(Bin4ry Method) Root Many Android Devices updated on 13.10.2012

Android Modding and ROM discussion - forum.dailymobile.se
Bin4ry made a small script which is able to root ICS/JB phones. It uses a remount timing issue in Androids "adb restore" service.

So normally it should work on nearly all ICS/JB devices, for some it won't but the idea may work in a slightly modded version

There is a case for Xperia T and Xperia S,P etc. phones, this phones run ICS but don't have android's native restore with adb, Sony has added a own custom "Backup&Restore" app, the script handles this cases too, just choose the correct option!

How-To:

1.) Download attached file.

2.) Extract it using 7zip

3.) Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions!

Xperia phones = Normal mode

Sony Tablet and similar = Special mode

Updates:

Updated to v2 windows&linux! (thanks kamistral for the Unix port  )

Updated to v3 (no unix script included yet, sorry no time!) - Included Sony Tablet S mode  thanks WonderEkin for helping me out there!

Updated to v4 - On many requests i added a unroot option

Updated to v5 - Other renamed to Normal, Xperia T integrated to Normal-Mode, adjusted wait-for-device time to atleast 10 seconds etc...

Updated to v6 - Made it even more simple  Checks itself for Xperia S, P etc etc and switches modes automatically. So only 3 modes left: Normal, Tablet S and unroot.

Updated to v7 - Fixed some scripting errors & added some more output!

Updated to v8 - Fixed very very stupid scripting error!

Updated to v9 - Fixed another bug (thanks maxrfon) & Added automatic stat for Backup&Restore on special Sony devices like LT26,LT22 ...

Updated to v10 - Just updated Superuser app and su binary

Updated to v11 - Added sync to Special mode, thanks to smokey_joe

Updated to v12 - Added ric for Xperia T, device will not reboot anymore on system remount + Full Unix script (thanks codeworkx for port)

Updated to v13 - Fixed selfmade bugs -.-

Updated to v14 - Fixed several Unix bugs, added support for more devices with RIC, no more reboot issues on this devices after remounting system partition to RW

Updated to v14_2 - Just a fix for Unix SH script (thanks to shadyabhi)

Updated to v15 - Fixed "lagging devices", just re-root a lagging device and it will be fine

Notice:

Normal Mode will not wipe any other data, dont worry!

Special Mode CAN wipe your data, Rollback SHOULD restore, but to be sure backup you data somehow!

Confirmed devices:

Sony Xperia : S, T, P , Acro S, Ion , Tipo , Tablet S, Go, Sola, U

Google: Nexus 7 [UK Firmware] (thanks Paul O'Brien for test) [seems some firmwares to work and some don't, as i dont have this device myself i would appreciate reports with FW-versions]
