    Root for the Spectrum 2 (JELLY BEAN)

    Ok guys, we can root the new jelly bean update with one of the motorola root exploits, Motochopper.

    Here's the link: http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...12/?pid=244281

    Edit: If you have the latest JB update, you'll need to use this root method: Download links for root_LTE2_final-Aiopk.com.zip - Mirrorcreator - Upload files to multiple hosts

    Looks like we need a new recovery, maybe there's something where the one we had for ICS came from.

    Also it looks like some verizon and lg processes ask for root permission, they seem to get denied automatically which i would think is a good thing. Havent seen that before but everything seems to be fine. I do wonder if it would cause issues if those apps would get root access granted.

    Edit: Found a working updated recovery: Recovery for the Spectrum 2 (JELLY BEAN)

    No, it just hanged at the part you select on the phone to restore data.

    That sucks, glad I found this one. I went through quite a few trying to find one that worked. I'd say we're pretty lucky to have something so quick for JB. I didn't have high hopes.

    I know and we're so close, we've got that one ROM that reverses the touchscreen. I feel like if we had a good developer on it it could be solved in no time. Once we got a base that worked I think that would open the door for us. I almost want to see if maybe a JB ROM for the LTE2 would work but without a way to fix the touchscreen if it gets reversed i'm not quite ballsy enough.

    The issue and it has been attempted by several Devs to solve is the bootloader is locked down tight. If and when that is cracked, flashing Roms will be easy but until that day we are stuck. :-(
