Howto: Full root on Samsung Galaxy

July 31st, 2009

Here my howto for rooting the Galaxy

I wrote two version. A small&quick and a long explaining. If you have trouble with the quick, read the long/full version!

Aug 1:
- update to release 0.2d for recovery image
- nandroid backup

Don’t forget the backup before you do these steps!!!

WARNING: All doing on your own risk!!! If you did not understand what the commands do, do nothing! Beware, if you flash the flase image you got a stylish brick!

Small version:

a) Download, flash new recovery image and boot in recovery mode
the lastest image that i use: link.
open PC-Shell and type: fastboot flash recovery recovery-gal_rel_0_2d.img
put short off battery, press volume_down+call+power for 5sec

Info: The new gui is useless today.

b) backup
open PC-Shell and type: adb shell
type: backup

c) copy the new su
open PC-Shell and type: adb shell
copy&paste these commands:
mount -o rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
cd /system/bin
cat sh > su
chmod 6755 su

d) reboot and test
Download “OverclockWidget(need Root)” and start it. The app check on start if you root, when not it show you.

Final: Write a comment and look at my sponsors.

(The backup is stored in /sdcard. This directory is the 7gb partion on your phone and not the microsd-card (located on /sdcard/sd). If you want the backup outside your mobile phone, reboot, start in normal boot, let access your PC to the mobile phone with the usb mass storage driver, copy the files from the nandroid directory, reboot in recovery mode)

    Leaving su binary without password is a big vulnerablity. Anyway to install Superuser on the galaxy?

  4. Rob says:

    Is there a pre-rooted rom we could install after using to flash the recovery image? Or would that tool even flash the recovery on the galaxy?

    Is it just me or is ADB version 1.0.25 not working for the Galaxy anymore?
