though Unrevoked is not a full root, the NAND is unlocked when you are in the ClockworkMod recovery.
