(Bin4ry Method) Root Many Android Devices updated on 13.10.2012

Android Modding and ROM discussion -
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!


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


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


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!
