    Root? On. 602 ota update?

    Forgive me forum, for I have sinned! I am totally out of the loop. I have been on the tbh rooted version of 596 for months now. If I take on the 602. will I be able to use z4 to regain root?

    Now I see there is a 605... Wow! What would be my best path to getting to a rooted 605? The ota reminder I'm getting is for 602 :-)

    Install .602 first, then check for updates again, the .605 update from .602 is very small and won't take as much time. It is still rootable as well by the current root method.

    And always remember to read, read, read, and read some more!

    Thanks macpro. I'll give it a shot. Do you think it will accept the 602 ota, over the tbh rooted 596 file that I flashed?

    Possibly unless you froze bloat then it will just fail at install

    Hey that worked macpro. I am updated to 605. Now I still have superuser app in the tray, but no root. Upon reboot I get the little flashes saying that certain apps have been granted su permissions, but they obviously don't work will z4 get me root again? Geesh it's been a while since I have monkeyed with this stuff :-)

    ok, so I tried the root method for mac using terminal. after the first reboot, it says "failed because files already exist", and "your phone should be rooted" so I tried, and it isn't. I tried the root process again, and it said "hey weirdo your phone is already rooted" so I gave it a reboot just for fun, tried some of my root apps, and they don't work. I get all the little flashes after reboot saying that these apps have been granted s/u permissions, but when I try to use them, they don't work. any ideas??
