Download the zip to your computer, boot up the phone in normal mode (just press the Power on button when turned off - no bootloader, fastboot or anything like that) and connect it to the computer via USB. The phone memory that opens up on your computer is where you should put it. It really doesn't matter the exact location, as long you can access it later in ...

This might sound crazy, and I do not recommend anyone try it, but... I had tried cleaning the female charging port on the tablet with alcohol and q-tips and had no luck. I decided to use the tip of a mechanical pencil (metal tip) to scrape the contacts to see if they had build up. I put the metal tip in to scuff them up and (since the tablet was on), a ...

Well, I'll be damned. It seems that Google Now refuses to run on a rooted device, but it just doesn't say so. The vendor had installed an app to enable rooting of the device. I'd played around with it, but root access was disabled after the first upgrade of MiUI. I didn't really miss root access, to be honest, so it let it be. Ziggo (my cable TV ...

I think you should be able to use adb on your phone while in recovery. adb devices should show something along the lines of YOUR_DEVICE recovery. Once you have access to your device in recovery, you can mount the data partition using adb shell busybox mount /data and then you can use adb pull to pull data from the data partition, for example: adb pull ...

You don't need a custom ROM to get root. Geohot's towelroot works for all S4 variants except your I9500 which has a different chipset. So if your firmware is I9500XXUFNB3 or older, then try: 1) Go and Download the " philz_touch_6.12.8-i9500.tar.md5 " located on this website http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_Advanced_Edition/i9500 2) Download and extract ...

Note: Techicnally you probably couled use a FAT32 partition but I've had issues on several devices. For Link2SD you need 2 partitions: 1) FAT32 this is your file storage, photos, media etc. 2) EXT3 (Or EXT2 or EXT4, but 3 has always worked for me) partition. This is the part this will be recognised as new 'internal memory'. There is a full tutorial on ...

It seems that you have installed the wrong recovery and your devices is semi-bricked (it's not over for him yet). You should: 1-Download the correct firmware blob from the official ASUS site 2-Boot your tablet into recovery and then type on a computer with the device connected adb reboot bootloader 3-Your tablet should now receive fastboot commands even ...

Official OTA's from HTC could only be installed if you posses the stock recovery. You can download the right one for you from XDA here. When you have downloaded it you can just flash it by typing this (with your phone connected in fastboot mode): fastboot flash recovery path/to/recovery.img Disclaimer: Probably the update won't work if you have a custom ...

Manufacturer OTAs can only be flashed using the recovery that came with your device, which is (more often than not) 3e recovery. I would recommend that you find a stock recovery.img, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img, then apply the OTA.

Yesterday I tried with the HowTo (How do I root my Nexus 7?) and now I have a rooted Nexus 7! Well, I discovered, the "oem unlock" is not necessary, since the device was already unlocked... :) Thank you all for your help! Greetings Luca, with a rooted Nexus! :)

It is legitimate. (Or as legitimate as an exploit can be. It isn't malware and if used properly has little chance of doing damage itself.) Obviously the usual cautions apply with rooting any device. You may void your warranty. Be sure to read through the forums at xda or other guides to be sure how and what can be recovered if something goes wrong because ...

Yes, you can root it without installing a custom ROM. The rooting instructions on this site just tell you to install a custom recovery, which can install su for you.

You can! You just need to backup your data! Which phone are using? brand? In sony there is a app called backup and restore, by backing up your data you can get back your data incase if you lose it!! I think there is a way not losing data while rooting your phone.
