    Anyone seen the FRG83 update for the Nexus 1? It closes the Universal AndRoot loophole. If the D1/2/X/Fascinate sees that then we're back to ADB and/or MotoCache1's method.

    From what motocache said earlier this week his method may not work either if that is coming down the pipe.

    Didn't hear about that. Maybe I need to get back in touch with him.

    You replied in the post he made in labs. Has to do with replacing the HAB?
    Maybe I don't understand but it sounds scary enough!

    FYI fbm, this IS the adb method. It uses Steve Krahmer's rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin file. Congrats on your new status, btw.

    Oh, was that for the Droid X and the signing keys? Yeah, that's not good news. Just goes to show, if you're going to root, root NOW! Every update may be the last rootable one!

    Thanks for the 'grats!

    So when that update rolls down it might close yet another loophole, and possibly Moto's as well if they really try to lock us down. Good to know.

    No, but the site doesn't like our phones. The solution is below and updated in the op, thanks for bringing it up!

    Couple of items:

    The FTP website where the RS files are hosted does not, at this moment, let your phone download files. grrr.

    I've updated the first post. I switched the option blocks around so the root-without-a-computer comes first.

    There is a direct download of a zip file now that contains all the files needed along with directions on how to make use of them, all with just using your phone.

    For Teddy:
    I looked at the instructions within the droid.co exe file and they all set SU and Busybox to 4755 so I copied and pasted those instructions then modified the steps to use terminal emulator instead of needing busybox. As you noted, all credit for the rageagainstthecage exploit goes to Sebastian Krahmer at C skills.

    If he should have used different permissions I will change them here in the OP for the phone-only install, but his text files are now everywhere with the 4755 settings.

    Is the Rage Against The Cage exploit what the folks at blog.23corner.com are using within UniversalAndroot? I sort of wondered if that was the case.

    And bummer if they are closing the door on this. They should let us all be and go make cooler native apps for our phones instead. They block, the community unblocks, and round and round it goes

    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Chris, as far as I can tell, the UniversalAndroot uses the expliot (basically a rip from the first DMUpdater11, just like easyroot) via sql and not this one. The link that "log" gave in the second post of my thread asking about the permissions gives a really good in depth breakdown of the two latest non RSD lite methods.

    As far as the permissions, I am still on a fence about that. I just don't see why we have run busybox as root now, when we never had to before. I just don't think I trust it, yet.
