Yes sorry took me so long, wasn't around much yesterday or today, trying to work on the D3 and building a deck which is taking a lot of my time presetnly, which I had more time but you all know how it works..

I'll also do my best to donate once Rooted. Probably not 50.. but 20-30.
Interesting stuff. I wonder if those same vulnerabilities exist in the android build of the linux kernel. One appears pretty easy to use to gain access to read and write any part of kernel memory. I dont know nearly enough on linux to figure out how to exploit this to gain root but it is listed as an exploit that could lead to gaining privileges.
sent it to you this morning woody at 7something am.
Name is sapan.
Yea agreed. I need to setup my environment correctly and check everything out. Not a developer at heart though which is my biggest fail
I think a lot of developing the rooting process is a combination of luck and skill. You throw every trick you have in your bag at something and hope something works or reveals a next step to try. The D1 got rooted when a patch came out and it was realized that a root package of the same size as the update could replace the update. Teamwork comes into play too. You find one little thing and share it hoping someone else can take it further. It never ceases to amaze me that eventually the doors do get unlocked. Maybe the vendors are just hoping that it takes long enough that the device has been replaced with the next one. They must know their devices will be rooted. Why not just leave them open and say, as they do, that if you alter things you get no warranty, don't come calling us.
edit: ps - Woody, you done yet?
Good luck woody

I would even argue that locking bootloaders is a security problem for all users. Locked bootloaders make legitimate users have to resort to finding exploits and security holes in the OS as the only way to get root. These exploits can then be used by people with more malicious intent to write malware, utilizing these exploits against users. If they would just unlock the bootloaders we wouldnt have to write viruses just to gain access to the devices we purchased.
