I as have many others, lost root on the JB leak.Whatever the reason, we're all itching to get root back. So lets get it done.

I'm starting a bounty for whoever can get us root on this leak, as it will also benefit us in the way that we can jump back to this kernel and root it using the exploit found when the official OTA rolls around.

I'm putting down $90 for whoever can get a root exploit for the leak.

Any others willing to put down their money?


PLEDGED:

Bytecode - $90
wacocapretto - $20
johnpaul530 - $10
Whipping_Post+1 - $10

This is a good idea except for when they do release the final build of jb, it is going to be on a jb kernel and NOT on a ics kernel.

The leaked update will get an OTA to the official Jellybean. It HAS to.

The secure version won't increase again.

If a root method is discovered for the official or even leaked 4.1.2 update we can make it work no matter how they patched it as long as we have the update file from the leak to official.

1. Fastboot flash 6.16.211 system.img and preinstall.img
2. Sideload Leak Jellybean 4.1.2.
3. Root on 4.1.2 (if we get an exploit)
4. Protect Root.
5. Sideload OTA Update from the Leak.

So no, this is not a worthless gesture.

I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to linux and exploits (and it's about to show lol) but I was curious about something...

Why wouldn't simply copying files from a rooted JB maxx to say a non-rooted maxx hd that came with JB pre-installed work, or flashing the ics kernel, system.img, preinstall.img, etc... or something along those lines onto the maxx hd?

We can't copy files to the /system(where root is) of a phone without root access. So you couldn't copy existing files from a rooted phones system to an uprooted phones system as there is no way to get access to it.

We can't flash one phones fastboot files to another as they have different hardware, therefore different drivers and libs. What drivers and libs are compatible with one phones hardware is incompatible with another's. Sometimes a manufacturer makes builds that can run on multiple phones, such as Moto having the exact same builds for the Razr and D4. Because they are very close in hardware. Also files need to be signed for a certain partition and for certain phones and the Razr signature wouldn't work on the HD.

Ask as many questions as you want.

Loosing root would suck. If i were you I would complain to Verizon and get a replacement. Tell them it reboots everytime you make a call. I did that with Tmobile with my old Mytouch 4g worked like a charm :)

VZW says I'm out of warranty. Moto thinks I'm still rooted. So they won't give me any service. Besides we still need a root exploit if somebody really screws up and has to fastboot and apply update in recovery.

I am fortunate enough to replace my phone for other problems other than being an idiot and losing my root. But, I know how I felt when I realized the loss of some pretty simple tweaks that root gave me. From my searches, there seems to be some promise out there, we just need to let these brilliant minds know they have an incentive. I throw my $10 in the pot to give everyone their phones back that lost root going to the jellybean leak.

If you have one of the new RAZR family released in the last half of of 2012, rerooting after JB update is simple and is outlined in my thread "Successful JB Root for Motorola Users"; however if you have one of the original RAZR family, then you're out of luck until an exploit is found.

My $10 goes in as well.

that's twice you have posted in the wrong forum. we all know about jb root for the razr hd and its nothing new as you claim... but this is an og razr forum hence the name droid razr not droid razr hd.

anyway put me down for $10 more $20 total..

Considering the forum app I'm using doesn't list whether this is an original RAZR thread or not, I'll dismiss your ignorant comment for what it was... ignorance. Next time you want to attempt to criticize someone, how bout acting like the mature adult you're obviously not and being respectful, instead of condescending.

you're welcome, anytime buddy. I'm not a mature adult so why would I act like one? and all i was getting at was that you keep posting in the wrong forum and I don't want someone to try and use your methods of rooting jb for razr hd on their oj razr and brick because you don't have time to post in the right forums. There is a reason they have forums separated for each phone its so people don't get confused and try to flash their phones with the wrong thing. Also I wasn't trying to be a d!ck I was just pointing out that you keep posting in the oj forums and it might confuse some people. Anyway this isn't the place for this kind of bickering.
