I have spent the last 4 hours trying to root a family member's Charge
I downloaded odin 1.82, installed the Samsung driver, have tried multiple Voodoo/CWM/root kits that claim they work with Charge EE4
I put the phone into download mode, flash with Odin, and I get a Pass. When the phone reboots, it reboots quickly, and no root is applied.
If pressed up/home/power, I can boot into CWM. This takes several minutes and I hear the voice prompts that should happen after the root. Once I get to CWM, I reboot, BUT there is still no root. I have tried installing superuser.apk, but it says there is not a kernel that supports root.
I have tried 4 different root files, multiple times, the install always passes. CWM is successfully installed, why not the kernel? Any insight into what I am doing wrong?
I am considering flashing a kernel from CWM to see if that fixes it, but wanted to ask the charge community before I grow more gray hairs working on this phone
In CWM the menu button should act as back, but it doesn't. I cannot figure out any back button. Any thoughts?
