Recommended Posts

Nope :) Said un rooted, also under boot load it showed everything normal after too. Can NOT find a counter anywhere but remember I'm a complete noob too.

I know this is kind of an old post now, but I have been thinking about rooting just to be able to install apps2sd since I keep running out of space.  This right here is still the issue I am worried about.  If you reflash with rsd, I don't think it removes root.  It did the same thing on my E2 that I previously had, and I had to re-root it, and then run the unroot program to get rid of root.  But there is still no unroot for the EM, so I can't decide whether to root or not.

Flashing stock via rsd does remove root. I've flashed it a number of times.

Hi JadeFalcon,

 

Since you have successfully flashed stock via rsd, can you please upload the JB flash file for the Elec M?

 

The file in the downloads section is broken. Thanks!

I thought I read last night that the file in the downloads section is just fine...

How are you trying to download it? Computer or mobile/phone?

Man-saturday, you posted in that other thread also about the link supposedly being bad and someone replied there. I recommend checking that answer and try a different way to download as I also just tried it just fine downloaded...

I've also done so successfully but it did not unroot till I did the ota update. So if it doesn't just do the ota afterwards and it should work.

Can anyone still confirm or deny that Motochopper will still root a EM 4.1.2 without ill effects?

I'm not sure why it wouldn't work anymore.  I don't believe there has been any software updates.  Honestly, I would just give it a shot.  Most of the root exploits have very little (if any) chance of bricking a phone.

 

Of course, make a backup first, and there's always RSD if needed.

Now that you're rooted check out "Xposed".  You'll have the ability to make your stock ROM (almost) as custom as you want.
