    How to maintain root through any upgrade (Motorola Devices Only) from P3Droid

    This is strictly from P3Droid, i'm just passing on the information:

    How to maintain root through any upgrade (Motorola Devices Only)
    Doing the following will allow your device to maintain root through any upgrade (unless motorola changes things)

    I use root explorer, but you can also use adb pull and push.


    RootExplorer Method

    go to /system/bin/
    open in text editor - mount_ext3.sh
    add the following lines to the very bottom

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk


    ADB method

    adb pull /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    open the file in your favorite text editor
    add the following lines to the very bottom

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    Save file

    adb push mount_ext3.sh /data/local
    adb shell
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/null /system
    cat /data/local/mount_ext3.sh > /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    chmod 777 /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh

    Done!!!



    This method was proposed by Djrbliss, and only slightly altered by me...please thank @DjrBliss on Twitter.

    Does this allow for the update to be integrated, or does this just make the update "pass by" your Droid? It seems like there are some things in the Nov update that might be valuable, even to rooted users...

    It is my understanding that doing this method allows you to take an OTA update and retain root

    Agreed. Here's P3Droid's exact tweet:

    This makes me believe that this is for the OTA updates.

    It says that you need to be stock for the OTA. As in bloated and everything. This will just hopefully maintain root after the OTA.

    Lucky me so far, then. I haven't flashed to a ROM yet, and I've gone the simple route and frozen (rather than uninstalled) much of the bloat.

    So would it be best to unfreeze apps in anticipation of the OTA? I followed one of the more sparse lists found here, and I didn't freeze the FOTA as some recommend. I HAVE frozen the various VZW Apps (Music, Video, Social).

    Maybe I should just unfreeze everything once the update time draws near, just to keep it simple?

    sounds great, only problem for me is that I got sick of frozen apps reattaching themselves to the market and auto-updating, so I uninstalled them.

    I do have a bone stock backup that I can restore and change the file on that one, then when the ota comes I can restore that backup and apply the update.

    do we know if this can be deodexed, or does it need to have the odex stuff there?

    Need help, I can make the changes but can not save them. Obviously I'm missing something. Are there "assumed" steps that I missed?


    OK, found it.
    LOL, forgot to Mount R/W.
