    Root V2 w/recovory

    I am curious who has tried this and if there are any negatives on doing this? are we still having to downgrade firmware. i am new to adb and was hoping for some help. i am researching right now?

    I'm in the same boat...experienced Linux user but new to android. O think the latest root uses the current firmware version.

    So once u root and flash recovery, is it possible to go back to stock if needed for some reason?

    Where do we put these files? actually in the platform-tools folder? i am asuming push means to transfer to ur device.




    Now, you will need to push the misc.img, busybox, and psneuter by using the following below commands:
    • Adb push psneuter /data/local/
    • Adb push busybox/data/local
    • Adb push misc.img/data/local
    • Adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    • Adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox

    i ended up making a folder for exploits. copy the directory name for example C:\Users\steven\Desktop\exploits and on adb type cd then paste your directory. so mine looked like this
    cd C:\Users\steven\Desktop\exploits
    or you can unzip the files to your adb folder but i couldnt get that to work

    I rooted today. took me about 3 hours front to back, but I probably wasted at least an hour and a half by speeding throught eh directions and having to go back when it didn't work right (I flashed the wrong image during Step #4) but it ended up working out and I am rooted & loving it!
