platform-tools folder is created as soon as you install it using the download manager. It uses to be at the same level of the tools folder (no way you can change that during the install so, it should be there). The only suggestion I have is to use the manager again, remove it to then download again the folder. Use to be in the top of the list that shows in ...

(Just something you can try) I know what happened to you can be frustrating. It happened to me once when I accidentally uninstalled an android required app. You can try flashing a GApps zip package. That worked for me.

Changing the System font is may be an option without root. A quick Google Search will help with that. As for removing (or "deleting" as you put it) System Apps, you must have root, this I can not stress enough. Like @Frank said in the comments, you can disable and app, but this is still on your System and it still takes space. My advice to you: If ...

Your original rooting method will work. The bootloader is still unlockable on the replacement devices, just as it was on the original ones. The fact that it is running a newer version of Android doesn't really have any meaningful bearing on this since SuperSU is still actively developed to ensure compatibility with newer Android builds.

What does Flashtool do? Your CPU is made by a chinese company called MediaTek and they have released a tool to flash stuff on devices that use their chip called SP Flashtool. So this tool does what it says. It flashes data onto your phone, and where and what data is flashed is determined by the scatter file your provide(where) and the files you open in ...

The process of rooting your tablet shouldn't affect the performance. However, any apps that are installed when rooting can affect the performance. SuperUser is a very common and popular app that is used when rooting and I have not seen any performance impact when installing SU on Motorola and Samsung devices (100+ devices). Based on the junk that the ...

Custom recovery and super user is all that is required. There is no need to flash a custom kernel for root. Also twrp 2.8.6 will work with the m preview but if you want to run a rooted m preview I suggest you download a rooted version from Xda. I suggest doing that way just so you will run into less issues. Make sure you read the posts on Xda forums and if ...

SELinux depends upon labels to match actions and policies. Labels determine what is allowed. Sockets, files, and processes all have labels in SELinux. SELinux decisions are based fundamentally on labels assigned to these objects and the policy defining how they may interact. In SELinux, a label takes the form: user:role:type:mls_level, where the type is the ...

You may find stock firmware for your model on SamMobile from this link. This site is also a good source for firmware for most Samsung Mobiles. Just search for your model here. Do take note however that you have to register for a free account before you can start downloading. Optionally, upgrade to a premium account faster download speed.

You just have to add the su binary and superuser app to manage root so how to do this ? This can be achieved by exploiting some vulnerability in the system so you can execute the script that adds su binary to /system and the superuser app to the desired place.that's how all the rooting tools and app work

If you can't root your phone because your on Mac OS X, try running a virtual machine that is running windows and root your phone from there. (I Personally don't have a Mac so am not 100% sure this will work, this is only a suggestion)

Rooting MTK based 'China' phones using SP Flash Tool. I've tested this on my Ubuntu 14.04 laptop by rooting a Lenovo P780. First of all, install libusb-dev pacakage: apt-get install libusb-dev Now you need to download SP Flash Tool v5 from here. Assuming it is downloaded to your Downloads directory extract it's content: cd Downloads unzip ...

Simply rooting your phone won't make it run faster. You can use root access to tweak your phone to run faster. Here I'll make a short list of how tos By removing bloatwares Changing and customizing CPU governors and I/O scheduler Flashing custom roms or kernels Editing System configuration files such as build.prop etc. You can find many more ways to ...

There are several ways that having root may improve performance. But just rooting won't make a phone faster. One common thing to do with a rooted phone is to remove "bloat" apps. These are apps that are installed by default. In recent versions of android, you can "freeze" or "Turn Off" more built-in apps, making root less of a requirement for de-bloating. ...

Rooting your device does not make it "faster". It allows you to remove pre-installed "bloatware" that is pushed by manufacturers and their partners. Adittionally rooting permits you to remove, deactivate non-essential process and functions that free up ram as well. Rooting also allows you to tweak your device performance through init.d scripts custom kernels ...

I think Link2SD could help you. It allows you to move apps to SD and link them so the system "thinks" they are still on your device's internal storage. I would give a try.

A rooted system is a system that has a working su binary, that is, one that allows the user and/or processes to attain full root rights. So, in order to root a device, you "just" need to get that binary in place, and you're done. (In practice, it's not as simple; most superuser applications ship with a daemon that is actually responsible for giving apps root ...

Sorry to give you an un-understandable answer, my bad, and though I completely messed it and gave wrong guidelines. Sorry but it is as most of the users here How does rooting work? it is indeed installing su bianaries and then supersu.apk and giving them each certain privileges. Also that su binaries does all the work itself. You would just need a windows ...

Ahh, since you have no knowledge regarding rooting and all I'll just explain in the simplest form. Imagine that you have bought a laptop from HP which Congress preloaded with a windows installation and some pre-stuff, I assume that a normal person would't be bothered by it and the extra useless stuff they install on your laptop. They prevent you from ...

Status 6 often refers to a problem within the updater script. Be sure to save it in unix format. I mostly use notepad++ to edit those files. notepad++ > edit > EOL conversion > UNIX format Also make sure there is an empty line on the end of the script. So if the script has 112 lines, the 113 should be empty. Status 7 means that the rom is incompatible ...

May be your phone is bricked. Try downloading the StockRom or some CustomRom that is compatible to your phone and flash it. This might help you. If you are wandering about all these terms Bricked, StockRom, CustomRom and flash. Here is a good article that might help you to understand.

You performed your recovery flash semi-correctly. When you flash recovery to Samsung devices, Galaxy tabs to be more specific, you first need to uncheck/disable the auto restart function in Odin. When the recovery flash is complete [res-ok] , disconnect the tab and manually force reboot to Recovery. Then reboot as normal, otherwise the OS re-writes the ...
