Hi guys!
I've seen a few methods how to get root access on latest .253 firmware, but this one is, I think, the easiest way available:

1. If on .253, use flashtool to flash an older version which has available OTA for .253. The one I used is: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2223827

2. Root is as simple as it gets with: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460 . Use 3) option to root.

3. When rooted enter "Superuser" and check "ota rootkeeper".

4. After 3. is done go to settings > apps > all > update center > clear data, to avoid force close error, then enter "update center" app on your phone and hit refresh button to get OTA .253 update notification. Download and install latest firmware.

Done!

Another guide, although the existing one is still simpler I think.


From me to you.

Well basically this is:
1) Go back to .434
2) and use easy root for .434

Not really easy root for .253

3) and OTA update to .253

I find this method way more simple than installing dual recoveries and flashing prerooted firmwares after downgrading and stuff. My tutorial is basically: root with binary tool > OTA update. If there is simpler way to root latest .253 I would like you to paste me a link so I could learn something new.

I did yes, as most People I imagine will want to install CWM, so it's just doing the step before, instead of after using this method. To be fair though this is quite simple so I'll add a link to it, but under the name .253 OTA ROOT, as this thread should be called.

If this works (I haven't tried it yet) I think it is the easiest way.
Only a couple of question before try it, is there a kind of problem like reboot when mount system partition to write with this method?
And, which ROM did you use to try that?

Thank you for all!!

(Sorry for my bad english)

If you flash firmware I posted in first post, you always get OTA. That makes it relevant enough I guess.
