A2.3.5 temproot

This is a discussion on A2.3.5 temproot within the Meizu M9 Rooting & Modding forums, part of the Meizu M9 category; Just wanted a quick summary: what can we do after temprooting?...

    For a quick outline see the first post, you can also now run LBE Privacy Guard, also on boot, to selectively control the permissions of every app on the phone - including system apps.

    Titanium backup program back ups all the apps You have, all data, saves and configurations , which is not possible without temproot/root. Making it a lot easier to re-flash FW , or just install a new one. When after installations it takes only few minutes to get everything back and working

    If you search the market with the keyword "root" you'll find many apps that need su rights, some of these also need read/write access to the system, so sadly we can't use those. The few that I use make it worth doing for me. All temproot does is open up more access to the system, similar to the 'run as administrator' options on a pc.

    Full root privileges, on the other hand, give the user read/write access to the system files, allowing removal or replacement of system applications, along with modification of almost every aspect of the ui.

    An unlocked bootloader allows for replacement of the entire os including the kernel.

    All we have so far are su privileges, with no access to the system, but even this is very useful in terms of taking control of how the system behaves.

    SU and Busybox are unix/linux files that are not generally included in Android, but necessary for apps that require su access to run, this is why these temproot exploits install them to a temporary filesystem they create in the phone's RAM. As no changes can be made to the /system partition without full root (a.k.a. NAND unlock), these files cease to exist on the phone when you reboot.

    Links Updated again!

    m9.r00t.apk is now in V.1.1.2 (now the final version, probably )
    Changes:

    -service no longer runs continually in background, it just applies the exploit and then terminates.
    -app now has an Unr00t button.
    -fixes to the notifications.

    Thanks again "Mr.Bond"!

    Edit: I've been told that the exploit is not zergrush, but the "levitator" exploit for PowerVR SGX chipset. This likely explains why the screen switches off during boot (you can either blip the home button to re-awaken it, or just wait until the phone completes the boot process).

    when you say it refuses to install, are you trying to install it separately? If so, don't bother, as it comes as part of the temproot package.

    It depends on which package you're using, if you're going the ADB route, then there is no app as such, but if you're using the m9.r00t.apk - the app should be in with the rest of you're apps on the phone.

    The reason that BusyBox wouldn't install separately is that these exploits don't give you permission to install anything to the /system partition, what they do is create a pretend /system partition in the phone's RAM known as a temporary file-system. The busybox installer on the market is for use with fully rooted devices.

    So which package are you using?

    Sorry, I misread your post, you were asking where BusyBox was installed

    From what I can see, it should be in a tempfs - /system/xbin, but this is not the 'real' /system/xbin directory, so some apps that look for it will not see it as they have been designed for fully rooted phones.

    I tried both

    1) After installed zergRush normally, I mounted the SD Card and tried to run Titanium Backup. It said can't access SU. Please make sure that you have rooted your ROM. (ps. translated from Chinese message).

    2) Then I tried to run m9.r00t and got the following message after pressed "Get r00t"
    running from uid 0...
    mount /system/xbin to memory...
    installing busybox and su...
    ppos, something wrong

    Did you restart before trying m9.r00t? One may be causing a conflict with the other.

    If m9.r00t say "running from uid 0", exploit works fine. Try to reboot phone and run TB again.

    Yes, I did.

    It said "Now you have root right. Serivce stopped", however, I can get root right when running Titanium Backup.

    I have SuperUser before. Maybe, I should remove all related apps and retry again to see if SuperUser can be installled or not.
