  3. Enable USB debugging on the device
    • Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging
  4. Boot the device in fastboot mode.

Rooting HTC Dream

Posted: May 7, 2010 in GSM Info

Rooting HTC Dream/G1/T-Mobile G1

Downgrading from RC30/RC9 and up

  1. Format your phone’s SD card to FAT32 mode:
    • Hook your phone up to your computer using a USB cable and then wait for the notification to show up in your title bar of your phone.
    • Click the notification, and then click “Mount”.
    • A new removable disk should show up on your computer. Right click it and select Format, and select FAT32 as the file system type.
  2. Download and unzip the RC29 or RC7 image file. Copy the DREAIMG.nbh file to the SD card. (RC29 for US, RC7 is for UK)
  3. Turn the device power off.
  4. Hold Camera button, and press Power button to entry bootloader mode. You should see a gray/white screen with instructions to flash your phone with the update on your SD card. If you don’t see that, make sure you followed the instructions properly.
  5. As per the on-screen instructions, press the Power button to start upgrade procedure. DO NOT DO ANYTHING TO INTERRUPT THIS PROCESS.
  6. After it is finished, restart your phone by pressing the trackball button (“action button”) and then press Call, Menu and End simultaneously.

At the end of this process, you’ll now be running a build old enough to have the exploit we need to get root. Continue on with the next section.

Rooting RC29 and Lower

On RC29 phones and lower, a huge exploit existed where anything you typed into your keyboard was also being run in a hidden console with root permissions.

  1. Download recovery.img and copy it to your SD card (see the previous section on how to copy from your computer to your Phone’s SD card).
  2. Download the Hard SPL and copy the zip file to the SD card.
  3. All files must be on the root of your SD card.
  4. Restart your phone. Wait for your phone to start up fully and show the home screen.
  5. After your phone starts up, type “telnetd” and press enter. (Yes, it will start up a contact search, don’t worry. Just type it.)
  6. Download an Android “Telnet” application from the Market and connect to localhost.
  7. If you connect successfully, you will have a root prompt “#”.
  8. Type the following into Telnet (these commands will give you root access easier in the future):
    • mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    • cd sdcard
    • flash_image recovery recovery.img
    • cat recovery.img > /system/recovery.img

Now you have root!

Next steps

Whether you gained root using RC29 or the downgrade method, the next steps are highly recommended. You will want to apply “Hard SPL” to your phone. HardSPL is what will allow you to apply flash images from other regions (like UK on US phones, and vice versa), create full backups of your phone, install the latest build from the Android source, and usually resurrect your phone if it is “bricked”. You have already downloaded the file to your SD card, so now you can apply it.

  1. Power off your phone.
  2. Start up in recovery mode by holding home and pressing power.
  3. You will now enter recovery mode. You should see an exclamation.
  4. If you do not see a menu on screen, press Alt-L to show the menu.
  5. Press Alt-S to apply the update from the SD card.
  6. After the update is complete, hold Home and press Back to restart.

Android Phones – Root

Posted: May 7, 2010 in GSM Info

Android Root – All Questions answered here

|All Info’s are collected From all over the Internet |

I ll post here all info about Rooting Android phones. how to upgrade rooted rom. overall everything about Android Phones rooting.

You never know
The good thing about having root is you can go back if you want. The same is not true of not having root. We do not know what steps Google/Tmobile will take to rid the end users of root in the future. For all we know the next OTA will remove the keys that allows the RC29 downgrade method to work and you could be stuck on a non rooted G1 forever. If you have root and for some reason it does not work for you there is always the option of going back.

What Does Root Give Me?

  1. Full control over your system
  2. Ability to alter system files. You can replace many parts of the “Android Core” with this including:
    • Themes
    • Core apps (maps, calendar, clock etc)
    • Recovery image
    • Bootloader
    • Toolbox (linux binary that lets you execute simple linux commands like “ls”) can be replaced with Busybox (slightly better option)
    • Boot images
    • Add linux binaries
  3. Run special apps that need more control over the system
    • SuperUser (lets you approve or deny the use of root access to any program)
    • Task Manager For Root (Lets you kill apps that you otherwise could not kill)
    • Tether apps (like the one found at [])
    • <there are more but I cannot think of any right now>
  4. Backup your system
    • You can make a folder on your sdcard and backup all of your .apk files to your sdcard (helps if an author decides to “upgrade” you to a version that requires you to pay to use the version you just had)
  5. Relocate your (browser/maps/market) cache to your /sdcard
  6. Relocate your installed applications to your /sdcard
  7. Reboot your phone from the terminal app easily (su <enter> reboot <enter>)

What Do I Lose Having Root

  1. The ability to accept OTA updates (well, you can but you would lose root, so its been made so they get denied)
  2. The sense that someone else controls your phone
  3. The need to sit in an Android chat channel asking how to get root
  4. The need for a stupid useless “File Manager” that lets you see filenames but almost nothing else.
  5. The ability to have a knowledgeable conversation with a T-Mobile rep about your phone. (Ask one of them to spell root for you)

doesn’t matter it uses Single or dual Engine concept, or uses RAP3xx or RAPIDO.
if the phone doesn’t have PM120 section or/and Protected PM308 section, so it uses Security Level 1 type protection.
we can Unlock them with many tools that available on the market, even with the free software

some misjudge by saying 5310, 6210s, E71, and so on, with saying they’re all SL2 phones, BUT the phone DOES NOT have protected PM308 Section.
so in my opinion, it still SL1 Phones with some ekstra security in PM120 Section. this type are what we called BB5+ Class type.
Unlocking them is supported with many tools that available on the market.
you can do free, or some tool still charge with credits.

what so called BB5+ type phones:
3120c RM-364 RAP3GS V2.0
5610 RM-242 RAP3GS
N81 8GB
N95 8GB

================================================== =====

SL2 Phones:
SL2 => it’s all kind of BB5 Phones with Security Level 2 type phones (7210c, 5800, 5220, and so on…)
doesn’t matter it uses Single or dual Engine concept, or uses RAP3xx or RAPIDO.
if the phone has have PM120 section or/and Protected PM308 section, so it uses Security Level 2 type protection.

It’s the Type of SL2 Phones with Protected Application Security Level 2:
3600s based on RAPS_V3.03-PA_SL2 CPU
5220 based on RAPS_V3.03-PA_SL2 CPU
6600f RM-325 based on RAP3GS_V3.02-PA_SL2 CPU
6600s RM-414 based on RAP3GS_V3.02-PA_SL2 CPU
7210s based on RAPS_V3.03-PA_SL2 CPU
7310s based on RAPS_V3.03-PA_SL2 CPU / RM-378 RAP3GS V23.1
7610s based on RAPS_V3.03-PA_SL2 CPU

That explain many of available tools in the market can NOT unlock them (except genie as i know), cause they have Protected PM308 Section that can’t be write in Local Mode.
BUT Rebuild Certificate (use ask-rpl services) is Supported.
All doing right 100% correctly.

================================================== =====

what so called “SL3” Phones:
SL3 => it’s all kind of BB5 Phones with Security Level 2 type phones.
doesn’t matter it uses Single or dual Engine concept, or uses RAP3xx or RAPIDO.
if the phone have PM120 section or/and Protected PM308 section, and protected firmware that makes any available tool in the market (except genie is probably supported) to Rebuild simlock data and simlock key data to the phones

what so called SL3 type phones:
* 3600s RM-352 – MCU SW 56.26
* 5310 RM-303 – MCU SW 58.58, MCU SW 59.42. RAPS V3.01
* 6300 RM-217 – MCU SW 57.20
* 6500c RM-265 – MCU SW 59.45 RAP3GS V2.0
* 6500s RM-240 – MCU SW 59.60 RAP3GS
* 5130c RM-495 ALL version RAPS_V3.03-PA

That explain many of available tools in the market can NOT unlock them (except DM3 as i know), cause they have Protected PM308 Section that can’t be write in Flash Mode.
and Rebuild Certificate (use ask-rpl services) is doing the wrong way, so i prefer to say NOT Supported.
in case you’ve got a contact service phone with corrupted simlock, don’t buy ask rpl services so hurry cause no tools available to rebuild the whole certificate corretcly !!
