NEC - NEC Terrain: ADB/CDC Serial Driver, 3e Recovery Password, and Root
NEC Terrain: ADB/CDC Serial Driver, 3e Recovery Password, and Root
Those of you who are trying to root the NEC Terrain, I've slapped together an ADB driver from the NEC NE-103T to help you out. Basically, I just modified the INF file. Really, we're supposed to use driver version number NA002 with the Terrain but I could only find NA001. It works though and you can get ADB shell etc. Despite the ADB access, I was unsuccessful at rooting the NEC Terrain with SuperOneClick and Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry etc. Hopefully, posting these drivers here will help someone else in cyberspace develop a feasible root method.
Here's what the zip file contains:
- Obviously the modified ADB driver for NEC Terrain use
- Not sure if this is correct but I also applied the ADB driver to the CDC Serial Driver and Windows didn't have a problem.
Here's what I need:
- Root Method
- Default Recovery Password - NEC password protected recovery mode. :-/
(Sigh), they weren't kidding when they said this phone was secure! I know this is not going to be a popular phone but dang it, I love blackberry keyboard-style Android phones and I really need a decent rooted phone to replace my aging Motorola Pro/Pro+.
tl;dr - I'm providing the missing drivers for the NEC Terrain. Someone please find a way to root it cause I've tried everything! Also, I'm looking for the default password to use Android Recovery 3e.
