[cp_youtube id="zdmtkHkrgLE" points="15"]


In this episode, we will learn how to root an Android based phone.

Jailbreaking your phone is now legal in the US

COMMANDS:
adb devices (This should list a device as a long number. If it doesnt something is wrong.)
adb push c:\droid2root\rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp
adb shell
cd /data/local/tmp
chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin (Be patient here. When finished it will return you to c:\droid2root)
adb devices
adb shell (you should now see a # instead of a $)
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
exit
adb push c:\droid2root\Superuser.apk /system/app
adb push c:\droid2root\su /system/bin
adb push c:\droid2root\busybox /system/bin
adb shell
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox

mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
rm /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
