Root XT910 Jelly Bean
Root XT910 Jelly Bean (EASY way)
I apologize if this has already been mentioned elsewhere, I did skim through the main posts and perform a search for the general topic. This root method is basicly just djrbliss' over @ droidrzr.com except it was massively simplified by another user named marty45714. So essentially this is technically now a method to root xt910 using windows! And its SUPER simple, especially for non Linux users like myself. Here is a direct quote of his post:
I spent the weekend working on something really lightweight to get this done easily, and I've finally got it working and ready.
Using Oracle VirtualBox with a Tiny Core Linux VM, I've managed to get this down to a 46 MB download.
Everything is automatic... helps the user get connected to SMB, then helps with getting connected with USB debugging before running the exploit.
I spent most of the entire weekend tweaking with Tiny Core Linux to get this ready. Please share. Where's the best place to start a new thread to get the word out about this?
[EDIT: link is broken, just copy/paste link from step 2, its the same
Here are the steps:
1) Install Sun VirtualBox on your Windows PC.
2) Download the VirtualBox .ova file here:
3) Import the .ova file into VirtualBox. (Click "File" then "Import Appliance".)
4) Start the imported VM in VirtualBox (Click the big "Start" Button. It has a green arrow icon.)
5) Follow the instructions on the Linux console."
I also apologize for not coding links etc, I am not an advanced forum user. I just really wanted to share this with anyone who may not have come across this as of yet. If any of you need any further assistance I can try to help as I have successfully used this method and I know absolutely nothing about linux. Enjoy!
