Ladies and gentlemen I report that we have a root...I repeat, WE HAVE A ROOT on my Droid Bionic running the new Jelly Bean OS v! And a big ol' phat THANK YOU to marty45714 for this extremely simplified script for those of us that know nothing aboutLinux.
Here are the steps that he set forth and I followed:
1) Install Sun VirtualBox on your Windows PC.
2) Download the VirtualBox .ova file here:
3) Import the .ova file into VirtualBox. (Click "File" then "Import Appliance".)
4) Start the imported VM in VirtualBox (Click the big "Start" Button. It has a green arrow icon.)
5) Follow the instructions on the Linux console.
That should do it. If you need help I will be monitoring this thread.
Here's where I downloaded VirtualBox 4.2.12 for Windows hosts: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads . It says x86 but will also run on a x64 windows OS as well.
I have a couple of thoughts:
1) Is there any chance that you have more than one entry on your phone in the Remote Storages section? If you do, that could cause the SMB share to be mounted to /storage/rfs1 or somewhere other than where it should mount which is /storage/rfs0.
2) Did you type everything EXACTLY as it's shown on the Linux console, leaving no trailing spaces on any words and typing "MYGROUP" in all caps?
Try both of those. In the meantime, I'm going to try to write some more logic into the scripts and re-upload everything again to make the process even more full-proof.
UPDATE 5/1/2013 - New and improved .ova file. Contains improved logic in the exploit script to help with some of the problems that have been encountered by users.
If you've had trouble rooting, please download the new version and try again!
So i have a few quesitons, I have everything set-up right, i have linux script running on my laptop, i plug the phone into the laptop.
when i do the simple steps, and trying to "add storage" it states Network Error
So with that, im running my internet off a verizon jetpack at the moment, ( i live in the boonies, but have 4g with 8mbps speed). My IP with this tends to show a location 250 miles away.
Do you think that could be the problem? im going to try it at my parents house with a actual router, but it seems i cant get it to work for the moment ill update on progress tomorrow.
Yeah, you really need the phone and the PC running the Linux VM to be on the same network segment so that the phone can talk to the PC's IP address on port 445. The ideal thing is to have the phone connected to a wireless router and have your PC either connected to that same WIFI or connected by Ethernet cable to that same router.
