    Default [HOW TO] Root your Android device the easy way !!!





    All Credits go to : @jivy26 & @DooMLoRD from XDADevelopers.com

    I recently got a new Samsung Galaxy Star 2, and was wanting to get it rooted so that I have superuser privileges. Spent a while looking for the best and safest way to ROOT your android devce and this was the best way found :-


    How to root by using DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit. (ZergRush Exploit) (Windows)

    Not working for KK6 2.3.6
    Download the "DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit v3.0" package from HERE and extract it to a directory on your hard drive using WinZip or a similar program.
    You need to have the USB drivers for SGH-I777 installed on your computer. (It will be "Samsung USB Driver for Mobile Phones" in Control Panel\Uninstall Programs.) Download and install the latest drivers from HERE. (x86 and x64)
    Both USB Debugging (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development) and Unknown Sources (Menu\Settings\Applications) should be enabled on your phone.
    Increase the screen timeout on your phone to 10 minutes. (Menu\Settings\Display\Screen Timeout) Remember to set it back to a shorter interval after you are done rooting.
    Connect the USB cable to the phone and the computer. Go to the directory where you extracted the package and execute "runme.bat".
    The toolkit will open a command prompt window where you will see the progress of the rooting process. It takes between 5 and 10 minutes for the process to complete.
    Success. You're rooted.
    Code:

    Default Re: [HOW TO] Root your HTC Android device VIA Swtch OFF method!!!





    so lets get start


    first this is working on this models:
    HTC Sensation
    HTC Sensation XE
    htc Evo 3d
    htc Thunderbolt
    htc HD [not sure]
    htc HD2 [not sure]
    HTC Droid Incredible 2
    almost all HTC devices


    1. first you will have to download and instal this on your pc
    While installing this drivers the phone should be unplugged and also if you have already installed HTC sync you should uninstall before you try to install the drivers
    2. go to http://revolutionary.io/ cz we will use this tool from here to make s-off and this will allow to make permanent root to your phone. So once you have entered on the revolutionary scroll down and go to "DOWNLOAD FOR WINDOWS" (blue letters)
    -when you click on download for windows the window will popup and download will start automatically
    -minimize the browser do not close because later we will have to fill in the fields for beta key
    3. Now go to downloaded file from revolutionary web site
    -the file should be in zip extension (like this revolutionary-0.4pre4.zip)
    -extract any where
    - you will get folder with 6 files in side
    4. Now take your phone and plug in to your PC. Make sure that is in "charging only" mod
    -go to settings/applications/development/ and check USB debugging
    5. Go back to your PC and open the folder downloaded from revolutionary
    -right click on revolutionary.exe and run as administrator
    the program will run and after few moments it will find your phone with all information about it
    at the end it will ask you "enter beta key_"
    above this you will see your phones serial number
    -leave the program open and go back to revolutionary web site to fill the fields in the window
    it should look like this

    Beta key

    Run the Revolutionary utility; that will give you all the information needed to fill in the form below.
    Your operating system:
    Your device:
    HBOOT version:
    Serial number:

    Generate


    -after filling/chose your device hit "generate" and other window will popup with your beta key
    -copy the key

    6. once you have copied the key go back to revolutionary program that you have left working on your desktop and write the beta key and press enter
    -program will start working and after few minutes (when its done ) program will ask you do you want to download and install flash clockworkmod recovery (Y/n)_

    phone will boot up in Hboot mod (Bootloader screen) and you will see that your phone is S-OFF now




    that is it you have s-offed your phone

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    now if you want to continue and root your phone permanently without loosing any data do not close any thing but continue with this steps bellow


    1. Go back to revolutionary program
    -this text should be last "do you want to download and install flash clockworkmod recovery (Y/n)_"
    -before you press "Y" go to control panel on your pc and disable firewall
    -once you have disable firewall press "Y" in revolutionary program
    when the program finish with downloading and installing in some cases (depends on your phone model) in program will write Done and in other case (like with my HTC Sensation XE)program when is finish with downloading and installing just close by hes own
    Now phone should boot in HBoot mode

    2. Using volume buttons you can navigate up or down and power button is ok/enter button
    -navigate to RECOVERY press pow button
    HTC boot screen will appear (like when phone is regular booting) and after few seconds Revolutionary Clockwork mod screen will appear
    -now navigate to mounts and storage press pow button,mount USB storage and on your pc phone will mount your sd card
    3.On your PC you will have mounted SD card (removable disk)
    -download this file with zip extension
    -copy this file as it is on root folder of your mounted SD card (do not unzip the file)
    -close and eject your SD card
    4.once you have paste the downloaded zip file to your SD card pick up the phone and select un-mount,press back button once and in the main screen scroll to "install zip from your sd card"
    press pow button,chose zip from SD card press pow button and it will open your SD card
    -chose the zip file that you have pasted earlier press pow button than go to YES-install /the name of the zip file/.zip


    so that is it guys your phone is permanently rooted without losing any data



    NOTE:ON my Sensation XE while installation of zip file i was getting error: "installing aborted"
    So if you also have this error try repeating step 4 for 3 times to achieve root. Some users are getting installation aborted but on third attempt rooted successfully

    Drivers

    Big thanks to @matrix_skopje for the info and tutorial for this method of ROOTING



    WRITE SUPER-CID ON YOUR HTC DEVICE {YOU HAVE TO DO THIS ONLY ONCE}


    1. Download adb tools here: download for WINDOWS or download for LINUX or from the attachments below
    2. On your pc click on your local disk C: Drive (or D: drive for some) (WINDOWS users: Start > My computer > Local Disk (C)
    3. Create a new folder called "adb" and extract the files from adb.zip into it. Make sure it doesn't create another folder in the adb folder when extracting




    4. open command prompt (or terminal for linux) and type "cd" "followed by the path to your adb folder" (windows users can type "cd C:\adb")
    5. Ensure your phone is switched on (regular home screen) and connect it by USB in charging mode (Ensure usb debugging is on settings)
    6. enter the command "adb devices". This is to confirm your phone is connected. (It should come back with list of devices attached and your serial number)
    7. enter the command "adb reboot-bootloader". (nothing further required device WILL reboot in bootloader)

    IF it doesn't you can Manually put the phone in the bootloader/hboot mode
    Navigate to fastboot by pressing volume down and pressing power button to select (power off > vol down + power on)
    It will take you to the fastboot bootloader screen on your phone
    Connect your phone via USB
    Your Screen should now read fastboot USB

    8. enter the command "fastboot oem writecid 11111111"
    9. enter the command "fastboot reboot-bootloader (Wait for it to reboot the bootloader)
    10. enter the command "fastboot getvar cid" [it should confirm your CID is 11111111]
    11. enter the command "fastboot reboot"
    12. You can now flash any ROM you like.

    Big Thanks for tutorial (how to write super cid ) to @xl VipeR lx from XDA Developers
