    [How to] Root 2.3.5/1.3.418 magic md5 method

    root created byphifc, and modified bybhigham with help from sd_shadow (aka themib)



    best option is DX2Batchroot_2013.exe below but there are 4 other options here


    The Short Directions


    download DX2Batchroot_2013.v2.exe
    updated SuperSU , fixed bootstrap install
    DX2Batchroot_2013.v2.exe http://d-h.st/Aw3 md5:8865080bedc78a6f81cb8c2a3033b23a


    watch the video By: Tomsgt


    turn phone on
    phone- enable usb debugging (menu/system settings/apps/developer options)
    connect phone to pc
    phone- change usb mode to charge only or pc mode (pull down from top notification bar
    pc- start program, (click on DroidX2_Root_2012.exe)

    just follow on screen instructions


    these are the details, but most is click enter on keyboard

    a file is pushed to your phone with adb
    phone will reboot to fastboot, all you will see on phone is moto boot logo dualcore screen
    click enter on pc
    two files will be flashed to phone
    phone will reboot
    when it has completed reboot
    click enter on pc
    phone will reboot again
    when phone has completed reboot
    click enter on pc
    files will be pushed to phone with adb
    phone will reboot

    phone will reboot to android recovery
    press both volume buttons when you see ! in a triangle with android andy
    wipe cache using volume buttons to scroll, select with power button
    when complete, select reboot with power button

    Done.





    if you want to know more, see the other options, read info below




    bhigham/beh and I have modified/combined a couple of root methods
    based on New root method for stock 2.3.4 (621/622) found (Droid2, R2D2)

    How this works
    Originally Posted by phifc
    There's an exploit in loadpreinstall.sh. It compares md5 sum files of preinstalled apps and if they're different, copies the md5 to the local cache. The preinstall just has an empty file in app/ so it will parse the md5 for it. Instead of an md5 sum, it contains a local.prop that allows adb root shell. So the system thinks it's copying the md5sum to the cache when it bounces off the symlink and overwrites the /data/local.prop, giving adb root on next reboot















    watch video By: Tomsgt

    5 options
    self extracting batch file preferred by most users, see poll, after you root go back & vote
    regular batch file same as first just have to unzip first
    linux/slitaz boot img, (like ezSBF)
    manual method using adb/moto-fastboot most complicated
    Voodoo method uses 2.3.4 sbf and other rooting method




    I have tested and they work

    Basic instructions/steps for batch files and slitaz

    2.3.5/ 1.3.418 can be rooted now
    but first you need to be on 2.3.5/1.3.418
    SBF and update.zip here All Droid X2 SBFs and OTA updates - xda-developers
    moto drivers need to be installed

    turn phone on
    enable usb debugging (system/apps/developer options)
    connect to pc
    start program, see instructions specified with the option you chose
    there are on screen instruction, but this is what will happen
    a file is pushed to your phone with adb
    phone will reboot to fastboot, all you will see on phone is moto boot logo dualcore screen
    click enter
    to files will be flashed to phone
    phone will reboot
    when it has completed reboot
    click enter
    phone will reboot
    when phone has completed reboot
    click enter
    files will be pushed to phone with adb
    phone will reboot
    when phone has completed reboot
    click enter
    files will be pushed to phone with adb
    phone will reboot to recovery
    press both volume buttons when you see ! in a triangle with android andy
    wipe cache using volume buttons to scroll, select with power button
    when complete, select reboot with power button
    done.

    when running the batch file or slitaz you may see these errors
    rm failed for /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5 no such file or directory
    no root.img.gz no such file or directory
    rm failed for /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5 read only file system

    that is fine, it will still work

    BSR/ System Recovery will also be installed

    Root DX2 2.3.5 batch file in self extracting exe
    DroidX2_Root_2012.exe
    download
    double click on DroidX2_Root_2012.exe to start
    follow onscreen instructions
    note: first reboot, goes to a nonlabeled fastboot mode, all you will see is moto boot logo dualcore screen just click enter to flash files

    Root DX2 2.3.5 batch file

    updated to SuperSU
    DX2_Batchroot.7z http://d-h.st/QOF md5: 616d974d4ddc0df5002285ece2ddb610
    download file
    extract with 7zip
    double click on rootdx2.bat to start
    follow onscreen instructions
    note: first reboot, goes to a nonlabeled fastboot mode, all you will see is moto boot logo dualcore screen

    and made a

    slitaz boot iso, like ezSBF
    Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso

    has options for D2, D2G, DX, and DX2
    burn to cd with imgburn, or flash drive use UNetBootin for Windows


    Manual method may update this later

    you need
    moto-fastboot.exe not fastboot.exe found in batch files
    adb files found in batch files
    Petes root tools Pete's Motorola Root Tools
    root.img found in batch files

    instructions
    extract any .zip or .gz
    move all files to same folder like C:\root to make it easy

    Enable USB debugging on phone
    open command prompt
    enter
    Code:
    cd/
    cd c:root
    adb shell rm /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5         ( don't worry if you see an error)
    adb shell ln -s /data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5
    boot phone to fastboot
    run commands
    Code:
    moto-fastboot.exe flash preinstall root.img
    moto-fastboot.exe reboot
    let phone boot complete, then reboot again (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
    command
    Code:
    adb shell
    should give you a root prompt (# instead of $)

    run petes root tools, zerg rush, or superoneclick
    then you are rooted


    VooDoo Method
    This is posted in several other threads, but not as the topic

    1 start with full stock 2.3.4/1.3.380,if you have rooted with anything other than Pete's Root Tools*, have altered/deleted stock file, or if you are already on 2.3.5/1.3.418 you have to SBF
    SBF to full stock 2.3.4/1.3.380 (VRZ_MB870_4.5.1A-DTN-150-30_1FF_01.sbf)
    read How to SBF an X2, ezSBF DX2, and Common X2 Questions and Answers
    if you don't want to lose data, don't wipe data (although it is recommended), unless you bootloop
    if you bootloop you have no choice, but to wipe data via stock recovery see Common X2 Questions and Answers

    2 Root with Pete's Root Tools

    3 install Voodoo OTA Root Keeper, backup su, then temp unroot (keeps backup)

    4 install update 2.3.5/1.3.418 , (Blur_Version.1.3.380.MB870.Verizon.en.US.zip)**
    a via over the air or
    b download, place in sd card root (not in a folder)
    md5 B127D3AF93FD6A75C3A3D897C6D0FCD1
    and install via stock recovery see Common X2 Questions and Answers

    5 restore root with Voodoo

    edit:

    *zergrush may remove stock files, to root, causing update to fail
    **updates are named by the version they are updating
    md5 checksum windows / android


    04 aug 2012 added slitaz iso using magic md5 method
    05 aug 2012 added batch methods
    11 aug 2012 added code wraps, video link, reworded, ...
    21 oct 2012 new pete's link
    02 feb 2013 revised the instructions again, to make more concise
    04 April 2013 updated to SuperSU DX2Batchroot_2013.exe DX2_Batchroot.7z
    06 Nov 2013 DX2Batchroot_2013.v2.exe updated SuperSU , fixed bootstrap install

    I installed Root Keeper, after SBF'ing my Verizon Droid X2 from 2.3.5 to 2.3.4.
    It said I wasn't rooted. (Doesn't it have to be rooted to SBF???)
    Tried Pete's Tools (twice). Didn't work.
    You guys all seem to say the same thing: 'it works - it's great, etc.'
    I am here to say that my fone WILL NOT ROOT. (According to VoodooOTA rootkeeper).
    What am I doing wrong?

    BTW, I read the "common questions" a lot of "what" not much (if any) "how". Interesting but not very helpful. I just want it rooted. I don't want a PHD in phone hacking (and I 'm a Web/App developer).

    Noit doesn't have to be rooted to sbf.... get on 2.3.4 stock, download pete's root tools on a computer. Plug in.your phone via usb, open root tools, follow on screen instructions. Once its rooted download and install voodoo root keeper. Back up root. Temporarily unroot, ota update to 2.3.5, open voodoo and restore root. I just did this a couple weeks ago.... worked fine.

    Edit: if you don't back up the root or temporarily unroot before updating to 2.3.5 then it wont work.

    recheck system version, you may still be on 2.3.5/1.3.418
    if so flashing SBF failed, try again till it say system version 2.3.4/1.3.380

    Thanks for the quick response(s):

    I mentioned that I was on 2.3.4. (Droid "about phone" says 2.3.4).

    I didn't do the "hold down button" RSD thing though; after running the ezSBF disk, it recognized in RSD from Windows(7-64), so I was able to RSD to 2.3.4. Was this wrong?
    Droid "About Phone" says 2.3.4.

    I then tried Pete's tools, no dice (although it said it worked).
    The Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper has no check box next to "device rooted"- just "SU installed", and "File System supports root protection").

    Suggestions?

    If you are 100% sure you are rooted... use ota rootkeeper now to backup root, temp unroot and update.... make sure you do those two things in order first.
